Benefits of Ganbanyoku
Far infrared | Negative ions
Regular therapy treatment has been shown to produce an anti-aging effect on body cells. We recommend attending regular weekly sessions to gain maximum benefit.
Reduced Cholesterol Levels
Spending time in our heat therapy rooms has the similar effect as doing regular moderate-intensity exercise and can also contribute to physiological body adaptations. Far Infrared Rays (FIR) stimulate the sympathetic nervous system and trigger the release of Nitric Oxide (NO) from the endothelial lining of the blood vessels which preserve blood-vessel elasticity and enhances blood circulation. A study by the Institute of Biomedicine at the University of Cracow have concluded that regular heat therapy can significantly lower blood cholesterol levels. It was also observed that cholesterol levels gradually returned to unhealthy levels in the absence of exercise after participants ceased their regular heat therapy.
Improved Blood Circulation
FIR stimulates the release of NO that aids in preserving blood vessel elasticity and enhances blood circulation.
Nitric Oxide Regulation
FIR waves are able to trigger the release of Nitric Oxide (NO) from the endothelial lining of the blood vessels. NO helps preserve blood-vessel elasticity and enhances blood circulation.
Far Infrared heat therapy also helps to clean the liver and kidneys by expanding the capillaries to increase blood flow in the body. It also increases oxygenation and regeneration of the blood that provides deep detoxification of hidden toxins in the blood and tissue which are dissolved or immobilized. The therapy can significantly improve blood vessel functioning in high-cholesterol, diabetes and smoking patients.
The rejuvenating effects of Far Infrared have been shown to help heal scar tissue such as burn scars, acne scars and other forms of dermatological scarring. It also promotes healing, reducing muscle soreness, muscle spasms and relief for rheumatoid arthritis.
An hour of this therapy burns 500Kcal, showing excellent results in breaking down trapped fat, waste, cellulite and other forms of toxic substances.
Research indicates that regular far-infrared therapy session increases micro-circulation, which enables blood to flow more easily throughout the body, thereby improving the exchange of oxygen and nutrients for waste products in the cells. This therapy is perfect for individuals with diminished blood circulation in certain areas of the brain. This is known as hypo perfusion. Extrapolating from research done on FIR and congestive heart failure, and research on FIR sauna therapy and the release of NO indicates that it is likely that increased perfusion in the brain would be expected in any individual who is exposed to FIR waves. FIR waves’ ability to trigger the release of NO may also play a role in enhancing memory, learning, and behaviour modification along with improving neuro-transmission and immune functions.
