Tourmaline is a therapeutic mineral that has been used for millennia in Eastern medicine and around the world. Tourmaline enhances the flow of chi. The tourmaline particles that are infused into our pet mats are directly bonded to the fibers of the material. The tourmaline absorbs the pet’s body heat and then transmits that energy back into the pet’s body in the form of therapeutic far infrared light. That energy is converted by the tiny nanometer size tourmaline particles in the pet mat, into the form of far infrared energy. This process is called thermal-photonic conversion. Far infrared saunas have been used historically for their therapeutic value.
Tony the Tourmaline Dog
Tony the tourmaline dog is a Pomeranian. He is 13 years old, which is 91 years old in “dog years”. He has been happily using tourmaline products for over half of his life. Could that be why he still looks and acts like a puppy?
Pet owners report that our pet mats have been found to significantly calm down their pets during transport, as well as to sooth them on a daily basis. Tourmaline has been shown to encourage the production of alpha brain waves. Alpha waves encourage restful sleep. The tourmaline also helps to increase serotonin levels. Serotonin is called the “feel good hormone”. Increased serotonin has a calming effect on both pets and humans and promotes deep, healthy and restful sleep. We also make products for people too.
