Safe, Chiropractor-Supervised Weight Loss at St. Joseph Chiropractic
You may not be happy when you see a few extra pounds in the mirror, but the consequences of excess weight go far beyond cosmetic dissatisfaction. Being overweight can hurt your overall health, wear out your weight-bearing joints, and make you more vulnerable to musculoskeletal strain. Here at St. Joseph Chiropractic in St. Joseph, MO, we can help you overcome this challenge the safe, effective way through our chiropractor-supervised weight loss programs.
What Is Slimdome, and How Can It Help You?
The standard medical wisdom holds that a combination of proper diet and exercise can help facilitate weight loss. While this is true, it isn't always the answer for everyone. In some individuals, for instance, strenuous exercise increases stress levels, which in turn makes it harder (not easier) for the metabolic system to burn calories. In others, mobility problems or chronic pain conditions may make it difficult or impossible for them to exercise to the degree necessary to shed pounds. Our chiropractor offers a solution in the form of a state-of-the-art weight loss technology known as Slimdome.
Slimdome is a special kind of sauna that uses infrared light to burn calories. This infrared sauna is actually capable of helping you burn up to 600 calories within a single session. Even a 40-minute session can help you lose up to 5 percent of your body weight. Under the careful supervision of our skilled team, the sauna exposes the body to a temperature of 140 degrees Fahrenheit, promoting an intense sweat that also detoxifies the body, thus improving metabolic function.
A Natural Complement to Our Existing Treatment Modalities
Slimdome offers benefits above and beyond weight loss. Our infrared sauna also boosts blood flow, reduces inflammation, tones the skin, and aids in the healing of psoriasis and eczema. Our chiropractor may prescribe it alongside other treatment modalities as part of a holistic program to help you improve your health in several directions at once. For example, a combination of Slimdome and chiropractic adjustments can ease stress and pain in joints burdened by excess weight. Meanwhile, our nutritional counseling services can help you modify your eating habits for a lifetime of better weight control.
