Modern Techniques

Jade Thermotherapy Massage Bed

Now in The Caesarea Pain Centre - The Jade Thermotherapy Massage Bed.  A synergistic combination of modern technology with the proven healing powers of Acupuncture, Moxibustion and Infrared Therapy.

Treatment consists of massage combined with Infrared - radiant heat, which is transmitted through Jade rollers and an epoxy–carbon panel. A semi-precious gem stone, Jade is used in Chinese medicine to stimulate the Qi, the life force in our body.  One of the special attributes of Jade is its ability to conserve heat and pass it on. Helium bulbs pass light energy through the Jade, which then transforms this into infrared, radiant beaming rays. The infrared-radiant heat penetrates several inches into the body, through the tissues into the deep muscles and the essential internal organs.

At the same time, the Jade rollers move along the spine and legs, while applying pressure, massage, stretching and heat. As the internal projectors move throughout the body during the treatment, they free up the energy channels (Meridians), relax the back muscles, improve blood circulation and promote the smooth flow of Qi.  This action encourages and speeds up recovery in cases such as strained muscles, back pain, joint pain, general aches and pains, rheumatism, arthritis, Fibromyalgia, poor blood circulation, as well as facilitating fat dissolving and toxic cleansing.  In cases of tensed deep tissue muscles, the infrared rays encourage elimination of toxins that block proper blood flow to these areas.
The principle of applying heat to Acupuncture points and Meridians is a therapeutic method of Chinese medicine called Moxibustion or Moxa. The Chinese have used this method to strengthen the body during a cold and as a preventative treatment. Moxa is based on the stimulation of Bio-active points in the human body, by applying heat on them. Heating by Moxa causes physiological and bio-chemical responses, opens a blocked flow of energy in the Meridians and strengthens the immune system.
The special heating unit of the bed radiates infrared-radiant heat, in wavelengths that are most appropriate to the human body. The heating system consists of both an epoxy–carbon panel, which increases the effect of Moxibustion in the back and the lower body and projectors which produce infrared-radiant heat, throughout the roll of Jade stones.
