User Manual
The following section contains an overview of the three components of the Biomat, why this
unique combination is so state of the art in its therapeutic applications, and the various
features and benefits that the Biomat offers.
Biomat Basics – The Trilogy
The Biomat’s state of the art technology synergizes three components, offering a unique
combination of therapeutic applications to support both your body and mind on the path
to a higher level of well-being.
 Negative Ion generation. Negative ions open ion channels that
optimize cellular communication and support all bodily functions in
working better. Ionization of the body alkalizes and purifies the blood,
charges the immune system, and supplies antioxidants that neutralize
free radicals.
 Far Infrared Light generation (FIR): FIR is nature’s most
healing light. FIR helps the nervous system relax. FIR’s radiant heat and
light penetrate 5 to 7 inches into the body, allowing for deep muscle and
tissue therapy while soothing nerves, increasing circulation, assisting in
detoxification, reducing pain and stress, and balancing hormones.
 Amethyst Crystals: Amethyst is a superconductor crystal. It
delivers the steadiest, most absorbable, long wave Far Infrared Rays for
healing. Amethyst is known to increase stamina and endurance, support
deep meditation, is useful for emotional balancing, and enhancing
intuition. Amethyst has been shown to be supportive of the body’s ability
to release addiction and transform lower vibrations into higher resonance

Features and Health Benefits of the Biomat
Application / Feature
Relieves pain
Explanation / Application
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 recover faster.
Helps to burn calories &
Control weight
As you relax in the gentle heat of Far Infrared your
body is actually hard at work, producing sweat, pumping blood and
burning calories. According to the Journal of the American Medical
Association, a single 30 minute Far Infrared session, burns as many
calories as rowing or jogging for 30 minutes.
Eases joint pain &
Stiffness
Far Infrared heat therapy is widely used to treat
patients suffering from many kinds of arthritis and muscularskeletal disorders. In addition, it has been proven effective in the
treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint
stiffness and many other muscular-skeletal aliments. Stiffness,
aches and soreness that come with aging are reduced
or eliminated using FIR.
Reduces Stress &
Fatigue
The gentle warmth of the far infrared rays helps to soothe nerves,
relax tight or knotted muscles, and calm your entire nervous
system.
Improves skin
The Biomat's Far Infrared and negative ions penetrate
the skin deeply, helping to detoxify 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
your skin's health and appearance.
Alkalizes &
Purifies the Blood
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. Proper blood pH is essential for optimal health. It has
been noted that the negative ions applied to the body are helpful at
regulating blood pH.
Revives cells
As negative ions in the blood increase, there is an increase in intercellular communication. This arises as the cell membranes are
opened, cellular metabolism is facilitated, and 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 ionic channel.
Acceptance in the
medical community
The Biomat is approved by the FDA as a medical device
number #2954299

Application / Feature
Explanation / Application
Alkalizes body
An alkaline body is the basis for good health.
Overly acidic systems can be lethargic, agitated, aggressive, etc.
Most diseases are rooted in an acidic body.
Pregnancy
Low back pain relief
After birth recovery
Induces sweating with
sauna action
Detoxification
Clarifies skin
Burns calories
Work in conjunction with a cleanse.
Menopause / Hormonal
Balances the action of the thyroid and lymph glands.
Post traumatic stress &
Trauma recovery
Negative ions relax the nervous system. Infra Red
light signals the nervous system that it is safe to move out of stuck
“fight or flight.”
Removes bodily toxins &
assists in detoxification
Far Infrared helps to detoxify 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 detoxify 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 mobilizes toxins and acidic
waste, allowing their removal via several other bodily systems.
Improves Circulation &
Cardiovascular function
Far Infrared Waves raise body temperature, thereby
warming the blood and expanding the blood vessels.
The increase in peripheral blood flow and volume results
in improved circulation and heart function.
Improves immune system
function
Far Infrared Ray's deep heat raises your body
temperature, inducing an artificial and healthy fever.
As the body works to combat the fever, your body's
immune system is activated and strengthened.
Combined with the removal of harmful toxins and
waste products, your overall health and resistance to
disease is greatly improved.
