Filtering by Category: Technologies

Indoor Air Pollution - among the top five environmental health risks says the EPA


NIKKEN is a total wellness company – the only total wellness company.  This means we have products that contribute to the body’s wellness in everything from supplements for nutrition to magnets for reduction of discomfort to filters for healthier water and air.  There is no other company like NIKKEN! 

We all know the body needs certain nutrients to thrive.  We also know that by using our amazing magnetic technology and the far-infrared and negative ion technology we can reduce discomfort and aid the body’s natural healing tendencies.  Most of us have even felt the energizing and helpful qualities of NIKKEN’s PiMag water but one of the most overlooked of NIKKEN’s products is the KenkoAir Purifier™.

On May 25th 2015, a study was published by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology stating that “air purification is significantly associated with decreases in geometric means of several circulating inflammatory and thrombogenic biomarkers, as well as a decreases in systolic blood pressure (BP), diastolic BP.”(1)  Translation – an air purifier can help with a risk of coronary artery disease and help to lower blood pressure – both top and bottom numbers.

NIKKEN’s ULPA filtration system is unparalleled. It “combines multistage filtration (including a state-of-the-art ULPA filter), negative-ion generation and a unique system that operates without producing ozone, a toxic gas that is an unfortunate byproduct of other air systems.” (2)  ULPA filters are a higher grade of air filtration than the commonly used HEPA filters. 

“High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) = 99.97% of particles 0.3 micrometers or greater are removed by the air filter.

Ultra Low Penetration Air (ULPA) = 99.999% of particles 0.12 micrometers or greater are removed by the air filter.” (3)

On June 5th of this year – 2015, the NY Times published an article called “Even Low-Level Air Pollution May Cause Harm”.  The article sites a study by researchers in which the death rate in New England residents over 65 was tracked in conjunction to daily air pollution.  The study showed a correlation between a slight increase “10 micrograms per cubic meter” of air pollution and the death rate which rose 2.14 percent.  (4)

The EPA has posted numerous information about indoor air quality in an effort to educate the public including a statement that says “Indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks.”  It also goes on to recommend “adequate ventilation with clean outdoor air …. but if there are undesirable levels of contaminants contained in outdoor air….. an air cleaning device may be useful.” (5)

Air filtration is not just for asthmatics or those with severe allergies.  As our outdoor air pollution grows worse and we learn more about the hazards of indoor air pollution, air filtration systems like NIKKEN’s KenkoAir Purifier are an integral part of your wellness home.

NIKKEN’s Dynamic Underlayer Kinetic Tape


Physical therapists, occupational therapists, certified athletic trainers, chiropractors, physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, and professional athletes are among those using kinetic Tape.  This elastic tape can stretch up to 30% or 40% of it’s length and is said to have beneficial effects on several body systems including, circulatory/lymphatic, neural, muscular, and fascial as well as joints. 

One of the ways it helps is to lift the upper layers of skin from the muscle relieving pressure on the pain receptors and allowing for better flow of the lymphatic system, blood and lactic acid.  All of this works to allow the body to have a more normal response to injury and “removes some of the roadblocks that normally slow down the healing process.” Kinetic tape can also help to correct alignment of weak muscles and through the recoiling of the elastic can facilitate joint motion. 

While kinetic tape is awesome, NIKKEN’s Kenkotherm DUK Tape is even more awesome! NIKKEN took all the amazing qualities of regular Kinetic Tape and gave it superpowers by adding the far-infrared and negative-ion technology.  The Kenkotherm DUK Tape comforts stressed muscles and joints and promotes greater freedom of movement while it produces warmth from natural energy and refreshing negative ions.

There are many websites devoted to showing you how to properly apply kinetic tape.  Two of our favorites are www.rocktape.com and www.spidertech.com/.  Our own Jen Bessire, a physical therapist for 20 years with a PhD in Kinesiology, did a presentation on how great NIKKEN’s DUK tape is and she does some demonstrations on how to properly use it.  This was a fantastic presentation and can be viewed on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXCmFW88My8.

During the product launch in Salt Lake City, I was able to interview people who had used the new DUK Tape and their experiences were amazing.  You can watch some of those testimonials here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6rFXWwv6cY.

This tape is incredible and has the potential to open so many more doors for NIKKEN’s consultants.  Talk to your physical therapist, your doctor, your chiropractor, your personal trainer and tell them about NIKKEN’s Dynamic Underlayer Kinetic Tape.  It’s a great way to introduce NIKKEN and all of their other amazing products.

Here are some flyers for you to print to introduce the DUK Tape to people.
