The BioMat is an FDA licensed medical device, developed by a team of scientists, medical professionals and engineers, that combines state of the art far infrared light with the healing power of amethyst crystal. The BioMat is a pad that lies on top of a massage table and heats up gradually. It converts electricity into far infrared rays (FIR), nature’s invisible light. The topmost layer of the BioMat is constructed of channels of pure amethyst, which allow far infrared rays and negative ions to penetrate the body more deeply and effectively.
Therapeutic Benefits of Far Infrared Waves
Far infrared rays are part of the electromagnetic light frequency of sunlight that is not visible to the human eye. These safe and gentle electromagnetic waves expand blood vessels and increase circulation, allowing more oxygen to reach the tissues of the body. Improved circulation promotes lymph flow around the body, which in turn supports the immune system and helps release toxins stored in tissues.
The far infrared rays produced by the BioMat, pass through a layer of amethyst crystal. Amethyst is associated with powers of purifying and pacifying. As infrared light refracts through the amethyst crystal, the superconducting properties of the amethyst turns these rays into long wavelengths capable of safely penetrating the body as deeply as seven inches.
Improved Circulation and Tissue Healing
The healing benefits of the BioMat are far ranging and include relaxation of muscles and improved circulation. BioMat therapy can help with muscle pain, sprains and spasms, and joint pain and stiffness. By promoting relaxation and improved circulation, the BioMat can also help with stress, insomnia and fatigue, and immune system support.
We offer Biomat therapy as an add-on to acupuncture treatments or as a stand-alone therapy. Because the Biomat is an efficient detoxifier and can produce short-lived symptoms of headache or nausea as your body releases stored toxins, we generally recommend starting with shorter sessions of 15-30 minutes, building up to one hour sessions as your body adapts to the process.
