Many practitioners of alternative medicine believe that toxins can impede our ability to lose weight, especially when a build up of metals turns the skeleton to solid gold. Get help purging weighty particles with today's Groupon: for $99, you get four weight-loss and detoxification sauna treatments at Skinny Spas (a $399 value).
Skinny Spas strives to trigger natural weight loss without dieting or exercise through half-hour sauna treatments, claiming each session burns 650–800 calories and clients lose 10–15 pounds on average after four sessions. As the cardiovascular system increases the heart rate in the body's attempt to cool itself, the escalating heat encourages fat to turn water-soluble, allowing the body to naturally flush excess lipids along with toxins such as cholesterol and environmental chemicals. The heat also expands blood vessels—which, combined with increased cardiovascular output, may push more blood throughout the body and result in improved cell regeneration as well as decreased pain and stiffness as fresh blood reaches nerve endings. The treatment can also reduce the appearance of cellulite, help heal injuries, and lessen muscle strain and arthritis. Skin may also improve in appearance, as Skinny Spas believes the body releases toxins through sweat as pores open, possibly reducing the appearance of varicose veins, acne, eczema, and birthmarks shaped like frowny faces. Services at Skinny Spas are covered by insurance when prescribed for injuries or weight-loss programs.
