Far Infrared is Safe - Your Body Generates Far Infrared
Approximately 50% of the energy generated by your own body is in the form of Far Infrared rays. So FAR infrared is completely safe. (J Cardiol.2008)
The human body generates FIR between 8-14 microns. When our bodies are heated by FIR rays the activity level of our atoms are increased and heat can be generated.Albert Szent-Gyorgi, Nobel Prize Winner and the discoverer of vitamin C, believed that all energy from the sun has profound effects on us. His research showed that light can literally alter the body’s basic biological functions.
Night vision goggles used by the military detect the Infrared Rays generated by the body.Our bodies radiate Far Infrared energy through the skin at 3 to 50 microns, with most output at 9.4 microns. Our palms emit Far Infrared energy too, from 8 to 14 microns. Palm healing, an ancient tradition in China, has used the healing properties of Far Infrared rays for 3,000 years. Yogis in India also employ palm healing and recommend it especially for relieving eyestrain.
Feel the Energy With Far Infrared
When the body absorbs Far Infrared Rays it is like being in the sunshine the body is warmed up, you feel nice and relaxed full of energy.
A Gentle Sauna Expereince
Far Infrared Rays penetrate the body deeply helping gently warm your body at low temperatures - even as low as 370C which is body temperature. Far Infrared rays warm your body directly and NOT the AIR.
Conventional saunas however can be very uncomfortable as they operate at high temperatures between 65 to 950C, using the hot air or steam to heat your body. The skin becomes heated and transmits this heat to the cells closest to the skin.
Far infrared Rays Do Not Damage Skin
Far Infrared rays are safe and beneficial rays from the sun. (J Cardiol.2008)
Far infrared Rays Do Not cause sunburn and damage your skin & should not be confused with Ultraviolet Light which can cause sunburn and damage the skin.
The Far Infrared Experience - How does it Feel
Far Infrared Rays are the invisible light waves from the Sun that warm our bodies directly, without heating the air. They penetrate deeply into our body helping make us feel warm, energised and healthy.
We can experience Far Infrared Rays on a cold cloudy day. When the sun comes out we become warm, when the sun disappears we once again become cold.
The air temperature did not change at all, yet we became warmer in the sun due to the Far Infrared Rays.
Far Infrared Rays help warm up the body at low temperatures even less than your own body temperature (380C). What is unique about Far Infrared is that you can still sweat at such low temperatures.
Experience Far Infrared:
♦ The warmth from the sun
♦ The heat radiated by the body is Far Infrared
♦ Lying on a Beach the sand emits FarInfrared Rays helping you to relax and detox.
♦ Heat emitted from a persons hands when we are touched
♦Your palms emit healing Far Infrared energy too, from 8 to 14 microns.
Far Infrared is Light
Far Infrared (FIR) rays are an invisible spectrum of sunlight discovered by a scientist named Sir William Herschel in 1800. His research led to the discovery that there were not only the known visible rays - red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet plus the invisible rays, Gamma and Ultraviolet but also a previously unknown ray later named Infrared.
Far Infrared Rays are Invisible
This invisible band of light is felt as heat. Approximately 80% of solar energy is made up of FIRand 60% is between the range of 10-20 microns.
Far Infrared Explained - The 3 Types of Infrared Rays
Wavelengths of light can be measured in millimeters but are usually measured in units called microns just because the measurements involved are so small; for example 0.00076mm.
1 Micron = 0.001mm
So these wavelengths of light are as you guessed very very short.
Near Infrared: 0.76 – 1.4 microns
Infrared A (IR- A) (0.00076mm - 0.0014mm)
Mid Infrared: 1.4 – 3 microns
(IR-B) (0.0014mm- 0.003mm)
Far Infrared: 3 – 1000 microns
(IR-C) (0.003mm – 1.00mm)
Near Infrared is the shortest wavelength through to Far Infrared which is the longest ranging from 0.003mm – 1mm.
Note:Different organisations provide variations on the above classification. These divisions are not precise and vary according to the publication you read. We refer here to the system recommended by The International Commission on Illumination (CIE).
Far Infrared, Good Health &
How Far Infared Works
Far Infrared energy is absorbed very easily by the human body and Far Infrared Sauna Therapy is being included in detoxifcation programmes by a growing number of Doctors and healthcare professionals worldwide.
Due to today’s high levels of stress and toxicity the body’s natural ability to heal, is often compromised. Some of us have reached critical stress and/or toxic levels and we do not have the energy to detoxify or repair our bodies.
The body genrates Far Infrared energy that normally occurs within our tissues and is associated with a variety of healing responses.
Far Infrared Thermal Treatment can leave you feeling relaxed and energised.
Healthcare and medical professionals in Japan (and more recently in Canada) have been using far infrared thermal systems to rehabilitate and treat a multitude of ailments for many years now.

Far Infrared Sauna's Can Be Used at Low Temperatures
With Far Infrared Thermal Treatment there is no need to use high temperatures to sweat. You can work at a little above room temperature and still benefit. Far Infrared Thermal Treatment is able to warm the body without raising air temperature. It is this unique quality that makes it such a gentle and comfortable treatment.
Conventional saunas, Turkish baths and spa therapies often involve high temperatures ranging from 65-950C and can cause a dramatic increase in body temperature. In fact many people do not tolerate extreme heat at all well.
This is something the whole family can use and it is just so portable, easy and convenient to use at home or to travel with. Toxicity is a fact of life today and just as you would go the gym and exercise regularly to keep fit, similarly it may be wise to regularly detoxify due to our constant exposure to toxins.
