I am so excited that PBTs Biomat will be arriving on Tuesday 5/22. This is a crushed amethyst biomat that uses far infrared heat to release toxins, improve circulation and melt away pains, amoung any other benefits. The mat can be combined with a massage or any other bodywork service or as a stand alone treatment. Come visit the biomat at PBTs !!!

Biomat Benefits include:

1. Improves Circulation & Cardiovascular Function

Far Infrared Rays raise body temperature, warming the blood and expanding the blood vessels. There is an increase in peripheral blood flow and volume, resulting in improved circulation and heart function.

2. Improves Immune Functions

Far Infrared Ray's (FIR) deep heat raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial and healthy fever. As the body works to combat the fever, your immune system is activated and strengthened, which in turn produces a detoxification of harmful toxins and waste products. With the continual use of the Amethyst Bio mat, your overall health and resistance to disease can be improved greatly.

3. Relieves Pain

The deep heat of Far Infrared 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 may recover faster.

4. Burns Calories

As you relax in the gentle heat of the Far Infrared, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. According to the 8/7/81 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association report, a single 30 minute far infrared session burns as many calories as rowing or jogging for 30 minutes. This can be helpful for disabled persons who are unable to move, as well as those looking to increase metabolism and burn calories via alternative means.

5. Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness

Far Infrared heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many kinds of arthritis and musculo-skeletal diss. In addition, it has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness, and many other musculo-skeletal ailments. Stiffness, aches, and soreness that come with aging can be reduced or eliminated by using Far Infrared heat therapy (FIR).

6. Reduces Stress and Fatigue

The gentle warmth of the Far Infrared Rays help to soothe nerves and relax tight or knotted muscles. The end result is reduced stress and improved energy. Receiving massages while on the Biomat can be especially beneficial, as the far infrared heat warms and relaxes the muscles to better receive the healing touch of your practitioner.

7. Improves Skin

Far Infrared and Negative Ions penetrate the skin deeply, helping to cleanse impurities from the skin and lymph. In addition, exfoliation is greatly enhanced by the far infrared, rapidly removing dead skin cells. Increased circulation draws your skin?s own natural nutrients to the surface, rejuvenating its health and appearance.

8. Assists in elimination

Far Infrared rays helps to cleanse the body in several important ways. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands and lymph system, releasing built up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help cleanse your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid, cholesterol, and uric acid. In addition to sweating, far infrared is capable of mobilizing toxins and acidic waste, allowing for their removal via several other bodily systems.

Health Benefits of Direct Conduction Negative Ions

1. The Truth about “Negative Ions”

Negative ions have a positive effect on people. Positive ions have a negative effect on people. An atom that has one of it's normal, orbiting electrons removed is called a positive ion. An atom with an extra electron added is called a negative ion. A bit confusing, no? It’s a misnomer that we can thank Benjamin Franklin for. Back in his time, electrons (with a "negative" charge) and atoms were not understood correctly. So we're stuck with the 18th century terminology, and that is why the good ions are called "Negative Ions."

2. Blood Alkalization and Blood Purification

When negative ions are applied to the body, the calcium and sodium circulating in the blood are ionized. This changes the blood pH into an alkaline state and has an overall alkalizing effect on the body. The normal pH of human arterial blood is approximately 7.40 (normal range is 7.35 – 7.45), a weak alkaline solution.

Blood that has a pH below 7.35 is considered acidic, while blood pH above 7.45 is alkaline. Proper blood pH is essential for optimal health. It has been noted that the negative ions applied to the body are helpful in regulating pH.

3. Reviving the Cell

When the amount of negative ions in the blood increases, there is an increase in inter-cellular communication. This occurs as the cell membranes are opened, and cellular metabolism is facilitated. As a result, there is an increase in cellular nutrient uptake and cellular hydration. In addition, cellular waste materials are more efficiently excreted. With the increase in cellular metabolism, optimal cell function is rapidly revived. For more information, research the Nobel Prize in Physiology (1991) for the discovery of the ionic channel.

4. Diseases Associated with Ion Deficiencies

Indoor environment, city living, auto exhaust, exposure to electronic devices, EMF’s (electro-magnetic fields), and environmental pollution all result in your body's increased exposure to unhealthy "positive" ions. This results in a physiological imbalance, which may have detrimental health consequences. Too few negative ions in our body can cause a number of diseases. Some of the health problems associated with an imbalance of ions in the body include: anemia, allergies, shoulder pain, lumbago, rheumatism, neuralgia, headaches, kidney problems, imbalanced autonomic nervous system function, insomnia, and fatigue. By using the Amethyst Bio mat, your exposure to streams of "negative" ions can aid in creating balance for your body to counteract the unhealthy "positive" ions in your environment.
