As often as possible in your normal daily schedule, in the car, in the office or while watching a movie, etc.
The Far Infrared Heating Pad is designed to be used either on top of or underneath your body. This is an individual’s choice as to what area to blanket with the therapeutic effects of the FAR heat. The soft format allows the pad to conform to the shape of the couch or chair or lounger as well as drape over the body area that the individual cares to treat. This is safe and can be used as long as you want for the desired results.
Far-Infrared Heat is the invisible part of the Sun’s spectrum, not to be confused with ultraviolet light which may damage your skin. FIR is the safest form energy that is directly transmitted onto objects because of its specific wavelength. The human body can easily absorb far-infrared heat because of its deep penetrating ability. Studies have shown that far infrared waves can actually penetrate up to 2-3 inches deep into muscular tissue and ligaments. The thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues cause blood vessels in capillaries to dilate which improves blood circulation and promotes health and wellness.
It reproduces the beneficial energy of the sun, which provides fuel for our bodies cellular growth and helps support the body’s immune system.
The ThermoLax Far-Infrared Heating Pad bring two different beneficial therapies to the individual.
Far-Infrared Heat is a type of Deep Heating Modality: In contrast to other superficial heating modalities(e.g., hot water baths, hot packs, electric heating pads, warm compresses) that usually do not heat deep tissues, including muscles. Far-Infrared Heat penetrates the subcutaneous layer beneath the skin surface, which usually acts as a thermal insulator and inhibits heat transfer.
FIR radiant heat therapy is a type of conversion heat treatment. This form of heating involves heat transfer by conversion of energy from a wave length energy state (e.g. light, sound) to another (heat). The high-energy photons penetrate the tissues. This energy is converted to heat by exciting the water molecules (resonance). (eg. Ultrasound, diathermy modalities) Far infrared waves can actually penetrate up to 2-3 inches deep into muscular tissue and ligaments. Deep and long lasting, usually lasting 1 to 1.5 times longer than the treatment application.
