Far Infrared Ray Heat Therapy – Does it work?

The simple answer is yes.  The long answer is still yes, but the FIR heat therapy wrap(s) should be used on a regular basis.

A little background on Far Infrared Ray (FIR):  it is essentially waves of energy that cannot be seen by the naked eye but can penetrate deeply into the body.  Once the rays penetrate the skin, they naturally raise the body’s temperature to about 107.6ºF which benefits the following:

  • Expands your capillaries which increases blood flow, regeneration, circulation and oxygenation
  • Boosts metabolism and promotes detox – eliminates fats, toxins, etc., from the blood
  • Stimulates enzyme activity
  • Improves the rebuilding of injured tissue
  • Promotes the relief of nerves
  • Increases white blood cell to support your immune system

As a new employee at Venture Heat, I was unaware of what Far Infrared Rays were or how they could benefit me, but I would soon find out.FIR Heat Therapy Knee Wrap

I have had on-and-off again knee issues from high school through adulthood, mainly due to sports and wear-and-tear over the years.  Growing up, hockey and lacrosse overlapped so it  was year-round training, practicing, and playing.  That has tapered off in adulthood, but that doesn’t mean the knee discomfort did.  Although I still play hockey and work out on a regular basis, my knee limited me to certain exercises – until I was given the Knee Heat Therapy Wrap as a welcome gift from Venture Heat.  Let’s just say I wish I had this FIR heat wrap when I was younger!  I started using the heated knee wrap after every hockey game and whenever I felt discomfort – so about 3-4 times a week for 30 minutes.  After a month of consistently using it, the discomfort started to go away and is now almost unnoticeable.  We are not claiming this is a miracle worker, but FIR heat therapy can improve your quality of life – it has for me!

Which Heat Therapy Products are Right For Me?
Infrared Ray Heat Therapy is commonly used for pain management when it comes to chronic aches and pains.

The advantages for Far Infrared Ray (FIR) Heat Therapy are many such as having the ability to penetrate up to 3 inches below the skin causing capillaries to dilate which improves blood flow to the area.  This increase in blood flow helps your body to resupply the vital nutrients and oxygen it needs to recuperate.  Far Infrared Rays are also able to aid the body in getting rid of harmful toxins and metabolic wastes.

Because of all the positive attributes associated with FIR heat therapy, it is certainly a top contender for being the best choice in heat therapy.  Physical therapists and chiropractors choose FIR lamps to treat patients suffering from chronic pains.  The same technology they are using is now available for home and portable use with wraps designed specifically for the ailing area.

VentureHeat has two different lines of FIR heat therapy wraps.  Depending on your lifestyle and preferences in using heat therapy wraps, you have the option of either the At-Home Plug-in series or the Rechargeable Battery wraps.  Both systems use FIR heat therapy and are able to heat to the same temperature levels through the included temperature controllers.

With the At-Home Plug-in line of heat therapy wraps, you are able to plug the wrap into the wall using the 6 foot cord and receive soothing heat for as long as you need. After a 30 minute session, a built-in timer will automatically shut the wrap off as many physical therapists and chiropractors recommend half hour increments of heat therapy treatment.  If you would like to extend the heat beyond the 30 minutes, simply turn the wrap back on using the hand held controller for another session.

The controller also allows you to adjust the heat to four different settings depending on your own personal preference.  Simply click through the levels shown by LED indicator lights displayed on the controller to dial in the heat for greatest comfort.

The benefit of using an At-Home Plug-in heat therapy wrap is that you will never have to worry about charging batteries or running out of power.  As long as you are near an outlet, you can experience heated pain relief whenever you feel the need.  These wraps are great if you primarily use heat therapy when watching T.V., reading a book, or sitting at the computer. They are perfect for home and office use when you are near an outlet.

Rechargeable Battery wraps, on the other hand, give you the freedom to take FIR heat therapy wherever you go.  Powered by long-lasting lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, you will have heat for 2 – 5 hours depending on the settings you choose.  

The built-in temperature controller lets you adjust the heat to 4 separate levels with just the click of a button. To recharge the battery, simply plug the charger into the wall for 4 to 6 hours and you will be ready for another round of heated comfort.

Like the At-Home Plug-in wraps, the Rechargeable Battery wraps also have an automatic shut-off feature that kicks in after 30 minutes of continuous use.  If extended time is desired, just power back on the power pack for another session.  The Rechargeable Battery wraps are a great choice if you would prefer to use your heat therapy wraps while in the car, out and about, or working around the house.  Having the freedom to move freely and not being tethered to a wall outlet make the Rechargeable Battery wraps a great choice for those with an active lifestyle and enjoy the portability factor that these wraps allow for.

Both the At-Home Plug-in wraps and the Rechargeable Battery wraps are constructed with a flexible neoprene rubber that stretches and moves with the body. The Velcro straps let you adjust the wrap to fit your body snugly, enabling a better fit and performance.  The wraps are lined with fleece to give you greater comfort on the surface of your skin.

