History of the Relax Sauna - Harnessing the Power of a Hot Spring

Harnessing the power of a natural hot springs


The Relax Sauna is made in Taiwan.  The Electrical company that makes the Relax Sauna was commissioned by the Japanese government about 30 years ago  (about 1980 – 1985) to try to create an energy that was similar to the Hot Springs in Southern Japan, where the warriors in ancient days would go after battle to heal.  The hot springs had a particular energy that was very healing.   We have since learned that somehow Far infrared energy is generated by the rocks near the springs.   Taiwan is the world leader in producing semi-conductor chips, and as it turns out, approximately 94% of the world’s semi-conductor chips that are made, are made in Taiwan.   

It was quite a challenge, to somehow transform electricity so that the energy generated by the created device would generate this “hot springs” kind of energy. 

It took Dr. Chang, and his team of scientists 10 years to perfect a way to – find a device that would transform electricity into that particular kind of energy that would have the healing effect that the hot springs in Southern Japan had.   They found a way to create what is called a semi-conductor chip which is made out of ceramic chip, has holes in it, has heat components in it, and has far infrared materials embedded in the chip.  The reason for the holes is that the chips get very very very hot, and in order to keep the temperature down, the holes were essential.   If it were not for the fans that blow the heat off of the semiconductor chips, the radiator would get too hot, and like a computer, whose fan goes out, the radiator would shut down.   Here is a picture of the 3 components that make up the Relax Semi-conductor chip:

​The purpose of the semi-conductor chip is to filter out the non-healing energies.   We have an excellent video, made in Taiwan, over 15 years ago that explains a little bit about the technology.

By watching the video over and over again, one can start to understand what the Relax Sauna energy is able to do.   The Industrial Technological Research Institute of Taiwan (semi-conductor experts) was able to test and prove that the Relax Energy generated by the semi-conductor chips was able to be very easily absorbed by the body.    

The semi-conductor chip has an automatic temperature control mechanism which can slow down or speed up the electric current in order to keep the temperature at a safe level at all times.

So as you can see, it is the patented far infrared generators that only the Relax Sauna has which makes it unique among all infrared saunas. 
Try it out out and you will immediately notice the difference like many people have in our many testimonial videos.

    Far Infrared and the relation to Qi Gong

    The Chinese have been using Qi Gong therapy for 3000 years. Now proven by scientific research, the energy emitted by Qi Gong contains far infrared from 8 to 50 microns. Qi Gong therapist's hands touch the body parts of the patients which is similar to far infrared therapy. Qi Gong therapist's hands touch the body parts of the patients which is similar to far infrared therapy.

    What is far infrared?

    We will start with the sun. Sunlight can be divided into visible and invisible light. Visible light upon being refracted will refract into the colors of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, Indigo and violet. Beyond the color red is invisible light of wavelengths 0.76 - 1000 microns, known as far infrared.

    Waves between 4 - 400 microns are known as far infrared. 90% of the wavelength between 8 - 14 microns is known as Light of Life by scientists, because the light within this wavelength helps both plants and animals to grow. The human body is made up of water, protein and other nutrients such as calcium, Iron, sodium and other elements. Far infrared from wavelengths of 5 - 30 microns is able to produce energy. According to theories of physics, the human body is able to absorb far infrared of wavelengths 5 - 30 microns. This type of far infrared is able to increase human energy and create warmth in the body, thus producing resonance with the body and providing healing power, especially with wavelengths of 6 -14 microns. It is essential for growth of humans and all beings. Now, it has been recognized by biologists and societies of human engineers.

    1. What is the benefit FIR to the human body?

    It activates water molecules and increases body oxygenation. The human body contains approximately 70% water. The water content in blood is even higher at the ratio of 80%. If blood does not contain enough oxygen, water molecules in blood will contain 4 hydrogen molecules and 1 oxygen molecule turning it into “Lazy Water.” It will not be able to pass through cells.

    Far infrared is able to create resonance with the water molecule causing it to become a 2-hydrogen and 1-oxygen molecule. That will turn it into a normal water molecule. This will increase the oxygenation of the body, activate body cells, enhance mental fitness, enhance the immune system and slow down the aging process.

    2. Improve circulation.

    Water molecules are able to move freely between cells and, through resonance, turns into energy. It increases the temperature below the epidermis, increases blood flow and enlarges capillaries. The bigger the capillary, the less pressure on the heart. The function of the capillary is to provide oxygen and nutrients to all 60 trillion human cells and transfer waste from the results of metabolism out of the body.

    If something is wrong with the circulation system, it will cause many diseases, high blood pressure, cardiovascular diseases, lumps, arthritis, numbness and/or coldness in arms and legs, etc. An adult’s capillaries can surround the earth 3 times and is known as Human’s Second Heart. It is very important.

    3. Increases metabolism.

    If circulation is improved, waste from the metabolism will be able to be discharged from the body quickly, thus reducing the burden on the liver and kidneys. These wastes contain heavy metals that causes cancer, the lactic acid that increases fatigue and aging, fatty acids and fat beneath the skin, uranium Ions that cause high blood pressure and uric acid that causes aches.

