How the Healthy Wave Mat Works
We already mentioned that the Healthy Wave mat gives you a full spectrum of 5 different therapies but how does it do it?
Far Infrared Heat Therapy
Far Infrared Heat Therapy relies on heat which is something that all organisms need to survive. What Far Infrared Heat does differently than say a regular old heating pad is that it allows the heat to penetrate several inches deep into your skin. Far Infrared Heat Therapy is activated when when the crystal gemstones in the mat are heated up. When the heat penetrates several inches of your body it also brings with it negative ions which help neutralise and balance the abundance of positive ions in your body that are known as free radicals.
Free Radicals come from being around an abundance of technology all day which can lead to a variety of different symptoms such as migraines, Oxidative Stress, back pain and sleep deprivation just to name a few.
Far Infrared Heat Therapy when related to the Healthy Wave Pro mat utilises the three different crystals found in the mat, 20 lbs of amethyst, 48 jade stones and 40 tourmaline stones that look like buttons located at the top layer of the mat. The Far Infrared Heat penetrates within the 5- 14 um (4 to 8 inches) within your body and has setting of a 3, 6 and a 12 hour auto shut off timer. The 12 setting is specifically for when you want to sleep on it. This insures that you don’t wake up with burns should you have it on a high temperature setting. The maximum temperature it goes up to is 55 degrees celsius.
What is the Best Temperature to have the Mat at and What is the most Effective?
The best temperature that i like to start off at is 45 to 55 degrees Celsius. Healthy Wave reccomends 30 – 50 degrees Celsius. As you get used to the heat you can start alcimatizing your body to higher temperatures. The maximum temperature this mat goes up to is 70 degrees celsius. Keep in mind that Far infrared heat does not have to be scorching hot. It actually is most effective when it is at a warm temperature around 30 – 55 degrees Celsius.
Some Benefits of Far Infrared Heat Therapy Include
Negative Ion Therapy
The bi- product of crystals and far infrared heat infused together, negative-ion therapy is used to neutralise too many positive ions (or free radicals) that are present within your body. In natural landscapes there is an abundance of negative-ions present which is part of the reason why you feel great and energised when you are in nature.
When you are surrounded by technology there is an abundance of positive ions which lead to your cells clustering. This clustering does not allow your cells to perform like they are supposed to which can lead to common symptoms such as arthritis, heart diseases, alzheimer’s disease and strokes to name a few if untreated.
The Healthy Wave Mat pro can give off more than 1500 Negative Ions per square inch per minute generated by the combination of far infrared heat and crystal therapies available within this mat. The crystals that are negative-ion conductors are the amethyst jade and tourmaline stones with amethyst argued to be the highest producer at 1500 negative ions per square inch Jade and Tourmaline produce anywhere in the range of 700 to 1500 negative ions per inch. With consistent daily sessions of 20 minutes or more you can start experiencing some of the benefits of Negative-Ion Therapy such as:
Made up of Three types of crystals the Healthy Wave Pro Mat uses a combination of 25 lbs of crushed amethyst crystals, 48 Jade rocks and 40 Tourmaline rocks that are the buttons that are on the top layer of the mat. This therapy is a process where one or more crystals give off a certain type of energy that is synchronised to your body . They use positive energies such as negative ions which help improve your immune system, mood which helps you feel rejuvenated. They have also been known to improve a patient’s healing time from various different injuries by improving circulation of oxygen in the blood flow. If your blood lacks oxygen it can lead to a lot of different types of problems such as heart disease and problems with your lymphatic system.
The different kinds of crystal therapies and their benefits can be seen below
Amethyst has a good amount of negative Ions which in turn provides great calming energy and is a great crystal to use for relaxing.
- It is a very conductive gemstone which generates it’s own magnetic field which in turn provides a great negative-Ion input when it is heated.
- When heated the infrared rays can penetrate the body 6-8 inches to allow for cellular metabolism and detoxification to occur.
- This stone is nothing new, as it has been used for healing for thousands of years because of it;s ability to create negative ions and generate far infrared rays.
- Provides a negative ion output of 1500 per cubic centimetre.
- Amethyst is known to activate the crown or third eye chakra which is connected to a state of dreaming which is why it is known as an excellent stone for sleeping.
