Mavena Spa Therapy
Ed: I just went to Chicago to
a place called Mavena. It has been in Europe for about 10 years and has
been in the U.S. for about two. In
Chicago (Des Plaines, to be exact) it
is a "spa" that has baths and the non-harmful sun booths.
No medication is required, it's all natural, and it is covered and
backed by insurance companies. THE
MOST IMPORTANT THING: I was
clear in about a month.
has a lot of websites and here’s one in English: http://www.mavena.com.
is looking to franchise and my mom is setting up a satellite office here
in Maryland. I am looking in
to starting one in Texas, as I’m moving there in next few months.
Mavena spas are modeled after the kind of therapy you get at the Dead Sea.
The Dead Sea is 30% salt (as opposed to the ocean, which is 3%
salt). Someone discovered that
15% Dead Sea salt is as
effective as 30% and costs less. Because
I don’t want to fly to Israel at this time, I called my trip to Des
Plaines a mini-pilgrimage. I
stayed at a Homestead hotel,
which for a reasonable price had a kitchen and allowed my pets.
I went in December and January and told people I met there that I
had come for some sun and fun. They
thought I was nuts, of course, but I thought it was funny.
to say, I feel like a new person. My
confidence level has risen 5- million percent. I
still find it hard to believe: all
natural, no pills, creams or needles, insurance paid for most of it.
They treat every kind of psoriasis.
I think the web site has a list of their current locations.
Response: I suppose a
franchised spa experience like the Dead Sea was just a matter of time.
I must admit, I am shocked that insurance covered so much of it.
I checked out the web site and it appears Des Plaines is the only
location in the U.S. at this time, so the field (as they say) is wide open
for you and your Mom.
