Frequently Asked Questions
What is Far-Infrared Heat?
The human body can easily absorb far-infrared Heat because of its deep penetrating ability. Studies have shown that far infrared waves can actually penetrate up to 2-3 inches deep into muscular tissue and ligaments. When far-infrared heat penetrates through the skin into muscular tissue and ligaments, it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues causes blood vessels in capillaries to dilate which improves blood circulation and promotes health and wellness.
Far-infrared Heat is the invisible part of the Sun's spectrum, not to be confused with ultraviolet light which may damage your skin. FIR is the safest form of energy that is directly transmitted onto objects because of its specific wavelength.
Natural, safe, and easy to use, non-invasive Infrared heat products by Therasage™ may be the most exciting personal home health development in over a decade. The heat products designed and manufactured by Therasage™ are at the forefront of a shift in the traditional healthcare system. Recent healthcare trends indicate increasing personal expenses while insurance coverage and benefits are decreasing. Traditional healthcare approaches health issues with costly drugs and invasive procedures. The expanding counter-trend is for the informed consumer to address health needs with safe, natural, proactive home health products and remedies. Therasage™ strives to meet this trend.
Infrared heat is found in near infrared wavelengths (which heats the surface first and the interior through conduction) and in far-infrared heat (which sends deep penetrating heat to create a uniform warming effect). Far-infrared heat can be found in two forms, direct and indirect. Direct far-infrared provides the deep heat to warm you up without raising the temperature of the surrounding air. Indirect Far-infrared heat comes to us through absorbing the excess energy transmitted from plants or animals that are in close proximity to us.

Negative ions are molecules with an extra electron, discovered in 1899 by two scientists named Elster and Geitel. Negative Ions are invisible molecules that we absorb, found in abundance at waterfalls, mountains, beaches and after a rainstorm.
Numerous scientific studies indicate that once they reach our bloodstream, Negative Ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that help calm and relieve stress, alleviate depression, boost our daytime energy and increase our defense against infection by boosting our immune system.
How do I best use the Heating Pad?
As often as possible in your normal daily schedule, in the car, in the office or while watching a movie, etc.
The Heating Pad is designed to be used either on top of or underneath your body. This is an individual’s choice as to what area to blanket with the therapeutic effects of the FAR heat. The soft format allows the pad to conform to the shape of the couch or chair or lounger as well as drape over the body area that the individual cares to treat. This is safe and can be used as long as you want for the desired results.
When should I feel results?
Many people experience immediate relief from tension and remedial pain. Some require several days of regular use to feel the benefits of Far-Infrared Heat. The results vary and will depend upon your underlying conditions and how often you use the Heating Pad. To get the quickest results and greatest benefits, use Heating Pad according to directions as often as possible.
What if I don't feel anything when using the Heating Pad?
Double check that all connections are made with indicator green light of the 12V plug and power adapter. Remember this is not an old fashioned "radiant" heating pad, but you should feel deep penetrating heat.
Sometimes misunderstood, The Therasage™ Heating Pads do not work like a conventional heating pad. The FIR heat from the pad is activated by your own body. It does not heat the ambient air surrounding the pad, so it will only feel luke warm (approximately 104 f) to your touch, even though the heat sensor might indicate high. This allows the pad to get to optimal heat yet not burn the individual as conventional pads might. By placing the pad against your body you are allowing the far-infrared rays to reach an optimal temperature and to be absorbed by your body.
Why is the Heating pad so Different?
It reproduces the beneficial energy of the sun, which provides fuel for our body's cellular growth and helps support the body's immune system.
The Therasage™ Heating Pad brings two different beneficial therapies to the individual.
FIR heat therapy and Negative Ion Therapy. Far-infrared Heat is a type of Deep Heating Modality: In contrast to other superficial heating modalities (e.g., hot water baths, hot packs, electric heating pads, warm compresses) that usually do not heat deep tissues, including muscles. Far-infrared Heat penetrates the subcutaneous layer beneath the skin surface, which usually acts as a thermal insulator and inhibits heat transfer.
