Some studies show the FIR crystals' rays work on a cellular level with a bio-resonance effect on the cells' power stations mitochondria. They can make cells generate their own heat for several hours after the session. It may even raise the whole body's core temperature, improve circulation, and eliminate some minor discomfort and pains.
It's better to start with the lowest or medium temperature levels 1-3 or 30-45°C and short procedures of 20 - 30 minutes and to have not more than 2-3 sessions a week to see how your body reacts and then gradually increase the temperature and the length of the procedure over time. Of course, if you are an experienced FIR sauna user, you can start with the maximum temperature level or even use two mats (sandwiched procedures).
