Of the many questions we’re asked here at driphouse®, the most common is ironically among the most basic:  What exactly is dripping?  In short, a “drip session” is a natural form of detoxification utilizing FAR-infrared technology to safely wrap and heat the body.  Sessions last between 30 and 60 minutes, in which time the body typically burns between 600 and 1,200 calories.  Because it’s a more gentle and gradual form of heat generation, the body is able to sustain it for longer periods of time.

What is Sweat Therapy?

As research has continued to demonstrate, there are a wide range of health benefits associated with intense sweating.  Some of the most beneficial include:

  • Weight loss and fat metabolism
  • Deeper, more consistent sleep patterns
  • A reduction in stress and anxiety
  • Natural detoxification
  • Increased blood flow and cardiovascular conditioning
  • Reduced aches and muscle pains

During a drip session, the individual is wrapped in FAR-infrared blankets that are completely safe.  And keep in mind, these are not your run-of-the-mill heated blankets.  FAR-infrared is an innovative and extensively-researched way to generate sustained heat, and all sessions are closely monitored to ensure safety and comfort.

What Can I Expect from My Sweating Session?

Most people equate dripping to the feeling one would experience after an intense workout or long run.  Because of the unique nature of the heat source, you’re essentially being warmed from the inside out.  This helps encourage the natural removal of stored toxins, and is wonderful for improving blood flow, metabolizing fat, and soothing tensions within the muscles.  Many who drip report sleeping better, feeling more energized and less stressed.
