Noticeable effects on pain relief, skin stimulation and stress reduction
This familiar treatment in very hot, dry air is used for purification and rejuvenation. Some European cultures attribute their long, healthy lives, to frequent sauna treatments, cleansing dirt from deep within the pores and fortifying the immune system. Infrared heat penetrates deeper, heats the body faster and more safely than conventional, convection saunas.
- Made of the finest Canadian Red Cedar, our sauna provides safe and effective radiant heat.
- Infrared heat waves reach the body directly without having to heat the intervening air inside the saunas!
- Noticeable effects on pain relief, skin stimulation and stress reduction due to an increase in blood circulation.
Salt paste is applied as a vigorous skin scrub, stimulating the nervous system and circulation. By removing dead skin cells, the body’s largest organ is primed to function better, leaving your entire body with a smoother complexion and a healthy “glow”. Patients may choose to precede the salt glow with a steam or sauna, or enjoy a salt glow first before a hot tub and massage.
Paraffin Wax Treatment
A series of layers of heated therapeutic wax are applied to an area of chronic pain. This treatment performed during a massage will often allow the therapist to use more advanced techniques resulting in a greater flexibility of joints and muscles. It is recommended for non-inflammatory arthritis or stiff joints.
