Bio Mat Facts
An amethyst blanket, or bio mat, is a staple in any spa that truly cares about the well-being and stress-reducing aid to their clients. A bio mat is a professional wellness tool utilized for several years, though has not had its time in fame yet. It should, as what an amethyst blanket can do for you on multiple scales is no small feat.
The bio mat is ideal for people seeking relief from pain and muscular and joint problems. As cool as it may sound to have a blanket of glittering purple gemstones (how Instagram fab!) over you during a massage, that is not the case of a bio mat. What it actually does is combine the healing power of amethyst stones, far infrared, and negative ions that is laid underneath you on the massage table.
For infrared is the warm energy in humans, animals, and plants, though emitted from the sun. Far infrared is harnessed electronically in the amethyst blanket and raises the body’s surface temperature, allowing the higher heat to increase circulation by promoting dilation of the blood vessels, as well as improve flexibility.
Negative ions are mostly found in air purifiers, known for sterilizing the air from pollen, dust, bacteria, and other environmental air impurities. It also has wonderful health benefits, which many are unaware of, such as increasing oxygen levels in the blood, restoring healthy pH levels in the blood, increasing metabolism, and strengthening the immune system. Both of these energies are added to the intensity and healing powers of amethyst to create a bio mat that can bring you relief from nearly every corner of your body.
An amethyst blanket can have purple in its fabric coloring, however, the bio mat is revolutionary in that it can do the following for your health and wellbeing with the three powerful components of amethyst, negative ions, and infrared therapy:
- Improved immune system function
- Better circulation and cardiovascular function
- Pain relief
- Increased metabolism
- Weight Control
- Relief from joint pain and stiffness
- Lowered stress and fatigue levels
- Improved skin health
- Balance throughout the body
There are many layers that make up an amethyst blanket and all promote the improvement of your body in many ways. Believe it or not, there are 17 layers of a bio mat! Silk cotton, concentrated ceramics, Japanese super fiber, and semiconductor heating plates are just a few of these impressive layers. They all work to perfectly target negative ions, amethyst, and far infrared rays to penetrate your skin and bring you lasting relief and better bodily functions.
