In a time where we are used to receiving what we want WHEN we want it, it is no wonder that people also want to lose weight fast (any by losing weight, I mean losing excess body fat).  But being clear on how you want to lose weight is just as important as hitting your ideal mark on your bathroom scale.  Sure, you could lose up to 10 kilos, but if the weight was lost as a result of decreasing muscle mass then you may not be helping out your body as much as you had originally intended.  Excluding all actors out there who have to reach a specific body weight for an upcoming role, how can we lose weight fast in KL, but stay healthy at the same time?

Before we get into answering that question, what is your aim in losing weight?  Are you looking to build muscle, lose excess body fat, detox your body or lead a healthier lifestyle in general?  Regardless of what diet you decide to go on, or what exercise regime suits your schedule and body type, there is one thing that can support and even speed up results:  a few sessions in an Infrared Sauna.

I know what you are probably thinking:  “What in the world is an infrared sauna and how does it help me to lose weight fast?”  As someone who has tested it out and absolutely loved the experience, here is the best way I can convey my comprehension of the world-famous infrared sauna:  you sit, you sweat, toxins come out, you feel better and look better!

What is a Far-Infrared Sauna?

According to Sunlighten.com (home to a specific awesome brand of Far-infrared Saunas), they say,

Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue which in turn produces a host of anti-aging health benefits making infrared saunas one of the “hottest” home therapies for overall healthier living. If you want to get yourself back into balance, an infrared sauna may be the ticket to achieving your wellness goals.

What makes this technology so cool is that the light penetrates your skin, warms you up from the inside out (as opposed to heating someone up from the outside as in a traditional sauna), and supports you in sweating out excess toxins.  When toxins leave your body, not only do your organs become more efficient, but excess body fat seemingly melts away on its own.

One of the functions of excess body fat is to trap toxins that could not be eliminated quickly enough from the body.  To avoid having the toxins trapped inside vital organs, the body is smart enough to isolate them into fat cells away from the organs.  After a sweaty session with Sweatspa, where the toxins are drawn out of the fat cells, the body then has no need for the excess fat and drops it.

Additionally, infrared saunas also promote muscle growth, especially after a workout.  I met up with a gym operator in downtown Kuala Lumpur who said that his favorite time to go into the Far-infrared sauna was after a workout.  You know how your muscles often hurt after a good weight-lifting regime at the gym?  According to him, if he goes for a Sweatspa session after a good workout, his muscles aren’t as sore the next day because he sweats out the lactic acid that causes the pain which also speeds up muscle recovery!  Toning and building muscle mass works very well when it is coupled with the likes of a Far-infrared sauna.

The gym operator isn’t the only Sweatspa advocate.  Recently Ning Baizura became the official spokeswoman for Sweatspa!  She loves coming here as often as possible for detox, weight loss, pain relief, skin rejuvenation, heart health and more.  She will be leading the press conference scheduled for April 6th at Sweatspa’s Atria location in Kuala Lumpur.

For your information, there are three outlets in Malaysia, including Bangsar Shopping Centre, Atria Shopping Gallery at Damansara Jaya , and Great Eastern Mall, Ampang.

Whether you are looking to buy your own unit and use at your own leisure, or purchase a package and visit one of their centres, health & vitality is just a sweat away!
