What’s a BioMat®?

The Richway Amethyst BioMat® is truly one of a kind! Not only is it an FDA approved medical breakthrough, it’s also a unique innovation in biotechnology containing 17 different therapeutic layers that make up the mat, including tourmaline and amethyst crystals which naturally produce and conduct Far Infrared Rays and Negative Ions. NASA discovered the ability of mineral oxides to generate far infrared rays and Richway’s scientists and medical engineers combined the three properties of Far Infrared, Negative Ions, and Amethyst Therapies into the BioMat® for a true mind, body, and spiritual healing experience.



  • Ease stiffness and joint pain

  • Improve the Immune System

  • Remove Toxins

  • Increase blood circulation

  • Speed recovery

  • Improve skin tone

  • Burn calories, control weight

  • Reduce stress and fatigue


The natural Amethyst and Hyron cotton layers of the BioMat® generates Far Infrared rays of 6-12 Microns that are easily absorbed by the human body.  Amethyst is also considered one of Nature’s super conductors and aids inner alignment, balances the body’s subtle energy system and helps clear energy blocks. Amethyst crystals alone have been shown to enhance relaxation, aid sleep, and improve mood.  The gentle warmth of Far Infrared heats your body from the inside out, unlike regular heating pads, to provide a deeply warming effect, relaxing muscles and melting tension. Infrared heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many forms of neuralgia including arthritis, bursitis, muscle spasms, sprains, joint stiffness and many other musculoskeletal ailments.

Negative Ions are abundant in our natural world and found in deep forests, mountains, waterfalls and oceans.  The Negative Ions produced by the natural Tourmaline in the TOCA™ layer of the BioMat® is a major natural element that provides both energy and relaxation to the human body and has been shown to deliver a molecular level therapy that accelerates and deepens the healing and cleansing process.


Both Far Infrared and Negative Ions result in increased blood circulation and stimulate the release of built-up toxins and waste.

What can you expect during a BioMat® session?

During a session you relax while fully clothed on the BioMat® on top of a comfortable padded massage table in my tranquil studio. Pleasant, soothing music is played to help you relax. You may find it helpful to focus on your own personal affirmations and intentions during the treatment as positive thinking, meditation and visualization can offer profound and cumulative benefits to the body, mind and spirit. But it’s also completely acceptable to just relax and allow your mind to wander!

What can you expect after a BioMat® session?

After a session, you will want to take a few minutes to just sit quietly and drink a glass of water while your body adjusts to the energetic changes. For a few days after your session you may find you have more energy or sometimes less - and both are completely normal experiences! A lack of energy may indicate your body is cleansing and detoxifying at deep cellular levels and diverting your normal energy to promote that function. The movement and removal of toxins from the body can also contribute to fatigue and it’s very important to drink a lot of water to help this process proceed smoothly while respecting your body’s need for rest, quiet and good nutrition.
