Product Description

"I love my mat - I never want to get up." - MH, Florida

suelargeblue.pngSusan says, "Our far infrared amethyst and tourmaline mat is our signature mat, perfect for chronic soft-tissue pain and chronic inflammation.

"This 'far infrared' mat is stuffed with 6 1/2 pounds of amethyst and tourmaline crystal and measures 19” wide and 31” long, with a temperature control range of 77°F to 158°F.

"It's perfect perfect for sleeping comfort when placed under your mattress pad, emitting negative ions for increased full body health. Negative ions sound 'bad', but they're good for you - it's 'positive ions' that aren't healthy. Salt lamps generate negative ions, too - that's how safe they are.

"The controller has a manual shut off. Temperature range is 30°C to 70°C - that's 70°F to 158°F (internal temperature not surface temperature).

"You get a handy waterproof carry bag, too. Compare to mats cost up to $1,000."

Scroll down the page for FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS and HEALTHY BENEFITS as reported by the manufacturer:

Healthy Benefits reported include:

1. Improves Circulation & Cardiovascular Function

Far infrared therapy raises body temperature, warming the blood and expanding the blood vessels. This creates an increase in peripheral blood flow and volume, resulting in improved circulation and heart function, as well as oxygenation.

2. Improves Immune System Function

Far infrared rays’ deeply penetrating heat raises body temperature, inducing an artificial and healthy fever, which promotes the killing of many pathogens, including bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. As the body works to combat the “fever,” the body’s immune system is activated and strengthened by increasing production of white blood cells. Combined with the detoxification of harmful toxins and waste products, one’s overall health and resistance to disease are greatly improved.

3. Relieves Pain and Chronic Inflammation

The deep penetrating heat of the far infrared therapy helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to the muscles and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries away metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to depleted muscles so they recover faster.

4. Burns Calories and Controls Weight

As one relaxes in the gentle heat of the far infrared mat, one’s body is actually hard at work, producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. According to a Journal of the American Medical Association report, a single far infrared session burns as many calories as rowing or jogging for 30 minutes.

5. Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness

Far infrared heat therapy is widely used to treat patients who are suffering from many kinds of arthritic and musculoskeletal disorders. In addition, it has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other musculoskeletal ailments by increasing the growth of cells, DNA and protein synthesis necessary for tissue repair and regeneration. Stiffness, aches and soreness that come with aging are reduced or eliminated using far infrared therapy.

6. Reduces Stress and Fatigue

The gentle warmth of the far infrared rays helps to sooth nerves and relax tight or knotted muscles by heating the muscle fibers. The end result is an improvement in the balance of blood pressure, blood sugar and nutrients in the cells resulting in increased muscle strength, mental stability and improved energy.

7. Improves Skin

The FIR’s heat and negative ions penetrate deeply into the body, through the skin, helping to detoxify impurities from the skin and lymphatic system. In addition, the far infrared greatly enhances exfoliation by rapidly removing dead skin cells. Increased circulation draws the skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface, rejuvenating the skin’s health and appearance.

8. Assists in Detoxification

Far infrared therapy helps to detoxify the body in several important ways. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help detoxify the body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid, cholesterol, and uric acid. In addition to causing the body to sweat, far infrared is capable of removing toxins via several other bodily systems.


Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use an extension cord with my far infrared mat?

Absolutely. However, the extension cord itself MUST be of the same or greater diameter than the cord on the FIR Mat controls.


Can I use the FIR Mat if I have surgical implants?

Metal implants generally reflect infrared rays and will rarely heat up. Start with a temperature below 110°, and increase the setting gradually. Silicone implants will absorb radiant heat but are not harmed by mat temperatures. However, it is always best to check with your physician before using your amethyst mat on higher temperatures.


Can I use the FIR Mat with a pacemaker?

Generally, a far infrared mat will not affect your pacemaker but you should check with your cardiologist to be sure.


Will synthetic fibers affect my FIR Mat?

Natural fibers are recommended but not essential for clothing, as well as anything you are using to cover your FIR Mat to protect it or provide cushioning.


Will a FIR Mat benefit my arthritic dog?

Absolutely! We are currently looking into manufacturing a FIR Mat with a suitable covering to protect it and potentially reduce the cost. As dogs age, rheumatism and arthritis can reduce their quality of life, and the FIR Mat will help them significantly, just as it would a person. Older dogs are less inclined to chew, so chewing the electrical cord should not be an issue. But it is an electrical device, and your pet should always be supervised while on the mat.


What is the FDA certification of the FIR Mat?

The FDA has classified the FIR Mat as a Class II Medical Device.
 

What does it mean for the FDA to “classify” a medical device?

The FDA classifies medical devices based on the risks associated with the device. Devices are classified into one of three categories: Class I, Class II, and Class III.

Class I devices are deemed to be low risk, and are, therefore, subject to the fewest regulatory controls. For example, dental floss is classified as a Class I device.

Class II devices are higher risk devices than Class I, and require more regulatory controls to provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness. For example, condoms are classified as Class II devices.

Class III devices are generally the highest risk devices, and are, therefore, subject to the highest level of regulatory control. Class III devices must typically be approved by FDA before they are marketed. For example, replacement heart valves are classified as Class III devices.
