Lay Down Infrared Sauna

The Pod experience begins  sipping cold water to hydrate the body pre-treatment. You lay face up in the pod where the technician will customize the settings to optimize the individual desired result of INFRARED SAUNA (temperature is set at 178 degrees /81 degrees).You close your eyes as the lid is closed, the machine is switched on and the treatment begins. Your face is outside of the machine and cold air blows at your neck as the rest of your body is gradually warmed inside the pod. Using infrared therapy, heat and LED light therapy your body is brought to a state of detox and metabolic increase. According to scientific analysis, the sweat produced from infrared heat contains 5-6 times more toxins, fat and impurities e.g. metabolic wastes, heavy metals, city pollution, etc. than normal sweat. Studies also show that sweat from infrared is 80-85% water, with the remaining 15-20% composed mostly of undesirable elements. In a conventional sauna, on the other hand, 95-97% of the sweat is water and a mere 3-5% is toxins.

Additional Benefits include:

  • Reduction of pain and discomfort
  • Reduction in muscle and join pain and inflammation
  • Reduction in Blood Pressure
  • Reduction in Stress
  • Strengthening of the Immune System
  • Skin Improvement (wrinkles, cellulite, texture & tone)
