TNT's INFRARED SAUNA THERAPY:

Although more and more people are learning firsthand about the fabulous benefits of infrared sauna or heat therapy, many others still possess very little knowledge of this important service.. The following information has been compiled to help spread the good news with the hope of placing more people on the path to greater health, relaxation and happiness.
Using an infrared sauna can help strengthen the body’s immune system by stimulating increased production of white blood cells by the bone marrow and killer T-cells by the thymus. Infrared rays improve blood circulation, stimulate endorphins, lower lactic acid, kill certain bacteria and parasites, and burn calories. Proponents of hypothermia, also known as fever therapy, maintain that using far infrared energy to therapeutically induce higher body temperatures helps fight infections and even cancer. Their argument is supported by the human body itself, which radiates infrared energy for the benefits of warmth and tissue repair.

Infrared saunas are recognized by health practitioners worldwide as perhaps the most effective method of removing both chemical and heavy metal toxins from the body. Infrared saunas are thought to be 7 times more effective at detoxifying heavy metals such as mercury, aluminum, and other environmental toxins than conventional heat or steam saunas. For many chronically ill patients as well as people who are well and wish to stay that way by reducing their toxic burden, the infrared sauna is the detox method of choice. Studies also indicate that benefits of infrared sauna use include: muscle relaxation; stress, tension and headache relief; reduction and removal of body toxins; increased cardiovascular strength; increased blood circulation; strengthened immune system; improved lung function, and refreshed, moisturized skin.

A good example of infrared heat is the light produced by the sun. This is the heat you feel penetrate your skin when you stand in the sun and miss when you walk into the shade. It has nothing to do with ultraviolet light, which can damage your skin. When people do not receive adequate amounts of infrared heat, they often can become ill or depressed. Infrared heat can penetrate into the skin about an inch and a half to two inches deep and can have therapeutic benefits, such as helping to dissolve fat deposits under the skin. Since toxins may be stored in the fat, the deep penetrating heat of a far infrared sauna can help eliminate them, especially toxins such as heavy metals and acidic compounds.
The radiant heat of a infrared sauna is efficient because it warms the sauna bather directly. The body absorbs as much as 93 percent of the heat, causing perspiration and producing a vast array of health benefits.
Infrared saunas can help clear cellulite, the gel-like lumps of fat, water and debris trapped in pockets beneath the skin. European beauty specialists routinely incorporate daily infrared sauna baths in programs to reduce cellulite.
Infrared radiant heat provides all the healthy benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.

TNT’S INFRARED SAUNA: Sunlighten 
Only Sunlighten saunas are medical-grade, clinically backed and proven 95-99% effective. This is why Sunlighten is used and recommended by more health experts and consumers over any other sauna brand.  

HOW TO USE:
You will need to be scheduled to use our Infrared Sauna. Appointments are booked for one hour which allows you to shower once you finish with your sauna treatment. The sauna will be set for 37 minutes - this gives you time to undress and still have a 30 minute session. The most beneficial temperature for the sauna is between 120 to 135. The perfect benefit is to warm up your body as the sauna warms up. So you should enter the sauna when it reaches 110 degrees. Our team will have the sauna on for you before you appointment time, allowing you to undress immediately and enter. The sauna will turn off automatically at the end of the 37 cycle. For more information or to schedule your sauna sessions please see our front desk.

WHAT IS Microcurrent Facial?
 From TNT's Aesthetician, Sandy Bock
A  microcurrent facial  is often referred to as a “natural” facelift. “This safe and painless facial helps erase fine lines and wrinkles, while firming your skin and defining your features. It improves muscle tone, reduces puffiness, increases cellular activity, and tightens pores. The overall result is a healthier and younger looking skin, no matter your age,” says to  Joanna Vargas , founder of Joanna Vargas Salon in New York City.
Microcurrent technology has been around since the 1800’s as a treatment for damaged tissues and muscles. But when a physician of a Bell’s palsy patient noticed that the face of his patients appeared much smoother and younger looking after receiving microcurrent therapy, one of the world’s first high-tech aesthetic treatments was born.
A microcurrent facial emits extremely low-voltage electrical currents (hence ‘micro’ current), which mirror your own body’s electrical currents, on a cellular level to repair damaged skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The intensity is so slight that it would take one million microcurrent machines to light a 40-watt light bulb. This treatment is often referred to as “facial toning” because it’s like a workout for your face, whereby skin cells are broken down and then grow back stronger, the same way your muscles do after lifting weights. “It works simultaneously to repair a product collagen in the dermis, the deepest layer of your skin, while gently erasing signs of aging in the epidermis, the top layer of your skin. According to studies, a microcurrent facial can increase collagen production up to 14%, elastin increases 48% and blood circulation goes up 38%,” explains Vargas.

