Frequently Asked Questions
How Does It Work?
FIT Bodywrap works by heating your body and utilizing the benefits of infrared. Infrared can assist with pain relief by calming down irritated nerve endings and it promotes relaxation by helping maintain healthy levels of cortisol. Another important benefit is detoxification - the sweat you produce during a session can contain 15-20% toxins. To assist with your weight loss goals, during your session your body takes the fat cells, breaks them down to fuel the production of sweat and uses them as energy. As your body heats up you begin to sweat and the result of this process is calories burned. Finally, it can promote skin rejuvenation by increasing blood flow and bringing oxygen and nutrients to tissues and cells. The FIT Booster greatly enhances these results!
The FIT Bodywrap system immerses the body directly in soothing, natural far infrared heat (FIR), up to 130° F. During a 50 minute session, the core body temperature is raised and maintained,
resulting in increased blood flow, circulation, and sweating.
How long is the session?
We recommend a 50 minute session to receive maximum benefits, however you can end your session at any time if you feel uncomfortable.
How many sessions do I need? How many calories are burned and/or pounds lost?
The number of calories burned in a session is dependent on a number of factors and can vary from session to session. These factors include:
Your body type and metabolism
How conditioned you are to sweat
Your body’s current hydration status
How/what you’ve recently eaten
Adequate application of the Fit Booster spray
Also, remember that a FIT Bodywrap session can elevate your metabolism for many hours after the session ends, so the increased caloric consumption can continue for many hours as well.
While water weight lost during a session is replaced with rehydration, up to 15%-20% of the sweat is composed of fats and toxins and is not replaced. Pairing sessions with healthy eating habits and exercise or activity will generate the best results. We recommend a program of 2 sessions weekly in order to achieve meaningful pain relief or weight loss, and we offer special packages for multiple sessions. Don’t forget, you’re detoxifying at the same time! Everyone is different and may experience a variety of results. Of course, even infrared bodywraps may not help much if you celebrate each session with indulgent foods.
Can FIT Bodywrap really improve my skin?
Yes, the far infrared heat can increase blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to your skin, promoting healthy tone, texture, and a mild cleansing. Using the FIT Booster spray before your session can also increase microcirculation, moisture, stimulate skin detoxification, and reduce cellulite.
Is it safe to use with breast implants? What about other conditions?
There is no research indicating that the infrared heat and temperatures generated by the FIT Bodywrap would cause changes in implants, although saline implants may be warmed by the heat. However, the FIT Bodywrap has a special control allowing you to deactivate the breast area of the wrap if you prefer. FIT Bodywrap may be contraindicated if you have any chronic conditions, diseases, pins, rods or artificial joints, or if you are pregnant. Please check with your primary physician before starting FIT Bodywrap sessions if any of these apply to you.
How much water should I drink before a session? How much water after a session? What should I wear? Is there anything else I should know to prepare before or after my session?
It is recommended that you drink plenty of water before, plenty during and plenty of water after your session. We also recommend that you stay as hydrated as possible throughout the day of your session and the days following. We have water bottles, towels and a FIT Coat (gown to sweat in) available for you. We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing. You should not shower for at least 30 minutes following your session to maximize all of the benefits of the infrared heat.
