By integrating a soothing, personal massage with acupressure treatment while providing deep, penetrating heat therapy and far-infrared light therapy, many remarkable results can occur. Aches and pains, tension and stress just disappear as you float away on a sea of relation!

How does Nuga Best work?

Just as a tree needs a strong root system in order to grow properly and sustain good health, so too do human beings. The human root system is comprised of the central nervous system and the cardiovascular system, the first two to developin the human fetus. Every other system and organ in the body develops subsequently from them. Together, they bring oxygen, water, nutrients, hormones, and essential life force energy to every part of the body, while at the same time eliminating waste products. To the extent that these two systems and the spinal column that supports them are healthy, a human being will be healthy. With clean blood and free flowing chi enhancing the ability to experience optimal health, our bodies can function as nature intended.

Unfortunately, given the many stresses and strains of modern life combined with poor dietary habits and lack of exercise, most us develop plaque, cholesterol, fatty deposits, and toxins in our circulatory system as well as various blockages in the energetic pathways of our nervous system. We also tend to suffer as we age from a general deterioration of the spinal column. In other words, our root systembecomes damaged and this, in turn, begins to undermine our overall health.

The good news is that Nuga Best Therapeutic Thermal Massage Table goes directly to the source of these health problems: the human root system itself. As the weight of the body presses against the bed, the internally heated (by helium light bulbs) jade rollers emit far-infrared rays and move slowly up and down the sides of the spine, conforming to its natural contours. These rollers transmit a highly therapeutic form of heat and light approximately 3 inches into the body and have both a massage phase and an acupressure phase. This process accomplishes several things. First, it relaxes the muscles and tendons along the spine, thereby allowing the vertebrae to gently and gradually align themselves. Secondly, it stimulates major acupuncture meridians directly on top of and along the sides of the spine, causing powerful bioelectrical impulses to course along the extensive network of nerve fibers, ultimately energizing every system and organ inthe body. It also accelerates blood circulation by warming up and dilating the veins and arteries, while at the same time dissolving waste products that build up in the blood. This helps to flush waste products out of the body. Increasing the temperature in the back and pelvic region also helps the bone marrow generate healthy new blood cells. Over time, as the vital life force energy (chi) and blood begin to flow more freely throughout the body, one feels rejuvenated, stronger, more peaceful, better able to fight disease and meet the strenuous demands of modern life.

What are far-infrared rays?


Infrared light is part of the sun’s invisible spectrum. Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Our atmosphere has a window in it that allows infrared rays in the 7 to 14 micron range to safely reach the earth’s surface.

Our bodies radiate infrared energy in the 3-50 micron range, with most output at 9.4 microns. Our palms emit infrared energy at 8-14 microns.

One of far-infrared (FIR) light’s characteristics is the ability to easily penetrate human tissue. When this happens, it creates a natural resonance, which has many beneficial properties. Dr. Toshiki Yarnazaki, M.D., author of “The Science of Far-Infrared Therapies” reports that one of the reasons FIR has such beneficialresults in a variety of illness is it’s ability to remove toxins which are at the core of may health problems. For example, when toxic gases such as carbon dioxide andsulphur dioxide or toxic substances such as lead or mercury meet large water molecules, they are encapsulated by clusters of water in the body. Where these toxins accumulate, blood circulation is blocked and cellular energy is impaired. However, when a 7 to 14 micron FIR wave is applied, the water begins to vibrate.

This vibration reduces the ion bonds of the atoms, which are holding together the water molecules. As the breakdown of water occurs, encapsulate gases and other toxic substances are released.

FIR has been used for over thirty years to treat patients and has been effective in a wide variety of conditions. Some such conditions are: TMJ, arthritis, high blood pressure, benign prostrate hypertrophy, high cholesterol, pain, hemorrhoids, cystitis, gastritis, asthma and bronchitis, sore throat, muscle tension, muscle spasms, adhesions, cold hands and feet, poor skin tone, acne, body odor, eczema and psoriasis. FIR light is one of the safest therapies on the market today having almost no side effects and various positive benefits. It reduces sensitivity of neural pathways and causes the body to release endorphins that provide a non-toxic, natural form of pain relief.

Why Jade?


In traditional Eastern medicine, jade is known to have healing qualities. It is known as a natural transmitter of far-infrared rays in the same waveform as from the human body. It contains vital elements for the human body such as calcium and magnesium. Jade also produces negative ions. It is well known in the Orient for slowing the process of aging and has the ability to strengthen the body’s natural defenses and healing abilities. The health benefits of jade are also known in the West. In a study done in Germany, it was reported that jade improves high blood pressure and poor circulation. Mice fed with jade filtered water have shown decreases in high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels as well as improvements in sperm counts and regenerative functions.

