Here at Vine Healthcare we love any therapy that triggers your body’s innate healing mechanisms, so you can find lasting relief in a natural way. If we can get your body to do what it does best and combat pain and dysfunction on its own – then we are truly doing our job and bringing you closer to a Fully Functional® life.
Our therapeutic Richway Amethyst BioMat uses cutting-edge NASA technology based on Nobel prize-winning scientific research to improve your health using two powerful activators:
- Infrared wavelengths
- Negative Ions
The effectiveness and strength of infrared rays and negative ions are amplified by amethyst channels, which have an ultra-conductive ability. The pure amethyst allows both the infrared rays and negative ions to penetrate deep into your tissues.
BioMat Technology – How Does a BioMat Work?
BioMats are filled with amethyst stone and emit far infrared deep heating therapy and negative ions. Amethyst is used because it is highly conductive and allows the two therapeutic elements to be more effective. Here’s how these two mechanisms work.
Infrared wavelengths – Infrared waves are able to penetrate your body deeply and raise your core temperature, while also energizing your detox pathways. Infrared therapy is incredibly pleasant and our patients often leave feeling revitalized and refreshed.
Infrared rays reduce inflammation, boost detoxification, promote cellular healing, increase circulation, and more. Infrared rays are so beneficial, we also have Infrared Sauna Therapy in our office.
Negative ions – Negative ions have a negative charge, so they’re attracted to positively charged and potentially damaging molecules in the body. Negative ions have been shown to improve mood, energy levels, and mental clarity.
Negative ions are the reason being in nature (especially at the beach) feels so good. The sun breaks apart molecules in the air, creating negative ions, which makes it smell fresh. Negative ions are the reason getting fresh air awakens you. Negative ions also travel from the ground through your bare feet and up your legs, which is called grounding.
The Richway Amethyst BioMat stimulates both the circulatory and autonomic nervous systems, provides relief from arthritis pain and stiffness, and relaxes yet appropriately energizes the body. Simultaneously, the BioMat reduces stress, facilities soft tissue repair, boosts immune system health, and helps manage weight control. The negative ions help create an alkaline state in the body, which improves cellular function and can create a sense of euphoria.
13 BioMat Therapy Benefits
The benefits from BioMat therapy are not theoretical. They’re created by deep-penetrating infrared waves and the negative ions. Our Richway Amethyst BioMat has been approved by the FDA for:
- Relaxing muscles
- Increasing circulation
Furthermore, the 13 other BioMat therapy benefits include:
- Alleviating minor muscle pains
- Relieving minor joint stiffness and pain
- Soothing arthritic joint pain
- Reducing muscle spasms
- Alleviating minor sprains and strains
- Soothing minor muscular back pain
- Reducing stress
- Boosting energy levels
- Inducing relaxation
- Supporting the immune system
- Improving sleep (if interrupted by pain)
- Reducing inflammation
- Increasing tissue oxygen
These are the benefits acknowledged by the FDA. In our office, we have seen BioMat therapy help those who are in need of serious anti-inflammatory measures, stress reduction and more effective detoxification due to chronic illness. We also have patients who use BioMat therapy as a part of their overall health regimen because it makes them feel fantastic. Dr. Ellen sleeps on hers every night.
