The tourmaline used in the eye masks is crushed with ceramic to make tourmaline ceramic, which makes the stone sturdier and also increases the negative ion emission.
Tourmaline crystals are piezoelectric and pyroelectric.
Piezoelectricity means electricity resulting from pressure. So this effect, when applied to the body is generally thought to act as a biological force sensor. Research by the University of Pennsylvania in the late 70’s and early 80’s established that sustained application of electrical potential could stimulate resorption and growth of bone in-vivo.
Pyroelectricity is the ability of tourmaline to generate a voltage when heated or cooled. The change in temperature modifies the position of the atoms is in the crystalline structure so that the subsequent polarization generates a voltage across the crystal. This is believed to be beneficial to human cell potential.
When the tourmaline stones are pressed or heated, they produce an electrical potential. The negative ions have been shown to increase metabolism, increase alpha brain waves, and positively impact serotonin oxidation in the bloodstream, thus helping to make you happier, more optimistic, creative, and energetic.
When heated, tourmaline also emits FIR (Far InfraRed) rays deep into the body, stimulating blood circulation and cell activity in the exposed areas. Both effects increase when more heat is applied.
The cut and polished surface of the gems in the mask can also polarize light by shining rays, so enhancing its healing power. Tourmaline is said to reduce intestinal and skin problems, support the exchange of oxygen in the blood and help with diseases of the liver, skin, and nervous system. It improves the immune, endocrine, and lymphatic systems, heals insomnia, and stimulates regeneration throughout the body. Brown tourmaline is reputed to be an excellent grounding stone, aligning and protecting the etheric body. It is said to encourage community spirit and social commitment, heal dysfunctional relationships, and increase empathy and feeling of harmony and well-being.
The large 1 – 2 inch diameter tourmaline stone disks naturally emit healthy Anions (negative ions) up to 3000 ions per cubic centimeter. So when wearing the eye mask it will feel cool as it takes up heat from the body. This electrical potential across the crystal will generate negative ions and the infrared rays will cause vasodilation to regenerate and aid in additional blood supply to the area. This has been shown to stimulate fibroblasts and help produce more collagen in the skin whilst giving a great soothing effect.
The eye mask can be worn when using the mat or by itself when relaxing. Some people leave the eye mask out in the sun to ‘’charge’’ it up before wearing it or place it on the heated mat for a while to heat it up. This is only a preference.
The mask can be worn anytime when relaxing and comes with a beautiful gift box.
