Forget the Sand Man, How about a Sand Bath?

This is not simply a new age treatment for those with more money than sense. The tribal families will also tell you that that desert sand has very powerful healing capabilities. Although many come to see the shifting sand dunes and beautiful sunsets, others come for the sand baths.

Last September, Morocco hosted the Global Spa and Wellness Summit where industry experts state that this economy expanded by more than 12.5 percent, generating about $500 billion dollars in revenue.

Moroccan desert tribes are not the only ones to detox through sand baths. The aboriginal people of Australia are also known to bury themselves in the sand to remove toxins and other illnesses. These indigenous people also say that the reason why so many people in the world find it necessary to use deodorants is because their bodies are filled with toxins that smell bad when they come out through the pores of the skin. Detoxifying the body through sand baths means you would smell good all the time, or at least until your next “bath” in the sand.

With more and more people signing up for their sand bath detox session, the former nomadic tribespeople are thriving as a result.

Sand baths might not be as well-known as other detox products or detox spa treatments, but it certainly does seem to be a trend of the future. Don’t knock it till you try it, many proclaim. Birds often take sand baths as do many other creatures, so perhaps it makes sense that this would work for us as well.
