Infrared body wraps are a favorite wellness service because they provide benefits such as pain relief, toning, tightening, calorie burn, cellulite reduction, detoxification and much more. Perhaps you’ve never tried a body wrap or maybe you are body wrapping right now, but do you know how they work? And do they work the same way other wraps do? As we’ve mentioned in past blogs, there are many types of body wraps available today. Spa professionals may choose to offer multiple body wraps or body treatments within their facility, so it is essential to understand how they provide the benefits they do!
If you’ve done some exploration into the world of body wraps you may have come across what we refer to as traditional wraps as well as wraps that warm up your body with infrared. How do body wraps work? The level of effectiveness depends on the type of body wrap you choose. With wraps that use herbs and minerals, the herbs are the ‘active ingredient.' This traditional style of body wrapping often includes topical products applied to the body before it is tightly wrapped. Recipients of traditional body wraps might notice inch loss. However, the lost inches typically return after a meal or beverage. When it comes to infrared body wraps the top performer is the infrared heat. Infrared wraps are effective because infrared heat can penetrate the body, relieving pain, increasing blood flow, boosting the metabolism and breaking up fats and toxins that are released through intensified perspiration.
Infrared Body Wraps Can Provide Lasting Results
Because of the scientifically backed benefits they provide; infrared body wraps are a real wrap game changer! They utilize the power of calming infrared heat to produce actual wellness results. For this concept to make sense, it is helpful to have a grasp on how infrared works. Infrared heat warms the body without heating the air around us. This allows the gentle rays to penetrate our bodies, rather than only the skin. As the infrared rays penetrate the body, they can increase blood flow, relieve pain, soothe sore muscles, break up fats and toxins, and more.
