I am all about supporting small businesses and help spread the voice where I can. Especially when it’s a good friend’s idea becomes a reality, introducing Nimbus & Co.
Thanks to power couple Neil and Su, I made the galiant trip over to Bondi from Sydney’s CBD. Hey, I don’t mind the travel but i’m sure the local Bondi-ites are thrilled for the wellness studio. Bondi has always been a suburb where everyone looks amazing, more so in their activewear, healthy living and clean eating.
Nimbus & Co is a new health and wellness studio on 97 Bondi Road that uses a safe, infrared sauna technology that penetrates into tissue, muscles, and joints, increasing circulation and speeding up oxygen flow through the body. Infrared heat therapy can be an effective treatment for chronic pain, arthritis, and sports injuries.
Is this a new fad or does it really help? Yes yes, it’s an international hit and endorsed by global celebrities, health gurus and fitness media. Each 45-minute sweat session burns about 700 calories and aids in removing toxins.
“Depending on your needs, infrared saunas benefits can include weight loss, better skin, anti-ageing, immune boosting, pain relief and stress reduction. It is also a more comfortable experience,” says co-founder and qualified nutritionist Suzanne Tuttle.
My fact: traditional saunas heats the air and it does get hot and sometimes hard to breath in. Infrared sauna is a much gentler experience.
Their fact: Sunlighten saunas use Solocarbon ceramic heaters instead of red heat lamps, hot air and stream. They are considered the safest and most effective infrared heater available and produce virtually no EMF. The saunas emit far infrared heat through heaters located on the floor, front, back and side wall panels. Clinical tests show that it raises core temperature, lowers blood pressure and can aid in weight loss.
The health benefits:
- Detoxification – sweat out those terrible toxins in a safe environment.
- Anti-Aging & Skin Purification – Near infrared treatment stimulate collagen production to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin tone.
- Pain Relief – infrared heat penetrates tissue, joint and muscles to relieve + decrease pain.
- Relaxation – therapeutic heat that helps improve sleep and deep tissue sweat.
- Improved Circulation – by heating the muscles produces an increase in blood flow (mid infrared treatment)
- Lower Blood Pressure – as you sweat more the heart pumps faster, lowers blood pressure and helps its circulation
- Weight Loss – did you read my previous quote, 45-minutes burns about 700 calories.
Casual sweaters can buy a session for $42, weekly sweaters for $38 and full-time sweaters can have a weekly membership for $65. The studio opens 8am-8pm Monday to Friday and 10am-4pm on weekends.
The wellness centre also provides gentle Lymphatic drainage massage that helps the body eliminate toxins and improved blood flow. It also provides traditional remedial massage to unwind and destress.
Another of its services is organic body scrub infused with lemon, wild orange or geranium scents that smooths the skin and sloughs off dead skin cells.
