Healing with Light: the Far Infrared Sauna

Reiki, Huna Kane, Healing Touch, the laying of hands, and crystal healing all have one thing in common.  Each healing modality uses light to do the healing.  In truth, light is the only thing that actually does the healing.  What a simple principle!  Find a way for light to enter an area of disease or injury, and the healing begins.  Find a way to get enough light to the area, and complete healing will happen.

From the body of knowledge about how divine light and crystals work on Earth and in the heavens found in my books, The Crystal TextbookThe Story of Light, Path to Enlightenment, and The Story of Light, Through Heaven’s Gate, the red light frequency range is a highly penetrating band of frequencies.  If you are going to use light to enter a diseased or injured area, the red frequency range is the most certain of all frequencies to get through.  To appreciate the qualities of red light, consider that the red frequencies of the crystal, Ruby, are harnessed to create laser beam cutting tools.

Far Infrared Light Band

The far infrared spectrum of frequencies does not lend itself to being a laser cutting tool, but its range of frequencies, in the quantity emitted by the elements of the far infrared sauna makes a notable contribution to the healing process.  Because there are multiple elements in each sauna, each putting out a breadth of rays within the sauna, light will find its way into significant portions of the body, to a depth of up to 1.5”.  Healing becomes generalized throughout.

Will a far infrared sauna make a difference to your healing process?  Far infrared saunas have several endorsements from medical doctors. My own GP believes in the process enough to have sent me to take laser light therapy, which involved both red and far infrared bands of light.  After experiencing how effective the process was in knocking-out the pain and making it easier to walk, I started looking around for a treatment regime that I could do at home.  I did the research on the pros and cons of infrared saunas.  I went with the Far North Sauna people in Edmonton, Alberta primarily because the heating elements that emit the infrared rays are ceramic, as opposed to carbon or aluminum.  Beyond that, the price was reasonable, the unit was easy to assemble, it fit easily into the basement, used normal electric plugins, and there was a stereo built-in. Unfortunately, Far North Saunas have since gone out-of-business.

My wife and I understand light and healing, and understand the value of using a far infrared light sauna on a regular basis.  With regular use, I began to notice a lessening of the pain in my body’s injuries, especially in my knees.

The following excerpt comes from the Far North Sauna (Edmonton, Alberta) website prior to their demise.

Quote: “Far infrared light is starting to make its effects known in the sports community, where injuries are more common than in the general public, and where sports teams are leading the way with innovations that fit a more mainstream medical model. The bottom line is that it works.

Injuries and Far Infrared Sauna Therapy (FIRT)

FIRT has gained immense notoriety with weekend warriors and professional athletes alike. FIRT has the unique ability to speed up and improve the healing process of many injuries including joint and muscle pain, back pain, scarring, colds and flues, as well as a host of other conditions. FIRT penetrates the skin up to two inches and causes increased blood flow and vasodilation. In the healing process and specifically during the sub-acute stage where we see new growth of connective tissue and capillaries that help repair damaged structures far infrared sauna therapy works very well. Scar tissue also continues to grow during this time and is minimized by using FIRT. FIRT helps promote rebuilding of injured tissue by having a positive effect on the fibroblasts (connective tissue cells necessary for the repair of injury). Furthermore, it increases growth of cells, DNA syntheses, and protein synthesis all necessary during tissue repair and regeneration. FIRT also expands capillaries, which stimulate increased blood flow, regeneration, circulation, and oxygenation. The chronic stage follows in which scar tissue is remodelled by the stresses placed on it. During this stage, the deep heat of far infrared sauna therapy helps blood vessels dilate, thus bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen rich blood to oxygen depleted muscles, so they recover faster. All-in-all, FIRT is an excellent addition to any muscle and joint rehabilitation program. FIRT has been great in helping to reduce downtime caused by colds and flues as-well due to its effect on the immune system.

Immune Systems and Far Infrared Sauna Therapy

FIRT works in many ways to help strengthen a weakened immune system. Firstly, the gentle warmth created from the heat of the far infrared saunas raises the internal body temperature which in turn mimics a type of artificial fever. This stimulates the body’s immune system to turn on and get busy producing more of the different body defence cells that can be used to combat any foreign invaders. Secondly, FIRT stimulates full detoxification of the body. Detoxification can be defined as “the process of reducing the build-up of various poisonous substances in the body”. Because the far infrared frequency wavelength penetrates the entire surface of the body up to two inches, a thorough cleansing can take place. The far infrared heat opens the pores to their base, which helps mobilize the toxins, which are then flushed out when you sweat. Every system in our body performs better when it functions in a detoxified state including the digestive system, endocrine system, cardiovascular system, lymphatic system and most importantly the Immune System. The United States Centre for Disease Control estimates that over 80% of all illnesses have environmental and lifestyle causes. Remember to drink lots of water throughout the day, especially before and after your far infrared sauna session to help with the detox flushing. A third, and also very important aspect of immune system health that far infrared sauna therapy works with, is the creation of relaxation and stress relief. As we all know, stress either acute or chronic plays a major role in diminishing our immune system function as it causes chemical and hormonal imbalances to occur. The soothing heat generated from the far infrared sauna therapy creates total relaxation and decreased stress levels. Research has shown that continuous far infrared sauna therapy promotes a rebalancing of the body’s hormones through its effect on the autonomic nervous system.”  Endquote.

Getting a far infrared sauna did not end with the company mentioned above. They are still quite available and probably in your local area. Further, information on the healing benefits of the far infrared light spectrum is also quite available. A simple internet search should get you there.
