                               WHAT IS FIR?

           “Far-Infrared Radiant heat, or FIR, was developed by NASA to help astronauts stay healthy in space. The infrared light waves penetrate 6-8 inches into the body and stimulate healing, oxygenate and increase blood flow, reduce swelling and inflammation, improve lymph flow, and help cleanse the body of toxic and acid waste...Healers emit this energy through the palms of their hands at an output of 8-14 microns. Now you can get this from a machine.Walt Crocker
 

What Can FIR do for me?

The FIR dome and HTE's other FIR products quickly provide you deep relaxation and release the effects of stress in today's intense world.  The FIR dome creates a place of sacred space as one colleague described it.  The FIR dome transports me to the realm of the angels, said another.  FIR does far, far more than just relax you.

The SO in SOQi refers to Solar energy, more specifically, a precise, narrow spectrum of healing rays from the sun that science refers to as Far Infrared, or FIR.  The health benefits and healing that FIR rays give are tremendous and well documented, summarized in a 13 page report,  What can FIR do for you? which you can download here as a .pdf

THE FIR DOME

HTE's FIR dome has been created with state of the art technology and patents exclusive to HTE.  The FIR dome has been nicknamed the 'Hot House' for its nuturing effect. It does NOT get hot, but generates a gentle warming sensation as it radiates 8-14 micron far infrared rays, the natural rays from the sun and found to emanate from healers' hands, the rays that have been found to be the most beneficial for human beings and pets.  The FIR dome is available in two sizes, original and "Grande" for large people or for folks to use simultaneously themselves with their pets and with infants or small children.

For nearly ten years, the FIR dome has proven invaluable for my clients, my family and for myself.   I've seen it ease anxiety, accelerate wound healing, and dramatically reduce inflammation and swelling.  Time and again it has reduced or eliminated pain, broken up congestion, aided detoxification and has never failed to bring glowing relaxation and positive emotional changes with everyone who tries it.

Using a FIR dome before and after surgery has resulted in less time in spent in recovery, shorter than predicted hospital stays, post surgical reduction of pain and swelling, and rapid incision healing.   Clients rave that it eases pain and speeds their recovery after oral surgery and dental work.   A retired navy surgeon client of mine in his late 70s received both a FIR dome treatment and a SHEN session the day before abdominal surgery for a large hernia. He recovered so fast the doctors had a hard time believing it. He was operated on early in the morning and his vitals were good enough that he was cleared him to go home in the late afternoon! He had been told to prepare for an overnight stay, at least, and probably 2 to 3 days.  He delighted in surprising his colleagues by showing up to a luncheon a day after his surgery!  They didn't believe he'd had the operation until he lifted his shirt and showed them the incision!   

The FIR dome is also a beauty spa, increasing the absorption of moisturizers and healthy botanicals as well as gently stimulating and revitalizing your skin and face!

I use 3 FIR domes: one at home, one is shared with health professionals at my office, and one out consistently on loan to clients recovering from surgery, dental work, injury etc.  My oldest FIR dome is over 10 years old and is in constant use.  They are worth their weight in gold.  Please read on.

The FIR Dome saved my life when bacteria from an infected tooth entered my blood stream a few summers ago.  I crawled under the FIR dome during a 3 day 4th of July holiday weekend and kept the dome over my head and throat, getting up only to hydrate and use the bathroom,  until medical help was available (an emergency root canal with a lot of antibiotics). The dentist, as well as a colleague who had had a friend die when bacteria went into his brain from a similarly infected tooth, expressed amazement that I was alive. Following the surgery, I continued to use the FIR dome and had no pain or swelling!

I am not available 24/7, and I can get fatigued.  I charge by the hour for my services, and it's also difficult for me as a healer to treat myself as effectively as I treat clients.  The FIR dome IS available 24/7, its energy does not fluctuate, you can use it to treat yourself, and you pay for it only once.

