Feeling a little sluggish and a bit less than fantastic, I decided to try the ozone steam sauna at Taksu Spa in Ubud. It promises great health benefits and I was keen. While I tried just the sauna, it can bring even greater benefits when coupled with their full detox program of five to seven days. With a regimen of exercise, massage and a radical change in diet (no alcohol, abundant green juices, and plenty of good fresh food), any follower can feel like a new person!
Half an hour in the ozone steam sauna creates changes to our feelings of wellbeing and general health, not to mention increased feelings of relaxation. Being zipped up in the little steam box was not an unpleasant experience, in fact it was quite nice. I felt the rivulets of water and toxins streaming from my pores as the ozone made its way in boosting my immune system. The induced hyperthermia which mimics the effects of a fever, is a beneficial process which results in toxins leaving the lymphatic system and spares the liver the difficult task of dealing with them.
It is a cutting edge detox process! As the steam opens the pores, the ozone enters the body more easily which then travels to the lymph and fat cells, where it does its work. With continued treatments it can help with pain management, arthritis, stress and muscle tension and the ozone, according to alternate medical practitioners, can even help to cure and modify some kinds of cancer.
Body metabolism is increased, (which helps with weight loss) toxins are eliminated, while the increased blood circulation aids in faster body repair, not to mention giving us a fresher, more youthful look. It also helps to kill off viruses and bacterial infections in the body.
Even after one half hour treatment I felt more relaxed. The lactic acid that causes stiffness in the joints and muscles was less. Toxins are oxidized and then eliminated through the skin, lungs, kidneys and colon. All in all it is a great experience which I will be repeating as soon as recommended.
Some choose to make a day of it at Taksu, you can combine this treatment with a massage from their extensive spa menu and also enjoy lunch in their jungle view restaurant where an array of healthy foods and fresh juices and espresso coffee are all on the menu.
Personally I can’t wait for my next treatment and the start of my fresh new healthy body! You can try it all at Taksu in Ubud.
NB: Anyone suffering from a mega hangover will also be revived and renewed with this great treatment. Even a normal steam is effective, but the addition of the ozone makes it that much better.
