Infrared Body Wrap Benefits
Infrared helps the reduction of cellulite, speed up metabolism increasing weight loss and relaxation. Because infrared heating the body from the inside to outside of about 1 ½ – 2 inches deep into the skin, an infrared body wrap encourages detoxification of accumulated toxins and metabolic waste through sweating.
It is important to drink water before and during the infrared body wrap and to replenish electrolytes after using infrared because the infrared body wrap can help the body rid itself of excess fluids that prevent the body functioning at its optimal levels.
How Does it Increase My Metabolism?
The heat produced by the Infrared Body Wrap Treatment is similar to that of a cardiovascular or physical workout all while laying down for a period of 40 or 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 speed up your Basic Metabolic Rate and by doing so consumes or burns calories. As you relax in the gentle Infrared Body Wrap treatment, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. As your body increases sweat production to cool itself, your heart will work harder to pump blood at a greater rate to boost blood circulation.
How often can I get an infrared wrap treatment? This will depend on a person’s lifestyle. If a person is very physically active undertaking significant walking, jogging, working out, or competitive sports, the infrared heat therapy can be used as often as every 2 days. For best results it is preferable right before a workout as this will help burn the most dramatic amount of calories and also has maximum impact on body definition. With relatively physically inactive people, a minimum of 3 days between sessions is recommended.
