Far Infrared Therapy
The mat you see on the treatment table in the picture above is a Far Infrared Therapy Mat. It’s got up to 21 different layers in it and contains amethyst, jade, and tourmaline crystals. It produces Far Infrared (FIR) heat, hot stone therapy, and produces negative ions (also produced by waves at the beach – they make you feel good). It has advanced EMF shielding for protection.
What is Far Infrared Therapy?
Far infrared therapy is a type of heat therapy that uses FIR to penetrate deep into the body’s tissues, muscles, and bones. The heat can penetrate up to 8 inches into the body.
This heat is absorbed by the body and has been shown to increase blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and stimulate the immune system. It also promotes relaxation, relieves stress, and improves overall health.
Far infrared therapy (FIR) works by emitting far infrared light, which is a type of electromagnetic wave that has longer wavelengths than visible light. So you can’t see the light it produces. The Mat has advanced EMF shielding and protection, so there’s no danger from EMFs.
The Benefits of FIR
- Reduces Stress and Fatigue: FIR therapy is known to reduce stress and fatigue by promoting relaxation and improving overall well-being. It can help reduce the levels of cortisol, a hormone associated with stress, and increase the levels of endorphins, which are natural painkillers and mood boosters.
- Improves Blood Circulation: FIR therapy can improve blood circulation by increasing the production of nitric oxide, a natural chemical that helps widen blood vessels and improve blood flow. This can help reduce the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke.
- Relieves Pain and Inflammation: FIR therapy can relieve pain and inflammation by increasing blood flow to the affected area and reducing swelling. It is commonly used to treat chronic pain conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and back pain.
- Boosts Immune System: FIR therapy can stimulate the immune system by increasing the production of white blood cells and antibodies, which are essential for fighting off infections and diseases. This can help reduce the risk of infections and improve overall health.
- Detoxifies the Body: FIR therapy can help detoxify the body by increasing sweating and promoting the elimination of toxins through the skin. This can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases and improve overall health.
- Promotes Weight Loss: FIR therapy can promote weight loss. It is known to be effective in reducing cellulite and belly fat, which is associated with an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. By heating up the cells to a certain temperature, they’ll dump fat into the surrounding tissue that can then be transported out of the body. FIR and red light therapy are the only scientifically proven natural way to get rid of cellulite.
- Improves Skin Health: FIR therapy can improve skin health by increasing blood flow to the skin and promoting the production of collagen, a protein that is essential for healthy skin. It can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve overall skin texture and tone.
The mat lives on the treatment table and is included in all treatments!
My patients are loving the mat. Nobody wants to get off the treatment table because it’s so relaxing!
Several people have asked about getting their own mat, so here’s the link if you want to check it out. Here’s a link to the one I have in the office. It comes in different sizes and there are mats with different crystals and features. I like this one the best. It’s on sale at the moment, and the price is great. They’re normally 2-4 times higher (or more) in price, so it’s a screaming deal.
They have other mats, in different sizes, so look around their website to see what works best for you. If you have questions, let me know. I’m glad to help.
If you haven’t tried the FIR mat yet, come in and try it out. It’s the best and fastest way to de-stress!
You can schedule a 30-minute stress reduction session to try it out.
The mat is also an integral part of body sculpting, which is a natural and safe way to get rid of cellulite. No dangers of liposuction, fat freezing, etc. For more information about Body sculpting, click here.
Note: The Far Infrared Mat cannot be used if you are pregnant, or have a pacemaker.
