The following section contains an overview of the three components of the amethyst crystal heating pad, why this unique combination is so state of the art in its therapeutic applications, and the various features and health benefits that the infrared heating pad offers.
Amethyst Crystal Heating Pad Explained
The LifeMats PRO Amethyst Crystal Heating Pads come with a fully adjustable heat range allowing the user to determine their preferred intensity. Its heating range is between 86°F and 158°F (approximately) ~30°C – 70°C. The mat has a built-in overheat protection layer as well as a uniform heating layer to keep its users safe and to provide a consistent warming experience (REMINDER: this mat is NOT to be used on individuals who lack heat sensitivity because burns can occur). The LifeMats PRO Amethyst infrared heating pads have a high-quality, EMF-blocking (ElectroMagnetic Field) system to keep users from negative EMF exposure. This includes both a high-end silicon heating wire as well as a special copper wave-proof layer.
You can choose from a couple convenient mat sizes (Small = 19.6” x 31.4” and Large = 23.6” x 59”).
LifeMats PRO Amethyst infrared heating pads are visually appealing. They include a high quality leather that is soft to the touch and yet quite durable. The relaxing experience feels very luxurious in comparison to a localized, “heat-only” pad.
LifeMats PRO infrared heating pads are an FDA registered Class II 510(k) exempt medical heating pad device (which does not mean the FDA has rigorously tested or approved them in any way. But it does mean that the manufacturer of the mats is very serious about the high quality devices they build and has been diligent in ensuring the FDA knows about their facility and the functionality of the mats they’re making).
At LifeMats PRO we have spent a great deal of time testing and trying the mats out ourselves. We became so impressed by how the functionality stacked up against the big competitors in the marketplace (that are currently asking 2 to 3 times the cost for this same functionality). We decided we wanted to sell them and let others in on the secret of a life-giving experience for an affordable cost. We think everyone should be able to purchase one of these mats, not just the wealthy. This is why we’ve launched our business online, so that we can help others feel as good as we do with these precious stone mats that function with such consistent high quality.
We hope you will experience as many positive results as we have now that you own one yourself.
LifeMats PRO Amethyst Mats are quality products we’ve built to last. It comes with a full one year warranty. We personally manage all customer service concerns via email. This is our way of cutting costs in order to keep our product pricing as low as possible (we do not outsource our customer service to a third party). Check out our Customer Support section to learn more. We believe you will be very pleased with our company, but more importantly, with the stress-relieving functionality of our mats.
Negative-Ion generation: Negative ions open ion channels that optimize cellular communication and support improved body function. Ionization of the body alkalizes and purifies the blood, charges the immune system, and supplies antioxidants that neutralize free radicals.
Far InfraRed (FIR) light generation: FIR is nature’s most healing heat. FIR helps the nervous system relax. FIR’s radiant heat can penetrate 5 to 7 inches into the body, allowing for deep muscle and tissue therapy while soothing nerves, increasing circulation, assisting in detoxification as well as reducing stress and some types of pain.
Amethyst Crystals: Amethyst is known to be a superconductor crystal. It delivers the steadiest, most absorbable, long wave Far InfraRed (FIR) rays for healing. Amethyst is known to increase stamina and endurance, support deep meditation, is useful for emotional balancing, and enhancing intuition. Amethyst has been thought to be supportive of the body’s ability to release addiction and transform lower vibrations into higher resonance.
