During a 60-minute FIT Bodywrap® session, most clients can produce substantial amounts of sweat. Clinical research has established that sweating is an energy-intensive process and can speed up your basal metabolism, the rate at which you burn calories when resting.
During a FIT Bodywrap session, the client can sweat out fat, cholesterol, heavy metals, acids and toxins, which won’t be replaced during hydration. Studies have shown that these solids can constitute 15-20% of the volume of sweat produced through effective infrared immersion as delivered by FIT Bodywrap, compared to only 3%-5% in sweat produced via exercise or use of hot air saunas. A FIT Bodywrap session can burn calories during and after each session, while ongoing sessions can result in weight loss through a combination of burning calories and removing fats and toxins.
Better out than in – detoxify! FIT Bodywrap®’s 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 through normal bodily elimination. During a FIT Bodywrap session, far infrared heat is generated very close to the body, and can penetrate 1-2 inches, heating areas where fats and toxins have been stored.
With regular infrared use using FIT Bodywrap, the body can become less toxic and needs to retain less fat for toxin storage. Our bodies will hold extra weight because they carry toxins and acids they have been unable to safely change or eliminate. The body stores most of its toxic overload in fatty tissue cells, and the infrared heat in FIT Bodywrap can eliminate a variety of harmful toxins.
Say goodbye to heating pads. The FIT Bodywrap’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. In 2008, a study found that chronic pain patients experienced a 70% reduction in pain levels after the first infrared therapy session, such as that in FIT Bodywrap.
Lay back, relax and enjoy. After all, everyone deserves to let their hair down. Clients reported a 45-60 minute FIT Bodywrap® session can lead to a sense of profound relaxation. The American Institute of Stress estimates that 75-90% of all visits to primary care physicians are for stress-related problems. Long-term stress is the cause of countless ill-effects on the body, including increased blood pressure, weight gain and weakening of the immune system. It turns out that relaxation is much more important to the health than we realize!
Scientific evidence shows that immersive infrared thermotherapy, such as that in FIT Bodywrap, helps maintain healthy levels of cortisol, the “fight or flight” hormone made in the adrenal glands that raises heart rate and blood pressure, and leads to the deposit of excess calories in the midsection. While cortisol levels stay the same or rise slightly during an infrared heat session, the far IR rays will drop them immediately afterward.
