Infrared body wraps, are sold in various styles and sizes.
Although clay, mud and seaweed body wraps try to achieve the same results, there are major differences between how the Infrared Body Wrap and other body wraps work.
For example, clay bandages are heated in a pot and once removed, quickly decrease in temperature. Time is then spent in the wrapping process, which takes 15 minutes or more during which time the bandages continue to decrease in temperature.
Once wrapped, the heat level has gone so low that the system is only effective for the initial 10 to 20 minutes of the one-hour treatment. The heat dissipates and becomes virtually inadequate.
They differ from traditional body wraps in that they have infrared heat therapy in order to produce the expected results.
These wraps targets and penetrates uniformly into the body emitting a full bio-spectrum that gets into the deep layers of the skin.
This infrared heat is a form of energy that is produced by the sun. Infrared light cannot be seen by the human eye, but we know that it is present by feeling the warmth on our skin. It has the longest wavelength of color.
It is also thought to be seven times more effective at detoxifying heavy metals and other environmental toxins, as opposed to conventional heat saunas, steam saunas, and mineral wraps.
The energy effectively breaks down water molecules that accumulate and store unwanted toxins and debris in our body that block circulation and major cellular functions. The rays gently heat the body from the inside out to get underneath the fat tissue.
The heat softens the fat/cellulite tissue, breaks it up, and releases it back to the blood stream to be burned up as energy.
The sweating process helps clean out the skin's pores leaving the skin glowing and clean, immediate inch loss, firmer skin and burns over 1200 calories in a single 50 minute session.
A new "glow" is achieved as the skin is freed of dirt, toxins and dry skin cells, due to a deep cleansing of unwanted impurities. Skin will rejuvenate as the body detoxification takes over.
With obesity on the rise, men and women are trying to find ways to help them with their weight issues.

Weight Loss and immediate inch loss are easy.
The infrared sauna body wrap is also a great way for smokers to control their weight after quitting smoking.
Infrared body wraps began as commercial units specifically used in day spas, medi spas, weight loss clinics, and other related businesses.
Infrared wraps are now available to be used at home, they are very comparable to the $10,000 units found in day spas, these units are very affordable and effective, the purchase price average aproximatly $400. I find them to be a perfect addition to any home spa.
On the other end there are completely different infrared body wraps, called infrared sauna bag or sauna blanket. There are also portable saunas, deluxe home saunas from every price range.
I have a sauna blanket which I really enjoy. Just lay it on the floor or bed, turn it on and it heats up in minutes. It helped me with detoxification when I quit smoking. I did not gain weight like so many others once they stop smoking.
