EASTERN SPA AMENITIES
Heated Mec Granite Therapy Room with Far Infrared
The floors of the sauna areas are made with a material imported from and found only in Korea, called Mec Granite. This special natural stone contains over 40 minerals which create a healing effect that calms the nerves and strengthens the immune system. As you lay on the hot stone, your body will extract toxins through your pores while rejuvenating your body with all the natural minerals from the Mec Granite stone.
Infrared light is part of the sun’s invisible spectrum. Far infrared therapy duplicates the healthy frequencies of our own cells. The rays deeply penetrate the body and create heat. The tissues absorb these rays as the water in the cells react in a process called resonant absorption. This causes toxins from the cells to be released into the blood stream and excreted through the body’s elimination systems.
You can be exposed to far infrared heat for hours and it will never cause your skin to burn. Far infrared heat is healthy and safe for all living things. In fact, it is so safe, that it is used in hospitals to warm newborn infants.
Our blood contains 0.9% salt which helps to maintain the equilibrium in our nervous system. The light/salt sauna room generates the essence of the salt and light in our bodies. The sauna’s walls are covered in natural salt blocks. The light/salt sauna generates healing benefits in a relatively low temperature hence you will be able to sweat and still be comfortable. This type of sweat is different from normal sweat, as it is a result of a natural healing process which cleanses waste products and fats from the capillary vessels.
Steam & Dry Saunas
In each spa area you will find both a Steam and Dry Sauna. Each of these saunas hold their own value to improving our health and wellness. The dry sauna is the only bath in the world in which both dry and damp air is present at the same time. It is the body’s natural way to cleanse itself through perspiration. The body’s impurities are flushed away. Strong perspiration helps maintain clear, healthy skin and provides a rosy afterglow.
The steam sauna is similar to the dry sauna but with the added feature of thick steam that projects from the walls. Steam can be an important part of any sauna experience, whether it is used for relaxation or just to extract toxins from the body. It is estimated that about 30% of bodily toxins are eliminated through perspiration, which makes our saunas a great place to get healthy. Some key benefits of our saunas include muscle relaxation, stress relief, improved blood circulation, increased immune system function, the reduction or elimination of cellulite, skin rejuvenation, and detoxification.

Hot/Cold Soaking Tubs
CGI Holistic Fitness offers both Hot and Cold tubs. Alternating between different temperatures will strengthen your immune system, improve blood circulation and activate the excretion process for those with digestive issues. Start with taking a warm shower, and then immerse yourself in our cold bath alternating back and forth between the hot and cold tubs for one minute each.
A body scrub massage is a popular body treatment that is like a facial for the body. It’s available for women only at CGI Holistic Fitness & Spa. CGI’s body scrub exfoliates and hydrates your skin, leaving it smooth and soft. After the exfoliation process is complete, a water rinse-off will follow. An application of body oil or milk will then be applied to your body. You can expect to be draped with a towel during your scrub, so only the part being worked on will be exposed. CGI offers a Body Scrub Massage which combines the benefits of a body scrub followed by a 15 minute relaxing body massage.
