Yes, is a very subtle and safe form of therapy. As a general rule, if your physician has cleared you for exercise, then it is safe to use the Vibrosaun.
People taking blood thinners should be monitored by their physician throughout their program, as this treatment will naturally have a blood thinning effect as well.
Pregnant women, people with circulatory/heart or vascular disease, active cancer, infectious progressive diseases or those with pacemakers should not use the Vibrosaun.
Does the treatment have any side effects?
Treatments are safe and effective, but with the heavy toxin release that Vibrosaun stimulates, some may experience passing detox symptoms such as headache, fatigue or irritability, to name a few. Be sure to stay hydrated after you session to help alleviate detoxification effects, or what is clinically termed a “Healing Crisis.”
However, most people feel immediate positive side effects such as increased energy and a GREAT night’s sleep!
How do I prepare for a Vibrosaun session?
Prior to your appointment, ensure that you drink plenty of fluids (preferably filtered water or herbal tea) and have a light meal or snack about 1 hour before your session. Removing all make-up and personal care products just before your session will encourage the most effective detoxification through your skin – you don’t want to absorb any of the toxins from your skincare products.
You may wish to bring a comb and hair tie for longer hair. A selection of aromatherapy oils and towels are provided. You are welcome to bring your own relaxing CD to listen to while you are in the Vibrosaun unit.
Once you have had full instruction on what to do, you are left alone in complete privacy for your session.
It’s best not to plan a busy day after your Vibrosaun session to maximize the relaxing effects of this therapy.
What do I wear during the treatment?
Our Vibrosaun rooms are private, so most people enjoy the session without clothing. However, you may prefer to wear undergarments or workout attire if desired. You will sweat if you turn up the heat, so dress accordingly.
How long does a session last?
For most people, it’s recommended that you start with a 30 minute session and work your way up to 45 minutes after 2 or 3 treatments. If a person is fit and exercises regularly, they may choose to start at the 45 minute level.
Does Vibrosaun just work on problem areas?
The beauty of the Vibrosaun is that it helps repair the entire body, not just isolated injuries or chronic conditions. Vibrosaun does not heal the body directly, but rather it speeds up your body’s natural healing functions so it can heal itself as nature intended. Sickness and disease are NOT natural conditions of the human body. Regular sessions on the Vibrosaun, along with other positive dietary and lifestyle changes, will result in more energy, a clearer mind and relief of pain and illness.
How many sessions do I need to start feeling results?
Results vary for every person. Everyone, after their first session, feels relaxed and rejuvenated. For more specific conditions, such as arthritis or back pain, some people notice changes after only a few treatments. However, it normally takes 5 to 8 sessions to start noticing measurable improvements.
How many treatments should I consider to begin with?
We always recommend clients begin with our 3 session Introductory Package to insure Vibrosaun therapy is something they will enjoy. Typically, the 1st session takes a few minutes for you to settle in and learn how to control the heat and vibration settings. By the 2nd and 3rd visits, you will be very familiar with the Vibrosaun, so your sessions will be much more relaxing and productive.
Most people continue Vibrosaun therapy after the initial 3 sessions with a monthly membership (2 or 4 sessions per month). In general, the first 8 to 10 treatments are suggested within a 3 week period to accelerate the body into healing mode.
How long should I continue my treatments?
Most clients feel so many benefits from their Vibrosaun experience (both physical and emotional), that they choose to make Vibrosaun part of their commitment to a new healthier lifestyle.
This can be done with one of our membership plans (keeps your treatments on a regular schedule), or you can purchase a series of 10 sessions at a reduced rate and use them as needed.
Does Vibrosaun help with weight loss?
Yes, after regular Vibrosaun treatments most clients notice their clothes fitting better and the loss of inches around their waste and other areas. Many women notice that their cellulite is reduced, too!
The combination of heat and vibration stimulates the body into burning calories much like aerobic exercise. Of course it’s important to include a sensible diet and regular exercise as part of any weight loss regimen.
We offer a unique 30-Day Weight Loss Program. What makes our program successful for long term weight management is that we focus on health, not losing weight.
Can I do anything to enhance the benefits of my Vibrosaun treatments after I leave the spa?
Yes. Drink sufficient amounts of spring or mineral water and make positive dietary changes that we can assist you with. We also recommend adding a superfood supplement named E3Live into your diet. This will speed up recovery “from the inside” and provide your body with the much-needed vitamins, trace minerals, amino acids and antioxidants.
A large percentage of people who try E3Live have experienced outstanding results with increased energy, improved mental focus and pain relief, “the aches and pains just disappeared” is a very common response from new E3live users. E3Live is for sale at our Kure Organic Juice Bar in frozen take home bottles and we have information literature available as well.

Is Vibrosaun a new therapy?
In 1985, Laurie Hardie invented the Vibrosaun. He knew the only proven way to assist with weight loss and keep the body fit was exercise. However, he also concluded that a great number of people, either through a disability, obesity or poor health, were unable to participate in physical exercise. Because of this, he was presented with the challenge to design something that would as near as possible simulate the effects of exercise without subjecting the body to physical exertion or stress.
To ensure that he incorporated the most beneficial methods in the design, he sought advice from a group of highly professional and qualified people including a Medical Practitioner, Chiropractor, Osteopath and a Physiotherapist.
The results far exceeded his wildest expectations. While the Vibrosaun has proved itself invaluable in assisting with weight control, it has also proved to be extremely beneficial for the relief of a multitude of ailments including arthritis, back ache, sports injury, high blood pressure, stress, circulation problems, insomnia and more.
