Far Infrared

What are Far Infrared Rays?

Far Infrared Rays

Infrared light has a longer wavelength than the visible spectrum and thus cannot be seen by the naked eye. Far infrared rays (FIR) have the longest wavelength of any kind of infrared light, and thus are the only kind of infrared light that can deeply penetrate the human body.

Far Infrared Rays are emitted by:

  • The Sun
  • Thermal FIR Heaters
  • Tourmaline a semi-precious naturally occurring gemstone
  • Ionic Balance products containing Tourmaline

When emitted by the sun or our Ionic Balance Bands, FIR penetrates through the skin to the subcutaneous tissues and is transformed from light energy into heat energy.

At its normal core temperature, the human body emits heat energy at a wavelength of 5-15 microns.

Some studies have shown that FIR energy can penetrate organic matter 80 times deeper than other heat waves!
