Many insurance companies consider the BioMat a viable treatment option for pain as well as other musculoskeletal problems. The BioMat delivers the benefits of a Far Infrared sauna for a fraction of the price. The BioMat is a totally unique medical device producing Far Infrared as well as generating 6.8 microns of Medium “Human” Infrared. According to NASA research, Human Infrared normalizes a variety of important physiological functions, especially glandular functions. This Human Infrared feature of the BioMat makes it different from any other infrared device on the market.

In addition, traditional infrared saunas and devices utilize 120 volt AC current. AC current has been proven to be highly detrimental to human health. AC or alternating current disturbs the human biological field. The BioMat protects your body from the harmful AC current by providing a 5 tiered buffering system in which the AC current is converted to DC (direct current) which is bio-electrically compatible with the human body.

The BioMat also delivers Negative Ions, energizing the body for optimal health. The Negative Ions delivered through the BioMat are delivered directly to the body through the skin’s surface via conduction. This greatly differs from the ambient air ions delivered through the popular negative ion generators used for air cleaning, which NASA reported only positively effecting 25% of people. The direct conduction of negative ions allows for an immediate response and change in the body's electrical field for 100% of the people, whereby cell channels are activated for a rapid return to the body's optimal physiological state.

The BioMat is further enhanced with Amethyst Crystals, known for their calming and healing effects since ancient times. The BioMat is a revolutionary healing tool, ideal for health care professionals or anyone interested in improving their overall health and well-being.

The "Amethyst Effect" was scientifically demonstrated through spectral analysis demonstrating a change in infrared light when refracted through amethyst crystals. Scientists experimented passing far infrared light through a variety of substances, including various gems, glasses and plastics. Amethyst was found to be the only substance which clearly changed the spectrum of infrared light. Wave forms mimicked patterns similar to the human voice according to scientists. While no theory has yet been proposed regarding the Amethyst Effect, scientists hypothesize the infrared light passed through the amethyst, releases over 20 million years of information which is made available to the human body for healing purposes.

The field of Far Infrared Crystallography explains this effect in further detail. FIR refracted through amethyst crystals organizes the FIR into geometrical patterns with higher bio-compatibility. Korean researchers propose, addition of the amethyst allows for greater increase in the utilization of the light by the human organism.

Far Infrared Rays (FIR) penetrate 6-8 inches into the human body. These rays not only benefit the skin and muscle tissue on the surface of the body, but penetrate into deeper tissues. The FIR penetrates into the lymph glands, blood vessels, nerves, as well as key organs. The rays optimize the health of these tissues in a number of ways. First discovered by NASA, scientists propose among the energy spectrum coming from the sun, the FIR waves are by far the safest and most beneficial electromagnetic energy available for the human body, directly affecting all metabolic and cellular functions.




- Improves Circulation and Cardiovascular Function – Far Infrared Waves raise the body temperature warming the blood and expanding blood vessels. There is an increase in peripheral blood flow and volume, resulting in improved circulation and heart function.

- Improves Immune System Function – FIR’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.

- The BioMat 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 and delivers oxygen rich blood to oxygen depleted muscles, so they recover faster.

- The BioMat Burns Calories and Controls Weight – As you relax in the gentle heat of Far Infrared, your body is actually hard at work, producing sweat, 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.

- The BioMat Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness – Far Infrared heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many kinds of arthritis and musculoskeletal disorders. In addition, it has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasm, join stiffness and many other musculoskeletal ailments. Stiffness, aches and soreness which come from aging are reduced or eliminated using FIR.

- The BioMat Reduces Stress and Fatigue – The gentle warmth of the FIR helps to soothe nerves and relax tight or knotted muscles. The end result is reduced stress and improved energy.

- The BioMat Improves Skin – The BioMat’s Far Infrared and Negative Ions deeply penetrate the skin, 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 health and appearance.

- Removes Bodily Toxins and Assists in Detoxification – Far Infrared helps to detoxify the body in several important ways. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins and waste from the cells. Daily sweating helps 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 body systems.



Blood Alkalization and Blood Purification

When negative ions are applied to the body, the calcium and sodium circulating in the body are ionized. This changes the blood PH into an alkaline state and has an overall effect on the body. The normal PH of human arterial blood is approximately 7.40 (normal range is 7.35-7.45), a weak alkaline solution. Blood which has a PH below 7.35 is considered “acidic”, while blood PH above 7.45 is alkaline. Proper blood PH is essential for optimal health. It has been noted the negative ions applied to the body are helpful at regulating the blood PH.

Reviving the Cell

When the amount of negative ions in the blood increases, there is an increase in inter-cellular communication. Cellular metabolism is facilitated and as a result there is an increase in cellular nutrient uptake and cellular hydration. In addition, cellular waste materials are more efficiently excreted. With the increase in cellular metabolism, optimal cell function is rapidly revived. Further information is found in the Nobel Prize in Physiology (1991) for the discovery of ionic channel function.

Diseases Associated With Ionic Deficiencies

Indoor environment, city living, cars, exposure to electronic devices, EMF’s (electromagnetic fields) and environmental pollution all result in increased positive ions in one’s body, tilting the ratio of ions towards the positive. This results in a physiological imbalance which may have detrimental health consequences. Too few negative ions in our body can cause a number of diseases. Some of the health problems associated with an imbalance of ions in the body include: anemia, allergies, shoulder pain, lumbago, rheumatism, neuralgia, headaches, kidney problems, imbalanced autonomic nervous system function, insomnia and fatigue.



The BioMat is different from any other Infrared or Negative Ion generating device on the market. Two other common products exist on the market at this time: the Aesta Mat and the Vita-Mat. Sellers of these mats claim they are equal and deliver the same benefits for a lower price. This is quite misleading. First, the BioMat is the original mat and the others were created by competitors in an attempt to duplicate the technology for a lower price. One manufacturer even claims to produce their mat in the same facility where the BioMat is produced. The BioMat differs from the others in the following ways.
