Far-Infrared (FIR) ttreatments have many healing properties. For instance, the natural wavelengths of far infrared light is essential for bone growth, as well as, to prevent osteoporosis, regulate hormonal functions, and boost your immune system by increasing your white blood cell count and strengthening the body's resistance to infectious diseases, increasing the oxygen capacity of the blood, and improving stress tolerance. Exposure to FIR increases lymphocytes and neutrophils, and reduces the frequency of colds and respiratory infections.
Far infrared Anti-Aging Factor stimulates the production of cell tissue and rapidly promotes the regeneration of skin and blood tissue in areas exposed to its healing rays.
FIR speeds cellular metabolic rates by stimulating the activity of mitochondria, and triggering enzyme activity, flushing out toxins and reducing pain and swelling.
Far infrared (FIR) is able to neutralize blood toxicity and smooth the walls of arteries, capillaries and veins. Once this happens, the delivery of fresh nutrients and oxygen to repair and vitalize tissues by improving blood circulation and oxygenation of tissues. Improves mobility of bones and joints. Reduced inflammation and pain in muscles and joints.
Regular exposure to far infrared rays is similar to physical exercise in its effects on the body. FIR improves the balance of blood pressure, blood sugar, and an increase in oxygen and nutrients in your cells, resulting in increased muscle strength, vitality and mental stability.
Far infrared light affects the hormonal balance of the body, in levels of: Melatonin: hormone derived from serotonin, produced by the pineal gland that plays a role in sleep, aging and reproduction. Cortisone: naturally occurring steroid hormone, primarily in carbohydrate metabolism, and is used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, adrenal insufficiency, certain allergies and gout. Testosterone: white crystalline steroid hormone, most potent naturally occurring androgen.

Why is works
Jade naturally emits Far-infrared
when you pass other heat mediums through it. Jade contains the minerals calcium and magnesium. Jade has the same wave length as the human GI () wave and penetrates the human cell. When the jade is heated, it emits long wave far infrared rays that penetrate the body 14 ~ 15 cm ( 5.5 ~ 6 inches ). It makes resonance effects that can revive tissue, promote blood circulation and eliminate harmful waste toxin. Jade is the most efficient natural heat absorber of all the semi-precious stones.
Some Benefits of Jade:
Ideal for beautification and health care, helps to fight sickness and disease. Found to be helpful for kidney, heart, and stomach ailments. Prevent intrusion of harmful substances to the body and improves immunity. Shields from static and electromagnetic waves by releasing healthy far-infrared. Produces negative ions which encourage the cells metabolism throughout your body.
Combining these property with that of Tourmaline:
Known as the “Electric Stone”, Tourmaline is the highest-energy crystal in the world. In 1880, lab experiments performed by Pierre and Jacques Curie proved that Tourmaline generates a weak electrical charge. This electrical charge enables Tourmaline to produce far infrared photon energy, negative ions, and alpha waves. This a semi-precious natural nonmetal mineral is safe to use and is well-known for its unique ability to emit negative ions and far-infrared rays. Tourmalinehas the ability to help relieve stress, increase mental alertness, improve circulation and strengthen the immune system. It’s also a powerful agent for reducing toxin-related ailments. Furthermore, tourmaline produces a detoxifying, cleansing effect on the nervous system, as well as the organs and tissues of the body. It has been shown as a useful aid for improving circulation, reducing stress, improving brain alertness and activating the immune system. After being crushed and grinded, the stones are then compressed into tiles, increasing the productivity of negative ions by up to 15% providing unique results with level over 1500.
are also helpful in enhancing your autonomic nervous system and its functionality, reinforcing collagen, improving metabolism, and making your immune system stronger. Further research show that negative air ions may improve chronic depression. (View research article)

Negative ions are typically found in the natural environment at the seashore, near waterfalls and in pine forests.
Far infrared and its therapeutic properties have been studied in China and Japan for over 30 years. Researchers have found far infrared can be helpful for enhancing blood circulation, reducing pain, strengthening the cardiovascular system, easing joint stiffness and inflammation, and revitalizing skin cells. Thermal radiation (or infrared) is a band of energy in the complete electromagnetic spectrum and it has been used effectively for millennia to treat/ease certain maladies and discomforts.
The benefits of infrared heat is further enhanced by natural jade stone. Jade is the most efficient natural infrared heat absorber of all the semiprecious stones. When run through jade, far infrared passes its heat smoothly to the body. It also creates negative ions, which is a further benefit. Our bodies are positively charged, and introducing the body to a negative ion environment (such as that found at the ocean side) is calming and soothing.
The benefits of far infrared therapy are enhanced by jade stone, which helps healing heat penetrate deeper while producing soothing negative ions. Heating pads combining far infrared heat with jade stone provide relief for individuals seeking to increase flexibility, relieve discomfort, boost circulation, and relieve stress and fatigue.

