Did you know that you can obtain the positive effects of infrared heat in an infrared body wrap? Simply lay on a table with your clothes on, and we’ll wrap you up in the healing warmth of a Formostar body wrap.
This infrared body wrap procedure has numerous benefits for the body, from reducing cellulite in problem areas to even addressing weight loss. The best part is that these body wraps are non-surgical, which means you can get all of these benefits without having to go under the knife!
Formostar designs infrared body wraps that use far infrared energy, a type of electromagnetic radiation, to penetrate deep into the body where real change and healing can occur.
Infrared heat is felt as a mild radiant heat and is shown to penetrate up to 1.5 inches beneath your skin! This increases the core body temperature, speeding up your metabolism and circulation in the process.
You also get infrared waves from the rays of the sun: it’s a part of the light spectrum that you can’t see. We all know the effects of several cloudy days and a long winter. We feel tired, sluggish, a little depressed, and don’t sleep as well. To top it off, we seem to catch every cold that comes our way.
Unfortunately, the infrared waves from sunlight that make us thrive can also damage our skin. Fortunately, infrared body wraps do not harm the skin, in fact, they help it! By facilitating sweat production, this heat system treatment acts as an alternative to visiting saunas.
Call us at SOS Wax for your first appointment and to find out just how our products and services can help heal and revitalize you and your skin.
Prior to your first infrared body wraps treatment, you’ll want to drink a lot of water to get your body hydrated. These infrared body wraps produce a lot of sweat! By drinking lots of water you avoid dehydration, nausea, and headaches.
You’ll find these types of infrared body wraps are soothing and relaxing. Dress in your comfy sweatshirt and sweatpants (that you don’t mind sweating in), bring your favorite tunes, a magazine, or book, and relax while you burn away calories, reduce fat, and remove toxins.
There is no need to disrobe. Simply lay down and our specialists will wrap you in six silicone treatment pads and cover you with a blanket. You’ll feel yourself slowly heating up as sweat production turns from a trickle to a stream. In this case, perspiration is our friend! In fact, it’s one of the reasons you get so many health benefits from simple infrared body wraps.
Relax, take a nap, or read a good book for about 50 minutes, whatever helps you destress and get the most from your treatment.
Excessive sweating and infrared heat doesn’t just benefit clients who are looking for weight loss or cellulite removal treatments. From helping with blood pressure to even improving one’s mood, read below to find out what an infrared body wrap session can do for you.
A 50-minute infrared body wrap session burns calories and releases fats and toxins through your sweat glands, causing weight loss. It’s like running a few miles when you’re really napping. In fact, the effects of infrared heat are so pronounced that NASA now uses it on long space flights.
Because of the elevated metabolism, infrared heat body wraps continue to burn calories for up to 24 hours after your treatment! One 50-minute session burns 1200 calories, the equivalent of marathon running. What a great weight loss system!
Between our to-do lists, attention to our social media accounts, and 60-hour work schedules, we can find ourselves burning both ends of the candle until little energy remains.
Inflammation is one of the by-products of our stress-inducing lifestyles. It is also the cause of many chronic illnesses, including chronic fatigue. Infrared body wraps (as well as far infrared saunas) reduce inflammation and is effective at restoring energy. Just think about how good you feel after basking in the sunlight for a bit!
An infrared body wrap and its deep penetration have been shown to reduce the pain of arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and fibromyalgia. Body wrap treatments also relieve back and neck pain and joint stiffness. A fit bodywrap does this by increasing blood flow and providing energy to irritated nerve endings.
That cellular vibration we’ve talked about previously also improves your lymph drainage, which in turn helps remove waste and toxins and reduces swelling. This process eases the burden on the immune system, allowing it to attend to all the other viruses, bacteria, and wayward cell tissue it’s faced with.
By improving blood circulation, an infrared body wrap also supports cardiovascular health.
An infrared body wrap session can help combat aging, reduce wrinkles and cellulite, and tone and tighten your skin.
We know, that’s a lot of promises from simply laying on your back and relaxing for an hour! They are, however, all based on scientific facts.
As the heat rises during your infrared body wraps, the increase in blood flow sends oxygen and other nutrients to your tissues and cells, refreshing your skin cells with vital nutrients. The far infrared energy also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin.
Did you know that collagen is responsible for our youthful appearance and helping us avoid saggy jowl and neck syndrome?
But that’s not all. Infrared heat therapy also reduces the appearance of acne, varicose veins, and cellulite. In fact, it’s quickly becoming a safe alternative to surgeries and injection treatments used to treat the effects of aging.
As far-infrared energy seeps down beneath your skin, it causes your cells to vibrate at a faster rate, increasing metabolism and breaking down fat deposits.
Have you heard about SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder? It’s a type of depression that’s related to the seasons, and arrives as the winter’s darkness takes its toll. Far infrared therapy brings the sun’s rays, or at least part of them, inside the body where they bring warmth, increased circulation, and vitality.
Did you know that we’re exposed to over 700,000 different toxic chemicals on a daily basis? These chemicals are in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water that we drink, and the clothes we wear. There even in our prescription drugs! Helping your body detoxify this overload is one of the best things you can do for your health.
A far-infrared heat source vibrates the water molecules that store unwanted toxins in your human body and causes them to break down.
At the same time, your blood vessels are dilating, increasing circulation, activating your sweat glands, and relieving the body of its toxic overload.
At SOS Wax, we’re committed to helping you look and feel your best. From our waxing services to our skincare services, teeth whitening, and infrared body wraps, we’re here to transform and support our clients.
