Infrared Body WrapMED SPA TREATMENTS » Body Contouring
Infrared Body Wrap are a natural heat treatment that uses Far Infrared Heat Energy (FIR) that penetrates twice as deep as other heat sources to target toxins and cellulite trapped in pockets below the surface of the skin. Using the body’s natural cooling system, this treatment stimulates metabolism. It helps to reduce cellulite, burn calories, remove stored toxins, increase weight loss, and help to contour one’s body.
Simultaneously, the deep penetrating heat will help relieve chronic pain, improve joint mobility, and increase blood circulation. Unlike traditional body wraps, the Infrared Body Wrap does not use mud or liquids and does not even require you to remove your clothing.

What is Infrared Heat Therapy?
Infrared Therapy is defined as the use of “Infrared” as by Infrared lamps or heating pads to relieve pain and increase circulation to a particular area of the body. To better understand Infrared therapy, we have to have a better understanding of what type of Infrared rays we are speaking about. Infrared heat is a form of energy that is produced by the sun. Infrared divides into three Infrared waves: near or close, middle or intermediate, and far or long. Infrared waves are safe and used in the Infrared Body Wraps and most other Infrared light used on humans. Infrared light cannot be seen by the human eye, but we know that Infrared is present by feeling the warmth on our skin. When experiencing the Body Wrap, you’ll notice that your body begins to feel like it’s warming from the inside out, and that’s when you begin to detox!
What results should I expect?
Benefits such as pain relief and detoxification can be noticed after one session. It’s important to note that everybody is different, although some may share similar results, each infrared session is a truly unique experience. Why? We are all unique! Additionally, the condition of our bodies varies day, by day and more sweat may be produced during one session than another. For example, you and your workout buddy may see different results while doing the same workouts but it doesn’t mean you’re doing it wrong! It may take multiple sessions to see the desired weight loss results.
What should you expect during an Infrared treatment?
You are physically in the wrap for about 45-50 minutes. Your technician will check on you throughout the entire process to ensure your comfort. You will gradually build a deep sweat all while laying down and relaxing. Many of our clients pair the Infrared Wrap with Laser i-lipo to maximize their results.

- Bring a change of clothes to wear after your session. You will perspire quite a bit and will want something to change into after your wrap.
- Bring a bottle of water. It is recommended you drink water before during and after your session to replenish any fluids lost through sweating.
