What is the best way for women to lose weight?
There are many answers that include:
Eating less carbs
These are all standard across the board things that work for most, but we believe in personalising it more. We know that exercise is part of weight loss, but we encourage low impact exercise that promotes detoxing and lymphatic drainage. Infrared technology also increases calorie burn without causing stress in the body. Eliminating stress and allowing the body to revive increases weight loss by 3x traditional exercise.
How does infrared help weight loss?
Current research shows behaviour change techniques are now critical to weight management programs.
Infrared saunas and heat therapies are beautiful, enjoyable experiences using infrared light to heat your body from the inside instead of heating the air. Infrared saunas can do more for the body’s health in a more pleasant environment.
Clinical studies, prove you can burn as much as 600 calories in one infrared sauna session. That's roughly equivalent to jogging or swimming for an hour. Not only do you burn calories, but it assists in boosting your metabolism, removes toxins, increases collagen production, aids pain relief and improves cellulite.
Is infrared safe?
Yes infrared is 100% safe. Compared to the “heat of the sun” Far Infrared panels do not emit ultraviolet. Ultraviolet is on the “high energy” side of the Electromagnetic spectrum and is associated with the harmful effects of exposure to the sun. At the opposite end of the spectrum, infrared is on the “low energy” side of the Electromagnetic spectrum and does not have any of the harmful characteristics of Ultraviolet. Far infrared, the gentlest form of infrared, is often used in incubators for babies.
The therapy is safe and natural, which enables it to be offered as an alternative treatment for various health conditions like muscle pain, joint stiffness, and arthritis, to name a few. Infrared therapy has many roles in the human body. These include detoxification, pain relief, reduction of muscle tension, relaxation, improved circulation, weight loss, skin purification, lowered side effects of diabetes, boosting of the immune system and lowering of blood pressure.
Can I get rid of cellulite?
90% of women have cellulite and it is caused by many different things. It is trapped fat that doesn’t respond to normal exercise. Utilising technology that is safe and natural, includes gentle exercise, lymphatic drainage and infrared helps reduce cellulite by 80%. Increasing circulation in the lower half of the body with vacuum compression allows the blood flow and toxin release to be improved.
Allowing the infrared to penetrate helps to loosen the fat and with the combined pressure of the vacuum technology allows it to be removed naturally from your body. We have seen with our methods a 3x quicker improvement, than through traditional ways of exercise.
Is it safe to exercise after having a baby?
Yes it is safe to exercise after having a baby. But you should also allow your body to rest and recover for 8-12 weeks before you do. We utilise the benefits of a horizontal bike to work on repairing and strengthening your tummy muscles and pelvic floor. The added benefit of infrared helps the body to heal, burn calories quickly, and our vacuum technology helps realign your muscles and improve lymphatic drainage which eliminates fatty acids. The answer to awesome results is not to overdo it – less is best.
How long is a session and programs?
Our programs work on 30 minute or 60-minute appointments depending on your chosen program, 3x per week.
Depending on your package it could be 6-12 weeks.
When should I see results?
You will be weighed and measured every 2 weeks where results will be apparent. Most clients will lose more than a dress size in under 4 weeks.
How to lose weight in menopause?
Hormone changes, stress, and the aging process can all work against you. However, there are several steps you can take to make weight loss easier during this time.

We will analyse all the above information and customise the right exercise, eating and resting plan to allow your hormones to be controlled and excited about weight loss and wellness.
Can I lose belly fat?
Yes you can. Belly fat comes from hormonal shifts, poor eating, genetics and sometimes even bad posture. Sit ups and extreme exercise doesn’t assist you.

And you only need to do 30 minutes, 3x per week.
