Infrared light

Infrared light penetrates deep into the tissue and creates resonance with all the body's cells. Tissue that is diseased or out of balance absorbs more of the light and receives an energy boost.

Health effects

The infrared light penetrates deep into the tissue and creates resonance with all the body's cells. Tissue that is diseased or out of balance absorbs more of the light and receives an energy boost.

The increase in energy leads to improved blood and lymph circulation, increased oxygenation of the blood and kicks off the body's self-healing processes. It has a direct effect on muscles, joints, capillaries and nerve endings.

Long-wave infrared light has also been shown to support weight reduction, pain relief, improved circulation and skin revitalization among many other things.

Infrared light is for

  • Healthy people who want to prevent and improve their already good health
  • Rehabilitating people with injuries or pain who want to speed up healing
  • Athletes who want to maximize performance and avoid injury
  • Disabled people who find it difficult to get circulation, heart rate and cardio training
  • Antiaging
The first thing you usually experience during a treatment with Resonan's infrared light is calmness, harmony and stress relief. Many people fall asleep after just a few minutes. The soft enveloping warmth makes the whole body relax.

Tense, stiff muscles and joints are softened and blood circulation starts. Body and mind get the break for recovery that is easily neglected in today's high pace.

With infrared light therapy you just lie down and relax, no need to do anything. A nice quiet moment for you and all your senses.

Afterwards, you are usually more alert because your heart rate and blood circulation have increased. Mobility has increased, any pain has reduced or disappeared. The body's now more relaxed attitude also means that life's energy has the opportunity to flow.
In Infrared heat treatments, you can sweat properly, significantly more than in a traditional sauna. You sweat from the depth of your cells. This deep sweating contributes to one of the most effective Detox treatments available today (purification of the body). Observations have shown that in many cases the sweat contains both chemicals and heavy metals as well as blood fats.

The effect is often that you feel your energy return and minor ailments disappear.
You can burn up to 900 calories in just one 30-minute session in equipment with efficient and high-quality infrared light. Below is how many calories a person weighing 75 kg normally burns through 30 minutes of exercise.


Rowing (maximum effort): 600
Swimming (crawl): 300
Jogging: 300
Tennis (fast pace): 265
Chopping wood: 265
Cykling (16 km/h) : 225
Golf (without a cart) : 150
Walking (6 km/h) : 150
Bowling : 120
Squash: 510

A treatment with an infrared sauna can thus play a key role in both weight control and cardiovascular health. This can be very valuable for those who do not exercise and those who cannot exercise but still want an effective weight control and fitness maintenance program that the benefits of regular exercise provide.
Infrared light as a healing method is now becoming a cutting edge in the treatment of soft tissue injuries in some parts of the world. Thanks to, among other things, faster healing through better healing conditions, i.e. faster healing processes.
Pain can be alleviated by reduction of primary or secondary muscle spasm. Pain is also sometimes linked to sciatica through tension or spasm, which can be reduced by heat created by the lymphatic system. This then breaks the feedback loop in which the sciatica leads to further cramps and then more pain.

Heat has been shown to reduce the feeling of pain through direct action on both free nerve endings in tissues and on peripheral nerves. In a dental study, repeated application of heat ultimately led to the obliteration of the entire nerve response responsible for the pain coming from the pulp of a tooth.

Heat can lead to both increased endorphin production - which reduces pain, and create pain relief at the end of the spinal cord, the so-called "spinal gate", by Melzack and Wall.

New clinical studies on pain provide evidence for a hitherto unknown class of pain – Heat Responsive Pain (HRP) – which includes several common pain conditions that can be treated with heat therapy. Researchers studying HRP have noted remarkable therapeutic benefits of using continuous low-level heat therapy in the treatment of lower back, upper body, and menstrual pain, all of which fall under the new VPS classification. A treatment with professional infrared equipment can thus play a key role in both weight control and cardiovascular health. This can be very valuable for those who do not exercise and those who cannot exercise but still want an effective weight control and fitness maintenance program that the benefits of regular exercise provide.
Thanks to deep penetration, over 4 cm into the body, of infrared rays given by infrared equipment, a heating effect occurs deep inside the muscle tissues as well as in our organs. The body reacts to this deep warming effect via the hypothalamus induced increase in both heart volume and heart rate. This favorable cardiac stress provides a sought-after cardiovascular training and conditioning effect. Medical researchers confirm that using heat penetration provides cardiovascular training as the body works to cool itself and this results in a massive increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolism. In confirmation of the validity of this form of cardiovascular training, NASA conducted extensive research in the early 1980s that led to the conclusion that infrared stimulation of cardiovascular function should be the ideal way to maintain cardiovascular fitness in American astronauts during long space flights. Blood circulation has been reported to increase when experiencing hypothermia (abnormally low body temperature), from the normal 5 – 7 liters per minute to as much as 13 liters per minute.

