IR or Infrared is electromagnetic radiation with longer wavelengths than those of visible light, therefore invisible and carries radiant energy.
Infrared light is the part of the EM spectrum that people encounter most in everyday life, although much of it goes unnoticed. It is invisible to human eyes, but people can feel it as heat.
IR radiation is one of the three ways heat is transferred from one place to another, the other two being convection and conduction. Everything with a temperature above about 5 degrees Kelvin (minus 450 degrees Fahrenheit or minus 268 degrees Celsius) emits IR radiation. The sun gives off half of its total energy as IR, and much of its visible light is absorbed and re-emitted as IR.
It penetrates the body deeper than red, reaching deep into soft tissues, muscles, joints, and bone, relieves chronic pain and encourage healing.
