The Lokosana™ Sleeping and Grounding Pad (“Lokosana”) was created by SAMINA to improve sleep quality by grounding the body. This is also known as “earthing” and it works by stabilizing the earth’s natural magnetic fields. See “What is Grounding?” for more information.
Lokosana is an important component of the SAMINA Sleep System but optional. It also can be used with other mattresses to improve sleep quality and improve your health.
The Lokosana™ sleeping and grounding pad by SAMINA is a certified medical device (CE)1 according to the EU standards established and administered by Swissmedic2 for the promotion of sleep and quality regeneration.
Lokosana has demonstrated efficacy for use as a medical device for the following indications with their corresponding ICD-10 classification codes3.
There no evidence to suggest that the use of this device could be detrimental. In medical terminology, there are no concrete contraindications to this medical device. As grounding the body can positively impact all of its systems, it is advisable for individuals to monitor their drug dosages. By doing so, one can optimize the effects of medication and promote overall well-being. In particular, study results have shown that the long-term effect of body grounding during sleep can have a mild blood-thinning effect. Likewise, body grounding can improve thyroid function and blood sugar regulation.
For patients with electromedical implants (e.g., pacemakers) there is a version available without bio-magnets (Lokosana™ Bio-Energy).
Dr. Günther Amann-Jennson, the founder of SAMINA, created Lokosana using an unconventional approach over 25 years ago. For better health benefits, he incorporated a thin layer of bio-active sheep’s wool, Swiss bio-magnets, a layer of fabric interwoven with pure silver threads, and encased these layers inside of pure organic cotton. It’s the high amount of silver in the composition of the pad that impacts the expense of this product.
Unlike other body grounding devices, Lokosana works through indirect contact with your body meaning you don’t touch the silver fabric inside of the pad. Our bodies are conductors of electricity, so to be in direct contact with metal could cause electrical shock, which has been reported with other grounding products. The indirect contact method is, therefore, much safer.
The sheep’s wool is unbelievably soft, keeping the pad from feeling stiff and providing a moisture pathway from your body.
The bio-magnets stabilize distorted electromagnetic fields especially common in urban living and help re-orient your body in alignment with the Earth’s magnetic providing an antioxidant effect. The pad effectively has you sleeping in a head north – feet south position regardless of the position of your bed for optimal healthy sleep.
Lokosana is grounded with a plug that goes directly into a common household outlet. Recent innovations have improved this connector to remove any concerns about so-called “dirty electricity”.
When an outlet has 3 holes, it is likely grounded meaning that it goes through the electrical panel connected to a grounding rod that goes at least 8 feet below the ground. When you order a Lokosana sleeping and grounding pad, you will receive an electrical outlet tester to ensure your outlet is grounded for safe use.
There is no electric current flowing between the grounding pad and the outlet. The pad works because of the connection with the grounding rod whose sole purpose is to dissipate static electricity like lightening. This is how your household appliances are protected and why they don’t shock you.
The plug has undergone a re-design to ensure even safer use with Lokosana. There is now a diode on the cord which ensures that current can only travel in one direction removing concerns about “dirty electricity” and there is now a universal adapter so that the pad may be used internationally by plugging in specific adapters by country.
Restoring our lost connection to Earth while sleeping at night is a passive way to improve health and wellbeing with proven studies to support that it improves sleep quality, helps people fall asleep faster, sleep deeper, and improve symptoms of some sleep disorders.
Never before have human beings been exposed to so much electrosmog or electro-pollution and that is why SAMINA developed the Lokosana™ grounding cushion as a daytime complement to the Lokosana sleeping and grounding pad. Like the night-time version, the daytime seat cushion is made of pure silver, organic cotton, Bio-Magnets, and encased in a blue cotton cover. It is designed to be placed on the seat of your office chair and should remain always plugged in.
The plug does not have any electric current; it is for grounding purposes only. Lokosana™ then becomes a better conductor of electricity than your body due to the high content of pure silver it contains. This helps protect you from the direct exposure of EMFs in your environment from common items such as:
