Infrared Body Wrap & Infrared Sauna

Infrared Body Wrap 90min/$165

Infrared Sauna 45min/$45 (Per Person)

Infrared Sauna 60min/$60 (Per Person)

The Infrared Detox Body Wrap utilizes far infrared rays to increase metabolism and circulation. This is a powerfully detoxifying treatment, perfect for those seeking to push through weight loss plateaus. Far infrared rays penetrate the body, greatly increasing core body temperature. As the body heats up, it works to hard cool itself and maintain homeostasis; this creates a temporary metabolic increase and thus, fat loss. Infrared rays also stimulate fat cells, causing them to release any toxic build-up. As your body sweats, these toxins will be safely excreted. We use only organic, natural oils that assist the body in the detoxification process.

Infrared Wrap FAQ

Are there any contraindications?

Pregnancy, heart disease, lupus, multiple sclerosis, adrenal suppression, the first 48hrs of an acute joint injury or if you have high or low uncontrolled blood pressure issues. If you have any concerns please contact your doctor.

Do I need a doctors permission?

If you are on medication or have a physical or medical condition, please talk to your doctor and get clearance.

Is it painful?

No, not at all. Infrared is a soothing, healing heat source. The heat may feel intense, but is regulated by your technician based on your comfort. This treatment is very relaxing and many clients fall asleep during their wrap.

Can it help with cellulite?

This wrap can be effective for flushing toxic build-up out of fatty tissue. Profuse sweating helps clear this form of unwanted debris from the body. The less debris stored and the less fluid retained to suspend the particles, the less lumpiness under the surface of the skin. Your skin will have a smoother and flatter appearance as your body releases these impurities.

 Will I need more than one wrap?

If you are trying to reach a certain size, trying to reduce the appearance of cellulite or if you are trying to tighten loose skin that is a result from weight loss, then you should come in once or twice a week until your goals are reached. Ask us about our rebalancing cleanses.

What is Far Infrared (FIR)?

FIR infrared ray energy is a part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight, minus the skin damaging UV. FIR Heat Therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry greater amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone, texture, and mild skin cleansing.

 Why are oils applied?

When we apply the detoxifying oils, they create a barrier on the skin, called the “second skin,” that when combined with the Far Infrared Blanket forces the body to convert stored fat into the “extra” energy required for perspiration to break through the “second skin.” Castor oil, coconut oil and a blend of essential oils are used.These oils are also very detoxifying on their own.

How does the Infrared Wrap provide the same effects of exercise?

In a 20-30 minute session, the body receives a workout similar to a 6-mile run and perspires the same amount as a 6-mile run. It varies for each client.

How can the wrap help to reduce pain?

Infrared heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. This increased circulation allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body and helps reduce pain and speeds up the healing process. Many people use infrared heat as a successful way to help alleviate the pain or discomfort of arthritis, rheumatism and muscle spasms.

How does the wrap improve the immune system?

Most illnesses are accompanied by a fever. The body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. This rise in temperature is one of the best ways to rid the body of chemicals and unwanted bacterial growth. Far infrared heat induces an “artificial fever” by heating up the body without the pains of an illness. As a result, the body protects itself much more easily because the immune system is activated by the “artificial fever."

How should I prepare?

Please be sure to eat a full high protein, low carb meal 60-90 minutes prior to treatment. Please make sure your body is adequately hydrated. Drink 4-6 glasses of water during the day until your appointment time.

What do I need to do after my wrap?

Eating is not recommended during the 3 hours following the treatment unless you feel light-headed. Plan to sip water continually throughout the rest of the day after your body wrap to continue the flushing process. If you do feel light headed or dizzy coconut water is recommended.

What about soaps, oils and lotions before the body wrap?

It is best to not use any lotions or oils on your skin the day of your body wrap. Mineral oils and lotions and some other oils will reduce the efficacy of the essential oils used in the body wrap lessening your results.

What do I need to wear?

Most women choose to be wrapped in the nude. You have the option of bringing underwear or swimsuit to be wrapped in as well. Men are required to wear a swimsuit or underwear. You will want to change into dry undergarments after your body wrap, so plan accordingly.

How much time should I allow?

The entire process takes less than 90 minutes.

How often can I get a body wrap?

The body wrap is a safe and effective process that may be done as often as you wish. For inch loss results, we have found that a series of 6 to 12 wraps, two per week gives most clients the best results. Waiting too long in between wraps means that each wrap is just detoxifying your body from what was introduced since your last wrap. By getting wraps closer together your results are cumulative. For maintenance we recommend coming in every 6-8 weeks.

How long does it last?

As long as you maintain your weight (or lose weight), the lost inches will stay off if you lead a very clean lifestyle. In everyday life we continue to take in toxins through chemicals and preservatives absorbed daily through the air we breathe, the foods and drinks we consume, and the products we use on our bodies. As previously noted, the wrap is removing toxins, so introducing toxic substances back into your body could reverse the effects. During your post-consultations we give instructions to help maintain your results. We recommend reducing the amounts of toxins and reducing or avoiding salt, sugar, fried foods, alcohol, caffeine and other highly toxic foods. We recommend drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day, especially on the days following each wrap to continue the detoxification process through the body’s natural elimination system. Flushing your system this way will ultimately aid in detoxification and weight loss.
 

