Choose Between Two Options
- $49 for three infrared-sauna sessions and a homeopathic-detox treatment (a $135 value)
- $69 for five infrared-sauna sessions and a homeopathic-detox treatment (a $200 value)
Sit comfortably for 45 minutes in a private, iPod-compatible infrared sauna while thermal energy penetrates tissues. Then, freshen up in an enclosed shower with filtered water. The customized detox treatment—also called homeotoxicology—uses homoeopathically manufactured products designed to work with the body’s defense mechanisms and facilitate the elimination of toxins. Based on a client's symptoms, the practitioner might recommend ingredients such as echinacea and gallium.
Stuart Gross’ passion for holistic healthcare stems from personal experience. After his young son spent many months enduring eczema that had not responded to conventional treatment, Gross took him to a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine who was able to clear the symptoms almost overnight. Gross had also been affected by the passing of his father, who died of preventable diabetes and heart disease at the age of 54, as well as the death of his father-in-law, which was a result of the side effects of the drugs he was taking for rheumatoid arthritis. Gross decided to give up his career as an auto mechanic and explore ways in which alternative therapies can heal people. He took a course in nutrition and started working in a health store. Using skills developed during his car-repair days, Gross then trained in various holistic assessment tools and equipment.
Today, Gross uses his knowledge and experience at Yaletown Holistics, where he offers services including oxygen therapy and a variety of homeopathic and nutritional supplements. Gross is also an advanced practitioner in electro-acupuncture according to Voll (EAV), a German-made diagnostic device designed to reveal bodily imbalances and conditions such as food sensitivities and heavy-metal toxicity. Guests also target impurities in a cozy, private infrared sauna, which can be used in conjunction with an iPod or personal yodeler to provide relaxing music.
