Easy Detox? The Sudatonic Body Wrap (part 2)


What does this FIR (far infrared) wrap do? Well, it does many things. Here is the basic breakdown (pun intended 😉 ). The special herbal creams are applied prior to and after being in the wrap. These promote the breakdown of fat under the skin and improve circulation around fat. If you don’t already know, most toxins are stored in adipose (fat) tissue. If you “melt” the fat you release the toxic material. That, in and of itself, my friends, is a detox. You are then wrapped in the FIR blanket for a full 40 minutes. During this time the infrared technology raises your body temperature….a lot. It is like an induced fever and is thought that vermin like bacteria, viruses and other nasties that make you sick are killed in this process. Because of this it is believed that if you are sick this can essentially help you get well fast. It is my recommendation that you come in for your wrap as soon as you feel like you’re coming down with something; that way we can get rid of it quick and keep you from getting sick. This is not a guarantee, but I have seen it happen. The Sudatonic wrap also increases circulation dramatically, which helps to heal broken bones, muscle tissue and other soft and hard tissues by exponentially increasing cell nutrition and oxygenation. The heart works hard during this process, trying to cool the body down – hence the super circulation, so you are simulating exercise. It is said that one wrap can burn up to 600 calories and simulate a 6-9 mile run. The herbal creams and FIR technology help to liquify fat and cellulite and it’s converted into fatty acids your body uses while working so hard in the wrap. I know, I know…sounds bogus. However, when you see people doing 2-3 wraps in a week and losing pants sizes….well, you start to wonder if there isn’t something to this….and no, it’s not water weight.

FIR treatments can be beneficial for those suffering from:

  • Arthritis
  • Sciatica and backache
  • Diabetes
  • Varicose Veins
  • Cellulite
  • Neuritis
  • Bursitis
  • Rheumatism
  • Strained Muscles and injury
  • Stretch Marks
  • Menstrual Cramps
  • Radiation Sickness
  • Cancer Pain
  • Compression Fracture Pain
  • Gastritis
  • Asmtha

Sudatonic wraps are also proven to remove toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and carcinogenic heavy metals such as cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel and mercury. These are flushed out of your system through your sweat glands.

I suppose the proof is in the pudding, as they say. I’ve seen a lot of pudding myself. There’s no denying the putrid smell of the sweat that is exuded in this process. Everyone is always fascinated by the sight and scent of their sweat after this treatment. It’s also cool to see what you’ve expelled after one of these wraps. Come see for yourself!

Easy Detox? The Sudatonic Body Wrap



Most people would like to know the easiest way to detoxify their bodies. The first thing that comes to my mind is….isn’t this an oxymoron? My answer is, in a word, yes. To truly detoxify your body’s systems it needs time, nutritional support and rest. This means a lot of commitment on the part of the person who wants to clean out their vessel. There is way too much information to get into a meaningful discussion on the subject of detoxification here, however, if you’re interested in finding out more you can contact me via my website:

So, for those of you who want to do a detox without the commitment or effort there is an answer that I have discovered. To my knowledge this is the most effective way to detoxify the body without doing anything but laying in a body wrap. While this does not come anywhere close to a 30 day, full body cleanse whilst juice fasting, this will elicit the most profound results of any 2 hour detox program anywhere. What is this method already (I can hear you saying)?! It’s called a Sudatonic body wrap. It’s a fancy name for a pretty amazing combination of herbal creams, detox massage strokes and far infrared technology in a body blanket.

This wrap has been around for awhile, however, I have only been working with it for about a year. I had known about it for maybe a year before that, but as I’m a skeptic, I bushed it off as being hype. Then I was asked to do one as an emergency favour, which I accepted. I got trained in it and experienced it and that’s when my opinion started to change…then I gave the wrap to the emergency client, heard his story and I was forever converted. I learned this client (who was once virtually incapacitated from serious injury) went from being unable to move without intense pain to going back to his (insane) routine of mountain schlepping and deep sea diving. I worked with this person a number of times at the end of his treatment plan and saw miraculous results. I’m a fan.

Now the wrap was used to treat injured muscle and bone tissue in this case, as well as to break down scar and connective tissue which cocooned areas and rendered them rather immobile. Astonishing the results. These are just a few of the myriad benefits this wrap has to offer. Don’t worry, this DOES actually pertain to detoxing! To find out how and the major benefits check out tomorrow’s post! You can also go to to schedule your own Sudatonic body wrap appointment.

