Nature, Nature, Nature
– by guest blogger Dave Balzer
All Nikken technologies are based on our natural world. Whether it’s magnetic energy, far-infrared or negative-ion technology, Nikken has been watching nature closely and developing ways to reap its benefits for you.
There is nothing more natural than magnetism. Basically, the Earth itself is a huge dipole magnet that transfers its energy flow to every living being on the planet. This flow of energy forms a shield over the globe known as the magnetosphere. The magnetosphere protects the surface of the planet from harmful solar radiation. The shield itself essentially acts like a filter that allows biocompatible light energy to pass through. Without the protection provided by Earth’s magnetic flux, life as we know it would be destroyed.
Many animals are able to feel the Earth’s magnetic field. This applies to birds, insects, but also plants and even humans. All living things that react to Earth’s magnetic energy possess a protein known as cryptochrome. It is this molecule that reacts to magnetic energy. Unfortunately, NASA has reported that Earth’s magnetic field is weakening and even developing irregularities. Nikken has chosen to use dipole permanent magnets in many of its products to slow down and counteract the degradation of Earth’s natural magnetic energy.
The energy of the sun reaching the surface of our planet is composed of visible, ultraviolet and infrared light. The visible wavelengths of light are those that man can perceive with his eyes. They account for 40% of the light energy that reaches the Earth’s surface. Ultraviolet light cannot be seen by mammals and accounts for 7% of total radiation. This means that infrared light energy accounts for 53% of the solar energy that reaches the earth’s surface. Infrared light is fundamental to human life. The tissues and cells in the body are tuned to the infrared energy. They absorb, use and even emit infrared energy.
Nikken manufactures several products that contain special reflective ceramic fibers. These fibers are able to absorb light energy and reflect it back to the user as infrared energy. As a result, Nikken is able to support and balance the natural far-infrared energy in the environment.
Negative ions are all around us. Nature holds them in abundance in the forests and near waterfalls. They are a key element for the well-being and relaxation experienced during a walk in nature. It sounds like irony, but negative ions have a positive impact on well-being, while positive ions do the opposite. Household appliances, electronics, and other home furnishings in the city give off positive ions and can cause fatigue and depression. Consequently, the environment must be enriched with new sources of negative ions to compensate for the poor effects of the positive ions.
Some examples of Nikken magnetic products with the patented DynaFlux® magnet technology are the Kenko mSteps and mStrides insoles and the KenkoTouch®handheld massager. Reflective ceramic fibers can be found in all Kenko Sleep products such as the KenkoDream® blanket and the Naturalst® pillow.
Our guest blogger Dave Balzer is a technology consultant and international consultant in the areas of product development, design engineering, prototyping, manufacturing and regulatory compliance for new equipment. In the last three decades he has worked with Nikken on many projects gearThat is what we are against. Since 2012, he has been running his own medical technology company, which manufactures special diagnostic kits.
Most people who are considering getting a waterbed often do so because of their well-being.
You want comfort for your back – better to fall asleep and sleep through. They promise more luxury – because a night’s sleep is unfortunately an unfulfilled dream for millions of people.
very high acquisition costs and time:
depending on the quality, the costs are very high, for this there is often a long shelf life as thanks (with proper care).
The effort involved in setting up takes a lot of time.
A waterbed doesn’t even stand like that. 2-3 hours you should plan for at least the set-up and filling, plus the waiting time until the water is warm. That can take another 24 hours. It is important to note that the hoses are also cleaned during filling, so that no bacteria and dirt enter the water chamber. Otherwise it could start to mold.
– Daily electricity costs:since waterbeds are heated so as not to cool down, the bed needs electricity and permanently: energy and money. Depending on the installed heating system, there are also different daily costs
– Maintenance costs: Not only are electricity costs incurred, but the water inside also needs care – this is not unusual with the pool ;-)
Nobody wants the water in their bed to tip over and it starts to smell or algae start to form. .. Your bed or water needs care products on a regular basis. The shell in which the water is located should also be regularly maintained with special means. That takes time.
– heavy weight: up to 800 kg weighs a waterbed. When changing the water must be drained beforehand (pump or external company) and before such a bed is placed, one should check your insurance and know the load capacity of the floor.
– Non-breathable: Due to the lower bed, the moisture cannot escape down over the mattress, but upwards.
– increased sweating
If a bed is not breathing, it is almost pre-programmed to sweat. Sweating always causes restless sleep. You are taken out of your important sleep phases. So if you are already a nocturnal sweater one way or another, it is doubly worth considering how useful it is to buy a waterbed.
