We call it: Skeptical Investigation. (Copyright pending.)
They call it the Sudatonic Infrared Sauna. And they claim that getting wrapped in an infrared sauna blanket for 45 minutes will eliminate toxins and mimic the effects of exercise. (We don’t want to know who “they” are, either.)
Coming off a month of depravity, one of our dependable agents drank their body weight in water, suited up (a bathing suit is recommended), slathered on the specially formulated creams and climbed onto this space-age detox blanket.
Unlike a regular sauna, the heat was less intense and was consolidated right on their body as they lay there like a loosely wrapped burrito. Once the sweat came, it poured (thankfully, dabbed away from our agent’s face with ice-cold cloths by the technician).
Then: neck massage, uncontrollable nap.
Our brave soldier lost a few pounds (that were likely regained after some martinis—note: the blanket technicians suggest water). And felt an endorphin rush similar to running. Bonus: a nagging running injury was straightened out.
Bottom line: physical glory can be accomplished while napping.
