What is Infrared Therapy?
Infrared energy, without which life could not exist on this planet, penetrates the surface of the skin. This is possible because the vibration produced by infrared energy is exactly identical to that of water, which makes up 75% of our bodies. The fact that these two entities resonate at the same frequency allows our bodies to absorb up to 93% of the infrared energy and utilize it to maintain and improve our health.
Rehab Body Lab's exclusive Wellness Cocoon is a state of the art infrared experience that Halifax residents have fallen in love with!
By heating the body, sweat glands are activated as the body seeks to cool itself. In doing so, the body creates a profound sweating response, which encourages the natural removal of impurities and a healthy cardiovascular response. Additionally, heating the body promotes physical fitness by assisting with weight loss goals and maintaining a healthy weight - you can burn up to 300-600 calories per session! Continued use will assist in increasing a slowed metabolism.
Infrared Bike / Elliptical
The infrared elliptical bike works on much the same premise as the wellness cocoon and incorporates the benefits of infrared therapy and exercise.
The infrared works to reduce the impact of physical exertion on your muscles, reduce recovery time and increase cell turnover while you burn calories. The increased heat also helps to increase blood flow and make you sweat more, aiding in calorie and fat loss while you pedal.