Diseases Associated with Ion Deficiencies
Indoor environment, city living, cars, exposure to electronic devices, EMF's (electromagnetic fields), and environmental pollution all result in increased positive ions in one's body, tilting the
ratio of ions towards the positive. 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.

Biomat Set-Up Guide
1. Choose your optimal location to set up. (On your bed,
couch, the floor, a massage table)
2. Lay the Biomat flat with the crystal side up.
3. Plug control box into the Biomat.(Keep control box away
from head.)
4. Plug control box into the wall.
5. Turn it on. (There is a black master power switch on the side
of the control box. The Mini Biomat has a button on the
front of the control box.)
6. Queen and King Biomats: The queen and king size Biomats
have the option of selecting different settings on the left and
right side of the bed. Press power on and select what setting
you’d like by pressing the buttons with arrows on them.
7. A timer on the controller allows you to select how many
hours that the Biomat will stay on.
8. Place white cotton cover on top of Biomat. This creates more
reflection power. Additionally, you can place a sheet,
comforter, sheepskin, or featherbed on top of the Biomat to
make it more comfortable. Anything that is made of natural
fibers.
9. There is no need to wait for the Biomat to heat up. It will
warm up more effectively once you are touching the Biomat.
10. The red Negative Ion lights will blink on and off. These
lights are not illuminated all the time. Your Biomat is still
working perfectly even when they are off.
If the green EMI light is not illuminated try flipping the plug
in the wall.

Helpful hints and precautions:
While the Biomat is safe and easy to use, there are a few precautions and helpful hints
that you should be aware of to maximize its effectiveness and keep you protected.
• Hydration! Increase water intake before and after sessions.
This is very important to maintain optimum health when using
the Biomat. Do not let yourself get dehydrated. The healing
effects of the Biomat will be increased with proper hydration.
•
Start slowly at low settings and gradually increase duration and temperature.
•
If you have metal rods or pins: Do not go above the green settings (95F – 104F),
unless that part of your body is off the mat. In that case, you can enjoy the benefits of
higher settings.
•
Pacemakers: Those with pacemakers should stay in green settings (95F – 104F), since
higher settings may over stimulate blood circulation.
•
Those who are pregnant: What to be aware of when pregnant and using the Biomat is
not to overheat your body. Others have reported that it helped to relieve back pain or
calm down for better rest. To be on the precautious side, stay in green (95F – 104F)
or low gold settings (up to 113F ) for short 15 minute sessions.
•
If you are on medication: Be sure to check in with your medical practitioner at regular
intervals for assessment.
•
Do not keep your head on the Biomat for long periods of time at very high settings, as
this will make you groggy.
•
When on the Biomat, cover yourself with a natural fiber blanket. This will increase
therapeutic benefits by retaining your body’s heat.
•
Trust that if it feels good, AND you are well hydrated, you are safe. Your body will tell
you when your session is done.
EVERYONE DRINK PLENTY OF IONIZED WATER before and after
Biomat sessions, just as indicated for sitting in a sauna. Water is
essential to both rehydrate and remove toxins. LISTEN TO YOUR
BODY!!!
If you become dehydrated, take a few days off from using the mat
until you feel re-hydrated.

Contraindications:
If you currently have a medical condition, please always consult with your physician or
health practitioner before using the Amethyst Bio-Mat.
Be aware of heating up your head. It is best to use a pillow with the Biomat. If you have neck
or jaw tension you may put your head or cheek directly on the Biomat for 10 to 20 minutes.
Avoid falling asleep for extended periods of time with out a pillow.
PRESCRIPTION DRUGS:
If you are using prescription drugs, check with your physician or pharmacist for possible
changes in the drug’s effect due to an interaction with infrared energy. If you are taking
corticosteroids, you may experience some redness of the skin. Should you experience
redness, we recommend that you discontinue the use until you have completed your
medication.
