Frequently asked questions
Is the pet mat available in multiple sizes?
Yes - the mat comes in x-small, small, medium, large and extra large.
Can I wash the pet mat?
Yes, the pet mats can be machine washed on warm and tumble dry. This will not adversely affect the adherence of the tourmaline to the mat. Do not use bleach.
What are the health benefits of tourmaline?
Tourmaline is a therapeutic mineral that enhances the flow of chi energy and reduces oxidative stress, to support health and wellness. Tourmaline also increases blood flow, blood oxygen concentration and can even help to generate new blood vessels.
What is so special about the tourmaline in the mats?
The crystal tourmaline emits far infrared energy, which stimulates cells and tissues to recover and heal more rapidly. Used in saunas for healing for thousands of years, far infrared energy has been considered a promising treatment modality for healing.
What is tourmaline?
Tourmaline is not a single mineral, but a group of minerals with a similar crystal structure. Different tourmalines contain different elements. Tourmaline is found in many different colors. Tourmaline is often confused with other types of gemstones.
What is tourmaline made of?
Each variety of tourmaline has its own chemical formula, but tourmaline always has a six-atom ring. The elements found in tourmalines can include aluminum, boron, silicon, chromium, oxygen, hydrogen, potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, iron and lithium. Tourmalines are among the most complicated chemical formulas of all minerals.
Since aluminum can be toxic, should I be concerned about the aluminum in tourmaline?
Absolutely not, since the aluminum stays in the tourmaline and never enters the human body.
Why does it feel like the tourmaline products are producing heat?
The tourmaline products are very energy efficient. Those particles absorb body heat and then transform that heat energy into far infrared energy. That therapeutic energy is then transmitted back into the body.
What is so special about far infrared energy?
Far infrared energy can stimulate cells and tissues to recover and heal more rapidly. Far infrared has been used in saunas for healing for thousands of years. It is considered a promising treatment modality for healing.
Are there other energies that tourmaline can emit?
Tourmaline crystals are piezoelectric, which means that when a crystal is heated, from body heat, compressed or vibrated, the tourmaline can convert that energy into an electrical potential charge. This charge will form at opposite ends of the crystal. This produces negative ions, which are associated with a more alkaline body pH, scavenging free radicals, reducing inflammation, healing at a more rapid rate and anti-aging.
Tourmaline crystals are also pyroelectric, which means that they can generate a weak electric current from being stimulated by heat, compression, or vibration. This is like having a tens unit without batteries.
Is the tourmaline particle size important?
Yes! Tourmaline powders exhibit improved far infrared emission properties as the particle size decreases. Tourmaline works best with nanometer sized particles, which are the smallest particles that can be manufactured today. That is why we use nanometer size tourmaline particles in our products.
How long can I keep the Miracle Tape on?
The Miracle Tape can be worn for a minimum of three days. It is also fine to shower, bathe, or swim with the tape on. Those activities will not reduce the therapeutic value of the tape. The tape will get wet since it is designed to “breathe” and not to trap water. When wet, simply pat the taped area with a towel and it will then fully dry on its own.
How do I best remove the Miracle Tape?
We recommend removing the tape in the shower, with soap and water.
What is the material of the pet mat?
92% Polyester, 8% Acrylic with the active ingredient of watermelon tourmaline.
Are the pet mats safe for pets
Yes - tourmaline is non-toxic for pets (and humans) but if your pet somehow consumes the mat, as with any substance your pet consumes that they should not - contact your pet’s veterinarian.
