Tourmaline crystals have been known for their healing properties for centuries, but in recent years great strides have been made in the discovery of new uses for the precious stones. Tourmaline textiles are one such up and coming technology, in which tourmaline nano-particles are bound to a fabric for therapeutic use. When worn on the body, these fabrics absorb the body heat and convert it back into far infrared energy, which is redirected back to the body. This far infrared energy then works to heal the body, and mind! The most popular use for tourmaline textiles is tourmaline blankets, as the benefits of tourmaline are best seen when the body is exposed to them during a state of rest.
Each tourmaline particle generates negative ions, providing a multitude of benefits.
The effects of tourmaline blankets are staggering! Tourmaline encourages an alkaline environment in the body, lowering the acidity of body tissues. When sleeping beneath a tourmaline blanket, oxidative stress and free radicals can be reduced, blood flow and blood oxygen levels can be increased. In this way, tourmaline blankets can reduce inflammation and pain in the body.
Tourmaline encourages serotonin production, increasing alpha brain waves and leading to deeper, more restorative sleep. Not only do they promote better sleep, but tourmaline blankets have been found to reduce anxiety, and promote a sense of relaxation. Tourmaline blankets are plush, warm, and comforting. You will never want to sleep without your tourmaline blanket again, once you’ve had one!
But tourmaline isn’t just for humans! Pets are also able to receive the healing benefits of tourmaline, and respond effectively to tourmaline textiles. Tourmaline pet beds are available for your furry friends, providing all the therapeutic benefits seen in humans. Pain relief, deep healing and anxiety relief are among the effects seen in pets given tourmaline pet beds.
Tourmaline blankets and pet beds are machine washable and tumble without fear of losing the effect of tourmaline crystals, as they are bonded to the fabric. The tourmaline lasts as long as the fabric does!