CERTAIN AILMENTS:
According to some authorities, it may be inadvisable to raise the core temperature of people
with adrenal suppression, systemic lupus erythematosus, or multiple sclerosis. Yet FIR has
been used with good results with Lupus. Consult your physician or alternative healing
practitioner. People with MS may do better using a Jade Biomat. It has a more cooling effect
and a softer energy.
JOINT PROBLEMS:
If a person has a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours or
until the hot and swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may
respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind. Vigorous heating is strictly contraindicated
in cases of enclosed infections be they dental, in joints, or in any other tissues.
SURGICAL IMPLANTS:
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared
rays and are not heated by an infrared heat system. Stay below 110 degrees. Nevertheless, a
person should consult his or her surgeon before receiving such therapy. Certainly infrared
therapy must be discontinued if a person experiences pain near any implants.
PACEMAKERS:
Generally OK at 1-2 lowest heat settings. Always check with physician first. `1
SILICONE:
Silicone does absorb infrared energy. Implanted silicone or silicone prostheses for nose or
ear replacement may be warmed by infrared rays. Since silicone melts at over 200 degrees
Celsius, it should not be adversely affected by an infrared heat system, however. It is still
advised that a person checks with his or her surgeon to be certain.
MENSTRUATION - SUGGESTION:
Heating of the low-back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily
increase menstrual flow. Once a woman is aware that this is occurring, she can choose to
allow herself to experience this short-term effect without worry. Or she may simply avoid
using an infrared heat source at that time in her cycle. For the majority of women, Far
8
Infrared Energy massage helps to relieve and minimize the physical and emotional
discomfort experienced during the pre-menstrual and menstrual period.
HAEMOPHILIACS AND HEMORRHAGE:
Hemophiliacs and anyone predisposed to hemorrhage should avoid infrared usage or any
type of heating that would induce vasodilatation that can lead to the tendency to bleed.
Worsened Condition: Should any condition worsen with the use of an infrared heat system,
the use of the system should be discontinued.
PARALYZED OR LOSS OF FEELING:
Far Infrared Heat and Negative Ions can be a wonderful experience and assists however
because the body does not have a sensitivity to heat, please do not go on the heat settings of
the mat without supervision. You may not be able to feel when the heat is becoming too
much and the body needs to be moved to another position which happens naturally when
you can feel the heat. Be careful to avoid burning yourself: turn around frequently and have
someone else available who can feel your skin to make sure you are not too hot. We suggest
you do not go over 2 yellow lights for more than 20 minutes in these cases.
ELDERLY AND CHILDREN:
Should always be supervised, because they have lower tolerance for heat, or may forget to
turn the BioMat off.
PAIN, DISCOMFORT, OR DEHYDRATION:
Pain should NEVER be experienced when using an infrared heat system. If one does, the use
of radiant heat is clearly inappropriate for the person at that time.
DETOXIFICATION:
If you are using the mat for detox from heavy metals or other toxins, mild symptoms may
occur, such as headaches. Please consult with a certified Health Practitioner for any detox
program.
Note : The Amethyst Bio-Mat can also be used without Far infrared heat: simply turn on.
Now you have only cooling negative ions!

Product Support:
Warranty – A full warranty is automatic upon purchase for one year. For the
second and third year warranty there is a small charge. Costs range between $80 280$. If you need to make a warranty claim, please contact the distributor who
sold you the BioMat and they will help you with your exchange or repair.
Common Question and Answers about the Biomat:
Can you put anything on top on the Biomat? Does it disrupt the
benefits?
You may put anything that is a natural fiber on the BioMat. For example a cotton
feather bed, sheep skin, cotton sheets, wool blankets, etc. This does not lessen the
effects of the BioMat.
However, synthetic fibers such as polyester or foam toppers are not recommended
as they can block some of the beneficial Far Infrared energy from penetrating your
body. Synthetic fibers can also counteract and neutralize the negative ions emitted
in the BioMat.
How long can I lay on it? How long is it safe to use it for?
You may safely lie on it indefinitely as long as you are well hydrated and keeping
your head on a pillow (the amethyst/tourmaline pillow is recommended.)
It is best to start off slow (10 minutes to a half hour) on the green setting for a
couple days and work your way up to 1 hour + sessions on the gold settings.
