Far infrared radiant heating (FIR), which can be used to treat a variety of diseases, illnesses and conditions is one of the most exciting technologies in holistic medicine.
What is Far-Infrared Radiant (FIR) heat?
Far-infrared radiant heat (FIR), also known as radiation heat and infrared, is a small band of energy that occurs naturally at the level of 5-15 microns. Direct light conversion heats objects using FIR. This allows the object to penetrate deeper but doesn’t increase the temperature of the surrounding air. FIR heat can penetrate 2 to 3 inches into tissues. It is safe for humans and is thought to increase blood circulation, encourage tissue repair, and promote blood flow. Scientists have developed cameras that can detect infrared heat, which is invisible to the human eye.
What is Far Infrared Therapy?
Far infrared therapy can be used in medical, dermatological, and rehabilitation clinics around the world. Far infrared saunas can be used to administer the therapy. EMX ceramics infrared jewellery is a practical and easy way to apply infrared therapy every day far infrared heating pads.
What are the benefits of far-infrared radiant treatment?
Pain Relief & Healing
Far-infrared radiant heating increases blood flow to the area being treated. The increased oxygen supply and nutrients reduces pain, joint stiffness, muscle spasms, inflammation, and speed up healing of damaged tissue. This treatment is particularly effective for sprains and strains, bursitis (peripheral vascular diseases), arthritis, chronic pain in the joints, muscle spasms, and a range of soft tissue injuries.
Radiant heat promotes muscle relaxation, which in turn increases comfort, reduces stress, and induces sleep. Research has shown that FIR exposure for just one hour can significantly lower blood pressure.
Cosmetic Skin Improvements
Far infrared heat can be used to boost collagen production and reduce wrinkles. Acne is commonly treated with the Cool Touch and Smooth beam infrared laser systems. These devices emit beams that shrink the skin’s sebaceous glands, virtually eliminating acne. Far infrared can be used for aesthetic and deep skin cleansing purposes.
Blocking Electromagnetic Fields
Study in Japan and Sweden has shown that far infrared radiant warmth counters the negative effects from electromagnetic fields emitted by man-made structures such as high-tension power lines, cell phone towers, and computer display terminals.
Far infrared heat can be used to treat gum inflammation, tooth pain, muscle spasm, and tooth pain. Far infrared heat is used by many Japanese dentists to reduce gum inflammation and pain. One example is Dr. Don’s EM-X ceramics.
There are many more uses to come…
Far infrared therapy has many uses according to anecdotal evidence from all over the world. Although studies are still ongoing, it is possible that far-infrared therapy could be used for treatment.
- Tumors and cancer
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Abdominal distention
- Weight loss
- Body odor
- Crohn’s Disease
- Radiation sickness
- Chronic middle-ear inflammation/infection
- Skin conditions such as eczema, dandruff and psoriasis.

What is far infrared therapy? Can it be used to treat so many different conditions?!
Far infrared therapy is thought to improve white blood cell function and overall immune system functionality. This treatment can also be used to treat a wide range of diseases and injuries.
