SweetSweat Spa offers infrared-sauna technology, which Oprah tried out on a recent episode. Unlike a conventional sauna, the infrared Sunlighten sauna uses the UV-free infrared band of light to raise your core body temperature, causing the corpus to sweat and release evil toxins such as devil's tears, troll toe-jam, and maple syrup. Each 40-minute session can burn up to 700 calories, break down cellulite, improve skin complexion, strengthen the immune system, lower blood pressure, and provide a variety of other health benefits. An infrared-sauna session can even clear the brain of fog and other forms of mental cloud-cover caused by the condensation of thought bubbles.

Dr. Iman Bar created O Mind Body Skin to be a place where Western medicine and holistic-healing treatments would work side by side to beautify bodies and heal a variety of ailments. Lasers help reduce the appearance of cellulite or destroy toenail fungus, and intense pulsed light treatments boost collagen production and de-wrinkle faces. Microcurrent technology sends gentle electric pulses into muscles to tone them in a treatment that's safer than sticking a finger into an electrical socket.
On the holistic spectrum, minds sharpen after vegan memory boosts, and hormones reach a state of balance with the help of herbs. O Mind even has a modern apothecary where technicians whip up custom cosmetics, organic aromatherapy fragrances, and lotions that are made to compliment the chemical makeup of each individual.