The infrared heating system enables people in wheelchairs, or those otherwise unable to move, or those who cannot follow an exercise or cardio training program, to achieve a cardiovascular training effect. This also allows for greater variety in an ongoing exercise program. “Many of us who run do it to train our cardiovascular system, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of infrared penetration can put a similar strain on our cardiovascular system and regular use can be just as effective, in terms of cardiovascular exercise and calorie burning, as regular exercise.” - Journal of the American Medical Association 8/7/81.
The heat from the infrared light increases circulation in the part of the body being treated. The heat also increases blood circulation in the finer vessels, with the effect of reducing stiffness and improving healing processes

The bloodstream has several important functions in the body, including to:
• supply the body's cells with important nutrition
• carry away waste that is formed during metabolism
• transport oxygen from the lungs to the tissues, and carbon dioxide in the other direction
• spread different hormones and signaling substances that control different functions in the body
Infrared heat treatments mean a lot to the skin, among other things it reduces hives. Dry and hard skin becomes soft, smooth and supple. Clogged pores are opened and acne is reduced. Pale skin color is restored. Scars and pain from burns are reduced. Cuts heal faster. Eczema and psoriasis conditions have also been observed to improve with infrared heat treatment.

Keloids, tumorous growths of scar tissue, commonly following burns, tend to form more slowly with infrared heat treatments and can be softened by the use of infrared systems if they have formed. Sunburn according to the 9th edition of Clayton's Electrotherapy, "infrared therapy is the only remedy for excessive ultraviolet radiation.".
Anti Age means a lot, from a healthy cardiovascular system and good oxygenation of the blood among much more. However, what we often think of in these terms is the visible part of the aging process such as the skin for example.

​​Improved skin texture​​
Great for increasing blood circulation in the skin, which is necessary for a beautiful shimmering skin.

Makes the skin firmer and improves its color and elasticity.

Gives a feeling of healthy freshness as dry dead skin cells are removed and pores are opened up and deeply cleansed.

Skin becomes amazingly soft and smooth.

Open wounds heal faster with less scarring.​​

Reduces cellulite
Cellulite, which is a jelly-like substance consisting of fat, water and waste products, collects in pockets under the skin.

The deep heat penetration of the infrared light, the profuse sweating and the removal of toxins means that cellulite is reduced and greatly speeds up other anti-cellulite treatments.

The heat improves circulation in overstretched and sore muscles, which contributes to an increased prerequisite for normalized muscle function. The infrared light also has a positive effect on the muscle fibers.​​

Muscle cramps have long been observed to decrease through the use of heat. Underlying causes of the complaints may be skeletal-joint or neuro-pathological problems.

​​A 20% reduction in stiffness has been observed at 45°C compared to 33°C in rheumatic finger joints and this corresponded perfectly to both subjective and objective observation of stiffness. Any stiff joints and thickened connective tissues should respond similarly.

INCREASES THE ELASTICITY OF CONNECTIVE TISSUES Tissues heated to 45°C and then stretched show a non-elastic permanent elongation of approximately 0.5 – 0.9% that persists when the stretch is removed away. This does not occur in the same tissues when these are stretched at normal tissue temperatures. Thus, 20 rounds of stretching can create 10 – 18% elongation in tissues that are heated and stretched.

This effect can be particularly valuable when working with ligaments, joint capsules, tendons, connective tissue membranes and joints that have become scarred, thickened or contracted.

Such stretching at 45°C caused much less weakening in stretched tissues at a given elongation than similar elongation created at normal tissue temperatures.

The cited experiments clearly show that low-impact stretching can produce a significant lasting lengthening when heat is applied in conjunction with stretching or targeted exercises, which is also safer than stretching tissues at normal tissue temperatures.

This safer stretching effect is essential for properly managed exercise in athletes to reduce their injury time.

Tissue injuries - daily sessions were used until best healing results were achieved; then infrared heat was used to address permanent damage. The pain control effect on the chronic lesions lasted three days before further treatment was necessary.

Infrared light

Infrared light is a natural phenomenon and is the part of the sun's invisible spectrum that gives us humans, animals and nature warmth here on our earth and is thus completely life-determining for our survival. A characteristic of the infrared light is that it penetrates deep into our organism and heats the body from the inside instead of the air first being heated, which in turn heats the body.

A traditional sauna is health-promoting because you sweat, but you only sweat superficially and do not get the deep detoxification that infrared therapy provides. In infrared equipment, the heat is soothing and softening, it is dry and it is pleasant to breathe, and often you also have your head outside - which is positive.

You can expose yourself to infrared light for hours without burning or damaging your skin. Long-wave infrared light has many positive health effects and is 100 % safe for all living things. The Radiation Safety Authority has no recommendations on exposure times or wavelengths.

Long-wave infrared light is used for premature babies, children who were born too early and cannot maintain their own body heat. Common standard electricity works and no installation is required for our treatment equipment.
