Sweatin' Bathing Suit Season? Head to the Shack
By now, you've probably heard about Organic Sweat Shack in Old Town Newhall (Their Valencia location is expected to open late summer!). It's the place where men and women go to take advantage of the best far-infrared saunas available. What brings them in? Some go just to relax, but most are there to treat a variety of conditions ranging from auto-immune disorders to skin issues and even cancer. The benefits are supported by scientific study, but two seem especially important this time of year.

Studies have shown that the average calorie burn during a 30-minute quality far-infrared sauna treatment is 600; that means the average person can burn through a pound of fat in about five sessions. But that's not the only near-instant benefit you'll see thanks to your sweat sesh. Because the deeply-penetrating far-infrared wavelengths can build collagen, your skin will appear tighter and more smooth. The natural detoxing that comes with all that sweat production reduces the look of cellulite, too. The result: A trimmer, smoother "you" is the pleasant side effect of treating your health condition or heading in to help recover from a particularly-grueling workout (Or day!).

Spring is an excellent time to revisit the goals you set at the beginning of the year - and if one of them was to give Motivate a try, you're almost there!
