More on the BioAcoustic Mat

BioAcoustic MatAs sound healing increases in popularity, the public continues to be more informed and asks for sessions with a variety of instruments – harp, crystal bowls, gongs, Native American flutes, etc. Science is also catching up to share specific benefits of using music therapeutically and as a healing modality.

The BioMat’s parent company company (Richway International) recently introduced the BioAcoustic Mat (which we rep!). It is vibroacoustic therapy for natural relaxation and renewal via certain frequencies connecting to different areas in the body. It does this through a three specially-designed speaker system:

  1. A powerful transducer delivering low frequencies (30-68 Hz) for a deep, large muscle cellular massage.
  2. Two smaller speakers playing higher frequencies (52-88 Hz), targeting small muscle groups.

The BioAcoustic Mat’s sound system vibrates and stimulates the nerves in the spine, deep tissue and limbic systems, and affects brain activity to drive an emotional response of well-being. This combination of music and an elevated emotional state activates the auditory nerves that connects to all of our muscle tissue, helping to induce relaxation on a physiological level.

The music in the BioAcoustic Mat was created by Dr. Lee Bartel. Four categories (energize, relax, sleep and stress relief) and 12 therapeutic tracks allow you to address your personal needs. Tracks include digital instruments to soothing nature sounds and range from 3 to 6+ minutes.

Details of Targeted Benefits

The BioAcoustic Mat comes in two sizes:

  • Professional (fits on a massage table – $3,000 + $60 shipping)
  • Single (fits on a twin bed – $3,500 + $100 shipping).

Introducing a New Product!

BioAcoustic MatWe are reps for a wonderful product called the BioMat. The BioMat‘s parent company (Richway International) recently introduced a new product! And it is directly in Musical Reflections’ “wheelhouse.” It is called a BioAcoustic Mat and while we haven’t tried it yet, we’ve heard rave reviews from those who have used it.

The BioAcoustic Mat is vibroacoustic therapy using a combination of music and vibrations to help improve overall health. (If you already have a BioMat, you place the BioAcoustic Mat under the BioMat for use.) This unique therapy uses transducers or speakers that are located in the mat. The speakers create vibrations that go directly into areas of the body to ease symptoms. This can feel like a whole body, deep cellular massage.

Research shows a couple of specific vibroacoustic therapy benefits:

  1. Relaxation is an outcome.
  2. It can also help pain management and relief.
  3. Patients who used vibroacoustic therapy increased their range of motion and kept muscles stimulated.

For example: a National Institute of Health research study found “those who listened to music while feeling the vibrations experienced a significant reduction in pain, more so than those who only listened to music.”

Vibroacoustic therapy utilizes soothing music – same mission as ours! The music is created in such a way to complement relaxation and pain management mentioned in the research above. Also, watch this blog for additional info. In the meantime, if you would like to learn more, we’re here to answer any questions at tami@musicalreflections.com.

More on the BioMat

As the evenings are cooling off (at least in the northlands!), I love to share a product that I rep called the BioMat.

After using it personally for almost eight years, it has made such a difference in my overall health and well-being, as well as many of our happy customers.

Pro BioMat Set with New Controller The BioMat is a Class III FDA-approved medical device (#2954299). It is a powerful healing tool utilizing the triad of1) Far infrared heat – infrared heat penetrates deeper and more evenly than a heating pad.2) Amethyst crystals – amethyst is a detox which helps us to eliminate toxins from our body. It is also used in meditation and is a very spiritual stone.

3) Negative ions – negative ions make us feel good and are found in waterfalls, mountains, oceans and forests – all the places we love to vacation. (On the flip side, positive ions make us feel sluggish and lethargic.)

The BioMat’s health benefits include:

  • Promotes relaxation and sleep
  • Relieves pain and eases joint stiffness
  • Increases blood circulation
  • Improves immune function
  • Removes waste and toxins.

Bio-mats are especially popular and has been proven effective with people who have these issues:

  • Sore muscles, sprains, muscle spasms and soft tissue injuries
  • Lower back pain or injuries
  • Arthritis and muscular-skeletal ailments
  • Fibromyalgia and other auto-immune diseases.

Available in several sizes, click here for more information. Half-price shipping may also be available – e-mail me about this. I look forward to connecting with you about this awesome product!

The Harp and the BioMat

A month ago, I mentioned the BioMat on this website. I actually got interested in the BioMat because of the harp! As you probably know, the harp is a very physical instrument – both in carrying it around and probably even more importantly, you hold your arms up for the duration that you play. Consequently, the neck and upper back hold a lot of tension because of the hands/arms position and the physicality of the instrument.

