What are the three types of infrared heat?

Infrared heat can be classified into three categories, or wavelengths. Even though our sun’s output is a mixture of all three of these wavelengths, the human body specifically emits far infrared radiation.

Near infrared light penetrates deep into the skin and can be beneficial for skin issues. This is the type of infrared heat that you experience in a sauna.

Mid-infrared light penetrates a little deeper to promote better circulation.

Far infrared heats the body directly, rather than the air surrounding it, as opposed to conventional heat. It has the ability to penetrate deeply into the body (up to 1.5″), allowing it to give the greatest number of benefits.

It is far infrared heat that is used in the FIT Bodywrap, which allows it to penetrate the body more deeply, boosting circulation and generating sweat, while also giving wellness advantages such as pain treatment, weight loss, cellulite reduction, skin rejuvenation, relaxation, and many other benefits.
