The Biomat Story
The Story of the Biomat with Calvin Kim (the inventor)
In September of 1996 the Kim’s were in the jewelry business and came across an opportunity to purchase a Korean Jade mine. The mine was being offered for six million dollars, which was a reduction from the original price of twenty million.
Originally, the intention was to use the jade in their jewelry business. However, that quickly changed as Calvin witnessed so many people coming to the jade mine for therapeutic benefits. Everyday three to four hundred people were coming to sit inside the jade mine. Calvin was so surprised!
That transaction truly changed the life path for Calvin and Jeanna Kim.
Although they invested in the mine strictly because of its value to the company, for jewelry, they soon discovered they had many buyers seeking the jade in powder form. The Kims learned that one medical device company – RichWay Korea – was using the powder in the manufacturing of its medical mats. Curious, and struggling with several of his own health challenges, Calvin tried one of the jade mats and experienced first-hand the powerful health benefits the mat
Realizing the sales potential of such a device, Calvin and Jeanna convinced their jewelry company to invest in the struggling, under-marketed RichWay Korea. Soon after, in 1997, the Kims took full ownership of the medical device company, along with its laboratory, and RichWay International was born. From there they launched a network marketing company to promote jade BioMat sales internationally. In addition, they developed our other products, the Alkal-life water ionizer and Rejuvena facial system.
In the meantime, they spent years continually researching the infrared, negative ion, and crystal technologies the BioMat utilizes. Initially, it was believed that the health benefits of the BioMat came from the heat of the infrared technology. But after three years of research, it was discovered that the main benefit was not from heat, but rather from the “vibration energy” that the infrared ray provides. And so our RichWay research department dove deep into studying the energy spectrum of the healthiest and most natural frequencies for infrared and negative ions.
Some interesting statistics show that married couples live 7-9 years longer than single people and couples have forty percent less medical issues. Because of this RichWay developed infrared rays similar to the “vibration frequency” shared by humans.
The main purpose of BioMat technology is to target the same energy frequency as love that will naturally nurture and enhance our wellbeing. Yes, you heard it right ~ LOVE.
During the February 23rd teleconference, Calvin explains that the real hidden power of the BioMat are these four things:
- Human Body Infra Ray
- Human Body Infra Ray Frequency
- Human Body Infra Ray Hertz
- 100 Milligauss Electro-magnetic Power – to increase circulation
Calvin continues to share information on the difference between infra ray heat and surface heat. Surface heat is not always comfortable or best for the human body. However, the type of infra ray heat the BioMat provides is specifically designed to safely nurture and support the human body. For instance, when someone submerges in hot water for 30 minutes their body temperature will rise. Then when they get out of the water that body heat will start declining in 10 minutes. Whereas someone that is on the BioMat infrared heat for 30 minutes, the infra ray heat will remain in the body for more than 4 hours. This is the amazing difference between the energy that infra ray versus surface heat provides!
Question and Answer with Calvin Kim (the inventor)
If you have high blood pressure and are advised not to use hot tubs, can you use the BioMat?
In answering this Calvin shares that he had high blood pressure and understands the concern. When someone with high blood pressure gets into a hot tub the heat raises body temperature and may cause the blood pressure and circulation to rise. That said, the infra ray heat the BioMat generates is very different energy. The infra ray penetrates the body like a fine massage and activates the mitochondria. That is the one big difference. The infra ray is very gentle and will assist the stability of blood pressure by activating mitochondria and safely regulating blood circulation. Heat like that in a hot tub will not activate mitochondria and the blood pressure will rise.
Why do we have amethyst and tourmaline in mini-BioMat and Pillow?
The Professional BioMat design has a 10-15 inch negative ion panel. The Mini-BioMat can only host a 3-5 inch negative ion panel. Tourmaline generates negative ions and that is why it is in the Mini-BioMat and Pillow, to increase the negative ions.
What is the difference between the Jade and Amethyst BioMat?
The human body is around 32 million hertz vibration. Jade is about 20 million hertz vibration, which provides a gentle lower vibration. RichWay’s research team discovered that Amethyst is closer to 32 million hertz, which is stronger than Jade and closer to the vibration of the human body. Some people are very sensitive or fragile and the Jade may work best for them. For example, a person with MS and heat sensitivity may be more comfortable with the gentle vibration of the Jade BioMat. Another with chronic back pain may benefit much more from the stronger vibration of the Amethyst BioMat.
How are the negative ions generated?
Simply stated the technology is increase voltage, reduce speed for steady energy, transfer to aluminum panel, then electrical discharge causes oxygen electron to separate and releases to produce negative ion.
Calvin added, that was a good question, however most important question is: Why we produce negative ion?
The number one reason is for emotional support, negative ions make us happy, and secondly, to reduce pain. Pain is an electrical signal to the brain, which is a very strong positive ion. Therefore, when you are on the BioMat the negative ions help with emotions and reduce pain.
Can the first infra ray setting be used to lower body temperature?
Yes. The first setting is 95 degrees, lower than our normal body temperature of 98 degrees.
Is there a difference in benefit from sleeping all night on the BioMat and a 40 minute high heat session?
Yes, there is! The forty minute high heat sessions are to produce HST (heat shock protein), which helps improve the production of T-cells and the immune system. Sleeping on the BioMat is very important, however you would only use a low setting, like number 2 green (104 degrees). Remember, RichWay has done extensive research and the infra rays, negative ions, and crystals in the BioMat technology are designed to nurture and support us both emotionally and physically. When you sleep on the BioMat it is like being in the womb; very comfortable and nurturing.
What do you recommend when someone say’s the BioMat is too hard?
If you place a comforter underneath the BioMat it will provide more cushion when laying on it.
Does synthetic clothing such as polyester affect the benefits of the BioMat?
Yes. Do not wear synthetic clothing on the BioMat, instead wear cotton or natural fibers for the best benefit.
Can you use sheepskin on the BioMat?
Yes, you can, however use natural organic material without synthetics. And, it would be a good idea to use the BioMat cover over it to protect from any sweat released.
