The Biomat 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.
An infrared heat source was chosen for the Biomat. The question then, is what form of infrared is most beneficial to the body, and how should the Biomat be tuned? The founders of Richway’s first thought was to produce infrared in the human infrared spectrum, which is between 3 and 50 micron wavelength, with a peak around 9.4 microns. They reviewed a study of mothers putting their hands on their children when they were in pain. The researchers found that the mothers were more effective than the current pain medications in reducing pain. They discovered when mothers were healing their children, they emitted 6.5 micron wavelength infrared from the palms of their hands. That gave Richway the clues on how to tune the Biomat to be most effective. Once they tuned the output toward the 6.5 micron wavelength , they noticed dramatic improvements in healing effects. The frequencies of infrared emitted by the Biomat are what make it unique. As you review other infrared mats and saunas, you will find the frequencies are not same. The Biomat produces a more comfortable tuned heat that better resonates with the body.
In our review of various healing technologies, we have found the Biomat to be one of the more effective devices to assist the body to achieve a higher state of health and vitality. People report increased relaxation, pain reduction, improved circulation, boosting of the immune system, and elevation of the mood. Transformative effects are experienced when people begin sleeping on Biomats. The Biomat can transform lives.
Many owners of saunas and other infrared mats later purchase a Biomat. After they experience the difference with the amethyst infrared Biomat they are sold.See the article on "How to chose a biomat" to review the various Richway Biomats available.
