- Infrared Heat Sessions -
Infrared light therapy is a revolutionary, non-invasive therapy method that is used to treat a variety of common and complicated conditions. It helps accelerate healing using very short wavelengths of light passed directly through human tissue. The natural healing properties of light particles used in infrared light therapy also makes it a great treatment choice for many soft tissue and tendon symptoms, such as arthritis.
If you’ve ever used a hot pack to warm up a sore muscle before exercise or a sporting event, then you know that heat can increase blood flow and reduce muscle stiffness. Infrared heat is a form of energy that allows you to heat your body more effectively and penetrate more deeply than other types of heat.
Infrared heat helps with muscular injuries, it gets to the root cause of pain and other issues increasing blood flow to the injured muscle which increases healing. In addition to heating deeper into your muscles, infrared heat also releases nitric oxide. Nitric oxide improves circulation and increases the oxygen and other nutrients coming to help heal the injured area. To treat a specific injury, such as a strained hamstring, with infrared heat a we use an infrared light therapy device and focus specifically on that and the surrounding area.
