The Kontur body wrap uses infrared thermal energy to rejuvenate, relax, and detoxify the body. These body wraps can also be used to relieve muscles tension and pain from arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other types of chronic pain. A session in a Kontur body wrap is akin to a session in a sauna, but is far more effective due to the ability of the energy to deeply penetrate the tissues.
How it Works
Kontur body wraps were developed in Germany and have been extensively clinically tested. The wraps consist of high-density silicone bandages that transmit Far-infrared thermal energy into the body. The wavelength of energy produced by the Kontur device is the ideal wavelength for deep absorption into the human body. The wraps transmit the therapeutic energy to the body, where it deeply penetrates the muscles, tendons, and joints. The Kontur system consists of six body wraps and a device that generates the Far-infrared energy and transmits it to the wraps.
The energy produced by the Kontur body wraps penetrates deeply into the body, improving circulation and boosting the metabolism. These effects encourage the body to release built-up toxins into the bloodstream. The body then releases these toxins into the sweat that is released from the heat.
What to Expect
During a treatment, six different Kontur body wraps are applied to the body, covering around 50% of the body surface. The wraps are wired to the control device that generates the Far-infrared thermal energy. Individual problem areas can easily receive extra energy by simply adjusting the controls. A typical treatment lasts for around 60 minutes. The patient lies quietly, relaxing and enjoying the whole-body therapeutic experience.
In addition to driving toxins out of the body, the Kontur body wrap loosens and relaxes over-worked muscles. It can also help tighten and tone the skin and body and accelerate the metabolism for hours after treatment, promoting weight loss. Kontur body wraps are excellent for treating chronic pain from fibromyalgia and arthritis.
How to Prepare and Recover
During a Kontur body wrap treatment, large amounts of sweat are lost as the toxins are carried out of the body. In order to detox successfully and safely, it is essential to drink a large amount of water before the treatment to provide fuel to carry out the toxins. After the procedure, in order to replace the water lost during the treatment, it is also encouraged to drink a large amount of water. Symptoms of dehydration include headache and nausea, which can be avoided if proper preparation is exercised.
