Enjoy the amazing BioMat

biomat

The Richway Amethyst BioMat Professional 7000MX is an amazing healing tool that has changed thousands of lives for the better.   It’s most important function is to produce far infrared rays of light that penetrate deeply into the body, warming all the cells and tissues evenly throughout.  These rays are produced by rows of amethyst crystals that cover the entire surface of the Bio Mat.

The body experiences far infrared rays differently from other types of heat.   The warmth is very soothing and gentle, but it can also build up quite powerfully over time, depending on the temperature setting.  And even though the Bio-Mat itself may become warm during use, it will never get hot to the touch.  This is a big sign of quality in an infrared heating pad.

For detailed information on how it works, please see our Bio Mat Technology page.

The BioMat Professional has certain advantages over the Mini BioMat or the Bio Belt, simply because it can give a full-body treatment.  It produces a more profound shift in the body, and contributes to a more transformative mental experience as well.   In fact, repeated treatments on a BioMat Pro over a period of weeks were shown to reduce stress and anxiety substantially, and even reduce cortisol levels.

Please see BioMat Stress Reduction Study by Dr. George Grant for more information.

The BioMat Pro is highly recommended for both professional and home use.  It is especially recommended when the goals of treatment are whole-body in nature, such as these:

  • Stress and Anxiety relief
  • General health maintenance
  • Chronic and acute pain relief
  • Detoxification
  • Core body temperature support
  • Improved circulation
  • Lymphatic drainage
  • Persistent infection (like Lyme disease or other parasites)

Massage is Medicine

Welcome to the virtual presence of Medicina Massage & Healing!

I strongly believe that Massage IS Healthcare and is an important part of lifetime well being! I deeply enjoy helping align the body through mindful and therapeutic touch. Whether you are rehabilitating from injury or are looking for a way to improve your health and stamina in your active lifestyle, I am here as an ally! Massage Therapy gives the body an opportunity to release stress, pain, and emotional fatigue.

I trust my hands to find the areas of the body that most need attention. I use my 13 years of technical experience and lifetime of having an active body to tune in to the different layers of the tissue. I deeply appreciate feedback and it is of great importance to me for my clients to feel heard and respected in the way I address the body. I bring forth reverence for the purpose of providing a space for healing and deep relaxation.
I am passionate about working with caregivers and healthcare providers. It is known that when we are taken care of, we can take better care of others. We offer such beautiful gifts to our community, and when we give ourselves the time to rejuvenate, we operate in the world with greater passion and integrity.

With bodywork being such an intimate time together, I would love to take the time to  learn about you and your relationship with your body. This is a good time to connect and see if we are a good match.  Please feel free to call and ask questions. I would like to invite you to start enjoying a deeper breath, now…

 

Benefits of Ashiatsu

Ashiatsu is about 20 years old and was developed by a western woman inspired by eastern culture. As a child Ruthie Hardee traveled a lot with her parents and saw how different cultures approached bodywork and healing. As an adult, she became a Massage Therapist. Faced with her own physical maladies, Ruthie was desperate to stay in the massage business and developed Ashiatsu.
‘Ashi’ means foot and ‘atsu’ means pressure.
To receive Ashiatsu feels like receiving a broad, deep, luxurious, Swedish massage. Holding bars above the table, the therapist uses their feet and is able to apply deep, even pressure via body weight and gravity. This manner of working allows the therapist to work deep with less effort and better body mechanics. The bars above also work as a stabilizing tool and a great way to monitor how much pressure is being applied.
The benefits of Ashiatsu include:
Deep Tissue without discomfort
Reduces chronic pain
Release mental and emotional stress
Improves blood pressure
Breaks up scar tissue
Releases bundles nerves
Stretches the spine
Improves body posture
Boosts Immunity
Promotes feelings of well being
