Our Advanced Detoxification Services in VA are designed for those that have experience with detoxification looking for a boost to their natural health care regimen. All of our Advanced Detoxification Services are centered around our Steamy Wonder canopies and are classified as steam detox treatments or our infrared dry sauna to combine heat with healing remedies.
Our bodies often become mineral-deficient over time and can lead to increased aging and oxidation, hormonal imbalances, sickness, and fatigue. Our mineral sea salt scrubs provide mineral support to our bodies to help assist the body in healing. We have a collection of minerals that are applied to exfoliate the skin, we then place you in a steam canopy and as your pores open your body absorbs the minerals through your pores. As you sweat you excrete toxins all while absorbing mineral salt benefits. Below is a list of the mineral salts that we have available at our center.
Alaea is Our Traditional Hawaiian Red Clay Sea Salt Blend
Red Alaea is naturally occurring, a mineral-rich, Hawaiian volcanic clay that gives our salt a beautiful and unique color and sheen imparted by its high iron content.
Alaea salt has long been prized by native Hawaiians for its legendary health benefits and extra nutrition. It has had a significant role in Hawaiian healing rituals, medicinal purposes, and formally in the purification ceremony called hi’uwai. There is reported to be over 80 trace minerals in this salt, all of which are minerals found naturally in sea water. Hawaiian volcanic clay called “‘alae” is added to this salt to enhance it with iron-oxide which gives the salt its extraordinary red color.
Pink Himalayan Sea Salt
Pink Himalayan salt is hand-harvested and minimally processed. It contains 84 minerals and trace elements that are highly beneficial for the body including magnesium, calcium, copper, potassium, and iron. Pink Himalayan salt provides essential minerals, trace elements, balances electrolytes, supports proper nutrient absorption, eliminates toxins, balances the body’s pH, normalizes blood pressure, and increases circulation as well as blood flow within the body.
Hiwa Kai Black Sea Salt
This Hawaiian Sea Salt has a stunning black color and silky texture. Solar-evaporated Pacific sea salt is combined with activated charcoal, complementing the natural salt flavor and adding numerous health benefits to the salt including heavy metal chelation, stimulation of the lymphatic system, and reduction of edema.
Our Body Wraps are made with herbal linens that have been soaked in various solutions. Our basic body wrap is soaked in Bentonite Clay. Bentonite has many healing properties including the ability to chelate heavy metals from the system, also known as heavy metal detoxification. Combined with heat from our steam or infrared dry sauna, the Bentonite Body Wrap detoxifies and cleanses the body in a gentle, noninvasive manner.
Our Body Wraps can be upgraded to include other healing benefits. Our Castor Oil Body Wrap is loaded with Omega essential fatty acids and is an excellent anti-inflammatory tool. The Aloe Vera Wrap is helpful in relieving inflammation as well as additional cooling benefits for both the skin and the organs. Herbal wraps for this natural detoxification are custom tailored to suit any need. All of our herbs are taken from our tea bar, so please check for current tea bar samplings. All body wraps in the Detox Center can be wet or dry.
Body Wraps are a great way to naturally, safely, and effectively cleanse and detox the body. At our Natural Health Detox Center, we use compressive bandages that have been soaked in various solutions and then lay our patients in the steamer. The healing and detoxification benefits of each wrap are dependent on the solution that the bandages are soaked in; each body wrap type has its own unique benefits.
Please see below for a breakdown.
Patients are wrapped using herbal linens soaked in Bentonite Clay. Bentonite has many healing benefits including heavy metal chelation, which is why we use this in our treatments. Patients are wrapped and left to relax in a steamer for half an hour. The steam opens the body’s pores while the Bentonite draws out impurities stored deeply inside of the cells. Patients are measured before and after the detox session to track inches lost.
Castor Oil Wrap
Castor Oil is filled with Omegas 3, 6, 9, and even 12 and has been used to work with patients’ inflammation, digestive problems, migraines, menstrual pains, and more. We couple this detoxification service with a steam treatment and herbal linen wrap to not only draw out impurities and quicken detoxification, but also to firm and tone the skin. This excellent detoxification is sure to allow your body to prosper in its efforts to restore health.
Aloe Vera Wrap
Aloe Vera has primarily been used to help inflammation, coupled with an herbal linen body wrap the results are exquisite especially when suffering from sunburns, skin irritations, or just needing to cool the body down after a long training session. Aloe Vera is safe, gentle, and effective in healing the skin from misuse.
Some patients may lose an average 5-15 inches in one session. Results may vary. A Complimentary Wellness Exam performed by our Naturopath may be required in order to participate in a steam detoxification treatment. Basic Steam treatments are able to be upgraded to add any Body Wrap service. Packages are available to mix-and-match Body Wrap services.
* May be uncomfortable due to heat.
At our in house essential wellness center, we use the SteamyWonder apparatus to facilitate steam treatments in our Natural Health Detox Center. The patient lies down on a table and a steam canopy is raised over top of them. If desired, the patient has his or her head out of the steam canopy; otherwise they may be fully immersed in the canopy during the detoxification treatment.
Steam therapy has been used for centuries by the Romans and Greeks to facilitate healing in the body. Some of the health benefits of steam are below.

The Dead Sea Mud has over 70 minerals including selenium, potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus.
