We like to make resolutions and plans for ourselves when the New Year is upon us, don’t we? Maybe there’s something that we’d like to do to start the new year of on the right foot. If this sounds like you, I think I just might have the perfect thing for you.
Let’s head on over to Redwood Beauty and Wellness, a wellness studio located in Roxborough. I went right before the holiday madness, and it was truly such a lovely way to center and cleanse myself in every sense of the word.
Before we get into the treatment that I received, let me share some of their other services. They also offer IV drips, facials, massages, waxing, and much more. They also have THE Morpheus8, which is all the rage right now. Basically anything you could need to feel great inside and out can be found here, in a warm and welcoming environment.
I met with the fabulous owner Dawn who prepared me for my day ahead. The service I had was an Infrared Detox (they also offer sudatonic detox and Preso-therapy infrared detox), which is a one-hour sweat session. I’ll take you step-by-step through the experience:
About the treatment: “In this 1-hour session, you will detox your mind, body and spirit. You will sweat out toxins, burn calories, lose cravings, improve sleep and gain energy” (spoiler alert – all of this happened). Dawn put me at ease and explained every aspect of the treatment, from what to expect to how I would feel afterwards, so I felt fully prepared going into it.
I then put on a mesh-cloth jumpsuit, which retains all of the sweat. Dawn got me settled and cozy into the sauna blanket, turned on spa music, and it was time to get into the zone.
It didn’t take too long to begin feeling the heat. It. was. hot. I sweated like I never have before. More than I thought was humanly possible. I was actually impressed with myself. I allowed my mind to wander, which helped me get into the right mental state. I was also checked on about every 15 minutes to see how I was feeling and to offer words of encouragement. I was so appreciative when the ladies would say to me “you’ve got this” when I thought that I didn’t
After the hour was up, it was time to get unzipped and feel the results. My core body temperature reached around 92° F (!). I got up very slowly, drank the electrolyte infused water offered at the end of the session and peeled off the jumpsuit to unveil a cleansed, detoxed and brand new Camille.
Prior to the session, I had mentioned that I often have knots in my shoulder area. Dawn shared that the pain would gone if not subside, and I could not believe that the pain had completely dissipated. That was the wildest part to me.
I absolutely enjoyed my experience at Redwood, and if you’re feeling like you need to get rid of something inside of you, whether that be physically, emotionally or spiritually, an infrared service here did just the trick.
If you’re interested in booking a session, you can give them a call at (267) 335-3153 or book here. And they also offer payment plans.
Thank you so much for having me!