Eventually you may choose to sleep all night on the BioMat on a low green setting.
(If you fall asleep on the BioMat on higher than green, you will likely wake up in a
sweat, which can be uncomfortable, so best to keep it on the green if you will be
on it long-term.) There is no limit to how long you can be on the BioMat on the
green and low gold settings. Treat the higher settings (high gold and red) as
you would a sauna, being sure to drink lots of water and limit your time to 1 1.5 hours at a time since this setting usually stimulates a lot of sweating and
detoxification. It is generally recommended to do the high settings once a day,
but for deeper therapeutic uses, you may use it 3 -4 times a day in 1 hour
intervals.
Can I use it more than once a day? How long is safe to use it?
Yes, you may use it many times throughout the day. Some people enjoy using it 15
minutes every few hours. It is safe to use for extended amounts of time. It is
important to ease into it, listen to your body, and drink lots of water because your
10
body will be detoxifying during the process.
Can we combine it with other healing treatments?
The BioMat compliments many other modalities. Massages on the BioMat are
astounding. The BioMat is also a great compliment to rolfing, acupuncture,
chiropractic, facials, manicures, pedicures, dentistry, energy healing, reiki, pain,
etc.
What setting should I put it on for first time users?
The green settings or up to 2 yellows is a nice first time experience. It is good to
gauge how warm would be enjoyable and select your settings accordingly. Just
power on is only negative ions, which can have a cooling effect. As you select
higher settings you are choosing how much far infrared warmth you'd enjoy. The
high red settings are the sauna setting. Often used to detoxify and sweat.
Can I put my Biomat underneath my memory foam mattress?
No, you will block the benefits of the BioMat by putting it under your memory
foam mattress.
Can I put it on top of my bed? Can I put it on my coach? On the floor?
On a chair?
Yes, many people put their BioMats on top of their beds on a regular mattress.
You can put it under your hugger sheet to integrate it into your bed. Some people
place it on one side of the bed so they can alternate between the BioMat side and
the regular mattress. You can also lay the BioMat on the couch or on the floor. If
you are wanting to contour it into a chair, the Mini BioMat is the best option,
because the bigger sizes are designed to lay flat, but the Mini Biomat can bend.
Put natural fabric blanket in between the Biomat and temper-pedic mattress.
Is it ok to check as luggage on a plane?
Yes, the Biomat Professional and accessory pillow weighs under 50 pounds so you
may check it without and an over-weight charge. The Mini BioMat will also work
as a carry-on.
Using the BioMat is a wonderful way to avoid jet lag.
Is it ok for my animals to go on it?
Yes, animals love the BioMat. If they are going to be on it for long periods of time,
be sure to keep the settings on the green or low gold settings, as it can be difficult
11
to monitor their hydration on the higher levels. If you are using it therapeutically
for an animal and want them to be on the higher settings, consider using an oral
syringe to get extra water into them during the process.
Is it ok for my kids to go on it?
It is wonderful for kids. It can really settle down and soothe a cranky child. It's
best to keep them on the green and low gold settings, and there is no limit to how
long they can be on it. Be aware of not letting them sleep directly on it without a
pillow for more than 15 minutes or so to avoid overheating the head. Encourage
them to drink extra water to ensure they are hydrated. Sometimes when I feel they
have had enough and won’t drink water I slyly turn it off and they continue to feel
cozy.
Does it emit harmful EMFs? Is it like an electric blanket?
Some people worry about the correlation of Electro-Magnetic Field (EMF)
frequencies and the BioMat. The BioMat is registered with the FDA as a medical
device with 510k status. As such, the Biomat had to undergo numerous safety and
performance tests, including electro-magnetic field safety. Electro-magnetic
frequencies naturally exist in many things, even infrared rays. What makes an
EMF harmful is when the hertz level is less than one million. The infrared ray is 20
billion hertz, which is not harmful. Since the Biomat is an electrical device, the
manufacturer incorporated a feature into the mats that block 100% of harmful
EMFs caused by electricity. The Ac current is transformed into a Dc current
before it enters the Biomat. Then the Dc current pulses through a Kuare carbon
ceramic super fiber. Nasa discovered how to create far Infrared material so that
the astronauts could utilize the reflection of their own body heat to reflect with the
ceramic kurare super fiber with Dc pulses. This proved effective in keeping the
astronauts healthy, safe and warm in space. They released their patent to the
public and we use that technique to generate far Infrared rays.
