Fancy burning 600 calories lying down? It’s no sweat (so to speak) with Iyashi Dome. First developed in Japan, this treatment is based on an ancient technique, called Suna Ryoho, where participants would bury themselves in hot sand to detoxify the body through perspiration. Benefits include a purified and rebalanced body, softer, smoother skin and it may even aid in weight loss by reducing the size of fat cells. Have it after a tough gym session, before a big sporting event or even as an ultimate lunch-break power nap.
Having taken its head well out of the sand, the modern Iyashi Dome allows you to lie back and relax on a comfortable wooden bed whilst listening to soothing Japanese music; significantly reducing chances of friction burn and seagull attacks.
The unique black carbon dome which then surrounds you gradually heats up the body by emitting infrared rays that are in line with those naturally produced within the body. The head remains un-covered during this process and the breeze from the state-of-the-art Dyson Air Multiplier refreshes the face whilst the dome cocoons the rest of the body for a purifying, regenerating and slimming treatment.
The Iyashi Dome initiates a deep cleansing session, usually lasting 30 minutes, in which a large volume of perspiration and toxins are eliminated from the body as it burns energy and starts to breakdown fats including cholesterol, fatty acids and subcutaneous fats as well as lactic acid and accumulated toxins. This deeper level perspiration is equivalent to the same effect that might be achieved from a vigorous 20 Km run but without the aggressive effect on the body, or the need for a good pair of trainers.
A full consultation is given at the start of the first treatment, which will include a ‘Body Composition’ analysis reading being taken to record your weight, muscle mass, water and fat percentages. At the end of the treatment session these readings are taken again and a print out is provided showing the results before and after the session with the percentage changes.
For best results a series of sessions is recommended, but benefits can be gained from a single session - although this is not guaranteed. Due to the intensity of the treatment 48 hours must be allowed between each session.
Iyashi Dome has no reported negative side effects however, if you suffer from heat rash or generally dislike intense heat, this may not be the one for you.
The long infrared waves emitted by Iyashi Dome are produced using safe and natural plant-based products. The organic infrared (B-carbon) rays emitted by the Iyashi Dome are between 5 to 20 micrometers and correspond best with our bodies.
