The Amethyst/Tourmaline Biomat Professional is our flagship product. It was designed for use in a professional environment, but is the preferred mat for many households. Originally, it was designed for massage therapists, so the size of the mat fits on a massage table. It turns out that is a perfect size for most people. The Professional Biomat gives a full body treatment. The tuned infrared warmth envelops the entire body. It is relaxing and therapeutic.

In February 2015, a new quantum layer containing peach and grape seeds was added as found in the Quantum Energy Pads. Peach and grape seeds happen to resonate at the optimum frequency of the human body. Using an organic compound extracted from these seeds, along with amethyst powder, a field is created that assists the body to come to a more healthy frequency.

In January 2023, the Professional Biomat added tourmaline to increase negative ion output. The electrically generated negative ion technology was removed.

4. Biomat Acupuncture

We have had wonderful reports from several acupuncturists who have been using the Bio-Mat in their practice. The Bio-Mat seems to augment the acupuncture treatments. This may be the result of the infrared, negative ions, or the amethyst conditioning the subtle energy. Below is a sample of testimonials we have received.

Biomat Professional

The Bio-Mat has been received so well by my clients and all but two use it for every treatment.

I have it on at the beginning of the day and adjust the temperature for each person, although I have observed that it mostly stays at the upper range of middle. My clients rest more deeply with the needles in and several have reported that pain levels with arthritis have decreased.

10. Biomat Reviews

The Original Crystal Infrared Biomat The Biomat is the orginal crystal infrared mat. It is manufactured by Richway International, a company founded in 1997, and based in Honolulu, Hawaii. The founders of the company observed healing effects from individuals spending time in a jade and amethyst mine they owned in Korea. To better understand what was happening, they brought scientists in to review the situation. The scientists determined the healing effects were brought about by the infrared coming from the crystals. After this review by the scientists, the founders wanted to replicate the healing effects observed in the mine through the construction of a heated crystal mat. Originally, jade was used as the crystal, but later amethyst, with its higher transmissivity of infrared, was found to be superior.

16. What is a Biomat

The Biomat is a mat that is used for therapy or sleeping. The technology delivers a tuned frequency of infrared passing through gemstone quality crystals. The crystals modulate the waveform making the infrared energy more bio-available. The human body emits and receives a specific range of infrared. The Biomat is tuned to that range. We call this a crystal infrared.

18. Biomat for Back Pain

One of the primary uses of a Biomat is to relieve pain. From our early experience with the Biomat we have noticed a number of people that have had success with reducing their back pain. We have seen changes in as little as 15 minutes on medium temperatures. When relief is given, that relief can last for a few hours to a few days. What we notice is when people begin to sleep on the Biomat their back pain seems to reduce over time. The question we had is whether the pain reduction see is the result of warming the tissue or something else. We know that the heat will stay in the body after a session with the Biomat, but what happens over time? We believe that it is not just the infrared heat that reduces the pain, but the Biomat energy seems to help the body repair itself. In some cases we see significant changes anywhere from 30 days to six months. Girl Back Pain
