Biomat = Healing mat: Newest treatment in alternative therapy

Tera Johnson-Swartz







Holistic medicine and heat therapies have been around for thousands of years. Hippocrates said 2,300 years ago "Give me fever and I can cure every disease". Nowadays, the demand for less invasive yet equally effective preventative care is back on the rise. Now, combining latest technology with ageless alternative treatments, a new product has been developed marrying the best of both eras: the BioMat.

While today saunas are viewed as a nice reward at the end of a workout, originally they were prescribed for a number of unexpected benefits, most importantly to help revive the circulatory system increasing blood flow through dilating blood vessels. All of this was accomplished simply by slowly raising the core body temperature. Still, one of the big drawbacks to saunas is the profuse sweating and general awkwardness of sitting in what is essentially a hot box along with like-minded folk [a little too] nearby. With minimal space and comfort to truly relax – it is recommended to only stay for 10-20 minute increments and sleeping is highly discouraged.

However what if there was a product that had benefits surpassing those found in either a traditional or infrared-thermal sauna and actually encouraged recipients to lie down and relax? Imagine comfortably lying on a BIOMAT as the warming, soothing infrared rays pass through layers of amethyst/tourmaline, permeating their healing light energy deep within your body bringing you a deep sense of relaxation and euphoria. The BioMat is a fairly new product on the market recommended for medical, physical and deep relaxation needs. It requires minimal space (it is completely portable), considerably less cost in energy bills (1 cent for every hour compared to the average sauna 25 cents every hour), and provides a state-of-the-art Amethyst Crystal Infrared and Negative Ion technology assisting in the healing processes through Thermotherapy. The FDA approved BioMat can be used to achieve the benefits of an infrared sauna without the hazards of heating the head or the negative exposure of Electromagnetic Frequencies.  

What is Thermotherapy? Heat therapy, also called thermotherapy, is the use of heat in therapy, such as for pain relief and health. Infrared rays are invisible waves or rays of energy that elevate the surface temperature of the body. Most competitive Far Infrared systems use electromagnetic fields to accomplish this and as a result, such systems are only able to penetrate heat 2-3" into the body and can feel uncomfortably hot to the skin. The Biomat's exceptional Crystal Infrared system uses Amethyst crystals that cover the surface of the mat and varying temperature settings to allow for the comfort each individual. It's controller blocks harmful interference from all electromagnetic waves circulating throughout the mat itself and thus prevents them from entering your body – imagine the invisible electronic rays that come from your cell phone or laptop that are recommended to be kept at a safe distance from your bedside in order to ensure a good nights sleep. Amethyst is able to conduct high frequency and powerful Infrared light waves generating a natural, [up to 6"] penetrable current of heat, surpassing that by double of standard Far-Infrared systems.

During a single session on the BioMat, one has the opportunity to experience the effects of body core temperature rising through infrared heat, the healing energy of negative ions and a meditative state providing calmness and clarity. This is a wonderful time to reflect, rejuvenate or simply be. Often a refreshing nap occurs, which is encouraged in order to allow the body, mind and spirit to recharge before reentering day-to-day life responsibilities and stresses. Registered as an FDA medical device, doctors as well as mental health professionals often recommend treatments that include BioMat usage to further heal and relax their patients before, during or after their sessions.