Testimonials:
"As a researcher and promoter of quality health products, I am always searching
for the most effective. Personally, I am very electro-magnetic sensitive, which
limits my time and use of some wonderful products. What I found most interesting
with the Amethyst BioMat is that is seems my core resistance to electro-magnetics
is becoming stronger. I can go to the grocery store, use other electrical products,
sit at the computer and even on the phone much longer than before, which is a
true Godsend. Thank You!" ~ M.A. "
“I am stunned. There is NO EMF reading over the Biomat...none. I expected 110
AC EMF numbers of up to 50 milligauss from the power cord right up to where it
plugs into the pad...but then my Tri-Field meter reads ZERO over the mat itself.
12
This is a huge breakthrough and achievement. I've used several other Far Infrared
devices and later found out they are radiating enormous amounts of EMF right
into the people using them. But NONE comes from the BioMat. The heat in the
Biomat is evenly dispersed, too. There are no hot spots. This is simply a great
product.” ~ J.R.
Does the Mini Biomat work the same as the larger BioMats? Can I get
the same benefits?
Yes, the Mini Biomat has exactly the same settings as the bigger BioMats. You can
get the same benefits. The main advantage of the larger models is that they will
cover the entire body, which may be useful for certain therapeutic purposes.
However the Mini Biomat is great for wrapping around the knee.
Is it ok to put it on the high setting the first time I use it?
Many people think highest is best. This is not the case with the Biomat. Starting in
the green and lower gold range is a gentle way to begin exploring the benefits of
the Biomat.
How do I avoid getting dehydrated while on the Biomat?
Ideally, drink a big glass of ionized water before. Regular water is ok too. Sip
water during your session and drink extra water after your session. In the event
that you forget to keep hydrated, you may notice you feel anxious on the BioMat.
If that happens, it is best to take a break from the Biomat for a day or two and
drink lots of water (lemon juice squeezed in water is great too) so you can
rehydrate.
Can more than one person go on it at one time?
Yes, you may share the BioMat with others, and with pets too.
Can I sleep on it?
Yes, you can. Many people enjoy sleeping on the low green settings.
Can I wash the cotton pad cover?
Yes, the white cotton cover is washable. You may additionally cover the Biomat
with a cotton sheet or a towel when you do the sauna setting. There is also a
waterproof cover available for the Mini BioMat and the BioMat Professional.
Do the crystals hold the energy of the users? If so, how can I clear the
energy?
The Far Infrared Rays are pumping through the crystals. This ensures that energy
13
is not stagnating on the BioMat. If many people have used it you can turn it on
high for 15 minutes and clear the energy.
The Story of the Biomat with Calvin Kim (the inventor)
In September of 1996 the Kim's were in the jewelry business and came across an
opportunity to purchase a Korean Jade mine. The mine was being offered for six
million dollars, which was a reduction from the original price of twenty million.
Originally, the intention was to use the jade in their jewelry business. However,
that quickly changed as Calvin witnessed so many people coming to the jade mine
for therapeutic benefits. Everyday three to four hundred people were coming to sit
inside the jade mine. Calvin was so surprised!
That transaction truly changed the life path for Calvin and Jeanna Kim.
Although they invested in the mine strictly because of its value to the company, for
jewelry, they soon discovered they had many buyers seeking the jade in powder
form. The Kims learned that one medical device company – RichWay Korea – was
using the powder in the manufacturing of its medical mats. Curious, and
struggling with several of his own health challenges, Calvin tried one of the jade
mats and experienced first-hand the powerful health benefits the mat provided.
Realizing the sales potential of such a device, Calvin and Jeanna convinced their
jewelry company to invest in the struggling, under-marketed RichWay Korea.
