Developed by a highly skilled group of scientists, medical professionals and engineers, the Bio-Mat™ system is a state-of-the-art FDA-approved medical device (U.S.F.D.A Medical Device No. 2954299) that delivers therapeutic Far Infrared Rays and Negative Ions, relieving pain and restoring balance and energy to the human body.  Many insurance companies consider the Bio-Mat Amethyst™ a viable treatment option for pain as well as other musculoskeletal problems (See FDA Link for Registered License). 

The Bio-Mat Amethyst’s™ primary power is its ability to support our body’s natural process of detoxifying acidic waste to provide an environment that restores vitality. 

You’ll immediately notice your muscles relaxing through the dry heating system of the Bio-Mat, as it not only warms the surface of your skin, but also penetrates for deep, soothing comfort.  The gentle warmth of the Bio-Mat Amethyst gives you an overall massaging effect, soothing nerves and muscles and cleansing your body of toxins with natural healing.

WHAT MAKES THE BIO-MAT WORK SO WELL?

· The Bio-Mat is enhanced with Amethyst Crystals, known for their calming and healing effects since ancient times.  When Far Infrared Rays (FIR) are conducted through Amethyst Crystals, the Far Infrared wave length elongates, penetrating into the human body 5-7 inches.

The Amethyst Crystals amplify the Far Infrared Light 200 times more powerfully than FIR by itself.

· These rays, not only benefit the skin and muscle tissue on the surface of the body, but penetrate deeper into the lymph glands, blood vessels, nerves, as well as key organs.

· These rays vitalize the biological function of our cells and increase circulation

· It works without electric coils!

· Infrared rays which are at the opposite side of the spectrum are healthy kind of rays that give you warmth and relaxation.

· Medical and therapeutic professionals have found that the same infrared rays as in natural sunlight are generated in the BioMat™ by modern technology.

FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect.  The human body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability.  Humans emit FIR, however we need a reflection to absorb it. For example: When we cuddle with another person or a dog or cat, the cozy feeling you experience is the Far Infrared reflection. When FIR penetrates through the skin to the subcutaneous tissues, it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues causes blood vessels in capillaries to dilate, promotingbetter blood circulationand the heat produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating.

In addition, the Bio-Mat Amethyst™ delivers Negative Ions, which energize the bodyNegative Ions are the key to cellular communication and the metabolism of cellular waste. The Negative Ions also restore the blood’s pH balance for optimal health.

Unlike an electric blanket or heating pad, the Bio-Mat Amethyst™ does not get hot when it is turned on. However, if you lie down on it, it warms the inside of your body and the part of the pad making contact with your skin gets warm.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM USING A BIO-MAT?

· Relieves Pain
The deep heat of far infrared helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscles and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products (such as lactic acid) and delivers oxygen rich blood to oxygen depleted muscles, so they recover faster.

· Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness
Far Infrared heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many kinds of arthritis and musculo-skelatal disorders. In addition, it has been proved effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other musculo-skeletal aliments. Stiffness, aches and soreness that come with age are reduced or eliminated using FIR.

· Improves Immune System Function
Far Infrared Ray’s deep heat raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial and healthy fever. As the body works to combat the “fever”, your body’s immune system is activated and strengthened. Combined with the detoxification of harmful toxins and waste products, your overall health and resistance to disease is improved greatly.

· Reduces Stress and Fatigue
The gentle warmth of the Far Infrared Rays help to sooth nerves and relax tight or knotted muscles. The end result is reduced stress and improved energy.

· Improves Skin
The Bio-Mat’s Far Infrared and Negative Ions penetrate the skin deeply, helping to detoxify impurities from the skin and lymph. In addition, exfoliation is greatly enhanced by the Far Infrared, rapidly removing dead skin cells. Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface, rejuvenating your skin’s natural glow.

· Burns Calories and Controls Weight
As you relax in the gentle heat of Far Infrared, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat (as if you were in a sauna) pumping blood and burning calories. According to a Journal of the American Medical Association report, a single far infrared session, burns as many calories as rowing or jogging for 30 minutes. You can safely get a full cardio workout and burn up to 600 calories in 30 minutes. Fat becomes water soluble at 110° Fahrenheit. This is when cellulite dissolves and is eliminated through sweating

· Removes Bodily Toxins & Assists in Detoxification
Far Infrared helps to detoxify the body in several important ways. Increased blood circulation stimulates sweat glands, releasing built up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid, cholesterol and uric acid. In addition to sweating, far infrared is capable of removing toxins via several other bodily systems.
