Want to hear about one of the weird things I'm obsessed with? I'll give you hint. It's something that doesn't photograph well, as you may have noticed... kidding, but not really. It's hard to get a cool picture of this homely little love of mine.
This is a Biomat, aka my favorite luxurious natural wellness therapy. It's way more than a fancy heating pad! More specifically, it is classified as a class II medical thermotherapy device. Have I lost you yet? A Biomat uses FAR infrared heat to produce a thermotherapy response in the body. It is the same mechanism of action as sitting in an infrared sauna, which would be amazing to have and is definitely on my someday dream list!
I use the Biomat for adrenal support, increased blood circulation, temporary relief from joint pain, stiffness, muscle spasms and it reduces inflammation. It increases tissue oxygenation while reducing pain and stress. The Biomat is enhanced with amethyst crystals that produce the FAR infrared light and tourmaline crystals that produce the negative ions which your skin absorbs.

Biomats were originally used by physical therapists, but for the past few decades have been available for purchase for people like you and me! Believe me, I hear you. When I first heard about them, my response was that this was too 'woo-woo,' even for me. Now it is a normal part of my natural wellness routine, right along with other tools such as elderberry syrup, meditation, healthy diet, walking, supplements and essential oils.
I feel so much better when I have a session on my mat. I usually diffuse grounding essential oils like dream catcher or frankincense while I close my eyes and relax for thirty minutes or so. When I am experiencing a flareup in my neck, I will sleep on the Biomat and feel so much better the next morning.
Doesn't it feel good to feel good? What are some of the natural ways you use to feel your best?
