The infrared energy in a FIT Bodywrap is not only safe, but also highly beneficial for your body. As with anything, you should always consult with your own doctor if you have any questions on whether a FIT Bodywrap is appropriate and safe for you. Factors include:
Yes, the FIR heat in a FIT Bodywrap increases blood circulation to carry great amounts of nutrients to your skin, promoting healthy tone, texture, and a mild cleansing.
...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.
