Over the last 25 years, Japanese and Chinese researchers and clinicians have completed extensive research on far infrared medical treatments and report many amazing discoveries. Their findings support the health benefits of far infrared therapy as a method of healing.

"Far infrared therapy created weight loss through sweating, the energy expended to produce sweating and through direct excretion of fat." - Japanese Clinical Study.

"Whole body far infrared heat relieved pain from burns and decreased healing time with less scarring." - Japanese Clinical Study.

Dr. Masao Nakamura of the O & P Medical Clinic in Japan has reported great success with the use of far infrared treatment for: whiplash, rheumatism, insomnia, menopause, sciatica, acne, shoulder stiffness, arthritis, ear diseases, and gastroenteritis problems.

Dr. Toshiko Yamazaki, MD - author of 'The Science of "Far-Infrared Therapies' - has extensively researched the uses of Far Infrared Therapy for natural body healing.

Dr. Sasaki Kyuo, M.D. has done extensive research on the therapeutic uses of far infrared therapy. She is the author of 'The Scientific Basis and Therapeutic Benefits of Far Infrared Ray Therapy'. She claims that Far Infrared Therapy:

  • Improves micro circulation by exerting strong rotational and vibrational effects at molecular level.
  • Enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients in the blood cell to the body's soft tissue areas.
  • Promotes regeneration and fast healing.
  • Increases metabolism between blood and tissue.
  • Enhances white blood cell function, thereby increasing immune response and the elimination of foreign pathogens and cellular waste products.
  • Removes accumulated toxins by improving lymph circulation which is often at the core of many health problems.
  • Stimulate the hypothalamus, which controls the production of neurochemicals involved in such biological processes as sleep, mood, pain sensations, and blood pressure.

A major health benefit of infrared sauna is in the area of reduction of pain in muscles and joints. Hyperthermia or heat therapy helps to reduce pain, inflammation and edema by acting on nerve endings as well as encouraging production of endorphins, which act as natural analgesics. "Much of the stiffness aches and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated." - USA Clinical Study.

The Mayo Clinic published a study in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology, 2001 to determine whether infrared sauna therapy improves blood vessel function in patients with risk factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes and smoking. Results: significantly lowered blood pressure, weight loss, lowered blood sugar, significantly increased blood flow, lowered cholesterol and lowered triglycerides. This suggests a preventive role for sauna use for arteriosclerosis.

Otto Warburg was nominated for the Nobel Prize in 1944 for research concerning photosynthesis in connection with the chemotherapeutics of cancer and the use of x-rays. His subsequent research showed that far infrared impacts cancer.

The McGraw-Hill Encyclopaedia of Science and Technology reports medical practitioners make use of infrared radiant heat to treat sprains, strains, bursitis, peripheral vascular diseases, arthritis, and muscle pain.

The book ‘Therapeutic Heat and Cold’ by editors Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin states Infrared Heat Therapy does the following:

> Decreases joint stiffness.
> Relieves muscle spasms.
> Increases blood flow.
> Leads to pain relief.
> Affects soft tissue injury.
> Increases the extensibility of collagen tissue.
> Assists in resolution of inflammatory infiltrated, edema, and exudes.
