Wearing a body wrap is the third most popular way people burn calories, after jump-roping in a sauna and free-styling insults at their thighs. Shed excess pounds with today's Groupon: for $59, you get two infrared body wraps at Luna Fitness in Tempe (a $150 value).
Luna Fitness is a comprehensive health club for women where classes and spa treatments help clients understand how to take care of their bodies. During the one-hour infrared body-wrap treatment, fully clothed clients don the pads of the Formostar wrap, which bombard the body with infrared rays that can burn up to 1,400 calories per session. As blood returns to previously barren vascular highways, it can increase metabolism and capture now-liberated fat cells, whisking them away as the high tide does to sand sculptures of The Thinker. In addition to trimming down and tightening physiques, the wrap can lessen the appearance of cellulite and reduces stress. Because the body wrap causes a rise in body temperature, patients should be sure to hydrate before, during, and after each session to avoid cramping, and the treatment is not suitable for women who are currently pregnant.
Luna Fitness recommends the clients bring a change of clothes for postwrap comfort, and customers should wear all-cotton long-sleeve shirts and long pants free of metal snaps, buttons, or the limbs of a mannequin. To pass the time, clients are welcome to bring a book or DVD to the treatment.
