iSWEAT LODGE SERVICES & PROCESS

INFRARED HEAT BODY WRAPS:

Infrared heat body wraps are used as a therapy to produce a number of health benefits. The body wrap uses infrared rays (FIR) to heat your body directly without warming the air around you. The Infrared rays produce an energy, also known as radiant heat, the natural light spectrum of sunlight, minus the harmful and skin damaging ultraviolet rays

The Infrared Heat Body Wrap is similar to a heated sleeping bag with your head exposed. You will be placed in your own area with privacy curtains and you will be will assisted getting in and out of the Infrared Heat Body Wrap. You will be provided headphones and a remote control to watch your favorite Netflix episode. We ask that you do not use your cell phone during the session.

 

The privacy curtains are closed once you begin your 55-minute detox. If you have come in with another person, we are more than happy to leave the curtains between the two areas open, but do ask for quiet conversation, as to not disturb others who are sweating.

The wrap will not get hot enough to burn your skin, since it is heated by FAR Infrared. The Infrared heat is absorbed into your body, versus the traditional sauna, which heats the area that you step into. These infrared waves of energy penetrate the surface of the skin and gently elevate the body’s temperature to a minimum of 107.6 Fahrenheit (42 Celsius). This starts to promote healing and other positive benefits for your body and well-being.Your body temperature is what increases and where the feeling of being "hot" comes from. Your heart rate will also increase during the detox, but at a slower, deeper rhythm than traditional exercise.  ​

​The first 20-to-30 minutes of the 55-minute detox is generally described as being "easy" and "cozy". Most feel that around the 35-to-40 minute mark, you will notice the heat, and your heart rate and sweating becomes more intense. We will check on you throughout the session and provide a chilled wet face cloth during those last 15 minutes of the detox to help push you through to the end of the session.

 

Your body is receiving the maximum benefits in those last 15-minutes and the goal is to try to stay in the wrap for the full 55-minutes. However, if at any time a level of discomfort takes place during the session, please notify the attendant to stop. Since your head is always outside of the Infrared Wrap, you can always take out your arms or legs if necessary to cool down. ​

Participants may feel dizzy and lightheaded after the session. So we recommend getting up slowly and taking a few moments to relax before changing. Before and after the detox, iSWEAT LODGE provides a refreshing glass of "Advanced Connective Tissue Formula Plus".  

 

​Finally, the sweat you experience during the Infrared Heat Body Wrap is different than the sweat you experience at the gym or exercising. It generally will have a different feel and smell on your skin, because it pulls out the deepest layer of toxins. You will notice you tend to stop sweating almost immediately after toweling off. Another common reaction is that people do not have that sense of feeling "sweaty" or "dirty" after the detox, so not showering directly after is not an issue for most. 

It is recommended to NOT shower for at least ONE hour after your sweat session. Your heart rate and metabolic rate is still at an elevated level and should slowly come down to your normal body temperature on its own. Your body is still receiving the benefits and burning calories for a few hours after you complete the sweat session.

WHOLE BODY VIBRATION :

Whole Body Vibration (WBV) can aid in weight loss, burn fat, improve flexibility, enhance blood flow, decrease the stress hormone cortisol, help metabolism, increase bone mineral density, and improve lymphatic flow. Another added benefit is the increase release of hormones that are important in the regeneration & repair processes of our bodies. WBV stimulates the body’s own healing response as well as stimulating the regeneration of healthy cells.

Whole Body Vibration exercise is a technology that uses a vibration platform centered on a recurrent change of position. When standing on the platform of the Whole Body Vibration machine, your muscles are stimulated to work by the stretch reflex. Muscles that are activated by the stretch reflex receive a number of benefits that you do not normally experience with regular exercise.

Our WBV machines have two types of vibration movements: oscillating and linear.  Click here to learn the differences between the movements.

 

​During the Whole Body Vibration experience, you stand on the plate and the vibrational energy is transferred to your entire body.  First, it stimulates receptors in the Achilles tendon up to nerve receptors, which then go up to the cerebellum (the part of the brain that is responsible for balance). This pleasant vibrating action causes the brain to tell the muscles to actively contract to maintain equilibrium, thus creating a therapeutic and muscle-toning workout. The stretch reflex ensures that all muscle fibers are being stimulated at one time. Your body automatically adapts to the vibrations, and the muscles respond by contracting to offset the stress it imposes. By just standing on the vibration plate, this produces effective results for your physical needs. 

For even better weight loss and toning results, we recommend incorporating exercise routines. You can try lifting weights, leg balances, stretches, push-ups and crunches. These additional exercises will enhance your experience and work your muscles up to four-times harder than standing on the flat ground. By using the Whole Body Vibration,  you are able maximize an exercise routine in a shorter time frame, plus receive additional benefits than simply going to a gym.

Whole Body Vibration is a vertical machine with a vibrating platform. Each vibration session is for 20-minutes or an available as a 10-minute add-on service to any infrared heat wrap. 

During the Vibration session you are free to stand, sit, balance or exercise on the vibration platform. You will receive benefits from the vibration, even if you choose to only stand or sit on the platform with minimal to no additional movement on your own.  For those who are more comfortable with their balance and stability on the platform, you can stretch or do exercises. At iSWEAT LODGE, we provide free weights, yoga mats and a slideshow that demonstrates additional exercises and variations of stretches that you can try.

A 10 to 20 minute exercise work-out on the Whole Body Vibration machine is equivalent to 1-hour at the gym doing the same exact routine!
