What is Infratherapy?
The Slimwave program includes a powerful Infra-red treatment resulting in the improvement and reduction of visible cellulite.
Cellulite is a skin condition that is difficult to treat. It is usually recognized as an accumulation of fats and excess fluids, which are encapsulated as fat in the collagen and tissues underneath the skin of certain parts of the body. Sufferers know that dieting and exercise may burn up the fat but the “orange peel” look of cellulite will remain.
Infra-red treatment used during the Slimwave session quickly warms up the muscles during the treatment, improving the blood circulation and lymph drainage.
Cells and organs exposed to this thermal infra-red treatment are activated, and as the blood circulation is improved, the blood vessels in the cells are widened. As the metabolic rate is increased, the anti-genes in the body are mobilized. The absorbed heat is distributed through the body by the blood circulation leading to an improvement in the lymph drainage. Where the cellulite is evident, the lymph drainage effect is accelerated and the toxins are flushed from the body.
The perspiration effect caused by the high body temperature increases the heart rate and speeds up the blood flow. A 40-min session causes a 600 to 900 calories loss, an equivalent of a 30 minutes run at a marathon runner speed. Infratherapy thus facilitates the weight control and contributes to your body slimming.
The thermal effect of infratherapy acts on the superficial fat, helping to stimulate the metabolism, reduce/eliminate the cellulite and fatty deposits.
During an infratherapy session the blood flow increases and the perspiration helps to eliminate toxic metals and pollutants such as plumb, mercury, zinc and nickel. It is possible thus to expel up to 97% of heavy metals in addition to alcohol, nicotine, sulfuric acid, sodium and cholesterol.
The infrared thermal effect creates an artificial fever, which in turn activates the immune system. This process, combined with the toxin elimination and waste through perspiration strengthens the body’s resistance to disease and promotes general health.
Infratherapy has antispasmodic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. The infrared penetration can reach the source of pain in inflammation or sore muscles treatment. It is beneficial for muscle, articulator and rheumatic pain relief, fibromyalgia and tired legs.
¥ Infrared relaxes all body’s muscles, eliminating tension and stress accumulated during the daily activities.
