Frequently asked questions about the Biomat Therapy
How do I experience the Bio-Mat?
The Bio-Mat is on top of a massage table covered by soft foam. Clients lay on the massage table, cover up with a blanket and experience the warmth immediately. Some people notice the negative ions immediately and some people need more time to feel the negative ions. You do not notice the amethyst crystals, it is very comfortable, and not at all like laying on rocks.
What do negative ions do?
A lot of scientific research has been done about the benefits of negative ions as well as the problem we face with positive ion poisoning in our homes and offices, as well as the environment.
Negative ions give you a molecular level massage, changing the vibration of all the cells in your body. Negative ions are odorless, tasteless, and invisible molecules that are found in abundance in certain environments such as forests, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost energy, and boost the immune system.
Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy,” says Pierce J. Howard, PhD, author of The Owners Manual for the Brain: Everyday Applications from Mind Brain Research and director of research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte, N.C.

***Remember to stay hydrated while using the Biomat.***
Organ Transplants –
Recipients who have had any type of organ transplant (Kidney, Heart, Liver, etc) should not use the Biomat. After an organ transplant, patients will need to take immunosuppressant (anti-rejection) drugs to help prevent their immune system from attacking, or rejecting, the new organ. The use of the Biomat’s Far Infrared Rays increases immune system function, which will tell your body to attack the new organ.
External Pacemaker –
We recommend anyone who uses an external pacemaker that they should not use the Biomat.
Renal or Kidney Failure –
We recommend anyone who has Renal or Kidney failure that they should not use the Biomat. The use of the Biomat increases circulation of the blood, which may increase the blood flow to the kidneys causing stress.
Use with Caution:
Heat Sensitive MS –
We recommend anyone with Heat Sensitive MS to use the Biomat with no heat and negative ions only. Anyone with other types of MS can use the Biomat at any setting.
Radiation Therapy/Chemotherapy –
We recommend anyone that has currently received radiation treatments or chemotherapy to use the Biomat with negative ions only. Consult your physician before using the Biomat with any heat settings.
Brain Tumor –
We recommend anyone with a brain tumor to use the Biomat with negative ions only. Consult your physician before using the Biomat with any heat settings.
Bypass Surgery –
We recommend anyone who has undergone bypass surgery to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). The use of the Biomat increases circulation of the blood, which can cause normal blood vessels to expand. Some people who have gone through bypass surgery, experience discomfort since their blood vessels can’t expand.
We recommend anyone who uses a pacemaker to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). The use of the Biomat increases circulation of the blood, which can cause an increase in heart beat. Some people who use a pacemaker, experience discomfort since their heart beat is being controlled.
We recommend anyone with Diabetes to use the Biomat on low heat only (95F-113F). Diabetics’ skin is weak, which can cause low heat burn from the use of the Biomat. Once the skin is damaged, it may be difficult to recover.
High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) –
We recommend people with chronically high blood pressure (hypertension) to use the Biomat with caution before and after use, and on low heat only (95F-113F). Sudden changes in body temperature and/or weather temperature may cause an increase in blood pressure.
Newborn Babies –
We recommend parents with newborns to wait until their baby is at least 6 months old before using the Biomat on low heat only (95F-104F) or negative ions only.
We recommend that infants using the Biomat should use it on low heat only (95F-113F) and with adult supervision. If temperature is too high for the child, the temperature can’t be controlled without an adult. Please use with caution.
We recommend women in their pregnancy to use the Biomat on low to medium heat (95F-131F).
Surgical Implants –
Recipients of Titanium, Metal, Ceramic, or Plastic implants can use the Biomat. Surgical implants generally reflect infrared rays and are not heated by an infrared heat system. Anyone who experiences pain in those areas should check with their physician.
Silicon implants may be warmed by infrared rays. While silicon may deform at very high temperatures (+392°F or +200°C), it should not be adversely affected by gentile infrared energy. However, it is advised that you consult your doctor before use.
Pain should not be experienced when using the Biomat. However, the infrared heat will go to areas of disease or discomfort so some people may perceive this as pain and others as a sensation. If pain is persistent, discontinue use.
If there are any worsened conditions when using the Biomat, discontinue use. Some temporary symptoms may occur, which can be attributed to the detoxification and healing process. For more information, please see the stages of improvement in Richway’s Ions and Infrared Rays booklet.
