Extra Benefits of Using the Universal Earthing Mat while at the Office or Around Electronics:
The Universal Mat is an absolute must for anyone working at a computer station or surrounded by electronic equipment to help reduce the electrical voltage you are being exposed to. You may also experience:-
- Better Concentration
- Reduced Eye Strain
- Stress Reduction
- Reduction in Back and Neck Pain
- Reduction of EMF's from surrounding electrical appliances and lighting
- When working at a computer for long hours people report feeling less fatigued and having more energy.
Simply place the Universal Earthing Mat on top of your desk for hand contact or on the floor for foot contact. You can use two together – one on the desk and one on the floor to make sure you are always covered.
When working in an office environment we are often surrounded by very high electrical fields from sources such as computers, printers, photocopiers, etc., which some people are sensitive to and may become tired, experience sore eyes, fatigued and lose focus. By working "grounded” you will greatly reduce this electrical voltage your body is being exposed to and can stay in a better balanced electrical state which is beneficial to all the cells and tissues in your body.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
1. Can I wear socks or stocking when using the Universal Mat?
Yes, the mats can be used with thin cotton socks, stockings, light clothing or a cotton sheet as a thin layer of moisture will build up on the skin and allow the earth’s free electrons to pass from the mat to your body.
2. Can I wear shoes on the Universal Mat?
No, regular shoes will act as a barrier and block the electron flow. However, we do carry Earthing stylish corporate shoes that can be used with the Universal Mat so there is no need to take your shoes off. Click Here To see our range.
3. Can I wear the Earthing Socks on the Mat without having them connected to a power outlet with an attached cord?
Yes, as the Earthing socks are made from special conductive material and when they make contact with the Earthing Mat they will immediately be earthed. The Earthing socks can be used to keep your feet warm in winter as well as bring extra circulation and support to this area. Click here for Earthing Socks.
4. Can I use the Universal Mat in bed to sleep on?
Yes, while we do have specially designed Earthing bed mats and sheets you can use the Universal Mat to sleep on by either placing under your cotton sheet or making contact with it on top of the sheet, either way, will work. Many people take their mat when travelling to sleep and rest grounded and help recover from jet lag.
5. What is the size of the mat and can I trim it if necessary?
The Mat measures 32cm x 99cm and can be cut down to a smaller size if required to fit an area such as a pet bed or smaller area.
6. Can I use a powerboard to plug in my Earthing Mat?
Yes, you can. Our Earthing Plugs are non-electrical and only connect to the Earth wire of your home or building. It does not matter if the power is on or off. It is advisable to check electrical powerboards with our Socket Tester to ensure the board is in good working order with a stong connected Earth wire. Click here to find out more about the Socket Tester.
7. How do I clean the mat?
To clean the mat, simply wipe down using a warm damp cloth or sponge and or a mild soap. Do not use any household products like furniture polish or Armor All® as it will cause the mat to lose conductivity.
8. What do I get in my Universal Earthing kit?
Your kit contains all the components you need so that you can start Earthing as soon as your get your package.
1 x Earthing Mat, 1 x Connection Cord, 1 x Adapter Plug and instructions.
9. Is there any other products you recommend for the Universal Mat?
Our Product Continuity Tester is a handy tool to test that your products are conductive and working by showing a green light when placed on the mat. It will also test that your cords are in good working order. You can also use a Multimeter to test products are conductive.
*As with all our Earthing products the Earthing Mat connects to the earth with a grounding cord and plug into your power outlet. Alternatively, you can connect with a ground rod and cord.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS THE USA VIDEO AND YOU WILL NEED OUR INCLUDED AUSTRALIAN ADAPTER PLUG TO GO INTO THE POWER POINT FIRST.
Step 1: Check Your Outlets Are Earthed with our Socket Tester:
In order to use your Earthing products through an electrical outlet, you must connect it to the “earth port” of an earthed 3 prong outlet. Before plugging in your Earthing product, check that the outlet is earthed by plugging in the Socket Tester. Three orange lights illuminated is GOOD and means that you have a proper earth and you are ready to connect your Earthing product. Any other light combination means your outlet is NOT properly earthed. Try testing another outlet. If it still doesn’t work, then you will need to use a grounding rod in the optional step 2 below.
If using existing or old powerboards it is important to check that they are earthed correctly.
Please Note: In Australia it is compulsory by law to have all electrical power outlets Earthed, however, if in doubt for any reason it is easy to check with our socket tester which are inclusive in all our Starter Packs, otherwise you can purchase individually – please click here to order.
Step 2: (Optional) Using The Ground Rod When Outlets Aren't Earthed:
a. First Push the Ground Rod directly into the earth around 20cm to 25cm, close to the foundation of the building and where vegetation is growing or the area is damp.
b. Run the cord from the Ground Rod, under or around a window or door, near where you will be using your product.
c. Make sure to cover the cord to prevent tripping.
d. Plug the prong end of your cord into the receptacle end of the Ground Rod cord. If you live in a dry area, such as a desert, soak the earth around the Ground Rod from time to time for maximum conductivity.
