This band of light is not visible to human eyes but can be seen by special cameras that translate infrared into visible colors. The sun produces most of its energy in the infrared segment of the spectrum so that although you cannot see this energy, you can certainly feel its effects. Our bodies radiate infrared energy through the skin at 3 to 50 microns. Our palms emit infrared energy too, from 8 to 14 microns. Infrared energy penetrates tissues to a depth of over one centimeter. </div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="884" border="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td width="884" height="25">&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#999999" height="1"></td> </tr> <tr> <td height="25">&nbsp;</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="884" border="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="lei3" width="24">4.</td> <td class="lei3" width="860">Why Mandarin wood?</td> </tr> <tr> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td class="lei2"> <div align="justify">Wood vinegar can be extracted from all sorts of wood sources.

Patch-It is unique in that it uses Mandarin wood as the source of vinegar. This is because the vinegar extract was originally developed as a healthy tonic drink and Mandarin wood has an organic acid level of about 16% (compared typically to 6% in Bamboo and 10% in Oak or Cedar).</div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="884" border="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td width="884" height="25">&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#999999" height="1"></td> </tr> <tr> <td height="25">&nbsp;</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="884" border="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="lei3" width="24">5.</td> <td class="lei3" width="860">How does Patch-It<em> <font color="#61636a">&reg;</font> </em> work?</td> </tr> <tr> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td class="lei2"> <div align="justify">Patch-It<em> <font color="#61636a">&reg;</font> </em> has a dual action. These actions are &quot;stimulation and absorption&quot;. In traditional Chinese medicine, vinegar has &quot;warming&quot; and &quot;drawing&quot; properties. This characterization of the ingredient in traditional use can in turn be used to understand the dual action of the patch. It also explains the &quot;Spa-in-a-Patch&quot; idea where cleansing is one of the intended secondary benefits. Patch-It does not ease aches and pains by means of heat (such as in a sauna). This is not like a chili plaster or the usual &quot;deep heat&quot; idea. Instead it uses far infrared to stimulate the reflex points on the soles of the feet. By so doing, the product can support natural whole body circulation. The other way of observing Patch-It<em> <font color="#61636a">&reg;'s </font> </em>effect is by reference to tests using a thermal imaging camera. In this instance, a specialized instrument called a thermograph is used and this device allows for observation of temperature changes due to the presence of the patch on the soles of the feet. What Patch-It does is to encourage &quot;self-healing&quot; by promoting improved circulation. Patch-It<em> <font color="#61636a">&reg;</font> </em> does not heal or cure anything by putting an active ingredient into the body. When you cut yourself and the doctor puts stitches in, the stitch does not heal the wound - your body closes up the wound and the stitches simply allow time for your body to get the job done. Muscular aches and pains that result from poor circulation will ease up. </div> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="884" border="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td width="884" height="25">&nbsp;</td> </tr> <tr> <td bgcolor="#999999" height="1"></td> </tr> <tr> <td height="25">&nbsp;</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <table cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="884" border="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td class="lei3" width="24">6.</td> <td class="lei3" width="860">How does Patch-It help your body cleanse?</td> </tr> <tr> <td>&nbsp;</td> <td class="lei2"> <div align="justify">Improved circulation should mean better overall cleansing through all normal body channels such as sweat and urine.

Another way to view this is to relate to the experience of those who have tried acupressure on the feet. It hurts a lot during the massage but recovery afterwards is promoted. Continue using the patches for few more days and the discomfort should lessen and may eventually subside entirely.
