The infrared lamp light works by prompting the release of nitric oxide, which enhances blood flow in the body. This brings oxygen and nutrients to sore or injured muscles, resulting in pain reduction and faster healing time. Infrared lamps treat acute migraine headaches and brings relief within 30 minutes. Joint pain caused by inflammation is diminished significantly through regular treatments. Emissions of the infrared low wave lengths help jump-start the process of tissue recovery and stimulate the production of collagen. Many studies also show that the use of infrared light waves aids in weight loss through improved digestion.
