Improves Skin

Far Infrared treatment helps improve general skin tone through increased blood circulation and low temperature perspiration. An increase in blood circulation encourages a healthy flow of nutrients to your skin that in turn helps relieve acne, eczema and psoriasis. It will also encourage the healing of lesions, minor cuts, burns and scarring. Light, unnoticeable perspiration helps purge clogged pores of deeply imbedded impurities and dead skin cells, leaving the skin feeling fresh and glowing.

Health

Today many of us experience constant mental, physical and environmental stress which is a sure fire recipe for poor health. The constant stress of modern living has resulted in Fatigue, Exhaustion, Weakened Immune function, Toxicity, Poor Digestion and an overall decline in health.

The body produces nearly 50% of its energy in the form of Far Infrared energy for the purpose of healing, repair and regeneration of the body. The body is similar to a battery that is constantly being charged and discharged. When under constant stress the body battery will often discharge and remain rundown. The result is poor health.

The Benefits of Far Infrared Energy includes relief from:

Detoxification using Far Infrared Therapy

The build up of toxins in a healthy body can impair normal blood circulation, reduce our energy levels and are often at the core of many health problems. These Toxins that have accumulated in the body are encapsulated by clusters of water. As far Infrared light is applied to the body these water molecules and toxins breakdown into smaller elements. These are easily eliminated and released from the body. A thorough detoxification occurs and optimum energy levels are restored.

The Far Infrared will have energised the deep body tissues improving blood flow in the surrounding areas increasing oxygen delivery as well as more rapid removal of any localised toxins.

A far Infrared Healthcare programme also promotes elimination of fats, chemicals and toxins from the blood including:

What are Far Infrared Rays (FIR)

Far Infrared rays are invisible light that was discovered by a scientist named Sir William Herschel in 1800, he found out that Far Infrared Rays are a spectrum of sunlight.

This research led to the discovery that there were not only the known visible rays of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet plus the invisible rays, Gamma and Ultraviolet but also a previously unknown ray was later named Infrared.

About 80% of sunlight is made up of Far Infrared Rays. This band of light is not visible but can be felt as heat.

The Far Infrared Energy is absorbed very easily by the human body and helps in all aspects of bodily growth and development. Far Infrared Energy is very healing and rejuvenating. It energises the cells, inner tissues, glands, nerves and organs beneath the skin.

Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Nobel Prize winner and the discoverer of Vitamin C, believed that all energy from the sun has profound effects on us. His research showed that light can literally alter the body's basic biological functions.

Far Infrared Rays are Safe and Beneficial

Can the Far Infrared Healthcare System harm me in any way?

By using the system you will bring your immune system into balance, your body will function more efficiently and your health will improve.

Can Far Infrared damage healthy cells whilst eliminating unhealthy cells?

How Far Infrared Rays (FIR) work

The Intensity of the FIR produced by the human body constantly fluctuates. When its intensity is high we feel healthy and are able to overcome ailments. When the FIR begin to decline, we are subject to attacks of illness and tend to age more quickly.

Far Infrared treatment stimulates cellular metabolism which increases the body's regenerative ability and helps restore the proper function of the nervous system, When any tissue in the body is exposed to FIR the body's healing processes are activated.

Studies suggest Far Infrared energy helps to maintain general health and prevent disease. FIR rays are capable of penetrating deep into the human body, gently expanding capillaries and stimulating blood circulation.

So FIR rays stimulate the production of cell tissue and rapidly promote the regeneration of skin and blood tissue.

How does Far Infrared Healthcare System improve so many different conditions?

  1. Stress is known to impair the functioning of the immune system. Far Infrared Energy promotes a state of deep relaxation and a sense of wellbeing which reduces the effects of stress and help to boost the immune system.
  2. By expanding capillaries, stimulating the blood circulation and increasing the metabolic exchange between blood and tissue, which in turn beings the immune system into balance.

What is a healing Crisis?

A healing crisis occurs when the process of detoxification causes toxins to be released faster than they can be eliminated. This may be experienced as aches and pains, or general uneasiness. When this happens, tell the Melville Clinic and avoid further treatment for a couple of days. When you feel comfortable and the excess toxins have been eliminated you may then resume your programme.

Far Infrared Rays are Waves of Energy

Far Infrared Rays are waves of energy that are healing and rejuvenating. These invisible rays posses great penetrative power and are able to reach into the cells, inner tissues, glands, nerves and organs beneath the skin. The rays gently elevate the body's temperature and activate major bodily functions.

Over 30 million people worldwide have successfully received Infrared treatments. Health and medical professionals in Germany, Japan and Canada have been successfully using infrared systems to rehabilitate and treat a multitude of ailments.
