Far Infrared

Sunlight consists of different wave lengths of light. When combined they produce the "white light" that we experience every day. Infrared light is in this spectrum's lower range, and although its rays aren't visible to the eye, it generates the warmth we feel on bright sunny days.

The complete spectrum of sunlight consists of visible and invisible rays. The visible rays are red, orange, yellow, green, indigo, blue, and violet in color, known as rainbow colors. The invisible rays are Ultra Violet, X-rays, Gamma, Cosmic, Microwave, Long Wave, Electrical Wave, and Infrared.

Infrared rays vary in wavelengths, and are categorized as near infrared, mid infrared and far infrared.

While these rays share the attributes listed below, they are most noticeable in far infrared waves.

When Far infrared rays penetrate the skin, they come into contact with protein, collagen and fats, By stimulating micro-vibrations far infra-red cause a thermal reaction which elevates tissue temperatures. The human body then reacts by dilating all the blood vessels regardless of size. Tissues are revitalized because of the improved (micro & macro) circulation.

It should be noted that an important principle of traditional Chinese medicine is that good blood circulation promotes good health. Conversely, an obstructed blood flow will increase the likelihood of disease and pain. Other ancient Asian therapies such as the Japanese "Palm Therapy" and China's "Qi Gong Therapy" are also based on the premise that the human body itself, is capable of radiating Far Infrared rays.

Infra-red therapy has proven to be effective because its "hot rays" exhibit analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic capabilities. Therefore, some far infrared products are useful in the treatment of sub-acute or chronic inflammations, and for trauma, scar adhesions and nerve pain.

Our Pet Shampoo (GREAT for People, too) contains a material that emits Negative Ions and Far Infrared rays when friction is applied. Other more rudimentary forms of this compound have been around for years and many people have had unexpected pleasing results.
