Some benefits of infrared heat include: Cellulite Reduction Inch Loss Body Contouring Increased Metabolism Pain Relief Skin Rejuvenation When we accumulate body fat, blood circulation becomes worse. With lack of blood circulation, we cannot metabolize or burn body fat. In addition, very little heat is being circulated to that part of your body. When we take away the heat from that area of your body and it cools, the fat then turns from subcutaneous fat into cellulite. Subcutaneous fat is very soft and easy to lose. Cellulite is almost like hard muscle that is hardened from lack of blood circulation. The purpose of the Formostar Body Wrap System is to apply heat to the body in order to get underneath the fat tissue and thin the blood to allow it to get into the areas where fat tissue exists. Bringing the blood back into the areas that have had restricted blood flow causes the metabolism rates to rise. The heat softens the fat tissue causing it to break up and be released into the blood stream in the form of calories to be burned up as energy. When we have an excess of calories, the body stores them as fat. The Formostar Body Wrap System reverses this process by breaking the fat down into calories and placing them back into the blood stream to be used as energy. You can burn over 1,200 calories or more with just one 50-minute Formostar Body Wrap System Treatment. Your body will burn off those calories throughout the day. The Formostar Body Wrap System is a very natural non-invasive infrared light therapy processes that reduces body fat, removes stored toxins and enhances body metabolism, resulting in tighter, smoother looking-skin and a streamlined form without sacrificing the curves your clients want to keep. Target specific body shaping, cellulite reduction, skin rejuvenation and a better overall sense of enhanced well being is exactly what your clients are seeking, and they will reward your spa with their customer loyalty, their testimonials and their referrals. Formostar’s primary goal for pain relief is to increase tissue temperature with a corresponding increase in blood flow to deeper tissue, plus an increase in muscle temperature. In turn, this provides increased nutrition at a cellular level, reduction of edema and removal of metabolites and products of the inflammatory process. This process can be particularly helpful with people that suffer joint problems such as rheumatoid arthritis, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia by creating an analgesic effect. The Formostar was developed for therapeutic purposes – mainly rheumatoid arthritis and joint mobility. Heat is a well-known treatment for pain relief with Far Infrared heat lamps being used by the Asians for a long time. Because the heat is absorbed around 4.5 cm’s below the surface, it helps blood vessels dilate (expand), bringing relief and aiding the healing process of muscle and soft tissue injuries such as sprains, strains, arthritis, muscle spasm and many other muscular-skeletal ailments. Increased blood circulation not only carries off metabolic waste products but also delivers oxygen rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles to help promote faster recovery. The heat also deadens the nerve endings creating an analgesic effect.
