The name amethyst translates in Greek to, “not drunken.”
An ancient Greek myth explains this seemingly odd name. According to the myth, the god Bacchus was angry and had vowed to descend a hoard of tigers upon the first person who crossed his path. Amethyst was on her way to give thanks at the shrine of the god Diana when she happened upon Bacchus. Before the tigers could eat Amethyst, she was saved by Diana, who turned her into a clear crystal. Bacchus, remorseful for the fate he had so recklessly caused the girl, poured the juice of grapes over the stone as an offering, and thus bestowed the crystal with its unique purple coloring. The Greeks gave amethyst crystal meaning, perpetuating a belief that it could inhibit the intoxication of all who wore it.
While the story of Amethyst is simply a myth, its healing properties are not. Which is why it is the first and one of the main components that make up the Biomat.
The Biomat itself holds amethyst crystals inside the hem and radiates healing far infrared rays throughout. Amethyst Crystals have been known to deliver both infrared and negative ions naturally. In this case, the Amethyst crystal is not only used to focus the FIR (Far Infrared Rays) energy of the Biomat but also helps to calm and protect the mind and nervous system.
In conjunction, the deep penetrating power of Far Infrared Rays stimulates every system of the body from the inside out. As Infrared is radiated into the body, it resonates with the frequencies of organic molecules and cells causing them to vibrate, heat up and expand. In turn, blood vessels, capillaries, nerve endings, and organelles expand, making the body feel fully charged and energized in just the same way a bell struck at regular intervals vibrates and moves faster and faster. This causes a net increase in metabolism helping cells to divide faster, nervous signals to move faster and healing to occur at a much-accelerated rate.
These two components, amethyst, and Far Infrared Rays, working together makes our Biomat an integral piece of our Neurotherapy process. The Biomat allows the healing of both the mind and body to be infinitely more effective. So, while it may be subtle or even be overlooked, our clients are sure to feel the difference in just a few sessions with the Biomat as their foundation.
