The Ultimate Relaxation
Recently, I became the happy owner of a nifty healing tool: a Richway Amethyst BioMat with baffles that are filled with crushed amethyst. When the mat is heated, the amethyst crystals produce far infrared rays. If you have ever heard of a far infrared sauna, or a red light sauna, this is similar technology. At the bottom of this article, I include a link to the BioMat website, where you can read all about the specifics of the technology and research.
When I received the BioMat as a gift from a good friend, I was honestly a little skeptical about the technology, As with everything I offer as a massage and energy therapist, I wanted some reliable proof that it was actually going to have a positive impact for my clients. So before using the BioMat professionally, I had to test it out myself.
The first time I lay down on the mat, my body immediately began to calm and settle. It was easy to relax and sink into myself. The warm, crystal-filled mat felt comfortable and supportive. It was so relaxing, my normally busy mind didn't even have thoughts to think! That alone was enough to show me there was more to the BioMat's technology than I had imagined. I tried the mat several more times, and even slept on it for a few nights, using the lowest temperature setting. For months, I had been having knee pain when climbing stairs. After only one night sleeping on the mat, the pain completely disappeared and has not returned.
Next, I asked friends, family and co-workers to try out the BioMat. Everyone had a different experience, and yet, each of my "guinea pigs" had great results. People reported joint pain and stiffness gone or reduced, deep relaxation, enhanced meditation, better sleep, pleasant dreams, headaches going away, feelings of peace and heart opening experiences.
I can now heartily recommend sessions with the BioMat. I am continually amazed at how much it helps with relaxation, and clients are loving it! I've designed some new sessions to collaborate with the BioMat for optimum deep relaxation sessions. BioMat sessions can include meditative bodywork, energy work/Reiki and reflexology.
Please come to see me in Hartland or Elm Grove to give this cool tool a try!
