Heat therapy in general can be beneficial in providing relief from deep tissue and stiff muscle pains. For this reason, heat therapy is commonly used for rehabilitation purposes. Heat therapy is also used to decrease joint stiffness, relieve muscle spasms, reduce inflammation, and improve blood flow which leads to more nutrients and oxygen reaching the affected area for faster healing times.
As you know, the forms in which heat therapy is available in are many, ranging from electric heating pads, microwaveable packs, hot water bottles, heated cloths, ultrasounds, saunas, chemically activated patches, and Far Infrared Ray (FIR) wraps to name only a few of the multitude of applications that heat therapy encompasses.
Many methods of heat therapy require heat to be placed directly on the skin of the affected area. The problem with this method of therapy is that high temperatures are required to penetrate beneath the skin to relieve the pain below. Because such high heat is needed to reach the ailing area, you must protect yourself against burning your skin.
Other heat therapy products that use electrical current to produce heat often come at the cost of generating high levels of electro magnetic fields (EMFs) which have been shown to be hazardous to the health. Ultrasound waves can also damage soft tissues if used in extended amounts.
Infrared rays are beneficial in aiding the body in the recuperation process, in particularly Far Infrared Rays. FIR is useful in heat therapy as it has the ability to transfer its energy deeper beneath the skin than direct contact methods do.
The Sun itself produces Infrared Rays which our bodies then absorb. Infrared Rays differ from Ultra Violet Rays (UV) which the Sun also produces. Infrared Rays will never burn your skin or increase carcinogenic agents in the body. A great feature of FIR is that the body will continually to absorb the rays and have positive reactions to it.
FIR has now been implemented into heat therapy wraps that are designed to fit a specific area on the body. VentureHeat’s FIR Heat Therapy Wraps combine the positive wellness attributes associated with FIR and eliminate virtually all EMF’s by using safer and lower voltages to power the heat.
Most heat therapy devices in the market today use a high-voltage energy source between 100-120 Volts, which can be both dangerous and expensive. VentureHeat’s products are guaranteed safe because they use a low 12-Volt DC Voltage for the Plugin Series and a 7.4 Lithium Ion Battery for the Rechargeable series.
