The Benefits of Far Infrared Light, Massage and Heat Therapy

Quantum X – A new form of massage that Targets pain using a handheld LED wand.

Far Infrared Therapy (FIR) is a safe, non-drug and natural alternative therapy for healing and thus relieving pain. It can be used in the treatment of a variety of health problems such as arthritis, muscle pain and joint stiffness.

  • FIR light penetrates the skin and is then absorbed by the mitochondria – the energy powerhouse of the cell. The energy-carrying molecule found in the cells of all living things is called ATP (adenosine triphosphate). By increasing the function of the mitochondria using FIR, a cell can make more ATP.  Because of this increase in metabolism of the collective cells, healing is stimulated in muscle, bone and subcutaneous tissue. FIR gives the cells a ‘full tank of fuel’ and speeds up the healing process relieving pain more quickly. 
  • No other source of heat therapy can penetrate as deeply into the muscles as Far infrared waves which penetrate up to 4 cm (1.5”) deep into tissue to generate increased circulation and warmth providing immense relief to muscles and joints. The gentle heat produced in FIR heat therapy exerts an analgesic effect and can help reduce or eliminate chronic pains
  • With the FIR wand , the light, gentle vibration and heat are actually targeted to the effected area, making it possible to speed up tissue repair.
  •  Despite the heat induced, FIR therapy does not cause any significant rise in core body temperature or in blood pressure, which makes it safe for people with cardiovascular problems.

“LED” stands for Light Emitting Diode, it is a computer chip encased in a glass-like resin, which emits therapeutic wavelengths (or colours) of light energy,”

LED colours for pain are Red and Infrared (Invisible to the human eye) 

RED and INFRARED – wavelength 620 nm – 670 nm (Red) – Infrared  -700 nm to 1200 nm

Near-infrared LEDs will appear unlit because their energy is not visible to the human eye. However, they are just as powerful as the red you can see and actually penetrate the body deeper.

When there is injury, disease or overuse, pain is the communication between the body and the brain. Healing is the best way to alleviate pain, rather than masking it through the use of pain killers. Drugs can offer relief, albeit with physical and mental side effects but are not likely to remove the source of the pain.
