Infrared Heat Therapy

What is infrared heat therapy?

Infrared refers to the band of energy just below the visible color RED on the electromagnetic spectrum.  More specifically, "far infrared" refers to the longest wavelengths in the infrared spectrum (3-100 microns).  Far infrared waves are too long to be perceived by the eyes, and instead the body experiences the energy as a gentle radiant heat that can penetrate up to 1.5 inches (almost 4 centimeters) beneath the skin.

 

Infrared heat therapy is perfectly safe, as it is commonly used by hospitals to keep premature babies warm. 

Why use infrared heat therapy with yoga?

Most conventional heated yoga studios used a "forced-air" system, which blows hot air from a duct system.  When you walk into the room, you feel the rush of hot air over your skin and your body begins to sweat.  The sweat that you produce is mainly water and electrolytes.

At Apex Yoga, our top of the line infrared panels are ductless, noiseless and do not blow dust or allergens into the air. The panels emit far infrared light waves (7-12 microns) that penetrate deep into your tissues to begin a detoxification process. Far infrared light waves vibrate the water molecules in your body, shaking free toxins and impurities that you can release through sweat.  Since the air remains cooler, far infrared heat therapy feels gentler on your body than other types of heat therapies. The sweat you produce with infrared heat therapy is unique in the amount of measurable toxins released, including heavy metals (like mercury and lead), cholesterol, and uric acid.
