Frequently asked questions
What does infrared radiation do with your body ?
The infrared rays penetrate the top layer of skin without heating the skin. They create a deep warm feel which your whole body absorbs. This also increases your circulation so that not only the skin has better circulation, but also the underlying fatty tissues. The fatty acids contained in the fat cells dissolve and disappear along the lymph system out of the body. You will also notice that your skin feels healthier after a cure in an infrared cabin. The infrared rays also increase the heartbeat to create passive fitness training. You can compare this with a warm-up, which is designed to prevent sports injuries. However, people with muscular pain, joint complaints and arthritis can benefit from infrared rays. The heat gives you a salutary feel and the improved circulation in the muscular tissue helps to reduce pain and stiffness in the muscles/joints. Thermae Boetfort and Thermae Grimbergen also have an infrared sauna. We also offer private special therapies with infrared rays.
