Hi Megs: I signed up for the spa raffle the first day of our cruise and won a 1/2 price Ionithermie Algae Detox. Glad I didn't pay full price, as I wasn't really impressed. I lost 5 inches (water weight, I'm sure) and was told I'd lose more with each consecutive treatment. No thanks, been there, don't that. I'd opt out for a massage or facial over the algae detox treatment any day, but that's just my opinion.
Hi Megs: the algae is in form of a gel spread on legs, stomach and back, then you're covered with some type of wrap/sheet and lay cocooned like that for approximately 20 minutes. I forgot to mention the therapist places a few electrodes to run low current to the muscles. Like I said, been there, done that, mostly likely won't try it again.
