The traditional Finnish sauna has been used for more than a thousand years to promote health and vitality. People now use saunas for a host of health benefits, including detoxing, easing sore muscles, improving circulation, and achieving general relaxation and wellbeing. Using therapeutic steam heat for physical, mental and spiritual rejuvenation is a part of many cultures, including the Native American “sweat lodges,” Turkish “hammams” and Japanese “onsens.”
The popularity of saunas continues to grow in many cultures, but how do these traditional heat treatments compare to the BioMat in terms of overall health benefits?
When used at the high setting (149-158˚F), the BioMat delivers all of the benefits of the traditional sauna. The intense heat generated by the BioMat mimics the heat of the sauna, opening pores, increasing circulation and flushing away impurities. And the same relaxed, euphoric state is also experienced by people who use the BioMat.
However, with its powerful combination of far infrared ray, negative ion and amethyst crystal therapy, the BioMat offers health advantages that conventional sauna treatments are unable to match.
Let’s take a look at some of these advantages…
No fuss, no muss
Two of the most common complaints among sauna users is that using their sauna is a bit of a hassle and it takes up too much space. It takes between 45 to 90 minutes to heat a sauna before using it, which means you need to plan ahead in order to enjoy a sauna. It also requires you to disrobe and prepare to get really, really hot or even wet. For many people, this is an inconvenience. The BioMat, by comparison, heats up in minutes, and users can be clothed or not according to their preference. The convenience of BioMat treatments encourages most people use their BioMat on a daily basis, which means they enjoy the greatest health benefits. The BioMat is totally portable so you can use it where you want, consider laying in bed for a session or watching a show on TV.
Keeping your cool
In a sauna, you have to subject your whole body to the same temperatures. However, according to many alternative medical philosophies, such as traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine, keeping the head and brain cool is important. Drawing too much heat to the head can cause dizziness and disorientation, yet high heat is very beneficial to the rest of the body. By drawing heat away from the head and towards the rest of the body, the BioMat allows users to enjoy the full benefit of high heat without putting their health at risk. Using the cooling BioMat Pillow during treatment offers an extra degree of protection during prolonged use at high temperatures.
Saunas offer relaxation, hydration and detox benefits, but they can’t deliver the negative ion therapy offered by the BioMat. These invisible molecules, which naturally occur around mountains, waterfalls and beaches, create a feeling of wellbeing so powerful that many health practitioners recommend their use in treating depression. These “miracle molecules” are capable of boosting serotonin, improving the immune system and even alleviating allergies! BioMat users know first-hand how powerful negative ion treatment can be when paired with deep-heat therapy, but conventional saunas don’t deliver negative ions.
Saunas are known for their purifying effects, but they can’t match the BioMat’s triple-cleansing therapy. In addition to deep-penetrating far infrared heat and negative ions that help the cells of the body to renew themselves and eliminate waste products, the BioMat also uses the soothing, healing properties of pure amethyst crystals. Science tells us that amethyst is unusually conductive, and traditional healers have revered the stone’s healing properties for centuries.
Compared to a traditional sauna, the BioMat offers a more powerful healing experience—and provides it in a more convenient treatment format that makes it easier to incorporate into your daily health regimen.
