The BioMat is a 17 layer pad which lies on top of a massage table, your home mattress or even the floor. It converts electricity through a computerized control panel produced by Texas Instruments, through Kurare super fabrics and Amethyst Quartz Crystals to produce Far Infrared Rays (FIR) & Negatively Charged Ions. It uses non-invasive thermo-therapy waves to access deep tissues. FIR were discovered by NASA to be the safest, most beneficial light wave. In the case of the BioMat, these rays can penetrate 6-8 inches into the innermost recesses of the body, stimulating repair and regeneration of nerves and muscle tissue layers. FIR improve circulation without increasing blood pressure. The BioMat also produces Negative Ions: natures energizer, which deliver a "molecular level massage" as one NASA scientist described it. This accelerates and deepens all healing and cleansing processes. It balances pH by decreasing acidity and is considered to be THE Master Power Switch which activates the body's entire cellular communication system, making every function of the body work better!
