What are Far Infrared Rays (FIR) and Where Do They Come From?

FIR or Long Wave Infrared Rays are the safest and most beneficial light waves for the human body, from the sun. FIR is a form of energy that is part of the electro-magnetic light frequency of sunlight that is not visible to the human eye. FIR Technology was first brought to us by nature herself. All living things emit FIR. Traditionally we’ve gotten our daily dose of FIR from sunlight. However, most of us being indoors or in the car, it is getting much harder for us to get our healthy does of FIR from the Sun .

The first research on isolating, or mimicking Far I nfrared Light was done through NASA in the 1960’s. NASA in the early 1980s concluded that infrared therapy would be an ideal way to stimulate cardiovascular function during long space missions.

Long Wave Infrared Rays (FIR) not only warm our bodies, but they stimulate various bodily functions. They can make our bodies feel fully charged. When Far infrared rays are beamed into the body, they are absorbed by the body and they resonate through it, similar to the sound and energy waves of a bell when it is struck.

As the Infrared energy penetrates, it safely and gently heats the tissues and blood supply within an affected area. Your body’s natural response to this increased temperature is to maintain a condition of homeostasis – balanced environment or state of equilibrium throughout the body. To do this your body responds with a rapid increase in blood flow to the area. Your blood vessels actually increase in diameter, a change called vasolidation, and allow oxygen and nutrients in the bloodstream to pass through the walls more easily—and to start to regenerate the damaged cells and tissues. In the same way, toxic substances in the damaged cells can also pass back into the bloodstream more easily to be filtered and eliminated by organs such as the kidneys, lungs and digestive tract. As the damaged or inflamed area receives this increased supply of blood, the cells are nourished and cleansed and you experience actual reduction in pain.

How Are Far Infrared Rays Created in the Bio-Mat?

The Bio-Mat Amethyst™ features the patented Kurare Super Fiber from Japan. (U.S.F.D.A. Patent No. 1386560). The method of generating FIR through the Bio-Mat Amethyst™ is accomplished by:

  • First putting pulses of energy (DC Current) through this patented carbon ceramic material, this process creates Infrared Rays that the human body can absorb.
  • As the FIR passes through the Amethyst crystals, the crystals elongate the wave length and emit a Long Wave FIR (8-12 Microns) that penetrates 5-7 inches into the body.
  • The Bio-Mat Amethyst™ comes with an external control box where the AC current is converted to DC current, which is bio-electrically compatible with the human body. This advanced technology protects your body from the harmful AC current.
  • Other Infrared Saunas and devices utilize 120V AC Current which has been proven to be highly detrimental to human health, by disturbing the human biological field.

    The BioMat™ works with remote computer technology that generates Far-Infrared Light Waves and Negative Ions. The Soft Touch Control System has the most advanced I.C. Chip, which cuts off harmful Electromagnetic Waves. The remote computer signals are conducted into the Amethyst crystal bed through a high technology messaging system., All energies pass through an Electromagnetic Wave Interceptor (EMI), which blocks any harmful EMF from entering the Biomat and our human energy system.

This makes it perfect for preparing the body for deep bodywork, adjustments, and exercise. It is also possible to do your treatment on the Bio-Mat on the lower green settings. The Bio-Mat Professional perfectly fits onto a massage table.
The Amethyst Biomat Are the temperature settings adjustable?
The Amethyst Biomat Yes, you can adjust the heat between gentle and subtle to a deep sauna heat by the use of the controller box. Most sessions are done on the buttons ranging from 95 degrees to 112 degrees. For deeper detoxification sessions, such as in spa treatments, or for severe pain, you may want to increase the temperature into the red, which goes up to 140 degrees. The highest setting creates a sauna effect, which produces a very deep and therapeutic sweat and is helpful in weight loss and heavy metal detoxification.
The Amethyst Biomat How long should a session on the Bio-Mat last?
The Amethyst Biomat On the lower settings, people can safely lay on the mat for up to several hours, but if you are doing a higher temperature treatment, limit it to one hour. Always start the client on the lower green settings for a session or two before starting them on higher temperatures because it can be too dramatically detoxifying to start off on the higher temperatures.
The Amethyst Biomat Why is Amethyst crystal better than Jade?
The Amethyst Biomat Amethyst has been found in research to be more effective than jade in projecting the far infrared rays deeper into the body, so the benefits are more far reaching. Amethyst also produces Far Infrared Rays. These rays revitalize the biological function of your cells to relieve neuralgia, backaches, and arthritis. Amethyst has been deemed as "nature’s tranquilizer" by many health practitioners because of its effectiveness in relaxing not only the mind, but also the nervous system.
