Lyme Disease, Neurotoxins and our Skin

Using Infrared Sauna and Lymphatic Massage to support wellness in chronic Lyme disease recovery and other inflammatory conditions

So many of my chronic pain patients are empowered when they can do something beneficial for their condition after following advice from their doctors. My passion is to help my patients manage this chronic condition by experiencing greater vitality and wellbeing. Medically focused massage session is effective at providing therapeutic relief that can make a significant impact on a person living with many chronic health conditions like Lyme.

What happens with Lyme disease?

When Lyme disease infects our body it releases fat-soluble toxins known as neurotoxins. Initially, the neurotoxins create symptoms including fever, fatigue, or even depression. The recommended treatment is antibiotics. However, sometimes symptoms remain for months to years after the recommended treatment. When left untreated, the remaining neurotoxins may affect the joints, heart, and central nervous system, resulting in a condition known as chronic Lyme disease.

Infrared Sauna

My sauna clients love coming in off a busy day for an instant energy shift, glowing skin,
and a more open heart as they transition from work to home. The infrared saunas are a unique because it works for people of all fitness levels and the immediate positive results are what keep clients coming back for more. A 30-minute infrared session will have you sweating like you just did hot yoga and is an overall efficient way to detox, ease pain, speed muscle recovery, and de-stress. it is a great alternative therapy option for anyone looking to detoxify the body and increase lymphatic flow and circulation. An infrared sauna doesn’t cause you to sweat by uncomfortably high temperatures but by the infrared wavelengths that penetrate deeper into the layers of the body. Just come in and try it and you’ll be delighted by how you feel.

Back – ne? How to get ready for summer….

Acne on your back can affect anyone, not just a teenager. This kind of acne is persistent and difficult to clear up. Now that summer is coming closer and sleeveless shirts are necessary, how do you ignore the back-ne? Infrared sauna can make a big difference.

Most people I talk to don’t understand how different infrared sauna works as compared to other saunas. The infrared sauna causes your body to sweat from a deeper level. This means the sweat you generate is not just a result of your body getting hot and needing to cool off. The light waves from infrared are similar to the wavelengths of the sun resulting in you feeling relaxed after the sauna, as if you went to the beach for the day and didn’t get sunburned. So many clients use the infrared sauna for stress management and there are studies available showing it is good for your heart health as well.

Back to getting good results with conquering back-ne. We have found that doing an infrared sauna session 3 times a week for 4 weeks can help your skin to clear up and this also means you have made some headway on reducing your detox levels–and stress as well. Pretty good for an easy, 30-minute relaxing sauna session!
