Therapeutic infrared heat

At Lively Yoga, we work with qualified infrared glass panels. These may be named the most clean, healthy, sustainable and co2 free heat panels. The infrared panels emit long infrared waves with a high health aspect.

We work with special infrared panels specially designed for Hot Yoga & therapeutic healing.

How does FAR Infrared heat feel?

FAR infrared is a radiant heat that you cannot see with the eye and gives the same feeling as the warmth of the sun. In fact, it is the same form of heat given off by your own body. It is the most basic form of heating the human being knows. Radiant heat does not heat air – which retains little heat and disappears.

Just as the sun warms the earth, infrared waves from heat panels can bring the warmth (and comfort) of the sun inside. infrared heat panels convert electricity into invisible infrared radiation (FIR = Far Infra Red). This invisible infrared radiation heats not the air (= convection heating, like central heating radiators, for example), but the floor, walls and all “objects,” such as people, furniture, plants and animals that are in the room.

The air in the room is heated indirectly because the floor, walls and the “objects” transfer the absorbed heat back to the environment. Just as the heated earth (and all “objects” on it) gives off heat to our atmosphere.

With infrared heat panels, the room is heated evenly and there is hardly any difference in temperature between floor and ceiling.

Far Infrared heat stimulates cellular metabolism which increases the body’s regenerative capacity and it helps restore the proper functioning of the nervous system. Far Infrared energy is very easily absorbed by the human body . The body has its own mechanism for producing FIR that stimulates healing and cellular repair.

When the body is exposed to Far Infrared waves, our healing processes will be stimulated and the body’s own repair responses will be activated. Far Infrared heat detoxifies the body of heavy metals, pesticides and other toxins. Because of today’s high levels of stress and toxicity, the body’s natural ability to heal is often compromised. Some of us have reached such critical stress and/or toxic levels that we no longer have the energy to detoxify or repair our bodies ourselves. Far Infrared radiation will be selectively absorbed by those tissues that need a boost. Our thermal energy will increase, tissues will become more active and the rate of metabolism will increase. It is almost like recharging the body’s battery.

(Read more about heavy metal detoxification under “Infrared and the detoxification of heavy metals in our bodies.”)

The intensity of Far Infrared energy produced by the body fluctuates constantly. When the intensity is high, we feel healthy and are able to overcome ailments. Once infrared energy levels begin to drop, we are more subject to disease and tend to age faster. Far infrared waves help to rid the body of chemicals and contaminants, rejuvenates the body’s cells, tissues and organs activating its self-healing ability.

In saunas, they work mainly with short-wave infrared. Here you can also see that the space is always colored red. The short wave only reaches the skin surface. It warms up the skin and, as a result, starts to perspire a in a short time. This can already have a very nice effect on the body and mind.

Long wave, on the other hand, begins to warm up in the deeper layers of the body. This includes the muscles, deeper tissues and joints. This has the great advantage that the heat offers much relaxation on the muscles, joints and tissues. Complaints, back,- neck,- shoulder,- joint complaints soften and disappear due to the relaxation and heath. It has been researched, proven and discovered that FAR Infred healing has a very high healing ability.

More on the healing power of infrared can be read below

Because the long wave of the FIR infrared panels warms the deeper layers in our body, it provides complete relaxation on the muscles, joints, tissues, connective tissues and tendons. This gives the advantage of warming up the body from the inside out in a short period of time, making it easier to get into yoga poses. By doing so, you give the body the opportunity to release tension on the muscles, stretch and lengthen the muscles and deeper connective tissue. Pain symptoms usually come from too much tension in the body; too much tension means little room for movement of the muscles and tissues. This tension creates the pains in our body.

Some advantages of Far Infrared heat

  • De-stresses the body and mind
  • Anti-inflammatory ( anti-inflammatory and analgesic effect)
  • Stimulates the blood circulation
  • counteracts depression
  • Activates self-healing ability
  • Works relaxingly
  • Detoxt the body and mind
  • Inhibits the aging process
  • Perfect for back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Reduces physical symptoms and discomfort
  • Overall body workout
  • Delivers (elite) athletes, cyclists and runners better performance and faster recovery
  • Quicker recovery from injuries

The infrared panels used at Lively Yoga have an anti-bacterial effect, killing mites and bacteria. There is also an odor-neutralizing effect. This will ensure that hygiene is high during a sweat class.

