The Truth About the Richway Amethyst BioMat

By Jennifer LyallLiv

There are some things you should know before you consider buying the Richway BioMatMy biggest piece of advice is to do your research before you buy it.


(note: it's the Richway Amethyst Biomat and not Ridgeway Bio mat, people sometimes hear the company name incorrectly)

Soemtimes wellmeaning and unbiased resources can have some incorrect and misleading information on basic product information like crystals in the product. Like any proactive consumer, you will find the correct information as you do your reasearch.  Let me share in my personal product review of the BioMat, plus explain some basic information about the BioMat and Richway.


The Biomat's impact on my health and my family's health:

I first tried Richway’s Amethyst BioMat back in 2008 at a wellness show.  I was tired from walking the show floor and after just 20 minutes of lying down on the BioMat I felt refreshed, it reduced my fatigue.  And I noticed I slept really well that night.  I tried it again at an information session the following week, and also noticed I slept really well again.

At this point I would typically tell you more about my personal experience, however, to ensure compliance with the US FDA and FTC I can't share all the details.  I can tell you that it has helped me and my family with:

  • sleeping better, 
  • relieving muscle pain, 
  • reducing/eliminating lower back pain 
  • and helping muscle strains.  

It's helped my son recover from sports injuries and my 80 year old mother recover from a day of playing in the garden or shovelling snow. I can tell you is that it helped me in a big enough way that it inspired me to want to feel that way every day, so I bought a mini BioMat.


I have personally witnessed the health transformation in people using the Amethyst BioMat.  I have seen an injured colleague of mine go from looking stiff, to walking with ease within 24 hours of using the BioMat.  By using the Biomat, she relaxed the muscles that were injured which allowed her to do some gentle stretches which speeded her recovery. 

I have received many letters, notes and hugs of gratitude from people with various health issues after using the BioMat. My son uses it regularly when he's strained muscles in sports. It brings me such joy to know I am helping people on their journey to good health.

Healing Amethsyt Crystals

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.


What Crystals are in the Amethyst Biomat and BioBelt?

You can see the crystals in the Professional Biomat and the Mini Biomat in the video below.

The Professional, Single, Queen and King size Amethyst Biomats contain:


  • Amethsyt crystals that you can see in the ridges of the mat
  • Black Tourmaline within the unique TOCA catch layer of the mat
The Mini Biomat (seen below) cotains:
  • Amethsyt crystals that you can see in the ridges of the mat
  • Black Tourmaline that you can see in the ridges of the mat
  • Black Tourmaline within the unique TOCA catch layer of the mat
Richway Mini BioMat
The Biobelt contains:
  • Amethyst, 
  • Green Jade, 
  • Tourmaline, 
  • Crystal, 
  • Citrine, 
  • Topaz, 
  • Elvan and 
  • Tiger's Eye.


Who SHOULDN't Use the Biomat:

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 , 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.

If you are interested in trying the BioMat before purchasing it, here are a few opportunities to consider: 

  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. You can contact me for availability.
  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)


TIP: Easiest way to try the Biomat in the United States:

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.


Where does the BioMat ship from?

The Biomat will ship from one of the locations listed on Richway's marketing materials:

R&L Corporation -South Korea- this is where the Amethsyt Biomat is made.  Korea will ship to most of Asia (except China & Japan), Australia and New Zealand.

Richway & Fuji Bio Inc. - Hawaii, USA- The majority of orders in US $ are processed through the Richway USA office.  Orders going to North America and South America are shipped from the Distribution centre in Illinois.

Shaoxing Richway Trading Co., Ltd, China - Orders to destinations in China are shipped from the Chinese office.

Richway Europe B.V. - The Netherlands  Orders for Europe and Africa are shipped from The Netherlands.  These orders can be processed in Euros.

Richway & Life Japan Corporation - orders for Japan are processed and shipped from the Japanese office.


Who to Buy the Biomat from?

You cannot purchase the Biomat from Richway directly.

Some websites appear to be the "Official Biomat website," but they are simply authroized Independant Sales Associates (ISA), like me.

All Sales Associates must charge the price specificied by Richway.  All orders are shipped from their distribution centres (that is also how you know you are getting a new product).


Look for Awesome Customer Service

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 also help my clients to get the right size of BioMat for their needs.  In fact I've been representing the BioMat since 2008 and in all of those years, I have only had 2 people return their BioMat, because they bought the wrong size.

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.  


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.
