This is an inspiring entrepreneurship story of a gentleman from Thousand Oaks city in south-eastern Ventura County, California who on a trip to China came upon a seat mat that contained bamboo charcoal. He was told it had some amazing properties as it activated with a person’s body temperature and starts warming up to provide relief while sitting, sleeping, or on the computer. He didn’t quite know what to make of it and so he bought one and brought it back home to the U.S. where he tested it out on close friends and family. He immediately got responses back from people who said the warmth helped them sleep better at night, relieve headaches, and someone even sweated buckets at night because it helped detox them from a condition they had. We are talking of Lenny Lam, Founder & CEO of The Healing Tree, LLC
From there, Lenny started buying more bamboo charcoal that was harvested from sustainable forests and put them into various other products like joint supports, pet mats, apparel, and soaps. That was in 2009, and back then nobody in the U.S. knew about bamboo charcoal technology. Since then The Healing Tree continued to spread the word about the benefits of bamboo charcoal through expos, magazines, and tv/radio shows.
This family business today has exhaustive product lines in joint supports, apparel, home & office, personal care, pet care, tea made from the miracle plant bamboo.
