The Los Angeles Detox Secret (Even Kim K. Doesn’t Sweat it!)

In Los Angeles, detox can mean two things. In this case, we’re talking about “ridding the body of toxic yuckies.” Yes, that is the technical term. And it is not just a trend. Detoxing may be essential for your overall health, as well as beneficial to your weight loss program.

As if you didn’t already know, Kim Kardashian celebrated her 33rd birthday on Monday. And instead of luxury cars, an exotic trip, or his own album, rumor has it that Kanye gifted the new mom with a private detox spa for her own home. It included a massage room, an aromatherapy room, a Japanese-style meditation room… But the piece de resistance? A state-of-the-art infrared sauna.

And who can blame her? Just 30 minutes in an infrared sauna can reduce toxins (including mercury and heavy metals), improve circulation, burn up to 600 calories, reduce inflammation and strengthen the immune system.

So it involves getting super sweaty, right? Wrong!

When most people hear the word “sauna” they picture someone dripping buckets of sweat in a sweltering, miserable little room.  The Los Angeles detox secret is that you don’t need to sweat!  It may challenge what you’ve always believed, but sweating is simply the body’s response to overheating. It doesn’t have the magical effect we’d always hoped for. But infrared saunas are different – they heat you from within, detoxifying you on cellular level. Basically, you’re sweating on the inside.

And the icing on the cake is that your head is not inside the infrared sauna pod. You’re breathing fresh air, listening to music. Even your blow-out will keep! We DON’T need to heat our brains, which is not only uncomfortable, but dangerous. And an extra perk? The infrared saunas here at FBE are lined with 440 real jade stones!

Whether you roll like Kanye and want to buy your own infrared sauna, or you prefer to keep your sauna experiences at the spa, come to our West Hollywood gym Firm Body Evolution. We’re sort of like the headquarters for all things detox in Los Angeles. And remember – you don’t have to sweat to reap the benefits!
