The 5 Onnetsu fundamentals

This Japanese Therapy is based on Five Truths that are intertwined with each other…


1) NASA’s findings regarding Far Infrared (FIR) Solar Energy Vibration

In the 1960s, NASA commented on the FIR Solar vibrations by explaining that all living entities on this planet receive specific solar energy vibrations in order to sustain life. NASA commented that this range of vibration (8 -14 microns) exists within the infrared spectrum (0.76 to 1,000 microns of vibration), which is between visible light and the microwave range. This narrow range of FIR vibration is the only solar energy ray that promotes life. When it is received, FIR Solar Energy vibrates within cells thus synchronizing water molecules, and promotes the maintenance of healthy cells and improve the condition of unhealthy cells.

After NASA’s announcement, and after many years of subsequent research, a number of Japanese scientists have succeeded in making an object, which emits this range of vibration even without sun. The FIR Ceramic was created from a number of minerals and stones mixed together in certain proportions and baked at precise temperatures. Many new concepts of healthy goods were developed in Japan from this FIR Ceramic such as heaters, threads, clothes, knitted goods, saunas, mattresses, blankets, underwear garments, and cook wear etc. This FIR ceramic penetrates deep inside and heats from the inside-out rather than from the outside-in To this day, NASA uses this FIR in space ships, rockets, etc.
Tomeko Mitsui, a holistic natural healer, made the first FIR Ceramic therapeutic device in l985 by recognizing that it can have a similar effect on our body as that of Moxibustion.

Dr. Kazuko Tatsumura has introduced the therapy to USA and the world in 1995, improved the method of Onnetsu Therapy. She invented a new Onnetsuki device in 2009 adding minerals, such as Titanium, Tourmaline, Geranium, and Terahertz, thus enabling the Heat and FIR penetrations to be deeper, and faster into the body, and easement of pain quicker. Dr. Kazuko has helped over 12,000 patients of various illnesses since 1995.


2) Body Temperature

The most important theory of Japanese health and healing is that inner body temperature must be kept up to 36.5-37℃ (98.6℉) in order to be healthy. Any cells and tissues that are unhealthy or injured are deprived from body heat. Therefore, they become cold in that area or organs than other parts of the body and this coldness shows up on the skin above..
Cold energy of cells shows up on the skin above as cold in temperature, and skin feels much HOTTER there than other areas when Onnetsuki is applied.
The Japanese concept is that any areas of illness or disorder are colder than other part of the body. Also any part of the body, if constantly kept cold, become unhealthy or ill. In order to have any healing, this part has to become warmer. Healing will happen when the body temperature of that area becomes higher and be maintained. We apply Onnetsuki on that cold area and simply warm it up. One can ease pains and discomfort and recover health. That is why you have to maintain body temperature. Do you know Cancer cells die at 42℃ (109℉) and strive at 35℃ (95℉)? Immunity also suffers 50% if body is one degree lower.

Exposing the inner body to heat has been traditional therapies of Japan for thousands of years. One of the most effective is the modality of Moxibustion. Moxibustion originally came from China, but flourished more in Japan. Moxa is made of Mugwort herbs, dried a long time under the sun, thus receiving powerful FIR energy. The herb is made into small balls and placed onto the skin above unhealthy, cold areas. Then the ball of herbs is fired and burned. It makes smokes and smells like marijuana. It heats the skin, and sends medicinal energy and FIR vibration deep into the body, warming up specific points inside. The Japanese have for long time treated illnesses by burning the Moxa. The most famous example is Dr. Shimetaro’ Hara‘s practice on incurable illnesses, especially on tuberculosis..

Japanese have many methods in daily lives for warming up and maintaining inner body temperature for example, taking hot baths daily, drinking warm tea often, warming the feet and ankles (rather than heads). In the West, however, we take showers more often than bath. To take a therapeutic warm bath with ginger, or Epsom Salt could reduce the epidemic of prostate cancer, or female problems such as fibroid tumors. The stress also contributes to lower body temperature, especially in the lower extremities. All heat and stress energy accumulate mostly in the upper body.


3) Balancing of Autonomic Nervous System

Sympatric Nervous System (SNS) and Para sympathetic Nervous System (PNS) in the Autonomic Nervous Systems must be balanced. Dr. Toru Abo, the famous immunologist proved and scientifically documented that, unless these two systems are balanced, the nature of white blood cells changes and immunity suffers. In our daily life, to balance SNS and PNS is difficult, except by meditations, breathing exercise and proper diet of Yin and Yang balance The Onnetsu Therapy can accomplish this We slide the Onnetsuki up and down on the spine warming up the spine. This is simple but effective way to boost immunity improving most health problems, and maintaining health.


4) Three Smooth flow in the body; Blood, Lymph, and Ki (chi )flow

Onnetsu Therapy promotes three flow in the body: blood, lymph, and Ki These energies converge in the center back of the body, and in the center front of the body. These two channels are like major rivers in our body giving important currents of all three flow. Onnetsu deals with this current by treating this flow on the spine, the front abdominal area and the upper chest. Blood, Lymph and Ki(Chi ) flow are also helped by sliding the Onnetsuki according to the proper directions of Meridians. We warm up cold spots to heal, but the device also clears blood stasis. All three major current will then flow smoothly and fluidly, like water in the river without stagnated areas or hindrances. Onnetsuki cleans vessels and veins; spider web veins can be quickly eliminated.


5) Five Elements Theories; relationship of organs.

In the concept of Acupuncture, our major Ten Organs are paired into Five Yin and Yang Organs. Onnetsu helps to balance them. In addition, each Five Paired Organs are in constant circle of Ki energy flow in relationship to each other. Onnetsu helps unhealthy organs by also supporting related organs.

Five Major Paired Organs are: liver/gallbladder → heart/small intestine → spleen/stomach → spleen/stomach → lung/large intestine → kidney/bladder and goes back to liver/gallbladder
