Why Infrared Therapy is Good for You

How good are nice, warm hugs? Olaf the snowman would agree – warm hugs are the best. They release endorphins, and they help us feel safe and secure. What if you could capture this feeling and improve your health at the same time? That’s what infrared therapy can offer you in the form of the Wellness Cocoon Pro.

Do you remember the last time you spent a day at the beach? Naturally, we know it is important to slip, slop, slap – so you would have applied sunscreen so you didn’t get burnt, but you still felt hot, right? Well that’s because sunscreen stops the ultraviolet rays (UV) damaging your skin and causing you to burn, but the heat you feel comes from Infrared Rays (IR) – the Wellness Cocoon Pro has harnessed the power of full spectrum infrared to offer significant health benefits – with profound benefits from it’s broad spectrum of IR. 

What is full spectrum infrared?

Full Spectrum Infrared refers to the 3 infrared light waves – near, mid and far. Each variant of infrared has its own benefits. The Wellness Coccon Pro has been custom designed to harness the power from all three forms with significant benefit. Infrared light waves have the unique ability to penetrate the body, through all layers of the skin and tissue into the soft tissue, muscles, ligaments, joints and bone. By harnessing the 3 waves, the results can be quite amazing!

Near Infrared

The Benefits:

  • Improved Cellular Health
  • Improved Wound Healing
  • Skin Rejuvenation
  • Pain Relief

This wave of infrared is responsible for the energy you feel at the end of a session – this wave energises cells and stimulates the body to heal and thus relieve pain. Near infrared is absorbed by the cells through the photo-receptors contained in each cell. Once this invisible ray has been absorbed, the mitochondria (the energy center of the cell) commences changes to the metabolic system and starts an array of processes at a cellular level. This is where regeneration and detoxification commence. These changes increase blood flow throughout the body and nutrients are delivered more effectively especially to areas that may have been suffering or deficient. Because of these processes and the impact of near infrared, inflammation and pain within the body are rapidly reduced.

Mid Infrared

The Benefits:

  • Pain Relief
  • Improved Circulation
  • Cardiovascular Health
  • Weight Loss

Visibly, we see the skin start to flush when mid infrared is penetrating the tissue. This is because mind infrared is mostly responsible for the increase in circulation as these waves penetrate deeper into the body. Because of the depth of these waves it is possible to leverage your health with infrared therapy as it is similar to that of a cardio workout – at least at a cellular level! Use of mid infrared in sauna therapy has been shown to increase blood flow significantly and its effects continue well into the week after your session! With greater blood flow comes a less burdened lymphatic system this means your blood is cleaner and your immune system can be optimized.

Far Infrared

The Benefits:

  • Weight Loss
  • Detoxification
  • Blood Pressure Reduction
  • Relaxation

Far infrared light heats the body directly, This means, rather than having you in a pod of hot air your body core temperature is raised. This produces a deep detoxifying sweat which is 17% more effective than traditional saunas. When sweat is released, so are the toxins within that water that is stored deeply in the tissues. Far infrared can also assist at blood pressure management, improved heart health and weight loss – it is possible to burn up to 600 calories in a 45 minute session!