– simple disadjusting not possible; as with the weight ;-)
– difficult to get up from the water cave: the waterbed is held by a fixed frame. Water has the habit that if you want to sit down for example, the heaviest part,in this case, the buttocks, “down” hangs. The legs then hang on one side from the bed, the butt lies in the waterbed. Especially elderly people, people with a stressed back,who want one way or another little strain, have it not easy to get out of bed in the morning. The dressing in the bed or on the edge of the bed is also eliminated.
– turning around at night is harder : A waterbed does not support. Always the heaviest body parts are down. Turning around is much harder than in a bed with a supporting mattress. Many believe that turning at night is important and good for the body or spine. In the deep sleep phases, we don’t even get to know how often we actually turn. This natural turning is not to be confused with the nightly rolling back and forth due to poor sleep. This can be avoided by the right sleeping environment.
– Environmental aspect: electricity / electrosmog
With a waterbed? It makes the sum. People are consuming more and more energy, using more and more energy … In order for us to have these energies available in the form of electricity, huge quantities of fossil fuels are burned. This is detrimental to the environment.
no support of the body: the wonderful floating feeling deceives over time, because your body also wants to be supported. Even if you initially think that the spine is being relieved, the opposite is the case. The strong sinking can strain the spine and also hinder the important rotation.
Since as described above always the heaviest body parts sink down, one usually lies like in a hammock. In the long run, this is precisely the attitude that we are trying to avoid.
Due to heat:
If you want a waterbed because it freezes, there are great alternatives: warming bedding, dehumidified, warmed rooms, blankets that use the far infrared technologies (neither freezing nor sweating!) , warm nightwear and also hot water bottles.
The magnetic mattress pads transform their current sleeping environment into a luxurious relaxation oasisin no time. Due to the balanced degree of hardness, a stabilizing “egg shell structure” layer and a precise support as well as technological (magnetic energy) on the state of the art,your body weight can be optimally distributed on the entire latex lying surface and your back as well as your general well-being weigh in balance. In addition, you can choose with the appropriate Pillow under the Duvet with long-range infrared technology.
A good day starts the night before.
We wish you a relaxing, quiet night!
known today as magduo – is a small, compact and easy-to-use massage scooter.
It is used a lot for self-massage and for massage on others.
He gets a lot of attention in the book of EmotionsCode or EmotionCode by Dr. Bradley Nelson.
There, the magduo is used for self-treatment in order to free itself from negative emotions.
Enclosed emotions can affect the flow of energy. This can create all sorts of challenges:
A highly exciting topic.
Either certified EmotionCode therapists perform the resolution or, if you have enough background knowledge, you can find out by self-testing which emotions can be resolved.
The magduo of Nikken and a table from the EmotionCode as well as the ability to perform a kinesiological muscle test serve as an aid.
You ask your or someone else’s body with special questions using the kinesiological muscle test (“Is the emotion in column A?” When answering no, you know it’s column B. Another question would be: “Is the emotion in line 1?” Test again for Yes or No. You test until you find the emotion. )
Now that you have identified the corresponding emotion using the emotion code table, you roll down the spine about 10 times with the magnet.
I would like to stress that I have explained the method in extreme short form and this is only for illustrative purposes.
Certified therapists offer training to EmotionsCode therapists as well as EmotionsCode seminarsin which you can learn exactly how to practice and use the appropriate tools on how to use the Magduo.
Among other things, it deals with the exciting topics of how to dissolve emotions of the heart wall, what spectacular effects the applications have and how to help oneanother and others to easily free oneanother from fixed emotions.
The Book on EmotionsCode is translated into many languages.
The magnet, which is often purchased for EmotionsCode treatment, can be found here:
While the degree of magnetic coverage is an important factor in magnetic products, it is not the only feature that makes Nikken magnetic technology superior.
As with all Nikken magnetic products, a superior product is created from the right combination of comfort, Gauss strength and technical design in addition to the degree of magnetic coverage. Nikken offers the ideal combination for active products such as the Insoles, as well as the magnetic pads and support bandages.
Nikken has taken a giant step forward in its development of magnetic inserts and designed these products so that they can be used at any opportunity.
With our advanced DynaFlux® technology
Exclusive DynaFlux® magnetic voltage technology with 800-1,000 gauss
Durable, lightweight and air-permeable materials
Negative ion and long-infrared technology
The Nikken mStrides are our latest innovation in a product line that goes back to our KenkoInsoles® introduced in 1975. They take advantage of the advanced DynaFlux® magnetic technology that increases field complexity through opposite polarities. In addition, they offer a certain degree of dynamic field variability, which is due to the fact that each magnet has a precisely controlled freedom of movement at every step you take.
