What Is Far Infrared (FIR)?

Far InfraredFIR infrared ray energy is a part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight without the skin damaging UV rays. Aware of it’s health benefits, NASA, has utilized this heat for years and in Asia and Europe it has already revolutionized health and beauty products.

FIR has the ability to penetrate, refract, radiate & reflect. The human body is able to absorb FIR because of it’s ability to penetrate through the skin into the subcutaneous tissues where it transforms from light energy into heat energy. The thermal effect within the deep layers of tissue causes blood vessels in capillaries to dilate, promoting better blood circulation, and the heat produced helps to get rid of body toxins and metabolic wastes through sweating. This dilation of vascular and peripheral blood vessels, brings oxygen to joints and extremities, relaxing stiff muscles which helps to speed the healing of sprains and strains. The increased blood flow enables aching and injured muscles to recover faster along with the added benefit of aiding metabolic and toxic waste to be purged from the body through the skin during perspiration.
In Chinese medicine the skin is known as the third kidney because it is believed to be responsible for eliminating up to 30% of body waste. All of the increased blood circulation during infrared therapy causes great amounts of nutrients to be carried to the skin, promoting a healthy tone and texture along with a mile cleansing.

What The Researchers Say About FIR

Infrared energy is not only beneficial to our health, but very safe to use. Far Infrared lamps are used to aid in the relief of arthritis, joint pain, stiff muscles, injuries to tendons and ligaments and to promote a faster overall “self-body” healing effect.

Infrared heat is “RADIANT” heat. Radiant heat is simply a form of energy that heats objects directly through a process called conversion without having to heat the air in between.
Radiant heat is also called Infrared Energy (IR). The infrared segment of the electromagnetic spectrum cannot be seen, but can be perceived as heat. Our atmosphere has a “window” in it that allows IR rays in the 7-14 micron range to safely reach the earth’s surface. When warmed, the earth radiates infrared rays in the 7-14 micron band with its peak output at 10 microns.

According to Dr. Tsu-Tsair Oliver Chi, in his summation on the mechanism of actions of infrared devices turned to the human body, tissues needing a boost in their output selectively absorb these rays. The internal production of the infrared energy that normally occurs within our tissues is associated with a variety of responses and may require a boost to a maximal level to insure the fullest response possible in a tissue, which is being repaired. After boosting a tissue’s level to its maximum, the remaining rays pass onward harmlessly. This phenomenon is called “RESONANT ABSORPTION”.

Regular use of an (infrared) sauna … may be as effective as a means of cardiovascular condition and burning of calories as regular exercise. (Journal of the American Medical Association 8/7/1981)

The Sudatonic™ System Forces The Body To Cleanse Itself!

The Sudatonic™ Infrared System helps to improve circulation by forcing the body to use stored fat mass as energy to fuel the body. Sudatonic starts with the application of a barrier cream which is formulated to make sweating difficult. Fat cells are then forced to release fatty acids in order to provide the energy needed to push perspiration through the body.

Why Would You Want To Sweat So Much, And What’s The Big Deal?

Many people, simply don’t sweat enough…

making sweat bathing particularly desirable during these times. Antiperspirants, artificial environments, smog, synthetic clothing, and a physically idle lifestyle all conspire to clog skin pores and inhibit the health flow of sweat. These detrimental effects can be reversed in a sweat bath.

Sweat also has the function of being a judicious garbage collector. During a 15 minute sauna, sweating can perform the heavy metal excretion that would take the kidneys 24 working hours. Ninety-nine percent (99%) of what sweat brings to the surface of the skin is water, but the remaining one percent (1%) is mostly undesirable wastes. Excessive salt carried by sweat is generally believed to be beneficial for cases of mild hypertension. Some mental hospitals use saunas in their rehabilitation programs to pacify patients. A metabolic by-product, urea, if not disposed of regularly, can cause headaches, nausea and in extreme cases, vomiting, coma and even death.

Sweating is such an effective de-toxifier that that it draws out lactic acid which causes stiff muscles and contributes to general fatigue. Sweat flushes out toxic metals such as copper, lead, zinc, and mercury, which the body absorbs in polluted environments.