INFRARED SAUNA

 We offer the very latest solar carbon sauna therapy from Sunlight Saunas constructed from Basswood which is 100% hypoallergenic and odor free. Our Sauna room has private shower facilities to ensure privacy and comfort.
The therapeutic benefits of infrared sauna treatments have been well documented and there is clinical evidence to support the views that they can be very beneficial as part of a cleansing program and assist in weight loss, pain reduction, improved circulation, lowering of blood pressure and improved skin tone. Our sauna is outfitted with radio or CD player but you are welcome to bring in your phone as the sauna will not harm it. We recommend you combine the treatment with a massage or colonic to maximize the benefits the infrared therapy has to offer.

What is Far Infrared Ray (FIR)?

Far-infrared radiant (FIR) heat is a completely safe form of naturally occurring energy that heats objects by direct light conversion. Direct light conversion warms only the object and does not raise the temperature of the surrounding free air. FIR heat is not ultraviolet radiation but a narrow band of energy within the 5 to 15 micron level. This type of energy travels 2-3" deep into the body to increase circulation and nourish damaged tissue. The sun is the primary source of radiant energy, but not all of this energy is beneficial. Although life needs energy from the sun, too much sunlight damages the skin. FIR heat provides many of the health benefits of natural sunlight without any of the dangerous effects of solar radiation.

 Is infrared heat better than traditional steam heat?

Infrared heat has some distinct advantages over traditional steam heat saunas. Traditional steam saunas raise the temperature of the air to a very high level within the chamber to warm the body. Some people have difficulty breathing in this extremely warm air. FIR saunas work differently. Instead of heating the air within the enclosure, FIR saunas heat the body directly. The result is deeper tissue penetration. In the FIR sauna, the body perspires and receives all of the healthy benefits but avoids the harmful and extremely hot air of a traditional steam sauna. FIR saunas are safe for all ages. They also cleaner and less likely to create an environment where bacteria can flourish. 

Why Is FIR important to the human body?

FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate and reflect. The human body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability. The thermal effect within the deep layers of the tissues causes bloods vessels and capillaries to dilate, promoting a better blood circulation, and the heat so produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating.

How long and how often should I sweat?

Given you are in good and stable health with no contraindications for being in a "heated environment", we suggest a 45 minute session. Our longest session is 60 minutes for the more experienced sauna goer. Depending on what your reasons are for sweating, we suggest every 2 days for steady detoxifying routine or once a week for maintenance. If you are seeking major transformations or addressing health conditions, please come see one of our experts for a consultation specific to your needs.

Can I sweat with a friend in the same sauna?

Yes, you can. However, you will both still be charged for the session.

What do I wear in the sauna?

We believe it's best to have as much skin exposed while in the sauna as possible so that your pores are open and able to sweat freely. That being said, you can be in a robe, bathing suit, tank and shorts, undergarments, etc,. We ask that you do not wear shoes or garments/accessories that could restrict blood flow and circulation.

Health Benefits Of Infrared Saunas

Better Circulation and Increased Energy

The sauna emits FIR energy that is absorbed by human cells, causing a physical phenomenon called "resonance". Thus the cellular activities are instantly invigorated, resulting in a better blood circulation and an overall improved metabolism.

Weight Loss Aid

FIR Sauna 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 a sauna heat session.

Maintain Cardiovascular Health

The FIR Sauna increases heart rate and blood circulation, crucial to maintaining one's health. The heart rate increases as more blood flow is diverted from the inner organs towards the extremities of the skin, without heightening blood pressure.

Speed Recovery from Injuries

For injuries, FIR generated heat stimulates vasodilatation of peripheral blood vessels, bringing oxygen to joints and extremities, speeding the healing of sprains and strains, thus relieving pain and reducing the time it takes the human body to recover from an injury.

Detoxification

The quicker metabolic rate causes extra toxic waste products to be purged from the body through the skin, during perspiration. The skin is often referred to as the 3rd kidney, because it is believed to be responsible for eliminating 30% of the body's waste.

Stress Reduction & Relaxation

FIR Sauna heat treatment before a massage also helps prepare a client by creating an overall relaxing effect. It loosens the muscle tissue so the therapist can do a more thorough and effective massage.

Skin Beauty

For that sought after healthy glow, FIR Sauna heat therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone and texture. A FIR Sauna heat bath also provides a mild cleansing of the skin.

Improved Immune System

By creating an "Artificial Fever", FIR heat has a positive effect on the immune system. Often misunderstood, fever is a natural healing response of the body. The function of the immune system is increased naturally during a fever, while virus and bacterial growth is slowed, weakening its hold. This helps the body ward off invading organisms. A FIR heat treatment in the early stages of a cold or flu has been known to stop the disease before the symptoms occur. The sauna also increases lymphatic flow and drainage.
