What does a THALASSOTHERAPY treatment do?
THALASSOTHERAPY is based on the traditions of European thalassotherapy, which includes a fresh 'AROMABODY TREATMENT', of your choice above, that is warmed to body temperature and then smoothed over the body.
The body is then wrapped in a warm, thermal blanket to help relieve stress and invigorate sore, stiff muscles. A rain shower completes this experience, leaving you newly recharged and balanced.

The Infrared Body Wrap System is a system that uses short and long infrared waves to create a condition known as "Thermolypolysis". Using either the ThermoJet Infrared Body Wrap technology or the Infrared Blanket the infrared filaments bathe you evenly with deep, penetrating heat. You will see and feel the difference after just one session! The purpose of this infrared body wrap is to get heat into the body, thin the blood, bring metabolism back into the "cold spots" and melt the fat tissue down. Like heating butter in a frying pan, it liquifies the fat, converts it to calories and puts it back into the blood stream so your body can convert it into energy.
Infared Body Wrap Treatments are very comfortable and relaxing.
Thermolipolysis occurs when the body, being heated from the inside out, is no longer able to cool itself through perspiration. It is in this state when the body is forced to spend it's stock of excess fat and water reserves. The increased thermolipolytic action of infrared works from the deep fat layers to the superficial tissue layers (dermis). The breakdown of fats into a more liquid form allows the secretion of excess bodily water, toxins, and fat as you perspire.
This treatment is different from other 'wrap' treatments that only allow for elimination of excess water.
As you relax in the "surround-sound" heat, being provided by the infrared wrap system, your body is actually hard at work producing sweat, pumping blood, and burning calories. According to The Journal of the American Medical Association, in a single infrared wrap session you may burn as many calories as you would rowing or jogging for 30 minutes. The heat that it creates will help increase a person's metabolism for the next 24 to 36 hours. So basically you burn calories not only during your wrap, but for at least a day to a day and a half afterwards!
Can it replace a diet? Never!!! A sensible diet can help you maintain a healthy weight. Infrared acts effectively on targetting those stubborn areas that diet and exercise just don't seem to be able to reach.
Is the treatment specifically for women? NO, definitely not!! Both men and women can benefit with the Infrared Body Wrap treatments.
Heat Therapy for Pain Relief:
Q: Is it new?
A: Infrared has been in use in Europe for more than 25 years and in the States for over 15 now … millions of treatments have been performed.
Q: Is it painful?
A: No, not at all. Infrared is a soothing, healing heat source. The intensity of your treatment is regulated by the therapist and generates a feeling of warmth, comfort and relaxation. Most clients fall asleep during their wrap.
Q: Does it help with cellulite?
A: Cellulite is primarily water-logged, toxin-ridden fatty tissue areas. Cellulite is a gel-like substance made up of fat, water and toxic waste, which are trapped in pockets below the skin. Due to at least twice the depth of heat penetration into cellulite combined with up to 10 times the level of heating in these tissues, Infrared can be significantly more effective for flushing of these toxic build-up areas than any other conventional heat treatment. Profuse sweating helps clear this form of unwanted debris from the body.
As the toxins are released during the wrap, the fluid used to suspend those impurities will also be released. The less debris stored and the less fluid retained to suspend the particles, the less lumpiness under the surface of the skin. Your skin will have a smoother and flatter appearance as your body releases these impurities.
Q: Do I need a Doctors permission?
A: If you are on medication or have a physical or medical condition, please talk to your doctor and get clearance.
Q: Will I need more than one wrap?
A: If you are trying to reach a certain size, trying to reduce the appearance of cellulite or if you are trying to tighten loose skin that is a result from weight loss, then you should come in twice a week until your goals are reached.
Q: How long will the inches stay off?
A: Body Wraps work by eliminating the excessive accumulations of toxins and fluids stored under the skin. Most people experience inch reduction for 3 to 6 months, assuming of course they don’t gain weight. Maintenance wraps once every month or two will keep and accentuate your inch loss as you will detoxify with each wrap.
