Flush Out Toxins with These Detoxifying Services

Higher Dose infrared saunas help detox the body of heavy metals, radiation, and environmental toxins.

A host of detoxifying methods exist today that can rev up the lymphatic and circulatory system. According to Anna De La Cruz, director of brand development at Glo Skin Beauty, detox treatments include options for both the face and body and focus not just on products and ingredients but also on tools and techniques. She cites steam, which helps open the follicles and softens debris, and dry brushing, which sloughs away dull surface cells and promotes circulation and drainage, as examples.

“Spas should remember to incorporate heat therapies and Vichy and hydrotub treatments to enhance the detoxing effects of wraps and facials,” says Comfort Zone’s Elisabeth Nehme “And it’s especially important to educate guests about the remarkable benefits of massage.” 

Another detoxifying method that is trending these days is the infrared sauna, which can be found at places like Higher Dose (multiple locations), Sunrise Springs Spa Resort (Santa Fe, NM), and the homes of numerous celebs, such as Jennifer Aniston and Chelsea Handler. Offering a host of benefits, such as clearer skin and weight loss, it’s ideal for those interested in sweating out their toxins.

“For those looking to cleanse their bodies of toxins, infrared heat is going to be the most effective, because it penetrates deeper into the epidermis than other types of heat,” says Jennifer Gundert, operations manager of Fit Bodywrap. “Infrared heat penetrates about 1.5 inches to induce toxin-rich sweat. The sweat produced is reported to contain approximately 15 to 20 percent of toxins compared to only 3 to 5 percent in traditional saunas or from regular exercise.”
