Body wraps are designed to improve the texture and appearance of the skin by helping to rid the body of excess fluids and toxins. Benefits of body wraps may include detoxification, boosting of the lymphatic system and metabolism, body contouring, inch-loss, skin tightening and skin softening.
The Early Show recently had four different wraps done on four women during the program. They were measured before and after, off-camera, to see if the wraps made a difference. All four volunteers lost from two-to-four INCHES within an HOUR.
How Are Body Wraps Performed?
At Slim Body & Spa, we have 2 different kinds of wraps: Body Contouring wraps and Infrared Body Wraps.
Body Contouring Wrap
Our detoxifying and body contouring wrap begins with exfoliation through an herbal salt scrub. Then detoxifying cream is applied directly to the skin and the patient’s torso, legs, arms and butt are wrapped. While wrapped, patients have the choice of laying back and relaxing, standing on our full body vibration machine to burn some calories, resting in our infrared sauna (this option is currently only available in Jax Beach), or a combination of the three. You may feel the cream heat up as it is flushing your system of harmful toxins. The patients who choose to measure before and after end up losing from 2 to 10 inches.
Our Infrared wrap is a more technologically advanced adaptation of traditional body wraps. Also more convenient for shy patients, they get to lay in the padding without removing any clothes. The pads generate infrared energy which is similar to the energy produced naturally during exercise to trigger an increased metabolic response. Patients can burn up to 1,200 calories in an hour and continue burning calories for up to 36 hours after the treatment. The body releases fat and toxins which results in cellulite and inch reduction with a lasting effect. The infrared wrap is not just for weight loss or cellulite reduction, it also helps ease muscle and joint pain or fatigue.
Possible Benefits of Body Wraps
Body wraps are all-natural, most often containing a mixture of herbs and minerals designed to beautify the skin. Essential oils may also be used, seeking to help tone and soften the skin, and help rid you of those unwanted inches. Results may be realized immediately. But toxins and interstitial fluids eventually re-accumulate, so regular body wraps may provide better long-term benefits.
More on Body Wraps:
Body wrap cream uses natural ingredients to exfoliate and detoxify the skin. Fine lines will lessen after just one treatment. Such deeply relaxing treatments are shown to decrease stress, thereby lowering blood pressure. Since the skin is our largest organ, detoxification can have profound effects on our health and sense of well-being.
