Infrared Heat, Photon Red Light and PEMF Therapy
About Infrared heat therapy
Infrared heat therapy transmits far infrared radiation in the 2-50 micrometre range. The mineral layer includes around 33 trace elements which radiate far infrared emissions when heated to the right temperature. Far infrared heat is usually used on either your abdomen, feet or the site of pain or injury and is used to improve blood circulation in the smallest blood vessels and loosen connective tissue to help relax muscles. Each treatment includes a session on an Infrared heat, Photon Red Light and PEMF therapy matt that is embedded with crushed gemstones.
PEMF stands for pulsed electromagnetic fields. PEMF treatment involves sending energy waves towards areas of pain in the body at a cellular level. As a result, overall wellness levels are improved and the body may function more efficiently. PEMF is a relatively new therapy in the medical community but is increasing in popularity. It’s completely safe, effective and a nice side effect is that it helps to calm the nervous system as you are lying on the table. Many patients report a feeling of deep relaxation and calm during treatment.
Photon Light Therapy
Low-level light therapy is currently being utilized in many different areas of medicine and its applications and benefits are constantly being studied. Photon therapy uses visible red lights at a wavelength of 660 nanometers. When the lights touch the skin, they penetrate the body’s cells and tissues, forming nitric oxide and stimulating the synthesis of ATP which is essential for the metabolism of all cellular regeneration. This promotes healing and may increase energy levels to help create an overall feeling of wellness. Photon Light is completely non-invasive and can be utilized on its own or in conjunction with PEMF and Infrared heat therapy.
WHAT CAN THESE THERAPIES BE USED FOR?
Infrared Heat, PEMF and Photon Light therapies have many known benefits, including increased circulation, relaxation of body tissue and decreased pain. These therapies are also useful for:
- Promoting blood circulation (especially for pain, menstrual disorders and digestive issues).
- Providing effective relief for sore, stiff muscles and joints by directing heat deep into the tissues of the body.
- Relieving the pain and discomfort of ligament damage (sprains and strains), muscle spasms and chronic pain conditions.
- Stimulating collagen production to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- Treating acne and other skin problems by reducing inflammation and bacteria.
- Stimulating the body’s own healing responses.
- Minimizing the pain and discomfort associated with nerve disorders, sciatica and various forms of neuropathy.
- Reducing inflammation associated with autoimmune conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia.
