  • What is grounding:

    The earth is like a massive battery that contains a natural, subtle electrical charge - a special kind of energy present in the ground. For safety and stability, almost everything in the electrical world is connected to it, whether it is an electric power plant or your refrigerator. That’s what the term “grounded” means.

    Being grounded also applies to people. When you make direct contact with the earth’s surface by walking barefoot on soil, grass, rocks or swimming in water - you are electrically grounded too.

  • Benefits of grounding:

    Scientific research indicates that your body can be protected, and that you feel better, when you regularly reconnect to the earth. That is, when you are grounded. Here are three examples of potential benefits that have been reported in scientific studies on grounding:

    1. Decreased levels of pain and inflammation
    2. Reduced stress levels
    3. Improved circulation
  • We’re all living disconnected…

    The Earth is one giant battery with its own negative charge. You too are electrical, with your very own cells transmitting to your heart, nervous, and immune systems.

    Throughout history humans walked, sat and slept on the ground, cultivated their land with bare hands and spent a lot of their time naturally grounded. However, today, we have become increasingly disconnected from mother nature by our modern lifestyle. Conductive leather-soled shoes of our ancestors have been replaced with insulated rubber and plastics. We sleep in beds and homes off the ground. Plastics, synthetic fabrics, asphalt, tar, carpets, vinyl have all been introduced and block this natural connection to mother earth. To add to this, we also use all types of conveniences and devices like computers, mobile phones, wi-fi, microwaves and cell towers, which provide an excess of free radical damage to our tissues and cells. The earth’s energy helps to reduce these excess free radicals so that your body can heal and repair naturally. Therefore, it is vital that we reconnect with this natural energy daily to counteract the damaging effects of our modern lifestyle.

  • How can you get grounded?

    Grounding techniques focus on reconnecting your energy with the earth through direct contact.
    These methods include:

    • Walking outside barefoot
    • Laying on the ground
    • Going swimming
    • Gardening
    • Using grounding products
  • If you can’t ground yourself outside, try Earth and Moon grounding products!

    For many of us, walking barefoot outside on a daily basis is not possible or practical. Luckily, Earth and Moon indoor grounding products are just as effective and designed to suit your everyday lifestyle!

    You can easily set up your grounding mat in your home, studio or office and use it every day, such as while you sleep, watch TV, cook, use your computer and even while you meditate.

  • How does an Earth and Moon grounding mat work?

    Grounding mats create an electrical connection between your body and the earth. The idea is to replicate the physical connectivity you would make by walking barefoot on the earth’s surface. This connection allows free electrons to flow from the earth and into your body to create a neutral electrical charge. Any metallic material will conduct the flow of electrons. Earth and Moon grounding products typically use carbon as the conductive agent. Carbon is highly conductive and very strong, allowing it to hold up well with frequent use and washings. Moreover, it is inherently anti-microbial.

    A grounding mat works by connecting, via a cord, to the ground port of your electrical outlet. You can place your grounding mat on the floor, desk or bed - wherever you like. We recommend having direct contact with your bare skin (hands or feet) however you can also place your grounding mat beneath your bed sheet - your body naturally produces a little bit of sweat while you sleep making you remain conductive to the earth’s energy.

    Getting the benefits of grounding has never been this easy!

  • Do grounding products run on electricity?

    No. They simply pick up the Earth’s energy through the ground port of a properly grounded outlet or from a ground rod placed directly in the Earth and deliver it via a cord to the conductive grounding product, specially designed for human grounding.

    It does not conduct the electrical power that operates your lights and appliances in the house. When your body comes in contact with the grounding product you absorb the earth’s energy.

  • How to get grounded using an Earth and Moon grounding mat:

    Step 1: Test if your wall outlet is properly grounded using the outlet tester provided.
    Step 2: Connect the snap end of your grounding cord to your grounding mat.
    Step 3: Plug the other end of your grounding cord into the US safety adaptor.
    Step 4: Plug the US safety adaptor into the wall outlet that you tested using your outlet tester.
    Step 5: Sit, stand or lie down on the mat and enjoy the benefits of grounding in the comfort of your home.