WHO IS Microcurrent Facial FOR? microcurrent facial  is ideal for anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin, whether they are more focused on an anti-aging or preventative treatment because it covers all the bases. It is safe and effective on all skin types and skin colors.
Pregnant women and people with any kind of heart condition should avoid this treatment. As always, discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities with your cosmetic doctor or aesthetician before starting a treatment.

HOW IS Microcurrent Facial DONE? “The  microcurrent facial  uses two hand held prongs that deliver precise dosages of energy to the skin. As the aesthetician methodically moves the prongs around your face, you may feel a slight tingling sensation, but most say it’s surprisingly relaxing. Of course you can expect all the other pleasures of a classic facial incorporated into the  microcurrent facial , such as cleansing, exfoliating, moisturizing and facial massage.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE? 60 to 90 minutes
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF Microcurrent Facial? There is no downtime and you can immediately go about your day…glowing like you’ve never glowed before. If you’ve had the treatment as part of a  Classic European Facial  or a  medical facial , you may notice some redness, but nothing that makeup can’t hide.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF Microcurrent Facial? “You see results within minutes of getting the treatment—that’s the fun part,” says Vargas. After your first treatment, you’ll have a firmer, glowing, more uplifted you. Your skin will appear tightened and hydrated. Your jaw line will be more defined, your cheekbones more pronounced, and your eyes will look younger and refreshed. However, the initial results are rather fleeting and vanish in a week or two.
RECOMMENDED COURSE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS? Results are cumulative, so after a series of sessions, the improvements are many and longer lasting. For sustained results, the recommended course of treatment is series of 10 to 15 treatments within the first 6 weeks, followed by a 3-month maintenance schedule.
WHO SHOULD ADMINISTER THIS TREATMENT? Go to a board certified dermatologist or licensed aesthetician who specializes in micro current therapy. “An aesthetician has to be licensed in the state they are practicing in. There are several different schools you can attend, but ultimately you have to pass a state administered written and practical exam to get your license,” explains Aesthetician  Jillian Wright , owner of Jillian Wright Clinical Skin Spa in New York City.
Because the immediate results are so apparent,  microcurrent facials  are a must right before that big event where you want to look your best. Celebrity aesthetician  Tracie Martyn  has appropriately dubbed her signature microcurrent treatment the “Red Carpet Facial.”
Kate Winslet, Madonna, and Oprah Winfrey are all fans of microcurrent facials. Style icon Diane von Furstenburg admittedly books this treatment once a week.
The market for at-home microcurrent devices has begun to evolve, but they’re still no match for professional grade machines. Still, the investment is great to use as a maintenance tool in between your spa sessions, and it works wonders on minor under-eye puffiness.

February's Client Spotlight - Diane Davis
This month’s TNT testimonial is with Diane Davis. We are excited not only to share her success story but also to announce that Diane has joined our TNT team as our new clinic coordinator.  
Diane has lived most of her life in New Jersey, but in April of last year moved to The Villages to be closer to her mom. Over the years Diane has suffered with stomach issues.  In 1998, Diane had her gallbladder removed and since that time she has been suffering with IBS (Irritable Bowl Syndrome).  

“IBS was debilitating” says Diane, “no matter where I was going the first thing I would have to do when I got to my destination was find where the bathroom was. My doctor would tell me to stay away from fatty foods. Yet I was eating just salads and still I would be running to the bathroom. I knew there had to be more than just staying away from certain foods. I would go to the grocery store and break down because I just didn’t know what to buy.”

“I couldn’t handle it any more so I goggled nutrition and found TNT. I made the phone call and spoke with Bre who gave me information on TNT and what I could expect if I decided to come in,” smiles Diane.

Diane decided to give us a try and came in for her Metabolic Evaluation and blood work. Once the results were in she had a one-to-one appointment with
 Lori Esarey, APRN. The results of Diane’s testing showed she had a leaky gut. She was allergic to potatoes, rice, corn, soy, yeast, vinegar, and more.  “I knew I was sick,” says Diane, “but I didn’t know how sick.” Diane made the decision to commit to the 6-month TNT Phase I Lifestyle Transformation program.

“I started working with TNT’s Health Coach, who taught me what I could and could not eat. There were times I wanted to quit but she would not let me,” smiles Diane. “She helped me shop for what foods are right for my body, and even helped me know what to order when I would go out to eat.”  By her second month on the program, Diane was feeling better. Then came month three and Diane started feeling bad again. “Lori explained to me on one of my visits with her that I was feeling bad because my body was detoxing. She encouraged me to stay the course and after detoxing I started feeling better and better.”

“The classes at TNT were a huge help to me. The Diabetes class, which I wasn’t even sure why I was taking it at the time, turned out to be the class I got the most out of,” says Diane, “It taught me the dangers of sugar and what happens to my body when I consume it,” says Diane.

“The hardest part of this journey was making the initial phone call. Once I made the decision to come in, the team at TNT was there with me every step of the way.” Diane’s life has changed for the better, and now that she is a new team member at TNT she will be able to share her success story with others who are brave enough to make that first call.
