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 laid down on the mat, I immediately felt my body begin to calm and settle, I found it surprisingly 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 any thoughts to think! This alone was enough to show me that there was more to the mat's technology than I had imagined. I used the mat several more times to see what else might happen. I actually slept on the mat on the lowest temperature setting for a few nights. For several months, I had been having knee pain when climbing stairs. After only one night, the knee 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 clients and the BioMat for optimum deep relaxation sessions. BioMat sessions can include meditative bodywork and energywork.
Please come to see me in Hartland or Elm Grove to give this cool tool a try!
