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!

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). We love to chat about it and share more about how nourishing it really is!

The Stress of Back-to-School

back to schoolFor children and teens, back-to-school time can be very stressful. First of all, the freedom that summer brings is over. Secondly, there can be a much earlier morning routine of breakfast, getting to the bus, etc. And third, headed back into the classroom brings uncertainty of new teacher(s), friends and environments. All of this amounts to stress and tension … and adults feel this, too. (Even if you don’t have children, there’s a “remembering feeling” that goes with this time of year.)

How can Musical Reflections help? Just a friendly reminder that we are here to provide relaxation, peace and calm to every day regardless of the stress you and your family feel. May soothing harp music bring you to a place of balance …

An interesting research study

Research ReportAs I was reading through my Mizzou Alumni magazine, I came across an article that was fascinating and decided to share it with you here!

A technique called iRest Yoga Nidra meditation has been found to be effective in treating PTSD among military veterans. A social work major thought perhaps it would be helpful with domestic violence victims, so she is doing research.

iRest stands for Integrative Restoration and it is instructor-led meditation into deep relaxation, guiding participants through their inner strengths and desires, intentions, feelings, emotions and beliefs. As I read through the article, I wondered how harp music might be helpful in this process/journey. Might be worth a phone call or e-mail??

It will be interesting to see what she finds out in the research….

Appreciating your continued support…

SupportFor the past 15 years (yes, really!), I’ve been blessed to do the work that I am most passionate about, as well as know it’s my deepest purpose for being on the planet at this time. I am most grateful … and I couldn’t do it without your continued support. Thank you!

Here’s a partial list:

  • To all the contacts who say “Yes, let’s do a presentation!” including Iowa Parkinson’s, Summer Institute of Holistic Health and Healing, Mayo Clinic’s Holistic Wellness, Annual Family Caregiver Appreciation, Couples Celebrating Life, Summer Eve of Music, Bacon Club, Day for Cancer Care Providers and many others. Special moments … special memories!
  • To those who ordered “Holiday Blessings” card/CD. Anytime I introduce a new idea/CD, it always feels like a risk. I am humbled by many people who always say “YES!” to my ideas!
  • This past year, I have been much more intentional on having a presence on Facebook, LinkedInTwitter and YouTube. I am amazed at the number of friends, connections, followers … be sure to join in the fun if you haven’t already!
  • To my wonderful team of BioMat distributors. I have loved getting to know you, as well as watching you grow and evolve as you share this wonderful product to help so many others. WOW!
  • For my customers who order CDs and downloads every month to bring relaxation, comfort, peace and calm to your families and those you serve.
