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!

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.)

Well-Being and the Harp – Part III

Well BeingMental well-being for harpists is an important component of our overall health. To begin, a quick question to ponder … when you get a challenging passage in the music, what do you tell yourself:

  • Here comes the hard part? OR
  • I’ve got this!

What we’re talking about is our self-talk, which also links to setting intentions. To define intentions, they are similar to:

  • Goals
  • New year’s resolutions
  • Prayer
  • Dreams (heart, not sleep!) –> manifest

Our energy follows our thoughts so if we think it, this is where our energy goes. This is why it’s important to think good thoughts. It is almost like a brain re-program or paradigm shift. For example:

  • Is our language filled with hope and possibilities or is it of drudgery, negativity?
  • Does our life go smoothly and flow with ease and grace or are we tripped up with trauma/drama?
  • Have you noticed if we tell ourselves we’re tired, going to be a rotten day vs. I have good energy to accomplish what I need to today – it impacts our day!

These statements become our energetic blueprint and connect us to what we manifest. We are encouraging mindfulness which is positive mental health and well-being for you, as a harpist, and for those you serve. Our final blog post of the four areas of well-being will be next week, on spiritual well-being.

Holistic Products on Shark Tank!

Shark TankI have written about Shark Tank on this blog before … it’s one of my favorite TV shows! I love the entrepreneurial spirit, learning about other people’s ideas and businesses, as well as what creates a successful “pitch” to the financial sharks of the show.

The products that interest me the most are – you guessed it – holistic, au naturel products that contribute to society’s overall well-being and health. There have been a number of these pitches during the tenure of Shark Tank.

Without failure, Mark Cuban is always a nay-sayer, Mr. Negative, rolling his eyes and making fun of these holistic companies. I find this most offensive … and frankly, I feel like muting my TV every time he talks (regardless what the product is).

These holistic companies have a lot to offer and the world is leaving Mr. Cuban behind. He misses out on many great opportunities … and, of course, the entrepreneurs are probably grateful he’s not their new money manager! These holistic companies continue important missions while Mark Cuban “sleeps” in his own negativity. As they say, “Carry on, healers of the world!”
