Biomat® Healing & Detox Sessions
Far- Infrared Therapy, Amethyst Gemstones & Negative Ions
The BioMat® is an FDA-approved medical device that converts electricity into deeply penetrating far-infrared rays (FIR) (nature’s invisible light) and cellularly activating and renewing negative ions (which are found abundantly in nature). Amethyst crystals with their conductive properties encourage far deeper penetration into human cells than any other FIR device or mat.
Benefits of FIR
Studies suggest that FIR therapy reduces swelling, increases blood flow, stimulates the production of healthy cell tissue, encourages the elimination of cellular waste and toxins and promotes faster healing. Researchers have also found it to destroy cancer and viral cells without harming surrounding healthy cells. FIR penetrates 6-8 inches into the innermost recesses of the body, stimulating healing and regeneration of nerves and muscle tissue layers.
Other components involved in the Biomat® are negative Ions. These are negatively-charged molecules or atoms which are naturally found in the highest concentration around waterfalls and pounding surf. Negative Ions have been studied for their beneficial effects on human health and wellbeing. Research by Dr. Takada Maku of Japan shows that with the introduction of negative ions to the human body there is increased calcium and sodium in the blood and blood purification is promoted through increased alkalinity. Exposure to negative ions has been found to revitalize cell metabolism, enhance immune function, purify the blood, balance the autonomic nervous system, promote a feeling of wellbeing and more. Unlike heating pads and blankets, the BioMat® functions without the production of harmful electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs).
What to expect?
BioMat® sessions are deeply relaxing. Treatments take place in a setting similar to what one might expect for a massage. The full-length BioMat® is placed on a massage table and covered with a cotton pad and a sheet.
Clients lie on the BioMat® and it is turned on. The BioMat® range of settings is from no or little heat (Negative Ion Therapy) to high heat for thermal therapy (Infrared Ray Therapy and Negative Ion Therapy). Clients remain fully clothed for all sessions.
This modality can be booked as a stand-alone treatment ($30 per 30min | $50 per 1 hour) or as an add-on to other sessions. Packages available upon request.
