The Truth About the Richway Amethyst BioMat

By Jennifer LyallLiv

There are some things you should know before you consider buying the Richway BioMat.  My biggest piece of advice is to try it before you buy it.  Let me explain in my personal product review of the BioMat.

I first tried Richway’s Amethyst BioMat back in 2008.  At the time I was intrigued by how it relieved and rejuvenated my body and helped me a good night’s sleep.  

As a sleep deprived mother with 2 young children, a good night’s sleep was precious.  I found that when I slept on my mini BioMat that I could function the next day, rather than feeling like Fred Flintstone with my eyelids propped open with toothpicks to keep me awake.  Instead of the typical 3 pm crankiness and crash, I made it through the day.  I discovered that while my sleep was still interrupted by the kids, the sleep I got on the BioMat was much deeper.  The amethyst crystals and black tourmaline stones in the mat helped me get into that Delta State and feel well rested.  This is my personal review and testimonial of my experience with the Amethyst BioMat.

I have since learned so much more about the powerful attributes of the BioMat.   To really get a good understanding and appreciation for the BioMat I encourage you to do your research and attend an information session about the BioMat.  The 20 minute  video on my website also provides you with a good overview (if it is too difficult to stream this video you can read a transcript). However, it does not go into detail about the science behind the product the way I do in my presentation.

I have since learned a lot about crystals and the incredible healing power of Amethyst crystals.  They are powerful, yet gentle in their healing abilities.  They tend to resonate with most people and it is often the first crystal people are drawn too as they learn about stones and crystals.  I have since developed an affinity and appreciation for crystals having accumulated a small collection of 50 different stones.

 I have personally witnessed the health transformation in people using the Amethyst BioMat.  I have seen an injured colleague of mine go from looking like a stiff whiplash victim after she hurt her back when she missed the last step in her home, to walking with ease within 24 hours of using the BioMat.  By using the Biomat, she avoided physiotherapy and pain killers. 

I have received many letters, notes and hugs of gratitude from people with various health issues (ranging from sports injuries to cancer) after using the BioMat.  It brings me such joy to know I am helping people on their journey to good health.

However, it is important that you know that the Amethyst BioMat is NOT for everyone. You can see more on this list of contraindications from Richway. For instance, if you are pregnant or if you have metal plates, pins or screws in your body, I would not recommend using the Amethyst BioMat without your doctor’s permission. (It is typically safe on low heat, but do check with your doctor)

I have also had a number of people who have rented the BioMat that have not noticed any significant difference in their health.  Some don’t like the warmth of the Bio Mat and others did not have any serious health issues, so they could not see a change.  Also, in some instances, it take several weeks or months for the healing that happens on the inside to be noticeable on the outside e.g. psoriasis.

I recommend that you try the Amethyst BioMat before you make the investment.  There are a number of opportunities for you to try the Richway Amethyst BioMat:

  1. Rent the BioMat from a distributor in your area.  I'm located just west of Toronto, Ontario and rent out the Professional and Mini BioMat
  2. Try the BioMat at a health and wellness event.
  3. Attend an information session.  I typically host or co-host 2-3 sessions per year.
  4. Visit a practitioner who uses the Amethyst BioMat in their practice and have a BioMat session.  I offer 30 minute and 60 minute BioMat sessions. (I have a few contacts in the Greater Toronto area and in British Columbia like Victoria and a few in the United States I can refer you to)

If you decide to buy a Richway Amethyst BioMat, I suggest that you get to know the representative who is selling the product line.  Buy your BioMat from someone with impeccable customer service.  For instance, I always check in with my clients that have purchased a BioMat to see if they have any questions and ensure they are enjoying it.

I have received several phone calls and emails from people who have not heard back from the person they ordered their BioMat from.  Because I believe in the integrity of the Biomat, I have helped those individuals get the answers to their questions when their representative didn’t respond.  Don’t misunderstand me, Richway International stands behind their product.  They are a member of the Better Business Bureau and have been acknowledged in the business community for their high standards.  The problem is that not all people who sell the Richway product line operate at the same level of standards as Richway does.  

Here's one more tip for American's who are considering purchasing the BioMat but want to try it first: If you can't find a distributor closeby to rent the BioMat from or to try a session, consider buying a BioMat anyway.   Richway has an amazing return policy- they will give you a full refund if you return it within the first 7 days of receiving it.  So, when you order the Bioif you end up not liking it, you will only have paid out the cost of shipping the BioMat.  To explain further, when you buy the BioMat you pay for the product and shipping; and if you don't like it, they refund the value of the BioMat 100%.  That means that you will be out of pocket the cost of shipping only, which is the same or cheaper than renting the BioMat for a week.

In closing, I sincerely believe that the Richway Amethyst BioMat has made a huge difference in my life and in the health of my family, friends and clients.  However, each individual is different.  Just because one health tool worked for one person, it doesn’t mean it will help someone else, so if you can, try the BioMat before you buy it. If you have any questions at all, I invite you to contact me.  It would be an honour to help you on your road to good health.