In motion, DynaFlux® magnetic technology generates an active or dynamic magnetic field with 100-strong magnetic coverage and a greater depth effect.
The soles are designed for active people and are made of a soft, durable material. These insoles also use the long-range infrared technology developed for temperature regulation – an important aspect of any sports shoe! The mStrides have a Gauss strength of about 800-1000.
yes. Great product, very good experiences, eternally durable. Hygienic and noticeable difference.
Nikken soles are the very first product nikken launched on the wellness market in 1975, revolutionizing it. To this day, for good reason, one of the most popular products.
Step by Step towards well-being :-)
Have you ever experienced a rollout? Yes? Then you know of the amazing, wonderfully relaxing experience I write.
no? Then you have to give yourself one. This wonderful massage enables people to experience what it feels like to wake up after a restful night’s sleep on the Nikken sleep system.
The rollout is used by many wellness consultants to show how you can feel after a deep sleep. Meanwhile, this massage tool uses many, many therapists supporting coaches for their work.
1. Make sure your partner takes off larger trinkets and, if available, the belt to avoid inconvenience. Find a cheap spot on the floor or couch and spread out the Kenko Pad.
2. Ask your partner to put their face down on the demo pad, their arms resting by his side. He should rest with his forehead on the Naturest pillow or put his head sideways directly on the pad.
3. Next, you determine the three important points on the back:
4. Start your application by holding the MagCreator with both hands and rolling from point 1 at the top of the spine to point 3. Be gentle,but determined. Repeat this movement slowly, gliding and evenly 15 times. The slower the movement, the more effective the results. In the beginning you should only work with the natural weight of the MagCreator without exerting a lot of pressure.
5. Ask your partner for feedback and increase the pressure down only to the extent that it feels good for him. Role 15 times from point 1 to point 3.
6. Next, the MagCreator rolls up a quarter turn from point 3 to point 2, gently but surely pushing down. Perform this movement synchronously with your partner’s relaxed breathing rhythm.
7. Roll 20 times gently up and down the back from point 3 to point 2.
8. Repeat section 6, but this time from point 2 to point 1.
9. Roll 20 times gently up and down the back from point 2 to point 1.
10. Once you’ve completed Sections 4 through 9, repeat the entire process twice, making sure to get feedback from your partner after each complete rollout.
11. Finally, perform a roll 15 times from point 1 to point 3.
12. Cover your partner now with the Naturest blanket,and let the massage power of the MagCreator work for some time. Ask your partner to turn around and give him some time to rest on the pad and pillow so that he can feel the relaxation and comfort.
With the Magcreator you can also perform a full body massage from the comfort of your home.
Here you can read more about sleep in the magnetic field cocoon.
Magnets were discovered independently of ancient cultures in China, Egypt and Greece.
They discovered that magnetite (the magnetic iron stone) attracted iron and always pointed in a north-south direction when rotated freely. The first mention of magnetism can be found in the “Book of the Yellow Emperor on Internal Medicine”, which dates backto 2000 BC.
Until 1200 BC, the properties of magnetite were used in China and Europe in a wide range of ways in navigation, construction and healing.
The Greek poet Homer referred to magnetite in his works around the 9th century BC.
The Greek physicians Hippocrates (460-377 BC) and Aristotle (384-322 BC) described the benefits of magnetite in their writings and Cleopatra (69-30 BC) she is said to have worn a magnetite on her foreheadbecause she believed that its properties worked against aging.
Galen (130-200 A.D.), the Greek physician who concretized the work of those who represented the foundations of modern medicine, refers in his works to magnetism.
The Persian physician Ali Abbas (930-994 A.D.) describes the use of magnets in his “Royal Book” – a publication that was to be used by doctors for the next 100 years.
In the late 13th century, the French scientist Petrus Peregrinus de Maricourt (1220-1270) recorded the magnetic field of a magnetic iron stone with the help of a compass and reported on his findings in the “Epistola de Magnete”(Letters on Magnetism).
The Swiss physician and alchemist Paracelsus (1493-1543) promoted the use of magnets throughout Europe.
The English scientist William Gilbert (1544-1603) was the court physician of Queen Elizabeth I and wrote six volumes entitled “De Magnete” (About the Magnet). In his work, Gilbert made the astonishing claim that the Earth is a gigantic spherical magnet with north and south poles.
In this section of history, significant new lands were discovered and many battles were won at sea. It is therefore no coincidence that scientists were very stunned in the 17th century when they noticed that the direction of the compass needle was slowly shifting for decades.
