Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System relieve pain?
A. The FIR heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speed up the healing process. Many people use FIR heat as a successful way to help alleviate the pain or discomfort of arthritis, rheumatism and muscle spasms.
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System control weight?
A. Perspiring is part of the complex thermo-regulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. The process requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water soluble at 110?F and the body sweats out fats and toxins.
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System provide the same effects of exercise?
A. The heart receives a workout similar to a 6-mile run in a 20-30 minute Sudatonic™™ Infrared blanket session and the body perspires the same amount as a 6-mile run. Infrared blankets are perfect for those that do not have time for regular exercise or suffer from injuries that inhibit rigorous activity.
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System eliminate toxins?
A. Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and carcinogenic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel) and mercury accumulate in the body during modern daily life. The body eliminates most toxins naturally by sweating but the process is sometimes too slow. Infrared heat stimulates the sweat glands that cleanse and detoxify the skin. The FIR heat technology simply speeds up the body's natural process!
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System improve the immune system?
A. Most illnesses are accompanied by a fever. During a fever, the body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. Often misunderstood, this rise in temperature is a natural stage of the immune system's healing process and is one of the best ways to rid the body of chemicals and unwelcome visitors. The immune system weakens the hold of viruses and bacterial growth. FIR heat induces an "artificial fever" by heating up the body but without the pains of an illness. Subsequently, the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the "artificial fever". Recent studies also show that colds and flu-like illnesses are reduced dramatically if treated in the early stages with FIR heat.
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System reduce stress?
A. Infrared heat therapy loosens muscles and relaxes the body prior to a massage. Many massage therapists use infrared heat to provide more thorough and effective massages.
Q. How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System benefit my skin?
A. Infrared heat improves circulation, expels dirt & chemicals and removes dead cells on the surface of the skin. All of these benefits lead to a more soft and firm complexion.
