Heal With Infrared Therapy

WHAT IS THERMOTHERAPY?

The term Thermotherapy is coined from the use of heat within a healing treatment, it is used to improve a wide range of health issues as well as a relaxation tool. Used in the application to relieve the body of pain, heat therapy can take on many forms from a hot cloth and hot water to ultrasounds and infrared (IR) therapy.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Thermotherapy can be beneficial for those that suffer with soft tissue injuries to mild arthritis and is commonly used with therapeutic effects to increase collagen tissues, decrease joint stiffness, reduce pain, relieve muscle spasm, reduce inflammation, increase blood flow and aid healing. The increased blood flow that then circulates around the body provides the vital proteins, nutrients and oxygen to the source of pain for a greater healing overall. Infrared therapy is much more convenient and effective when healing areas of the body because the heat radiation can directly treat the area and focus on the blood capillaries and neuron terminals. From a direct contact source such as IR, the heat can transfer and penetrate the skin for a deeper layer of conduction.

HOW DOES THERMOTHERAPY WORK?

By increasing the body temperature, you increase the metabolism, and this then increases blood circulation and benefits the skin by loosening and relaxing the connective tissue and muscles. Muscle pain is reduced and healing in the areas of concern can then be accelerated. As infrared creates higher tissue temperatures it then causes vasodilation (dilating of the blood vessels and decrease in blood pressure) which then results in the increased supply of oxygen and nutrients to the area and the elimination of carbon dioxide and metabolic waste.

If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.