Edmund Halley (1656-1742), an English astronomer famous for his theory on the orbits of comets, suspected that the Earth consists of layers, each of which is independently magnetized and slowly rotates in conjunction with the others.
The Austrian physicist Franz Mesmer (1734-1815) claimed that“all bodies are magnets capable of communicating this magnetic principle”. His theories made the use of magnets popular in therapeutic medicine of the 18th century.
In 1795, the American physician Elisha Perkins was awarded a US patent for a magnetic apparatus, which he had developed for use in humans and horses.
The Danish physicist Hans Christian Oersted (1777-1851) was the first to discover in 1820 that electricity and magnetism are related. Oersted confirmed Gilbert’s theories on the subject and laid the foundations for the more complex developments on electromagnetism of the French scientist André Marie Ampere (1775-1836).
The English physicist Michael Faraday (1791-1867) was the first to start interpreting the theories of Oersted and Ampere and used his knowledge to build the first electric motor. This was to lead to a variety of inventions that changed the modern world, from hydroelectric power plants to modest washing machines.
the German researcher Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) – who is named as one of the founders of modern geography – beat his German colleague and one of the greatest mathematicians of his time, Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777-1855) at about the same time to use his talent to solve the riddles of magnetism. Until this time, only the direction of magnetic force had been measured. Gauss found a method that allowed him to measure the magnetic strength using another magnet he used.
In 1886, the American physician C.J. Thacher advertised a range of magnetic garments in his catalogue. Around the same time, the American Robert Bartholow made some interesting observations on magnets placed directly on the skin,and noted them in his book “Medical Electricity”.
In 1929, the Japanese geophysicist Motonori Matuyama (1884-1958) made an important discovery when he examined the traces of the Earth’s magnetic field in volcanic rock. He concluded that the Earth’s magnetic field must have reversed its polarity several times over the past two million years.
In 1976, the Japanese physician Kyoichi Nakagawa, based on his research on the consequences of modern life, developed a theory that he called “magnetic field deficiency syndrome”.
In the course of the 20th century, new and stronger magnets were developed, including rare earth metal magnets in the 70s and 80s. These new magnets are important for the technology and industrial sectors and spark new interest in the use of magnets in the areas of comfort and support.
In 1997, Dr. Carlos Vallbona conducted a study of magnets at the Baylor Institute of Rehabilitation Research, known as the Baylor Study.
In 2003, Nikken launched the PalmMag™ — a revolutionary product using a new type of magnetic technology called two-axis magnetic rotation.
This is followed by many further advances in the development of magnetic technology at NIKKEN as well as its conversion into products for everyday use.
When I became a mother, it was a matter of course for us that our son would also enjoy the sleeping system from the very beginning. We had a little cradle for him at the beginning. The Nikken sleep system is available in many sizes but in very mini there was not yet ;-) So we have a mattress that we had left, appropriately cut.
From his first day at home, he slept in the cradle or in our bed on the mattress of NIKKEN. From the beginning, it was surrounded by the magnetic products. Our son has always slept well and especially for a long time. We never had a topic with sleep, even with our 2nd child.
There was the filtered water in the vial.
When they both got their first shoes, other Nikken products moved into their lives and their first magnetic soles were added to Gr. 19-21 cropped :-) Mini small, totally sweet and 100 grounded.
My older son was a little older than 1 year when he started walking free and alone. In the spring, he scuritmed through our garden over our hill. He fell and fell very unhappy. Since he could no longer perform, we went to the hospital. According to the X-rays, no clear fracture was detected. However, the doctor wanted to gips the leg.
We were not particularly pleased about this. We had no clear result, a break was ruled out. Maybe a crack/a fracture.
His 2nd suggestion was that we could try to keep the leg calm, but with a 1-year-old child he did not see it as a success.
We know our son and everything in me resisted this plaster. That would mean that after weeks he could only run again when he had just started. We refused, put the Super Mini in our sock at home and occupied him for almost 3 days with a lot of reading, cuddling and walking in the buggy – all accompanied by the Super Mini in the stocking.
On the 3rd day it grabbed our son and he really wanted to move. He actually drove Bobbycar. We had an unbelievably bad conscience: we had to keep him quiet for weeks. But he drove without pain and rolled off his foot as normal. (as normal as it is for a beginner in the race). Nevertheless, we went to our friendly orthopedist, who confirmed to us that such young children would have a very natural feeling and if there was still any impairment there, he would not drive Bobbycar. He was quite amazed that his accident was only 3 days ago. We too, but from the day on I had had another beautiful experience with magnetic products.