Find Your Perfect Massage Therapist in Jackson Hole….or anywhere.

My friend, Mila, commented on the last blog and asked a very valid question. I said I would write my next blog in response and this is it. The question was, “Is there a site out there that talks about good therapists etc and rates them, like with doctors and teachers?” In other words, how do you find a good therapist. This is a great question and one that I know most people think about, though most don’t ask. I hope this can demystify the process for people and answer a lot of questions on people’s minds.

It is pertinent because it seems like finding the perfect therapist is a major challenge, whether you are looking for a therapist in the city where you live or while you’re vacationing somewhere. I’m going to give my best tips on how and where to find your perfect massage therapist while you’re in Jackson Hole, or wherever you may be.

My first and best tip: find me! (ok, huge open window…couldn’t resist the gratuitous plug;) )

The greatest asset we have, in this respect and all others, is our intuition. Key in to it; listen to it. It is your greatest compass to what is right for you. I know what you’re saying….”I don’t know how to listen to my intuition. How do I know what it’s telling me? How do I use it? You’re full of crap!”

This is how it can be applied to finding your therapist….google massage therapist jackson hole or insert wherever you may be. Then look down a page or two or three of the places listed. Feel into each name or place and see what resonates with you. If something strikes you check out the website. If that also resonates with you, chances are you have a hit. Checking out websites is a great way to get an idea and a “feel” for what this person or place is about. You don’t have to analyse or think too hard on it….you pick up on the energy of the name and/or site and you intuitively pick up information about it. Now, the energetics of it is a whole other post and probably those of you who thought I was full of crap earlier are reiterating past statement. Just trust me. Trust is a huge part of utilising intuition. So, don’t be so judgmental or hard on yourself. If you go with the flow things will happen as they should. Hmm, seem to have jumped on the Buddhist soapbox for a second there…well, upward and onward.

Another great way to get clued into the who’s who and what’s what of bodywork in any particular area is to ask a local who knows. If you’re visiting or staying with someone who lives there ask them who they prefer, or if they have heard of anyone really good. Another tip I give clients who ask me this question is to go to or call the local health food store and ask for recommendations. Usually places like these are in the know, as they are in cahoots with the therapists. ***hint – therapists usually love places like these and often times hang out there, so you may have the good fortune of meeting one if you go to the health food store yourself. This is the best use of your intuition, as you get the energy directly from the source. You will probably know if you like the therapist straight away or not.*** You can also just randomly ask people that you encounter on your adventures and most people love to talk about their therapist so you might be in for some great detail and information.

As a side note, I tend to stay away from phone books. For some reason I have never liked to find personal stuff like massage therapists from the phone book.

You can also find therapists by city or area if you go to massage membership sites like the AMTA or NCBTMB website. They have ‘find a therapist’ sections where you can type in a city and therapists who are members of these organizations will come up. This can be useful and may give some credibility to the therapist…..but not always. Again….use your intuition.

Now, this leads me to some important things of which to be aware. Every state has different rules and laws governing the practice of massage therapy. Even cities and towns can have their own rules and laws that dictate how massage is practiced in their boundaries. While you’re on vacation, I’d be willing to bet, the last thing you’re going to do is look up the licensure in the place you’re visiting. I don’t blame you, chances are I wouldn’t either….and this is my thang! 😉 This is why I will always look for a Nationally Certified massage therapist if I’m unfamiliar with the massage laws in the place that I am looking. This is your best protection if you don’t want to go through the hassle; it’s a good kind of catch all and your best protection in finding, at the very least, a professional and knowledgeable therapist. A perfect example is right here in Jackson. Wyoming has so licensure for massage. What this means is that any joe shmoe off the street can LEGALLY claim to be a massage therapist and practice massage. That does not sit well with me, so I like to err on the side of caution. I have actually seen people claim to be massage therapists and charge people for massage without ever having gone to massage school. I’m sure it happens all the time. So, if you don’t know now you know – national.

It is also interesting to note that therapists who are nationally certified and/or belong to massage therapist membership organizations are bound by their codes of ethics. This will also help to ensure ethical and professional standards.

So, hopefully this is the yellow brick road all can follow to bodywork bliss and shed some light on how to connect with that perfect therapist. Until I create my “Stevie’s List” of therapists (you know….like Angie’s List?) this is the best advice I can give. Please leave comments and ideas, if you have any to add, below.
