I wonder what that fancy light is in the window?
Benefits of Far Infrared can be summarized as follow:
1) Increased blood circulation
Far-infrared heat therapy expands capillaries, which stimulates increased blood circulation and oxygenation. Improved blood circulation helps bring oxygen to the tissues and nerves, which promotes overall health. It also helps relieve arthritis, muscle pain and spasms, shoulder or joint stiffness and Raynaud’s syndrome.
Far-infrared heat therapy is excellent for detoxification. Scientists report that in the FIR treatment of clogged capillary vessels, heat expands the capillaries and then initiates the start of a process to dissolve hidden toxins. Far infrared promotes elimination of fats, chemicals, and toxins from the blood: poisons, carcinogenic heavy metals, toxic substances from food processing, lactic acid, free fatty acids, subcutaneous fat associated with aging and fatigue, excess sodium associated with hypertension and uric acid which causes pain. Furthermore, when sebaceous glands in the skin are activated by FIR heat therapy, accumulated cosmetics in pores can be eliminated through the skin (sweat and oil glands) rather than by the kidneys.
3) Improved metabolism
Far infrared stimulates enzyme activity and metabolism. Far infrared burns calories by raising the metabolism and body temperature. FIR heat therapy also breaks down cellulite – trapped water, fat and waste.
4) Improved immune system
Far-infrared heat therapy promotes the killing of many pathogenic (disease causing) bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. It also stimulates increased production of white blood cells (leukocytes) by the bone marrow and T-cells by the thymus.
5) Self-healing of injured tissue
Far-infrared heat therapy promotes rebuilding of injured tissue by having a positive effect on the fibroblasts (connective tissue cells necessary for the repair of injury). Furthermore, it increases growth of cells, DNA syntheses, and protein synthesis all necessary during tissue repair and regeneration. FIR is excellent for healing burns, scar tissue and skin problems.
6) Relaxation and stress reduction
Far infrared relieves nervous tension and relaxes muscle’s thereby helping the body make the most of its intended healing abilities. FIR heat therapy reduces soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms.
I wonder how it works and what do I have to bring?
You should bring a collar for your pup to be secured to the wash facility. A towel if you want to dry them (better than simply blowing the water off), and any medicated soap you might need. (You can go to the picture if you can make it work).
On the dial (from Stop) you have Tub Cleaner (to sanitize), Pet Shampoo (General tearless), Rinse (Just Water), Conditioner (like hair conditioner), two speeds of drying (use the long black hose), then oatmeal, which is medicated, Veterinary (flea and tick), and finally De-Skunk for smelly dogs. The STOP stops the water but not the timer, so to stop the card charging when finished push the green button.
Is this the only one?
I wonder what their hours are?
Both locations are open 24 hours a day 365 days a year. Doors never lock. When arriving in the evening, the lights will be out and a red glow will be apparent. But as soon as you open the door the lights will come on and the facility comes alive and will be ready for use.
Can I take a dump here or inside?
No, you can’t take a dump here or inside. But if you do, your owner is expected to pick it up. We have bags inside on the wall for accidents. On the selector there is a Tub Cleaners soap for washing out the tub before and after your wash to help sanitize your bathing experience.
I need groomed, my nails, my fur, and my ass.
Sorry, this is a simple wash facility, if you want groomed try Petco.