    4. Stabilize acidity of the body.

    Far infrared Is able to cleanse blood, improve skin conditions, and prevent arthritis that is caused by excess uric acid. It stabilizes the acidity of the body and Increases immune system function.

    5. Moderate high and low blood pressure.

    Most high blood pressure patients encounter shoulder pain, headache, insomnia, blurry vision, tinnitus, nausea, etc., whereas most low blood pressure victims are weak and nervous, easy to get tired, have loss of appetite, coldness in arms and legs, dizziness, etc. High blood pressure and low blood pressure are two opposite illnesses. Experiments show using far infrared therapy can improve blood conditions, increase circulation and be able to adjust blood pressure in both conditions.

    6. About Diabetes

    If secretion of insufficient insulin occurs, glucose will not be utilized fully and will cause sugar to accumulate in the blood. In time, urine will contain sugar and this is known as diabetes . Diabetes is caused by the abnormal behavior of metabolism. Therefore, with the help of far infrared therapy, metabolism is increased. That helps to heal the damaged cells.

    7. About Cancer and far infrared

    Cancer cells are very weak against high temperatures with the help of far infrared’s penetration ability. Heat will not damage the surrounding healthy cells. Its temperature is able to damage the cancer cells. Glandular cancer cells will die at 38°C and 59% of tumors will die at 43°C. 

    8. Arthritis

    Besides unbearable pain, these conditions will also increase inflammation. Far infrared can improve blood circulation and get rid of blood clots. It also activates cells and reduces inflammation and pain and regains a healthy body.

    9. Body slimming

    Excessive water, salt and fat will be discharged from the body along with sweat. This is the case especially for fat, because it is dissolved in water more easily at 40°C and it is more likely to be discharged, therefore having a slimming effect. In 20 to 30 minutes of sauna use, the sweat produced is equivalent to running for 10,000 meters. It's incomparable to other short-term sports. For those who are unable to exercise, yet want to slim down, this is the ideal choice.

    10. Beauty

    Far infrared radiation on the skin stimulates skin cells and increases the secretion of nucleic acid, which increases the metabolism of the melanin function of white cells. Because the strengthening of cell reproduction and solid water prevents the growth of melanin, it reduces black spots. Increasing the resonance of skin tissue cells, can help to reproduce smoother skin. It repairs the fiber layer beneath the skin while solidifying the fat, increasing skin quality and achieving ultimate beauty. This type of treatment, when it comes from the inner body, is such that no other beauty product is able to produce the same result.

    Far infrared therapy was founded in1976 by Dr. Chui Quin Wei from Shanghai, China. He uncovered that far infrared can heal wounds from coldness and it spread to Japan in 1977. Led by Japan’s Yamazaki in collaboration many hospitals in Japan, they discovered that far infrared aids up to 50 different conditions. They are: burns, cancer, gastric, kidney and liver diseases, cystitis, prostatic hypertrophy, hemorrhoids, nocturnal enuresis, high and low blood pressure, side-effects of stroke, frozen shoulder, backache, asthma, respiratory disease, ear, nose and throat diseases, nerve pain, insomnia, anemia, skin diseases, effects of post accidents, mental disorders and body odor.

    CBD available directly - Cannabidiol aka CBD - a Legal Way to Get the Many Health Benefits of Cannabis such as Anti-seizure, Anti-inflammation, Anti-tumor, Antioxident, Antinausea

    What is CBD (Cannabidiol)?

    Hemp, unlike marijuana, is the major plant commercial source for CBD extracts. CBD is produced by the hemp plant in the form of a sticky resin produced in specialized glands located on young leaves, twigs and buds of the plant. The CBD-containing resin is a source of antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and numerous other protective molecules (that will be discussed) for the growth and reproductive functions of the plant.

    Happy Light - Light therapy lamp - Remedy the winter blues

    The Verilux Happy Light

    The sun in a lot of ways is wonderful for you but a lot of the time people don’t give the credit the sun deserves. It’s what generates so much life to this world. When you think of the sun today you think about the harm it can do to us personally. These two main rays the sun puts off that can hurt us are UVA which is long wave ultraviolet A and UVB short wave ultraviolet B. These two wave lengths the sun puts off can do a lot of negative things to our bodies such as age our skin faster, burn all the way to the dermis layer of our skin (which is the thickest layer of your skin), can usually burn the superficial layer of skin, are the main cause of skin cancer, can effect our eyes in ways that cause cataracts, lower your immune system, and takes away vitamin A in your skin (by the way cool fact that most people in the world are deficient in vitamin A). Yes these two rays are HORRIBLE for you! But, that’s not what this post is all about. it’s actually about the GOOD things the sun gives to us and how we can some how add them into our day to day life with out the sun! How Amazing is that!? Think about it, if you could some how take away these horrible ultraviolet rays and get just the good wave lengths of the sun, would you do it? it’s a no brainier, I know I would and DID!

