A unique passive workout that offers deep relaxation, a string of health benefits and your most beautiful complexion yet–who’s in?
We caught up with Sabrina Tang, founder of SweatSpa (the only place in KL you’ll find Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas treatments) on the importance of a good detox and the life-changing results you can expect.
So, what’s new?
Chances are, you’ve heard of, or experienced a Far Infrared Rays (FIR) treatment in the past, so you may know that what makes it unique compared to a traditional sauna experience, is that the rays gently heat your body from within instead of heating up the air. This safe and comfortable technology applies to the treatments you’ll find at SweatSpa as well, except that it’s ahead of the game with a unique offer of three Infrared levels in their treatments to give you extremely targeted resuts.
“Near Infrared Rays focuses on skin purification, pain relief and wound healing, while Mid Infrared targets weight loss and improved circulation and Far Infrared goes deeper to address body detox and blood pressure concerns.” Sabrina explains.
5 Top benefits from Full Spectrum Infrared Saunas
Tried-and-tested results from a 12-week study of Near Infrared treatments include a visible reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and crow’s feet, and an improvement in skin clarity and firmness of the skin. “Even healthy individuals can benefit from these sauna treatments in the long run. Personally, I have experienced visible improvements in skin pigmentation and my complexion has never looked healthier.” Sabrina adds.
“I do get asked ‘Why should I pay to sweat?’ Yes, these treatments certainly do not cancel out your normal work out, but here, you’re activating the sweat glands that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to through any normal exercises, and this is especially important when it comes to flushing out internal toxins from the body.” Here, an average person sweats out 20% toxins, as compared to 3% toxins in a conventional sauna!
“As a result of the extremely stressful lifestyles we lead, we’ve also come to live with the negative side effects when it comes to our health such as chronic fatigue, hormone imbalance, unexplained aches and pains, and the list goes on. Each session of this treatment gives you an hour-long, quality relaxation while you sweat it out and feel less stressed out and more invigorated after.”
Weight Loss and Blood Pressure Reduction
“The common misconception is that individuals with high blood pressure should stay away from this treatment. On the contrary, this is extremely suitable for high blood patients because it actually lowers your blood pressure, while aiding weight loss.” A 40-minute session can burn up to 600 calories.
Improved Cell Health
“As with anything else, consistency is key. After few treatments (without too long a break in between), the therapy works to stimulate your circulatory system.” With an improvement in circulation, it also allows more toxins to flow from the cellular level to the skin’s surface, allowing you to easily sweat it out of your body, extending other health and body benefits including muscle recovery and a stronger immune system.
