It May Be Hot Out but the Health Benefits of Far-Infrared Heat are Year Round

Yes, it may be ultra hot where you are but that means to many - more outdoor sporting activities. If you are experiencing pain from sports, gardening or other outdoor activities, the Thermotech digital, infrared Heating Pads may offer the relief you are looking for.

Thermotech digital, infared Heating Pads are the first medical grade electric heating pad available to the public. Digital moist heating pads, as opposed to dry forms of heat, draws moisture from the air and retains it in specially designed high-grade ceramic heating element cells and delivers that moist heat deep into your muscle tissue for maximum relief similar to a deep tissue or shiatsu massage.

Moist heat increases circulation and speeds recovery by bringing in fresh blood cells and taking away wastes which hinder healing. This is known as electric fomentation therapy. 
 

What is Far-Infrared Heat?

The human body can easily absorb far‐infrared heat because of its deep penetrating ability. Studies have shown that far infrared waves can actually penetrate up to 2-3 inches deep into muscular tissue and ligaments. When far infrared heat penetrates through the skin into muscular tissue and ligaments, it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues cause blood vessels in capillaries to dilate which improves blood circulation and promotes health and wellness.
Far Infrared Heat is the invisible part of the Sun’s spectrum, not to be confused with ultraviolet light which may damage your skin. FIR is the safest form energy that is directly transmitted onto objects because of its specific wavelength. The human body can easily absorb far-infrared heat because of its deep penetrating ability. Studies have shown that far infrared waves can actually penetrate up to 2-3 inches deep into muscular tissue and ligaments. The thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues cause blood vessels in capillaries to dilate which improves blood circulation and promotes health and wellness.
Infrared heat is found in near infrared wavelengths (which heats the surface first and the interior through conduction) and in far infrared heat (which sends deep penetrating heat to create a uniform warming effect). Far infrared heat can be found in two forms, direct and indirect. Direct far infrared provides the deep heat to warm you up without raising the temperature of the surrounding air. Indirect Far infrared heat comes to us through absorbing the excess energy transmitted from plants or animals that are in close proximity to us.
Picture before using products with heat. Yellow indicates poor blood circulation.
After using heat-enhanced products for 30 min. The orange color indicates better blood circulation.
After using heat-enhanced products for 60 min. The red color indicates improved blood circulation.
