When I first opened the box, I was impressed with how well made this TAO chair seat is. It’s covered in almost a suede like material, nontoxic material, with a clear window strip so that you can see the stones included in this seat. I thought that was really neat to be able to see the amethyst, tourmaline and obsidian, that this seat contains.


Why Use Natural Stones in a Heating Pad?

There are many health benefits using natural stone to transfer the heat from the heat source to your body. Let’s take a closer look at the three that are used for the TAO chair.

Amethyst – the seat contains over 5 pounds of amethyst. By using this stone you’ll get negative ion emission and far infrared heat. Amethyst has many health benefits and can help with body detoxification, cell regeneration, blood circulation, fight bacteria and put you in a good mood.

Tourmaline – the TAO chair contains 1 pound of tourmaline. This stone has similar benefits to the amethyst stone and gives out far infrared heat and negative ions. The tourmaline stone is probably most known for helping with detoxification, improved circulation and some even experience support of weight loss.

Obsidian the TAO seat includes 1 pound of obsidian. These rocks are formed from molten lava. It’s said to be a type of volcanic glass, a lava that cools down very quickly. Some say the stone will shield from negativity and has a cleansing effect.

I mentioned negative ion and far infrared heat. Let’s take a closer look at the benefits of that as well.

Negative Ions – the heated seat gives out a negative ion level of 1500/cc. Negative ions are created naturally in nature, from sunlight, air, and water. Have you ever experienced the calm after a thunderstorm? That’s much due to the negative ions. It helps clear the air of negative and hazardous airborne particles.

Here are some of the benefits of negative ions:

  • Clear the air
  • Increase overall well-being
  • Get rid of viruses and bacteria in the environment
  • Helps you relax and sleep better
  • Improve focus


Far Infrared Heat – the seat FIR 5-14 um for better healing of the body. The far infrared heat helps penetrate deep into your body which helps with muscle healing. FIR heat is also used for detoxifying the body.


Benefits of Using the TAO Chair

  • Pain relief
  • Put you in a better mood, fight negativity
  • Better blood circulation
  • Fight bacteria, viruses,
  • Help detox your body
  • Help you relax and sleep better


What’s Included in the Package?

The TAO seat Infra Mat Pro comes in a box and nice carrying case.

Included in the package is:

  • The TAO Chair Seat
  • The Controller
  • Warranty Card
  • Information
  • Carrying Case



This heat pad is made out of 14 layers, where each layer has a different function.

Cord – 52” from the outlet to controller 37” from the controller to Tao chair.

The Controller is easy to operate. You can set the heat, shut off time, PEMF and night setting. Let’s take a closer look at each one.

Heat settings – You can set the heat from 27 up to 70 degrees Celsius, which is 158 F, this is hot. Make sure you start out at a low temperature and work yourself up to a comfortable level. It takes about 10 minutes to heat it up to around 50 C.

Auto Shut-off – You can set the auto shutoff from one hour up to 9 hours.

Night Setting – You also have the option of night setting, the night setting will keep the temperature at a low setting 30 degrees Celsius with an auto shut off for 9 hours.

PEMF – You have the option of having the PEMF setting on or off. PEMF, pulsed magnetic therapy, was something that I was new to.



PEMF Treatment

I must say that I was a little skeptic when it comes to PEMF. Being born and raised in Scandinavia, everything had to be natural. Taking a headache pill was done only when you really really needed it. So anything new I’m naturally a little skeptic too.

After doing some research on PEMF and having my writer with a medical background even dig deeper into the topic, I learned that magnetism is something that has been used for over 2000 years medically in China.

Our living cells all generate a natural electrical charge. This is done by the ions moving, in and out of the cell membrane. This makes your body function. When you get sick, age, have an injury or are exposed to toxins the cells lose their charge. What this does is make your cells unable to take up nutrients and transport oxygen in a way that they are supposed to.

By using PEMF, pulse magnetic treatment you can repolarize the cell membrane again. It stimulates the body to heal in a natural way and it regenerate the damaged cells.

PEMF also naturally stimulates endorphins, which helps with pain relief. It reduces inflammation, improves blood circulation, improves blood oxygenation and stimulates the immune system. It also improves muscle function, helps with joint problems, reduces stress and improves sleep.

This video explains PEMF more in detail…

After reading up on PEMF, I realized that there were many natural benefits to using the PEMF function, at this point I felt very comfortable trying it out. The TAO seat gives out 7.8Hz of PEMF which is within the recommended usage.

After using the PEMF setting for 20 minutes the first time I felt rejuvenated, in a good mood and ready to get to work.

For more information on PEMF, take a look at the following video from Dr. Oz.



My Personal Experience Using the TAO Chair

When first trying it out I used this TAO seat in my office chair, I sit in front of the computer all day, so it’s a great place for me to get a good feel for the product.

It is very easy to use, you plug in the controller to the seat, then it plugs into the outlet cord from the seat into your outlet. That’s it, your heat seat is ready to be used.

Push the on/off button in the middle of the controller. Then you can start to customize your settings.

The first day I started using it I put it on 50 C to start with. It took about 10 – 15 minutes to go from 27 C to 50 C, it got pretty hot so I turned it down to 45 so it was comfortably warm. I recommend you start out with a low heat setting and working yourself up, find what’s comfortable for you.

The seat covers my back, shoulders, and thighs. I’m not very tall, 5.3 so it goes up almost to my neck and all the way down to the back of my knees. It covers a lot of my body when sitting down even though it’s considered just a “seat” and not a full mat.

When I first started using the seat it was kind of stiff and a little hard to sit on, it turns out thought that the more you use it the more comfortable it gets. It loosens up a little and becomes a little bit more flexible.

If doesn’t fully form after your chair the back is still a little stiff, so if you use a lumbar support like I do, it will not form after that.

After using the seat for hours it does get kind of hard to sit on. After all, you are sitting on natural stone, that is easily fixed though by shortening the time sitting on the seat. Now I usually sit on it for a couple of hours at the time or I lie on it.

The controller I stick between the seat and the chair, it would have been nice with a place to maybe hang or attach the controller but with most chairs, it will be fine to just stick it between the seat and armrest.

I like the fact that the controller will memorize your settings so when you come back to the seat after turning it off, you turn it on and the last setting is saved. This is a great feature so you don’t have to remember or set it all over again every time you go to use your TAO seat.


Shoulder Pain

One of my issues is my right shoulder, I sit in front of the computer all day and that puts a lot of strain on it. My sleeping position also makes my shoulder sore. This morning I woke up with terrible pain in my shoulder, had problems even washing my hair getting my arms above my head.

I got my TAO seat and placed it on the bed, I wanted to lie on it to make sure the heat could penetrate down into my right shoulder.


The Result after 20 min at 52C?

After just 20 minutes of use my shoulder feels much better, it’s more flexible and the pain is reduced tremendously. I still feel a little pull when I tilt my head forward but other than that it feels great. (Depending on your issue it might take longer for you to see the same result.)

If I compare this to using a regular electric heating pad that I’ve been using in the past, I can feel the difference in the depth of the heat. With the TAO seat, the heat penetrates deep into the muscle and tissue, where the electric pad would feel nice and comfortable but I didn’t get deep into the muscle like the TAO seat does, with the heat of the natural stones.

For me this TAO seat has helped with pain relief, feeling more positive and in a better mood. It has helped me relax and sleep better.
