Experience the Healing Powers of the BioMat with a Reiki Session
by Beverley Dawson
The blending of a Reiki session while lying on a BioMat creates a deep and efficient healing environment. I have incorporated it into all my regular Reiki treatments. Users love the gentle warmth of the amethyst BioMat and the overall gentle relaxing effect.
I was introduced to the Richway Professional BioMat a few years ago. The surface isn’t hot to the touch, but when you lie down on it, you feel warm on the inside. It is completely different from an electric heating pad. The BioMat is an amethyst crystal-filled far-infrared-light mattress pad which lies on top of a massage table. It produces high quality far infrared rays by means of super fibre and natural amethyst. These rays from the BioMat can penetrate six to eight inches into the innermost recesses of the body, stimulating healing and regeneration of nerves and muscle tissue layers. When lying on the mattress pad, you experience a deep, penetrating heat energy that can provide a heightened sense of well-being and healing.
The BioMat has three primary therapeutic components:
- Far Infrared Rays and Circulation
Far infrared rays are part of the electromagnetic spectrum that has been studied for various health benefits. It provides warmth and relaxation similar 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 temporarily increase local circulation. This deep tissue heating relaxes the muscles and tissues surrounding the joints, relieving pain and discomfort.
- Negative Ions
Negative ions, or anions, 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 forests, mountains, waterfalls, and oceans. They are believed to relieve stress and boost our energy. The negative ions stimulate all of the cell membranes of the body, causing their ion channels to become active. This helps to alkalize all cells by removing cellular waste and toxins.
- Amethyst Crystals
These two components (far infrared rays and negative ions) are transferred through amethyst quartz crystals which cover the entire mat’s surface. Amethyst has been known since ancient times for its calming and healing effects. The crystals are known as one of the greatest natural conductors to deliver both infrared and negative ions naturally.
Benefits of the BioMat include:
- Improves Circulation and Cardiovascular Function
Far infrared waves raise body temperature, warming the blood and expanding the blood vessels. There is an increase in peripheral blood flow and volume, resulting in improved circulation and heart function.
- Relieves Pain and Stiffness
Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles, so they recover faster. Far infrared heat therapy is widely used to treat people suffering from many kinds of arthritis and musculoskeletal disorders.
- Reduces Stress and Fatigue
The gentle warmth of the far infrared rays helps to soothe nerves and relax tight or knotted muscles. The end result is reduced stress and improved energy.
- Removes Bodily Toxins and Assists in Detoxification
Far infrared waves help to detoxify the body in several important ways. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid, cholesterol, and uric acid.
What Can a BioMat Do for You?
Whether you are looking for detoxification, or relief from knotted muscles or stress, as you comfortably relax on the BioMat, the warming, soothing infrared rays pass through the layers of amethyst/tourmaline, permeating their healing light energy deep within your body, bringing with it the negative ions so vital to life itself.
BioMats are approved FDA medical devices and Class Two medical devices in Canada for temporary relief from minor spasms, sprains, strains, muscle pain, minor joint pain associated with arthritis, and more. BioMats heat you from the inside out with infrared light. This raises core body temperature, making one’s immune system considerably stronger. The BioMat is a highly effective therapy and is great for everyone. It promotes the body’s natural healing process.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of healing and self-improvement. (“Rei” means universal and “ki” (like chi) means energy.) It flows through a person the way electricity flows though wires. Reiki releases blocked energy and negative emotional patterns that can lead to depression, anxiety, dysfunction, and dis-ease. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. For those on the path for personal growth, Reiki is a wonderful resource to complement your spiritual journey. It treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit, creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well-being. Many have reported miraculous results.
