The Richway Bio-Mat combines state of the art Far-Infrared Light and Negative Ion Technology with the healing power of Amethyst to deliver top notch professional therapeutic results. The Bio-Mat is approved by the FDA as a medical device, capable of the following functions. The Bio-Mat:
  1. Improves Circulation & Cardiovascular Function
  2. Improves Immune System Function
  3. Relieves Pain
  4. Burns Calories and Controls Weight
  5. Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness
  6. Reduces Stress and Fatigue
  7. Improves Skin

Many insurance companies consider the Bio-Mat a viable treatment option for pain as well as other musculo-skeletal problems. The Bio-Mat delivers the benefits of a Far Infrared sauna for a fraction of the price. The Bio-Mat is a totally unique medical device producing both Far Infrared as well as generating 6.8 microns of Medium “Human” Infrared. According to NASA research, Human Infrared normalizes a variety of important physiological functions, especially glandular functions. This Human Infrared feature of the Bio-Mat makes it different from any other infrared device on the market.
In addition, traditional infrared saunas and devices utilize 120 volt AC current. AC current has been proven to be highly detrimental to human health. AC or alternating current disturbs the human biological field. The Bio-Mat protects your body from the harmful AC current by providing a 5 tiered buffering system in which the AC current is converted to DC (direct current) which is bioelectrically compatible with the human body.
The Bio-Mat also delivers Negative Ions, energizing the body for optimal health. The Negative Ions delivered through the Bio-Mat are delivered directly to the body through the skin’s surface via conduction. This greatly differs from ambient air ions delivered through the popular negative ion generators used for air cleaning, which NASA reported only positively effecting 25% of people. The direct conduction of negative ions allows for an immediate
response and change in the body’s electrical field for 100% of the people, whereby cell channels are activated for a rapid return to the body’s optimal physiological state.
The Bio-Mat is further enhanced with Amethyst Crystals, known for their calming and healing effects since ancient times. The BioMat is a  revolutionary healing tool, ideal for health care professionals or anyone interested in improving their overall health and well-being. 
The “Amethyst Effect” was scientifically demonstrated through spectral analysis demonstrating a change in infrared light when refracted through amethyst crystals. Scientists experimented passing far infrared light through a variety of substances, including various gems, glasses, and plastics. Amethyst was found to be the only substance which clearly changed the spectrum of infrared light. Wave forms mimicked patterns similar to the human voice according to scientists. While no theory has yet been proposed regarding the Amethyst Effect, scientists hypothesize that the infrared light passed through the amethyst releases over 20 million years of information which is made available to the human body for healing purposes.
The field of Far Infrared Crystallography explains this effect in further detail. FIR refracted through amethyst crystals organizes FIR into geometrical patterns with higher bio-compatibility. Korean researchers propose that addition of the amethyst allows for greater increase in the utilization of the light by the human organism.
Far Infrared Rays (FIR) penetrate 6-8 inches into the human body. These rays not only benefit the skin and muscle tissue on the surface of the body, but penetrate into deeper tissues. The FIR penetrates into the lymph glands, blood vessels, nerves, as well as key organs. The rays optimize the health of these tissues in a number of ways. First discovered by NASA, Scientists propose that among the energy spectrum coming from the sun,
that the Far Infrared Ray waves are by far the safest and most beneficial electromagnetic energy available for the human body, directly affecting all metabolic and cellular functions.


1. Improves Circulation & Cardiovascular Function
Far Infrared Waves raise body temperature warming the blood and expanding the blood vessels. There is an increase in peripheral blood flow and volume, resulting in improved circulation and heart function.

2. Improves Immune System Function
Far Infrared Ray’s deep heat raises your body temperature, inducing an artificial and healthy fever. As the body works to combat the “fever,” your body’s immune system is activated and strengthened. Combined with the detoxification of harmful toxins and waste products, your overall health and resistance to disease is improved greatly.

3. The Bio-Mat Relieves Pain
The deep heat of far infrared 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.

4. The Bio-Mat Burns Calories and Controls Weight
As you relax in the gentle heat of Far Infrared your body is actually hard at work, producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. According to a Journal of the American Medical Association report, a single far infrared session, burns as many calories as rowing or jogging for 30 minutes.

5. The Bio-Mat Eases Joint Pain and Stiffness
Far Infrared heat therapy is widely used to treat patients suffering from many kinds of arthritis and musculo-skelatal disorders. In addition, it has been proven effective in the treatment of sprains, neuralgia, bursitis, muscle spasms, joint stiffness and many other musculo-skeletal aliments. Stiffness, aches and soreness that come with aging are reduced or eliminated using FIR.

