Far Infrared therapy (FIR) involves the use of Far Infrared wavelengths to heal, soothe, stimulate and detoxify the body, as well as
the soul. Far Infrared frequencies are waves of energy that we cannot see with the naked eye. Far infrared energy has the ability
to penetrate all layers of the human physical body, penetrating deep into the tissues, muscles and bone.
Far Infrared Therapy uses energy to slightly increase the surface temperature of the body. When we induce a small temperature increase or a fever, we can enhance our immune system to fight off illnesses. Our bodies as well as the sun emit FIR energy at all times. In Ancient asia, palm healing was used to pass these infrared rays from one person to another as a means of hands on healing.
In current times, it is known aas Reiki.
The Yogis of Ancient India also used FIR far infrared from their hands in palm healing, and
particularly found it useful to place their palms over the eyes in the case of
eye dryness or eye pain. Many types of thermal healing have been used in
ancient China, India, Japan, Northern Europe, ancient Rome and the United States
