Having recently undergone six cycles of CoolSculpt® (an FDA-cleared fat freezing procedure) for the first time, I was on a mission to find out the best ways to speed-up recovery time. The fat reduction procedure itself is non-invasive but there are no guarantees. Most patients see up to 20-25% of fat loss from the areas they treat. One of the biggest downfalls of the treatment is the recovery time and how long it actually takes to see changes.
I did not realize that CoolSculpting® results actually take up to three months for any real progress to be noticeable and the fat loss keeps improving up to six months after the initial session.
After treatment, my skin had an overall numbing sensation and was sensitive to the...
As the owner of iSWEAT LODGE, with two locations in San Diego, there never seems to be enough time in the day to get it all done. In between meeting new clients and walking them through the process at iSWEAT LODGE, I’m also managing staff, promoting my business at local events and sharing my love of keto.
It’s been a full year of my keto life journey and I’m proud to say I’ve lost 35 pounds and continue to lose fat and gain muscle. I’ve tried many diets in the past and my weight has been up and down for years. It wasn’t until I discovered keto that my life has changed forever.
As I prepare to be certified as a keto coach, I’m an Independent Pruver for Pruvit and love learning new “keto hacks”. I want to share with you my...
There's nothing better than a woman going after her dream and running shit like a boss! The first time I visited iSweat Lodge, I was hooked. I knew I had to write a piece about Kat Pytka, its founder, because women supporting women, am I right?! We should always celebrate another's entrepreneurialism and drive.
A few weeks prior to meeting Kat and having my first session, a mutual friend suggested I check out iSweat Lodge, knowing I was working on a travel guide on the best spas & wellness centers in San Diego. I vaguely recalled biking past the Bird Rock location, but knew nothing about what they offered. In fact, I had never heard of an infrared body wrap. I was so bogged down with WriteLessBad clients and blog work that I didn...
One of the best ways to release toxins and get yourself back to feeling better than normal is through excessive sweating. At iSWEAT LODGE, you can achieve a sweat detox by slowly increasing your internal body temperature through an infrared heat body wrap. It’s gentle, easy (does not require exercise) and gives you maximum results in just one session.
Here are the top 5 signs that you should consider a sweat detox with an infrared heat body wrap:
1. LACK OF ENERGY
Is it hard to keep your eyes open, even with that second or third cup of coffee? Is your body constantly craving more sleep? By lowering toxin levels with a sweat detox, you will help maintain energy equilibrium.
As a health and wellness advocate who is always talking about the benefits of infrared heat therapy, Kat was curious to learn more about the Keto diet. She was nearing a mile-stone birthday, with a trip to Las Vegas around the corner, and she wanted to look and feel her best.
WHAT IS KETO?
Keto – or the ketogenic diet – is a low carb, high fat meal plan that enables the body to produce ketones in the liver to be used as energy. The idea is that you can lose weight by replacing the body’s typical go-to energy source "carbs" with fats. A long-term ketogenic diet can significantly reduce body weight and keep it off. Almost without exception, low-carb diets lead to more weight loss than the diets they are compared...

For many of those who are rehabilitating an injury, passive exerciseisn’t a trend, rather a gentle way to promote healing and speed-up the recoveryprocess. Passive exercise, also known as passive range of motion (ROM) exercises, refers to the range of motion and how far your joints and muscles can move in different directions with the help of either a person or machine.
Everyone can benefit from passive exercises, especially those recovering from injury, the elderly, people with physical disabilities and even stroke survivors with partial paralyzation. Passive exercise can help prevent muscle stiffness and treat spasticity.
