What is Infrared (IR)

Infrared is the beneficial radiation of the electromagnetic spectrum emitted by the sun. These rays penetrate the skin and stimulate the cells, blood circulation, immune system and waste elimination. Numerous clinical tests show that infrared rays are effective in relieving pain.

How Infrared Therapy Works

The light energy penetrates through multiple layers of skin to reach deep muscles and nerves. Your cells absorb energy from the light and become more active. Blood flow increases to the area, as well, to further support cellular regrowth and regeneration. This combination of activities works to reduce inflammation and repair wounds or injuries.

Infrared light therapy devices can target most areas of the body (except for the eyes). Among the most popular uses for infrared light are to treat the following conditions or symptoms:

  • Neck aches and stiffness
