INFRARED BODY WRAPS NOT ONLY BURN CALORIES, BUT AID IN DETOXIFICATION AND THE REDUCTION OF CELLULITE. IT HELPS TO RELIEVE JOINT AND MUSCLE PAIN AS WELL AS CLEARS, TONES AND BRIGHTENS THE APPEARANCE OF SKIN.
Sauna therapy has been around for centuries as a means to heal the body, relax the mind and revive the soul. Infrared saunas have recently been emerging as the new healing leaders, as studies are proving time and again that the heat that is omitted by these saunas penetrates deep into the core at the cellular level. What this means is that the environmental pollutants and toxins that are hidden deep within our tissue can be stimulated and released, allowing the body to heal itself faster and more efficiently.
Infrared light is an invisible part of the suns spectrum and is necessary for the survival of all living organisms. Infrared uses light to create heat, absorbing and enveloping the body, leaving the UVA and UVB damaging effects of the sun, out of the equation. The heat increases metabolic activity and triggers the release of toxins through sweating. Sweating is a crucial component in the detoxification of the body, however many of us do not sweat nearly enough and almost all of us do not “productively” sweat. The heat from infrared causes the breakdown of fat deposits, cholesterol and heavy metals and stimulates the sweat glands allowing the body to release them naturally and productively.
Many people argue that the weight loss benefits said to be proven through sauna treatments is purely the loss of water weight, however with infrared heat being able to penetrate the core, you are able to lose water weight plus burn calories. According to The Journal of the American Medical Association a heat conditioned person can burn roughly 600 calories in just one 30 minute session while allowing 7 times the amount of toxins to release versus regular sweating by means of exercise and traditional steam or dry sauna therapy. By stimulating your metabolic rate on a deeper level, you will not only burn calories during your session but for hours after.
Beyond weight loss and detoxification, infrared therapy has many other benefits including:
Studies have even shown that the consistent use of infrared saunas have aided in the treatment of chronic health problems such as rheumatoid arthritis, congestive heart failure and high blood pressure.