Step 3: Setting Up Your Universal Mat:
a. Decide where you want to use the mat. Your options include almost any place where you work, sit, relax, rest, or sleep. Hence, the name “universal mat.” Just remember that wherever you set it up you need to have some bare skin contact. Set the mat up with the cord connection on the top - this is the conductive side "shiny side" to place your hands or feet on.
b. You can use the mat with thin natural fiber socks. When slight perspiration builds up on the feet it will allow the electron transfer to flow through from the mat, through the socks and to the feet, however, bare skin is always the best option.
c. Insert the metal pin end of the Earthing cord into the adapter plug supplied, then into a properly earthed wall outlet or if using a Ground Rod, connect to cord of an Earthing ground rod placed in the Earth outside.
d. Snap other end of Earthing cord onto the metal press stud.
e. You must make bare skin contact with the connected mat, in order to receive the Earth’s energy.The mat is conductive on the snap side only.
Step 4: How To Test For Conductivity With The Product Continuity Tester:
The purpose of the tester is to verify that your Earthing Mat is conductive
a. Firstly verify that the Product Tester itself is operational by pressing button that says “press” and release—the small light on front will flash green one time then goes off. Indicates tester is good. If no green light battery (Lithium CR2032) may be flat or unit faulty.
b. Snap Coil Cord included onto Product Tester’s metal press stud, if not already assembled.
c. Insert your grey Earthing Adapter Plug into the power outlet you intend to use with your product.
d. Insert prong end of Product Tester Cord into one receptacle of the adapter plug or if using a Ground Rod, attach a splitter to end of ground rod cord and insert into one of the receptacles.
e. Plug Earthing cord from Mat into the other receptacle. You should now have both the Earthing Mat and Tester connected to the plug that is in a power outlet.
f. Place product tester flat on the mat. The round metal plate must be in contact with surface of the mat. Press firmly on the mat to obtain a good contact and press down on the "Press" button. A green light means that mat is in working order. In unlikely case that no green light comes on, the mat may be defective or has lost conductivity and should be replaced – you should also check your connecting cords to make sure they are conductive as well (see below).
Sometimes, people have difficulty testing their products. If the light doesn’t come on, place one hand on the product while holding the tester in the other hand and with one finger on the silver button on back of tester. A green light would show that the body is grounded when touching the product. Make sure that both the tester and the product are plugged in to the earth, as described above. You can also put some moisture on your finger tips to create a better contact.
g. Disconnect product tester from the adapter plug or ground rod. However, it is fine to leave plugged in to test when needed later on
h. You don’t have to test your products often. Perhaps after cleaning. The more you use the tester, the sooner the batteries in the tester will expire, replace battery (Lithium CR2032) by unscrewing the back panel.
Test Your Product Cords For Conductivity:
- Replace the coil cord already on the product tester with the cord to be tested.
- Touch the metal pin of the testing cord to the back of the metal disk on the tester
- Hold down and press the “Press” button for at least 3 seconds.
- A green light indicates that the cord is in good working order.
Step 5: How To Wash and Care For Your Earthing Mat
To clean the mat, simply wipe down the mat using a non corrosive cleaner or warm water on a regular basis. Do not use chlorine bleach or liquid fabric softener, or any detergent containing bleach or fabric softener, chemicals that can ruin the conductivity of the mat. Do not apply lotions, creams, or oils to the skin before bedtime on parts of your body that will be in contact with the Earthing mat. Such substances oxidize and can damage conductivity. Air dry the mat only,

Universal Mats for work and sleepBy: Darren on 10 March 2020Dear Reader, I discovered Grounding products in January 2016. Been using them every day since. The Universal Mat is my go-to Grounding product. It is under my desk, as I work at home; and at night I move it to my bed, making sure some part of my flesh is touching it as I sleep - back, legs, feet, etc.. I feel great, able to recover from heavy work shifts, where I must walk and lift and move objects for many hours at a time. My recovery rate from muscle soreness and tiredness is greatly assisted by the Grounding Mat. They last a long time, are easily replaced and can be taken on travels to hotels, anywhere you might visit. ~ Darren.
Looooove ItBy: Marie on 14 June 2019I've been using my Universal Mat over the past week and I looooove it!!!!! I started with an hour the first day and then ramped it up and am using it probably 5 hours most days and I feel so much improvement in my health. I have made a couple of other changes during this week which I know have also contributed (eg. ditching the last "naughty" thing I was consuming - Coke Zero (aspartame), but I know the mat is helping also because the days I use it less I don't have as much energy the next day.
Grounding Mat - sleep quality improvementBy: Patricia on 20 April 2018I purchased my grounding mat 1 month ago and my sleep and my partner's has improved so much. I have only used the mat for 1 to 2 hours a day and I now sleep through the night most nights. Because we are both sleeping well, we are not waking each other up. Before I would wake and not be able to get back to sleep again. I am not aware of any other improvements but feel that my sleep quality alone will make a huge difference to my overall health. I look forward to receiving the mattress mat which I feel confident will make an even bigger difference. I recommend watching the Grounding Movie on You tube. The benefits shown in this movie started my search for grounding products. Barefoot Healing came up in my google search for an Australian supplier. I can recommend their services. I love the videos provided on each product and they are always happy to answer questions both by phone or email. Delivery has been prompt. A very happy customer.
Can Feel The BenefitsBy: thomas on 9 April 2018The Mat I recently purchased is working wonderfully. As soon as my feet touch it I can feel the benefits of barefoothealing or earthing – also the RUG I use it at night as a cover. Sleep really does come easy. Great believer in Earthing products.
More energy at work.By: Emma on 8 March 2018Getting this mat gives me 2 extra hours of energy when working sedentary in a fluorescent office space which normally tires me out typing all day in that kinda lights. I only start to lose focus at 5pm instead of 3pm so its awesome. It's also a good non-preachy way of starting a conversation with others about earthing and its benefits. Fully Recommend.
