Far Infrared Therapy

Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (FIRST)

Far Infrared Rays, first discovered by Sir William Herschel in 1800, are waves of energy invisible to the eye. They are present in sunlight but do not reach us in quantity as they are filtered out by the atmosphere.

However, cells in the body actually make Far Infrared and these waves of energy are being used in many fields of treatment and healing.

Far Infrared increases circulation by expanding the capillaries, increases metabolic activity in cells – specifically detoxification and may have an effect on abnormal cells as well as affecting many conditions.

Far Infrared equipment creates a mild sweating but unlike a regular sauna penetrates the body to about 4 cm providing a gentle warm glow.

Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (FIRST)

Dr Sharma and FHS coined the anachronism FIRST and have employed this technique in therapy programs for several years. The benefits are many and effects can be very swift even in long standing/chronic conditions.

The benefit of FIRST can be seen in;

  • Women’s issues – PMS, Menopausal
  • Skin wrinkles and general conditioning
  • Anti-inflammatory therapy in joint conditions such as arthritis, in injury etc
  • Problems associated with excessive free radicals
  • Arterial, circulation and heart health
  • As an adjunct in cancer therapy
  • Chronic Fatigue and Tired All The Time (TATT) syndromes
  • Breathing complaints
  • Pain syndromes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Blood pressure
  • Obesity

FHS guides individuals towards safer more effective equipment through an association with experts in the field and can provide in-clinic sessions or oversee home treatment with equipment that can be purchased or hired for periods of therapy.