How Far Infrared  (FIR) Rays Work

FIR has considerable effect on the human body as a beneficial therapy. Although FIR rays cannot be seen with the naked eye, they have the ability to penetrate deeply into the human body and reach the tissues and organs. They produce comfort, relaxation and an environment where healthy cells thrive.
     FIR elevates the temperature of subcutaneous layers, thus expanding blood capillaries, stimulating blood circulation, increasing metabolism between blood and tissue, promoting tissue regeneration, detoxification and reducing cramping.  FIR is also effectively adjusts autonomic nerve function and relaxes over stimulated sensory nerves.  FIR radiates warmth and penetrates to the meridian points of human body, just as acupuncture needles reach deep into tissue, however FIR does not leave any marks on the skin.  FIR greatly increases the therapeutic effect when it is combined with acupuncture or chiropractic treatment and it feels marvelous!

Sun, Heat and FIR

When we bask in the sun, the sunlight activates every cell in the human body.  We all know how important the sun's rays are to our well being.  Yet now, because of the thinner ozone layer, we are told we must slather chemicals on our skin to protect us and prevent the sun's damaging rays from reaching us.  The Far Infrared Rays that the FIR dome provides are the beneficial rays of the sun, the part of natural sunlight with the longest wavelength without any added chemicals.

When we feel hot, we will instinctively seek shade. When we feel cold, we seek the warmth of sunshine. We have an innate desire for a comfortable temperature. Comfortable temperature is actually synonymous with a comfortable energy frequency or “wavelength.” That wavelength happens to be 8 to 14 microns - the same as FIR!

When living beings absorb FIR of 8 to 14 micron wavelength, we experience resonance absorption, or elevation of molecular energy.  This vibrating movement of molecules in living tissue activates cells and enhances metabolism.   Several studies have been performed on healers, using Chi Gong masters from mainland China and Taiwan as subjects measuring the rays that emanated from their hands while they worked. The healing rays (also called chi, or prana) that emanated from their hands are the same 8-14 micron rays that the FIR dome produces, the same wave length as the beneficial rays above from our sun!  (Alternative Medicine, January 2004).

Studies and articles are also available on FIR rays' effectiveness for wound healing, reducing bacterial and virus infection, dental work, pain relief, etc.

The warming effect of FIR also promotes the elimination of carcinogenic heavy metals, toxic substances from food processing, lactic acid, free fatty acids, excess sodium associated with hypertension, uric acid which causes pain and subcutaneous fat associated with aging and fatigue.  FIR rays can activate the sebaceous glands, allowing accumulated cosmetics in pores can be eliminated through the skin rather than by the kidneys.

In summary, FIR is not just a comfortable warming device, it activates bodily functions enhancing and energizing your physical, emotional and spiritual states.

Far Infrared (FIR) Treatments

Treatments generally last 15 minutes to an hour. Initially, relief is only temporary, but with repeated treatments the duration of relief becomes longer and eventually becomes lasting.

There are guidelines for dosage, intensity and duration of treatment. Drink 6 to 8 ounces of water before and after your FIR treatment. During your treatment, you should not experience pain nor have a marked perception of heat. Following treatment, the skin may be temporarily be slightly pinker than usual, and the treated area may feel much like it has been massaged.

Very good results have been achieved and pain was relieved in cases of shoulder stiffness, bursitis, trifacial neuralgia, articular rheumatism, and lumbago after as few as one or two treatments. Speed of effectiveness and range of applicability are much better than for other heat therapies.

Researchers reported a near 90% success in the research of FIR therapy with:  lumbar strain, soft tissue injury, arthritis, sciatica, pain during menstruation, neurodermatitis, eczema with infection, post-surgical infections, diarrhea, pelvic infection, pediatric pneumonia, frostbite with inflammation.

Far Infrared is so safe that it is used in many hospitals around the globe to warm newborn babies. 

 

Pets love it too!

FIR Pad

2 feet x 3 feet, HTE's FIR pad rolls up into a carry bag and is light and easy to travel with. It can be draped over your shoulders, back, or abdomen, or rolled around a leg, wrist, elbow, waist or arm to alleviate soreness, muscle spasms, aches, pains, stiffness from sports injuries. 

The far infrared rays of the FIR pad relax tight muscles and increase blood flow, as well as aid relief of conditions such as arthritis, rheumatism, neuralgia and menstrual cramps.

I use a FIR pad under a sheet on my SHEN table, where it radiates far infrared into the muscles along the spine, warming and relaxing my clients as they release fears and other emotions and receive the physio-emotional healing they came to me for. 

How to use:
Simply switch on the power, choose the temperature you desire and the length of time, then relax and enjoy.
