Frequently Asked Questions



Pittsburgh Infrared Body Wraps Important Information
Virtually everyone can gain benefit from Infrared. However, sessions should not be undertaken unless patients have received their Doctor's advice where any of the following conditions exist: Over activity of the thyroid gland, cardiac infarction, cardiac weakness, constriction of the coronary blood vessels, marked high or low blood pressure, diabetes requiring insulin treatment, disturbances to the function of the kidneys and associated organs, fever, severe general infection, contact allergies, skin diseases, open wounds, newly acquired shingles, pregnancy, prescribed medicines causing increased sensitivity to physical stimulation (for example antibiotics), cases of severe varicose veins. As always, if any doubt exists, it is recommended that clients seek their doctor's or health practitioner's advice.
You should wear heavy weight, natural cotton fiber, long sleeve top and calf-length pants. Thin, synthetic fiber clothing can conduct too much heat to be comfortable for most. All areas being treated should be covered during your session. Drink plenty of water before, during and after each treatment to avoid dehydration. Do not use any other form of infrared heat same day as body wrap such as tanning, etc.

The solvent for important biochemical reactions, supplying nutrients and removing waste. Essential for maintaining blood circulation throughout your body.

  The maintainer of body temperature. As you get your body wrap, your metabolism and your internal body temperature increase.  
  The most essential nutrient: water  
Nutrients don't only come in the form of food; water is the most important, and often most forgotten, nutrient. You can last for some time without food, but only days without water. Your lean body mass contains about 70 percent to 75 percent water, with fat containing much less: about 10 percent to 40 percent water. Because of increased muscle mass, men's and athletes' bodies contain more water than bodies with proportionately lower muscle and higher fat, such as non-athletic women, people who are overweight and people who are older.

On average men need 3.7 liters of fluids per day, women need 2.7 liters. All fluids count, including milk, juice, coffee, tea, and even water-rich foods. Thirst and urine color might be better guidelines for staying hydrated. Weather, activity level, illness, and age can all impact water needs. Do you aim for a daily allotment or just drink when you're thirsty? How much water do you drink per day?

  During a 50-minute Infrared Body Wrap Treatment, you can burn up to 1,400 calories and continue to burn calories for up to 24 hours afterwards due to an elevated metabolism! The amount of calories burned during one session will vary from person to person depending on their size, but calories will be burned as if you had exercised. Your metabolism will also be stimulated for at least 24 to 36 hours after a treatment. This means that your body will be burning calories at a higher rate for the next several days after using one treatment. Best results will be by using an Infrared Body Wrap Treatment at least twice per week. And drinks plenty of water before and after each treatment.
