Because of their abject refusal to swallow SUVs whole, mud baths have enjoyed much more success than their close cousin, the mudslide. Stave off natural disaster with today's Groupon for sauna treatments at Healthy Vibes Fitness and Wellness Studio. Choose between two options:
- For $7, you get a 45-minute infrared sauna treatment (an $18 value).
- For $12, you get a 45-minute infrared sauna treatment, plus a 100 millilitre chocolate mud bath (a $26 value).
Healthy Vibes favours a holistic approach to wellness, and FarNorth Wellness saunas use the steam-free, coal-free Faberge gentleness of infrared light waves to vibrate skin, fat, and muscle cells. The technique is not as hot as a traditional sauna, and releases toxins such as mercury, aluminum, and cholesterol from the body. Purifying cells of molecular frenemies may promote improved circulation and weight loss, and can help with skin conditions such as psoriasis and permanent marker staining. Infrared saunas don't heat the surrounding air, so the experience is generally considered more comfortable than a traditional sauna. Benefits accrue with a take-home Golden Moor chocolate-mud bath ($8), which is harvested by venerable chocolate-mud farmers from the peat-rich bogs of Casselman, Ontario. The salubrious silt's high fluvic and humic acid content is said to reduce muscular stiffness and soothe finicky skin.
Healthy Vibes’ multidisciplinary team – which includes massage therapists, yogis, a naturotherapist, and a psychologist – works together to promote well-being and the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
