This treatment focuses on warming, smoothing, and stimulating stagnant cool kapha tissue. A warm herbal oil is gently applied and then a cupping machine is used to gently move and smooth the lumpy tissues. Afterward, you can enjoy an infrared sauna.
Cupping ~ This suction creates a negative pressure environment allowing for myofascial decompression as the skin is drawn into the cups. While massage therapy uses direct pressure to release tension, cupping uses negative pressure to lift the muscle fibers and increase blood flow to the area. Several purported benefits of cupping include reduced pain, muscle tightness and inflammation, improved blood flow (circulation), and increased range of motion.
Infrared ~ Supports detoxification, anti-inflammatory, relaxation, immunity, muscle recovery & overall vitality. Sunlighten’s highly efficient, SoloCarbon infrared heating technology gives you the best detoxification experience because it is clinically proven to raise core body temperature by three degrees. You experience a deep, productive sweat from your cells as the SoloCarbon infrared waves penetrate your skin and heat your core to expel the toxins, rather than just sitting in hot, ambient air that only heats your outer skin.
This creates an enjoyable experience of more productive sweat, rather than an uncomfortable, stifling hot and less-productive sweat. Research shows specific light frequencies have specific activity. NIR has the perfect wavelength (880 nm) to penetrate skin best. When NIR is applied to the skin, fibroblast cells absorb light activity, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. Over time, those increases create thicker, younger-looking skin, decrease lines, fade scars, and promote skin renewal, cell health, and tissue growth.