This innovative slimming and detox system takes advantage of FAR infrared light for its unique body penetrating ability. This 4 zone system uses radiant heat to improve blood and lymph circulation, allowing oxygen and nutrients to be more efficiently absorbed and utilized. Because this light can penetrate, refract, radiate, and reflect it can push past the subcutaneous tissues and be perceived as heat by the body to increase circulation as well as reactivate normal cell function.

the sudatonic systemThe Sudatonic System is 7x more effective than a traditional sauna, speeding up the natural process of toxin elimination through perspiration. The barrier cream that is used is made primarily of essential oils and is massaged into the skin prior to the wrap. This cream makes it more difficult for the body to perspire. In turn, the lipocytes (fat cells) are forced to release the fatty acids that provide the extra energy needed to push perspiration through the skins surface, depleting stored fat. Once the body has reached the desired temperature, the cardiovascular and metabolic rates rise, and the heart can receive a workout similar to a 6 mile run that just 30 min in the Sudatonic wrap can provide, and up to 4,000 calories can be burned.

With repeated use, the stimulated circulation also improves hormone absorption so the body can better communicate with itself, and among many other benefits, create a natural equilibrium between fat storage and fat elimination. Skin tone, elasticity, and cellulite also benefit greatly from the increased oxygen and nutrients. Some skin conditions can be alleviated with regular use like psoriasis, eczema, and acne. This deeply relaxing treatment is also great for stress relief, sore joints, and stiff muscles. You will leave invigorated and renewed.

FAQ Sudatonic Infrared Radiant Wrap

Q: Is it new?
A: Infrared has been in use in Europe for more than 10 years and in the States for over 5 now … millions of treatments have been performed.

Q: Is it painful?
A: No, not at all. Infrared is a soothing, healing heat source. The intensity of your treatment is regulated by the therapist and generates a feeling of warmth, comfort and relaxation. Most clients fall asleep during their wrap.

Q: Does it help with cellulite?
A: Cellulite is primarily water-logged, toxin-ridden fatty tissue areas. Cellulite is a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and toxic waste, which are trapped in pockets below the skin. Due to at least twice the depth of heat penetration into cellulite combined with up to 10 times the level of heating in these tissues, Infrared can be significantly more effective for flushing of these toxic build-up areas than any other conventional heat treatment. Profuse sweating helps clear this form of unwanted debris from the body.
As the toxins are released during the wrap, the fluid used to suspend those impurities will also be released. The less debris stored and the less fluid retained to suspend the particles, the less lumpiness under the surface of the skin. Your skin will have a smoother and flatter appearance as your body releases these impurities.

Q: Do I need a Doctors permission?
A: If you are on medication or have a physical or medical condition, please talk to your doctor and get clearance.

Q: How much will I lose?
A: Total inch loss is determined by comparing before wrap to after wrap measurements taken over your entire Body. Things that influence your personal success and results include hydration, body chemistry, lifestyle, medications, weight and age. There is no inch loss guarantee or weight loss guarantee of any kind.

Q: Will I need more than one wrap?
A: If you are trying to reach a certain size, trying to reduce the appearance of cellulite or if you are trying to tighten loose skin that is a result from weight loss, then you should come in once or twice a week until your goals are reached.

Q: How long will the inches stay off?
A: Body Wraps work by eliminating the excessive accumulations of toxins and fluids stored under the skin. Most people experience inch reduction for 3 to 6 months, assuming of course they don’t gain weight. Maintenance wraps once every month or two will keep and accentuate your inch loss as you will detoxify with each wrap.

Q: What is Far Infrared (FIR)?
A: FIR infrared ray energy is a part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight, minus the skin damaging UV. FIR Heat Therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry greater amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone, texture, and mild skin cleansing.

Q: How does the Sudatonic™ Radiant Wrap work?
A: Step 1 in the Sudatonic™ Infrared system creates a barrier on the skin, called the “second skin”, that when combined with the Far Infrared Blanket forces the body to convert stored fat into the “extra” energy required for perspiration to break through the “second skin”.

Q: How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System provide the same effects of exercise?
A: In a 20-30 minute session, the body receives a workout similar to a 6-mile run and perspires the same amount as a 6-mile run. Sudatonic™ is ideal for those who do not have time for regular exercise.

Q: How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System control weight?
A: Perspiring is part of the complex thermo-regulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. The process requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water soluble at 110 degrees Fahrenheit.

Q: How does the Sudatonic™ Infrared System improve the immune system?
A: Most illnesses are accompanied by a fever. The body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. This rise in temperature is one of the best ways to rid the body of chemicals and unwanted bacterial growth. Far infrared heat induces an “artificial fever” by heating up the body without the pains of an illness. As a result, the body protects itself much more easily because the immune system is activated by the “artificial fever”.

