Sweating is a great way to burn calories and rid your body of unwanted toxins, and Infrared therapy can help your body release a number of toxins, including heavy metals like mercury and lead, and environmental chemicals. The benefits don’t stop there.
With infrared technology, you can also lose weight, relax, relieve unwanted pain, increase your circulation, and purify your skin.
According to a 2012 report published by doctors at Wellman Center for Photomedicine of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, technological advancements have resulted in infrared sauna devices that deliver far-infrared light wave radiation (FIR) directly to the human body without any bands needed. These are considered safe, effective and widely applicable for healing many inflammatory disorders.
A research article, “A single treatment, using Far Infrared light improves blood flow conditions in arteriovenous fistula“. Thirty patients with a native AVF in the forearm were included. Each patient was his/her own control. Ultrasound examinations were performed before and after a single FIR treatment.
The results shows that, a single FIR treatment resulted in a significant increase in blood velocity over the AV fistula.
