Starting Out - Go Easy
The best way to start is to put your Biomat™ on a low setting when beginning. Fifteen minutes to a 1 hour session is all you want to do at first. It's best to ease into using the infrared therapy to give your body a chance to accept the detoxifying effects. Pushing all the toxins out of your body will make you feel a little sick at first and you don't want to do it all in one session. We recommend doing a half-hour session each day for three weeks.
Make sure that you find a quiet place with good air circulation and we recommend throwing an all cotton sheet over the Biomat or cotton cover and after the first three weeks, up the time by thirty minutes every month. Alternate turning up the heat with staying on it longer over a period of months. If you do sleep on it, keep it on a very low setting. Athletes can benefit from a little higher setting for short bursts to soothe muscles after a workout. Professional sports teams can benefit greatly from the healing effects of a Biomat.
So start slowly. Begin with the low settings (green or gold) in short 15-30 minute sessions.
Allow your body to become used to the Biomat once your body has had its initial detoxification. The low gold settings create a gentle warmth great for two hours
or more for sports and flexibility training, cardio and respiratory aid, blood
pressure, sugar regulation.
All settings are therapeutic and versatile. Establish a goal and find the setting that best fits that goal. Meditation and visualization can
offer profound and cumulative benefits to the body, mind and spirit.
Initially you may feel bursts of energy, or even a few extra naps are
normal. Your body can be cleansing and detoxifying as your cells are
releasing toxins that they've stored for years. You may feel tired and/or even a little sick at first because your body is pushing out the toxins and heavy metals, the junk, in your system. Don't be discouraged, just keep using the Biomat in short sessions, maybe extend them a little every time, and you'll eventually feel great.
