Why FAR Infrared ?
When toxic gases such as sulphur dioxide and carbon dioxide or toxic substances such as lead, mercury, or chlorine meet large water molecules, water clusters encapsulate them. Where these toxins accumulate, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired.
Detoxification begins when a 9-10 micron FIR wave is applied to these large water molecules and the water begins to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds of the atoms that are holding together the molecules of water. As the vibration continues, breakdown of the water molecules occurs and encapsulated gases and other toxic materials are released.
Scientists in Japan report that in the FIR therapy the treatment of clogged capillary vessels, a similar process occurs: heat from infrared radiation expands the capillaries and then initiates the process to dissolve hidden toxins.
How does it Work?
FAR Infrared waves are invisible waves of energy capable of penetrating deep into the human body where they elevate the temperature of the body to 42 degrees Celsius or 107.6 degrees Fahrenheit and above. These infrared waves are often referred to under the blanket term as FIR, standing for FAR Infrared R And FIR stands for a region in the infrared spectrum of electromagnetic radiation that is defined as radiation with a wave length of 15 micrometers to 1mm. Visible light photons have wavelengths between 400nm and 700nm (nanometers).
This equipment emits FAR infrared waves out of the back of the seat when you sit in the seat.
There is a timer that counts down from 20 minutes and you will note the heat bar under the timer which monitors your body temperature and adjusts the infrared waves accordingly. You will probably see the bar moving
These waves penetrate the body to a depth of about 2 inches or 6 centimeters warming the body – the muscles, other tissues and organs, your lymph, and blood.
How is it beneficial to me?
By warming the lymph, circulation is speeded up through the body.
Increased circulation of the lymph and organs boosts the metabolic rate of the body aiding lymphatic cleansing, eliminating toxins, lactic acid and carcinogenic heavy metals, and serious cell detoxification
In warming the body FAR Infrared also expands capillaries increasing blood flow, regeneration, circulation and oxygenation.
Increased circulation helps the body to detoxify, promoting the elimination of fats, chemicals and toxins from the blood :- namely free fatty acids and subcutaneous fat associated with aging and fatigue, carcinogenic heavy metals, lactic acid, excess sodium and uric acid. Uric acid causes inflammation which we know is bad for the body – causing problems such as arthritis, stiffening of joints, gout and even diabetes. Infrared radiation works against inflammation at a cellular level and this is very important. In BodyScience we address the body at a cellular level which is where we have to look if we are going to lead you to high level health.
In causing fat to be burned faster, FAR Infrared radiation also aids in weight loss
As muscle fibers are warmed it reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms reducing swelling, inflammation and associated pain. It’s particularly effective for back, shoulder and neck pains. Clients who come in with back pain often leave pain free.
FIR stimulates production of white blood cells in bone marrow and killer T-cells by the thymus gland and so it strengthens and supports the immune system.
The elevated internal body temperature and production of T-cells aids in the destruction of cancerous cells.
FAR Infrared also stimulates enzyme activity as it emits photons which help release enzymes which stimulate macrophage activity increasing the elimination of damaged and diseased tissues. This aids in the destruction of cancerous cells.
It also promotes rebuilding of injured tissue by having a positive effect on fibroblasts (connective tissue cells necessary for the repair of injury). Furthermore, it increases growth of cells, DNA syntheses, and protein synthesis all necessary during tissue repair and regeneration. Excellent for healing burns, scar tissue and skin problems such as acne and skin breakouts.
FIR aids in the creation of Nitric Oxide which expands capillaries and increases circulation keeping your heart healthy, even reversing heart disease, and discouraging strokes.
The role of Nitric Oxide was discovered in 1991. It plays an important role in a whole range of pathological disorders from diabetes to hypertension, cancer to drug addiction, stroke to intestinal motility, memory and learning disorders to septic shock, sunburn to anorexia, male impotence to tuberculosis.
For your Personal use
The FAR Infrared therapy is often prescribed as part of the BodyScience programmes, however, once you have experienced the detox facility, you are free to return to use it as often as you wish, during your stay.
