Traditional Japanese Detox

Find Balance – Return to the Source

The Japanese have a traditional therapy of ridding themselves of toxins – the Suna Ryoho – which they have been practicing for centuries. This involved burying themselves in sand on the beach near hot springs, in very specific places with very specific properties. Once they are buried, through sweating, these toxins were expelled.

The Iyashi Dôme was designed to imitate this practice as infrared rays penetrate the body by up to 40mm, therefore you will sweat out toxins from the bloodstream.

One 30min session produces the same amount of sweat equivalent to walking over 20km (when the body begins to draw from deep fat reserves), but without the negative effects such as cardiac risks, premature use of the body, development of fatty acids etc. When this sweat is analysed, the presence of elements found in Category 2 perspiration are detected (see below).

The Iyashi Dôme is a tool for health and beauty

  • Refinement and improvement of the silhouette – burns up to 600 calories a session
  • Beneficial for skin – anti-aging effect – makes skin softer and appearing younger
  • Great for joint pain and muscular relaxation

We live in a toxic world – stress creates toxins in the body, we inhale pollution in our air and food, develop allergies, fatigue and cellulite. These toxins and heavy metals are harmful, and often the body will react by retaining water in order to dilute them. Before reaching a saturation point, the body will produce fat in reaction to the volume and this generates weight gain. The heavy metals cannot mix with water so are assimilated into the fat cells in our bodies.

The Iyashi Dôme was developed to counteract this – it is a revolutionary organic-based far infrared therapy to produce perspiration. This makes it possible to purify, regenerate and get slimmer by balancing the body.

Perspiration is an essential way for the body to eliminate toxins

There are 2 types of perspiration:

Category 1: by the Sudoripares glands (bath, sauna, hammam, sport) – this sweat has a composition close to that of urine – salt, uric acid, ammonium, amino acids, potassium, creatine, urea and water.

Category 2: by the Sebaceous and Apocrine glands (intense sports activity, Iyashi Dôme) – this sweat is generated by the decomposition of fats such as fatty acids, cholesterol, subcutaneous fat, lactic acids, active oxygen, toxins and heavy metals stored in the body, and also Dioxins (see below).

What are Dioxins?

Dioxins are a generic name for a family of extremely toxic chemical pollutants created by mainly by industrial processes and incinerated waste which accumulate in the food chain and are absorbed by humans mainly through the consumption of meat, dairy, eggs and fish.

The World Health Organisation discloses that dioxins can cause reproductive and developmental problems, damage the immune system, interfere with hormones and also cause cancer.

Once dioxins enter the body, they can last a long time due to their chemical stability and ability to be absorbed by fat tissue where they are then stored. Their half-life in the body is estimated to be 7 to 11 years. Dioxins tend to accumulate in the food chain, and the higher an animal is in the food chain, the higher the concentration of dioxins.

Benefits for Skin

A recent clinical trial conducted over a 28 day period involving 13 patients, each using the dome twice a week, showed a decrease in wrinkles obtained by 100% of the participants, on at least one of the areas measured, up 18%, while skin complexion became more luminous for 80% of participants, up to 12%. It also helped to brighten the skin and reduce dark spots by up to 24%.*

How often should I use it?

2 or 3 times a week is ideal, however you will still get benefit from using it as little or often as you can.
