How to Use the Far Infrared Biomat Heating Pad for Arthritis Pain Relief

According to the Arthritis Foundation in the United States, arthritis is a condition that affects an estimated 91 million adults in the US alone.  It includes over 100 different types of joint diseases.   The Richway Amethyst Biomat is a Health Canada and FDA Approved Medical Device that is effective for relieving arthritis pain.  This post describes how you can effectively use the far infrared Biomat heating pad for arthritis pain relief.

What is the Biomat?

It’s a high quality, large heating pad that uses Far Infared heat to transfer heat deep into the body.  It works differently than a typical heating pad (which uses electrical current going through a resistant wire to create heat), as it uses parts within the control panel, unique fabric and crystals to create far infrared rays.

It comes in several sizes, ranging from the Mini Biomat, which fits conveniently on a chair, to Professional, which fits on a massage table to the larger sizes that fit a Single, Queen or King Bed.

How Does the Biomat Relieve Arthritis Pain and Stiffness?

Deep Penetrating Heat

Different from a typical heating pad, the Biomat uses warm, soothing far infrared heat to relieve arthritic pain.  The far infrared rays provides relief deeper than creams or patches.  Plus there is no greasy residue or funny smell.

“I have been suffering from Osteoarthritis for 10 years.  I strongly dislike taking medication and was willing to try anything to get rid of the pain.  I immediately began to feel relief within the first week… I am total sold on the healing power of this wonderful product and am recommending it to others.”  K Allen

Increased Mobility

The relief from pain and stiffness that the infrared therapy brings, allows you to finally get back to enjoying life again, moving around more easily.

“My work is exceedingly physical and I have had arthritis and mobility issues for decades.  The Biomat is one component in an overall strategy to stay healthy and mobile, and tobe able to continue working as long as possible.  For the record, the Biomat is my only pain treatment; I take no pain relievers of any kind, either over the counter, or prescription, ever.  Nowadays, I have little to no awareness that I have arthritis at all.”  Catherine

Increased Circulation

The gentle warmth of the Biomat increases your blood circulation.  Wherever you apply it, the increased blood flow will bring oxygen and nutrients, naturally reducing the inflammation in that area and supporting your body’s natural ability to heal.

“By my fourth [Biomat] session, not only was I walking up the stairs easier, I was actually able to walk up a steep hill in my neighbourhood!  The Biomat sessions really helped to reduce the pain and inflammation I was feeling so I have not problem recommending it to anyone with arthritic problems.”  Allison

The Biomat is very easy to use and incorporate into your daily life.  It’s bigger than a typical heating pad, so you can apply heat to a larger area.
