Infrared Body Wrap Frequently Asked Questions
What is Infrared?
Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Infrared is the band of light we cannot see, but can feel it in the form of heat. 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 work?
Fat loss and cellulite reduction
When we accumulate body fat, blood circulation is diminished and with less 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.
Your body will burn off those calories through the day. While the weight of water lost can be regained by re-hydration, the calories consumed will not be and the inches loss from Infrared treatment is permanent.
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 do I prepare for my Infrared Body Wrap treatment?
- Make sure that you drink plenty of water and eat a small meal 1-2 hours before your session.
- Be sure to bring long sweat pants, long sleeves sweat shirt and socks with you to wear during the treatment.
- Bring a bottle of water.
- We highly recommend to bring a change of clothes for afterwards.
How long is each treatment?
Each treatment is 50 minutes.
How often can I repeat the treatment?
You may be able to notice the difference after just one session. However for best results it is preferable to repeat it 1-3 times a week. Upon reaching the intended body shape, it is possible to revert to maintenance only schedule, which for most people, should be around 2 to 4 times a month.
Can I use the tanning bed and the Infrared body wrap on the same day?
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. It is not recommended – especially if you’re fair skinned and prone to burning. Of course tanning the previous or the day following treatment is perfectly fine.