Why Helium Light Bulbs?


The element helium is named after the sun (Helius is the Greed work for sun). The sun produces energy from unclear reactions that form helium nuclei. In the process of undergoing these nuclear fusion reactions, the sun emits large amounts of heat and light, which the earth receives. Bathed in this light, the planet is warmed which makes all life processes possible. Helium is the second most abundant element next to hydrogen. It is the helium “growth ray” that causes plants to grow in the direction of sunlight. Life is ultimately based on the energy of incoming visible light utilized by plants which produce oxygen and food.Helium light bulbs produce heat using a special wavelength, which is scientifically known to penetrate deeper than conventional methods. When grasses are exposed to a helium neon light bulb, they grow twice as fast. By heating with helium projected through jade rollers in the Nuga Best, far-infrared light waves and deep heat penetrate and soothe the body, while inducing the flow of energy, stimulating protein synthesis and cell division, and increasing the production of healthy blood. As the light and heat from far-infrared rays pass through the wastematter in the blood stream, cholesterol, plaque, and other coagulants break down and are excreted.

What is heat therapy?


According to Justus Lehman, M.D., in his book Therapeutic Heat and Cold, it is generally accepted that heat produces desirable therapeutic results. Some of them are: increases the flexibility of collagen tissues, decreases joint stiffness, relieves muscle spasms, relieves pain, expands blood vessels and increases circulation, activates sweat glands, helps detoxification, and speeds recuperation. According to a nationwide study by the New Jersey Medical School published in the Spine Journal, May 15, 2002, heat therapy is more effective than analgesics for the relief of low back pain. Results showed that heat therapy provided significantly more pain relief beginning on the first day and that the effects lasted more than 48 hours after the treatment ended.A Nuga Best treatment provides deep, penetrating, soothing heat through the jade rollers as well as through a Tourmanium Ceramic Heater Mat and the jade five ball projector which is conveniently used on any part of the body.

What is Acupressure?


The Eastern art of acupressure evolved form acupuncture, an ancient art estimated to be 6,000 to 12,000 years old. It is one of the oldest and most commonly used procedures in the world. It is based on the theory that there is energy called chi or ki flowing through our bodies along pathways called meridians. Theoretically, a blocking or imbalance of chi at any point may result in illness. Traditional Eastern practitioners insert very thin needles into the skin along the meridians to unblock the energy flow and to stimulate energy in order torestore health. Acupressure is based on the exact same theories only no needlesare used, only focused pressure applied. Eastern medical practitioners have mapped the human body with specific acupuncture points, many of which lie alongside and near the spine. Nuga Best mimics acupuncture without the discomfort ofinserting a needle. Instead, applied pressure with far-infrared light and heat therapy performs the role of the acupuncture needles or of the focused pressure of acupressure. State of the art technology is here now in Nuga Best for your personal benefit and enjoyment!

What is The Massage Effect?


The benefits of massage therapy are widely known and go well beyond simple enjoyment. Some of the effects are: relaxes the muscles and tendons, increases flexibility, reduces anxiety, improvement in insomnia, balances the muscles, increases circulation and blood oxygenation and reduces pain. Many, many morebenefits have been reported. Nuga Best automatically massages the muscles and tendons around the spine, relaxing hardened nerve roots, relieving tension, and improving the flow of chi. Lie back, relax, and enjoy!A Word of Caution:“Improvement Reactions” may occur. This is a temporary, natural process, which may make you feel worse in order to ultimately help you feel better. Daily use of the Nuga Best may reveal hidden disease conditions and health problems throughthe detoxification process with may temporarily cause symptoms such as: high blood pressure, anemia, backaches, headaches, fatigue, roughening of the skin, stomach discomfort, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, flu-like symptoms, acne, sweating, etc.

If experienced at all, improvement reactions can vary greatly and symptoms may occur several times throughout the detoxification process. An improvement reaction usually shows itself within 3 to 5 days of first use, but that also can vary greatly. Some variables are: general state of health, medication currently taking or those taken in the past, diet, physical activity, and the amount of stress a person is under. Some people experience improvement reactions weeks after their first use. Some never experience them at all. In any case, the most important way to reduce or eliminate any such reaction is the flush the released toxins out of the body by drinking plenty of good quality water.

So, if this happens to you, please be encouraged and continue to use the Nuga Best as this will not only gradually eliminate the discomforts, but also speed the improvement process. Just as ongoing physical activity in spite of occasional discomforts keep bodies in shape, continued use of Nuga Best helps achieve desired results. On the other hand, if you feel great from the beginning, this may indicate that you body’s healing speed is faster than the speed of waste excretion. If this is the case, you are very fortunate! In any event, remember that improvement reactions are normal and can lead to a healthier body.
