The ancient tradition of Chinese Palm Healing and Yogis in India has used the healing properties of far infrared rays for over 3,000 years in the same way as Reiki healers do. Recent research in Taiwan has demonstrated the far infrared energy emissions of Chi Gong masters to big significant. This type of “thermal” therapy can be traced back thousands of years, to the Finns, Romans and Native Americans. Sunshine is a natural form of FIR, however one needs to be careful due to the ultra-violet rays here.
Far Infrared Heat and therefore crystal therapy benefits include:
Far Infrared expands capillaries which stimulates increased blood flow, regeneration, circulation and oxygenation. Alleviation of breathing problems and congestion.
Far Infrared stimulates enzyme activity. Far Infrared emits photons - photons help release enzymes - enzymes stimulate macrophage activity increasing the elimination of damaged and diseased tissues - Nitric oxide is released which expands capillaries and increases circulation.
Far Infrared boosts metabolism and enables serious detoxification - FIR heat aids lymphatic cleansing - enables elimination of toxins, lactic acid and carcinogenic heavy metals, serious cell detoxification.
Far Infrared may induce the killing of varied pathogenic (disease causing) bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites.
Far Infrared relieves nervous tension and relax autoneuro muscles thereby helping the body make the most of its intended healing abilities. FIR reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms, as muscle fibers are heated. Rapid reduction of swelling, inflammation and associated pain. Relaxation of muscles and relief of muscular aches - reduces back, shoulder and neck pains.
Far Infrared strengthens the Cardiovascular System by causing heart rate and cardiac output increase, and diastolic blood pressure decrease - Extensive research by NASA in the early 1980's led to the conclusion that far infrared stimulation of cardiovascular function would be the ideal way to maintain cardiovascular conditioning in American astronauts during long space flight.
Far Infrared improves general body functions, and relieves tiredness and stress in both body and mind.
