'Fibres impregnated with FIR emitting ceramic nanoparticles and woven into fabrics, are being used as garments and wraps to generate FIR radiation, and attain health benefits from its effects.' (

Far Infrared radiation is an invisible form of electromagnetic energy which enables multiple forms of energy to be transferred into subcutaneous tissue. Subcutaneous tissue is the deepest layer of your skin. The subcutaneous layer acts as a layer of insulation to protect your internal organs and muscles from shock and changes in temperature.

FIR resonates with water molecules and provides our bodies the ability to improve blood circulation, activate the bodies metabolism and eliminate toxic heavy metals out of our bodies.

Far Infrared Rays (FIR) are the safest and most beneficial electromagnetic wave source available, similar to those produced by panels used to keep newborn babies warm in hospitals.

During the FIR process, anions are created when the air molecules are broken down. These anions are then called negative ions. These naturally produced anions are the same molecules found in high concentrations in beautiful, natural places like forests, beaches, and close to waterfalls. These anions or negative ions have been found to be good for our health.