What Is Far Infrared or FIR?
The electromagnetic spectrum of light consists of visible rays and invisible rays. The infrared spectrum is just below visible (red) light and is divided into three (3) ranges of Near, Medium and Far Infrared Rays.
Far infrared rays are photons of light energy radiating within a specific measurement of wavelengths from 4 to 1,000 microns. Although, far infrared is invisible to the human eye, it can be felt. Many skeptics are somewhat astonished to discover it's warm soothing feeling. Upon being absorbed by the soft tissues of your body, FIR (9-14microns) appears to be most resonant with cell tissues and harmonizes with your own life-force energy. This natural process, known as “resonance absorption”, produces warmth and stimulates your metabolism, possibly making far infrared light, just as important as vitamins and minerals to the body's proper functioning.
Far infrared therapy is completely safe. It has nothing to do with either ultraviolet radiation (which gives you a sunburn and damages your skin) or atomic radiation (the kind from a nuclear bomb).
Far Infrared light rays increase blood circulation, and subsequently the oxygen supply to damaged tissues in your hands and fingers. Increased circulation results in the reduction of chronic pain and swelling, and promotes the healing process.
HOW IT WORKS:
Far Infrared Rays of light energy are the safest and the most beneficial to your health.
Only specific wavelengths (6-14 microns) of FIR are readily absorbed into the cells of your body by a natural phenomenon known as “Resonance Absorption.” Your body’s cells will only accept and absorb FIR that’s identical in frequency (9-14 microns). The rest passes through harmlessly. FIR light energy is transformed into heat energy resulting in a thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues. This is what sparks your microcirculation and enhances your metabolism. The warming effect of FIR can stimulate cellular metabolism and blood circulation in your hands. It can also promote the elimination of poisons, carcinogenic heavy metals, and other toxic substances that the body encapsulates in water molecules and stores in the subcutaneous fat cells. Once you begin to improve the circulation in your hands from far infrared therapy, special things begin to happen. FIR helps to reduce swelling of joints and knuckles, relieves pain, and promotes cellular rejuvenation. Through “resonance absorption”, FIR increases the molecular vibration of your cells as it penetrates through the skin to the subcutaneous tissues. As the molecules of your cells are illuminated with far infrared light rays of the same “frequency”, it actually boosts your cellular metabolism. Uric acid crystals can also accumulate in the finger, thumb and wrist joints of your hands. These tiny little “jabbers” can prick and grind away at the cartilage and tendons causing severe pain. Far infrared rays actually break apart the bonds of uric acid and help dissolve and eliminate them.

Far-infrared rays have certain kinds of effects on the human body, especially on skin, blood circulation, and skin cell vitalizing. Some jewelry powders radiate far-infrared rays. Jade has powerful far-infrared ray radiation, and tourmaline has pyroelectric and piezoelectric properties and radiated far-infrared rays. The jewelry powders (fine powdered jade and tourmaline powders) were screened by far-infrared rays for radiation properties and tested for the effects of far-infrared rays on the human skin by temperature observation using an infrared thermal analyzer.
Far Infrared Therapy Inhibits Vascular Endothelial Inflammation via the Induction of Heme Oxygenase-1
These results demonstrate that FIR therapy exerts a potent antiinflammatory effect via the induction of HO-1. The ability of FIR therapy to inhibit inflammation may play a critical role in preserving blood flow and patency of AVFs in hemodialysis patients. (Read the Full Study)
Far Infrared Health Benefits (excerpt from The Health Benefits of Far Infrared Therapy)
by Dr. Edward Group DC, NP, DACBN, DCBCN, DABFM
I am a huge proponent of using Far Infrared as an aid in detoxification. In my practice, I have found that this type of therapy may help in fat loss, chronic fatigue, water retention, skin disorders, as well as in the elimination heavy metals, poisons, and carcinogenic material from our bodies.
Whenever we process food, and particularly when we have processed unhealthy food or meats, our bodies create lactic acids and free fatty acids, as well as excess sodium and uric acid. In my patients who have skin problems, I have often found that this type of therapy can help clean the liver and kidneys, instead of overworking the skin in processing our toxins out through the dermis.
Far Infrared therapy very gently increases blood flow by expanding the capillaries that carry blood. It also increases oxygenation and regeneration of the blood, deeply detoxifying it for the improved functioning of all of the major organs in the body, which depend on blood for energy. This detoxification is on the deepest level, allowing hidden toxins in the blood and tissue to be dissolved or immobilized.
Through the subtle heating, Far Infrared boosts our immune system, increasing the amount of white blood cells and killer T-cells. It is an excellent therapy for promoting healing, reducing muscle soreness, muscle spasms and relief for rheumatoid arthritis. Research by NASA has shown that far infrared on the cardiovascular system was a great way of keeping astronauts hearts’ in optimal condition.
Negative Ion to provide relief from SAD. February, 1995 issue of "Journal of Alternative and Comparative Medicine".
Researchers Dr. Michael Terman (head of Columbia's Winter depression department) and Dr. Jiuan Su Terman conducted a study of the impact of negative ion therapy on people suffering from seasonal affective disorder (winter depression)--an illness that is often symptomatically indistinguishable from "all-year" depression; researchers believe that the biology of seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is very similar to that of "all-year" depression, hence, the same antidepressant drugs (such as Prozac) are used to treat both.
The study was conducted in double blind fashion and divided clinically depressed subjects into two groups. The subjects in the first group were treated for 30 minutes a day for 20 days with a low density ion generator that produced only 10,000 ions/cubic centimeter (the control group). The subjects in the second group were treated for 30 minutes a day for 20 days with a high density ion generator that produced 2,700,000 ions/cubic centimeter (the experimental group). The remission or "cure" criterion used was a 50% or greater reduction in symptom frequency and severity using the SAD version of the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale. The results of this study shocked the medical community: While a low density negative ion generator provided little benefit, a high density negative ion generator gave relief from depression comparable to that given by Prozac and other antidepressants, without drug side effects.
