The Health Benefits of Tourmaline

Tourmaline is a semi-precious mineral stone well known for its incredible ability to aid in the detoxification process of the human body. But tourmaline is much more than a beautiful, natural stone formation. Its benefits on health have been widely researched. Research has found that a positive and a negative electrode existed on each end of the crystal, even when broken down. When these positive and negative electrodes were connected to each other, a small electrical charge can be detected (0.06mA). Source: (Niwa Institute for Immunology, Japan Int J. Biometeorol 1993 Sep; 37(3)133-8). As such, Tourmaline is considered to be the only mineral on Earth to carry an intrinsic electrical charge.

It is also a natural source of negative ions and far infrared (FIR) rays. The far infrared rays created by tourmaline actually produce the same resonance in the body that is normally found in water. For this reason it is widely used in China and Japan as it is thought to be helpful for improving circulation, relieving stress, increasing mental alertness and strengthening the immune system function.

The Acupressure Freckle

The primary materials used to make the active component of the Acupressure Freckle have been combined for their natural, magnetic and thermal potential qualities. A fine powder of Mica, Tourmaline, Germanium are combined with Elvan, Sunyak Stone, Charcoal and Vitamin C to give each Freckle an extra
health boost.

How Does it work?

When tourmaline is broken down into a fine powder, put under pressure or exposed to heat, for example body heat, it creates an electrical charge capable of emitting far infrared waves and negative ions.

Each Freckle therefore emits far-infrared rays at the wavelength of 8-14 microns and considerable amounts of negative ions (800-1000 anions). This is comparable to the level emitted by a thick forested area. It therefore helps to improve metabolism, promote blood circulation and increase body temperature around that point. In short, it is a functional product to help aid health and balance in our body by gently and naturally stimulating specific acupressure points.

What are the benefits of far infrared rays?

Far infrared rays are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate many layers of the human physical body therefore having a powerful effect on our tissues, muscles and bone. They gently increase blood flow by expanding the capillaries that carry blood, which in turn promote oxygenation and regeneration of the blood, deeply detoxifying for improved function of our organ systems. 

For this reason, they are thought to enhance circulation in the skin, and may help modulate sleep, ease pain, protect against oxidative stress, and relieve inflammation. These benefits are enhanced by the stone tourmaline, which has a thermal potential helping healing warmth penetrate deeper and has a negative ion potential.

What are the benefits of negative ion therapy?

There have been many studies researching the benefit of negative ion therapy. Anions (negtive ions) have been found to help protect the body against negative effects caused by induced physical stress. They are also able to neutralise free radicals that may contribute towards diseases in the body, in
addition to boosting immune-system function and revitalising the metabolism of cells. Anions can help bring the body into balance after long-term exposure to electromagnetic fields e.g. excessive positive ions from mobile phone, computers and TVs.