Far Infrared (FIR) rays form an invisible spectrum of sunlight discovered by a scientist named Sir William Herschel in 1800. His research led to the discovery that there are not only the familiar visible waves such as red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet plus, but also invisible waves such as Gamma, Ultraviolet and infrared.

FIR waves are present in the spectrum between visible light and microwaves. This invisible band of light is felt as heat. About 80% of solar energy consists of FIR and 60% of it is between of 10-20 microns. The human body produces FIR between 8-14 microns. Under the influence of infrared waves, the activity level of our atoms will be increased and heat will be generated.

Albert Szent-Gyorgi, Nobel laureate and the discoverer of vitamin C, believed that all the sun’s energy has a great impact on us. His research showed that light can literally change the body’s fundamental biological functions.

The infrared heat helps to make the mitochondria* more powerful and detoxify heavy metals* in our body. Mitochondria are especially sensitive to heavy metals and toxic substances. An additional benefit of infrared besides detoxification is that infrared light converts the water in your body into EZ water*, which mitochondria need to function optimally.

What are mitochondria?

The mitochondria in your cells are your power plants that produce energy. Mitochondria in a cell look like tiny beans. Every cell in your body contains mitochondria; this can range from 10,000 to as many as 5,000 mitochondria per cell.

What are heavy metals in our bodies?

Unfortunately, we are dealing with many harmful/heavy metals that affect our health system. We ingest these heavy metals through such things as food, microwaves, packaging materials, non-natural cosmetics, air, etc. Heavy metals that we ingest because of this and are therefore harmful to our health are; cadmium, aluminum, mercury, lead, arsenic, nickel.

What is EZ-water?

Prof. Gerald Pollack, professor of biomedical engineering at the University of Washington and editor of the scientific journal Water,discovered that the water in our cells is a very different type of water than the water in nature that we know as H2O. He lists this water in our body exclusion zone or EZ water.

This is a fourth form of water besides liquid, water vapor and solid (ice). We could think of EZ water as water in the form of gel. The water we drink, H2O, is converted in our bodies into this body’s own form of water and absorbed into your cells. If cells do not contain enough EZ water, they dry out and function less well. This EZ water is needed for our mitochondria to function optimally. The mitochondria become more powerful with plenty of EZ water in your body.

  1. Therapeutic Effects of FIR Infrared Heat – Chapter 9 of “Therapeutic Heat and Cold, Fourth Edition,” Editors Justus F. Lehmann, MD Williams and Wilkin – reports that Far Infrared heat therapy does the following;
  • Reduces stiffness in joints.
  • Relieves muscle spasms.
  • Increases blood flow.
  • Leads to pain relief.
  • Affects soft tissue injuries.
  • Increases the elasticity of collagen tissue.
  • Helps resolve inflammatory infiltrated, edema.
  1. FIR Infrared heat therapy general properties include promotion of circulation, reduction and relief of pain, swelling and inflammation, elimination (removal) of waste products such as heavy metals, relaxation and comfort.
  2. German medical researchers concluded that a session of Fir infrared thermal therapy for more than 1 hour can have a significant reduction in blood pressure thanks to sustained peripheral vasodilation. She also noted that blood viscosity had improved.
  3. Infrared for cosmetic use. Fir Infrared is a very popular method of treating acne. They seem to work in that the sebaceous glands shrink and the Fir infrared inhibits inflammation.
  4. Japanese researchers have reported that Fir infrared radiant heat counteracts the negative effects of toxic electromagnetic sources ( such as cell phones, microwave etc).
  5. The Chi energy also known as Qi, is the life force energy present in every living being. When a person is sick, the flow of QI can be interrupted internally and various organs can become imbalanced/organic complaints. If the proper information can be delivered into the body through other channels, or if new information can be generated in the body through exercises by patients, the out-of-function organs will resume their proper function. This is how acupuncture and Fir infrared therapy neutralize various physical conditions and keep the body fit. – “The scientific basis and therapeutic benefits of infrared radiation therapy,” Yamazaki Toshio, Japan.
  6. in Japan, Hideyoshi Toyokawa and others investigated the effects of FIR infrared on wound healing. The results showed that Far infrared heat can significantly improve wound healing. The results can be read in the online journal ‘ Experimental Biology and medicin’
