Since ancient times, numerous cultures around the world have recognized that many degenerative conditions can be caused by low body temperature.
Increasing the body’s temperature by just 1.8 degrees is enough to increase immune function by up to 40%, encourage the production of hormones and enzymes by 50% and stimulate your metabolic rate by 12%.
However, unless you regularly visit saunas, hot springs or sweat lodges, it’s difficult to reap the benefits of hyperthermia (raising your body temperature).
Far infrared mats are designed to raise your body temperature in a non-invasive way in your home where you can heal and regenerate. Far infrared is a form of electromagnetic radiation (light), with wavelengths between 3 micrometers to 1,000 micrometers.
These mats are about the size of a standard yoga mat or a smaller travel version. They are composed of 17 layers of various biotech materials that produce far infrared rays. This includes a layer of healing crystals that emits negative ions and boosts your mood and neutralizes free radicals in the body and gentle magnetic fields that penetrate deep into tissues and organs.
Far infrared rays can penetrate up to 6 to 8 inches into the body. This deeply penetrating heat encourages a “healthy fever” that promotes the production of antibodies and white blood cells that kill off invading pathogens.
To get the benefits, just lay the mat on the floor, plug it in and select the heat setting. Allow the mat to come to temperature for 20 minutes before using it.
The benefits are many.
The sweat glands are stimulated by improved circulation along with the fever caused by far infrared rays, allowing the body to release cellular wastes and toxins to help detoxify the body. This supports the elimination of carcinogenic substances, heavy metals, uric acid, cholesterol and other toxins.
The comfort of heat is soothing emotionally and physically. If you have tight muscles because of stress, the healing heat from a far infrared mat can loosen tension. As a result, your cortisol levels will drop.
The healing heat from these mats encourages fast recovery, reduces inflammation in the joints, muscles and connective tissues. It also helps heal damaged tissues by helping the body deliver oxygen-rich blood to the areas and carry away metabolic wastes.
One study investigated the effects of far infrared rays on chronic pain associated with fibromyalgia. Of those who received therapy once per day, two to five times per week, all reported a significant reduction in pain of up to 50%. After 10 sessions, participants reported pain reduction up to 78%.
If you’ve ever experienced hot yoga, these mats can give you a similar experience by warming the body as you pose, as well as the extra benefit of the healing far infrared rays.
How does it work? Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) grounds you in the earth’s magnetic field for a full-body reset, while Infrared’s deeply-penetrating heat doubles your dose of recovery and detox. When combined into the Go Mat, these therapeutic technologies create the ultimate recovery tool.
