What is FIR Therapy?

The visible range of the sun’s light includes our familiar rainbow of colors. But only 44% of the full spectrum of sunlight is in the visible range. High-frequency ultraviolet rays make up 4% and can age skin prematurely or cause cancerous changes. Low-frequency infrared rays make up 52%. They are not harmful and do not damage the skin. Infrared light transmits more heat than ordinary light. FIR therapy uses far infrared light rays to provide some of the benefits of sunshine without direct exposure to the sun.

How does FIR Therapy work?

Absorption of the sun’s rays helps stimulate the body’s metabolism. We need light in order to properly absorb certain nutrients and minerals. A lack of sunlight can lead to lower immune function, tension, fatigue, depression, and insomnia. FIR light raises the body’s temperature. This increases circulation via the dilation of blood vessels, which does not increase blood pressure. FIR heat penetrates past the skin and our insulating fatty layer, 4-6 inches into the body. The body responds to FIR therapy mats faster than to traditional heating pads and the effects continue even after use is ended. The benefits of FIR therapy are enhanced by natural Jade or Tourmaline. The infrared rays emitted by the mats vary from 8um-14um with an average of 9.5um.

  • FIR heat penetrates deep into your body, bones, joints & tissues.
  • FIR waves may destroy cancer or viral cells and reduce swelling.
  • FIR therapy helps relieve pain and fight infection and disease.

What is Negative Ion Therapy?

Negative Ion Therapy uses negative ions to produce beneficial effects. Many people find it improves their health, particularly in the areas of depression, bronchial issues, allergies, blood pressure, stress, and the removal of toxins.

How does Negative Ion Therapy work?

Positive ions can be absorbed from sunlight or electronic devices like computers and cell phones and can inhibit cell functioning. Negative ions boost cells’ ability to use nutrients and remove waste, increase oxygen flow to the brain and balance the body’s pH by decreasing its acidity. European research has shown that negative ions increase collagen production, make cell membranes more permeable, and help strengthen the immune and autonomic nervous systems. Research in Japan has shown that negative ions maintain a balance between insulin and the adrenal functions in the autonomic nervous system.  That negative ionization increases the ions in the calcium and sodium (salt) in the blood and raises its alkalinity. Gamma globulin also increases, creating blood that is rich in proteins as well as antibodies.

What are the benefits of Jade?

In Chinese culture, Jade is believed to protect the kidney, heart, larynx, liver, spleen, thymus, and thyroid and generally to strengthen the body. This may be why jade mats are very popular in Asian countries. As a healing stone, Jade is believed to radiate positive energies. Because of its composition, it can help to relieve magnesium deficiency as well.

Why Tourmaline?

As a healing stone, Tourmaline is said to reduce intestinal and skin problems, support the exchange of oxygen in the blood, improve circulation, and help with diseases of the liver, skin and autonomic nervous system. It is thought to improve the immune, endocrine, and lymphatic systems, heal insomnia and stimulate regeneration throughout the body.
 Brown Tourmaline is reputed to be an excellent grounding stone, aligning and protecting the etheric body. It is said to encourage community spirit and social commitment, heal dysfunctional relationships, and increase empathy and creativity. When Tourmaline is heated, it produces an electrical potential (different electrical charges at opposite ends). It also emits FIR (far infrared) radiation and negative ions, effects that increase when heat is applied.
