Headed over to Atria Shopping Gallery on 6 April 2016 for sweatspa™’s introduction of Malaysian pop and R&B singer, Ning Baizura binti Sheikh Hamzah or better known as Ning Baizura, as its brand ambassador. Ning has won various awards including AIM Awards, Voice of Asia, and Best Artiste Development Award and is known for her roles in movies such as Malaikat di Jendela and Muallaf.
As the brand ambassador and spokesperson for sweatspa™, Ning will advocate the importance of sweating for health, keeping a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The busy Ning, who is a mother of one, found sweatspa™ the ideal wellness solution for her, having to juggle a hectic schedule, which includes her family, singing career, as well as her businesses.
“sweatspa™ is the place for me to relax and rejuvenate before I start my day,” shared Ning. “I love sweatspa™ because I get to sweat out toxins effortlessly. After each session, I feel so revitalized. I could not stop talking about it. So when sweatspa™ asked me to represent the brand, I was more than delighted to accept the offer because I was already a firm believer of this therapy having seen the difference in my skin, quality of sleep, stamina, and overall health.”
sweatspa™, is different from the traditional saunas, each cabin utilises medical grade Sunlighten™ Full Spectrum Infrared Therapy with emphasis on safety and comfort, to detoxify, relax and rejuvenate the body. The treatment helps users to detoxify the body of toxic chemicals, heavy metals and excess fat through sweating.
Infrared therapy has been in the market for some time however the “Full Spectrum Infrared sauna” is a features the latest technology with its Near, Mid, and Far infrared rays. This means really specific and targeted improvements can be programmed into the treatment.
We got the chance to visit their outlet which is located on the first floor of Atria Shopping Gallery to see this new technological innovation for ourselves. The outlet has multiple rooms which each contain a different sized saunas to cater to the number of individuals going for the treatment. You can opt for the single occupant sauna or if you’re going with a partner you can opt for a bigger sized one.
The staff will take your weight and body fat content beforehand which is entered into the system to help you track your progress, after which customers get to enjoy the sweatspa treatment in the sauna. The treatment can be used in tandem with exercise, and the staff will advise you on whether go have a treatment before or after your exercise depending on the type of exercise.
Sabrina Tang, founder of sweatspa™ added, “Near Infrared Rays are best for wound healing and increased immune functions, Mid Infrared levels are best for increasing circulation and promoting muscle relaxation, and FIR levels are used primarily for detoxification purposes. Customers may enjoy the therapy at our outlets or in the comforts of their home. When they visit us, we will take a body scan; and after each session, our Body Composition Analysis (Inbody) system will read the changes. This way, our customers can track their progress.”
“People today don’t sweat enough. Sweating is a natural function of the human body, and is very important to the body health. The first function is to cool the body down when it is heating up. The second function is to provide a secondary system that removes toxins through the skin. Therefore, sweating could provide greater detoxification benefits to achieve optimal health, beauty and vitality,” added Sabrina.
For those who prefer to enjoy the spa in the comforts of their home, the Sunlighten™ cabins are available for sale, with two lines available – the Signature series and the mPulse Series.
