Deep heat therapy has been used as a remedy for pain relief since centuries. But did you know that deep heat therapy can also be used for fat loss? Yes, that’s true. The same mechanism that we have been using to relieve back pain as well as aches in other parts of the body is also proven to help you lose fat.

How does Deep Heat Therapy work for weight loss?
During this procedure, heat is applied to the areas of body that you intend to rid of fat. The heat that is applied increases the intermolecular temperature of the fat cells. This, in turn, loosens the fat cells by breaking down the binding between tissues and muscles of the area where the heat is applied.
Along with providing pain relief, this process also increases blood circulation. The increased blood circulation enhances metabolism. This therapy is known to burn more calories than any other conventional form of exercise.
What are the benefits of Deep Heat Therapy?
The deep heat therapy has the following benefits:
- Increases the extensibility of soft tissues
- Improved blood circulation
- Improved metabolism
- Removes toxins from the cells
- Relaxes the muscles
- Tones and strengthens the muscles
- Pain relief
- Increases energy levels
What is the mechanism of this treatment?
There are two types of heat treatments: Superficial and Deep. In superficial heat treatment, the heat gets applied to the outside of body. Whereas, in deep heat treatment, electric current is used to direct the heat towards the inner tissues of specific body areas.
How do I know if this treatment is suitable for me?
The deep heat treatment isn’t exactly suitable for overweight people. However, if you have extra fat in certain areas but aren’t overweight overall, you can opt for this treatment. Before beginning the treatment, it is advised to check with your doctor/ therapist once to eliminate any possible side effects.
Are the results from deep heat therapy permanent?
No treatment can give you ‘permanent’ results. To ensure that the results stay for as long as possible, only good balanced diet along with an exercise regimen will help.
