I use the Pro size Biomat on my treatment table to intensify the effectiveness of my bodywork and use it at home at high levels for detoxing and treating exercise and work related muscle soreness, and sleep on one all the time for general healing, recovery and quality of sleep. Nothing like something warm to snuggle up to! I sell and rent these Biomats because I found then to be so valuable in my own experience. The following is a short overview about the Biomat. For more information about all the Biomat models, pads and comforters, as well as Detox Salt and Alkaline Water Generator and to place orders, click of the following link:
The BioMat is very different from a standard heating pad. The Biomat heats the body with deep penetrating long wave or far infrared radiation which is emitted by the extensive quantity of Amethyst crystals when they are warmed by by an inner flexible conductive heating layer, originally developed by NASA to safely warm space stations. Advance controls, construction, testing and certification assure that the Biomat emits very low electromagnetic fields (EMF). This is in contrast to heating pads which employ heating coils which can cause local heating and even burns and emit considerable EMF.
The BioMat transfers far more heat deeper into the body, compared to a heating pad, because the heat radiates from the warm crystals into the tissues; not primary by conduction through contact with heated elements. The radiated heat is distributed evenly throughout the body, rather than just on the skin's surface, resulting in great therapeutic value.
Far Infrared Light: This is the same phenomenon as visible light, but the wavelength is longer, so we cannot detect it visually. As the wavelength increases, the light can penetrate more deeply, transferring heat very efficiently. This is why sunlight warms us to our bones and why the new generation of Saunas are being built around Far Infrared. If you hold a white light flashlight behind your fingers, you see red light. This is because red passes through the tissues much more efficiently than blue light at the other end end of the spectrum which is readily absorbed. And since Far Infrared is even longer wavelengths than red light, its penetration is the best.
Negative Ions: These are air molecules that have an extra electron, hence the negative charge. Negative ions are abundant near large sources of moving water, like waterfalls and rain. These free electrons neutralize oxidizing compounds (free radicals). They are an anti-oxidant, naturally combating inflammation.
Amethyst: Natural crystals convert conductive heat into far infrared light very efficiently. Commonly infrared products rely on economical crystalline materials such as ceramic or graphite. Natural crystals have long been used for healing purposes, across many different cultures, and there could be a scientific basis for this practice, yet to be discovered.
