Black Charcoal Room
Black charcoal actually has very positive medicinal attributes. Activated charcoals' main use is to treat accidental poisonings. Once ingested, it binds with certain chemicals in the digestive tract, preventing them from being absorbed into your system and causing harm. Activated charcoal lowers the concentration of total lipids, cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood serum, liver, heart and brain. Charcoal has been used as a poultice to reduce inflammation and absorb poisons from your skin caused by infection, chemicals, or insect bites and stings. Charcoal alleviates intestinal gas and upset stomach. Charcoal is also used in the treatment of allergies, skin problems, diabetes mellitus, diarrhea, constipation, bloating, ulcer, bad breath, body odor, lower cholesterol levels, rheumatoid arthritis, and more. This room is designed to provide these benefits of black charcoal and is well-regulated by the Raffa Yoga Relaxation Center staff.
Himalayan Salt Grotto
It was discovered that miners who work deep below the earth's surface in the Himalayan salt mines rarely suffer from allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments. This is because they spend their days in an environment saturated with negative ions, which Himalayan salt releases naturally. The air we breathe everyday is filled with negative and positive ions and, in order to maintain a healthy living atmosphere, these negative and positive ions must remain in balance.
Unfortunately, many of the conveniences of modern life, such as our electronic devices, cell phones and heating and cooling systems, produce an abundance of positive ions which throw the air we breath completely out of balance. That, in turn, can contribute to the development of allergies, asthma, stress, insomnia and other sleep disorders, sinus and migraine headaches, and a host of other health problems for many individuals.
As the world's foremost natural air ionizer and purifier, Himalayan salt serves as a corrective balance against the flood of toxins that often permeates the air we breath. Sit back relax and enjoy the natural benefits that enhance our wellbeing by breathing in hymalayan rock salt in our replica of a salt mine at urban sweat today.
Natural, holistic and alternative medicine practitioners have long recommended hammans as detoxification treatments and to promote mental well-being. They are also used to treat pain and inflammation, as well as a variety of medical conditions such as skin problems, asthma, bronchitis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, and muscle and soft tissue injuries. The heat from the room causes an elevated body temperature which works, as a fever would, to boost immunity by increasing white blood cell production. Heavy sweating helps eliminate toxins, chemicals and other impurities from the skin. Your increased heart rate, blood circulation and metabolic rate are all part of the regimen. You will experience looser, relaxed muscles after exercise and relief for stress, tension and high blood pressure.
The sense of mental well-being and rejuvenation you get from the Urban Hamman room is a side effect of open skin pores and released trapped oils and dirt. The aim is to increase blood circulation to the skin, relax tense facial muscles, loosen dead, dry skin which makes exfoliation easier and to promote a clear complexion. Scrubbing with a loofah or exfoliating gloves immediately after steaming will remove any dead, dry skin which has accumulated, leaving skin glowing, smooth, and soft.
