I never thought I’d say this but today Tunbridge Wells is a world centre of cutting edge technology. Yes, you heard me; that’s Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
It seems the picturesque town is the first place on Earth to offer LED spas where people wishing to lose weight can enter these Alien-like pods and be bathed in monochromatic light from wavelengths of between 625-980 nm.
The light triggers “intense physical stimulation” which sounds rather like spasms and vomiting to me and suddenly it seems clear how the weight is lost.
A single session will see you shed from 1-3lbs but with the deluxe package of 24 sessions over 14 weeks you could be anywhere between two and four stone lighter. I’m a little suspicious of this treatment, which is essentially being irradiated, but I can see the appeal.
LED spas can also be used to reduce stress, improve circulation, detoxify your body, relieve pain, improve clarity of thought or just give you an emotional lift and from £35 a pop, I’d give it a whirl if I woke up in Kent with a steaming hangover.
