Taking care of your skin does not stop at your neck! Many people don’t realize that the skin on our bodies can suffer the same damaging environmental effects as our face. Frequent professional body treatments are as necessary as regular facials to maintain optimum skin health. Home Grown Spa's signature purifying, exfoliating, and detoxifying body treatments are some of the most effective ways to cleanse, balance, and hydrate the skin. In addition, these treatments will address imbalances such as sluggish metabolism, dull skin, digestive issues, lack of energy from high stress, and accumulated toxins in the body and lymphatic (filtering) systems. The combination of spa and home care can aid in the prevention of premature aging and restore your natural healthy glow.
All of the body treatments at Home Grown Spa include dry brushing and steam table. Dry brushing is a great way to start any body treatment because it achieves the following:
- Exfoliates the skin and eliminates clogged pores
- Cleanses the immune/lymph system
- Increases blood flow to the body tissue
- Tightens the skin and mobilizes fat cells
After dry brushing, I use the Jade Derma Ray for electrically-assisted lymph drainage and micromassage. Electrically-assisted lymphatic drainage uses high frequency to direct lymphatic flow (toxins that can not be absorbed back into the body) to the body's trash dump site. This process is the ultimate in detoxification! After the lymphatic drainage, I use the Jade color, sound, frequency generator to tone the muscle and unblock any adhesions to allow for more blood flow. A salt scrub or mud mask will further condition, soothe, and soften the skin.
Why is a full body steam a great way to end a body treatment? As you relax in the Steamy Wonder Spa™, your body is actually working hard to eliminate toxins and burn fat. Weight loss becomes possible because body fat becomes water soluble at 110 degrees and the body can sweat out fats, toxins, and heavy metals. During a heat treatment your heart works harder pumping blood at a greater rate to boost circulation, supplying the conditioning benefits of continuous exercise. Heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate increase. Because the metabolism rate increases during the Steamy Wonder™ treatment you are burning calories, not just water!
When Should I choose to use the Infrared Sauna?
An infrared sauna is a type of sauna that uses light to create heat. This light emulates the rays of the sun and heats your body directly without warming the air around you. in general, the appeal of saunas is that they cause reactions similar to those elicited by moderate exercise, such as vigorous sweating and increased heart rate. An infrared sauna produces these results at lower temperatures than does a regular sauna, allowing you to sweat for an extended time and gain more benefits.
