Ginger Fomentation Treatment

ginger-176x255The strong scent of ginger in the air takes our mind to faraway places, its effects on the body have been known for centuries. We begin this aromatic journey with freshly grated organic ginger cooked in water, hot compresses soaked in this brew are applied to all major organs. The steam tent’s penetrating nature will assist the ginger to disperse stagnated yin substances such as mucus and fat accumulations relieving joint pain and increasing respiratory function

Ginger has the ability to strongly increase blood circulation, dilate blood vessels and body fluids at areas where stagnation exists. This stagnation usually manifests itself in the form of pain, inflammation, swelling or stiffness.

Due to its nature, ginger easily penetrates into the body. Because of its Strong heat from the hot towels and the steam tent will dilate the blood vessels and thereby it will activate the movement of stagnated fluids, melt or soften mucus stagnation’s and fatty accumulations and will tend to break up mineral crystallization’s. Strong heat has the further advantage of penetrating deeply into the body. Thus a ginger compress can exert its influence deep inside the body, even within solid organs such as the kidneys and liver, or within the lungs.

As a result of this double effect, thick liquids in the body start to liquefy, heavy deposits start to dissolve, stagnated liquids begin to move again, and gradually all treated tissues become cleansed and nourished with fresh blood.

DURING THIS TREATMENT YOU WILL BE ENVELOPED FROM CHEST TO TOE WITH HOT TOWELS THAT HAVE BEEN COOKING IN ORGANIC GINGER ROOT, THE TENT WILL BE PLACED AND YOUR BODY STEAMED TO A TOASTY 115-125 DEGREES. YOUR HEAD AND HEART WILL REMAIN COOL WITH ROSE WATER POURED ON YOUR HEAD…SIMPLY INCREDIBLE.. AMAZINGLY DETOXING

Benefits of Steam Treatments

The heat from a Steam tent treatment raises your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. During a fever, the production of white blood cells is increased, as is the rate of their release into the blood stream. White blood cells are the primary agents of the immune system. As the generation of antibodies speeds up, so does the production of interferon, an anti-viral protein and others known as Heat –Shock proteins. In this manner, your body’s immune system is strengthened as it works to combat the fever.

Scientific Research

As the body works to cool itself, there is a substantial increase in heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. Blood flow during whole-body hyperthermia is reported to rise from a normal 5 to 7 quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute. This benefit was recognized in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association as long ago as August 1981: “Many of us who run do so to place a demand on our cardiovascular system, not to build big leg muscles. Regular use of a sauna imparts a similar stress on the cardiovascular system, and its regular use may be as effective, a means of cardiovascular conditioning and burning of calories as regular exercise.”

Detoxification and Steam Therapy

Clients are increasingly aware of the wide variety of toxins that may be in their bodies, including herbicides, pesticides, food additives, air pollution, and household chemicals. When ingested, these chemicals can remain in the body for years, altering our metabolism, causing enzyme dysfunction and nutritional deficiencies, creating hormonal imbalances and lowering our threshold of resistance to chronic disease. Today, studies show that most of us have between 400 and 800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies. When our bodies exceed the limit that we can excrete, we begin to store these toxins.

Symptoms of toxicity

The following symptoms are often related to toxicity: allergies, acne, anxiety, burning skin, brain fog, chronic fatigue, chemical sensitivities, depression, eczema, frequent colds or flu, insomnia, loss of dexterity, low body temperature, memory loss, mood swings, muscle and joint pains and poor concentration.

How steam helps you detoxify

Heat experienced during a Steamy Wonder™ treatment speeds up the chemical processes in the body, making it one of the most simple and comfortable ways to rid the body of accumulated toxins. As the pores open up and the million of sweat glands start to excrete, the body rids itself of metabolic and other waste products. Sweat contains almost the same elements of urine, as for this reason the skin is sometimes called the third kidney. Regular sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of carcinogenic metals (lead, mercury, zinc, nickel and cadium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulferic acid and cholesterol.

Boosting the Immune System with Steam Therapy

Traditionally, the benefits of steaming include increased energy, decreased incidence of infections, and fewer colds and flus. Many regular steam or sauna bathers have experienced that a good long sweat bath at the early onset of a cold or flu can help ward off the disease before it manifests as actual symptoms.
