What is Far Infrared Heat?
Far Infrared therapy (FIR) involves the use of Far Infrared rays to gently heal, soothe, stimulate and detox the physical body, as well as the mind.
Far Infrared Rays are invisible waves of energy that have the ability to penetrate all layers of the human physical body, penetrating into the inner-most regions of the tissues, muscles, and bone.
Far Infrared therapy very gently increases blood flow by expanding the capillaries (vasodilation) that carry blood. It also increases oxygenation and regeneration of the blood, deeply detoxifying it for the improved functioning of all of the major organs in the body, which depend on blood for energy. This detoxification is on the deepest level, allowing hidden toxins in the blood and tissue to be dissolved or immobilized.
Through the subtle heating, Far Infrared boosts your immune system, increasing the number of white blood cells and killer T-cells. It is an excellent therapy for promoting healing, reducing muscle soreness, and muscle spasms, and relief for rheumatoid arthritis. Research by NASA has shown that far infrared on the cardiovascular system was a great way of keeping astronauts’ hearts’ in optimal condition.
Far Infrared can also increase the processing enzyme activity in our digestive tract, as well as boost metabolism. An hour of this therapy can burn up to 900 calories, showing excellent results in breaking down trapped fat, waste, cellulite, and other forms of toxic substances. The rejuvenating effects of Far Infrared have been shown to help heal scar tissue such as burn scars, acne scars, and other forms of dermatological scarring.
The sweating quality that comes from Far Infrared Therapy truly helps us detox from the enormous levels of pollution in modern times. It also is crucial for discomfort relief and the reduction of redness and swelling. Clinical studies done in both the United States, and Japan, found, “Much of the stiffness, aches, and soreness that comes with aging is reduced or eliminated” and, “Whole-body far-infrared heat relieved pain from burns and decreased healing time with less scarring.”
Heart studies done by The Mayo Clinic and the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that infrared therapy significantly improved blood vessel functioning in high-cholesterol, diabetes and smoking patients. The therapy also was found to increase circulation, lower blood pressure, lower blood sugar, and help in weight loss as well as increase Nitric Oxide in the blood.
What is Amethyst?
Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz. The name comes from the Koine Greek ἀμέθυστος amethystos from ἀ- a-, “not” and μεθύσκω methysko / μεθύω methyo, “intoxicate”, a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness or addictions.
Amethyst is a stone of spiritual protection and purification, cleansing one’s energy field of negative influences and attachments, and creating a resonant shield of spiritual Light around the body. It acts as a barrier against lower energies, psychic attacks, geopathic stress, and unhealthy environments.
For a sauna effect, use the mat at 60-70C for about 30 minutes, while covered with a blanket. To increase the sauna effect you can place a mini mat on the front of the body and also then cover with a blanket.
For normal overnight use set it to about 35-40C, according to your comfort. It is suggested to place a towel on the mat, instead of lying on the stones directly, to protect the mat from sweat.
When first starting out with the mat it is better to go low and go slow.
Human body temperature is approximately 38 degrees Celsius so that would be an ideal point to start. Gradually increase the temperature to test your tolerance. Set your temperature lower for longer usage and higher for shorter periods. Always drink lots of water before, during, and after use to prevent the physical effects of dehydration. Safe for pets and children.
It is also recommended to use the optional Ultramat regeneration blanket over the body with the mat (contact the distributor). This reflects back the infrared heat and your own body heat. It also harmonises and balances your body’s emotional energy to take the Ultramat experience to a whole new level.
