What is Far Infrared?

  • Far Infrared Rays are waves of energy, totally invisible to the naked eye, capable of penetrating deep into the human body, where they gently elevate the body’s surface temperature (107.6 F and above, enables destruction of cancer cells), and activate major bodily functions.
  • Since ancient times, people have believed that exposure to sunshine can maintain and even enhance health.
  • Sun therapy is a form of natural FIR thermal therapy.
  • Far Infrared Rays are the invisible rays of natural sunlight that have the longest wavelength.
  • However, sunbathing should only be enjoyed in moderation since sunlight contains ultra-violet rays which are potentially damaging.
  • Due to today’s high levels of stress and toxicity the body’s natural ability to heal, is often compromised. Some of us have reached critical stress and/or toxic levels and we do not have the energy to detoxify or repair our bodies.
  • The body generates Far Infrared energy that normally occurs within our tissues and is associated with a variety of healing responses.
  • Far Infrared Thermal Treatment can leave you feeling relaxed and energized.

Benefits of Far Infrared Thermal Therapy

Long Lasting Pain Relief (in Muscles/Joints/Nerves)

  • Science has proven beyond any doubt that infrared light therapy is a safe, drug-free and effective method for long-lasting pain relief and injury-healing – anywhere in your body.

This includes:

  • Muscle pain
  • Joint inflammation and pain
  • Spine injuries (bulging/herniated discs)
  • Sports injuries
  • Nerve pain (pinched nerves/Sciatica/Neuropath)

How to Use it at Home

  • For back pain: a jade/amethyst infrared heating pad/mat.
  • For Arthritis Joint pain: either a heat lamp or a flexible IR heating wrap you can wrap around your joint.
  • For Fibromyalgia pain: a home infrared sauna – to treat your entire body at once, while detoxing from toxins at the same time.

Full Body Detox

  • Infrared saunas are considered 7 times more effective at detoxifying heavy metals and other environmental toxins.
  • Infrared sauna treatments heat your body directly, inducing a rise in your core temperature.

The results:

  •  A deep sweat at a cellular level, where toxins reside (such as cadmium, lead and mercury).
    Enhanced metabolism, blood circulation and tissue oxygenation.

How to Use it at Home

  • Home infrared sauna – either buying your own infrared sauna, or building your own near infrared sauna.
  • Portable infrared sauna/dome – a portable infrared sauna is less costly, and you can keep your head out during treatment, which many people like.

Calorie Burning & Weight Loss

Here are a few amazing facts about infrared therapy and weight loss:

  • First: While you relax in an infrared sauna, your body is actually working hard.
  • It’s working to produce a lot of sweat.
  • This hard “work” results with calorie burning.
  • According to a Journal of the American Medical Association report, you can burn as many calories as you would be jogging or rowing (200 – 600 calories) – in a single far infrared sauna session.

How to Use it at Home

  • Infrared sauna treatments – you can get them at your local spas, but purchasing your own FIR sauna will save you a ton of money in long term.

Boosting Immunity & Cancer Healing

How does your body react when it is fighting viruses and bacteria?

  • You get a fever.


  •  Because raising your core body temperature boosts your immunity (by producing more white blood cells), while creating a heated environment in which bacteria can’t survive.
  • Because heating your body also causes blood vessel dilation, which enhances circulation and oxygen delivery throughout your body.
  • So, what do you do when you feel like you’re coming down with a cold or flu?
  • You hit the infrared sauna to rally your body’s natural defenses.

What about cancer?

  • Raising core body temperature has been proven many times to inhibit the proliferation of certain cancer cells (including breast, lung, and tongue cancer), according to Medical Oncology in London.
  • According to Dr. Mark Sircus, best-selling author of many allopathic medicine books, the easiest, safest and most effective way of treating most disease, including cancer, is to increase body temperature with infrared therapy.

Raising Low Body Temperature

As you probably know, 98,6 F is considered the ideal body temperature for optimal health.
It helps maintain optimal blood circulation, vitality and strong immune system.

