The far infrared and negative ions in your mat come from the heated gemstones. Amethyst, jade, and tourmaline naturally convert heat into far infrared rays and negative ions. To adjust the strength, simply change the temperature settings.
Start with a warm temperature of 37 degrees Celsius (human body temperature) and gradually increase the temperature until you find a setting you are comfortable with. The general rule is higher temperatures for shorter uses and lower temperatures for longer uses. Always stay hydrated before and after using your mat. Note: instead of trying to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, just note how different settings make youfeel.
35-40C: Safe if you have conditions sensitive to heat. Also good for extended (overnight) use. Provides regenerative sleep and recovery. Gives deep relaxation.
45-55C: Cycles of 2 hours or more. Good for fitness and flexibility training. Helps with cardio and your respiratory system, blood pressure and sugar regulation.
55-65C: Cycles of 30-90 minutes (maximum twice per day) help with stress, tension, anxiety, and trauma relief. Increases joint, muscle, and weak tissue support, pain relief, deep relaxation, and mood. Improves the immune system and helps detoxification.
65-70C: Cycles of 30-60 minutes (maximum once per day) to provide sauna-level cleansing and detoxification of heavy metals and cellular waste. Stimulates natural weight loss, aids metabolism, and improves healthy blood circulation.
Actual temperature may vary depending on your model. Gemstones used are natural semiconductors-they heat up quickly and release heat into the air just as fast. To make sure your mat is as hot as you want it to be, cover it with a blanket or towel to trap the heat inside. You may also use a blanket or towel to protect yourself from the hot stones if you feel it is too hot.
