Far Infrared Mats

Also referred to simply as infrared mat, far infrared mats are a relatively new therapeutic product and are likely less well known than the traditional far infrared sauna method of the therapy.

To qualify as infrared heat a mat needs to have one property in particular, and this is specifically the ability to deliver heat in the form of radiated heat.

This is the kind of heat we can feel from the sun, radiated, and not because we’re close enough to feel the actual heat generated.

An infrared mat generates this kind of heat by using an electrical current to heat up a substance which will then radiate the heat. Typically the substance used is one which retains heat well, most commonly used are crystals and sometimes a heavier ceramic.

This kind of radiated heat from an infrared mat will penetrate the skin more deeply just like how we can feel a deep warmth from the sun. It’s this ability of deep penetrating heat which gives the therapeutic abilities of an infrared mat. The heat opens up our blood vessels and relaxes our muscles allowing blood to bring needed nutrients to cells and giving our muscles relaxing time to recuperate.

On our website we aim to review a number of different infrared mats to compare and contrast them for you, and one thing we should note is that not all infrared mats are created the same. Some cheap versions will not offer and EMF (electromagnetic field) shielding. EMF’s are generated from our everyday electronics and an infrared mat is no exception. Ideally we should try to limit our exposure to these high frequency randomized EMF’s as much as we can.

Still some other infrared mats will combine multiple therapies into a single product while others offer only infrared heat. Most notably would be PEMF, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy which is quickly becoming more well known. 

Read on below to find out why you may wish to include PEMF therapy in your infrared mat.

 

PEMF Therapy with Infrared Mats

If you have not yet heard of PEMF therapy we recommend finding out more before investing in a therapy mat!

Combining far infrared with PEMF therapy can create more effective results working in synergy together.

There are many studies on the effects of PEMF therapy on the PubMed website, the conclusion of one such example study:

CONCLUSIONAdding pulsed electromagnetic field to Conventional physical therapy Protocol yields superior clinical improvement in pain, functional disability, and lumbar ROM in patients with non-specific low back pain than Conventional physical therapy alone.”
