Infrared phototherapy is a medical spa procedure that uses infrared radiation to stimulate healing and promote health. This therapy is based on the use of infrared rays, which are in the electromagnetic spectrum between visible light and radio waves.
During an infrared phototherapy session, the patient is exposed to infrared radiation emissions from a specially designed device. These radiations penetrate deep into the tissues and have the ability to produce beneficial therapeutic effects.
Infrared phototherapy has multiple health benefits. These include:
- Muscle and joint pain relief: Infrared radiation can penetrate deep into the tissue layers, reaching joints and muscles. They can help reduce inflammation and muscle tension, thus relieving discomfort and pain.
- Stimulating blood circulation: Infrared radiation can dilate blood vessels, increasing blood flow to treated areas. This can be beneficial in improving overall circulation, oxygen and nutrient delivery to the tissues, as well as removing toxins from the body.
- Muscle relaxation and stress reduction: Exposure to infrared radiation can have a relaxing effect on the muscles and nervous system, helping to reduce stress and body tension.
- Improved skin appearance: infrared phototherapy can help cell regeneration by stimulating collagen and elastin production in the skin. This can lead to more elastic, firmer and healthier skin.