Features and Health Benefits of the Amethyst Crystal Heating Pad
|Features / Functionality||Applications Explained|
|Relieves Pain*||The deep heat of Far InfraRed (FIR) helps peripheral blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscles and soft tissue injuries. Increased blood circulation carries off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles, so they recover faster.*|
|Helps to Burn Calories*||As you relax in the gentle heat of Far InfraRed (FIR) your body is actually hard at work, producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, a single 30 minute Far InfraRed (FIR) session, burns as many calories as rowing or jogging for 30 minutes.*|
|Eases Joint Pain & Stiffness*||Far InfraRed (FIR) heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many kinds of arthritis 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 aliments. Stiffness, aches and soreness that come with aging are reduced when using FIR.*|
|Reduces Stress & Fatigue*||The gentle warmth of the Far InfraRed (FIR) rays helps to soothe nerves, relax tight or knotted muscles, and calm your entire nervous system.*|
|Improves Skin*||The Infrared Amethyst BodyMat's Far InfraRed (FIR) rays and negative ions penetrate the skin deeply, helping to detoxify impurities from the skin and lymph system. In addition, exfoliation is greatly enhanced by the Far InfraRed (FIR), rapidly removing dead skin cells.Increased circulation draws your skin's own natural nutrients to the surface,rejuvenating its health and appearance.*|
|Alkalizes & Purifies the Blood*||When negative ions are exposed to the body, the calcium and sodium circulating in the blood get ionized. This changes the blood pH into a more alkaline state and has an overall alkalizing effect on the body. Proper blood pH is essential for optimal health. It has been noted that the negative ions, when applied to the body, are helpful at regulating blood pH.*|
|Revives Cells*||As negative ions in the blood increase, so does the intercellular communication. This occurs as the cell membranes are opened. Cellular metabolism is facilitated which results in an increase in cellular nutrient uptake as well as hydration. In addition, cellular waste materials are more efficiently excreted. With the increase in cellular metabolism, optimal cell function is rapidly revived. For more information research the Nobel Prize in Physiology (1991) for the discovery of ion channels.*|
|Acceptance in the Medical Community*||The LifeMats PRO Amethyst Mats are registered with the FDA as a Class II 510(k) exempt device under regulation 890.5740.|
|Alkalizes the Body||An alkaline body is important for good health. Overly acidic systems can be lethargic, agitated, aggressive, and home to an unwanted microbe burden, etc. Most diseases are rooted in an acidic body.*|
|Pregnancy Support*||Low back pain relief & after birth recovery. Note: Be sure you have consulted with your doctor before use.*|
|Induces Sweating with Sauna-like Action*||Resulting in detoxification, clearer skin, burning calories, working in conjunction with a “food cleanse”.*|
|Menopause / Hormonal*||Helps balance the action of the thyroid and lymph glands.*|
|Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) & Trauma Recovery*||Negative ions relax the nervous system. Far InfraRed (FIR) light signals the nervous system that it is safe to move out of the stuck “fight or flight” mode.*|
|Helps Remove Toxins & Assists in Detoxification*||Far InfraRed (FIR) helps to detoxify the body in a couple important ways. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands and lymph system, releasing built up toxins and waste. Daily sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of potentially carcinogenic heavy metals, alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid, cholesterol, uric acid, and more. In addition to sweating, Far InfraRed (FIR) mobilizes toxins and acidic waste, allowing their removal via several other bodily systems.*|
|Improves Circulation & Cardiovascular Function*||Far InfraRed (FIR) waves raise body temperature, thereby warming the blood and expanding the blood vessels. The increase in peripheral blood flow and volume results in improved circulation and heart function.*|
|Improves Immune System||Far InfraRed (FIR) ray's deep heat can raise your body’s core temperature, inducing a sort of healthy fever. When your body’s temperature is high, the microbial load (virus, parasite, microbe, etc.) tends to lessen as they cannot survive well in a “hot”|
|Function*||environment – they prefer normal to lower than normal body temperatures and need that to survive. So if you artificially “induce a fever”, you are supporting your immune system by helping your body make an uncomfortable and in some cases nonsurvivable environment for those “bad bugs”. And when you combine this with the removal of harmful toxins and waste products, your overall health and resistance to disease can be improved. NOTE: Do NOT attempt to induce a fever with your LifeMats PRO Amethyst Mat(s) unless you are under the care and direction of a doctor who is very knowledgeable on the subject. Most “Hyperthermia” treatments are more wellknown and practiced in other parts of the world, like Europe.*|
Top Infrared Heating Pad Benefits
There are many different ways to help treat pain and injuries and help you to relax. One of the best ways to do this is to use a good quality infrared heating pad. These pads work by emitting an infrared light that harmlessly radiates through the body yielding a variety of benefits. Here are the biggest benefits of infrared heating pads.
- DIFFERENT SIZES
Not everyone is built the same size and not everyone wants to treat the same area. So most infrared heating pads come in a variety of sizes. These pads generally come in two different sizes of pads, a large and a small.
- DEEP PENETRATION
Infrared heat pads allow for penetration up to 7 inches. That means the treatment is thorough and relaxing. You don’t need to worry about rolling over or missing spots. All of your aches can go away with one tool.
- AMETHYST CRYSTALS
Amethyst crystals are one of the best known superconducting crystals out there. They have been used for a long time for a wide variety of purposes. These powerful crystals will amplify light and energy that is carried through them to levels that support stamina, endurance, meditation, and emotional balancing.
- BURN CALORIES
While an infrared heating pad isn’t a magical weight loss tool it will help you burn excess calories. In a single treatment of 30 minutes, you burn the equivalent of 30 minutes of rowing or jogging, both through exercises. You lack the muscle development you would gain from either activity, so it is great as a tool to be used with exercise when you need to burn calories.
- REMOVING IMPURITIES
Through the course of your life, your body gets exposed to a number of impurities and problems with both the blood and lymph systems. Amethyst Mats help with this by ionizing and alkalizing the blood system and other parts of the body. It does this by introducing ions into the body which trigger calcium and sodium to start circulating in your system.
