PEMF Mat as a Meditation Tool
Nowadays, there is evidence that suggests that people are experiencing higher levels of stress than in previous decades. This is, in part, due to factors such as work, financial demands, the fast-paced society we live in and even, in some cases, social media.
During these past years, a practice that has become quite popular is meditation. Although it has existed and been used for centuries in many cultures, more and more people are discovering and practicing it now. Nowadays, there are also several devices and technologies one can include in their meditation. One of these is the popular PEMF Mat, which can be a great addition to your practice, and here we will explain why.
This kind of mat is designed to emit low-frequency electromagnetic waves that are thought to stimulate the cells and tissues of the body, promoting healing, reducing inflammation, and improving circulation. PEMF mats can be used for a variety of health concerns, such as chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, and fatigue. They are becoming increasingly popular as a non-invasive, drug-free way to support the body's natural healing processes.

What is meditation?
Although, as we mentioned, this practice is becoming more popular each day, there are still people who are not sure what meditation is and how it really works. But no worries, we will explain the basics so you can get a better idea.
Meditation is a mental practice that involves training the mind to focus on a particular object, thought, or activity to lead your body to a relaxed and calm state. This is not new, it has been practiced for centuries in various forms and is used to reduce and cope with stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental and physical health problems. It can be done alone, conducted by a teacher or you will even be able to find meditation apps that guide you through it.
There are several types of meditation as well, like mindfulness meditation, meditations that help you concentrate better, transcendental meditation and many more.
How can PEMF Mats help with meditation?
PEMF Mats work with pulsed electromagnetic brain waves and have been proven to help relax and reduce stress, which facilitates a meditative state and ultimately leads to deep meditation and relaxation. In a way, these mats can take your meditation to the next level. PEMF Mats get you connected to the Earth’s magnetic field and help you feel grounded and in sync with your environment, which allows you to enjoy your meditation practice even more.
Our PEMF Mat in particular includes two healing technologies in one single tool:
One of these, as we have already mentioned, is PEMF therapy, which provides a reset for the whole body. And then, we have combined this therapy with infrared heat, which penetrates deeply into the muscles, providing a soothing and comforting sensation, and can also help to relieve pain and stiffness. Additionally, infrared heat can stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for the body's "rest and digest" response, leading to a decrease in stress and an increase in relaxation.
Moreover, our mat has different levels that you can choose from depending on what you want to accomplish. One of these is thought especially for when you are feeling stressed or want to use the mat during a moment of relaxation and mindfulness.
All of this combined makes our PEMF Mat ideal to include in daily meditation practice and you will experience the benefits from it from the beginning. Please, keep in mind that not all PEMF Mats are the same, so some may not work with infrared heat, so it’s important to check the product specifications before buying one.
Best ways to start meditating with a PEMF Mat
First things first, you should find a spot to meditate. With the PEMF Mat, you will have no problems finding the right spot, wherever it is since you can easily move it around and place it where you prefer. We recommend finding a quiet and comfortable place and you can be sitting or laying down during your meditation, as you prefer.
Once you find your spot and get the PEMF Mat ready, you can already start with your meditation practice. Here are some tips to get started: close your eyes, take some deep breaths in and out and calm down your mind and body.
How long should I meditate?
The length of meditation can vary depending on everyone’s individual needs and preferences. Some people find that just a few minutes of meditation a day can be beneficial, while others may meditate for 20 minutes or more.
If you are starting with this practice, maybe you prefer to start with less time and a guided meditation and see how you feel and what you would want to try implementing in your practice. Probably at the beginning, you are not meditating for longer than 5 minutes, but if you really try to do it every day and enjoy the process, you will start feeling its benefits basically from the beginning. And if you would like to try meditating with the PEMF Mat, you can also do so even in your first practices.
Now, with all this information, we can better understand why practices such as meditation, mindfulness and breath work have become so popular. In our fast-paced world where we experience constant change, we all need some time to stop, reflect and recharge. Taking care of our health, physical as well as mental, should be a top priority in our lives.
This is why meditation might be a good step to add to your daily life. It will take as long as you need and you will feel how your body resets after you’ve taken this time. Moreover, to get even greater results, you can always try implementing devices like our PEMF Mat or even the Infrared Light lamp and sauna blanket to take your meditation practice to the next level.
