Our Marble Falls studio features FAR infrared heat, which provides a therapeutic, deep penetrating, detoxifying form of heat which expels toxins, heavy metals and pollutants from the body, providing significant benefits. How Does Infrared Heat Work? Infrared heaters convert light directly to heat, warming nearby objects without raising the air temperature. This allows a student in an infrared class to absorb heat while the surrounding air does not. This type of heat is most like natural sunlight. In fact, 80% of the light that makes it to Earth is infrared, making it a form of light that is easily processed by our bodies. Since the air itself does not get hot with infrared heat, it is suitable and tolerable for students especially those with respiratory issues who find it uncomfortable or even risky to go in a heated yoga class. Additionally, infrared heat does not recirculate air thereby reducing the circulation of dirty air and bacteria.
Infrared heat differs greatly from, say, a heater that heats the air in a room, because it actually is absorbed by the skin and has a greater effect on increased circulation, muscle flexibility and detoxification. As your body absorbs infrared waves, molecules begin to vibrate, causing them to start to expel the toxins, fat and impurities from your cells into your blood stream. These will then be released from your body in the form of sweat. The result is an incredible cleansing effect at a cellular level. Your muscles and internal organs will be gently warmed. This form of heat is perfectly safe. Hospitals use infrared heat to keep premature babies warm. As you walk into our Studio you will feel a gentle heat that will increase as students move through class. Also, our Studio is virtually silent as our heating system makes absolutely no noise. This allows the students to concentrate on the teacher’s instructions and their practice. FAR infrared heat promotes a stronger immune system, better cardiovascular health, and speeds up the healing process in soft tissue injuries such as tears, pulls, and sprains. As a beauty treatment, the penetrating heat of FAR infrared heat therapy works wonders by reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, fine lines, and wrinkles. In addition to helping heal scars, wounds, and cuts, it also smooth’s skin’s texture, lessens coarseness, and reduces pore size. FAR infrared heat therapy is a natural way to aid aches and pains from arthritis, Fibromyalgia and other health-related disorders. Providing relief to people suffering from chronic injury, illness or fatigue, far infrared heat is often the first step in helping them get their life back.
