The History of Far Infrared Heat Therapy
Our bodies radiate far infrared energy through the skin at 3 to 50 microns, with a peak around 9.4 microns. Our palms emit FIR energy also, between 8 and 14 microns. "Palm Healing" - an ancient tradition in China - has used the healing properties of far infrared rays for 3,000 years. These natural healers emit energy and heat radiating from their hands to heal, much the same as Reiki healers do.
Current research conducted in Taiwan has measured significant far infrared energy emitted from the hands of Chi Gong masters. Yogis in India also utilize palm healing and recommend it especially for relieving eye strain.
Thermal therapy has in fact been in existence for thousands of years, dating back to ancient civilizations such as the Finns, the Romans, the ancient Chinese and the American Indians.
Since ancient times, people have believed that exposure to sunshine can maintain and even enhance health. Sun therapy is a form of natural Far Infrared Heat thermal therapy - as emitted by the Therasage Healing Pads and Saunas.
Far Infrared Rays are the invisible rays of natural sunlight that have the longest wavelength and is the reason you feel "warmed" by the sun on a sunny day and instantly cooler when a cloud blocks the sun (blocks the infrared rays from warming your body even though the surround temperature doesn't change). However, since sunlight contains ultra-violet ray which have been proven to be damaging, exposure to the sun to enjoy the benefits of Far Infrared Heat should only be enjoyed in moderation.

From the desk of Dr. Kevon Arthurs
As a naturopathic physician, in practice for 17 years, I have used Jade Far-Infrared (FIR) therapeutically for my patients for years with amazing results. These various therapeutic effects range from musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and acute conditions from digestive, respiratory to liver and kidney conditions, to the stubborn inflammatory states of arthritis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Deep seated viral conditions are helped by the increase in immune activity. This therapy can even provide relief for the unpredictable and erratic symptoms of Lyme disease and HIV.
Clearly the physical structure is affected positively, but also the subtle physiological processes in the tissues by the deep heating effect of Jade Far Infrared are greatly enhanced. Far Infrared has the capacity to bring a rapid turnaround of inflammation in many cases. I use it particularly in conditions to expedite resolution in acute conditions like bronchitis, pneumonia, appendicitis, and colitis or gallbladder disease. These conditions can be life threatening, painful and often difficult to assess and relieve.
Patients who use Jade Far-Infrared products daily, or in some cases twice a day, find it works effectively to move inflammation out and bring fresh blood, oxygen and nutrients to the areas needed. By simply removing toxicity and metabolic waste, increasing circulation of blood and lymph to the area, patients find it will speed their recovery.
Acupressure from the Jade rollers open the Bladder (BL) Meridian, stimulating the flow of energy to all parts of the body, bringing the balance and homeostasis, this enhances nerve conduction as well, so important in any healing process.
The Jade FIR massage bed aligns the spinal segments, opens up disc space, releases tension, and increases flexibility in the spine. These are fundamental for the stability of the bipedal human body. It is important for posture, prevention of bone loss and injury through enhancement of agility. Movement and circulation of cerebral spinal fluids increases energy and the flow of fresh blood and nutrients to connective tissues and joints. This is an essential part of maintaining the vitality of the musculo-skeletal system and brain function.
With this treatment you gain a general overall feeling of well-being while allowing the FIR massage bed work the tension and stress from your body and mind. I personally love it and find it keeps my patients strong.

Here are direct quotes from my patients who have used the Jade far infrared massage beds.
After a day of taking care of others and dealing with the stress of hospital work, I am simply exhausted. When I come home and lay down on the Jade FIR massage bed, I feel the gentle flow of warmth, comfort and relaxation, and I know I am doing something good for me. The massage bed is the Divine gift of nurturing that I give myself.

I can actually feel myself get longer when the rollers are going down my back. I feel like I am taller and have much better balance as well. I have a broken segment in my low back for nine years and get intense painful muscle spasms and numbness in my hips and legs. On the bed I become very relaxed and my chronic pain is much relieved. I have much more feeling in my right leg when I get up. The osteopathic doctor, whom I see weekly for my pain, says that I am much easier to align, manipulate and adjust when I have been using my Jade FIR massage bed regularly.

My training for the successful National Professional All-Women Football League is tough. I play full back for my home team the Santa Rosa Scorchers. Therapy sessions on the Jade FIR massage bed really helps. It speeds my recovery from the muscle strain, bumps and bruises of practice and the stress of competition. Besides that, I work two jobs, both of which I have to be on my feet and lifting heavy food crates, managing staff and handling customers. At home, I have a wonderful but demanding son who has recently recovered from Leukemia and a great but high-strung Latino husband to attend to. Needless to say, a therapy session is like a vacation in the islands, the warmth and wavelike rolling of the massage bed is like lying in a jade green sea and puts me right into a deep recuperative sleep.