Soon after, in 1997, the Kims took full ownership of the medical device company,
along with its laboratory, and RichWay International was born. From there they
launched a network marketing company to promote jade BioMat sales
internationally. In addition, they developed other products, the Alkal-life water
ionizer and Rejuvena facial system.
In the meantime, they spent years continually researching the infrared, negative
ion, and crystal technologies the BioMat utilizes. Initially, it was believed that the
health benefits of the BioMat came from the heat of the infrared technology. But
after three years of research, it was discovered that the main benefit was not from
heat, but rather from the “vibration energy” that the infrared ray provides. And so
our RichWay research department dove deep into studying the energy spectrum of
the healthiest and most natural frequencies for infrared and negative ions.
Some interesting statistics show that married couples live 7-9 years longer than
single people and couples have forty percent less medical issues. Because of this
RichWay developed infrared rays similar to the "vibration frequency" shared by
humans.
14
The main purpose of BioMat technology is to target the same energy frequency as
love that will naturally nurture and enhance our wellbeing. Yes, you heard it right
~ LOVE.
During the February 23rd teleconference, Calvin explains that the real hidden
power of the BioMat is these four things:
* Human Body Infra Ray
* Human Body Infra Ray Frequency
* Human Body Infra Ray Hertz
* 100 Milligauss Electro-magnetic Power - to increase circulation
Calvin continues to share information on the difference between infra ray heat and
surface heat. Surface heat is not always comfortable or best for the human body.
However, the type of infra ray heat the BioMat provides is specifically designed to
safely nurture and support the human body. For instance, when someone
submerges in hot water for 30 minutes their body temperature will rise. Then
when they get out of the water that body heat will start declining in 10 minutes.
Whereas someone that is on the BioMat infrared heat for 30 minutes, the infra ray
heat will remain in the body for more than 4 hours. This is the amazing difference
between the energy that infra ray versus surface heat provides!
Question and Answer with Calvin Kim (the inventor)
If you have high blood pressure and are advised not to use hot tubs,
can you use the BioMat?
In answering this, Calvin shares that he had high blood pressure and understands
the concern. When someone with high blood pressure gets into a hot tub the heat
raises body temperature and may cause the blood pressure and circulation to rise.
That said, the infra ray heat the BioMat generates is very different energy. The
infra ray penetrates the body like a fine massage and activates the mitochondria.
That is the one big difference. The infra ray is very gentle and will assist the
stability of blood pressure by activating mitochondria and safely regulating blood
circulation. Heat like that in a hot tub will not activate mitochondria and the blood
pressure will rise.
Why do we have amethyst and tourmaline in mini-BioMat and
Pillow?
The Professional BioMat design has a 10-15 inch negative ion panel. The MiniBioMat can only host a 3-5 inch negative ion panel. Tourmaline generates negative
15
ions and that is why it is in the Mini-BioMat and Pillow, to increase the negative
ions.
What is the difference between the Jade and Amethyst BioMat?
The human body is around 32 million hertz vibration. Jade is about 20 million
hertz vibration, which provides a gentle lower vibration. RichWay’s research team
discovered that Amethyst is closer to 32 million hertz, which is stronger than Jade
and closer to the vibration of the human body. Some people are very sensitive or
fragile and the Jade may work best for them. For example, a person with MS and
heat sensitivity may be more comfortable with the gentle vibration of the Jade
BioMat. Another with chronic back pain may benefit much more from the stronger
vibration of the Amethyst BioMat.
How are the negative ions generated?
Simply stated the technology is increase voltage, reduce speed for steady energy,
transfer to aluminum panel, then electrical discharge causes oxygen electron to
separate and releases to produce negative ion.
Calvin added, that was a good question, however most important question is: Why
we produce negative ion? The number one reason is for emotional support,
negative ions make us happy, and secondly, to reduce pain. Pain is an electrical
signal to the brain, which is a very strong positive ion. Therefore, when you are on
the BioMat the negative ions help with emotions and reduce pain.
Can the first infra ray setting be used to lower body temperature?
