Our bodies state of survival response generates a sequence of chain reactions including shivering, adrenaline rushes and increased blood circulation in an effort to raise your core temperature. This reaction burns a large amount of energy, increases metabolism and fat is burned more quickly as your body needs more energy to warm up which is precisely what contributes to weight loss during and up to eight hours after treatment.
