Every now and again I love to treat myself to some good buzz worthy health and beauty treatments.
Lately, I’ve been experiencing some heavy bloating and stomach pains. No matter what I eat or how many crunches I do it’s as if my digestive system is allergic to anything I ingest.
After being inspired by some Instagram stories found on model/influencer Lori Harvey’s IG page, who also happens to be the step-daughter of the comedian/actor Steve Harvey, I was ‘put on game’.
I also remember seeing this technique on Jordyn Woods.
Its called the ‘Master Tox’.
The Master Tox is known to be a drainage method that helps improve health and free flowing of the lymphatic system.
What exactly is the ‘lymphatic’ system? I’m glad you asked.
The lymphatic system helps defend the body against illness-causing germs, bacteria, viruses and fungi. The system builds immunity by making special white blood cells (called lymphocytes) that produce antibodies which are responsible for immune responses that defend the body against disease. (unitypoint.org).
I was so impressed by the results on other women I had to go through the process myself.
This past weekend I happened to be in Los Angeles, CA visiting family and I knew I had to try this trend that is hyped by celebs.
I made an appointment at the ‘Tox LA” .
As soon as I walked in I was greeted by a nice young lady who took my temperature (thanks Covid) and had me fill out some paper work.
Once cleared, I was greeted by a lovely therapist who took me to the back into a room.
I was placed on a comfortable massage table covered in a black towel.
It started with a full body massage using movements moves fluid toward lymph nodes in the body.
A suction machine was then used on my legs to help tone and stimulate blood flow.
At the end of my session I was given a dry brush and detox patches.
They suggest not eating a heavy meal and to drink tons of water to help with the bodies process of drainage.
Overall, I loved the entire process. It really relaxed me before my flight and the immediate results were amazing.
As far as the costs, these types of massages range from $175-$399/session depending on which massage session you get.
Take a look at the results:
