Talented sculptors can make a man out of marble, a swan out of ice, and a functioning defibrillator out of cotton candy. Turn your body into a finely chiseled work of art with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get a 60-minute infrared body wrap and 30-minute Swedish massage (a $150 value) at The Intrinsic Wellness Center in Lewisville.
The pros of protoplasmic refurbishment at The Intrinsic Wellness Center expunge anxiety and facilitate burning calories within a tranquil haven for restoration. Soothe stressed out sinews with an aromatic Swedish massage, a relaxing rubdown that relies on long, gliding strokes to gelatinize muscles into the consistency of Scandinavian lutefisk. The fragrant therapeutic oils mitigate muscle stiffness while treating sniffers to calming fragrances, an experience akin to having skin soothingly stimulated by hundreds of floral-scented marbles without shoving them up nostrils. Clients will also jump start their journey to summer svelteness with a metabolism-boosting infrared body wrap. After suiting up in a space-age body wrap to prepare for a relaxing calorie phase-out, patients are cradled as if in a catcher's mitt made of biscuits in one of the wellness center's calming treatment rooms. During the one-hour session, the heated suit slowly warms the body from inside out. The infrared heat waves penetrate up to 3 inches below skin level, increasing blood flow and metabolism and zapping up to 1,400 calories per hour.
Body-wrap therapy pays homage to the bygone leisurely weight-loss routines of the 19th century, whereby maidens would lie in a field waiting for rabbits to jump on them in hopes of pounding out the calories. Slip into the modern incarnation of the laid-back approach to a better body with a trip to Intrinsic Wellness Center. With summer around the corner, spending an hour under penetrating infrared waves is a good way to shape up for spending hours lying under UV waves.