Jade is a good all round crystal that is the in between of the calming stone of Amethyst and the more energetic stone of Tourmaline.
- Jade is a great heat absorber
- Adding Jade to Amethyst and Tourmaline enhances the benefits of each crystal including increasing the levels of ions and producing Far Infrared Rays
- Jade produces around 700 negative ions per cubic centimeter
- Jade opens the heart chakra which promotes love, compassion, forgiveness and trust. When this chakra is blocked it can lead to the opposite effects including grief, loneliness, depression and fear!
Tourmaline has the highest negative ion level which gives you more energy and allows you to be energetic throughout your day.
- Produces 1500 + negative ions when heated up, although this stone still produces neg ions even when it is not heated up.
- It is a superconductive stone which can generate natural infrared heat
- Tourmaline produces energy at 8-13 Hz per second which is the identical frequency of our alpha brain waves.This state can bring us back to a state of calmness all while increasing energy and decreasing fatigue. This stone is great for improving mood frequencies
- It’s high production of negative ions helps counteract high frequency EMF fields that surround you through your day to day life.
- This is a good grounding stone which creates a connection between your base chakra and the earth. By having your base chakra grounded you physical body can regain it’s strength and stamina and helps individuals fight demotivation.
PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) Therapy
Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy (or PEMF) is used to recharge your body similar to how a charger would charge up a rechargeable battery. It does this by means of stimulating and rebalancing your cells. It does this by running within wavelength forms that are are very similar to what our bodies are used to running it.
The Wavelengths run at 7.8 hertz which runs within our alpha brainwave frequency of 7-13 Hertz. PEMF therapy produces multiple bursts which take your cells through magnetic polarity field cycle which effectively charges your cells while you are laying on the mat. When your cells are fully charged your alpha brain waves reduce depressive symptoms and greatly enhance your creativity .
The Strength of the Wavelengths in Healthy Wave’s PEMF Mat is 3 guass . This setting allows you to get quick PEMF bursts in a shorter period of time as opposed to other competitors where you need longer sessions. Healthy Wave also run at a very close proximaty to the Earth’s magnetic field that is 7.8 Hz compared to 7.83 Hz which is the Schumann Resonance . These PEMF bursts allows your body to be synchronised closely to the earth’s magnetic field which is where our frequencies are supposed to be. There is an automatic PEMF setting on the Healthy Wave Controller that gives you PEMF for 20 minutes on and then 100 minutes off.
PEMF Therapy also has the ability to clear your body of bad EMF’s that are emitted from the technology that we are surrounded by. Some of the biggest transmitters of bad EMF’s include mobile phones, televisions, radio transmitters and radar detectors.
What is the difference between Healthy Wave Pro`s PEMF and the Multi Wave Mat?
The Pro PEMF mat has less options compared to the Multi Wave PEMF Mat. For one of the Multi Wave Features 313 billion combinations of PEMF 5 Intensities, 25 frequencies, 2 wave forms and 3 different pulse rates. While the Pro PEMF mat features 1 intensity, 1 frequency and 1 wave form as well as 1 pulse rate. The Healthy Wave Pro PEMF mat is more of an all in one type of mat while the multi wave specialises more in PEMF therapy. That being said it still uses far infrared heat therapy, crystals, Photon Light and Negative Ion therapies.
The PEMF cycle of the Healthy Wave Mat Pro is it turns on for 20 minutes then turns off for 100 minutes. It does this for 3 cycles.
Some Benefits of PEMF Therapy includes:
- Improved Healing of an injury
- Improved Sleep Cycle
- Improved Cellular Regeneration
- Improved Immune System
- Increases your lymphatic system and blood circulation
- Protects you from bad EMF’s
Photon Light Therapy (Lower Level Laser Therapy)
Healthy Wave PEMF Mats, Healthy Wave Photon Light Mats, best crystal healing mats
Photon Light Therapy is the process of having light delivered into you skin penetrating the epidermis, dermis and surrounding tissue. It is used to repair tissue and provide pain relief to cells within it’s reaching area. Different colours cover different wavelengths:
-650-950nm (Dark Red) – 1 inch
–600-650nm (Red) – 0.6 inches
-570-600nm (Yellow to Orange) – 0.3 inches
-495-570nm (Blue to Green) – 0.16 inches
-380-495nm (Violet to Deep Blue ) – 0.12 inches
The most effective waveLength is the Dark Red colour which penetrates through the epidermis, dermis and part of the hypodermis. When this colour light penetrates your tissue it can help regenerate your the cells in your connective tissue similar to how photosynthesis helps power up a plant.
