Infrared Suana Sweat Wrap
An Infrared Sauna Sweat Wrap may sound a bit like a fix it all session, because that’s exactly what it is. This multi benefit treatment delivers benefits for skin, sleep, stress, weight loss and overall better function in day to day life. It’s basically a work out without the work out.
Benefits of Infrared Sauna Sweat Wrap
Infrared heat relieves pain by expanding blood vessels and increasing circulation. This allows more oxygen to reach injured areas of the body, helps reduce pain and enhance the healing process. Many clients have found success in relieving pain from arthritis, rheumatism, muscle spasms and other chronic pain conditions.
For the body to create sweat, it requires a large amount of energy. Sweating is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. Fat becomes water soluble at 110ºF and allows the body to release fat and toxins. This process reduces salt, excess water retention, and flushes out impurities. This is the perfect treatment to lose pounds, inches and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
SAME EFFECT AS EXERCISE
The heart receives a workout similar to a 2 mile run in a 30-40 minute infrared sauna wrap session and produces a similar amount of sweat. An infrared sauna wrap is a perfect alternate for those that do not have time for regular exercise or suffer from injuries that inhibit activity.
Toxins such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol and carcinogenic heavy metals (cadmium, lead, zinc, nickel) accumulate in the body during modern daily life. Sweating naturally rids the body of toxins but at a slow rate. Infrared heat stimulates the sweat glands to cleanse and detoxify the skin at a higher rate. Sauna sessions speed up the process and remove excessive toxins that would otherwise continue to build up in the body if not released.
IMPROVE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Most illnesses are accompanied by a fever. During a fever, the body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. Often misunderstood, this rise in temperature is a natural stage of the immune system's healing process and is one of the best ways to rid the body of chemicals and unwelcome visitors. The immune system weakens the hold of viruses and bacterial growth. Infrared heat induces a signal by heating up the body but without the pains of an illness. Subsequently, the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the infrared heat. Sauna sessions are a great way to reduce your risk of illness, especially during cold and flu season.
Infrared heat loosens the muscles and relaxes the body. It naturally soothes the parasympathetic nervous system and signals the brain to induce a calm state. It's the perfect way to shut down the fight-or-flight sympathetic nervous system which is highly active due to stresses of our environment.
Infrared heat improves circulation, expels dirt & chemicals and removes dead cells on the surface of the skin. All of these benefits lead to a more even, firm, and glowy complexion.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many calories do you burn in an Infrared Sauna Sweat Wrap Session?
Studies show that an infrared sweat wrap can burn about 600 calories per hour and can even keep your heart rate elevated for the 30 minutes following the session.
What do you wear during an Infrared Sauna Sweat Wrap Session?
When you are in the blanket wrap, it is recommended that you were a bathing suit with no metal wiring in the bra cup. You will get really sweaty, so it is also recommended to bring a change of underwear and bra to put on after your session.
What should I do to prepare for my Infrared Sauna Sweat Wrap Session?
Be sure to drink at least 16 - 22 ounces of water before your session so you are well hydrated. Also, make sure your skin has no lotion or oils applied.

Infrared Sauna Sweat Wraps are safe to do weekly. While one session is beneficial, regular sessions have a more positive impact on the body. Your Esthetician will advise you of the proper treatment plan needed to achieve your goals.
