Hello, my healthy hotties!

Last week, we talked about one of my favorite detoxification rituals: sweatin’ out toxins. Our bodies need to detox regularly in order to eliminate those harmful elements and keep our systems functioning optimally—and I’ve found a new, relaxing way to do this: at an “urban” sweat lodge.

If you’re thinking a steamy hut with a fire pit and spirit revelations, you’re not entirely far off. A traditional “sweat lodge” usually refers to the structure you do the sweating in—a natural material dome shaped hut. Now, the urban sweat lodge is the modern equivalent, more like a glam version of the sweat lodge. Think soft beds, cold water within reach, and a big screen TV with a controller in hand.

Sounds pretty swanky, huh? But it’s not really about the accommodations, it’s the experience that happens inside the sweat lodge that really matters. The ancient and sacred ceremony or “sweat” is a religious and/or spiritual purification and healing of the mind, body, and soul. Friends of mine who have experienced a sweat lodge ceremony praise the mental clarity, physical energy and spiritual revitalization they feel afterward.

And those benefits are still available through the contemporary version, in cities across the country, through the “urban” sweat lodge experience. I recently visited Shape House in Los Angeles to give you a behind-the-scenes view of what it’s like to experience this modern detoxification ritual first hand.

Watch and learn, babes!

After you arrive at Shape House, you’re taken to a private room with comfy single-bed with what looks like an ultra heated space-age sleeping bag to slide into.

And man o’ man does it get hot!!

At Shape House, they strive to honor the ancient traditions behind sweating while incorporating modern FAR infrared technology, so that sweating can be a convenient, affordable, and nourishing experience for everyone. According to Shape House, when you sweat using FAR infrared technology, you enhance your body’s ability to free itself from toxic chemicals, pathogens, and heavy metals by cleansing from the inside out. This result is an intense, detoxifying, health-boosting sweat that helps you look and feel healthier, happier, and brighter.

Now, in case you need a little distraction, you get your own personal TV and headphones, so you can easily catch up on “Game of Thrones”—but if you’re looking for a more traditional “sweat” experience, try using the time to meditate and reconnect with your body and spirit. Either way is a win-win!

About 30 minutes into your sweat, one of the lovely staffers will also come in and put a cold washcloth on your forehead. It’s heaven!

The entire process takes 50 minutes, and it can be a spiritual experience no matter how you spend your time. Like a traditional sweat lodge, the benefits include increased mental clarity, less stress, uplifted moods—and because you can experience the urban sweat lodge more regularly, you can also improve your skin, burn calories, lose weight and deepen your sleep.

In case you need any more proof, check out my glowing, blissful face after finishing my “urban” sweat lodge experience. I’m still riding high on the good vibes!
