BioMat Stretching

BioMat Stretching Sessions

Improve flexibility, posture and range of motion

BioMat Stretching is an effective way to improve flexibility and increase range of motion. Stretching has been shown to improve circulation, reduce muscle tension, prevent injury, decrease pain, increase lymph flow and eliminate toxins. Our clients experience many of these benefits after one 30 minute session.

Using targeted stretching techniques and the BioMat, our stretch practitioners personally assist you in executing each stretch. We recognize that each muscle in the body connects to the extensive network of muscles and nerves and therefore take a holistic approach to stretching.

For maximum benefit, stretches are performed on the BioMat. If you have a pacemaker or other medical device, you will need a medical release from your doctor prior to using the BioMat.  If you do not wish to use the BioMat, a stretching session will still provide many of the same benefits.

Prepare for your first session:

All equipment is provided. Wear comfortable clothing, such as workout clothes. Once you arrive, you will remove your socks, shoes and all jewelry. You will most likely sweat so feel free to bring a small towel and water to stay hydrated.

Amethyst BioMat

Supporting the systems of the body

The Amethyst BioMat is an FDA licensed medical device that combines state of the art far infrared light and negative ion technology with the healing powers of amethyst crystals.

Unlike an electric blanket, the pad does not get hot when it is turned on. However, if you lie down on it, it warms the inside of the body and the part of the pad making contact with your skin gets warm. The far infrared rays penetrate up to 6 inches into the body. Therefore, these rays not only benefit muscles on the surface of the body but all cells, including blood vessels, lymph glands and nerves in the deepest parts of the body.

Increases blood circulation and strengthens the cardiovascular system. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation.

Improves the immune system. Far infrared ray’s deep heat raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. As the body works to combat the fever, your body’s immune system is strengthened. Combined with the elimination of toxins and waste produced by the intense sweating, your overall health and resistance to disease is increased.

Removes Toxins. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built up toxins and waste.  Daily sweating can help detoxify your body as its rids itself  of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals, as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid and cholesterol.

In her article, 16 Science-Backed Health Benefits of Far-Infrared Rays, Helen Nichols explains how toxins become trapped in the body and outlines the process by which far-infrared rays help the body to release these toxins. Toxic gasses and heavy metals become encapsulated by water molecules and trapped in the body. Far-infrared rays, at specific micron ranges, are able to weaken the atomic bonds of the water molecules and release the toxins from the body as the water evaporates.

Relieves Pain. The deep heat of the BioMat helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing, relief and healing to muscles and soft tissue injuries.  Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles, so they recover faster.


Temperature Settings

The BioMat can be calibrated to address specific health issues

No Heat  This setting allows you to benefit from negative ion therapy and amethyst conduction without using the far infrared rays at the same time.  This setting is ideal for mood enhancement, mental alertness, mental stimulation and general detoxification.

95 – 104 F Heat  Enables negative ion therapy plus gentle broad spectrum cooling.  The setting aid to combat insomnia, encourage deep relaxation and deliver long term regenerative health.  Benefits also include cellular renewal, improved energy flow and migraine reduction or elimination.

113 – 122 F Heat  Provides negative ion therapy plus subtle, warming far infrared penetration for a range of health benefits.  This setting is ideal for encouraging relaxation and increased flexibility and healing muscle joint or spinal injuries.  This setting also soothes asthma and allergy symptoms, encourages respiratory health and may help stabilize blood pressure, blood sugar and glandular functions.

131 – 140 F Heat   Provides negative ion therapy plus deep penetrating heat to alleviate pain, encourage relaxation and address chronic conditions associated with stress, tension and anxiety.  This setting also encourages better circulation, improved hormonal balance and increased sexual vitality.

149 – 158 F Heat Offers maximum sauna-like far infrared ray therapeutics designed to purify and detoxify.  This setting is ideal for relieving pain, stress, low immunity conditions such as flu, cold and overall low energy and even maladies such as jet lag and hangover. Used regularly this setting reduces body toxicity and improves conditions caused by viral, cystic, acidic and endemic malfunction.  This setting also increases metabolism and flush fat and cellular waste from the system.