Furthermore, the Magflex helped me wonderfully with my constant back pain during the pregnancy and she was my constant companion after the births.
I had 2 unplanned caesarean sections, each with a gr. Scar as a reminder. The MagFlex helped me to make the wound healing extremely fast and that I was able to go to the hospital again the next day.
During my pregnancy I use the insoles every day and of course I still slept on the mattress. For me, it was a boon. (Nikken recommends that the products should not be used during pregnancy due to the magnets).
Another “favourite product” for my children is the scarf. Whenever a cold crept in with a cough, I wrapped my children’s neck and chest with it. A long-range infrared thread is spun in the scarf, reflecting the body’s warmth. This helped incredibly well that they recovered quickly.
Nikken’s wide range of products has been with my children for 14 years now. For them, they are “anyway” products. It is normal for them to lie on the requirement to have the soles in their shoes, to drink the water and also to use the MagFlex or the sleep mask on occasion. The powerchip always sticks to the refrigerator at hand, in case anyone has something. Especially due to sports-related injuries, which unfortunately now sometimes arise, the combination powerchip with a bandage has become a good support for them.
Our children are healthy almost all year round and sneak in a (sports) injury, we have natural remedies at hand that allow us to recover quickly.
What experience have you or your children had with NIKKEN products?
Again and again, we are asked about the difference between the magduo and the magboy.
The magboy is the predecessor model of the magduo. The magduo is the same in handling. He is the much
The Magduo uses Dynaflux® magnetic technology. Dynaflux® magnetic technology ensures uniform, consistently intense magnetic coverage. Dynaflux® is based on a specific arrangement of several single magnets – that is, positive poles meet positive and negative poles meet negative ones. This creates a dynamic, three-dimensional energy field when the Kenko MagDuo is rolled over the body for the massage.
The magnetic roller consists of two rotating balls, which are provided with massage knobs.
The balls sit in a kind of box, which serves as a casing for the balls when massaging.
So you can massage body parts individually and selectively, or if both balls are anchored in the case, they can be rolled over the body together with ease.
A soothing roll massage that can be carried out quickly and always and everywhere.
In addition, you can close the case with a lid so that your massager remains clean and easy to transport.
It is common knowledge that a massage can provide relief if tense muscles and stress are created.
You get the magduo in the shop www.wellnesshome.24.de
We are passionate golfers. Our whole family. Often we spend our time together on the golf course.
We pack everything important for the round of golf:
Of course, there must also be plenty of golf balls, tea and maker as well as the glove. Golfcap, towel, sturdy golf shoes and rain or umbrella is a matter of course.
As you can read, this is a lot of equipment – for a golfer his “quite normal stuff”. Those who travel 4-6 hours on the golf course should be well prepared.
Our golf game is solid that game our kids outstanding (was clear or ;-) ). We have been using Nikken products for 21 years, but they have never consciously used them in sports. An acquaintance spoke to us and was horrified why we miss “the good results” when we forgo the Nikken products while playing golf.
We all tried it out on the next round and, although we have of course already had many personal experiences with the most diverse products from Nikken, we were amazed again on this day about the great effect of the products:
Our balls fly much further.
All golfers know the challenge of the low during the round, from being completely exhausted after the round (not only mentally but also physically). The treatment of physiotherapists, warm baths, massages on arms and calves have been snow since the integration of the 3 products of yesterday.
We can be completely painless after the round and really recovered.
Just try it out. It is as simple and easy as drinking coffee.
1.) Put soles in your shoes once and leave them there – they work for you all by yourself while you walk across the square :-)
2.) magduo into the golf bag and roll briefly just before the blow – easy and fast
3.) Water you pack anyway to drink it: at the Sportsbottle you don’t even have to go to the supermarket anymore. Do yourself the favor and drink clean water and take a sip after sip with energy.
Playing golf can be so easy ;-)
I am not a physician and I cannot judge this.
Our experience is that we have never had inflammation in the arm, shoulder or elbow area or tendons due to the many (permanent) loads and we never had any problems to tackle the racket firmly. Only once when my son hit the ground with full force and not the ball ( above ) : He had hellish pain and had to cancel the tournament because he was not in physical condition to hit a ball. We wrapped his wrist in the wrist bandage and put the SuperMini between the wrist and bandage – all fixed so that the wrist or fingers are not moving and the “package” is spared for 2 weeks over the holidays. After that he could start again without any problems and play us pain-free.
And if you’re not sure:Go to the sports doctor and check it out.
… and now off on the pitch and enjoy life and no longer wonder how you get more power in your game every time you hit. You have just read the solution. :-)
