If you have ever been in a sauna or hot tub you understand that heat feels great on the body. But did you know some back heating pads will actually help heal your pain? The important thing to remember is that these heating pads will not cure your back pain but they will provide you with temporary relief. And if you deal with back pain, relief of any kind is welcomed.
Now, chances are you already own a traditional heating pad; probably one that was purchased from your pharmacy, grocery or big box store and was more or less between $10-$30. While these heating pads feel good on your skin, they are really doing nothing more than heating your skin. They may bring some relief, but as soon as you turn off the heating pad, the relief is gone as well. In this article, we want to educate you and talk about another form of heat, Far infrared heat, that can actually penetrate deep into your muscles and even your bones healing you from the inside out!
So what exactly is Far infrared heat you ask? Infrared light is a part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum. It can’t be seen but it can be felt as heat. A major characteristic of Far infrared light waves is that it easily penetrates human tissue. Far infrared heat (FIR light waves) warms you from the inside out and it will never cause your skin to burn and is 100% safe for you, your family and all living things.
The Journal of American Medical Association even confirms that Far infrared energy provides a list of healthy benefits. Among them are:
- Reduction in pain
- Reduction in Arthritic pain
- Increases blood circulation
- Aids in the removal of toxins in the body
- Improves range of motion
- Promotes relaxation
You can get the healing benefits of Far infrared heat in the comfort of your own home. Far infrared back heating pads deliver far infrared heat via jade stones which are interwoven on top of the heating pad. These stones have been revered by the Chinese since ancient times and are believed to improve the lungs, heart, kidneys, and blood detoxification.
When the jade stones are heated, it transports the healing Far infrared heat deep into your muscle tissues which warm, cleanse and relieve your pain. Unlike traditional back heating pads which only penetrate 2-3mm deep, far infrared heat can penetrate 2-3 inches deep into muscles and ligaments.
So whether you are suffering from back pain and need relief or want to increase blood circulation and relaxation, a far infrared heating pad can do it all.
