In one of the most miraculous transformations in the natural world, an ugly caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon and emerges six to eight weeks later as either a beautiful butterfly or a much-uglier caterpillar. Revel in a more predictable and effective treatment with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a 30-minute infrared sauna pod session (a $50 value) at Firm Body Evolution, an alternative wellness treatment center with a focus on holistic medicine.
Each 30-minute session inside the jade infrared sauna is a hot pocket of health that gets visitors hot under the collar without getting hot in the head. These sleek, white cocoons are lined with jade-embedded mats that are slowly heated. Your body will lie sealed in this environment while the head is kept cool, relaxing as your core temperature is warmed without the cloying moisture of a traditional sauna. The subsequent sweating can assist the body in the detoxification of chemicals, chronic infections, heavy metals, and plant-based body snatchers. Some claim each session gives up to 600 calories the boot, while simultaneously strengthening the immune system and improving lymphatic circulation. Call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Visitors to Firm Body should bring their own towel.
Firm Body Evolution has been featured in a variety of media, including Los Angeles Confidential magazine, DailyCandy, and the Beverly Hills Courier. FBE has also appeared on Jessica Simpson's The Price of Beauty, KCAL 9, Fox 11 News, and more.
