Far Infrared - the healthy part of sunlight!
Infrared light is everywhere, even in the palm of your hand.
Sunlight is part of a wide spectrum of frequencies, including ultraviolet and infrared rays. Visible sunlight is in the middle of this spectrum. At a higher frequency, visible light changes to ultraviolet rays that can cause sunburn.
At a lower frequency, however, sunlight changes to gentle Far Infrared rays. It is these rays that allow the sun to warm you, even on a cold winter's day. Varying in wavelength from 0.76 to 1000, Far Infrared light is everywhere, even in the palm of your hand; as Far Infrared heat is produced as a natural by-product of energy production within the body.
The Light Frequencies
Within this wide spread of frequencies the 6-14 Range is the most therapeutic to the human body, split evenly between the 9.4 pivot point of peak human output. The Infrared elements in the Oasis Body Therapy massage tables are designed to operate within this range to maximize the effectiveness of your therapy.
Far Infrared means deep heat
Because infrared penetrates safely and comfortably up to 4.5cm / 1 3/4 inches into your body, even your deep tissues and organs are stimulated, Hard to reach impurities are eliminated through your skin using lower, comfortable temperatures.
Far Infrared Increases blood circulation and strengthens your cardiovascular system
As your circulatory system is stimulated, your heart works harder pumping more blood, achieving the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. By widening your blood vessels and enriching your blood with oxygen you feel more energetic, and yet very relaxed from the massage you will have received during your treatment.
"Regular far-infrared therapy may impact a similar stress on the cardiovascular system as running, and its regular use may be as effective [at] burning calories."
Journal of the American Medical Association.
Infrared, ideal for detoxification
Dr. Toshiko Yamazaki, M.D. owns a clinic in Japan where she has done extensive research on the therapeutic uses of far-infrared. In her book, "The Science of Far-Infrared Therapies," she explains that one of the reasons FIR (Far-Infrared) has beneficial results in a variety of illnesses is the ability of FIR waves to remove toxins, which are often at the core of many health problems. Since humans are bio-accumulators, toxins that cannot be expelled immediately, are stored in our bodies.
For example, when toxic gases such as sulphur dioxide, carbon dioxide or toxic substances such as lead, mercury or chlorine meet large water molecules, they are encapsulated by the clusters of water. Where these toxins are accumulated, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. However, when a 7 to 14 micron FIR wave is applied to these large water molecules, the water begins to vibrate. This vibration reduces the ion bonds of the atoms which are holding together the molecules of water. As the breakdown of the water molecules occurs, encapsulated gases and other toxic materials are released, and processed by the body and ultimately released through the kidneys and urinary system. (Thus, there is always the need to drink plenty of water after a massage)