Some Benefits include:
EMF Protection Layer : Protect Yourself from EMF’s
All Healthy Wave Mats features an EMF Filtration system which blocks bad EMF’s that come from electricity. This allows the Mat to deliver all 5 of its therapies without being hindered by bad EMF’s that come from electricity.
My Personal Healthy Wave Mat Review
I first heard about this the Healthy Wave Mat through a friend, so I went to his house to try it out. I had just finished working out doing exercises that are taxing on the back such as squats and dead-lifts. He had the Healthy Wave Pro PEMF Mat Amethyst Jade Tourmaline infused with Photon Lights . I also decided to try the Amethyst Tourmaline Obsidian Infrared Heat Pillow as well to combat some neck pain I had experienced after my workout.
We had just finished eating and I decided to give the mat a whirl. Upon laying down on it I turned on the photon feature, PEMF therapy and preset the temperature for far infrared heat to a setting I liked. I layed on it for a total of about an hour. I layed on my back for about 20 minutes then flipped over and did my front side. After laying on the mat for that half hour I started feeling relaxed and back discomfort that I had after the workout had disappeared. Because I have not had much sleep that past few days I did feel a bit drowsy about 15 minutes. I was curious about this so upon doing some research I found out that my body was in a state of healing that would normally occur while I would be sleeping as a result drowsiness did occur.
After using the Far Infrared Heat therapy I felt no soreness from the squats and dead-lifts that usually give me back discomfort.
When I tried the PEMF feature I started to notice the drowsiness started to wear off and I had a renewed sense of energy. With 20 minutes of PEMF therapy rated at 3 gauss it was almost like my body went into hibernation and now was fully refreshed and awake. This was probably due to the fact that I work around computers all day and my electromagnetic field was compromised before laying on the PEMF mat.
I also tried this PEMF mat out after playing hockey as part of a comparative test with the competing Biomat brand. When using the biomat 7000mx I found that after a half hour of use I found temporary pain relief for about a few hours before I started feeling discomfort again. You can read more about how the Biomat performed here .
With The same Healthy Wave Mat I used Far Infrared Heat (coupled with Crystal and Photon Light Therapy) to test out the Far Infrared feature on both mats head to head for the same time period. I felt permanent relief from back pain with the Healthy Wave Mat for the rest of the day.
I originally wondered what the difference was. It turns out that the extra crystals from the Healthy Wave mat were the difference makers as the variety of different crystals were able to penetrate deeper into the tissue of my back. This was done by providing extra negative ions to avoid clumping done by an abundance of positive ions. This helped ease my inflammation that was causing my back to ache.
Overall I was extremely impressed with this mat in that it did it’s job extremely well and fulfilled the promises that were set by Healthy Wave Mats.
What’s a Good time period to use the mat for and When can you Use it?
There are several strategies that you can do for the use of this PEMF mat. The general time period of usage I like to do is typically 45 minutes every day but you can use the mat for as long or as little as you want as long as the temperature setting isn’t too high.
Some people I have talked to like to go on the mat in the morning and the evening in 20 minute sessions while others like to actually sleep on the mat. You can also use the therapies all at once or strategically use them at different times. Some people like to use the four therapies (Far Infrared, Crystal, Negative Ion and Photon Light) during the day and use the PEMF Therapy at night or while you sleep.
Where can you use the Pro PEMF Mat?
Depending on what size mat you got the most preferred place is the floor but they can also be used on firm mattresses and firm areas.
The Full Sized/ Large Mats: Firm Mats Can be used on the floor, bed, carpet and anywhere close to an electrical outlet. The softer style mats can be used almost anywhere.
The Medium Sized Mats: Depending on what type of Healthy Wave mat you have place it on the floor or mattress. There are also mats that fold and can be placed on a chair or couch.
Small Mats: These are the most adaptable mats as they can go almost anywhere inside your home that is close to an outlet including places such as a chain, seat, floor, mattress etc.