    I’m sure your wondering what I’m talking about but before I announce this amazing product we have in our store I want to tell you a little about the background science of it so you can have a feel of how beneficial this thing can be in your life. First off lets talk about white light, what is white light? White light is electromagnetic radiation of all frequencies in the visible range of the light spectrum which puts of a “white appearance” to the eye. Now, what does this crazy white light do for us? Well, white light does a lot for us such as, it functions both as an antioxidant and an antitoxin, its a major defense system against illness and aging/ slows down the aging process, it detoxifies and improves liver function, strengthens the immune system, reduces the change of developing cancer, works to help improve mental functions, increase energy, improves concentration, improves heart and lung function, and can provide good oral hygiene. WOW, this light does a lot for you! How can one thing promote so much beneficial proprieties? Now to find something that can take this one light and put it into something we can have portable and able to have in our home or at work. THE VERILUX HAPPY LIGHT! Yes, this amazing lamp gives off nothing but white light! Right when you turn it on I personally feel this fluttery happy feeling in my chest as if I’m about to be excited about something. I almost feel the need to jump for joy with how much happiness this light gives me.

    The Happy Light simply works!

    At first I didn’t believe this thing worked, how can some random table lamp make you feel good and promote health in so many ways? When I saw this product it almost made me laugh and I immediately thought this was a scam, a placebo effect, a joke, lie, silly, stupid, out of this world, far fetch, I can go on with what my mind was thinking. So as you can probably tell I didn’t feel the need to buy this silly contraption but I kept having more and more people asking about them and saying how amazing they are. Me being a Manager in retail I’m of course nodding my head saying yea this is a great product I love it when I really think otherwise. So weeks, went by that turned into months and I have yet to feel the need or want to get one but the more people came in asking about it the more I was intrigued to figure out what was the cats meow about this lamp. I started asking around with friends I know that have used these lights and would swear by them and some friends have told me that the light can honestly be to much and make you feel too good, others say you have to get use to the brightness but its amazing. The silly thing about all of this is that I refused to try this light out this whole time! I never once opened a box to turn it on and see if it really worked. I guess I was just being to pessimistic and negative about it that I felt trying it out would be useless. If I’m going to be 100% honest with my customers about why I ended up with one of these things in my home its because of a small little life I have that needs these positive properties to keep it living. My sun conure lady bird is a little bird who if you don’t know anything about birds NEED a full spectrum bulb to be happy and healthy! So I thought “why not give this light a try since it is a full spectrum light”. I brought it home, turned it on, and those feelings I said in the begging of fluttery happy giddiness came threw me like a flash of lightning! I was kicked off my feet, blown away, amazed, dumb founded, astonished, this crazy happy light works!!!! I have never in my life had something give me so much joy so instantly that I almost couldn’t take it! The Happy Light by Verilux almost feels like your being forced to be in a good mood, it helps keep you awake if your feeling tired and its easy to sleep with it on in a big room.

    The light it gives off is so much nicer than the horrible yellow orange color normal bulbs give off. Normal lights tend to almost give me headaches also florescent lights tend to give me migraines behind my eyes but this light, I feel no negative affects from it even if I were to stare into it, although I wouldn’t want to because of how bright this thing is. It does have a high level and a low level but its not to big of a difference. The low level gives off not as much as a shine as the higher level does. I have a 5000 watt, its not that big, fits nicely in the corner of my desk and easily portable it lights up a 600 square feet room nicely and it can also be put in a smaller area and not feel like its to much, if it does to you It’ll take a few days of getting use to but its well worth it.

    From being a pessimistic person about the Verilux Happy Light and turning into an optimistic customer unexpectedly, I highly recommend this product to anyone that gets the winter blues, sits at a desk for 40 hours, have kids who get sick often, depressed or seem tired regularly, honestly this light is meant for you! Buy it, try it out, see how it changes your life like it did with mine!

    Eliminate the winter blues with the Happy Light!

    A powerful brain booster and mood enhancer. E3 Live Brain-On

    E3 Live Brain-On is live-frozen Blue Green Algae that also contains brain boosting extracts of Phenylethylamine and Phycocyanin which are already in the blue green algae but the added concentrate gives it a powerful effect. It has a double effect of enhancing cognition and improving mood at the same time. I really feel great after taking it. I remember when first I tried it, I was blown away by the double effect of mental clarity increase and an almost euphoric feeling it brings.



    Phenylethylamine HCL is a neurotransmitter and is used for brain stimulation, elevated mood, promoting feelings of wellbeing mental clarity, increased concentration and even weight loss because it is also a appetite supressent. Within the brain it causes the release of dopamine and norepinephrine, which contribute to sexual drive, mental attention and alertness. It can even lead to feeling euphoria and giddiness!

    Phenylethlamine has been referred to as the “love drug” because it is released by the brain when you feel love.

    It is considered an effective treatment for depression, attention deficit disorder(ADHD), and Parkinson’s disease. Phenylethylamine has also been used to treat arthritis and alcohol withdrawal.


    A blue colored protein found in Klamath blue green algae which gives E3 Live Brain-on it’s bluish tint. This powerful health building material helps the body to produce stem cells which can rejuvenate the body and speed healing.

    Phycocyanin also boosts the effects of Vitamin C and it is a powerful antioxidant. This contributes to its ability to protect the kidneys and liver from damage by toxins.