6. The Bio-Mat Reduces Stress and Fatigue 
The gentle warmth of the far infrared rays helps to sooth nerves and relax tight or knotted muscles. The end result is reduced stress and improved energy.

7. The Bio-Mat Improves Skin
The Bio-Mat’s Far Infrared and Negative Ions penetrate the skin deeply, helping to detoxify impurities from the skin and lymph. In addition, exfoliation is greatly enhanced by the Far Infrared, rapidly removing dead skin cells. Increased circulation draws your skin’s own natural nutrients to the surface, rejuvenating your skin’s health and appearance.

8. Removes Bodily Toxins and Assists in Detoxification
Far Infrared helps to detoxify the body in several important ways. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, 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, and uric acid. In addition to sweating, far infrared is capable of removing toxins via several other bodily systems.


Blood Alkalization & Blood Purification
When negative ions are applied to the body, the Calcium and Sodium circulating in the blood are ionized. This changes the blood pH into an alkaline state and has an overall alkalizing effect on the body. The normal pH of human arterial blood is approximately 7.40 (normal range is 7.35-7.45), a weak alkaline solution. Blood that has a pH below 7.35 is considered “acidic”, while blood pH above 7.45 is alkaline. Proper blood pH is essential for optimal health. It has been noted that the negative ions applied to the body are helpful at regulating blood pH.
Reviving the Cell
When the amount of negative ions in the blood increases, there is an increase in inter-cellular communication. Cellular metabolism is facilitated, and as a result there is an increase in cellular nutrient uptake and cellular hydration. In addition, cellular waste materials are more efficiently excreted. With the increase in cellular metabolism, optimal cell function is rapidly revived. Further information is found in the Nobel Prize in Physiology(1991) for the discovery of ionic channel function.
Diseases Associated with Ion Deficiencies
Indoor environment, city living, cars, exposure to electronic devices, EMF’s (electro-magnetic fields), and environmental pollution all result in increased positive ions in one’s body, tilting the ratio of ions towards the positive. This results in a physiological imbalance, which may have  detrimental health consequences. Too few negative ions in our body can cause a number of diseases. Some of the health problems associated with an imbalance of ions in the body include: anemia, allergies, shoulder pain, lumbago, rheumatism, neuralgia, headaches, kidney problems,  imbalanced autonomic nervous system function, insomnia, and fatigue.


The Bio-Mat is different from any other Infrared or Negative Ion generating device on the market. Two other common products existing on the market at this time: the Aesta Mat and the VitaMat. Sellers of these mats claim they are equal and deliver the same benefits for a lower price. This is quite misleading. First, the Bio-Mat is the original mat and the other mats were created by competitors in an attempt to duplicate the technology for a lower price. One manufacturer even claims to produce their mat in the same facility where the Richway Bio-Mat is produced. The Bio-Mat differs from the Aesta Mat and Vita-Mat in the following ways.
1)6.8 Micron Infrared – Bio-Mat generates a special spectrum of photon infrared at 6.8 Microns through a special sensor which amplifies the amount of 6.8 infrared exposure. The benefits of 6.8 micron Infrared or “Human” Infrared are described in an earlier section. The Vita-Mat or Aesta Mat do not have this additional sensor and so do not deliver the extra benefits of 6.8 micron infrared.
2)10 Hz Infrared – The Bio-Mat includes another sensor which generates 10 Hz infrared. World renown scientist Dr. Chian, of China has  demonstrated that 10 Hz IR acts as an information carrier when passed through various materials, including human and animal DNA, pheromones, as well as gemstones such as Amethyst. Bio-Mat’s with 10Hz IR sensors were tested along with a control group of Bio-Mat’s without the 10 Hz
sensor. The most potent healing effects occurred only under the group with the 10Hz sensor. This means that infrared alone was not responsible for the healing, but rather the addition of information being released from the Amethyst as hypothesized by researchers. As one Korean Research scientist said, “It appears that with infrared we are talking about energy, but with the addition of amethyst, and the 10 Hz IR, we are now talking about energy plus healing information. This is the critical difference between the use of infrared saunas, infrared mats  (without 10Hz infrared or amethyst) and the Bio-Mat”. This may explain why so many reports of healing have occurred over the 9 year history of the Bio-Mat. Consumer beware, the other mats do not contain this sensor.
3)Bi-Metal – Bio-Mat uses the highest quality Bi-Metal in its mats. Bi-Metal is used inside Infrared Mats as a heat sensor to control heating functions within the mat. The Bi-Metal can break over time with usage, rendering the mat ineffective. Whatever mat you choose to purchase ask your seller about the quality of the Bi-Metal used in the mat, and ask about the warranty. There is only one type of ‘High-Quality, Long-Durability BiMetal’ sold on the market today. This Bi-Metal is manufactured by Texas Instruments and was originally developed for military usage. The Richway Bio-Mat is the only company that has access to and uses this high quality bi-metal in their mats. This means a guaranteed longer life of the mat, reflected in Richway’s warranty and repair policies. The additional cost of the expensive Bi-Metal is one reason why Richway Bio-Mat’s are more expensive, in addition to the inclusion of the 6.8 micron sensor, the 10 Hz IR sensor, and Amethyst. In addition, Richway recycles all of the Bi-Metal from its mats. Consumers are free to choose their products but should be first educated about the differences between the existing products.


