The Biomat uses a combination of fabrics and Amethyst stones to generate far infrared rays, which is then transferred to the body as heat and Tourmaline that generates negative ions. This combination of Amethyst and Hyron cotton generates far infrared rays (6-12 Microns) that the human body can easily absorb. Far infared rays are part of the electromagnetic spectrum that has various health benefits.
It provides warmth and relaxation similiar to the energy that radiates from the sun. These rays not only benefit muscles on the surface of the body, but all cells and bodily tissues in the deepest parts of the body. The warm stimulating waves temporary increase local circulation. This deep tissue heating relaxes the muscles and tissues surrounding the joints relieving pain and discomfort.
Tourmaline generate negative ions. Negative ions are atoms that have a greater number of electrons(-) than protons(+) which result in a negative charge. They are abundant in natural environments such as forest, mountains and waterfalls. Negative ions are believed to relieve stress and boost energy.
