If you are trying to tough it out and convince yourself that all will be better tomorrow, an infrared lamp may do you a world of good. For anyone with muscle aches and pain, tendonitis or just in the throes of aging, an infrared lamp can boost circulation and give you new vitality.
The far infrared mineral lamp features a round plate coated with a proprietary mineral clay formation consisting of 33 earth elements essential to the human body. When activated, this mineral plate emits a special band of far infrared rays ranging from 2 to 25 microns in wavelength, an amount that coincides with the wavelengths and intensity of the electromagnetic radiation emanating from the human body.
Far infrared rays are invisible waves of electromagnetic radiation of wavelength greater than that of the red end of the visible spectrum. They are capable of penetrating body tissues to a depth of 10mm. Some examples of infrared rays you might find in your home are heat lamps, steam radiators and incandescent light bulbs.
Infrared rays are used therapeutically to promote muscle relaxation, and increase circulation to a part of the body. Far infrared rays speed up the inflammatory response, and it should be noted that the inflammatory process is the body’s way of initiating healing. Chronic inflammation is a reaction of tissue to irritation, injury or infection.
