The BioMat uses verified scientific principles to deliver holistic treatment that reaches the whole body, while providing a non-invasive and soothing experience. In addition to providing relief from some types of pain and discomfort, the BioMat provides muscle relaxation and increased local circulation where applied.
What is a BioMat? The Biomat is a “pad” which lies on top of a treatment table. It converts electricity through a computerized control panel, into Far Infrared Rays (FIR), nature’s invisible light. FIR was discovered by NASA to be the safest, most beneficial light wave.
The BioMat is a US FDA 510k approved Class II Medical Device ideal for
- Minor muscle pain
- Minor joint pain and stiffness
- Joint paint associated with arthritis
- Muscle spasms
- Minor sprains
- Minor strains
- Minor muscular back pain
Three complementary technologies deliver powerful results
The BioMat products are made possible by three complementary technologies that work synergistically to deliver powerful healing treatments. The first of these technologies first came to light when two gifted scientists, Dr. Erwin Neher and Dr. Bert Sakmann, discovered that 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 centre of the cell. They are even capable of stimulating new memory traces in the brain! Neher and Sakmann revolutionized the field of cell biology and received the Nobel Prize in 1991 for their discovery.
Far infrared spectrum therapy
The effectiveness of light therapy has been acknowledged by the mainstream medical profession for some time now. Laser light has been used to tone and rejuvenate skin and reduce fine lines.
The beneficial properties of far infrared light have received particular attention from the scientific community in recent years, although the first research conducted on this part of the light spectrum was undertaken by NASA decades ago.
Natural superconducting properties deliver deep treatment
The third technology incorporated into the BioMat is the oldest and most valued throughout the centuries. Amethyst’s healing powers have been celebrated for thousands of years. The ancient Greeks believed it protected against intoxication. In fact, the word originates from the Greek word, “amethustos” or “sobriety.” 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 and deeply, penetrating the body.