  • You get a fever.
According to this study, Low body temperature is one of the little known causes for obesity. Why? because Lower body temperature = slower metabolism.
If you suffer from chronic low body temperature, you can safely use any infrared therapy device which treats your entire body: An infrared sauna/ portable IR sauna

Injury recovery

  • Physiotherapists and sports medicine specialists are well aware of the many studies proving that phototherapy reduces pain and inflammation caused by muscle injuries, spine injuries and even broken bones.
  • Photo-biostimulation is proven to be beneficial for all sorts of injuries, including:
    • Muscle injuries
    • Nerve injuries/damage
    • Joint injuries
    • Broken/fractured bones

How to Use it at Home

  • Using IR for injury recovery at home depends on the treatment area size and structure.

Chronic Wound Healing

Here’s a mind-blowing fact:

  • According to many studies, cells exposed to near-infrared light (energy just outside the visible range) from LEDs – grow 150% to 200% faster than cells not stimulated by this light.

How does it work?

  • Near infrared wavelength increases microcirculation and formation of new capillaries.

The result:

  • The wound area receives more oxygen and nutrients to help with the natural wound healing process.

Lowering Blood Pressure

What can one hour of FIR therapy effect high blood pressure?

  • According to medical researchers from Germany, one hour inside an infrared sauna can significantly reduce your BP levels, total peripheral resistance and cardiac ejection resistance.

How does it work?

  • According to the journal of the American Medical Association, infrared heat therapy lowers BP by promoting the same physiological process which happens when you do aerobic exercise.
  • Your core body temperature slowly rises and stimulates blood vessel dilation. This results with increased blood flow, heart rate and cardiac output – without you moving a muscle.
  • It’s exercising to reduce your blood pressure – without exercising.

How to Use it at Home

The 2 best ways to use infrared therapy to reduce BP levels are:

  • Infrared sauna treatments.
  • Sleeping on a full body Amethyst Biomat.

Stress Relief and Sleep Problems

  • It’s the first thing you’ll experience when you finish a full body infrared therapy treatment:
  • Complete relaxation.
  • Muscle relaxation, pain relief, and mental clarity.

How does it work?

  • Infrared therapy is proven to balance you Cortisol (“stress hormone”) levels.
  • Infrared rays penetrate your body and promotes muscle relaxation and endorphin (“feel good hormones”) release.
  • Repeated infrared sauna session (or Biomat treatments) over several weeks can reduce stress levels long after you’ve finished treatment.

How to Use it at Home

  • To manage stress levels and sleep problems, use either a portable home infrared sauna, or the Amethyst Biomat.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

  • Infrared sauna treatments can treat and relieve almost all symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, including:
  • Fatigue lasting for 6 months or more
  • Memory and concentration problems
  • Sleep problems
  • Headaches
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Digestion and immunity issues

How to Use it at Home

  • Use an infrared sauna or portable IR sauna for 15 minutes every day, followed by 30-minute rest under a few blankets – along with a large glass of purified water.

Fibromyalgia Pain

  • Infrared saunas have been shown to reduce Fibromyalgia pain (and other symptoms) up to 78% (source).
  • The infrared heat is especially good for people with Fibro, because the heat is powerful and deep, yet surprisingly gentle and easy to tolerate.

How to Use it at Home

  • Infrared sauna treatments – 15 minutes once a day (140 F), followed by resting under a blanket for 30 minutes
  • Infrared heating pads – can be used for localized pain.

Allergic Rhinitis

  • Hay fever symptoms occur sue to inflammation in the nose, when your immune system “overreacts” to allergens in the air.

The results:

  •  The symptoms of eye itching, nasal itching, nasal stuffiness, rhinorrhea and sneezing were all significantly improved.

How to Use it at Home

  • You can use IAT (infrared allergy treatment) at home via a special infrared light therapy nostril device (a “nasal warmer”).


  • Technology has advanced considerably, and there are various ways to deliver far infrared treatments, including FIR emitting heat lamps and garments made with special fibers that are impregnated with FIR emitting nano particles. This device is superior because the head is not covered, so that a patient can breathe well while the body is covered warm. Also, the surface emitting FIR is positioned in close proximity, therefore the FIR rays penetrate into the body without loss.
  • Every year more scientific research proves IR amazing health benefits and uses – all of them can be used safely at home.
