7 Radiant Health Benefits of Infrared Heat

Written By: Ryan Winters

With many emerging health trends lately, it’s hard to determine which ones are truly beneficial and which ones are health hoaxes. Infrared heat therapy is one of those emerging trends with the science to backup its beneficial claims. 

Unlike traditional heat therapy methods, which primarily rely on warming a metal heating element, infrared heat therapy harnesses the power of infrared radiation to penetrate the body’s tissues, offering many unique benefits. In this post, you will find everything you need to know about the research and health benefits of infrared heat therapy including:

  • What is infrared heat?
  • HeatWave Technology 
  • Unique benefits of infrared heat
  • How infrared heat differs from conventional heat

We will dive into the world of infrared heat, exploring its health advantages and highlighting how it differs from conventional heat therapy. Whether you’re seeking relief from pain, stress reduction, or improved overall well-being, understanding the potential of infrared heat therapy may just be the key to unlocking a healthier, more balanced life.

What is Infrared Heat?

Infrared Heat is a type of therapeutic heat that uses invisible light waves. According to an article written by Dr. Stephen Ornstein, the light waves penetrate deep into the body of the user, approximately 2 to 3 inches beneath the skin’s surface. These light waves are safe for the user and do not have any known damaging effects.

HeatWave Technology:

Our power lift recliners feature HeatWave technology, a gentle yet effective infrared heat. When you sit in one of our chairs you can feel the deep penetrating far infrared heat transport your mind and body into a blissful state, restoring your body from the inside out. Using our HeatWave technology can help you relax, sleep better at night, and combat stress.

Unique Benefits of Infrared Heat:

  • Promote overall mind & body wellness
  • Provide pain relief
  • Enhance relaxation
  • Improve circulation
  • Lessen Insomnia
  • Reduce anxiety
  • Stimulate cellular recovery

Infrared heat is used to manage a variety of types of pain, aid in muscle recovery, and decrease inflammation. The heat from infrared lights is used to manage pain by penetrating deep into the skin to treat the muscle experiencing discomfort.  Infrared heat aids in muscle recovery and decreases inflammation by enhancing blood circulation of the user. The muscles affected are directly warmed by the infrared rays and therefore influence healthy circulation. This increase in blood circulation has other beneficial effects like decreased stress and strengthened immune system.

Infrared heat’s gentle and penetrating warmth not only provides effective pain relief, reaching deep into muscle tissues, but also induces a profound state of relaxation. By enhancing blood circulation, infrared heat contributes to improved oxygen and nutrient delivery to cells, promoting  overall health. Furthermore, it has the potential to reduce insomnia by relaxing the body and mind, allowing for better sleep quality, while simultaneously diminishing anxiety levels.

Differences Between Infrared Heat and Conventional Heat:

Infrared heat, in contrast to conventional heat sources, harnesses the power of infrared light waves to create a distinct sensation of warmth and provide a range of therapeutic benefits. This innovative heating technology operates on the principle that it can penetrate much deeper into the body compared to traditional heating methods. As mentioned by Zachary Baker in a blog post, traditional heating pads typically only penetrate about ¼ of an inch below the skin’s surface.

In contrast, infrared heat has the remarkable ability to penetrate much deeper, reaching approximately 2.4 inches below the skin. This enhanced depth of penetration has significant implications for its therapeutic applications, as it allows for more effective targeting of muscle tissues, joints, and even internal organs, thereby providing relief from pain, improving circulation, and promoting relaxation and healing.

The unique characteristics of our HeatWave technology make it particularly well-suited for various purposes, including pain management, muscle recovery, and even improved health. Its ability to generate heat that works on a deeper level within the body sets it apart as an attractive option for individuals seeking effective methods of alleviating discomfort and improving overall well-being.