- REMOVING TOXINS
The same process that removes impurities and ionizes your blood stream helps to remove toxins from your body. These ions stimulate the glands and lymph nodes which in turn push out anything they have built up in them. The sweating that is caused by the heat also helps to flush toxins out of your system, just like traditional healing methods from many parts of the world.
- RELAXING NERVOUS SYSTEM
Your nervous system is the part of the body that tightens up when you feel threatened or scared. People who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder have taut nervous systems. The ions and infrared beams that enter the body from the healing mat cause the nervous system to relax and help significantly in the treatment of PTSD.
Now that you can see some of the benefits of an infrared heating pad you can see that they are used for a wide variety of treatments and for everyday relaxation. By getting one for yourself, you can live a healthier and more stress-free life. You can also combine it with other medical treatments to help you improve faster.
CONSULT A DOCTOR – It is strongly recommended that you consult your doctor before using thermal therapy (especially long term, i.e. while sleeping) particularly on mid-range and high-level temperatures. If you are pregnant or have any kind of medical issue or disease, this step is paramount to ensure your safety with the mat. This mat should not to be used by infants or incapacitated persons. Do not use on heat sensitive skin (i.e. face) or where there is loss of feeling (i.e. Diabetic). Do not use heatproducing topicals with mat, skin burns may occur. If you have implants of any kind (metal, silicone, etc.), ask your doctor if Far InfraRed (FIR) heat is safe for you.*
The Healing Power of Far Infrared Heat
Infrared comes in many forms but only Far Infrared Radiation is proven to have therapeutic effects on the body. FIR transfers heat which can be recognized by the human skin’s thermo-receptors as radiant heat. FIR is not just absorbed since it can also be emitted by the human body. The use of heat for therapeutic purposes dates back to ancient times in the form of palm healing. The heat produced by FIR was transferred from the healer’s palm to the affected area of the patient.
The wavelength of Far Infrared Rays is too long to be perceived by the naked eye, however, the body feels its energy as a gentle radiant heat which can penetrate 5-7 inches deep into the body. Prolonged exposure to FIR heat does not cause detectable skin heating since it does not just heat the skin but penetrates deep into the muscles.
Sources of FIR heat
FIR heat therapy can be achieved through FIR saunas or with the use of an infrared heating pad. While FIR saunas may be utilized for broad FIR heat therapy, an infrared heating pad is more convenient and effective in treating targeted areas with chronic pain or muscle injury.
Healing benefits of FIR heat therapy
The most effective form of heat therapy is the one that can maintain heat at the proper temperature. The proper temperature should feel warm since the heat source should not be too hot to avoid burning the skin. When using an infrared heating pad, gentle heat is applied to the skin that can be absorbed by the muscles. This is important to maximize the benefits of heat therapy. FIR heat therapy has a variety of benefits from improving the body’s cardiovascular health to promoting the healing capabilities of cells.
FIR heat therapy is particularly beneficial for:
FIR heat therapy helps in increasing blood flow by dilating the blood vessels. This promotes oxygenation on a cellular level and regeneration of blood thereby improving the function of the body’s major organs that are highly dependent on blood for energy supply. Studies have shown that infrared heat benefits the cardiovascular system because the demand for the body to regulate the heat may be compared to the body’s physical effort when walking at a moderate pace. In a research conducted by NASA, results have shown that far infrared was a great way of keeping astronauts’ hearts in optimal condition.
Infrared heat can also help in healing a muscular injury. The deep penetration of heat helps in increasing the blood flow to the injured muscles which aids in healing. Experts claim that aside from penetrating deeper into the muscles, infrared heat also releases nitric oxide. Nitric oxide promotes circulation and increases the oxygen and other nutrients that are responsible for helping heal the injured muscles. A small infrared heating pad can be used to treat a specific area, such as a strained hamstring.
Infrared heat can also be used to help wounds heal more quickly. Increasing circulation and nitric oxide levels around the affected area can help in speeding up the healing process of the wound. This is applicable to people that require longer times for wound healing such as those with diabetes.
Treatment of Back Pain
Most back pains result from strains and over-exertions of the lower back that creates tension in the muscles and soft tissues around the spine. This results in the restriction of proper circulation in the area and sends pain signals to the brain. Infrared heat therapy can help relieve back pain and tightness in the lower back. Studies have shown that Far Infrared Heat can make the connective tissues more flexible, allow better joint movement and increase the levels of endorphins that help in pain relief.
Far Infrared Heat works wonders in maintaining good health and promoting the body’s healing processes. It remains to be the most effective means of providing heat therapy with its deep penetrating capabilities. If you are looking for the safest way to heal your muscles, Far Infrared Heat will be the best option for you.
