One of the major effects of Far Infrared Heat Therapy is increase in blood circulation and tissue metabolism. This is crucial when pain results from ischemia, spasm or accumulation of the inflammatory chemical mediators, such as prostaglandins. (Ersala, et al., 2001). Improving blood circulation allows muscles to receive oxygenated blood and nutrients needed for recovery of injured tissue. Along with washing out accumulated metabolites and inflammatory mediators this process becomes an important part for faster and smoother recovery.
