Far Infrared Light: This is light that is lower frequency than visible light on the elctro-magnetic spectrum. It penetrates several inches into most objects, transferring heat very efficiently. It’s a type of heat but the most penetrating kind with wavelengths that have healing properties. In fact, heat transferred merely by conduction (a.k.a. contact) or convection (a.k.a airflow) does not heat an object deeply, or evenly throughout whereas the Biomat technology does.

Thermotherapy (heat therapy) is known to allow for increased metabolism. A faster metabolic rate allows cells to absorb more oxygen, export more acidic wastes & repair faster. Regular use of thermotherapy has been found to benefit the treatment of chronic pain and autoimmune conditions, including but not limited to neuropathy, fibromyalgia, back pain, Lyme disease, and arthritis.

Negative Ions: These are particles in the air that have an extra electron & thus a negative charge. They are significant because bodies can be damaged by oxidative stress (a.k.a. free radicals), but surrounding our environments with extra negative ions helps to balance and neutralize oxidizing compounds. According to the authors of Earthing, pain is related to excess positive charge. So, increasing negative ions allows us to ground and balance, reducing pain. See WebMd’s article regarding the benefits of negative ions.

Amethyst: The Biomat makes generous use of amethyst crystals. Amethyst crystals are known to efficiently convert heat energy into far-infrared light effectively due to its crystalline structure + specific vibrational frequency. In addition, they help to amplify the far-infrared energy. When heated, amethyst has been shown to emit energy at 8 + 12 microns of wavelength. Far infrared energy penetrates deeply into tissues, increases circulation and metabolism, and is known to relieve pain. In addition, amethyst is known for its detoxing, protective, purifying & calming properties. In addition, it enhances a connection with our spiritual selves.

Tourmaline: The BioMat now employs a new Tourmaline “Toca Catch Power” Layer…this new top layer refers to a special ionized fabric, which is powered tourmaline along with chrome and 20 other minerals infused in the fabric! This is combined with the ions produced electronically through additional layers in the BioMat. The total combined Ion output is greatly amplified for a better full body treatment.

BioClay: a material that’s been added to the cotton pad that goes with the BioMat, helping to create a gentler, more comfortable far infrared experience. The cotton pad is now a different color due to the addition of the BioClay, but it remains a washable item.

Why Does It Work?:

Crystal Photon Therapy (TM) is all about crystals and light working together.

Biomat TechnologyWhen we are emotionally or physically healthy our biophotons, which are units of electromagnetic radiation in each of our cells and DNA, are high in number. When we’re ill, the biophotons are low. When we work with crystals, resonance takes place.

So now our biophotons are very excited; glowing. These excited biophotons may be yet another explanation for a strong, healthy, bright aura. As a side note, this marvel concurs with many sacred traditions which state that at the most advanced stage of “enlightenment” our body is transformed into light energy, E=mc2. Now, this energizing “enlightenment” allows the crystals we’re working with to emit photons of light which can vary in intensity.

An increase in oxygen also increases our biophotons. Therefore, in my reasoning, working with oxygen-based crystals, such as those in the quartz family (like Amethyst), means we’re surrounding ourselves with photons of light encased in oxygen atoms thereby supporting cellular repair and healing. Scientists have found cells (including DNA) 99% destroyed by UV light can be almost entirely repaired just by illuminating the cell with the same wavelength at a much weaker intensity.

Therefore, if we increase the crystals in one’s EMF we can increase the number of photons inducing this powerful healing effect on the body and mind. In fact, scientists have started using various light tools to communicate nutrient and mineral information in the form of light into the body, entraining it biochemically the same way as eating the nutrient or mineral would do!

AmethystI Recommend and Use:

The Biomat Pro (pictured above)
Size: 700 x 1880mm / 28″ x 75″
$1750 or $1650 with certification in any healing modality or U.S. Veterans (a copy of your certificate needs to scanned & provided with order. If you’re an HMCA graduate, we’ll take care of that for you.) Veterans may also receive this discounted price with proof of military ID submitted at the time of order.
$2100 or $2000 ($100 discount with certification or U.S. Veteran) for the Professional Set includes Amethyst + Black Tourmaline Pillow!

The BioMat Professional Set consists of the Professional BioMat and Amethyst Pillow. Comes complete with a single control panel, variable temperature + time settings, super-heavy duty wheeled travel suitcase, and 100% cotton quilted cover. When you purchase a BioMat, you are investing in a device that uses only top-of-the-line components, including a computer control panel with an advanced IC chip manufactured by Texas Instruments and pure, superconducting amethyst channels covering the entire surface area. These channels are laid over a multilayer, bonded base comprising 17 unique materials, including patented Japanese kurare superfiber, urethane protective layers, and a 2002mx semiconductor heating plate. Read up on the three-year warranty here. 

BioMat Size: 28″ x 75″, allows for total head-to-toe body treatment

BioMat Amethyst Weight: 17.5 lb / 8 kg

BioMat Total Weight: 28 lb / 13 kg

  • Optional (but I highly recommend also) BioMat Pillow contains black tourmaline + amethyst crystals. In my opinion, these are two of the most beneficial healing + grounding stones in the world. Congruent with Ayurvedic health concepts, the Amethyst Pillow keeps the head cool while allowing the body to reach higher temperatures on the BioMat. The BioMat Pillow NASA technology memory foam is covered with a zippered case containing healing stones that can be removed and used as a body wrap for the chest, stomach, arms, and legs!
