The Biomat is an FDA (USA) licensed medical device that delivers Far Infrared Light. Far Infrared is the most beneficial and safe light rays, along with Negative Ions, it has the power to energise our entire body. Combined with Amethyst Crystals, that enhance balancing and has regenerative effects on our bodies.
Our Biomat is exactly what you need to perk up if you are feeling a little run down. Conveniently located in Strathpine, with great opening hours, we are North Brisbane's newest health and wellness centre.
FAR INFRARED RAYS
The deep penetrating power of Far Infrared Rays stimulates every system of the body from the inside out. As Infrared is radiated into the body, it resonates with the frequencies of organic molecules and cells causing them to vibrate, heat up and expand. In turn, blood vessels, capillaries, nerve endings and organelles expand, making the body feel fully charged and energized in just the same way a bell struck at regular intervals vibrates and moves faster and faster. This causes a net increase in metabolism helping cells to divide faster, nervous signals to move faster and healing to occur at a much accelerated rate.
The Negative Ions stimulate all of the cell membranes of the body causing their ion channels to become active. This helps to alkalize all cells by removing cellular waste and toxins. Negative Ions also convert cells from “Fight or Flight” (Stress) mode, to Reproductive, Normal Functioning (Happy) Mode causing a sense of Deep Relaxation in the mind and body. Just as negative ions clean our air, they also clean out our cells.
Amethyst Crystals have been known to deliver both infrared and negative ions naturally. In this case the Amethyst crystal is not only used to focus the FIR energy of the Biomat but also helps to calm and protect the mind and nervous system. These therapeutic components of the Biomat work to remove blockages creating better communication between the brain, the autonomic and sympathetic nervous systems and all organs of the body to balance and stabilize the bodies systems and strengthen the body’s own self-healing power.

do's and don'ts
If it’s your first Biomat experience, try to arrive 5-10 mins early so we have the opportunity to welcome you and talk you through your first session.
It’s important to make sure you are well hydrated before and after any Biomat session for maximum benefit. An hour before your sauna try to drink at least 500mls of good quality filtered water.
If you can, limit the amount of personal care products you put on before a session. Clean skin will make it easier for your body to cleanse and clear out all the toxins and impurities.
If it is possible to shower, do so as soon as you get out in order to wash off any lingering toxins. Ideally, the shower should be cool to warm but preferably not hot (if you can’t shower, just wipe yourself down with a wet towel).
Drink another 500ml of water over 10-30 minutes.

Do I need to bring anything?
No. Everything you need will be provided when you arrive.
What do I do after my session?

Does infrared technology interfere with implants (metal, silicone, etc.)?
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infrared sauna.
