Developed by highly skilled scientists and engineers, The Amethyst BioMat™ has been described as a breakthrough in medical science.
First created in 1997 the Amethyst BioMat™ has helped thousands of people who experience a variety of different joint and muscle pain from every day aches and pains through to arthritis. It provides warming thermotherapy, which has been shown to cause an increase in skin microcirculation, skin temperature and core temperature – providing relief from temporary aches and pains.
The Amethyst BioMat™ contains both Amethyst and Tourmaline – two stones which have been highly valued over the centuries by many cultures for their mind clearing, mood balancing and relaxing qualities.
The Amethyst BioMat™is made up of 17 different layers which include active materials and Amethyst stones.
When the layers work together they generate far infrared rays which are absorbed by the body as heat – this provides a relaxing and massaging effect.
The far infrared rays warm up the part of your body that is in contact with the mat and this warmth is absorbed deeper into your body. The BioMat™ comes equipped with thermal sensors to ensure that it doesn’t get too hot – if this happens the electrical current is immediately turned off.
An easy to use external control box allows you to adjust the desired temperature and usage time and an added safety feature means that the temperature will automatically drop if the mat is left on for longer than four hours.
The 17 layers of the Amethyst BioMat™:
Far Infrared Rays - The combination of natural Amethyst and Hyron cotton generates far infrared rays (6-12 Microns) which have been designed for the human body to easily absorb. Far Infrared rays provide warmth and relaxation and have been demonstrated to temporarily increase local circulation. Warmth has long been associated with relaxes tissues and muscles and this can provide a temporary relief from minor discomfort.
Negative Ions - Natural Tourmaline and the TOCA™ (Tourmaline) layer generates negative ions. Negative ions are found in great quantity in the natural environment and it is believed that they may be responsible for relieving stress and boosting energy.
EMF (Electro Magnetic Fields) - Special layers of fabric in conjunction with the BioMat™ EMF Interceptor effectively reduce potentially harmful electromagnetic waves.
