Can detox at a spa be enjoyable?

The Farm at San Benito has the best detox program I have seen. It is so thorough – and so comfortable. Now I understand why I keep running into people here who are repeat visitors. One woman quit smoking the first time, lost weight the second time, and now she comes just to stay on track, since she is a high powered executive from Hong Kong who lives a pretty fast-paced life.
So much here is about detoxification, from the food on down to the colemas, the colonics, the yoga breathing, the meditation, the spa treatments, etc. I had a two-hour salt scrub that was really a massage with salt and coconut oil. It even included my face, which is pretty unusual…but all of my skin glowed afterward. I also tried what is called the Moxa Ventoza, which is done with six glasses that are used as suction on your back. I had read about this before but never experienced it. After the therapist finished my 30-minute suction session, I asked her to explain to me exactly what she did (couldn’t see what was happening on my back). I’ll give you the details tomorrow.
