The Healing Power of Light
Natural light from the Sun does not only contain visible light, but also light from a wide spectrum of wavelengths. When we go out on a sunny day, we absorb all of the sun’s rays to help stimulate metabolism and produce bone-strengthening vitamin D.
A large proportion of the sun’s energy is in the invisible spectrum. One of these is light in far Infrared band beyond the red end of the visible light spectrum, which brings a variety of benefits.
Far infrared naturally produces some warmth and can be helpful for enhancing blood circulation, reducing pain, strengthening the cardiovascular system, easing joint stiffness and inflammation, and revitalizing skin cells.
The healing properties of far infrared have been studied for over 30 years. Studies also demonstrate that far infrared helps enhance circulation in the skin, modulate sleep, ease pain, protect against oxidative stress, and relieve inflammation.
By isolating the far infrared from all of the sun’s rays in our product, we removed the harmful ultraviolet rays as well as an unnecessary waste of visible light energy. Far infrared is one of the safest and most useful segments of energy that comes from the Sun.
Our product is NOT a heating pad, which heats from the external. Heating pads offer little value in providing healing effects. Our product uses far infrared light that penetrates 2-3 inches into our skin and fat tissue and warms our tissue from within.
In summary, here are the main benefits far infrared light has on humans:
- reduce tension and stress
- help the body remove toxins through perspiration
- improve lymphatic flow
- enhance circulation in the skin
- modulate sleep
- ease pain
- protect against oxidative stress
- relieve inflammation
- strengthening the cardiovascular system
- easing joint stiffness
- revitalizing skin cells
- boost the immune system
