Fir stands for far infrared ray or radiation and is often referred to as the light of life for its importance in growth and nature. Around 80% of the suns rays fall within this spectrum of light. Far infrared heat is renowned for its energizing and deeply penetrative powers. The far infrared rays have deeper penetrative powers than other heat sources achieving 4-5cm depths within the body in a short time. When using the sauna blanket the head/brain is not heated. This allows sweating without overheating the bodies’ core temperature.
Slimming Regular use of the FIR sauna blanket can promote weight loss and enhance body shaping. Our blanket is popular with spa therapists and is often used in conjunction with slimming oils.
Beauty Purpose The skin can be left cleansed and glowing following a fir sauna session
Detoxification Fir saunas promote detoxification of the body. The FIR heat has a vibrating effect within cells and toxins are mobilised for excretion. These can include heavy metals, pesticides, sodium, nicotine, alcohol, and bad cholesterol etc. The FIR heat improves the flow and circulation of oxygenated blood. It also stimulates a host of metabolic activities that enhance detoxification
Immunity An artificial fever is created when taking a sauna. This offers both a preventative and curative approach to the treatment of illness
Cancer. Infrared therapy/ hyperthermia is becoming a popular complementary therapy for cancer.
Fatigue A process called resonant absorption occurs during a FIR sauna session. This happens when the infrared frequencies match the frequencies within the human body. The cells absorb the FIR energy and resonate.
Treatment of aches and pains For many years infrared heat has been renown for its healing and soothing qualities. With absorption of FIR heat, blood vessels dilate and the flow of oxygenated blood to tissues is enhanced. FIR can also be used to thwart the build up of lactic acid in muscles. This is often a source of pain following physical exertion.
General fitness. Taking a fir sauna exercises the cardiovascular system. The heart works harder to prevent the body from overheating, in turn increasing microcirculation. Fir sauna therapy was pioneered by NASA in the 1980's in space shuttles to maintain the cardiovascular health of astronauts who subject to zero gravity for a long period of time which can have a negative impact on cardiovascular health.
Relaxation The blanket can also be used for general relaxation purposes. Infrared therapy can help calm the nervous system, relieve tension and enhance mood. It may benefit those who suffer with depression or insomnia.

5 15 microns
Around 90% of far infrared rays emitted are within the 5- 15 micron range. This is the most effective range for human health. A recent FIR testing report highlights how the FZ 200 blanket outperforms its competitors. Graphs from competitors show a larger proportion of rays outside the 5-15 micron range
