Massage Benefits

The Abaton Infrared Massage Bed combines the proven healing powers of massage with the known benefits of Moxibustion and Infrared therapy.


Neuromuscular Massage

Massage has been one of the oldest and most effective forms of healing in the history of medicine. There are a number of documented mechanisms of healing that are imparted by Neuromuscular Massage. Massage can be integrated with almost any other healing therapy, as it is non-invasive and has no known negative side effects when done properly.


Increased Circulation

One of the key benefits of massage is the increasing of circulation and nutrition to nerve and muscle fibres. With proper circulation comes oxygen, glucose, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which nourish and detoxify the cells of the muscles, tendons, connective tissue and nerves. This process of cleansing and nourishing is important to the smooth and efficient functioning of the muscle fibre, and the proper transmission of messages by nerve cells. Muscle activity requires clean energy production, which requires chemical reactions that transform glucose, fats or proteins into energy. When this energy is produced there are a number of byproducts, that, if the cells are properly nourished, will be transformed either to other useable chemicals, or escorted to the liver for transformation or excretion out of the body.



Moxibustion is the use of heat on acupressure points. It has long been established that acupuncture and acupressure can help with a myriad of different conditions. Medical historians believe the moxibustion even predates acupuncture as a form of healing. Moxibustion has been shown to help relieve muscle pains, metabolism, immunity and to stimulate a rich flow of oxygen and nutrient supply to the bodies organs. The Abaton Hybrid far infrared massage bed uses heated jade rollers to create moxibustion.
