Far-infrared radiant (FIR) heat is a completely safe form of naturally occurring energy that heats objects by a process called direct light conversion.  Radiant heat is also called infrared heat or infrared energy.  Direct light conversion warms only the object and does not raise the temperature of the surrounding free air.  This type of energy travels 2-3″ deep into the body and is thought by some to increase circulation and nourish damaged tissue.

Why Is FIR important to the human body?

FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect.  The human body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability. When FIR penetrates through skin to the subcutaneous tissues, it transforms from light energy into heat energy.  The thermal effect within the deep layers of the tissues causes blood vessels and capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation, and the heat produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating.
