The BioMat is a state-of-the-art thermotherapy device based on Nobel Prize-winning research.
Benefits of Amethyst-Crystal BioMat Sessions
BioMat’s far-infrared rays penetrate deeply into the body and promote our natural state of health and balance. The gentle warmth gives an overall massaging effect, soothing stressed nerves and knotted muscles.
US FDA’s Medical Device 510K indications for use:
- Relaxation of muscles,
- Increase of local circulation where applied
Temporary relief of:
- Minor muscle pain, joint pain and stiffness
- Joint pain associated with arthritis
- Muscle spasms
- Minor sprains and strains
- Minor muscular back pain
Additional Benefits from BioMat Use:
- Supports a healthy immune system
- Facilitates muscle and connective tissue repair
- Helps to remove toxins from the body
- Supports the body’s natural ability to heal
- Reduces stress and fatigue
- Balances metabolism and endocrine system
- Assists with weight management
- Improves sleep (if associated with pain relief)
What Happens During a BIOMAT session?
While laying on the BioMat you stay fully dressed in comfortable clothes. You will have the option of following a guided Chakra Balancing meditation, listening to gentle music, or just being in silence. We will come into the room quietly once the session is over and you will have a few minutes to stretch and fully awaken. Many clients describe this session as “the most relaxed they have ever been.”
What are far-infrared rays?
Far-infrared rays are part of the electro-magnetic light spectrum and are close to the light frequency of natural sunlight. However, far-infrared does not contain any of sunlight’s harmful UV/UVB radiation.
Having been called the Miracle Light Waves, far-infrared waves penetrate 6-8 inches into the body, benefiting not just muscles, but lymph, glands, blood vessels and nerves as well.
The beneficial properties of far-infrared light have received particular attention from the scientific community in recent years, although the first research conducted on this part of the light spectrum was undertaken by NASA decades ago. Today, health practitioners from a wide range of disciplines agree on the beneficial properties of far-infrared technology.
Warming the body, improving circulation and enzyme activity, far-infrared rays are pure energy in the form of light waves from the invisible area of the electromagnetic spectrum.
If you are experiencing anything ranging from back or neck pain, joint stiffness, neuralgia, fatigue, headaches, insomnia, fibromyalgia and restless leg syndrome to high blood pressure, anemia, allergies, arthritis, and digestive disorders — this technology may provide lasting relief.

What are negative ions?
Negative ions are odorless, tasteless and invisible particles that we inhale in abundance near waterfalls, rainforests and oceans. Scientifically, they are molecules with an extra electron.
An ion is a particle containing an electrical charge. An ion with a negative electrical charge is called a negative ion, and this type of ion is now considered to be integral to healthy cellular function.
They help alleviate allergies, migraines and sinus problems. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative Ions have a positive effect on the rate at which serotonin is oxidized in the bloodstream, resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy.
How does the BioMat deliver far-infrared rays and negative ions to the human body?
The topmost layer of the BioMat is constructed of superconducting channels of pure amethyst, which allow the far-infrared rays and negative ions to penetrate the body deeply.
How does amethyst quartz enhance ionic and far-infrared ray therapy?
Amethyst’s healing properties have been acknowledged and celebrated for centuries by ancient scientists, healers and others. Now, modern science has confirmed the highly conductive properties of this remarkable mineral. Amethyst crystals offer the most consistent and powerful delivery of far-infrared light waves, and ionic effects to the human body.
In addition, Amethyst crystal bolsters the production of hormones, strengthens the
cleansing organs (liver, kidneys), the circulatory system and blood, the immune system and
body metabolism. Amethyst aids in the transmission of neural signals.