  • What if my house is not properly grounded?

    It is possible that if you live in an older building, your outlets are not properly grounded. You can consult with your local electrician and see if they can retrofit the building with a dedicated grounding system. If this isn’t possible, you could place a ground rod in the earth outdoors and connect your mat to that; however please always consult with your electrician.

    If neither of these options are possible, try to spend some barefoot time in nature if possible, and consider using an Earth and Moon grounding device at the office and when you travel.

  • What can I expect to feel when using Earth and Moon grounding products?

    Everybody who practices grounding should benefit in some way, but we are all different. For some people, the benefits can come quickly and dramatically. And for others, much more subtly. Some people might feel a slight tingling sensation if they are sensitive to energy, others may not feel anything. Regardless of what you feel when using your Earth and Moon grounding product, you are still receiving the benefits of grounding, as long as your home is properly grounded and your product is set up correctly.

    If you want to see the voltage in your body reduce when using an Earth and Moon grounding product, you can test it using a multimeter. If you had doubts about whether you’re getting grounded - you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

  • Grounded person vs non-grounded person:

    A study conducted by the California Institute for Human Science found that one-hour contact with the earth’s surface improves inflammation and blood flow.

  • How to practice grounding daily:

    If the weather permits, walk or stand barefoot for a half-hour or so outside and see what a difference that makes on your physical and mental state. Remember, soil, grass, sand, or concrete are all conductive surfaces from which your body can draw the earth’s energy. Wood, asphalt, and vinyl are not conductive so avoid these materials when grounding outside.

    Ideally you want to incorporate the practice of grounding into your daily routine, however, for many of us this isn’t always possible due to climate, injury, location or time. Earth and Moon grounding products can be used inside the comfort of your home or office while sleeping, relaxing, or working.

  • 3 reasons why you should practice grounding:

    • It’s a natural practice
    • Connecting with nature is proven to be beneficial to our mental health
    • It’s never been this easy!
  • Does grounding cure disease?

    Grounding does not cure disease.

    It restores your natural electrical balance, which can be a benefit to reducing stress and inflammation.

  • Are the benefits of grounding scientifically proven?

    According to the experts and available research, grounding products do have positive effects on human physiology.

    They work by creating an electrical connection between your body and the Earth, simulating the effect of walking barefoot directly on the ground.

    They’ve been shown to help with sleep, stress, mood, pain, and brain-related issues, but results are highly individual and the use of grounding mats should not replace medical care.

  • Who is grounding for?

    The practice of grounding is a safe and effective method for everyone. This practice can be as simple as walking barefoot on the ground outdoors, swimming in natural bodies of water, or using indoor Earth and Moon grounding products.

    Everyone has the opportunity to benefit from the practice of grounding!

  • Safety precautions when grounding and when to consult with a healthcare provider:

    Earth and Moon grounding products are safe to use when they are correctly set up. You must ensure the wall outlet in your home or office is properly grounded (using the outlet tester) before connecting your grounding product. If you are unsure, we recommend you consult your local electrician.

    Similarly, outdoors, natural body grounding is widely considered a safe method, provided you’re cautious about where you practice it.

    If you’re very sensitive to electromagnetic fields, or you notice a rapid change in your cortisol levels and general wellness, this could cause a slight shock to your system. We recommend gradually exposing yourself to the benefits of our grounding products at the beginning to avoid these side effects.

    You may start with 10 to 30 minutes of grounding per day.

    Taking it slow can help you keep your risk levels low. However, if you do notice any side effects, they will unlikely be extremely severe unless there is a problem with your grounding strategy.

    Always consult with a healthcare provider if you have underlying medical conditions, or you are not sure if these products are right for you. We are not doctors and cannot provide medical advice.
