An Infrared Body Wrap emit Far Infrared Rays and this heat therapy can aid in weight loss by speeding up the metabolic process of vital organs and endocrine glands, resulting in substantial caloric loss in one body wrap session. Sweating is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. The process requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water soluble at 110 degrees Fahrenheit and then allows the body to sweat out fats and toxins.
What is the targets fat loss opportunity from using infrared body wrap heat therapy?
As every individual is different, fat loss from an infrared body wrap will depend upon the physiological make-up of that person. So the greater the excess weight someone has, the faster and more dramatic results will be seen. Some people may not experience a great weight loss, but will see an improved body appearance by losing inches or dress sizes.
Infrared body wrap heat can penetrate up to about 2 inches and can actually reach the bone. It is because of this deep penetration why an infrared body wrap can be so effective for sore muscles, sports injuries and even the aches and pains from arthritis as well as for the reduction of cellulite and weight loss.
It is has been said that a 60 minute session can actually burn about 1500 hundred calories. Now let it be noted this really depends on the person’s particular body type and how well they can handle the heat. With keeping your caloric intake to a reasonable level based on your particular active or non-active lifestyle, over the years I have seen client’s lose up to 25 pounds per month using an infrared body wrap at least three times a week.
When using an infrared body wrap, it is important to understand how an infrared body works. Infrared is a radiant heat and infrared waves are light waves that are invisible. Because the heat produced by the infrared body wrap is radiant, it is more tolerable to you than the heat produced by forced air heat or even steam saunas.
Our bodies absorb infrared heat which means it is heating your body up from the inside out. It is said that infrared heat can penetrate up to two inches. Because the infrared waves are absorbed this deep into the muscular and even skeletal systems, this form of heat can help to force waste and impurities in our bodies out through our largest organ; the skin.
What is an Infrared body wrap?
An infrared body wrap is a body treatment that involves an infrared blanket and may or may not consist of a product application.
An infrared blanket allows the client to relax while enjoying the benefits of infrared. When applying certain products to the body prior to the treatment, can accelerate the of the benefits.
First let’s talk about the benefits for a few moments of an Infrared Body Wrap.

The Infrared Body Wrap seen on The Doctors today can be seen here .
I have been body wrapping and getting body wrapped for over 10 years. In fact I have body wrapped over 5000 clients!
The body wrap seen here is a double whammy of helping the body to rid itself of toxins, but also gives the body a good dose of minerals.
I am a little disappointed how The Doctors only ended with it being a water loss and to use caution. Of course you need to drink water….just as if you were exercising and sweating; which is beneficial to your health. I do understand their concern and as when you are ever in a situation which causes you to sweat and can dehydrate, it is always crucial to replace the water and even drink something with electrolytes.
Infrared Body Wraps work the same as infrared therapy, and is similar to the infrared energy found in FIR Saunas. The heat produced causes the heart rate to increase. This is a lot like when you are exercising, you get your heart rate up and over the course of the treatment you will also begin sweating.
So why do I always recommend an infrared body wrap to my clients? The answer is quite simple. There are many therapeutic benefits of an infrared body wrap. Let’s talk about them a bit. They are in no particular order, as I believe they are all important.
Infrared helps the reduction of cellulite (fatty clogged, water logged tissue), and promotes weight loss by helping to breakdown fat.
By helping the body to burn many calories per infrared body wrap session (as much as a 1000), it is revving the metabolism with the calorie burn and, therefore, supports the body fat reduction which leads to weight loss.
This Infrared body wrap targets and penetrates uniformly into the body emitting a full bio-spectrum that gets into the deep layers of the skin. It is also thought to be seven times more effective at detoxifying heavy metals and other environmental toxins, as opposed to conventional heat saunas, mineral wraps, and steam saunas. This Infrared body wrap is a great choice for your well being.
What the heat does is softens the fat and cellulite tissue, that breaks it up. After it breaks it up it is going to be released from the body, and burned up as energy.
Although mud seaweed and clay body wraps try to achieve the same results, there are major differences between how the Infrared Body Wrap works.
