NATURAL BATH & BODY PRODUCTS
Top 5 Benefits

Although Reiki has been used to treat body, mind, spirit, it is not meant to replace conventional medicine. Instead, it should be used along with allopathic treatments to complement and enhance them. Reiki should only be used with the understanding that it is not an independent therapy, but one that is just a part of a greater holistic healing approach!

Although Far Infrared Saunas have been used to treat body, mind, spirit, they are not meant to replace conventional medicine. Instead, they should be used along with allopathic treatments to complement and enhance them. Far Infrared Saunas should only be used with the understanding that they are not an independent therapy, but one that is just a part of a greater holistic healing approach!
Our tissues use infrared energy naturally to keep us warm and facilitate tissue repair. The Infrared energy supplied in sauna therapy amplifies these natural mechanisms in our bodies.
Infrared saunas provide deep, penetrating heat, warming the body’s core and providing additional health benefits unmatched by traditional saunas (Sweat out up to 20% of chemicals and toxins in the body).
We are bombarded on a daily basis with toxins, many of which the body has no known mechanism for metabolizing. These toxins build up in our bodies, wreaking havoc on our systems and resulting in disease or medically “untreatable” symptoms. In order to alleviate these symptoms, the body must first flush out its toxic overload to heal itself. This is also the case when we lose weight. Our fat cells contain fat soluble toxins that are released in our body when we lose weight. Without proper detoxification, we yo-yo back to a weight often higher than we were before our weight loss to protect our organs from toxic overload and restore the toxins safely back into our fat cells.
