Can a FIT Bodywrap really make my Skin better?
Yes, the FIR Bodywrap increases blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to your skin, promoting healthy tone, texture and a mild cleansing.
What is Infrared Heat?
Infrared heat is “radiant” heat. Radiant heat is a form of energy that heats objects directly through a process called conversion, without having to heat the air in between. Radiant heat is also called Far Infrared Energy (FIR). Infrared rays in the electromagnetic spectrum cannot be seen, but are felt as heat. Like sunshine, you feel the heat but you can’t actually see the rays!
Far infrared (FIR) energy is a part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight, and is actually naturally produced by the body!
Your body can absorb FIR because of its deep penetrating ability. When FIR penetrates skin, it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of tissues cause blood vessels in capillaries to dilate, promoting better blood circulation, and the heat produced helps to rid your body toxins and metabolic wastes by causing you to sweat.
FIR heat also stimulates the dilation of peripheral blood vessels, bringing oxygen to joints and extremities, relaxing stiff muscles, and even speeding the healing of sprains and strains. The increased blood flow helps aching and injured muscles recover faster because of the stronger blood flow and the quicker metabolic and toxic waste production being purged from your body by sweating.
What parts of the body can be targeted?
The Fit is a full bodywrap, similar to lying in a sleeping bag. Due to the bodywrap’s shape, your body is fully covered to reduce the amount of cold spots. During the session you can personally adjust the level of heat within 4 different zones consisting of arms, abdomen, upper legs, and lower legs.
Most people dont sweat enough.
Sweat not only cools your body, but it acts as a garbage collector. Antiperspirants, artificial environments, smog, synthetic clothing, and a relatively idle physical lifestyle will clog skin pores and inhibit the healthy flow of sweat. As you will learn, sweat can reverse all of these detrimental side effects!
When you’re hot, as you would be in a sauna, heat-sensitive nerve endings produce acetylcholine, a chemical that tells the 2.3 million sweat glands embedded in your skin to react.
Sweating is good for you.
Relaxing in a FIT Bodywrap could be the most vigorous activity you’ve had all day! The heat produces an artificial “fever” and every organ of your body jumps into action. While you look and feel relaxed, your inner organs are as active as though you were jogging or swimming. At the same time, your body is being cleansed from the inside out by your skin, which is busy sweating to get rid of all that waste.
