What is Far Infrared Light Therapy?

Far Infrared rays (FIR) are invisible and present in sunlight, first identified by the scientist Sir William Herschel in 1800. His investigations revealed not only the familiar visible rays – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet – but also previously unrecognised invisible rays subsequently termed Infrared.

Around 80% of solar energy comprises FIR, with 60% falling within the 10-20 micron range.

These Far Infrared Rays, integral to sunlight, play a crucial role in photosynthesis, the process through which plants generate energy. Without this process, life on Earth would be unsustainable.

At Taymount Clinic, we are excited to introduce this innovative service that harnesses the power of Far Infrared light to promote healing, relaxation, and vitality.

Far Infrared Explained – The 3 Types of Infrared Rays

Wavelengths of light can be measured in millimetres but are usually measured in units called microns just because the measurements involved are so small; for example 0.00076mm.

  • Near Infrared: 0.76 – 1.4 microns
  • Mid Infrared: 1.4 – 3 microns
  • Far Infrared: 3 – 1000 microns

Near Infrared is the shortest wavelength through to Far Infrared which is the longest ranging from 0.003mm – 1mm.

Properties of FIR

  • They cannot be seen with the naked eye
  • They generate heat when absorbed by many substances
  • They penetrate many objects including Human tissue.
  • They exhibit features of light such as travelling in straight lines, but can be deflected & reflected.
