DETOXIFIES * DISSOLVES FAT * PAIN RELIEF * WEIGHT LOSS
HOW DOES BODY WRAP WORK?
FAR INFRARED HEAT COMPLETELY SAFE & NATURAL It is 5-15 micron wavelength is actually the light that we can’t see, but can feel as a heat. It is the same type of heat that body produces naturally to warm itself, and more than half of the sun’s heat is infrared as well, so it is completely safe & natural.
- DETOXIFIES & REDUCES FAT FAR INFRARED HEAT PENETRATES OUR BODIES RATHER THAN ONLY HEATING THE SKIN. During a body wrap session, far infrared heat penetrates 1-2 inches, heating areas where fats and toxins have been stored without generating uncomfortable heat on the surface of the skin. As many fats and toxins are soluble at temperatures of just over 100 degrees, these fats and toxins, including cholesterol, heavy metals and acids, can be dissolved and excreted through our sweat or kidneys. In recent clinical research, approximately 15% of the sweat was composed of these undesirable fats and toxins in an infrared session, compared to 3-5% with normal exercise. The difference can be attributed to the fat and toxins that were dissolved through the application of infrared heat and excreted as part of the sweat. Body Wrap infrared heat therapy can be effective in removing fats, cholesterol, ammonia, sulfuric acid, nicotine, alcohol, mercury and aluminum. These can be dissolved and removed through sweating and also through normal bodily elimination.
PAIN RELIEF Many of us have used a heating pad to soothe pain and heat has been well documented in the treatment of pain relief. The Body wrap’s penetrating infrared heat can result in immediate therapeutic benefit through increased blood flow and tissue oxygenation and may also act directly on irritated nerve endings. Clinical research has established that an infrared treatment session can increase blood flow from 5-7 quarts/minute to as much as 13 quarts/minute. A 2008 study found that chronic pain patients experienced a 70% reduction in pain levels after the first infrared therapy session.
WEIGHT LOSS Most people will produce substantial amounts of sweat during a 50 minute body wrap weight loss session. While there can be a short term loss of weight due to this sweating, most of this weight is immediately regained with re-hydration. But the fats and toxins in the sweat, as much as 15% of the sweat content, are not replaced.
Clinical research has also established that sweating is an energy-intensive process. Extensive sweating can speed up the metabolism, resulting in dramatically increased caloric consumption. Simply put, sweating burns calories, often at very high rates. The metabolism can remain elevated for several hours after a session. So a body wrap session can burn calories both during a session and for some time afterward. REPEATED BODY WRAP SESSIONS CAN RESULT IN WEIGHT LOSS THROUGH THE COMBINATION OF BURNING CALORIES AND REMOVING FATS AND TOXINS.
OTHER BENEFITS Recent clinical observations and studies have produced a large body of observations on the potential beneficial effects of infrared therapy in a broad range of disorders as well as promoting well-being, including:
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Blood pressure
- Anti-aging effects on the skin and other tissues
- Cardiovascular health
- Acute and chronic soft tissue injuries and repair
ADVISEMENTS & CONTRAINDICATIONS
Any of the below described contraindications will require you to use discretion for your own well being. Severe medical conditions will require a note of authorization from your doctor prior to the use of the Infra slim air pressure massage.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)Presence of any pain or numbness
Acute infection of the affected limbCardiac Heart Failure (CHF)
Any instance where increase venous and lymphatic return is undesirable.
Medications – Diuretics, barbiturates and beta‐blockers may impair the body’s natural heat loss mechanisms. Anticholinergics such as amitryptaline may inhibit sweating and can predispose individuals to heat rash or to a lesser extent heat stroke. Some over‐the‐counter drugs, such as antihistamines, may also cause the body to be more prone to heat stroke.
Pregnancy/Breast Feeding – Pregnant or breast feeding do not use the infra slim body wrap with or without air pressure massage. A detoxification process will produce the expelled toxins into your breast milk.
Menstruation – Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase their menstrual flow.
Elderly – The body must be able to activate its natural cooling processes in order to maintain core body temperature. As we mature, our bodies naturally lose this capability. Guests over the age of 70 will be permitted for infra slim air pressure massage use, however, at a lower temperature.
Cardiovascular Conditions – Individuals with cardiovascular conditions or problems (hypertension/hypo tension), congestive heart failure, impaired coronary circulation or those who are taking medications which might affect blood pressure should exercise caution when exposed to prolonged heat. Heat stress increases cardiac output and blood flow in an effort to transfer internal body heat to the outside environment via the skin (perspiration) and respiratory system. This takes place primarily due to major changes in the heart rate, which has the potential to increase by thirty (30) beats per minute for each degree increase in core body temperature.
Alcohol/Alcohol Abuse – Contrary to popular believe, it is not advisable to attempt to “sweat out” a hangover. Alcohol intoxication decreases a person’s judgment; therefore, he/she may not realize when the body has a negative reaction to high heat. Alcohol also increases the heart rate, which may be further increased by heat stress. Guests who appear intoxicated or inform us of alcohol consumption prior to use of the infra slim air pressure massage will forfeit their scheduled appointment and no refund or credit will be issued.
Reduced Ability to Sweat or Perspire Associated With – Multiple Sclerosis, Central Nervous System Tumors and Diabetes with Neuropathy are conditions that are associated with impaired sweating.
Hemophiliacs/Individuals Prone to Bleeding – The use of infra slim air pressure massages should be avoided by anyone who is predisposed to bleeding.
Fever – An individual who has a fever should not use an infra slim air pressure massage until the fever subsides.
Insensitivity to Heat – An individual with insensitivity to heat should not use an infra slim air pressure massage.
Joint Injury – If you have a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours after an injury or until the swollen symptoms subside. If you have a joint or joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.
Implants – Metal pins, rods, artificial joints or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared waves and thus are not heated by this system. Nevertheless, you should consult your physician prior to using an infra slim air pressure massage.
Pacemakers/Defibrillators – The magnets used to assemble infra slim air pressure massages can interrupt the pacing and inhibit the output of pacemakers. Please discuss with your doctor the possible risks this may case. In the rare event that you experience pain and/or discomfort, immediately discontinue infra slim air pressure massage use, and exit the infra slim air pressure massage.
