Samantha Albano is the founder of Purify: An Urban Sweat Lodge. As a D2 volleyball athlete at Merrimack College, Samantha was driven to find a solution to the aches and pains that came with throwing her body around the court. She was studying business and pursuing entrepreneurship, and was also very passionate about health, wellness, and holistic healing. After extensive research, Sam opened her own business to promote healthy living and healing through the unique benefits of Far-Infrared. Sam enjoys creating content for the Purify blog and social accounts and taking care of her Purifiers!
Sandy, her mother, was the perfect partner as she used to own a cosmetic studio with her mother, is a director of a nonprofit, and a wife/mother of three. Purify is a spa-like space that offers a relaxing environment for patrons to take time out from everyday stresses, detox, ease joint pain, burn calories, and more!
We went Instagram live while at Purify with Justin Bieber. We chatted about detoxing with far infrared heat, the benefits, + what a session is like here!
We have already been exposed to 127 different synthetic chemicals today. All before even leaving the house! Most of our everyday go-to products such as shampoo, lotions, soaps, deodorants, toilet paper, laundry detergent, + makeup, to name a few, have numerous highly toxic chemicals, including mercury, aluminum, lead cadmium, etc. Watch the video to learn more.
Sweat now + glow later!
The combination of light and heat in a far infrared Purify session has powerful healing effects. Sweat out the heavy metals, toxins, and pathogens that have accumulated over time.
The skin is the body’s largest organ, + sweating is a highly effective means of eliminating toxins. In addition, research indicates that far infrared body wrap sauna use promotes the elimination of various environmental toxins, including hormone-disrupting BPA, pesticides, + heavy metals.
We will set you up, and for 50- minutes, it's all about you! You may sleep, watch TV or listen to music. It's your time to unwind and purify yourself.
"One of the most relaxing things to do in Sarasota FL! Each session gets easier if you decide to go regularly. But, if not it's still a really nice experience. You can watch Netflix, Hulu, or listen to calming music while you sweat. Sam is so friendly and will be happy to make sure you are comfortable the whole time! This place is a must!"
Improves blood circulation + oxygenation. When body temperature rises in a Purify session, blood vessels dilate, + blood flow increases. Increased blood circulation enhances nutrient + oxygen delivery to tissues and organs, promotes their optimal function + regeneration.
Promotes weight loss.
Using a far infrared Purify wrap lowers blood pressure while simultaneously raising heart rate; these effects mimic cardiovascular exercise + may even help you with weight loss!
Promotes younger, healthier-looking skin.
A far infrared session is associated with skin hydration + complexion improvements. It also enhances collagen production in the skin, minimizing the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles.
The benefits range from muscle to mind. Being immersed in cold water stimulates leukocytes, the white blood cells that help fight off sicknesses. It also causes the lymphatic system to contract, forcing fluid through the lymph nodes. This process aids in detoxing the body and strengthening your immune system.
