Benefits to the Human Body of Combining Far Infrared Heat, Massage, and Acupressure with Jade
When the tissues of the human body are heated, lengthened through the application of acupressure massage, and held in a certain position for at least 10 seconds repeatedly, the tissues learn to stabilize in the lengthened position. If you repeat the application for at least 20 sessions, the new lengthening can "set." People suffering from back injuries, lower back pain, and spinal nerve impingement can benefit from the combination of Far Infrared Heat (FIR), massage and acupressure to the back.
Because heating tissues increases blood flow in the same way that exercising does, athletes are using Far Infrared Heat (FIR) in their warm-up routines to increase flexibility. Heating one area of the body produces vascular dilations in distant body areas. FIR decreases stiffness and swelling in joints and connective tissue and has been shown to reduce pain by direct action on both free nerve endings and peripheral nerves. FIR heat may actually produce endorphins, the body's natural pain killers. It kills organisms like bacteria and parasites and attracts calcium into cell membranes.
People generally seek a healing massage to relieve stiffness, tension, and anxiety. Stressed muscles block the proper intake of oxygen and nutrients, which leads to inflammation from toxic build-up in the muscle tissue. Deep tissue massage helps break up and eliminate scar tissue and releases chronic patterns of physical tension. As toxins release, blood and oxygen circulate more fully throughout the body, helping soothe pain from arthritis and fibromyalgia. Massage also calms the central nervous system and brings the brain into an Alpha state to reduce mental stress and improve memory function.
One of the health benefits to the west is Traditional Chinese Medicine's understanding of the bio-electric pathways in the body, called meridians. Thermal pressure on the acupressure points relieves the buildup of excess energy that can adversely affect the functioning of organ systems like the heart, lungs, and gallbladder. For thousands of years jade has been known in Oriental Medicine as a healing stone. When heated, jade emits negative (feel good) ions that are essential for the body's natural anti-aging system. Combining jade and far infrared heat with massage and acupressure, within a therapeutic program, brings positive results of internal harmony and ease of well-being.
