Are Far Infrared Therapy products safe?

Far Infrared Therapy uses the natural thermal properties of sunlight. Synergy’s FIR-Insidetm products are safe, effective and non-toxic.

Who should use FIR Therapy?

Far Infrared Therapy may be safely used by anyone suffering from pain, injury or muscle stiffness. Athletes often wear compressive FIR-Inside body bands to support injured joints during recovery and to prevent re-injury. Synergy’s FIR-Inside Health and Wellness products offer individuals with Diabetes and common circulatory problems such as Arthritis and Raynauds Syndrome immediate relief and comfort.

Will FIR burn my skin?

No. Far Infrared waves penetrate the body’s tissues to a depth of over one and one half inches. This energy output is tuned to correspond very closely to the body’s own radiant energy. Far Infrared Rays (FIR) have wave lengths of 4-14 Microns. This wave length is absorbed by the body as the light energy is transmitted into the deeper tissues and muscle, thus eliminating the possibility of burns. Only a wavelength that is less than 3 microns (e.g. near infrared rays, UV, etc.), can cause burning as the rays stop at the skin’s surface and cannot be absorbed.

How deep will FIR penetrate into the body?

Unlike visible light, infrared rays can deeply penetrate the skin and underlying tissues up to 1.5 to 2.8 inches (approx. 3.75 – 7 cm).

Does the medical community support FIR Technology?

In Japan, FIR is a multi-billion dollar industry with scientific research into FIR technology making significant advances in the field of healing (refer to research by Japanese Medical Doctor and Researcher, Sasaki Kyuo). In North America, the medical community has been using FIR products for many years. Infrared heaters are even used to heat premature babies in hospital incubators. Awareness of FIR is growing and FIR therapy products are quickly gaining in popularity with end consumers.

How will I know if FIR is working for me?

Some people will notice positive improvement, such as less pain and swelling, more flexibility and more energy within a few hours or days of wearing a FIR product. For others, the changes may be more subtle and take longer.

Can I use FIR every day?
