Weight Loss

Calorie Burn

One of the most popular benefits of infrared heat therapy is weight loss. Extensive clinical research has documented a wide range of benefits supporting weight loss using immersive far infrared therapy.

  • Sweating consumes calories and a FIT Bodywrap session can induce 3-5 times more sweat than exercise alone.

  • Infrared rebalances metabolism, directly speeding the rate calories are burned even after a session.

  • As organic acids are purged through infrared sweat, your fasting insulin levels typically drop toward a normal range. This will help prevent your body from storing carbs as fat.

Cellulite Reduction

According to FIT Bodywrap’s Clinical Director, Dr. Flickstein, “cellulite is simply fat beneath the skin that tends to have a bumpy appearance because it pushes against connective tissue, causing the skin above it to pucker.” Infrared helps fight cellulite in the following ways:

  • Fat becomes water-soluble at a body temperature of approximately 100.5 degrees F. It “melts” at this temperature by breaking up into smaller particles, which can then be purged from the body through infrared induced sweating.

  • Through Dr. Flickstein’s studies on infrared, he has discovered that infrared can help the appearance of cellulite through its ability to help rebuild collagen connective tissue. Stronger collagen can help rearrange the fat deposits away from each other and the skin’s surface. This helps prevent further accumulation of cellulite.
