Outer parts of the body, where fat is typically stored, are normally poorly supplied with blood and can be anything up to 10'C cooler than core body temperature. To break down fat you generally need to expend energy, such as that generated in sustained exercise. Exercise increases the Basic Metabolic Rate (BMR) and is widely accepted as one of the fastest ways to use calories. Exercise generates body heat, significantly increasing blood circulation, which stimulates lipolytic enzyme activity (fat burning).

Formostar provides concentrated heat into targeted areas, while still providing an overall body workout, over each 50 minute session. Due to the increase of blood flow during a Formostar session, generated through the concentrated heat, cardiovascular conditioning can also be achieved - the heart must work harder in order to pump blood faster through the body. A person using Formostar 2-3 times per week, as recommended, should experience body reshaping and weight-loss through the breakdown of fat and the loss of excess fluids and wastes.

The results of the Formostar Clinical Study ('Clinical study for the effectiveness of the FORMOSTAR - in depth thermal treatment for weight and size loss and degenerative joint and spinal column illnesses, Dr. med. A. MEDINA and Dr. med. K. RADTKE, 1985, Internal Medicine Department of the District Hospital Rinteln at the Weser - study commissioned by Formostar Germany and available on request) indicated that on average, the control group's results were:

With diet: an average of 6.5 kilos lost in 10 sessions and between 7 and 8 centimetres lost in each of the thigh, abdomen and hip areas.

Without diet: an average of 4 kilos lost in 10 sessions and between 5 and 6 centimetres lost in each of the thigh, abdomen and hip areas.

Sweating also plays a part in the loss with one gram of sweat being equivalent to .586 of a calorie. Hydrating (which we recommend prior, during and after a Formostar session) will replace lost fluid as required but the calories are lost in the process.
Fat is actually quite light, in fact much lighter than muscle. Your body requires a specific number of calories every day to function properly. Individuals with active lifestyles require more calories in their diet than those with sedentary lifestyles. If your energy intake consistently exceeds your energy output, you will begin to notice a change in weight.
For every 3500 calories consumed beyond the energy needs of your body, you may gain approx a kilo. On the other hand, creating a deficit of 3500 calories can result in the loss of a kilo. Consequently to lose one kilo a person needs to burn 7000 calories.
Formostar will be of most value with a balanced exercise and eating programme. People participating in diet programmes can sometimes experience a plateau effect. Combining Formostar sessions with diet can overcome this effect and accelerate results. Results will be dependent on each person's particular make up and physiology. Basic body shape also plays a part in how quickly the results will be achieved. Generally, the greater the excess weight being carried, the faster and more dramatic the body reshaping and weight loss results can be.

Benefits of the Formostar Far Infrared Body Wrap Treatments are: Pain Management; Detoxification; Body Fluid Reduction; Skin Conditioning; Improved Blood Circulation; Increasing Flexibility; Sports Recovery; General Well-being; and Weight Management

Pain Management: The Formostar was initially developed to assist in the relief of pain experienced by arthritis sufferers and improve joint mobility. Heat is generally accepted treatment for temporary pain relief. Far infrared heat lamps have been in use for many years, especially in Asia. Heat, absorbed by the body, can help deaden nerve endings, creating an analgesic effect bringing temporary pain relief. Promoting blood circulation to affected areas can aid in the healing of muscle and soft tissue injuries such as sprains, strains, arthritis, muscle spasm and many other muscular-skeletal ailments.

Detoxification: The skin is the largest organ in the body and it plays a major role in the detoxifying process alongside the lungs, kidneys, bowels, liver, and the lymphatic and immune systems. Many people go out of their way not to sweat, especially women. Air-conditioned buildings, air-conditioned cars, anti-perspirants and body lotions can prevent the body from performing its natural functions as well as clogging up the skin's pores. Sweating is a natural and beneficial process helping clear toxins out of a person's system.Toxins are both water based (residing in body fluids) and oil based (residing in fat tissue). The heat generated by the Formostar can stimulate the sweat glands and in combination with increased blood circulation can help release built-up toxins and waste trapped in cells and tissues.

Body Fluid Reduction: Formostar's deep heat sessions provide excellent sweat inducing capabilities which can be effective in helping people lose excess body fluids. People with mild forms of fluid retention around the ankles and feet can use Formostar to target these areas by using the variable wraps on the areas with fluid build-up. Reducing excess fluids can provide people with a greater level of comfort and mobility.

Skin Conditioning: For healthy skin, pores require cleansing. Pores may clog up for a variety of reasons and sweating helps the cleansing process helping to improve skin condition and making it more supple. Promoting additional oxygen enriched blood into areas where there is scar tissue may also aid the skin regeneration process.

Blood Circulation: Many issues that manifest themselves in the body such as arthritis, sciatica, menstrual cramps and fatigue, or outside the body such as psoriasis and acne, can to some degree, be due to poor blood circulation. Formostar sessions heat the body to aid stimulation of the flow of blood to peripheral areas.

Increasing Flexibility: Heat can help reduce joint and muscle tightness, aiding movement. Gentle stretching when warm can also help improve flexibility by up to 20%. For a person experiencing arthritis or mobility problems, Formostar heat treatments could be very valuable.
