Top tips for an effective detox

Brought to you by The Spa at The Address Montogomerie Dubai

In pursuit of a healthier you and a revitalized body, a detox to flush out toxins along with negative energy has become part of many peoples lifestyle. As part of that, reviewing your diet to ensure what you’re putting into your body is wholesome and clean, is a necessary part of the detoxing process.

Eliminating dairy, carbohydrates and red meat are all essential steps to cleaning out your digestive system and adding an abundance of fresh, preferably organic, fruit and vegetables will ensure a high dose of vitamins and minerals.

We all know water is the key to a healthy digestive system but many of us forget to sip regularly on H2O on a daily basis; we recommend drinking up to 2 litres of water per day to help revitalize and energize.

But a detox isn’t all about what you put into your body; engaging in physical activity is just as important in revitalizing your physical and mental outlook. We don’t believe in going too hard, but instead, recommend maintaining a consistently active lifestyle. Whether it’s 30 minutes of walking or running, an exercise class like Yoga or Pilates or swimming in a beautiful outdoor pool, keeping active is important.

And let’s not forget one of the most important, and luxurious part of a detox; the spa visit. Whether for massages, wraps or facials, spa treatments help the lymphatic system drain and clear the toxins, leading to brighter, healthier skin and a relaxed and refreshed state of mind. There are a number of different massage options available which all offer different benefits, however a Balinese Massage will provide a variety of massage techniques, including gentle stretching, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and Qi energy around the body, which in turn helps you to relax, increases your circulation and leaves you feeling spiritually renewed.

At The Spa at The Address Montgomerie Dubai, we would recommend the Detox Marine Algae Wrap which uses various forms of marine algae to target and remove the toxins in your body. The session begins with an exotic bamboo scrub to exfoliate your skin and prepare it for treatment. A detox cocktail is mixed based on your needs and applied throughout the body, infusing it with elements to boost your body’s own efforts to clean and detoxify. A warm cocoon helps the seaweed’s rich array of minerals, vitamins and enzymes penetrate your pores and nourish your skin. You can then finish with a Balinese massage to ensure you get maximum detox benefits.
