Bio Mat FAQ

Here are some answers to common questions from our customers regarding the Richway Biomat and related health products. Feel free to contact us for more information, we are happy to help!

How does the Biomat work?

The Biomat uses a Japanese carbon based woven fiber to generate Far Infrared Rays (FIR), which is amplified 200X by the exterior layer of amethyst crystals. FIR can penetrate up to 6 inches into the body generating heat at a molecular level. This gentle and safe heating effect increases blood flow and circulation to promote deep healing

The Biomat has an additional super fiber layer that emits a microscopic electrical discharge producing negative Ions. An ion is a particle containing an electrical charge. Negative ions are abundant in nature and help bind to free radicals in the body and slow the aging process. Negative ions also help the cells of the body to absorb nutrients and eliminate toxins.

The combination of Far Infra Red heat and negative ions are what make the Biomat a truly unique and powerful healing device for use at home or in the clinic.

What does it feel like?

For many people their first experience of being on a Biomat is like falling in love, seriously! The Biomat generates a deep nourishing warmth that the body and mind craves, like the sun.

The heat from a Biomat is very different from standard heating pads on the market. Because the Bio Mat uses far Infra red light technology the sensation of heat is generated from within the body, rather than radiant heat from the mat. Initially the mats surface temperature is cooler than other devices, however after a short time the heat becomes quite pervasive. If you have spent anytime sun bathing you will recognize the familiar soothing warmth from this device.

2O minutes on the Biomat will likely leave you feeling a deep sense of relaxation and peace of mind, similar to the experience of a good massage or acupuncture session.

Is the Biomat used just for pain?

The Biomat has many therapeutic uses related to the benefits of Far Infrared Rays (FIR) and negative ions. Beyond pain relief many people have found the Biomat helpful for treating mental and emotional issues like stress and anxiety. The Bio Mat also supports the body’s natural detoxification channels and immune system, making it an ideal ally for those in recovery from a chronic illness or addiction.

The Biomat is an integral part of a powerful new adjunct therapy known as Thermotherapy, used to weaken cancer cells and destroy pathogens by inducing a fever like healing response in the body. To read more about Thermotherapy click here.

What are the therapeutic benefits far infrared rays?

The Far Infrared Rays (FIR) is a similar light frequency to natural sunlight, without the damaging effects of UVA/UVB radiation. Current research suggests that FIR stimulates healthy cell growth and cellular respiration to promote quicker recovery from injury or illness. The Far Infrared rays from the Biomat can penetrate up to 6 inches into the body assisting in the elimination of toxins from the vital organs and connective tissue.

The effects of Far Infrared heat are well documented and include:

  • Relief from chronic pain and joint stiffness
  • Detoxification from common pollutants including heavy metals
  • Increased peripheral circulation
  • Improved mood and sense of well being
  • Reduction of physical tension and stress
  • Improved sleep
  • Shortened recovery time between workouts

I am sensitive to Electro Magnetic frequencies, will the Bio Mat aggravate my condition?

The Bio Mat was designed to address the common problem of harmful EMF emissions found in conventional heating pads. The control unit converts A/C current from your home outlet to D/C power, which is more benign. For additional protection 4 layers of insulating materials in the mat provide an ample barrier from the remaining EMF produced by the D/C current.

Why are amethyst quartz and other semi precious gems used in the Bio Mat?

The healing benefits of amethyst quartz are know in many cultures, dating as far back to the time of the Egyptian Pharos. Amethyst was revered by ancient mystics and healers as a ‘Gem of fire’, increasing mental clarity and creativity, as well as dispelling negative energy. The Greek name for amethyst is amethustos, translating to sobriety.

Amethyst, and the semi precious stones are used in the surface layer of the Bio Mat for their super conducting and piezoelectric qualities. These stones help to convert the Far Infra light from the Bio Mat in to a long wave form, facilitating deeper penetration – up to 7 inches into the body.

Many of the core functions of the Bio Mat including detoxification and stress reduction are directly linked to this special stone.
