What each functions does and what is the recommended heat and time?
When you lay on the hot amethyst mat, Far Infrared Light penetrates tissues.
It may be better to start with the lowest or medium temperature levels 1-3 or 30-45°C and short sessions of 20 - 30 minutes and to have not more than 2-3 sessions a week to see how your body reacts and then gradually increase the temperature and the length of the sessions over time. Of course, if you are an experienced FIR sauna user, you can start with the maximum temperature level or even use two mats (sandwiched procedures). Still, we always recommend checking with your doctor first.
If everything works fine, for pleasure, people use amethyst heating mats from one hour on high temperature to 12 hours on warm temperature daily. You can try and see what kind of sessions gives you the most benefits.
Monochromic 660 nm Red Light has the same effect on the skin, but it does not penetrate tissues.
You can have your first red light photon session for 30-60 minutes. Use your mat protector with a 3-D air mesh layer to cushion it and eliminate stone pressure if necessary during sleeping, hot stone, and PEMF, especially for long procedures, but better use red lights without cover.
Negative Ions generated by mat always when it is ON or utilizing your body's own heat when you lay on it, and they have a good refreshing effect.
Air Ion function generates anions into the air to clean it, and also these ions are absorbed with breathing. It may be a good idea to turn the Air Ion function ON always while the mat is preheating.
PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field) function generates low-frequency magnetic pulsations. If you do not have contraindications, you may try PEMF on the lowest heat level for 10 minutes for the first time to see how it works.
- Check the list of contraindications.
- Consult your health professional
- Drink a lot of water and replenish minerals before, during, and after your procedures
If you feel comfortable, you may increase the duration, intensity, and frequency of sessions and combine different functions.
