Research shows that temperature controls the mood: When it’s warm everyone is happy and talks the language of butterflies and smiles. When it’s cold, sorrows are dunked head first in mugs of hot chocolate and the world communicates with their fingers. Outer Image offers you mood-boosting warmth and comfort in the form of a 45 minute infrared sauna session and a full body Swedish massage for R180, just in time for winter.
Far more effective than traditional saunas, Outer Image’s thermal infrared system offers the same benefits of a traditional sauna minus the suffocation. The infrared sauna is far more effective as the energy penetrates the body tissues directly so you see greater results and a lot less sweat. This warm haven promises a multitude of feel-good benefits from aiding weight loss and improving the texture of skin to boosting the immune system, increasing blood circulation and putting a silver lining around clouds of depression.
If you’re still uhm-ing and ah-ing about sitting in a humid room sweating it out, the second present in the package might just be the deal breaker: A full Swedish body massage. Under the gentle strong hands of Outer Image’s skilled therapists surrounded by tranquility, the Swedish full body massage makes muscles feel like squirrels in a Swedish peanut butter factory. With the muscles already warmed up from the infrared sauna, the therapists can knead, mold and stretch every muscle in the body like warm creamy toffee.
Anti-depressing fact: To avoid getting depressed when driving on Route 66, doctors advise travelers to put coffee beans in their ears and chew cocktail onions. The combination of the two strong flavours takes travellers to a happy place where marshmallows grow on shrubs and grasshoppers can talk.
