FIR Technology stands for Far Infrared Ray Technology and it is often used in detox foot baths.
What exactly is it and how does it work?
Far Infrared Rays fall in between visible rays and microwave rays on the light spectrum. Similar to the sun, they penetrate skin and radiate gentle heat throughout the body.
Countless tests and studies of Far Infrared Rays and their effects on the body have shown that they relax muscles, reduce tension, increase relaxation, and strengthen immune system function. FIR also helps dilate blood vessels and increase capillary blood flow, which helps transport more oxygen and nutrients to cells and dispose of metabolic waste.
The United States Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health reports that studies have proven that chronic and acute exposure to Far Infrared Rays on human skin significantly increased blood circulation. On rats, FIR exposure improved and regulated sleep patterns. When FIR was administered to samples of toxin-containing water, the water molecules vibrated and then released gases and other toxins. And finally, people who slept with FIR discs in their beds reported substantial improvement in their overall health.
