Iris Wellbeing stimulates physical refurbishments with noninvasive, holistic therapies. The wellness spa invigorates physiques with six series of whole-body vibration sessions that promote weight loss by inducing muscular reflexology. Enlisting vibration equipment to gyrate their frames, clients simulate exerting workouts and washing-machine rides by standing on percussion platforms that transmit energy into the body, forcing muscles to contract and release continuously during the 10-minute pulsation treatments. In addition to flexing fibrous sinews, Iris vibration sessions also can increase flexibility, improve blood flow, and decrease the production of stress hormones that cause spontaneous locker-room-floor siestas.
During 45-minute salt-therapy sessions, chambers crusted with 3 to 5 tons of Himalayan rock salt nourish clients with healing aerosols and negative ions that alleviate respiratory problems such as allergies, asthma, and sinusitis. Wooed by a soundtrack of lullabies and the soft illumination of colour-therapy lights, patients 12 and older can unfurl limbs and prosthetic wings on thatched lounge chairs in the Ocean Retreat room, where synthesized salt-mine microclimates refresh their energy supplies and induce meditative peace. Visitors 11 and younger can also relish Iris's renewal treatment in the Healing Forest Salt Box quarters outfitted with a bounty of toys.
The salt-therapy rooms inside Iris Wellbeing help clear respiratory passages and rejuvenate skin with an aerosol of natural salt particles. This kind of therapy helps treat such respiratory ailments as asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, colds, and allergies. The wellness centre also assuages clients through massage, ionic foot detoxification, and reflexology, as well as waterbed massage and an acupressure massage bed.
