Frequently Asked Questions
How long before I see results?
should be seen very quickly for those using the mat for pain relief, stress level, and mood improvement. However results may
vary depending on frequency of use and the nature of the problem that you are treating. Although many people see results in
as little as a day, for others it may take several weeks to notice improvement.
How should I use the mat for treatment of an injury
the first day or two, if there is swelling, it is better to use cold to reduce the swelling and prevent further injury. But
once the swelling has gone down, heat will speed up the rate of tissue repair and FIR light is the best way to deliver heat
straight to the injury site. For this purpose, it is best to use the mat for 20-30 minutes, multiple times a day.
Are there any negative side effects associated with
infrared rays and negative ions?
Although all effects on the body are positive, some
people experience slight fevers, headaches, and nausea when beginning to use the Bio Mat. This is not a direct reaction to
the infrared rays or negative ions, rather it is the effects of detoxification as built up waste and toxins are being removed
from your system. These effects are temporary and will vary depending on the level of toxins in the body.
The Bio Mat is an electrical device - is it safe to lie on?
moves through a wire, an electromagnetic field (EMF) is produced. There is some concern that our frequent exposure to these
EMFs may have health effects. In particular, there is concern about alternating current, since it creates a rapidly alternating
EMF. The Bio Mat is designed with these concerns in mind. It converts AC electricity to DC at the control box, and then incorporates
further measures to lessen the strength of the EMF around the mat itself. It is possible to test your Bio Mat with a Tri-Meter,
or other EMF measuring device. The fields should be nearly undetectable.
How often should I use the Bio Mat?
You can use the
Bio Mat as often and as long as you like. It is recommended that you use the Bio Mat for a minimum of 20 minutes at each session,
but you have the option to use it for longer if you wish. Most people use the Bio Mat daily or for multiple sessions each
day and see great benefits, however intermittent use for a specific reason, such as relieving back pain, can also be sufficient.
