FAR more than a sauna...
The FIT Bodywrap is the only commercial-grade system to deliver direct infrared heat, which is far more effective than theindirectinfrared heat emitted by saunas and pods.
Weight loss, Pain relief, Detoxification, Skin care and overall Wellness are all benefits clients will receive during their treatment.
There are a number of infrared systems on the market these days. So, how has FIT Bodywrap managed to produce the most effective, reliable, and comfortable infrared sauna wrap system for over a decade? By staying focused on what we do best –infrared.
When it comes to far infrared heat therapy, a closer heat source means deeper heat penetration to the body and greater benefits. Being the over-achievers that we are, we designed our infrared sauna wrap with flexible carbon fiber heating elements. This means that all 19 of the FIT Bodywrap’s infrared emitters contour to the body for 360 degrees of luxurious, encapsulating far infrared heat.
The best part? Unlike an infrared sauna, which has emitters placed within the walls of the cabin, the FIT Bodywrap’s heat source lays directly on top of the body. This allows the infrared rays to penetrate the body up to 1.5 inches for maximumdirect infraredimmersion, delivering the greatest possible benefits.
When it comes to infrared heat therapy, the closer the body is to the heat source, the deeper the heat can penetrate and the more effective it will be.
What is Infrared Therapy and how does it work?
An infrared therapy is a therapy method that uses light to treat acute or chronic pain. It is actually considered to be a simple and painless therapy being studied for usage in various fields of medicine.
Infrared light has the ability to penetrate below the skin layers, which provides a wide range of health benefits without damaging the skin. As a matter of fact, infrared light has the ability to penetrate the inner layers of our skin at about 2 to 7 centimeters deep. The deeper heat penetration to the body also means greater benefits. Such method allows people to enjoy the benefits of the sun without being exposed to harmful ultraviolet rays. Furthermore, infrared therapy is proven to be safe to use and you do not have to worry about experiencing any undesired harmful effect.
FIT BODYWRAP CONTRAINDICATIONS
Is FIT Bodywrap right for you?
The segment of the infrared spectrum emitted by the Fit Bodywrap has been shown to offer an astounding range of possible therapeutic benefits in research conducted around the world. The data presented herein is offered for reference purposes only and to stimulate further observation. No implication that the Fit Bodywrap is a cure for or treatment of any disease is implied nor should it be inferred.
If you have any of the following conditions, or any other condition where the use of infrared heat is contraindicated, you should not receive a FIT Bodywrap session without approval from your doctor.
Do not attempt to self-treat any disease with a Fit Bodywrap without direct supervision of a physician.
If you have a disease, be certain to consult with a primary-care physician concerning it.
If you are using any prescription drugs, check with your physician or pharmacist for any possible change in the drug’s effect due to any interaction with infrared heat.
It is considered inadvisable to raise the core temperature in someone with adrenal suppression, systemic lupus erythematosus, or multiple sclerosis, by some authorities.
If you have a recent (acute) joint injury the old school admonition is that it should not be heated for the first 48 hours after the insult or until the hot and swollen symptoms subside. While this may apply the more modern concept is move, exercise, attenuate the pain and treat the injured tissues, the first two of which far infrared does do. If you have a joint or joints that are chronically hot and swollen, these joints may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind.
Vigorous heating is strictly contraindicated in cases of enclosed infections be they dental, in joints, or in any other tissues.
If you are pregnant or suspect you may be, discontinue your Fit Bodywrap use.
Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared rays and thus are not heated by these wavelengths, nevertheless you should consult your surgeon prior to your FIT Bodywrap session. Certainly, infrared heat therapy must be discontinued if you experience pain near any such implants.
Silicone does absorb infrared energy. Implanted silicone or silicone prostheses for nose or ear replacement may be warmed by the infrared rays. Since silicone melts at over 200°C it should not be adversely effected by FIT Bodywrap use. Older versions of the Fit Bodywrap have an off switch for the breast region to avoid a problem from this issue. It is still advised that you check with your surgeon and possibly a representative from the implant product manufacturer to be certain about safety.
Heating of the low back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase their menstrual flow. Once a woman is aware that this may occur, she can choose to allow herself to possibly experience this short-term effect without worry or to simply avoid FIT Bodywrap use at that time of her cycle.
Haemophiliacs and anyone predisposed to haemorrhage should avoid IR usage or any type of heating that would induce vasodilation which can potentiate the tendency to bleed.
Obviously, should any condition worsen with use of the Fit Bodywrap, the use of the system should be discontinued.
People do not experience increased pain using the Fit Bodywrap unless such use is contraindicated. If you do, the use of radiant heat is clearly inappropriate for you at that time.
