Here are some suggestions/tips to getting the most out of your new BioMat.
Controller - Soft Touch Power On/Off and Temperature Up/Down. The controller has an advanced I.C. Chip which cuts off Electromagnetic Waves. Instructions are included on operating your controller. When you plug the control box into the wall outlet and turn it on (I suggest using a power strip to protect your new biomat), check the control box to make sure the light comes on under the E.M.I. so you will block the electromagnetic waves. If the light doesn't come on, reverse the plug in the wall socket and it should come on.
The top layer of the BioMat contains Amethyst crystals so it is not lightweight, please be careful and don't injure yourself when setting up the BioMat. The ribbed side goes up, the smooth goes down. Use a 100% cotton sheet or 100% natural fiber material to protect the mattress pad that goes on top of the biomat. Also if it seems to hard at first, use natural fiber material like all cotton comforter or towells to create cushion, but don't use synthetics because the Far Infrared can't penetrate. You can also add the Quantum Energy Pad to add a layer of comfort for your new biomat, as well as get some extra healing benefits from the pad. The plug going into the biomat may be tight, it should go all the way in and be flush.
You can sleep all night on your Amethyst BioMat and enjoy the cumulative effects or use it on higher settings for deepest therapeutics. Green or lowest gold settings are best for sleeping.
Start on a lower setting, first two heat settings, 15 min. to 1 hour session on your BioMat.
Start by creating a calm, tranquil and private space in a quiet room in your home. Some mellow, relaxing music can help calm the nerves and cover any outside extra noises that may interfere with your peaceful and healing atmosphere, headphones are an excellent way to shutout outside noises. You may want to turn off the ringer on your phone so you will not be disturbed. Drink water before and after each session. Cover up with a 100% cotton sheet and/or blanket. Start slowly. Begin with the lowest setting which is the low-heat, green setting in short 15-30 min sessions. Green or lowest gold settings are best for starting out, and for sleeping, or for longer time periods and allow your body to become accustomed to the changes it may undergo. The low gold settings create a gentle warmth great for 2 hours or more .
Start gradually, in small doses, and your body will become more accustomed to using these light energetics in the way your body's innate intelligence knows how to do. All settings are therapeutic and extremely versatile. Establish and focus on your own intent. Positive thinking, meditation and visualization can offer profound and cumulative benefits to the body, mind and spirit.
Initially you may feel bursts of energy, or even a few extra naps are perfectly normal. A shower or bath is recommended after a sweat to wash away any toxins that have been released and are on your skin.
Increasing your session
After using your BioMat a few times and slowly increasing the temperature and length of time for your sessions, you may be ready to try a higher temperature for a deeper therapeutic session. You may want to cover up with a few towells and some heavier blankets to allow your body to absorb more energetics and induce healthy sweating. The higher gold settings may create deeply penetrating warmth and are great in 10 to 90 min sessions for joint relief, stress and anxiety relief and can create profound relaxation. The red settings may create deep heat for maximum therapeutics in 30 min to 1 hour sessions for sauna-level effect. You may need to stop ealier than planned when you start at high heat settings, your body may feel it is too hot. The next time you may last a little longer. And a little longer after that. Give yourself time to adjust to it.
Many Biomat users report dramatic benefits from incorporating half-hour power sessions or sweats 3-5 times per week on the highest red settings. This is much different than the sweating that results from ordinary heat saunas, as the BioMat quantum energetics may draw out 6-8 inches of deeply embedded acidic wastes and long term, trapped disease stores. Remember to listen to your body and continue with what you feel comfortable with. The lower settings over time can create similiar results as the higher settings as the effects are cumulative. It takes time just as your body took time to get where it is now, it will take time to get where you want to be.
As with all healthy habits, consistency is key. Practice letting go on a daily basis and it will soon become natural and easy for your body to let go of accumulated stress, and tension. A half-hour before bed can be ideal to prepare your body for deepest, regenerative sleep. As with starting any sort of health or fitness program you may want to consult your physician or health care practitioner first.
If the alarm comes on while using it or when you turn it on, unplug everything and plug it all in again. Make sure the connector that plugs in at the biomat is pushed all the way in, it should be flush with the connector on the biomat. Still have an alarm?
