Types of Infrared Light and How They Benefit You

Are you familiar with the different types of infrared light and how beneficial they can be to our health and well-being?

Infrared light therapy is a non-invasive therapeutic tool that continues to grow in popularity, with more and more people discovering its healing powers. With a wide range of health benefits and applications, infrared light therapy can play a key role in both holistic and targeted treatment plans.


What is infrared light therapy?

Infrared light is a form of radiant energy that’s invisible to our human eyes but that we can feel through its heat. Naturally radiated by the sun, infrared light can penetrate our skin’s surface, offering a natural form of therapeutic warmth that triggers powerful physiological responses. In infrared light therapy, this light is harnessed and strategically utilised for its healing benefits. 


Types of infrared light

There are three different forms of infrared light, including:

  • Near infrared light (NIR): NIR promotes the regeneration of cells, playing a vital role in skin renewal, wound healing, and supporting both muscle recovery and metabolic function.
  • Mid infrared light (MIR): MIR works to warm the body’s soft tissues, resulting in relaxed muscles and improved circulation. By increasing natural blood flow, oxygen delivery is accelerated, providing support for the body’s natural healing process.
  • Far infrared light (FIR): FIR is notable for its detoxification and relaxation benefits, serving to stimulate sweat glands and expel toxins. This can also help to relax the muscles and joints. 

At ReGen Wellness, we offer infrared light therapy in our infrared saunas, which use the only true full-spectrum 3-in-1 infrared heating system in Australia. This offers our clients the benefits of all three forms of infrared light: near, mid, and far.

Infrared light therapy can help in the areas of:

  • Overall wellness and healing: by enhancing immune function and promoting faster healing, infrared light therapy can offer a non-invasive form of wellness support and injury recovery.
  • Pain relief: different forms of infrared light therapy can help to alleviate pain, providing relief for both chronic pain and acute muscle pain.
  • Anti-ageing support: promoting healthy, elastic skin, reducing wrinkles, and supporting an overall sense of vitality, infrared light therapy can be a preferred form of non-invasive treatment for anti-ageing support.
