What Happens: First developed in Japan, the Iyashi Dôme, in which clients are baked in a blisteringly hot cubicle, comes from the ancient technique of being buried in warm sand to detoxify via perspiration. Thankfully technology has come on a long way since then…The modern Iyashi Dome allows the user to lie back and relax on a comfortable wooden bed, whilst listening to soothing Japanese influenced music. The technology of the unique black carbon dome gradually heats up the body by emitting vibrations of far-infrared rays that are in line with the far-infrared rays which are naturally produced within the body.
A friendly therapist gives me a class of water to drink, hands me some paper knickers and leaves me to lie down on my front. After 15 mins, she returns and helps me turn onto my back. It was tough at times – you started to panic about how much water you are losing but 30 mins passed really quickly. The therapist comes back, hands me another glass of water and tells me the 30 mins I have just spent lying down are the equivalent of a 20km run, except better for the knees, and I should see the results in terms of weightloss and body fat reduction very soon.
It takes a while to get up as the treatment leaves you feeling lightheaded, but as soon as you go back onto the street outside you cool down and feel lots more energetic. It feels like your whole body has been cleansed. No wonder Gwyneth and Paltrow are fans!
And did it work? Immediately after the treatment I weighed exactly the same due to the water drunk but one day later I was down 1ib. And skin felt lots clearer – smoother and more healthy. With a continued course of treatments, there would probably be even more results. The testimonals on the MyDetoxDiet.co.uk website are certainly impressive
Cost: SPECIAL OFFER of £49 for a course of two treatments or £38 for one treatment.
