The easiest way to describe what it’s like being on a Far Infrared mat is that it’s like ‘Sunshine in a bottle’, that kind of feeling you get after a summer holiday, or in my case as though someone just switched the lights on in my body.
They are not ‘Far Infrared Saunas’, although also use FIR. A Sauna heats the air, and needs to be hot, so that you can detox by sweating. These mats heat the body, and do not need to heat the body to a high temperature to aid detoxing.
Far Infrared has amazing scientifically proved powers of rejuvenation. Our mats from from Get Fitt are at the forefront of the technology already used by Dr’s and specialists and now available for Spa’s like us. They improve the circulation in the body and ‘clean the cells’ helping the body to heal and regain homeostasis. We all use the Far Infrared at Espiritu and have found it seems to be able to help everyone!
If you are very ill, then we would recommend that you just try the mats for 10 mins at a low temperature and build up slowly. We offer a free initial consultation and will build a program where you gradually increase, depending on your symptoms. There are also courses of 6 and 10 that you can buy, if you would like to use it regularly. For example: Fibromyalgia, M.E, CFS, Lyme Disease, EDS, Epstein Barr Virus, M.S, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Diabetes, Heart disease, Cancer, High Blood Pressure, Lupus.
Otherwise you can use them for 20 or 30 mins; however long you can spare. If you are not keen on heat, then we can keep it low, but you will still gain the benefit of the Far Infrared; there is no need to sweat like in a sauna to reap the benefits of the mats.
The beautiful chair mat, that also incorporates Amethyst with the power of Far-Infrared is the perfect add on to your pedicure, manicure, blow dry or colour service.
Ideal for when you need:
- a pick-me-up
- stress relief
- back pain
- period pain.
** Currently only available booked in advance.
The cocoon is an experience all on it’s own, with an added Negative Ions boost. We’ll pop you into the cocoon in a quiet room, with candles and relaxing music, so that you can float off and relax. Or you can add it as an upgrade to your massage, facial or Spa treatment for an extra treat of energy or healing.
Even better: come with your friend or partner and while one of you is on the Cocoon for 30 mins, the other can be having a lovely massage. Then you can swap round. A really lovely experience for you to share.
Ideal for when you:
- Are very exhausted and need a big boost
- Have an illness or disease and need to boost your immune system.
- Need pain relief
- Detoxing and weight loss
When you first try the Cocoon, you will have a free consultation. We recommend that if you need to use it regularly, that you add a 15min ‘Lifestyle consultation’ every now and again to help you make tweaks in your lifestyle that will boost your health and well being.
