New Infrared Heat Research Results Released

Medical Spa Report: May 2014

Fit Bodywrap, a leader in infrared weight-loss and pain-relief systems, recently released years of clinical research supporting the effectiveness of its infrared heat system. The summaries of findings, "Fit Bodywrap for Wellness" and "Fit Bodywrap for Weight Loss" by Aaron Flickstein, D.C., medical director for Fit Bodywrap, report a wide variety of proven benefits, such as pain relief and detoxification. Research highlights include:

  • The sweat produced by infrared heating as delivered by the Fit Bodywrap can contain as much as five times the amount of fat and toxins compared to sweat generated through traditional exercise.
  • Patients in chronic pain experienced a significant reductino in pain levels (nearly 70 percent) after the first session of infrared therapy.
  • Blood flow during an immersive infrared session can increase from the normal five to seven quarts per minute to as much as 13 quarts per minute.
