Improve your blood circulation
Infrared heat improves your blood circulation. This way your body stimulates the supply of oxygen and the removal of waste matter.More health benefits
Infrared heats your body. This reduces muscle tension and muscle pain. It also increases your mobility.
Soothes rheumatic aches and pains
Thanks to the deep heat of infrared, your muscles and joints relax. This has a positive effect on rheumatic complaints.
Relaxes muscles and joints
IR-A, the near or short-wave infrared (SWIR), penetrates deep into your body, directly heating the skin and underlying tissue. This stimulates the blood circulation in painful muscles, tendons and joints, so that waste matters as in inflammation are removed more quickly, more oxygen-rich blood is supplied and muscles and joints relax.
Infrared heat is often found to be pain relieving. It can shorten the start-up time for people with osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. Sunshower already has many users who experience the effect of infrared as symptom relieving.
Infrared and UV relieve rheumatic symptoms
Among its users Sunshower has many people with rheumatism who find infrared and UV light relieves their symptoms. More and more research is being conducted into the effect of these forms of light on the activity of various types of rheumatism and the related pain.
Since we know that vitamin D also plays an important role in the proper functioning of our immune system, the combination of vitamin D and the inflammatory forms of rheumatism is also increasingly studied. After all, it has been known for some time that inflammatory diseases are less common closer to the equator.
'A ray of sunshine in our home!’
"I am young at heart, if I may say so myself, and I still feel as fit as a fiddle, but old age also brings with it infirmities. The body becomes more rigid and the bones more brittle. To prevent me from breaking something with a small slip, I make sure I get enough vitamin D. Our Sunshower helps my bones to stay healthy. Our Sunshower, which helps keep my bones strong, is a godsend."Read Martijn's full story
Development and maintenance of muscles
Infrared heat accelerates muscle recovery. However, the UV light from Sunshower also helps your muscles recover. This is what happens: UV light stimulates the production of vitamin D.
Vitamin D then improves the movement of your muscle fibres, which in turn causes the muscle to contract. The results: improved muscle strength, fewer injuries, better sports results and less risk of falling in the elderly.