FIR radiant heat therapy is a type of conversion heat treatment. This form of heating involves heat transfer by conversion of energy from a wave length energy state (eg, light, sound) to another (heat). The high-energy photons penetrate the tissues. This energy is converted to heat by exciting the water molecules (resonance). (eg. Ultrasound, diathermy modalities) Far infrared waves can actually penetrate up to 2-3 inches deep into muscular tissue and ligaments. Deep and long lasting, usually lasting 1 to 1.5 times longer than the treatment application.
Will the Heating Pad work for my condition?
Even if you don't have any conditions, the heating pad will be good for you. Most of us do not spend enough time outdoors as we should to have the benefits of the natural energy that we get from the sun. If you live the typical "stressed out American lifestyle" or have age related issues, the heating pad is a great "non-invasive" treatment modality.
If you have any concerns regarding your health or medical conditions, consult your doctor before using this product.
How do I clean my Heating Pad?
After unplugging from any electrical source, simply wipe down with a damp cloth or towel. Don't use any alcohol based cleansers. Soft soap on a damp cloth to wipe clean.
Where can I use my Heating Pad?
Use it where you live…in the car, in the home and office. Take it with you on your business and leisure travels.
What will my doctor say about Far Infrared Heat?
Depending on the Parishioners and their area of expertise, the response will vary. Chiropractic and Naturopathic or "Holistic" doctors tend to know and understand more about the positive natural healing effects of FAR Heat than traditional MDs. However, times are changing. Just ask your doctor how much they studied nutrition in medical school, you might be shocked.
Before using this or any other product, consult a physician to make sure the origin of your back pain is not due to a condition that requires medical attention.
Does the heating pad work on all areas of the body?
Can the Heating Pad be use for Diabetics?
Yes. Therasage™ Heating Pads are all about increasing microcirculation, relieving pain, reducing swelling, flushing toxins, and helping to rejuvenate healthy cellular functioning. New research has also discovered that far infrared rays inhibit bacterial growth. Helping to prevent athlete's foot and reduce the chance of infection. Diabetics can especially benefit from the enhanced circulatory benefits of vasodilatation effect that FAR Heat therapy provides. In addition it will enhance our body's ability to detoxify.
***** Word of caution *****
Often advanced stages of Diabetes are coupled with loss of senses or neuropathy. The patient may not have full feeling or sensation of heat or cold, thusly may not know when the pad will achieve a temperature that exceeds the individuals desired level. We always suggest that if there is a question, the client consults their Practitioner.
Precaution: In general diabetics have bad circulation in their feet and hands and due to this there is a decrease in sensitivity hence heating pads can actually cause burns to the feet and other appendages due to the fact that they don't notice how hot they are getting and don't remove them when they should.
Who should NOT use the Heating Pad?
If you have a concern you should always consult your primary physician before using any Product:
- Have open Wounds
- Precautions: Malignancy (including skin lesions), implanted silicon or silicon prostheses, metal implants
Can I burn my self with the Heating Pad?
It is possible (we have to for all product liability disclose this) if used on bare skin (but not likely), as the jade stones can become quite warm and everyone's individuals thresholds for heat vary. We recommend if there is any doubt to use at least one layer of clothing as a protective barrier while using the Therasage™ Heating Pad, remember the Infrared wave length will penetrate through clothing or a hand towel without effecting the heat transfer.
How do I know what the best temperature is for me and my condition?
Everyone's body is different and responds differently to most other forms of heat therapy. Use common sense while in your introductory period with this product (the first few weeks). Start "slow and low" in terms of temperature and time. A suggestion would be to start with one third of the available heat range for twenty minutes and observe the way your body responds to the therapy, and then adjust accordingly. Remember this form of therapy causes your body to detoxify, so depending on the level of toxicity you might feel dizzy or nauseous. The simple remedy for this feeling is to drink water to expel the toxins. More frequent use will bring down your level of toxins and those initial feelings will abate.
How long will the Heating Pad last?
Depending upon use and care, you should see at least 5000 hours worth of continuous operation.
How long does the relief last?
Again, everyone responds differently but in general, for each hour of use the effective therapy should last up to an additional hour.
