Far Infrared Therapy (FIR) utilizes far infrared radiation to stimulate local and general blood circulation in order to treat various disorders and to relieve pain. It may also be used for muscle disorders and rheumatic diseases or in the relief of pain caused by minor muscle damage.
Far infrared radiation is electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths from the invisible part of the spectrum. These light wavelengths are longer than those of the red part of the visible spectrum and are shorter than microwaves. Far infrared light occur in sunlight and in incandescent lamps. Infrared radiation is felt as heat.
Far infrared light penetrates to a depth of about 30-40 mm which makes it more effective for bones, joints, deep muscles, etc.
The photons of light energy enter the body as negative ions. This calls upon the body to send positive ions like calcium among others to go to the area being treated. These ions assist in firing the nerves thereby relieving pain. Infrared treatment is successfully used in pain therapy, dermatology and rheumatology with excellent therapeutic effects in the treatment of shoulder humerus periarthritis, tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.
Far Infrared Therapy is applied when patient is receiving acupuncture treatment. The combination of these two will help the patient to get better results.
The SE Health Lamp (The Special Electromagnetic Health Lamp) used in our clinic is different from conventional infrared lamp and microwave therapeutic device. The SE Health Lamp features a round plate coated with a proprietary mineral formation consisting of 33 elements essential to the human body.
When activated by an built-in electric heating element, this mineral plate emits a special band of electromagnetic waves ranging from 2 to 25 microns in wavelength and 28 to 34 mw/cm2 in intensity that coincide with the wavelengths and intensity of the electromagnetic waves released by a human body and are consequently absorbed by the body (so-called selective absorption). This absorbed electromagnetic energy has been found to yield therapeutic effects on the human body by
- helping generate various beneficial biochemical stimuli that the body may lack due to illness, accident or injury;
- accelerating the decomposition of unstable structures such like dead cells; and
- enhancing the body's function of adjustment and immunity
