Different Heating Pads on the Market
Electric (Regular) versus Far Infrared
The “regular” heating pad for back pain that you can get from your local pharmacy uses thin metal wires or carbon fibre wires to create heat. This type of heat penetrates a mere 2-3 mm and basically only warms your skin (and in many cases burns it). The heat never reaches deep into your muscles, tissues or organs. This is exactly why any pain relief you feel disappears the minute your pad is shut off.
On the other hand, our Infrared heating pad uses a high-performance carbon fiber as the heating element to emit infrared rays with natural jade and tourmaline stones as well, which penetrate much deeper into your body (50mm) – all the way to your muscles, nerves and bones.When far infrared waves penetrate through the skin it turns from light energy into heat energy. Using a far infrared heating pad for about 30 minutes can get you up to 6 hours (!!) of back pain relief – without any medication. Plus, the deep penetrating infrared rays do not only relieve your pain, they actually increase blood circulation in your muscles and help your body HEAL the injured area – faster.
Safety of Wired Heating Pads vs. Infrared Heating Pads
Infrared rays are a part of the Sun’s invisible spectrum. It can’t be seen but it can be felt as heat. They can’t burn you and are 100% safe for all living things. Far infrared heating pads do not emit UV radiation at all. It is so safe in fact, that Far Infrared heat is used in many neonatal units.
Conclusion - Wired Heating vs. Jade Tourmaline stone FIR Heating
While a regular heating pad has no other health benefits other than temporarily heating of your skin, the Journal of American Medical has published a list of the health benefits of far infrared therapy:
Long lasting pain relief