Yes. The first setting is 95 degrees, lower than our normal body temperature of 98
degrees.
Is there a difference in benefit from sleeping all night on the BioMat
and a 40 minute high heat session?
Yes, there is! The forty-minute high heat sessions are to produce HST (heat shock
protein), which helps improve the production of T-cells and the immune system.
Sleeping on the BioMat is very important, however you would only use a low
setting, like number 2 green (104 degrees). Remember, RichWay has done
extensive research and the infra rays, negative ions, and crystals in the BioMat
technology are designed to nurture and support us both emotionally and
physically. When you sleep on the BioMat, it is like being in the womb; very
comfortable and nurturing.
What do you recommend when someone say’s the BioMat is too
hard?
If you place a comforter underneath the BioMat it will provide more cushion when
laying on it.
Does synthetic clothing such as polyester affect the benefits of the
16
BioMat?
Yes. Do not wear synthetic clothing on the BioMat, instead wear cotton or natural
fibers for the best benefit.
Can you use sheepskin on the BioMat?
Yes, you can, however use natural organic material without synthetics. And, it
would be a good idea to use the BioMat cover over it to protect from any sweat
released.
Customer Testimonials
Below is a list of some of our customer’s favorite ways to use the Biomat, including
additional features and their applications. May you be inspired to find what best
suits you and your customer’s needs, health, and lifestyle.
Some of our customer’s favorite ways to use the Biomat:
• Once or twice a week, I like to do a sauna session. First, I take a shower, drink
two glasses of water, and put a natural fiber robe on. Then I lie on my Biomat
covered with a down comforter. It feels like a cocoon of light surrounds me and
I sweat for 30 minutes to an hour. After this, I drink two more glasses of water.
It is a powerful and invigorating detox. It is also great to do if you ever feel as
though you are getting sick since it will simulate a fever and charge your
immune system.
• Lie on it and watch a movie!
• I take a sauna every morning to start my day, followed by a cool shower - this
activates my lymph glands and balances my hormones. I now experience less
negative side effects during my menstrual cycle. I have also lost weight.
• To cool and refresh, I use it on just “power on”. This setting does not generate
heat, but only generates negative ions. This is a relaxing and refreshing setting.
• Within the first nights of sleeping on the BioMat, I slept more soundly and
awoke more deeply relaxed than ever before. In the summer it helps me to sleep
cooler.
• If I am feeling stressed, a short rest on the BioMat always refreshes.
• Within three months I had dropped one clothing size. I had been taking
frequent “saunas” once or twice a week on the BioMat (High Red Settings 149F
– 158F).
• When I was recovering from chronic fatigue and rebooting my immune system,
17
I spent almost 18 hours a day on the BioMat rotating through the different
settings. Now I use it for 30 minutes, 3 times a week.
• I use the BioMat for jet-lag and for boosting my immune system. If I feel
symptoms of flu or cold coming on, I use the BioMat for an hour at middle heat,
and I will not get sick.
• I love to lie on my stomach on the BioMat. This is helpful for easing menstrual
cramps and aiding digestion. I also like to lie on my back with my knees bent
and the bottoms of my feet on the BioMat, especially when my feet are cold/and
or sore. I feel that it opens the reflex points and meridians.
• Receiving a massage on it can be heavenly. Muscles are more elastic and
receptive and the body is put in alpha and delta states, states conducive to deep
regeneration and higher awareness.
• I sleep on the Biomat when I am experiencing insomnia. Within 10 minutes of
lying on it, I am asleep.
• On day 3 after my knee surgery I managed to get on the mat. My whole torso
was aching from all the drugs and I felt awful. After 2 hours on the Biomat all
my pain went away and I felt normal again. I continued using the Biomat for
the next 5 days and saw huge improvements in my knee’s recovery. My doctor
noticed the improvements as well.
• On mornings where I feel cold and stiff, I will begin my yoga and stretching
practice on the mat. Shivasana (rest pose) on the mat, at the close of my yoga
session, is amazing.
• It is wonderful for meditation since it induces alpha and delta states and helps
you drop into a meditative state more quickly.
