All of my healing sessions, including the crystal facials, are done in conjunction with the use of a Bio-mat. This infrared heating mat not only delivers deep relaxation but also added healing benefits. Some of the technologies underlying the BioMat medical products have existed for more than a thousand years, while others have been refined or confirmed by modern science and medicine.

Three complementary technologies work synergistically to deliver powerful healing treatment: infrared light, negative ions, and Amethyst crystals.

Far infrared light transfers heat very efficiently and is why sunlight feels warm. It can penetrate 6-8 inches into the body and because of this, these rays not only benefit the surface but all the cells including blood vessels, lymph glands, and nerves in the deepest parts of our body. This deeply penetrating heat speeds cellular metabolism reduces pain and quickly heals injuries.

Ion channels exist in our body cells that are capable of stimulating the cells and altering the cell membranes to allow cells to communicate with one another. These ion channels essentially act like “pores” in the cells, letting external stimuli deep into the center of the cell. They are even capable of stimulating new memory traces in the brain. Negative ions are particles in the air that have an extra electron. They are plentiful near large quantities of moving water such as waterfalls and the ocean. These particles tend to donate their extra electron, and this can directly cancel oxidation in the body, making them “anti-oxidants.” When the Bio-mat is turned on, it produces these ions on its surface to transmit the healing effects of these pristine, natural settings.

The third technology incorporated into the BioMat is the oldest and most valued throughout the centuries – Amethyst crystals. Amethyst’s healing powers have been celebrated for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks believed it protected against intoxication. Leonardo da Vinci believed that amethyst had the power to protect against evil and to increase intelligence. Buddhists use the stone to enhance peace and tranquility during meditation. Today, modern science shows us that centuries of lore surrounding the stone’s healing powers are supported by its unique physical characteristics, including its piezoelectric properties, which allow it to carry both a negative and a positive charge simultaneously. The outermost layer of every BioMat product is covered with channels of pure amethyst through which the far infrared rays must pass. The superconducting properties of the amethyst layer turn these rays into long wavelengths capable of safely penetrating the body as deeply as seven inches.

Benefits of BioMat treatments:

  • Treat chronic pain and stiffness
  • Speed the healing of joints and tissue
  • Muscle relaxation (especially the back)
  • Improve circulation
  • Detoxify
  • Boost the immune system
  • Speeds recover from surgery or injury
  • Reduce stress and anxiety, and improve mood
  • Promote deep relaxation and restful sleep
