In this blog post, we are going to explore what you need to know about Infrared Light Therapy.
What is Infrared Light Therapy?
Infrared light is the invisible part of the sun’s light spectrum with the ability to penetrate human tissue, giving a soothing, natural warmth. It is naturally occurring from the sun and is the basis for infrared sauna therapy. Full Spectrum Infrared technology is therapeutic because it is 95-99% efficient at heating the body directly rather than simply heating the air. It raises the core body temperature to produce a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level where most of the toxins reside.
History of Infrared Therapy
Historically, heat treatments have been used to help heal the body for thousands of years. “Hot air baths” and sweat lodges were used for busting stress, increasing relaxation, and detoxification among Native Americans, Eastern Europeans and in Ancient Chinese Medicine.
Many years ago, before the invention of focused light therapy, basic saunas were created by building a fire directly under an enclosed sitting area. The sauna was heated with hot rocks and other materials burning on a fire that carried heat and smoke up to the lodge.
About 100 years ago, advancements in sauna therapies were made when “light-near infrared lamp saunas” were first created by Dr. John Harvey Kellogg. Since this time, they have come a long way and today they are used by holistic practitioners and various healers around the world.