Unlike an electric blanket, the Biomat does not get hot when it is turned on. The heat comes from friction generated within the body from the effects of the far infrared rays. It warms the inside of your body and the part of the Biomat making contact with your skin gets warm.  Should the  temperature of any part of the Biomat exceed the set temperature, the sheet current is cut off by thermal sensors distributed throughout the Biomat. When the Biomat reaches the selected temperature, then the Negative Ions come on and will stay on until the Biomat needs to raise the  temperature. It comes with an external control box which allows you to adjust the desired temperature and running time (between 2, 4, 8, or 12 hours). As an added safety feature, when the controller is set to 122 F or higher, it will automatically step down to 113 F after 4 hours. Far Infrared Rays penetrate 6 inches into the body. Therefore, these rays not only benefit the muscles on the surface of the body, but all cells including blood vessels, lymph glands, and nerves in the deepest parts of our body.

  1. The RichWay TMBIOMATMX uses Ceramic Fiber (Patent1386560). 
  2. The RichWay TMBIOMATMX has a special function that emits Negative lons and transforms Positive Ions to Negative Ions within the human body. It provides us with strength and energy. 
  3. The Super Fiber Materials generate far infrared rays (6-12 microns) that the human body can easily absorb.
  4. A Special layer of double fiberglass and Carbon completely cuts off harmfull Electromagnetic waves.
What does the Biomat EMF interceptor do?
The Biomat EMF Interceptor acts in the same way as a lightning rod, safely conducting the EMF energy away to ground.  With this feature,  you can effectively block exposure to EMF for yourself and your family.


Heat Shock Protein is known to protect cells from thermal stress. In order for our body to prevent HSP secretions and to allow recovery, our brainactively secretes hormones called Endorphins, which are neurotransmitters responsible for happy emotions and the relief from pain.

Lay down on the Professional Biomat and cover yourself with the Mini Biomat
Without Enzyme activity, there is no life.  The aging process tends to damage our blood vessels, which worsens the circulation and makes us feel colder. Decreasing physical exercise naturally lessens the production of heat and the control center of the brain that responds to the changes in temperature.


Increases Blood Circulation and Strengthens the Cardiovascular System.
As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation.
Burns Calories and controls Weight.
As you relax in the gentle heat of the Biomat, your body is actually hard at work, producing sweat, pumping blood and burning calories. 
According to a Journal of the American Medical Association report, in a single Infrared Ray sauna session, you may burn as many calories as you would rowing or jogging for 30 minutes. So you lose weight-not just water.
Reduces Stress and Fatigue. 
The gentle warmth of your Amethyst BIOMAT gives you an overall massaging effect, soothing jangled nerves and knotted muscles. You'll feel rejuvenated and renewed, restored in both body and mind.


Feel rejuvenated and renewed, restored in both body and mind. 
Body temperature and metabolic activity. 
Mitochondria is produced by body heat, and Heat Shock Protein by Infrared Rays heat and vibration. The Far Infrared Ray is both an electromagnetic wave and an energy wave. Long frequency infrared ray waves are considered to be beneficial to our body. They replicate mitochondrial activities. 
Comparison of Normal heat and Biomat Infrared Rays 
The following images show examples of two different types of heating. One is the simple application of any warming technique imaginable, while the other is Far Infrared Rays that cause the molecules inside the mitochondria of the cell to resonate and be activated. One of the main focuses of  attention during the 21st century will be on these methods of heating the body by the Far Infrared Ray.
