Earthing, or grounding, refers to connecting your body directly with the Earth.
Earth is an electrical planet, charged with a subtle surface energy commonly known in the electrical world as "ground.” When in contact with the Earth, this tranquil energy naturally transfers to any conductive object—whether it is a metal rod, a wire, a tree or plant, an animal, or a barefoot human—and they become “grounded.”
The known effect of grounding is that it discharges and prevents the buildup of electrical stress. Walking barefoot on the Earth, as humans have done throughout history, naturally grounds and discharges the body. The most reported benefit from people who place their bare feet directly on the Earth and ground themselves is that they “feel better.”
The products offered on this website allow you to conveniently ground yourself when indoors. They are "barefoot substitutes."
The Earthing Connection Universal Mat offers broad flexibility. Use it anywhere in the house or office. The 25X68cm mat with a 4.5m (15 ft.) wire serves as a floor mat to place your bare feet on as you work at the computer, or as a desk mat to ground your hands while typing or using the mouse. You can use while sitting in your favorite chair or lying on the couch or, alternatively, as a sleep system for your bed. The US to AUS adaptor supplied with the product can be connected to the cord to allow for connection to ground via a standard power point. You may want to check that your power point is wired correctly and provides a connection to ground by using the Earth Leakage Tester.
