1. Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy can support strong immune systems and boost white blood cells, improve consistent sleep cycles and support healthy skin, among other wellness benefits. Cryotherapy has expanded beyond injury recovery for athletes, finding a home in spas thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties and skin rejuvenation benefits. 

2. IV Therapy

IV therapy gives the immune system a jumpstart of nutrients without losing any of them as they break down in the body. IV infusions are used to deliver vitamins and minerals into the bloodstream without obstacles in the way. A hygienic drip IV system runs through a tube attached to a needle that enters the bloodstream. It's touted as the fastest way to deliver nutrients, since it bypasses the digestive system and goes directly into the organs, resulting in a high absorption rate. 

3. Infrared Sauna

Among other spa and wellness benefits, saunas can help create healthier-looking cells. Infrared saunas work by producing heat, which in turn stimulates the body to activate certain cellular functions like ramping up white blood cell count, increasing circulation and flushing out toxins, triggering the immune system to kick in and eliminate any cells that may have been undetected otherwise.
