Japanese Onnetsu Therapy


Ancient Japanese Principles of Moxibustion Combined with NASA's Modern Far Infrared Technology For Autoimmune Health

Hippocrates said: “Those who cannot be cured by medicine can be cured by surgery. Those that cannot be cured by surgery can be cured by heat. Those who cannot be cured by heat must be considered incurable. ” 

Many studies show exceptional results can be achieved by applying the correct amount of heat to the body (hyperthermia).

Principal Theory of Onnetsu Therapy

The principal theory of ONNETSU Therapy comes from an old Japanese belief that unhealthy body cells are deprived of heat and energy and are therefore cold—colder than healthy cells—and constantly shoot cold energy out from the inside, toward the skin surface. 

Onnetsu therapy was born from this concept, which began in 1998, created by the late Japanese Doctor Madam Tomeko Mitsui. By using ONNETSU Therapy, cells are warmed with far-infared rays, improving the natural healing ability of the human body, strengthening the immune system, and restoring the body’s heat. This is the fundamental principle of Onnetsu Therapy.

Dr Mitsui used the Onnetsuki to treat thousands of chronic patients in her clinic. Many were cancer patients as well as those suffering from severe chronic disease. 

While treating these patients, she documented her observations carefully, noting the common characteristics such as “hot spots” and effective treatment areas. Years later, she published those clinical observations in her book “Overcoming Cancer and Other Diseases in a Holistic Way.”

How Onnetsu Therapy Works

Onnetsu means “comfortable heat” in Japanese. Onnetsu therapy works using Far Infrared Rays. These rays, discovered by NASA, are used in concert with the effect of ancient traditional Japanese moxibustion. Onnetsu treats at the cellular level, based on the premise that unhealthy cells are cold and lack energy. 

Using a platinum Onnetsuki, a handheld device which utilizes a microprocessor-controlled assembly having a heater and a ceramic plate.

The Onnetsu thermotherapy searches for cold spots deep inside our body and applies a far-infrared wavelength of 8-10 microns with a terahertz frequency vibration.

Healing will occur when the body temperature of the treated area becomes maintaned at a higher level.

 By restoring the heat inside the body, it strengthens the immune system and resists the onset of disease, and may reverse the effects of certain diseases.

Effects of Far-Infrared Heat Therapy

When applied to the surface of the skin, the Onnetsu device increases blood circulation and oxygen supply to damaged tissues, promotes relaxation and comfort, induces sleep, Improves immune response, cellular regeneration, detoxifies, and relieves stress. 

Because Onnetsu Therapy Restores And Strengthens One’s Own Healing Power Naturally, It Is Beneficial In All Diseases And Chronic Health Problems Without Side Effects.

Far Infrared Rays are invisible and Onnetsu Therapy is completely harmless and non-invasive as it provides vibrations and heat to promote balance. Patient’s enjoy moxibustion without the smell or smoke and the benefits of acupuncture — without the needles. Treatments are cumulative and encourage blood, oxygen, lymph and Qi flow to ensure a balance between yin and yang organs according to the concepts of Oriental Traditional Medicine.

How We Apply Treatment at Atlantic Acupuncture

The patient is given a robe to wear. The practitioner starts by applying the treatment to the sides of the spine to balance the autonomic nervous system using the Japanese hand held onnetsuki medical device on acupuncture points. 

We refer to this as OFT Onnetsu foundation treatment. Every session will begin with a foundation treatment. We cannot hope to boost the immune system without first balancing the autonomic nervous system.

The onnetsuki wand has the property of FIR heat and Terahertz waves, which are sub-millimetric waves used to balance the autonomic nervous system. 

During this process, the patient provides feedback to the therapist, indicating how long they can tolerate the heat on each point. Then individual areas are treated and targeted based on each patient’s individual needs.
