Perspiring is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate causing the body to burn calories. Studies have shown that a 30 minute session can burn an upwards of 600 calories, can lower weight & waist circumference in just a 3-month period.
Infrared heat penetrates tissue, joints, and muscles to reduce inflammation, relieve tension, chronic pain, conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia, speeds up recovery time and can increase flexibility up to 3x. MIR can help to expand blood vessels and increase circulation allowing more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body resulting in reduced pain and a faster healing process.
During a 10-20 minute session, heart rate increases by 50-75%, which provides the same metabolic result as physical exercise. However, there is a nominal effect on blood pressure because the heat also causes blood vessels in skin to expand to accommodate increased blood flow. Regular use can significantly stimulate blood flow up to twice the normal rate.
The skin’s appearance improves as pores open from the deeper sweat induced by infrared therapy which improves the skin’s circulation, expels dirt and chemicals and removes dead cells on the surface of the skin resulting in a soft, clear complexion. In a study published in The Journal of Cosmetic and Laser Therapy, after 12 weeks of NIR therapy participants experienced a reduction in wrinkles and crow’s feet, as well as improved overall skin tone, including softness, smoothness, elasticity, clarity and firmness.

Infrared properties can help improve cell health, enhance muscle recovery and boost immune defenses. A NASA study concluded that NIR LED technology could quadruple cell health and tissue growth.
