Ever hear of far infrared light? How about negative ion therapy? Amethyst crystals? If not, then you probably don’t know that these complementary technologies have been combined to form one of the hottest new treatments in holistic healing. It’s called the BioMat. When we learned this cutting-edge therapy is available locally, we asked Veronica Correa of The Personal Wellness Center for details on this approach to noninvasive health and healing.

Please explain what the BioMat is.
The BioMat is an FDA-approved medical device that uses a combination of far infrared heating, negative ions and amethyst crystals to relieve a wide variety of conditions and improve overall health.

Is this brand-new technology?
Well, the underlying concept has been around for more than a thousand years, but it’s only recently that these technologies have been combined in the development of healthcare products.

Are these products commonly available on the retail market?
As far as I am aware, The Personal Wellness Center is the only facility in the region that has a BioMat.
What’s the public response been?
My clients absolutely love it. I can’t even think of one who’s tried it and not gone back for more. I use it myself, in fact.

How does it work?
It couldn’t be easier. All you do is lie on the BioMat and let it do its thing. It works for people of all ages, and it’s completely pain-free.

What’s the basic operating principle behind the BioMat?
The far infrared heat penetrates the body down to the blood vessels, lymph glands and nerves. It promotes cellular regeneration and metabolism, improving circulation, reducing pain and accelerating healing. It also reduces blood pressure, improves sleep and detoxifies the body.

The negative ions increase the levels of the essential neurotransmitter serotonin, which promotes mental alertness, energy and clarity. Negative ions also help alleviate allergies, minimize migraines and reduce sinus problems. The amethyst crystals, meanwhile, improve organ function, reduce inflammation, aid digestion, soothe the nervous system and even improve memory. There’s so much more the BioMat does, but we’d be here all day.

How often can you use it?
A BioMat can be used safely every day, but I’ve found that three times a week is sufficient to treat an existing health condition or to relieve stress, then once a week after that for basic maintenance.

Is it very expensive?
Not at all. At $35, a half-hour BioMat session costs less than a standard massage.

Is there anyone who shouldn’t try the BioMat?
Based on everything I’ve seen and read, the answer is no. In fact, a BioMat session may just be the best 30-minute investment a person can make in their overall health and well-being.