The Mat and Controller
The Mat Layers
consists of 14 layers which include:
- Layer 1: Durable Easy to Clean Synthetic Leather
- Layer 2: High Density Mesh Cloth that Attached the Jade, Tourmaline and Photon Discs
- Layer 3: Crushed Amethyst Crystals
- Layer 4: Bamboo Carbon Fiber Material used for releasing Far Infrared Heat, adjusting humidity and absorbing water in damp conditions

- Layer 11: Ecological non woven cloth which properly distributes the heat
- Layer 12: Heat absorption and release layers that stores the energy of the far infrared rays that distributes and releases heat
- Layer 13: Ecological Compression Cotton
- Layer 14: Thermal insulation layer that prevents overheating, and the conuction of heat going downwards instead of up
- Layer 15: Waterproof eleusine cloth which insure the device is protected from wear and protects the mat.
The Controller was easy to use but it did have that prehistoric feel about it. If definitely lacked the the modern sleek look of the LED controllers found in Bemer and Biomat. Simplicity can also be a good thing when it comes to these mats, a lot of these time these LED controllers start running into issues and often times they are a real hassle to replace and if they are outside of the warranty zone they can be down right expensive! Make sure to read the warranties of each mat manufacturer properly.
The Controller of the Healthy Wave PEMF 5 Therapy mat consists of a switch, three buttons and a dial. I will briefly explain what they do but for more information you
- The Switch: Turns the mat on and off
- The Dial: You can select the temperature you want the Far Infrared Heat to be running at by turning the dial clockwise and counterclockwise. The temperatures range from 30 C (85 F) to 70 C (160 F). For sleeping do a lighter temperature range that is within the 35 C to 40 C range. For full Far Infrared Heat Therapy Benefits get the temperature up to 45 to 55 C. If you want maximum heat in a shorter time frame go to 60 C to 70 C for up to 30 minutes of use. I personally prefer the sauna use in the lower end of the spectrum at 60 C.
- Button #2: This is the timer button that allows you to set how long you want the mat to run for . If you press once it goes to 3 hours, twice it goes to 6 hour and if you press this button three times it goes for 12 hours.
- Display #4: Displays the Temperature that the mat is at. It will show the temperature you set it at for a few seconds before reverting back to what the temperature in the mat is.
- Button #5: This is the Photon Light Button that can just be turned on by itself or with the other therapies.
- Button #6: This is the PEMF button that can work with the other therapies or separately. It’s time cycle is that it comes on for 20 minutes and shuts off for 100 minutes, then it continues the cycle for up to 12 hours if left on.
Healthy Wave Certifications
Before going into production Healthy Wave Mats have to be cleared with the FDA. Any Mat manufacturer must go into the process of filling out a 510 (k) and getting approved before getting the green light to sell these devices. This ensures that proper labeling, descriptions and risks are properly documented to the customer before use. Unlike many Mat manufacturers of it’s type Healthy Wave is actually based in the USA, so their means of productions have to comply with the FDA.
When trying out the Mat I looked at the instructions and everything was indeed properly documented including warnings to pregnant women and individuals who are using a pacemaker.
Warranty and Guarantees
Healthy Wave Mats have a 45 Day 100% Money Back Guarantee that is the best in the healing mat world. Most other Healing/ PEMF Mat manufacturers have a maximum 30 day money back guarantee and most don’t even give you your full money back after 7 days! Take a look at a case study I did that directly compares Healthy Wave with Biomat.
The main difference is that Healthy Wave is not an MLM (Multi Level Marketing) Company where a plethora of resellers each having their cut in the selling process which slashes the full money back return time to 7 days and under.
The mat comes with a Full 15 Month Warranty on all Healthy Wave PEMF mat products that were purchased from them. The means that within that first year if there is any issue or problem whatsoever, the mat will be replaced free of charge and shipping costs. This assures that you get the best quality product for your money.
On top of this Healthy Wave also offers a 5 Year Extended Warranty on their Controllers. This means that if anytime within that 5 year period that your controller stops working you can get it replaced for free. Controllers are usually the most complicated and therefore more prone to glitches of all the parts associated with these mats. Other Mat Manufacturers do not come close to this offer. Often times it costs anywhere from $120 all the way to $350 to replace the controller of a mat provided by other manufactureres.
