A Fitting Way to Lose Inches
Besides being a turning point for the seasons, the vernal equinox is the time when people really start noticing the weight they’ve put on over the winter, and begin trying to lose it before the summer solstice. Unfortunately, for many, those stubborn “holiday pounds” are still there when it’s time to shop for shorts and swimsuits. That causes a lot of fits – and mis-fits – in dressing rooms; and it doesn’t get any easier when summer holidays start adding to the problem!
Is infrared body wrap safe, and are there any potential side effects?
Infrared body wraps are generally considered safe for most people when used as directed by a trained professional. However, like any therapeutic treatment, there are potential side effects and considerations to be aware of:
- Dehydration: The heat generated during an infrared body wrap session can cause sweating, which may lead to dehydration if proper hydration is not maintained.
- Overheating: Prolonged exposure to high heat levels may cause overheating, especially in individuals who are sensitive to heat or have certain medical conditions.
- Dizziness or Fainting: Some individuals may experience dizziness or fainting due to the heat or dehydration. It is essential to take breaks and cool down if you feel lightheaded during the session.
- Skin Sensitivity: The infrared heat may cause skin sensitivity or irritation in some individuals. It’s important to inform the therapist of any skin conditions or sensitivities before the treatment.
- Pregnancy: Pregnant women should avoid using infrared body wraps, as the elevated body temperature may pose risks to the developing fetus.
Can pregnant women use infrared body wraps safely?
Pregnant women should avoid using infrared body wraps. Infrared body wraps involve exposing the body to elevated temperatures, which can cause an increase in core body temperature. During pregnancy, the body’s temperature regulation mechanisms are already affected, and a rise in core body temperature may pose risks to the developing fetus.
High body temperature during pregnancy, especially in the first trimester, has been associated with an increased risk of certain birth defects and developmental issues. It is crucial for pregnant women to avoid activities that can cause overheating, such as using saunas, hot tubs, or undergoing infrared body wrap treatments.
If you are pregnant and considering any form of heat therapy or body wrap, it is essential to consult with your healthcare provider before proceeding.
