You all know I live for finding things that are an experience, fun, and worth the coins, especially if it provides health benefits. I found this cute little spa, Fuchsia Spa, and near my home. That made me extremely happy, not a far drive. The staff was pleasant, and facility was exceptionally clean. Let us get to why I sought out Fuchsia Spa.
I have severe inflammation in my hip (hip bursitis). It evolved while carrying my daughter in my womb and it has never gone away. Anyhow, I am always on a quest to find soothing options, such as regular turmeric supplements, foods that reduce inflammation, so on and so forth.
If you have experienced the fire that hip bursitis sets a blaze within in your tendons, googling soothing relief is endless. I came across an article, and you know it takes just one article to send me into the rabbit hole, of infrared sauna therapy.
I found the nearest and most suitable spa, where infrared treatments were a service and gave it a whirl. The sauna space was cute, clean, and tranquil. I took two books with me, since I would be in the sauna for one-hour. May as well knock out a few chapters of something.
The experience was HOT. I entered the sauna at 135 degrees, and it slowly climbed to 160 degrees. If you have ever been in any sauna, there was no difference. I was a bit taken back because there were no red lights, as the treatment name alluded.
You had a choice to enter the sauna butt naked, which I immediately thought who had done that before me, in THIS very sauna, or you could keep minimal clothing on to partake in the warmth. I chose the latter and spread three towels across the bench, because you know, the potential butt nakedness that may have taken place before me.
I removed the comfortable slippers, I almost inquired about purchasing, re-dressed, and guzzled down a chilled bottle of water, provided by the spa in a small refrigerator located in the corner. I gathered my things, feelings sweaty but refreshed.
While the inflammation in my hip is not going anywhere after one treatment, I would certainly return as an overall weekend relaxation technique.
