So many of us have chronic pain or know someone who does. I have fibromyalgia and other muscle and joint issues which affect me daily including severe sciatic pain. Pain relief can make the difference in a good day and a bad one, how we interact with our family and friends, even our general outlook on life.
As a holistic health therapist, I am always looking for ways for myself and others to improve their quality of life and increase wellness. I feel that a healthy lifestyle including alternative therapies can improve your life for the better and help you live with joy, peace and purpose.
For years I have watched my family members and friends suffering from arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, back pain and so much more. I’m a strong believer in a healthy whole food diet, staying well-hydrated, electrolytes, probiotics and omegas as well as cranio-sacral work, acupuncture, massage, t’ai chi, chi gung, yoga, mindfulness and meditation.
Recently I’ve found a new alternative therapy that I’m really excited about! Have you heard about infrared technology helping with pain relief? Far Infrared Therapy is natural and non-invasive. Experienced by us as heat, it’s the invisible part of the sunlight spectrum. It’s the wonderful warmth you feel with the sun on your skin.
HealthyLine makes Far Infrared heating mats created in collaboration with inventors and healthcare professionals.that are definitely worth checking out!
I love the mats they have that provide completely natural gemstone heat therapy. The gemstone surface has jade, amethyst, tourmaline and sometimes obsidian as well. As you heat the gemstones, they emit far-infrared rays (FIR) in large amounts. FIR are most commonly received from sunlight and these rays can penetrate 4-6″ into body tissues, help stimulate circulation, decrease pain, inflammation, stiffness and stress, and promote relaxation. Each mat also comes with a foil space blanket to amplify the effectiveness. You get the same benefits as an infrared sauna but with the inclusion of negative ions and a fully functional pulsed electromagnetic field system.
These treatments are very helpful for arthritis, fibromyalgia, lower back and sciatic pain, even daily aches. While infrared saunas may be helpful, they can be very expensive and you have to leave the comfort of your home which is no fun when you just want to relax. You can use these mats anywhere. Think of how much money you can save on holistic health treatments as well. It truly is a wonderful investment towards wellness.
Far Infrared Therapy is channeled thru heated gemstones:
Amethyst – emits a steady flow of far infrared and negative ions and can promote better healing, sleep and overall wellbeing.
Jade – emits a low heat that is wonderful for relaxation and meditation and helps restore energy and efficient body function
Tourmaline – produces the highest amount of negative ions out of the gemstones used, revitalizes you and helps detoxify
Negative Ion Therapy – Did you know that technology can disturb negative ion exposure? This is particularly relevant as so many of us use it so often. Negative Ions are nature’s purifiers. They are plentiful near waterfalls and bodies of water such as rivers and oceans. They can help you feel more at ease and promote good health. That sense of well-being so many feel after a rainstorm may be caused by the high concentration of negatively charged ions n the air.
HealthyLine heated gemstones provide a boost of negative ions which can ease respiration, decrease stress, detoxify and clear your mind, improve sleep and overall health
The hot stone therapy lets you turn your home into a spa, relaxes and soothes muscles and is scientifically linked to stress reduction and lowering anxiety. It increases blood flow to help pains and heal and can be used with massage and other holistic therapies with synergistically improved results (chiropractic treatments, acupuncture, acupressure). Heating gemstones releases far infrared ray and negative ions and the stone surface also works with your body’s pressure points to de-stress.
Pulsed Electromagnetic fields (PEMF) stimulate cell health and counteract harmful exposure from electronics. PEMF is FDA approved to manage joint pain, bone repair, and signs of depression. It is even used by NASA to maintain the health of astronauts in orbit. Compatible with our own natural biorhythms, it is based on the Earth’s magnetic pulse.
Photon Light Therapy penetrates just below the surface of your skin, helps with motor function and nerve regeneration, and can help manage symptoms of depression including Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
Treatment with Healthy Line far-infrared mats is simple and painless. The energy penetrates the skin and is absorbed by deep tissues. This stimulates blood flow, , improves muscle recovery and decreases pain and inflammation. It can also be used after exercise. Just remember to stay hydrated!
Fibromyalgia and Sleep
I love that these mats can help with sleep as well. Did you know that in the U.S., 30% of adults suffer from short term insomnia, while for 10% or more it is chronic. After a long day, so many just want a good night’s sleep! Sadly, there are more than 3 million new cases of fibromyalgia a year in the U.S. alone. I am all too well aware of the widespread muscle pain, tenderness, fatigue, altered sleep patterns and occasional brain fog.
I’m a firm believer in focusing on improving the body’s organic healing systems through whole foods, yoga and meditation, t’ai chi and acupuncture. HealthyLine Infra-red mats can also help the body manage and deal with pain, relieve muscle tension and sleep better. The mats are completely safe to sleep on.
Each mat comes with a 45-day trial period so you can test it for yourself. Check out HealthyLine’s website for a plethora of cool products including pillows and bedding.