Because the wraps are tailored to fit specific areas on your body, you will never have to bother with wraps sliding out of place or worry about trying to balance them on your body.  VentureHeat’s wraps use targeted heating elements to maximize their effectiveness and to deliver heat exactly where you need it.

Another great feature about these wraps is that they can be used on both sides of the body.  For instance, VentureHeat’s Heat Therapy Shoulder Wrap can be used on both the right and left shoulders.  The same is true for the Knee, Wrist, Elbow, and Ankle Wraps.  Other brands are designed for only side of the body, forcing you to buy multiple wraps if you need relief on both sides.  VentureHeat realizes that your pain may not be contained to only one side and gives you the option to wear the wraps on either side.

If you are looking for relief from your pains, it is time to give VentureHeat a try with either the At-Home Plug-in Wraps or one of the Rechargeable Battery Heat Therapy Wraps. Look to VentureHeat today for a pain-free tomorrow.

Understanding the differences in common heat therapy products

Chronic aches and pains are stubborn and long-lasting.  They deplete your abilities to move and live freely.  The constant pangs are a reminder of your body’s physical limitations that prevent you from leading a comfortable life.

Being trapped by your own body certainly isn’t a fair situation, but what options are available to you?  Perhaps surgery could help to repair some of the damages, yet the risks involved with surgery, along with the high costs, often surpass the benefits.  Prescription medication is another method in relaxing the pains, but the side effects that come along with medication are often disheartening.  A safer, more consistent manner in dealing with pain management is with the use of heat therapy.

Heat therapy has been proven to be the most effective way of soothing muscle spasms and is recommended by medical professionals.  Heat therapy comes in many forms, though some more beneficial than others.

A traditional method of using heated stones placed upon the ailing area lacks the ability for portability, temperature control, or extended use making this an inadequate method for pain relief.

Electric blankets often emit dangerous EMFs, overheat, and do not fit the contour of the body.

Microwaveable products are difficult to control the temperature as they heat up too hot then lose warmth quickly forcing you to return to the microwave frequently.

Chemical activated hot packs that use oxidized heat can not only get costly for long-term use, but are environmentally damaging as they are one time use and lack the ability to control the temperature.

Also, none of these options emit any significant amount of deep penetrating infrared rays which have been shown to be an effective way to strengthen the immune system and improve blood flow.  This eases muscles spasms and rehabilitates movement impairment, relieves the sensation of pain, and promotes tissue repair.

Infrared ray lamps are often found in physical therapists offices because of their positive wellness attributes.

Now, you can take this doctor recommended treatment home, for individual therapy and comfort.  Far infrared ray heat therapy wraps are convenient, affordable, and long-lasting.  With the active heat on demand feature, you are able to control the temperature to your exact needs while the contoured fit is designed specifically for the ailing body part.  Far infrared ray heat therapy wraps use safe and comfortable technology that provides relief from chronic aches and pains.

If you take your comfort seriously then don’t be fooled by other heat therapy products and try infrared ray heat therapy today for a pain free tomorrow.

How is Heat Associated with Pain Treatment?

How is Heat Associated with Pain Treatment?
Heat therapy is the most recommended non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical form of pain relief and rehabilitation by physical therapists and medical professionals alike. Targeting an affected area with heat therapy dilates blood vessels and increases the flow of oxygenated blood to help repair damaged tissues at the cellular level and flush away toxins and lactic acids that cause stiffness and discomfort.Studies have shown that some types of heat are more helpful in soothing muscle pain than others. Heat emitted by carbon fibers, which produce Far Infrared Rays, is more effective than superficial heat produced by heated cloths, hot water bottles, and instant hot packs.
What is Far Infrared Ray and How Does it Effectively Get Rid of Pain?
Far Infrared Rays (FIR) are wavelengths of energy found within the light spectrum but are invisible to the naked eye. Through a process known as “thermal conversion”, these rays allow warmth to penetrate deep into the body.Unlike conventional forms of heat therapy products which heat up only the surface of the skin, Far Infrared Ray heat penetrates up to 3 inches into the muscles and bones, optimizing the therapeutic benefits.The pain alleviation process happens in the cellular level when FIR light energy converts into heat upon contact with the subcutaneous tissues in the body. The heat energy excites the molecules, causing them to have micro-vibrations. This process causes the blood vessels to dilate, which in turn boosts blood flow in the area to resupply vital nutrients and oxygen needed to recuperate. Furthermore, Far Infrared Rays help to get rid of toxins and metabolic wastes in the body through sweating, which is the body’s natural way of cooling itself from the heat that comes with the process.

Far Infrared Ray-induced heat is harmless, comfortable, targeted and deep penetrating. It is an effective way to strengthen immunity and improve blood flow, which eases muscles spasms, rehabilitates movement impairment, alters the sensation of pain, and promotes tissue repair.
