At 72” x 24” this mat covers your whole body while you are lying still on it. If you wish to sleep on it and may roll over consider a larger mat. In the top layer, stones are held in place with silicone glue. The glue conducts heat and transfers it very well to the stones resulting in higher negative ion levels. The glue will keep the stones in place for decades. The downside of the glue is the possible need to let the mat air out for a few hours before initial use. Use it on the floor or on top of your bed.
This mat has the ideal combination of both tourmaline and jade so you get to enjoy the benefits of both instead of having to choose. Tourmaline has the highest level of negative ions, with slightly lower levels of far infrared. Natural tourmaline is physically similar to charcoal so it cannot be used in its natural state. We crush tourmaline and mix it with ceramic to make tourmaline ceramic. This way it is sturdy and the process also increases the negative ion output. Tourmaline is known to have an energizing effect. Jade is somewhere between the soothing amethyst and the energizing tourmaline. Natural jade is polished and an ideal size is used on the mats.
HealthyLine mats incorporate a few different systems that reach the common goal of improved health. Each HealthyLine mat provides negative ions, far infrared rays, and heated gemstones. The gemstones naturally emit negative ions and far infrared, and when heated the stones become activated and provide benefits at a greater level. This is made possible with many functional layers. Essentially, a wire that heats up goes through the mat. That wire is lined with silicon coating that filters bad EMFs from the mat. Additional layers help with heat distribution so the mat heats up evenly all throughout. The bottom layer is a waterproof material, while the top layer is high-quality synthetic leather.
For a sauna effect, use the mat at 60-70°C for about 30 minutes. For extended use set it to about 45-55°C, according to your comfort. It is suggested to place a towel on the mat, instead of lying on the stones directly, to protect the mat from sweat. Human body temperature is approximately 38°C so that would be an ideal point to start. Gradually increase the temperature to test your tolerance. Set your temperature lower for longer usage and higher for shorter periods. Always drink lots of water before, during, and after use to prevent physical effects of dehydration. Safe for pets and children.
