Detoxification Solutions

Therapeutic Sauna

The purpose of sauna therapy is to directly impact cardiovascular, respiratory, mental-emotional, immunological, and musculoskeletal health while engaging the self-healing mechanisms of the body. Though our sauna protocols are highly individualized and customizable based on patient comfort and preferences, typical sessions are <30 minutes in duration and heated to between 105-120°F. We couple each sauna session with the use of pure oxygen being provided through a mask, which promotes systemic oxygenation leading to enhanced cellular energy production, metabolism, and modulation of immunity.

Ozone Steam Sauna with Oxygen Therapy- 30 minutes - $70

This experience combines the traditionally foundational healing therapeutics of a humid steam sauna with the additional benefits of ozone therapy, which include the stimulation of anti-oxidant systems, modulation of the immune system, and inhibition of infectious agents (i.e. - bacteria, fungi, etc.).

Far Infrared Sauna with Oxygen Therapy- 30 minutes - $60

Infrared saunas elicit their health promoting effects by utilizing the emission of energy wavelengths in the infrared range in order to activate the metabolic and physiologic activities of the tissues close to the surface of the skin, namely the superficial blood vessels, sweat glands, and nerve receptors.

Stationary Bicycle with Oxygen Therapy- 15-30 minutes - $2/minute

Prompt your body’s natural detoxification pathways to perform their vital tasks with improved efficiency! While the aerobic exercise innately seeks to improve your cardiovascular health overall, the addition of oxygen therapy enhances the efficiency of your blood flow, encourages your tissues to absorb vital nutrients, and detoxify cellular waste.This therapy is highly complementary to either infusion services or sauna therapies.

Whole-Body Detoxification & Drainage Intensive - $600 (An $800 value!)

This intensive session provides multiple therapies synergistically combined to activate systemic detoxification and drainage from deep within. Over the course of 3-4 hours, you will be guided through the process of gentle detoxification and relaxation.

     All of the following services are included:
  1. Lymphatic Massage or Exercise with Oxygen Therapy
    Either of these "pre-treatment" options are designed to increase the flow of toxins and metabolic waste products out of the tissues and into circulation where they can then be bound and eliminated throughout the next phases of treatment.

  2. IV Chelation + Homeopathic Drainage Infusion
    This stage of the intensive is appropriate to both open up the drainage pathways while also binding/chelating these undesirable substances and carrying them toward their elimination.

  3. Ozone Steam or Far-Infrared Sauna with Oxygen Therapy
    The next stage is the continuance of enhancing both the metabolic processes while further opening the channels of detoxification and drainage through the sweat while also promoting relaxation and subtly revitalizing energy from deep within yourself.

  4. IV Nourishing Re-Mineralization Infusion
    The final phase is not only designed to rehydrate your body but also provide it with deeply nourishing vitamins and minerals to replenish your vitality and restore electrolyte balance after such an intensive session.

Heavy Metal IV Chelation Therapy - $220 initial - $320 ongoing

For people who have documented exposure or clinical signs of heavy metal toxicity, intravenous chelation may be an appropriate next step to bind and eliminate these toxic materials from your system. Chelation is a process of "provoking" your body to bind and eliminate toxic metals by infusing a chelating agent intravenously.

After an initial consult, your first chelation infusion session will include pre-/post urine toxic metal testing to determine the nature and extent of your exposure. This involves the collection of a urine sample the morning of your session, receiving the IV, then collecting another urine sample 6 hours after. Both of these urine samples will be dispatched for laboratory testing and the comparative results will assist in identifying the best next step for your optimal care.
