At The Therapeutic Alternative, we are specialists in the care of the Lymphatic system. As such, we are big proponents of Dry Body Brushing. We offer Body Brushing treatments, encourage Body Brushing as part of self-care, and we carry a large selection of high quality body brushes imported from Germany.
Dry body Brushing helps improve venous blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. Dry brushing assists in the removal of toxins, exfoliates dead skin, reduces ingrown hairs, and bumpy skin. It can also help in reducing the effects of many skin conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis, and Acne. It leaves you feeling energized and your skin glowing. To achieve soft, smooth skin, it is recommended that you dry brush daily. Follow up dry brushing with a shower, and the application of light body oil or lotion.
We offer assorted brush styles and bristle firmness. Our brushes are not only practical, but attractive, and above all, are environmental friendly as well! We always give precedence to natural, sustainable raw materials when selecting our brushes.
Kishu Binchotan Charcoal
Made in the Kishu region of Japan since the Edo period, Binchotan charcoal is made by burning oak branches at extremely high temperatures (2300°F) for several days and then rapidly cooling them. This process of heating and cooling carbonizes the structure of the wood, leaving countless microscopic cavities that easily trap unwanted chemicals. Known as the highest quality of activated charcoal for purifying water, Binchotan charcoal can also be used to capture moisture and odors from the air, enhance blood circulation in a hot bath, stimulate healthy soil in the garden, or deflect negative ions in your home. Binchotan charcoal is a natural way to boost overall wellness! We offer a variety of high quality Binchotan Charcoal infused products by Morihata.

Big Dipper Wax Works
Beeswax, the purest of all candle waxes, is a product of the sustainable industry of beekeeping. The simple filtration of beeswax is a natural process that uses no chemicals and very little energy.
Beeswax is naturally aromatic, infused with the sweet, subtle scent of honey. Nontoxic and non-allergenic, beeswax candles burn clean and soot free. While burning, they release negative ions, just as seashores or rainstorms do. These negative ions improve air quality by eliminating pollutants and allergens from the air that we breathe.
The high melting and burning temperature of beeswax translate into exceptionally long burn times. While burning, their golden flames glow with the same energy and spectrum of light as the sun.
Beeswax candles are the ultimate in beauty and luxury. They are the natural choice for people who care about their health and the health of the environment.
All of our wicks are made of 100% cotton and have been primed with beeswax, not paraffin, which many other candle companies (even beeswax candle companies) use.

Far Infrared Light
FIR was discovered by NASA to be the safest, most beneficial light wave. It penetrates 6-8 inches into the innermost recesses of the body, stimulating healing and regeneration of nerves, and muscle tissue layers.
Negative Ions play a major role in keeping us healthy. When you think of negative ions, think of how you feel standing at the seashore or in front of a waterfall. These are places that put off high levels of negative ions. These ions provide energy to the human body. They make us healthier by purifying (alkalizing) the blood, reviving blood cells, increasing immunity, and control the balance in the Autonomic Nervous System.
The above two components are transferred through Amethyst Quartz channels which cover the entire BioMat’s surface. Amethyst Quartz is natures Super Conductor, scientifically found to offer the steadiest, most powerful delivery of healthy far infrared light waves, and the highest vibrational frequencies into the body. It is known to be a powerful detoxifier and produces naturally occurring far infrared waves.
