The Health Benefits of "Grounding."
"Energy medicine is the future of all medicine. We're beginning now to understand things that we know in our hearts are true but we could never measure. As we get better at understanding how little we know about the body, we begin to realize that the next big frontier in medicine is energy medicine. It's not the mechanistic part of the joints moving. It's not the chemistry of our body - it's understanding for the first time how energy influences how we feel."

Reconnecting with Mother Nature
The ground provides an energy source that we can feel even if we are not consciously aware of it. Pay attention when you are barefoot on the beach or on grass. Do you feel warmth? Do you feel a tingling sensation? Do you feel energized? Based on the discovery that “grounding” leads to Active Wellness, the KenkoGround is designed to help us connect to the Earth as a natural energy source. Direct contact with the ground (soil, grass, sand, ocean floor) gives our bodies natural energy to help restore our own healthful nature.
The contemporary lifestyle often causes fatigue, sleeplessness, and a general feeling of being out of balance. Unlike our ancestors who were directly connected to the ground by their bare feet, we separate ourselves from nature by using and wearing non-conductive materials, e.g. rubber, plastic, artificial flooring surfaces, etc. In other words, our feet rarely connect with the earth beneath us.
KenkoGround serves as an indoor and portable way to reconnect with Mother Nature. Simply plug it into a grounded outlet and use it under your feet while working, on your mattress while you sleep or even draped around your shoulders. Direct contact with the skin is best.

Care Instructions: The conductive material is largely water-repellent, so we recommend hand washing with warm water and a mild soap or detergent. You may also choose to wipe with a damp cloth. Do not machine wash or dry clean. Do not twist. Do not wash with bleach, as it may tarnish the silver. Do not use fabric softeners, whitening detergents, oxi-detergents or detergents with oils, e.g. lavender or coconut oil.
Air dry outside, but not under direct sunlight.
DISCLAIMER: Fading or discoloration spots are a normal part of wash and wear on the KenkoGround due to the presence of silver. This does not affect the conductive nature of the silver and the KenkoGround will continue to function in the same way.
Bleach, body lotions, softeners and oils may tarnish the silver thread, which could interfere with conductivity. Wait one hour before using the KenkoGround in direct contact with any skin that has applied lotion.
WARNING: Avoid potential shock hazard. Do not get the KenkoGround wet while plugged in. Use an outlet checker to make sure your outlet is grounded. Place the KenkoGround and cord in such a way that you will not trip when getting in and out of a chair or bed. Fabric is not flame-resistant: keep away from open flame.
Use of the KenkoGround may affect physiological functioning of an individual’s body in a variety of ways. Individuals taking medication to thin the blood, regulate blood sugar, control blood pressure or to supplement thyroid activity should consult their physician prior to usage, then monitor their medication after usage. An adjustment in medication may be necessary.
Warranty: Six months standard limited warranty from purchase date against manufacturing defects. Warranty does not include normal wear and tear or damage due to misuse.
