What to expect during an infrared body wrap treatment?

During a far infrared treatment, you may stay clothed in loose fitting cotton clothing (long sleeve shirt and long pants). You will relax on a table while we wrap treatment pads around your body’s target areas such as thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, and arms.

Your session is in a private treatment room where you relax for about an hour while the Formostar system does the work.

Drinking plenty of water is highly recommended to release toxins and replenish fluids.

What is the technology behind far infrared wraps?

Far infrared heat increases the body's molecular vibration by vibrating the cell structure to help break the connections between deposits, such as fats and toxins, generating heat which is absorbed through the skin. Continuous vibration of the body's molecules does the following:

  • Increases skin temperature
  • Enlarges blood vessels
  • Stimulates blood circulation
  • Activates metabolism in tissues and cells

This process provides therapeutic and tissue regenerative properties when humans absorb the energy.

The ergonomically-designed silicone pads of the Formostar Encore system provide Far Infrared heat generation to an Active Carbon Fiber Matrix contained within the pads - providing even distribution of the infrared heat across the surface of the silicone wraps.
