BioMat An Advanced Infared Healing Tool
Science and Medicine have come together to develop this revolutionary device for home and professional use.
The BioMat is a high quality infrared heating mat used in healing practices all over the world. It has helped thousands of people regain their health from a variety of conditions. The core of its technology is the combination of 3 healing components.
Far Infrared Light
Infrared light is similar to normal light, but its wavelenght is too long for our eyes to detect. Far infrared light has an even longer wavelength and transfers heat very efficiently. It is why sunlight feels warm. It can penetrate 6-8 inches into the body and because of this, these rays not only benefit the surface, but all cells including blood vessels, lymph glands and nerves in the deepest parts of the body. The deeply penetrating heat speeds cellular metabolism, reduces pain and quickly heals injuries. In comparison, heat trasnsferred merely by conduction (contact) or convection (airflow) does not heat an object deeply, or evenly throughout. Amethyst was found to be ideal for the purpose of converting conductive heat into far infrared light.
Negative Ions are particles in the air that have an extra electron. They are plentiful near large quantities of moving water, such as rainstorms, waterfalls or oceans. These particles tend to donate their extra electron and this can directly cancel oxidation in the body. They are an anti-oxident! When the BioMat is turned on, it produces these ions on its surface to transmit the healing effects of these pristine natural settings.
Amethyst has been thought to calm and clear the mind for thousands of years across many cultures. We have no direct mechanism to explain this effect nevertheless, most people report and improved mood and less anxiety after a BioMat treatment. Amethyst also has a low specific heat, and so it cannot store heat well. It must shed excess heat in the form of infrared light. Other infrared devices use carbon or ceramic "lamps" which are less efficient, producing light with shorter wavelengths and lower intensity.
Benefits of the BioMat
Current research is beginning to validate what many people already know about the BioMat: it can help ease or prevent many common ailments that are often treated with prescription drugs and /or hospitalization. The BioMat is designed to help the body heal itself naturally.
The BioMate has been show to:
treat chronic pain
support core body temperature
speed the healing of joints and tissue
detoxify (through sweating)
boost the immune system
promote deep relaxation and improve sleep
improve mood, reduce stress and anxiety
"The Biomat delivers soothing, deep-penetrating heat while stimulating the regeneration of damaged cells in your body. It's a safe and natural way to achieve optimal health now and maintain a stronger more resilient body in the future."

Steamy Wonder Spa
Steam Therapy With The Steamy Wonder Spa - $60 Per Session
Steam Therapy with the Steamy Wonder Spa
The History of Steam Therapy
Since ancient times steam therapy has been used by traditional healing systems around the world to improve and maintain good health, wellness and beauty. Turkish Baths, Native American Steam Lodges, Finnish Saunas, Japanese Steam Rooms and Roman Greek Bath Houses are good examples of how different cultures have used steam therapy.
Hippocrates recognized that by creating an 'artifical fever' (which occures during a Steamy Wonder Spa™Treatment) he could cure many illnesses. It is no surprise that thousands of Day Spas, Massage Therapist, and Health Clubs use steam therapy as an essential part of their program.
The Steamy Wonder Spa™ Therapy
The best way to steam is lying down on a comfortable soft massage table so your body is evenly heated for maximum blood flow. It is important that your neck and head are kept cool outside the tent, as recommended by Ayurvedic Heal Professionals. Special organic herbs and essential oils, such as rose and lavender, can be added to the steam to enhance your experience.
Weight Loss & Cellulite Reduction
An average person can easily lose 500 grams of sweat in a sauna (the equivalent of running three to four miles) or 475 to 600 calories. The water loss is regained by re-hydration, while the calories and fatty tissure remain burned off.
The weigh loss and cellulite reduction will vary based on the individual body type. It is very important to remember to eat properly and exercise regularly. This is an ideal process to enhance any good weight loss program.
As you relax in the Steamy Wonder Spa, your body is actually working to elimate toxins and burn fat. Weight loss is enhanced because body fat becomes water soluble and the body can more easily eliminate fats, toxins, and heavy metals. During the treatment circulation is dramatically increased allowing more profound detoxification and purification.
Because the metabolism increases you are burning calories, not just water! As you lose weight through purification many of the toxins stored in the skin and other tissues will be dissolved and eliminated as well.
The Steam Wonder Spa will also add to the reduction of hard to remove cellulite. When used in conjuction with special detoxifying mud and essential oils with manual manipulation of the tissues it will greatly accelerate effective cellulite reduction.
The moist heat experienced during Steamy Wonder Spa treatment speeds up the chemical processes in the body. As the pores open up and the millions os sweat glands start to excrete, the body rids itself of metabolic waste. This makes it one of the most simple and comfortable ways to rid the body of accumulated toxins.
The skin is sometimes called the third kidney because sweat contains much of the same elements as urine. This is why sweating is such an effective way to detoxify, and why some physicans recommend home saunas to supplement kidney machines. Sweat also draws out lactic acid which causes stiff muscles and general fatigue. This is why you will feel even more relaxed and rejuvenated after your Steamy Wonder Spa treatment.
I have been using Steamy Wonder Spa for 10 years as a detoxification unit for all my clients, including cancer patients. It is a great way to detoxify these patients once they have completed their chemo threatments. As a Nurse Massage Therapist I have been fortunate to work with some great physicians who believe in alternative healing. I also have used seaweed and mud treatments with the Spa, and all my clients love it.

Joint & Muscle Pain Relief
Steam therapy has often been used in the treatment of arthritis, rheumatism, joint stiffness and muscle spasms. As you relax in the Steamy Wonder Spa your body eliminates toxins at higher temperatures. This allows the body to easily reduce fats, toxins, and heavy metals. During a steam therapy treatment circulation increases which promotes healing in all your joints and muscles.
The deep moist heat of the The Steamy Wonder Spa helps relieve pain by causing the blood vessels to dilate. This stimulates increased blood circulation and allows more oxygen to get to soft tissue injuries and sore muscles for faster healing.
Treatment is ideal for athletes and active people, your flexibility and performance will increase.
All of The Steamy Wonder Spa benefits are greatly enhanced with the use of our specially prepared organic products and treatments. These blends of special muds, herbs and essential oils, all dramatically accelerate the relief of sore muscles, joint pain, and promote weight loss while they detoxify your body.
