Clients are wrapped up in what’s essentially a heated and weighted mummy suit. Headphones are provided, with one arm kept free so that users can listen to music or watch shows on their phones, or watch TV.
The wraps produce infrared radiation — light that we can’t see but can feel as heat. Proponents say the technology releases toxins, such as heavy metals and pesticides, better than a traditional sauna experience, and that the treatment can even lead to better sleep and lower blood pressure.
“Employees can adjust the infrared temperature if needed. Clients are also encouraged to hydrate before and immediately after by drinking coconut water, chlorophyll water or juices.
There can be a drop in blood pressure and body temperature. so its important to check with your doctor before you try this.
