Shop for your specific mat under PRODUCT CATEGORIES menu.
What Size of Mat do You Want?
The first thing to consider is what size of mat you want. We recommend the full sized mats as they allow the average person to lay their entire body on them.
- Small (20”x20”) – Good for sitting on or laying a small part of your body on. Ideal for putting on a chair to sit on throughout the day.
- Medium (32”x20”) – Big enough that it can cover half your body such as your back or legs. A nice size that you can put on the couch to lean against as well.
- Full Sized (60”x24”)- Sightly smaller than a full size mat.
- Full Sized (72”x24”)- Big enough someone 6 feet or under can cover their entire body. Recommended for most individuals.
- Full Sized (74”x28”)- Big enough someone 6 feet or under can cover their entire body. Recommended for most individuals. These are designed to cover a full massage table.
- Large(76”x32”+)- A little longer and wider than the full sized mats for the taller or wider individuals to more effectively cover the entire body. There is more room on this mat to roll around and lay in different positions.
- Queen & King sized (80”x60”+) – Large enough to fit 2 people on. A good choice to use on beds.
Which Crystals do you prefer?
Our mats are made of 4 main types of crystals: Amethyst, Jade, Tourmaline and Obsidian. Each crystal has different subtle energetic characteristics.
You can read about the properties of each crystal under the "Crystals" menu section to see if you have an affinity to any particular crystal.
If you really prefer one crystal over the others you should consider getting a mat just made of that crystal, otherwise we have many mats which use all of the crystals so you can receive all their benefits.
All crystals provide the similar type of far infrared heat; the energetic differences are very subtle and there is no best crystal or wrong choice if you are having trouble deciding.
Do you want a soft or regular mat?
There are 3 different flexibilities of mats.
Soft – Soft mats are very flexible and can be easily wrapped around or rolled up. They have no stiffness to them at all. They are excellent for wrapping around and forming to the body. They can also be used on couches or chairs so form into the seat.
Regular – Have some stiffness to keep their shape with some bendability. They are designed to be folded up for storage and are best used on flat surfaces such as the floor or bed. The majority of our mats fall into this category unless it is deemed soft or the PEMF stiff mats.
Stiff – Only PEMF mats are stiff as the components inside cannot be bent. They also fold up for storage. They need to be used on a hard surface.
Do you want a specialty use mat?
We have various mats designed for specific purposes that are made to wear or put on specific areas of the body or can be used in specific situations.
- Car mat for driving and chair mat for the office etc.
