These products provide a convenient way to connect to the Earth’s electrical field while indoors. This connection is called ‘earthing’ or ‘grounding’ and provides many benefits. You can read more about the benefits and the supporting scientific evidence on our website: www.healingtech.com In general, the more time you can spend grounded the better. Grounding is particularly recommended while sleeping. We spend many hours of each day sleeping; it is the time when the body is repairing, rebuilding and regenerating, and being grounded optimises these processes, and also improves the general quality of sleep.
Using your Earthing product For optimal effect
it is necessary to have direct skin contact with the Earthing product. The half sheet is placed on top of a regular sheet and tucked in around the mattress. It is usually placed across the bottom half of the bed, but can also be fitted in other positions. The fitted sheet is placed directly on the mattress, instead of a regular sheet. The flat sheet can either be used as a top sheet in conjunction with a fitted sheet, or as a bottom sheet tucked around the mattress. The recovery bag can be used either zipped up, or unzipped and laid flat as a bottom sheet. The grounding mat can be used in any position where there will be skin contact, for example under your bare feet, or on a desk with your hand or arm resting on it. It can also be used to directly ground electronic devices. Only the upper side of the mat where the wire connects is conductive. For use of the grounding patches, please refer to the separate instruction sheet included.
Use with laptops, tablets and smart phones
Certain laptops, tablets and smart phones (Apple products for example) can have a high voltage present on the outside of their case, while connected to their mains charger. If physically touching one of these devices while you are grounded, it can cause a current to flow through the body. There is a current limiting device in the Earthing products, so this is not dangerous, however it can feel like a slightly unpleasant tingling sensation. If you experience this unpleasant tingling sensation, it is recommended either to unplug the device from its charger while you are grounded, or to directly ground the device itself by placing it on a grounding mat. In the latter case, ensure there is direct contact with the device case (i.e. it’s not enough that a plastic cover or rubber feet alone are touching the grounding mat). Another option for a laptop.
