The Amethyst Richway BioMat offers far-infrared heat, negative ions and amethyst crystals for a deep soothing heat. Far infrared heat penetrates into the body about 7 inches! The amethyst crystal channels are laid over 17 different bonded materials that work to conduct a soothing heat and block EMF’s.
I have the full-length size (28″ x 74″) on my massage table to offer during sessions. The heat that the BioMat provides is essential for clients with tense or injured muscles and also for my fertility and reproductive clients. Cold in the body is like ice, it’s hard, contracting and motionless. Fibroids are a sign of cold, blocked energy in the pelvis and according to ancient traditions infertility can also be a cold condition. Read more about keeping your womb warm here.
I also own the mini BioMat (17″ x 33″) that I use at home to either sleep, stretch and relax on (I actually have it against my back right now as I write this). I’ve always wanted radiant floor heating, but this is even better because I can move the BioMat to where I want it, plus I get the addition of far infrared rays and negative ions. I truly feel like a cat basking in the sun.
My personal experience using the BioMat has been stress reduction and warmth on cold nights and relief from back pain. It’s amazing how quickly it has worked for my back pain relief, on average 10 or 15 minutes on the mat will do it for me. I’ve also slept with it at the foot of my bed to put my feet on when I had an ankle injury or to warm my cold feet. I also use the BioMat to boost my immune system. As soon as I start to feel sick, I crank up the BioMat and pile on the blankets. In fact, you can crank the Biomat up to the highest level and use it as a sauna. The heat range is from No Heat (just negative ions for mood enhancement and mental alertness) to 158 degrees Fahrenheit (for colds, flu, pain, and stress). And a range of other temperatures for specific needs. Read more about settings here. I have the mini on the lowest level (104 degrees) during sleep and around 113 or 122 for relaxing and pain relief. It actually gets pretty toasty at 122 and seems to be a favorite with most clients.
Here is a close up of the mini below so you can see the amethyst and tourmaline crystal channels through the little window. The crystal channels run throughout the BioMat. The mini can be on a chair (it conforms easily to fit in on a chair), the floor or in a bed. It can even be used in a car using an inverted that you can pick up at an auto supply store.

The far infrared rays from the BioMat encourages you body to secrete Heat Shock Protein (HSP). HSP is a protein which your body secretes and plays an important role in producing endorphins and enhancing the immune system.
Dr. Rhonda Patrick discusses how “hyperthermic conditioning” causes adaptations that increase athletic endurance (by increasing plasma volume and blood flow to heart and muscles) and muscle mass by boosting levels of heat shock proteins and growth hormone. She also discusses the profound effects of hyperthermic conditioning on the brain including cognitive function.
