The Amethyst Biomat is an FDA-licensed medical device that combines state-of-the-art Far Infrared light, Negative Ion technology, and the healing power of Amethyst crystals. I use the Amethyst Biomat Professional every day in my massage practice to deepen my clients’ healing. I also use the Amethyst Biomat travel size to support my health at home.
General Information About the Amethyst Biomat
The Amethyst Biomat is a revolutionary healing tool. It’s ideal for health care professionals and anyone invested in improving overall health and wellbeing. The Amethyst Biomat delivers reliable therapeutic results in your home or in a professional setting. As you read on, I’ll describe the science and show the tests that illustrate how it works and why many have experienced great benefits from far infrared and negative ion technology.
In a nutshell, the Biomat’s technology provides relief and speeds the repair and regeneration of muscles and tendons, regulates the body’s immune, endocrine, lymphatic, and nervous system to improve overall wellbeing.
Benefits of the Amethyst Biomat:
- improved circulation and cardiovascular function
- increased metabolism and weight control
- easing joint pain and stiffness
- stress and fatigue reduction
- improved skin health
- pain relief
- overall feeling of balance
Many insurance companies consider the use of the Biomat a viable treatment option for pain and other musculoskeletal ailments. The Biomat is approved by the FDA as an over-the-counter medical device.
The Biomat delivers the benefits of a Far Infrared sauna at a fraction of the cost. In addition to Far Infrared, this unique device also generates 6.8 microns of Medium “Human” Infrared. Human Infrared normalizes glandular functions and other important physiological functions, according to NASA research. This human infrared feature makes the Amethyst Biomat different from any other infrared device on the market.
The Richway Amethyst Biomat is the original biomat, with 17 layers of technology engineered to filter out EMF (electric frequencies) so you can rest on it for hours with no adverse effects… just gentle and deeply nourishing far infrared heat, natural negative ions and Amethyst crystals that contribute to your overall health and nervous system regulation. Great for pets, kids, elders and every member of the family.
Traditional infrared saunas and devices use 120 volts of AC (alternating current). Prolonged exposure to AC current has been proven to be highly detrimental to human health and it disturbs the human biological field. The Biomat protects the body from harmful AC current with its 5-tiered buffering system that converts AC current into DC (direct current) which is bio-electrically compatible with the human body.

What is Far Infrared?
Far infrared light is the frequency of invisible light that is generated naturally by the sun and the same form of heat emitted by your own body. The electromagnetic spectrum ranges from radio waves and microwaves (wavelengths longer than visible light) to Gamma rays, X-rays, and UV rays (wavelengths shorter than visible light). Whereas prolonged exposure to these wavelengths can cause damage, Infrared light is in the perfect “safe zone” with wavelengths that are not harmful to the human body.
Although Infrared energy is invisible to the eye, we can see its effect by its heat signature. Hotter objects are shown as warmer tones (cat) and cooler objects are shown as cooler tones (paws, floor, wall).
What are Far Infrared Rays and where do they come from?
Far Infrared technology was first brought to us by nature herself. All living beings emit certain amounts of (FIR). Traditionally, we’ve gotten our daily dose of (FIR) from sunlight, which is composed of all the energy wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. Far Infrared Rays are a form of energy that are part of the electromagnetic light frequency of sunlight that is not visible to the human eye. These Far Infrared Rays are safe, gentle, and beneficial – unlike the damaging effects of short wavelengths such as gamma rays and X-rays. NASA discovered how to generate (FIR) in the 1960’s to keep astronauts healthy in space. Far Infrared Rays are the safest and most beneficial electromagnetic energy available to the human body.
What are the health benefits of Far Infrared Rays?
Far Infrared Rays relieve Pain and Stress
Far Infrared Rays relieve pain and stress by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. Better circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body, helps reduce pain, and speeds up the healing process. The (FIR) light not only benefits the muscles on the surface of the body, but also at a cellular level, including the blood vessels, lymph glands, and nerves in the deepest parts of the body. These rays vitalize the biological function of our cells and help to eliminate toxins from our blood. Far infrared wave treatments have been used for cancer, chronic pain, stress, numbness, joint pain, rheumatism, low blood pressure, diabetes, and asthma. It relieves neuralgia, backache, and arthritis pain. The Far Infrared wave speeds up cellular metabolic processes, stimulates the activity of mitochondria, and triggers enzyme activity as well as the wound healing and normalization of damaged cell tissue. Also, far infrared light waves are essential for bone growth as well as preventing osteoporosis.
Far Infrared Rays Increase Blood Flow, Oxygen, and Nutrients to All Cells in Your Body
As you rest on the Biomat far infrared rays penetrate your body, prompting the release of nitric oxide (NO). This gaseous signaling molecule is crucial to the health of your arteries, as nitric oxide causes blood vessels to vasodilate, to become more flexible, and widen. The result is increased blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients to all the cells in your body.
Far Infrared Rays Effect Hormonal Balance of the Body
Dr. George Brainard found that light affects the hormonal balance of the body, in the levels of melatonin, prolactin, cortisone, testosterone, and thyroid hormones, and that light is essential to the functioning of our entire endocrine system. Far Infrared Rays promote vasodilation, bringing nutrients and oxygen to soft tissue regions, stimulating the removal of toxins, and decreasing inflammation and edema from the soft tissue. Detoxification strengthens the immune system, revitalizes skin tone, and helps normalize eczema and acne. Additionally, far infrared rays help reduce muscle spasm through heat, and reduce swelling, inflammation, and soreness through direct action on both free nerve endings and peripheral nerves. Other benefits include improving the balance of the blood pressure and blood sugar.
Far Infrared Rays and Weight Loss
The Amethyst Biomat is perfect for those who are disabled or not well enough to get the daily exercise needed to stay healthy. It assists the cardiovascular system by enhancing circulation as exercise would. Like exercise, the Amethyst Biomat supports the healthy detoxifiation process of perspiration. Perspiring is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardio output, and metabolic rate. This process requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt, and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water soluble at 110 degrees Fahrenheit, and the body sweats out fats and toxins.
What are Negative Ions and where do they come from?
Ions are electrically charged atoms or group of atoms formed by the loss or gain of one or more electrons. Negative ions (anions) are created by the gain of an electron and positive ions (cations) are created by the loss of an electron. They are created in nature as air molecules break apart due to sunlight, radiation, moving air and water. You may have experienced the power of negative ions when you last walked on the beach or through a waterfall. While part of the euphoria is simply being around these majestic settings, the air circulating in the mountains and the ocean contains tens of thousands of negative ions. At Yosemite Falls, you’ll experience over 100,000 negative ions per cubic centimeter. On the other hand, if you are on the freeway or in your office, you will experience under 100 negative ions or maybe even none.