Preparing for a wrap

Sudatonic Body Wrap

Q: Is there anything special I should do when getting a Sudatonic™ body wrap?
A: Please be sure to eat a full high protein, low carb meal 60-90 minutes prior to treatment and drink 4-6 glasses of water during the day until your appointment time. Eating is not recommended during the 3 hours following the treatment.

Q: How should I prepare?
A: Please make sure your body is adequately hydrated. Drink plenty of water for a couple of days prior to your wrap and plan to sip water continually throughout the rest of the day after your body wrap to continue the flushing process.

Q: What do I need to wear?
A: Women need to bring a change of undergarments, panties and bra. You will want to change into dry undergarments after your body wrap. You may also choose to be wrapped in a bikini.

Q: What about soaps, oils and lotions before the body wrap?
A: It is best to not use any lotions or oils on your skin the day of your body wrap. Mineral oils and lotions and some other oils will reduce the efficacy of the essential oils used in the body wrap lessening your results.

Q: How much time should I allow?
A: The entire process takes approx. 90 minutes.

Q: How often can I get a body wrap?
A: The body wrap is a safe and effective process that may be done as often as you wish. For inch loss results, we have found that a series of 6 to 12 wraps-performed once or twice a week gives most clients the best results. Waiting too long in between wraps means that each wrap is just detoxifying your body from what was introduced since your last wrap. By getting wraps closer together your results are cumulative. If you are losing weight, a continuing series of treatments will show results and help tighten the skin to your new shape. For maintenance we recommend coming in every 6-8 weeks, this helps to clear your body of toxins and decrease the need for storing fat.

Q: How long does it last?
A: As long as you maintain your weight (or lose weight), the lost inches will stay off if you lead a very clean lifestyle. Bear in mind that in everyday life we continue to take in toxins through chemicals and preservatives absorbed daily through the air we breathe, the foods and drinks we consume, and the products we use on our bodies. As previously noted, the wrap is removing toxins, so introducing toxic substances back into your body could reverse the effects.
During your post-consultations we give instructions to help maintain your results. We recommend reducing the amounts of toxins and reducing or avoiding salt, sugar, fried foods, alcohol, caffeine and other highly toxic foods. Regular exercise will also delay the re-toxification process and prolong your inch-loss results.
We recommend drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day, especially on the days following each wrap to continue the detoxification process through the body’s natural elimination system. Flushing your system this way will ultimately aid in detoxification and weight loss.

Contraindications for Sudatonic Wraps

Prescription Drugs: If you are using prescription drugs, check with your physician or pharmacist for possible changes in the drug’s effect due to an interaction with infrared energy.

Certain Ailments: According to some authorities, it is considered inadvisable to raise the core temperature of someone with adrenal suppression, systemic lupus erythematosus, or multiple sclerosis.

Joint Problems: If a person has a recent (acute) joint injury, it should not be heated for the first 48 hours or until the hot and swollen symptoms subside. Joints that are chronically hot and swollen may respond poorly to vigorous heating of any kind. Vigorous heating is strictly contraindicated in cases of enclosed infections be they dental, in joints, or in any other tissues.

Pregnancy: In pregnancy or the suspicion of pregnancy, discontinuation of sauna use is recommended.

Surgical Implants: Metal pins, rods, artificial joints, or any other surgical implants generally reflect infrared rays and are not heated by an infrared heat system. Nevertheless, a person should consult his or her surgeon before receiving such therapy. Certainly infrared therapy must be discontinued if a person experiences pain near any implants.

Silicone: Silicone does absorb infrared energy. Implanted silicone or silicone prostheses for nose or ear replacement may be warmed by infrared rays. Since silicone melts at over 200 degrees Celsius, it should not be adversely effected by an infrared heat system. However, it is still advised that a person checks with his or her surgeon, and possibly a representative of the product manufacturer, to be certain. There is no infrared across the chest area so breast implants are not affected by our infrared blanket.

Menstruation: Heating of the low-back area of women during the menstrual period may temporarily increase menstrual flow. Once a woman is aware that this is occurring, she can choose to allow herself to experience this short-term effect without worry. Or she may simply avoid using an infrared heat source at that time in her cycle.

Hemorrhage: Hemophiliacs and anyone predisposed to hemorrhage should avoid infrared usage or any type of heating that would induce vasodilation that can lead to the tendency to bleed.

Worsened Condition: Should any condition worsen with the use of an infrared heat system, the use of the system should be discontinued.

Pain: Pain should not be experienced when using an infrared heat system. If one does, the use of radiant heat is clearly inappropriate for the person at that time.
