The Leading Edge of Pain Relief
by: Kathleen Coe
The McGraw/Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology says, "Medical practitioners make use of Infrared Radiant Heat to treat sprains, strains, bursitis, peripheral vascular disease, arthritis and muscle pain..."
Pain expert Peter Vicente, PhD, past president of the American Pain Society and Clinical Health Psychologist, River Hills Health Care, Cincinnati, OH says that for centuries, health care providers have used topical heat to relieve minor aches and pains, but today health care providers are just beginning to understand the full range of therapeutic benefits that heat offers. Quoting Dr. Vicente further, "Through new clinical research, we have found that heat activates complex neurological, vascular and metabolic mechanisms to meditate the transmission of pain signals and effectively provide relief for a variety of pain conditions."
Health benefits described above are found in the form of Infrared Body Wraps.Infrared Body Wraps eliminate the potential awkwardness of normal body wraps done without the client wearing clothes. The Infrared Body Wrap system is applied over long sleeve T-shirts and loose cotton sweats or jeans. The procedure is done on top of the clients clothing. Six silicone wrap pads are used, targeting specific areas of the body. The arms, waist, stomach, thighs, can all be targeted. Blood circulation improves and pain is eliminated. There is pain relief without medication. Arthritis sufferers take note!
Infrared heat provided by the Infrared Body Wrap penetrates twice as deep as normal heat treatments, getting to toxins and cellulite. The penetration is 1.5 inches deep into muscular tissues and reaches joints and ligaments where pain resides. The infrared waves steadily circulate the blood, removing blockages in the blood vessels. This technology is leading the way in the care of soft tissue injuries to promote both relief in chronic cases and accelerated healing in newer injuries. The infrared heat goes straight through the skin and right to the bone. That is why it is used for sports injuries. When a muscle is damaged, the heat goes right to the bone and promotes blood circulation, which alleviates pain.
Infrared Body Wrap treatments provide pain management benefits and enhanced healing. Infrared heat is used for sports injuries, back pain, arthritis and much more. Infrared heat is helpful in treatment of:
... Sciatica ... shoulder pain ... cramp relief
...Arthritis ... muscle spasms ... poor blood circulation
... Fatigue ... whiplash ... menopause
... Backaches ... rheumatism ... immune response
Additionally, Infrared Body Wrap will help in the treatment of acne, eczema, and psoriasis. By exposure to these infrared waves that steadily circulate the blood, blockages in the blood vessels are removed, and it allows for proper oxygen distribution to all parts of the body.
A feeling of well-being is created. While it is impossible to avoid stresses in your life, Infrared Body Wrap treatments will help you manage the stress.
