You’re committed, you’ve made the decision to take a holistic approach to health and wellness, and sweat inducing, pain alleviating, toxin fighting infrared sessions are on your team. As with any wellness program, to see the results you desire it may require that you put in a little work. Trust us, it’s worth it. During a session, you should experience a comfortable sweat and experience a variety of benefits such as pain relief, relaxation and detoxification.
We’re often asked, “How Can I get the BEST results from my infrared sessions?” and we’re glad you’re asking! The answer, though, depends on your goals. Making sure you’re hydrated is always recommended, but for those looking to see wellness, detoxification and weight loss, here are a few ways to give your body what it needs for a successful and sweat-filled infrared body wrap session.
Hydrate, hydrate and hydrate
Staying hydrated is at the top of the list when it comes to infra…well…actually just life in general. There are a myriad of reasons to stay hydrated, all the time, not just during your infrared sessions! But, hydrating is one of the most important steps when it comes to a successful body wrap session. Water keeps your body cool, assists with toxin removal, keeps the skin supple and allows the body to release toxins through sweating and bodily functions. How much water you should be drinking depends on your weight, activity level and your environment. If wellness is a priority for you, your hydration should be as well!
Select Healthy Eats
If your goal is weight loss keep in mind, you need to be making healthy choices in the kitchen! It’s true, exposure to infrared heat can help you burn calories and shed pounds. But, your efforts will not be noticed if you immediately replace those calories (and then some) after each session. Don’t get us wrong, we aren’t asking you to deprive yourself here. Just remember, eat foods that are natural, pay attention to what you consume and indulge in moderation. It’s actually pretty easy once you make it routine, speaking of routines…
Incorporate a Fitness Regime
We know that traditional work outs are not available to everyone. If you can’t, you can’t and that’s ok. But, for those that can, working out multiple times each week will help you see those results!
This could be as intense or as light a fitness plan as you can handle. For instance, we know from experience that those who run for exercise can be just as successful as those who choose other workouts like Pilates. Your routine needs to be in alignment with your goals and when it comes to FITness the program you choose should be one for your body type. As you increase your strength and stamina, your exercise schedule may become more intense. That’s up to you! Working out before or after a session can also enhance session results.
FIT Tip: Working out at home can be just as effective as hitting the gym. Don’t get caught up in excuses, if you want it go for it.
Make it a Habit
How do we see the best results from our nutrition and fitness efforts? By incorporating them into our regular routine. Give yourself the gift of consistency, those who participate in infrared sessions weekly or even multiple times a week have reported that they notice intensified results sooner that also last longer. While benefits like pain relief, relaxation and detoxification may be observed immediately benefits such as weight loss, cellulite reduction and skin rejuvenation may take a couple of sessions. Most providers will offer a package or series that allows clients to take advantage of weekly, monthly or at least regular sessions at a discounted rate.
Other quick tips for a successful session include;
- Keeping your head above your heart, due to the blood flow increase
- Making sure you’re comfortable in the wrap
- Simply relaxing!
How you feel after each session may vary, take note of the steps you’ve taken when you feel great and keep doing that! Body wrap results may vary, but consistency can help you reach the goals you’ve set and then some!
