When we often hear about “alternative” healing methods, many people are skeptical on their effectiveness on helping the body. Turns out, alternative methods may not be a bunch of hooey after all. Soul 7 in Toronto is one of those calm, meditative healing spas you can guarantee leaving with a calm sense of self and mind.
What is Soul 7 Frequency Spa?
Soul 7 is a Frequency Spa, a new evolution of the traditional spa that integrates Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field frequency technology (PEMF) to detox, cleanse, reduce stress, boost energy and your immune system, enhances focus, productivity, and sleep, all designed for optimal self-care. It was founded by former lawyer, Bob Berman, who was inspired to create the Centre after losing his wife to cancer. Throughout that struggle, he explored many alternative-healing methods that took him on a journey around the world in search of the ideal blend of healing technologies.
“To heal naturally, we need to balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic energies of our nervous system,” says Berman. “It is all about energy flow the body, so it can heal itself. One can achieve that Flow State in multiple ways. Our Mindful Healing Technologies help that process.”
What is Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF)?
Soul 7 uses what they call “Mindfulness Technologies” that are designed to nourish your mind, body & soul. They work synergistically to balance the nervous system, boost the immune system and transform one’s state of mind. Each of the treatments at Soul 7 uses PEMF, (Health Canada approved) which helps to stimulate healthy cells.
PEMFs work to help:
· Reduce pain, inflammation, the effects of stress on the body, and platelet adhesion.
· Improve energy, circulation, blood and tissue oxygenation, sleep quality, blood pressure and cholesterol levels, the uptake of nutrients, cellular detoxification and the ability to regenerate cells.
· Balance the immune system and stimulate RNA and DNA.
· Accelerate repair of bone and soft tissue.
· Relax muscles.
How do you feel after a treatment?
I recently had the opportunity to test out one of the four main treatments (see below for what they offer) called the Stress Relief. This treatment was a combination of two 30-minute parts. The first involved lying on a bed while listening to some unique, space age-y sounds. The second part involved flashing light therapy while getting massaged by a large jade roller that gently moves up and down your back to help stretch out your body.
The first session takes a few minutes to get used to. Even though you’re just lying there, you can’t help but wonder how these space-like sounds are helping. You don’t feel anything pulsating, but something is happening. You are forced to relax, close your eyes and clear your mind, which is the point. The second part of the Stress Relief treatment was my favourite because the feeling of the jade roller going up and down the back part of my body was pure heaven.
Don’t think of it as a full-on massage. However, because my back was sore, I could feel the relief I was getting as this roller glided from top to bottom. The jade roller encourages your body to stretch and regain its natural form.
Once I was done, I felt relaxed. Later on, in the afternoon, I felt very fatigued and fell into a hard nap. That evening, I actually had the best sleep. I realized that the treatement allowed my body to decompress and destress thereby allowing me to get some much-needed rest.
Studies have shown that vibrations stimulate the nervous systems, which control brain and muscular function. When sound and PEMF are synchronized they cause the body to focus, which clears the mind and naturally relieves tension.
