Review of MyFirWellness and FIR sauna.

TMy FIR Wellness and Fir Sauna Review 

I experienced FIR (Far Infrared Sauna) and here is my review. 


 I drove to Damansara Perdana and reached the outlet situated at:
 MyFIR WELLNESS (FIR MALAYSIA) 
owned by:DESTINATION WELLNESS SDN BHD
PG-11, Tropics Shopping Centre (Komplek Prima)
No. 15, Jalan PJU 8/1, Bandar Damansara Perdana,

(One floor above Jaya Grocer - Damansara Perdana)



Perdana Shopping Centre @ Tropics, Damansara Perdana


 Outside the outlet, there is an article on Fir Wellness by Dr Nor Ashikin Mokhtat, and she explains in detail the benefits of FIR
 Now, just what is FIR? It stands for FAR INFRARED  :

Infrared saunas are an effective tool for natural healing and prevention. Infrared light has the ability to penetrate human tissue which in turn produces a host of anti-aging health benefits making infrared saunas one of the “hottest” home therapies for overall healthier living. If you want to get yourself back into balance, an infrared saunamay be the ticket to achieving your wellness goals


 Well, with that information, I still did not know what FIR is all about, then Mary led me to this cabin, there are three and I will be trying out the one below:
 When you open it, there is a bench with white padded towelling and another towel for you to use, wooden flooring, walls, and benches. Rather like a conventional sauna except that you will not be enveloped with hot steam, but infra red rays.  "But we are staying in an equatorial country, we get the sun all year round.  Surely I do not need to be exposed to extra infrared rays?" I looked incredulously at Mary.  She allayed my doubts and proceeded to prepare the cabin for me.
 While she was busy, I busied myself too, taking shots of myself in front of the cabin.


 Soon I had to strip and get inside.  Here comes the acid test, will I be burned? Will I turn dark and tanned? I had a cough and cold with running nose coming on, would I be able to undergo the sauna?
 
 Took a selfie of myself in the cabin fully dressed, all neat with hair in place and fresh with no perspiration yet.

Okay now I am ready and looking real apprehensive
 The settings before:
The settings after...it is reaching 46 degrees!!!!

 I drank nearly all the water provided to replenish my fluids lost!!


It is now 47!! 
 48!! I waited for 49 with bated breath, would I be burnt to a crisp?
 WOW!!! It has reached 49 degrees!!! Gosh!! that will be heatwave material in KL and definitely Melbourne!
 EH? I could still manage a smile, it was not all that bad, and my fears were unfounded because I thought I would have passed out with a heat stroke or something. Now I look dishevelled and my hair is all messy!
 Look at my sweat! Beads of perspiration just ran down like rivulets of water down my brow and face!!

Sweating is the body’s safe and natural way to heal & stay healthy. Far infrared sauna benefits the body by heating it directly causing a rise in core temperature resulting in a deep, detoxifying sweat at the cellular level, where toxins reside. 

Listed here are the benefits of FIR: from http://www.sunlighten.com/infrared-sauna-health-benefits.html

This is a result of my before and after of the Fir treatment.
Of course, I need to persevere in my treatments to see solid results!

Then Mary and her partner showed me their FIR blanket.

new fir far infrared sauna blanket for weight loss, it's a body slimming blanket using nfrared ray heat

For people who do not have the time to come to the outlet to sit in the cabin for half and hour, you can buy the blanket and lie down and get the same benefits.
 
These are re benefits of the Slimming blanket.
 He opens out the blanket to show me,  It has three panels to target different parts of your body: waist, hips or abdomen.

 so simple to use, just plug into the device to measure the temperature and duration 
 You can choose different heat application for three different parts of your body



 so now I am doing a demo of how I will be cocooned in the slimming blanket, just 30 minutes and the treatment is complete!

 Comfortable and comforting, you can just doze off!

 Special garments to target different areas of complaint
crystals lamps diffusing a warm soothing negative ion light are also available.

With that, I ended my session, wiser and happier that I was able to try Fir treatment and learn of all its benefits. You should try too, just choose your slot and make an appointment!
