person to person. Most clients burn on average 600-900 calories and lose

pain and an overall more relaxed well-being.

What is far-infrared heat?
To eliminate some confusion, far-infrared heat (FIR) is also referred to
as radiant heat, infrared heat or infrared energy. Far-infrared energy
is a part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight and is known for its
deep penetrating heat capabilities. The presence of far-infrared energy
in sunlight is essential and beneficial for all human beings. When far-infrared light waves penetrate a person’s skin tissue a process
called “resonance” occurs. The light wave is
transformed to heat energy and creates a thermal effect throughout the
are the benefits of far-infrared heat?
Far-infrared benefits are immediate and
amazing! While active exercise and balanced diet are excellent
for good health, an equally good add on – thermal body wraps – lets you stay healthy in a relaxing way. Soft, soothing far-infrared heat helps you receive
the all around ‘training effect’ while simply relaxing.
Far-Infrared thermal heat is thought to be seven
times more effective at detoxifying heavy metals as opposed
to conventional heat or steam saunas. Modern diseases are a result of environmental pollutants. They are absorbed
into our body through food containing additives, antiseptics,
agriculture chemicals etc. The United States Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) have found that sweating is one of the most effective
ways to expel these chemical and heavy metal toxins from our
Our body reacts to the increased FIR heating through the
natural cooling process of perspiring. Increased blood circulation stimulates the sweat glands, releasing built-up
toxins and waste. Through the perspiration process,
waste residue and toxins are removed from the cells. Thus, leaving you thoroughly relaxed, detoxified and slimmer!
