Body Wraps: Offering 2 Choices
The Ultimate Body Wrap™ ($25)
The wrap Is infused with a powerful, botanically-based formula which absorbs into the skin, to release toxins from fat cells. Easy to apply and can be worn under clothes or through the night. Lose inches, reduce cellulite, and purify your body! Apply one after your sauna session or take one home to apply at your convenience. One time use.
Our skin is our body’s largest organ and extremely absorbent, making it an ideal delivery portal for nutrients, as well as an exit for impurities in the body. Herbal Body Wraps work towards both – they deliver nutrients and work to detoxify and extract impurities. A Body Wrap is the healthiest way to lose inches quickly and is effective for hydration, skin firming, detoxification and size loss.
Full Body Wraps ($130 with an Infrared Sauna Session)
The Body Wrap is effective on its own but it’s even more effective after an infrared sauna treatment. Because the body’s internal heat is already high and the toxins are stirred up from the molecular vibration of the infrared heat, the Wrap allows more of the unwanted chemical toxins to be released. This is an extremely effective detoxification treatment . Following a treatment, hydration is critical to ensure the toxins can continue to be eliminated from the body (for up to three days) and will help to ensure long term weight loss and skin smoothing results!
People don’t often think of toxins as taking up space in the cell, but as we all know, you can’t get two things into one space. As trapped toxic chemicals are removed from cells, more oxygen and nutrients can move in and cellular metabolism improves for easier weight/inch loss.
Full Body Wrap: The Pure Aloe botanical formula is very high in nutrients and does a beautiful job at hydrating and firming the skin. This rejuvenating spa treatment is a proprietary blend of a botanical herbal tea solution and essential oils combined with organically grown Aloe Vera gel. This Aloe and toxin-cleansing herbal formula penetrates through the protein wall of fat cells to draw toxins out. The proprietary combination uses minimal processing methods without heat to retain the enzyme activity which allows for better absorption of ingredients into the layers of the skin for optimum results.
Relax for 45 minutes while the aloe formula absorbs into the skin (health oriented DVDs or meditation Cd’s can be watched if desired). No shower is necessary after a treatment and results are both immediate and continue over a three day time period. Hydrating with pure water over a 72 hour period after the Wrap allows continued release of these toxins which are drawn out of the lymphatic system and flushed out through the kidneys. This creates inch loss, cellulite reduction and clearer, smoother skin.
Treatment Time: You will need to schedule about a two hour window of time if you choose to do the Infrared Sauna and Full Body Wrap. You will relax for 30 to 40 minutes in the Infrared Sauna, then it takes a few minutes to apply the Body Wrap Cloths around your legs, arms and torso. You will then relax for 45 minutes in a zero gravity chair. Bring a bikini swimming suit or an extra set of underwear to wear under your body wrap. Limit of 2 people at a time … and only if you bring them as a friend.
Benefits to the Infrared Sauna
Beautification of Skin
Since the skin is our largest organ, it plays an important role in eliminating undesirable toxins. Some physicians refer to the skin as a third kidney. Saunas utilize the deep penetration of infrared heat which removes toxins stored in subcutaneous fat cells and lymphatic fluid. Add to that the power of carefully chosen essential oils (pine, lavender, juniper, thyme, mint and sage) which is applied to the skin to intensify the release of toxins and aids in the following benefits: Increases circulation and oxygen content in the tissues, promotes the process of fat breakdown, regulates fluid balance and improves lymphatic drainage and helps promote beautiful healthy looking skin. Infrared sauna detoxification requires hydration to ensure the impurities that are released get flushed from the body. You will be given a special mineral water to drink while you relax in the sauna. Pure water should be continued throughout the day of the sauna and the following two days for best results (at least 64 ounces or 8 glasses of water/day).
Detoxifying helps rid your body of potential carcinogenic heavy metals such as mercury and lead, as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulfuric acid, dioxins, pesticides, etc. Infrared saunas are safe and considered the most effective means to remove toxins but also have the benefit of operating at much lower temperatures than regular saunas which makes it very tolerable for most everyone. (around 140 degrees vs. 210) Infrared saunas are proven to be 10 times more effective at removing toxins from the body that convection saunas that you find at most gyms.
The tone, texture and elasticity of skin is enhanced as toxins are released. Blood circulation is increased in the sauna which brings fresh nutrients to the surface. Profuse sweating assists in the removal of toxins that accumulate deep within your pores such as preservatives, toxins from plastics, artificial ingredients, make-up, dirt, lotions and air borne pollutants. The cleaner your body is on the inside, the more it will be reflected with a clear complexion on your skin. While you relax in the sauna, an ozone infused steamer opens facial pores and sterilizes skin, then a purifying masque is applied to pull toxins and excess oils out. An additional facial treatment using pure oxygen infused with plant peptides, can also be added for increased collagen support and to experience healthy, glowing skin. Of course, your body benefits too with the healing properties and regenerating effects of the blend of pure essential oils.
As you bask in the comforts of an infrared sauna, your body is actually hard at work attempting to maintain a constant core temperature. Our body does this by increasing peripheral blood flow and by sweating. In Guyton's textbook of Medical Physiology, it states that 1 gram of sweat requires 0.568 kcal to produce. An average sauna user can produce 500 grams of sweat and burn from 350 to 600 calories during a 45 minute therapeutic sauna session. This is the equivalent of running 2-3 miles. Our infrared saunas can also help rid your body of cellulite which is a gel like substance made up of fat cells, water and wastes. The more we remove toxins from our cells, the more oxygen and nutrients can freely pass through the cell membranes for a higher metabolism, better immune function, and easier weight loss. Feel those extra pounds melt away.
The infrared energy released by an infrared sauna can penetrate up to 1.5" -2" inches deep into muscle tissue. By heating tissue, we experience a vasodilation of peripheral blood vessels which can be beneficial in reducing muscle spasms, joint stiffness and general aches and pains due to conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. There is also evidence that when used 24-48 hours post injury, far infrared energy can reduce the time it takes for your body to heal sprains and strains. May help to reduce pain and swelling in the lower back as well. Helps break down lactic acid build up which causes muscle aches after a hard work out.
Stress Relief & Relaxation
Infrared heat therapy is one way to achieve cardiovascular conditioning effects even without exerting yourself. During a sauna session, vasodilatation of the tiny peripheral blood vessels occurs which increases heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. This provides a workout for your heart as the body attempts to cool itself in diverting blood from internal organs to the extremities and the skin. Research suggests that regular infrared heat therapy has been beneficial in reducing blood pressure (check with your doctor before using if it's very high/low). Relax and get your heart in shape.
Increase Flexibility & Tissue Elasticity
Wrap yourself in the warmth and relax with soothing music, nature videos, or meditation tapes. Of course, you can also read if you like, as your hands can come out of the sauna through zippered openings. Increased circulation triggers the release of endorphins, loosening tight muscles and making you feel better all over. Learn various breathing, stretching and stress reduction techniques that can help calm the mind while also firing up your digestion.
Contra-indications for use of Infrared Sauna Therapy
The warmth relaxes muscles, increases flexibility and range of motion. Studies show, tissues heated to 130° and then stretched have exhibited an elastic elongation that persists long after the stretch is removed. This was not the case when the same tissues were stretched at normal tissue temperatures. Therapeutic benefits were also seen in working with ligaments, tendons, fascia, joint capsules and symposiums that have become scarred, thickened or contracted. Stretching after a sauna session is highly recommended to improve flexibility beyond your expectations. Great to do before a yoga or stretching class.