Q: What is Far Infrared (FIR)?
A: FIR infrared ray energy is a part of the natural light spectrum of sunlight, minus the skin damaging UV. FIR Heat Therapy allows increased blood circulation to carry greater amounts of nutrients to the skin, thus promoting healthy tone, texture, and mild skin cleansing.
Q: How does the Radiant Wrap work?
A: Step 1 in the Infrared system creates a barrier on the skin, called the “second skin”, that when combined with the Far Infrared Blanket forces the body to convert stored fat into the “extra” energy required for perspiration to break through the “second skin”.
Q: How does the Infrared System provide the same effects of exercise?
A: In a 60 minute session, the body receives a workout similar to a 6-mile run and perspires the same amount as a 6-mile run. It is ideal for those who do not have time for regular exercise.
Q: How does the Infrared System control weight?
A: Perspiring is part of the complex thermo-regulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate. The process requires a large amount of energy and reduces excess moisture, salt and subcutaneous fat. Fat becomes water soluble at 110 degrees Fahrenheit.
Q: How does theInfrared System improve the immune system?
A: Most illnesses are accompanied by a fever. The body heats up to eliminate viruses and attack foreign agents. This rise in temperature is one of the best ways to rid the body of chemicals and unwanted bacterial growth. Far infrared heat induces an “artificial fever” by heating up the body without the pains of an illness. As a result, the body protects itself much more easily because the immune system is activated by the “artificial fever”.
Preparing for a wrap
Q: Is there anything special I should do when getting a body wrap?
A: Please be sure to eat a full high protein, low carb meal 60-90 minutes prior to treatment and drink 4-6 glasses of water during the day until your appointment time. Eating is not recommended during the 3 hours following the treatment. Do not run or exercise, or use a treadmill for at least 4 hours after the treatment.
Q: How should I prepare?
A: Please make sure your body is adequately hydrated. Drink plenty of water for a couple of days prior to your wrap and plan to sip water continually throughout the rest of the day after your body wrap to continue the flushing process.
Q: What do I need to wear?
A: Women need to bring a change of undergarments, panties and bra. You will want to change into dry undergarments after your body wrap. You're welcome to shower before and/or after the wrap at Mezz Spa.
Q: What about soaps, oils and lotions before the body wrap?
A: It is best to not use any lotions or oils on your skin the day of your body wrap. Mineral oils and lotions and some other oils will reduce the efficacy of the essential oils used in the body wrap lessening your results.
Q: How much time should I allow?
A: The entire process takes approx. 60 minutes.
Q: How often can I get a body wrap?
A: The body wrap is a safe and effective process that may be done as often as you wish. For inch loss results, we have found that a series of 6 to 12 wraps-performed twice or three times a week gives most clients the best results. Waiting too long in between wraps means that each wrap is just detoxifying your body from what was introduced since your last wrap. By getting wraps closer together your results are cumulative. If you are losing weight, a continuing series of treatments will show results and help tighten the skin to your new shape. For maintenance we recommend coming in every 6-8 weeks, this helps to clear your body of toxins and decrease the need for storing fat.
Q: How long does it last?
A: As long as you maintain your weight (or lose weight), the lost inches will stay off if you lead a very clean lifestyle. Bear in mind that in everyday life we continue to take in toxins through chemicals and preservatives absorbed daily through the air we breathe, the foods and drinks we consume, and the products we use on our bodies. As previously noted, the wrap is removing toxins, so introducing toxic substances back into your body could reverse the effects.
During your post-consultations we give instructions to help maintain your results. We recommend reducing the amounts of toxins and reducing or avoiding salt, sugar, fried foods, alcohol, caffeine and other highly toxic foods. Regular exercise will also delay the re-toxification process and prolong your inch-loss results.
We recommend drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day, especially on the days following each wrap to continue the detoxification process through the body’s natural elimination system. Flushing your system this way will ultimately aid in detoxification and weight loss.
