|What’s the recommended micron far infrared wave length?
In order for you to receive any benefit from far infrared, it must be within a specific range of FIR wavelengths. I can’t help but chuckle every time I here this question, because it doesn’t really matter what anyone recommends. Your body’s cells will only absorb 6-14 micron wavelengths of far infrared rays, the rest will pass through harmlessly. Looks like mother nature is the only one with authority on this one.
|How deep will the Far Infrared Rays penetrate?
The answers I’ve heard to this particular question over the years appear to be all over the map! Everything from a few centimeters to 4.5 inches.
