The state-of-the-art, hospital-grade infrared saunas at Detox Haven help the clients who recline in their private confines to liquify fat and cellulite while eliminating toxins and heavy metals. The saunas send far-infrared energy washing over bodies to increase their core temperatures in an effort to purge the body of impurities without resorting to the stifling humidity of steam or lava rooms. Each session may burn 600-900 calories. Clients can work or read as soothing heat eases muscle aches and chromotherapy lights flash across bodies for extra pain relief. Each sauna also contains an iPod dock or CD player to keep ears occupied. After multiple sessions, clients may notice slimmer waistlines, greater senses of well-being, and the ability to melt snow before it reaches the ground.
Thailand invented the massage in 391 BC to alleviate the soreness that came from hours of Thai boxing, which had been invented the year before. While it's no longer performed on elephants, the massage's form has changed little in the ensuing centuries—until today's Groupon. For $38, new clients can get a customized one-hour massage from The Spa & Clinic at the Texas Healing Arts Institute.
Licensed massage therapist Alaina McCauley combines a scientific approach to muscular pain relief with a holistic view of relaxation and stress relief to bring solace to sore sinews and load-bearing body beams. During your 60-minute or 90-minute Swedish relaxation massage, the practitioner fine-tunes your flesh fiddle by employing long, rhythmic strokes and applying light to moderate pressure on achy tendons until they melt into mesmeric muscular sonatas. As tense tissue loosens, stress is rooted out from corporeal crannies and then gently shooed away before it has a chance to reenter the body or sell it insurance. Check out all of massage's many health benefits before scheduling an appointment at Ozarks Neuromuscular's tenderizing confines.
