What is near-infrared light?

Near-infrared (NIR) is closest to the visible light spectrum with wavelengths between 700 – 1400 nm. Near-infrared feels hot because it does not penetrate deep into the body, otherwise magnifying its energy on the skin. This composes most of the sun’s infrared spectrum and plays a critical role in ATP production in our cells.

Some of the many benefits of near-infrared therapy…

Near-infrared wavelengths have been found to have a variety of beneficial properties:

  • Help rejuvenate the skin 
  • Aid in relief for surface level pain 
  • Are a great source of Vitamin D

The most popular uses for near-infrared sauna therapy…

  1. Topical skin therapy. Because near-infrared doesn’t penetrate deep into the body, the vast majority of its energy and healing properties apply directly to the skin. This can help improve healing to surface level injuries like cuts, bruises, and scarring, while also promoting skin cell health.
  2. Near-infrared light has gained increased attention for its ability to activate anti-inflammatory processes. This is thanks to it being able to increase blood flow to inflamed areas and stimulate the mitochondria of cells, producing more anti-inflammatories and other disease-fighting antioxidants.
