The Infrared Body Wrap is a natural heat therapeutic treatment which uses Far Infrared Heat Energy (FIR) that penetrates twice as deep as other heat sources to target toxins and cellulite trapped in pockets below the surface of the skin. Using the body's natural cooling system, the deep heat treatment simulates metabolism and helps to reduce cellulite, burn calories, remove stored toxins, increase weight loss and help to contour one's body. Simultaneously, the deep penetrating heat will help relieve chronic pain, improve joint mobility and increase blood circulation. Unlike traditional body wraps, the Infrared Body Wrap does not use mud or liquid and does not even require you to remove your clothing.

The Benefits from Infrared Body Wrap includes:

  • Cellulite reduction and fat loss
  • Boost the immune system and increase metabolism
  • Decrease water clusters and improve the flow of bodily fluids
  • Detoxify the body by releasing tissue-bound toxins and wastes
  • Treatment of muscle spasms and joint stiffness
  • Treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Enhance blood flow
  • Menstrual pain relief

How does the Infrared Body Wrap works?

Fat loss and cellulite reduction

When we accumulate body fat, blood circulation becomes worse. Because of a lack of blood circulation, we cannot metabolize or burn body fat. In addition, very little heat is being circulated to that part of your body. This is what we call "cold spots." When we take away the heat from that area of your body and it cools, the fat then turns from subcutaneous fat into cellulite. Subcutaneous fat is very soft and easy to lose. Cellulite is almost like hard muscle that is hardened from lack of blood circulation.

The purpose of the Infrared Body Wrap Treatment is to apply heat to the body in order to get underneath the fat tissue and thin the blood to allow it to get into the areas where fat tissue exists. Bringing the blood back into the areas that have had restricted blood flow causes the metabolism rates to rise. The heat softens the fat tissue causing it to break up and be released into the blood stream in the form of calories to be burned up as energy.

Burn calories

Your body will burn off those calories through the day. While the weight of water lost can be regained by rehydration, the calories consumed will not be and the inches loss from Infrared treatment is permanent.

Increase metabolism

The heat produced by the Infrared Body Wrap Treatment is similar to that of a cardio or physical workout all while laying down for a period of 50 minutes. This infrared heat stimulates the metabolism and increases blood circulation just like it would with a workout session. It will also increase your heart rate and increase blood circulation. This increased circulation will also increase your Basic Metabolic Rate and by doing so consumes or burns calories.

Your metabolism will also be stimulated for at least 24 to 36 hours after using this treatment. This means that your body will be burning calories at a higher rate for the next several days after using one treatment.

How often can I repeat the treatment?

Can I use the tanning bed and the Infrared body wrap on the same day?

Due to the fact that both the tanning bed and the Infrared Body Wrap System give off infrared heat, it's quite possible to receive a burn or heat rash if doing both on the same day. Due to this fact, tanning and using the Infrared Body Wrap System on the same day is not recommended - especially if you're fair skinned and prone to burning. Of course tanning the previous or the next day is perfectly fine.

What is Infrared?

Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. We cannot see this band of light with the naked eye, but we can feel this type of light in the form of heat. Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Infrared rays heat your body without having to heat the air in-between, through a process called conversion.

The infrared is divided into 3 segments by wavelengths, among these segments, only far infrared penetrates organic substances such as the human body two to three inches so that the warming effect is very uniform.

How does the Infrared Body Wrap Relieves pain and injuries?

The Infrared Body Wrap helps with sprains, strains, arthritis, muscle spasm and other musculoskeletal ailments. The deep heat helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries.