As I shared this information with the BioMat’s parent company (Richway International), they decided to feature this story via video. Click below to learn more and I’m happy to share additional information about how the BioMat has helped me and many, many others!

Detoxing – A New Year’s Resolution??

Pro BioMat Set with New ControllerWas detoxing one of your New Year’s resolutions? There is a lot of current interest in detoxing our bodies. Perhaps it is because of our toxic environment – from the air we breathe to the foods we eat to the chemicals used on our land, etc.

There is lots of information available on the topic of detoxing, as well as some unique approaches. One of those unique approaches is a product that we rep and love for detoxing called the BioMat. And how specifically does detoxing happen with the BioMat? Well, one of the three elements in the BioMat is amethyst and it is a powerful crystal that has been used for centuries with the specific intention of detoxification.

The professional-size BioMat has 22 pounds of amethyst so this makes it a very potent healing/detox tool. Because of this, it is important to start with short sessions on low to medium heat. This helps avoid detoxing too quickly. If you over-use, you may detox too quickly. This results in feeling nauseous, head-achey, dizzy, etc. While this won’t hurt you, there’s no need if you take the recommended approach of slow and low.

It is also vital to drink lots of water to detox. We suggest drinking at least one glass of water before you use the BioMat and be sure to drink another glass of water after you complete your session. This does two things: 1) helps eliminate toxins from your body, and 2) avoids getting dehydrated (which can make you feel nauseous).

Finally, how will you know that you’re actually detoxing? You’ll detox through sweat, urination and bowel movements. You may see some significant changes in one, two or three of these ways. Here’s a couple of examples: 

  • A nurse put herself through nursing school by cleaning houses. Softscrub was the chosen cleaning solution. When she started using the BioMat, her whole body reeked with the smell of Softscrub … and her cleaning jobs happened 15 years earlier! She was detoxing these impurities from her body that had been stored in the cells for many years. From a health perspective, isn’t it great to get these toxins out of the body?!
  • A dental hygienist commented that her bowel movements were orange when she first started using the BioMat. She was eliminating chemicals and impurities that she held in her body from her work environment in the dentists’ offices of 40 years.

In summary, releasing toxins is critical to overall health, vitality and wellness. Let us know if you’d like to continue this discussion … we are happy to chat more about this amazing product!

(Please keep in mind that these are general ideas and you should always consult a medical professional before making a change in your individual care plan for your overall health.)

Virtual Harp Summit 1 and 2

Virtual Harp SummitIn late February, one of my fellow harp therapists called to order a BioMat. In our conversation, she asked, “Are you going to ‘attend’ the Virtual Harp Summit (VHS) 2?” I had to admit I didn’t even know what she was talking about!! She explained that this was the second one and it was going to be about harp techniques. (The first VHS was focused on creativity and expression.) In total, both VHSs were 35+ harpists from all around the world and it was a wonderful training “from the living room.” My friend who called was definitely “attending” the second one. During the week when the Summit is “live,” the sessions are free; after that, it is $97 to have access to the trainings in perpetuity.

I signed up and completed both VHS 1 and 2 – what a fabulous experience! All told, it was approximately 50 hours of lessons, trainings and house concerts. To get to hear all these masters from around the world perform was simply amazing!!

It inspired many ideas … stay tuned to watch for more information!

Nourishment in these Challenging Times

NourishmentHow are you doing and specifically, how is your nourishment going?! Do you feel like you are taking exquisite care of yourself and giving yourself all the nourishment you need? Danaan Parry from The Essene Book of Days reflects on these challenging times, “Outer darkness calls for nourishment within.”

Over the years, we have mentioned caring for yourself, but now, because of all the political craziness, it feels even more important than ever. What are your ideas of nourishment that work for you? We love to hear your thoughts…we learn from you (and we’re hoping you learn from us!!).

One thought that we love to share for nourishment is a product that we rep called the BioMat. It is an unusual triad of elements: 1) infrared heat, 2) amethyst crystals, and 3) negative ions. Available in several sizes (professional-size, mini, Pro BioMat Set with New Controllersingle, queen and king), it helps with pain relief, joint stiffness, opening up the body’s circulation, promoting relaxation and sleep, and releasing toxins. Specifically, the BioMat is effective for arthritis, fibromyalgia, lower back pain, neuropathy, cancer and autism, etc. If you would like more information about this unique product, feel free to give us a toll-free call at 1-844-4BIOMAT (1-844-424-6628).
