Infrared heat therapy delivers penetrating wavelengths of red light to treat pain and inflammation and promote cellular repair. Benefits include detoxification, pain relief, reduction of muscle tension, relaxation, mood enhancement, improved circulation, weight loss, skin purification, lowered side effects of diabetes, boosting of the immune system and lowering of blood pressure. Infrared heat therapy is included in all acupuncture treatments.

Unlike ultraviolet light, which can damage the skin, infrared light enhances cell regeneration through stimulation of the mitochondria, the energy powerhouses of cells. Infrared heat has an anti-inflammatory effect, stimulates the secretion of endorphins and increases serotonin, making it an excellent treatment for depression and chronic pain.

It also stimulates the production of nitric oxide which helps relax the arteries, prevents blood from clotting and clumping in the vessels, and regulates blood pressure. By improving blood circulation, nitric oxide provides more oxygen and nutrients to injured tissues. Thus, infrared light hastens wound healing and stimulates the regeneration of injured tissues, reducing inflammation and pain.

Studies have shown benefits for patients with cardiovascular disease, diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia.

Our infrared lamps also contain a heated mineral plate made of a proprietary formula of 33 trace elements, which further stimulate the body’s natural healing properties.
