Heat up your Health: Thermal energy inch-loss sessions
You already know that your body sweats to cool you down. But sweating is also one of your body’s best ways to get rid of waste and pollutants. It’s faster than any other natural method of detox because it opens pores, so you can flush out impurities more efficiently. Revitalise and detoxify the body.
Saunas also improve circulation and oxygenate your tissues, too. And a sauna session can relieve stress, arthritis symptoms, and bring nutrients to the surface for younger-looking skin. In Ayurveda you may already be familiar with the “steam” type of sauna. But there’s another sauna you should know about. It’s called an infrared sauna. These use a different heat source that’s been proven in clinical trials to raise core temperature, lower blood pressure, and aid in weight-reduction by promoting circulation and sweating out toxic substances at the cellular level. This is your body metabolising calories and purging out toxins stored in fat cells.
Superbody far infrared rays (FIR) that cannot be seen by the human eye vibrate the cells safely, producing heat from the inside out, detoxifying and promoting sweating for a deep cleansing, and furthermore promoting thermogenesis. Burns approximately 600+ calories in 30 minutes. Real instant and ongoing inch loss results that can contribute to material weight loss over a period of time. After the session your body will continue to be at an elevated metabolic state and continue to burn calories for up to 48 hours. Helps improve cardio vascular and immune systems. If you're trying to manage chronic back, neck or leg pain, Far Infrared Heat Therapy will likely be the best pain reliever you will ever come across. It is also suitable for arthritis, fibromyalgia and sports injuries. Tightens and rejuvenates skin, improves quality, cleanses impurities.
In a study published in The Journal of the American College of Cardiology, the Mayo Clinic study showed Far Infrared Heat Therapy:
- Significantly lowers your blood pressure
- Helps you lose weight faster
- Significantly increases your blood flow and circulation
- Lowers your cholesterol
- And lowers your triglycerides (too much of this is linked with coronary artery disease)
The Mayo Clinic study suggests that Far Infrared Heat Therapy even lowers your rish of getting arteriosclerosis! And that you can get all these benefits without diets, exercise or months of treatments - Not that those aren't god for you! we should all ear right and exercise. But most of us could use a little help too.
You just can't get the same fast and dramatic improvement of your circulation from regular heat (they fail to penetrate deep enough to provide lasting relief or promote healing) as a Far Infrared Heating Bed can deliver. Additionally Infrared Heating beds do not produce electro magnetic frequencies.
Address the impact that stress is having on your life.
i. Learn to meditate and watch your life improve.
ii. Practice yoga nidra, deep relaxation
iii. Practice pranayama, yoga breathing.
iv. Walk in nature.
v. Follow the Shanti Yoga stretching and detox program.

How does Yoga work in the program?
The practices of yoga include asanas (postures), gentle stretching, together with practices in breath work and relaxation. Yoga stimulates specific points in the body which release endorphins, natural hormones which have a calming effect on the centres of the brain that relate to eating and send you messages that you have been elegantly satisfied. This decreases cravings and makes it easier to deal with and manage the stresses that cause overeating. Endorphins also affect the digestive and endocrine glands to help rebalance the organ systems. The calming benefits of Yoga decrease the irritability associated with weight loss. Yoga is an effective adjunct therapy for the treatment of weight control.
The role of Ayurveda in the program
Ayurveda, the science of life and health and the sister discipline of yoga, is more than a Vedic science that heals. It is a 5000 year old philosophy and way of life that was developed to perfection when human beings existed in harmony with the natural world. Ayurveda recognises the body's innate ability to heal itself and regain balance through the most natural, nontoxic and noninvasive methods.
A complete and formal Ayurvedic cleanse is called panchakarma, which is done under the supervision of a trained Ayurvedic practitioner. The foundation of an Ayurvedic cleanse is a simple diet that helps remove the impurities that build when we are taking in more than we can process, and renews your body on all levels. The biggest benefit is their ability to transform your weak, exploitable, immune system into an indestructible healthy, functioning lifeforce. Ayurvedic vegetarian weightloss meals provide a simple solution. The body can focus its energy on processing and releasing the impurities that have build up, and simultaneously new impurities don't build because you don't consume un healthy or difficult to digest food. Ayurvedic lifestyle education helps you understand your own personal constitution and manage your cravings (for sweets, fat, alcohol etc.). Ayurvedic herbs stimulate the brain’s sensory systems, your digestive and metabolic fire, and assist your elimination.
The role of Ayurvedic Weight Loss Massage
Ayurvedic massage is used in effective ways to help you lose weight. There are two vital sensory systems in the brain that control our eating habits. The feeding center is responsible for the feeling of hunger. The satiety center is responsible for the feeling of fullness. If the feeding center is overactive, you may always feel hungry; and if the satiety center is under active, you may not feel full so easily. Massage can help by increasing blood circulation and metabolic rate, thereby enabling your system to work more efficiently in digesting your food and eliminating its wastes.
Weight loss massage is a program of visceral (abdominal) massage and marma (energy points) pressure which is used to help clear the system of metabolic waste and encourage circulation. This improves digestion which can help you be successful in your weight loss program. Stimulation is not applied directly into the brain's areas but into corresponding meridian points on the arms, legs and abdomen which then affect the feeding centre in the brain. Stimulation at these points over a period of about 3 weeks can significantly reduce body weight. The effects are enhanced by combining it with weight loss herbal therapy and yoga.
Ayurvedic relaxation massage is a valuable adjunct therapy used in conjunction with yoga and herbs to maximise weight loss effects. A special weight loss herbal lotion from India is applied during the massage to effectively increase blood flow to the abdominal fat, increase the metabolism and assist in fat breakdown. Massage has a number of other benefits that can directly influence your ability to control or lose weight:
- Massage improves the circulation and the supply of nutrition to the muscles, and increases tissue metabolism, which helps the muscles to grow and burn more calories, thereby reducing fat.
- Massage directly aids in fat loss by bursting the fat capsule within the subcutaneous tissues, allowing the fat to exude and become digested.
- Massage helps prevent and heal injuries and shortens the recovery time needed between your exercise workouts. This means you can safely have more workouts over a given period of time, giving you the opportunity to burn more total calories in your effort to achieve your individual weight loss goals.
The Ayurvedic Massage Treatment Plan
The number of Ayurveda treatments necessary depends on your goals for losing weight and your commitment to keeping the weight off. Usually, a full course consists of a 60-minute treatment every day for the first three days, followed by treatments every other day for a full course of 10 treatments. For the average person who wants to lose between ten to fifteen pounds, this is sufficient to help you reach and maintain your goal. Due to individual differences, weight loss results may vary.
