Taking a leaf out of nature's book, a body wrap is a method of cocooning your whole body in a mixture of herbs, essential oils or sea salts, surrounded by warm cloths. Wraps are used to condition the skin, draw out toxins and shed excess fluid, so you can emerge looking great and feeling fluttery.
A body wrap is a great quick-fix treatment if you have a special event coming up. As well as shedding excess fluid, which allows you to instantly (if temporarily) lose inches, it's also thought to improve your circulation, reduce the appearance of cellulite and boost your lymphatic system and metabolism. So, you'll be body-beautiful in no time, ready to get hitched or hit the beach.
For longer-term results, your therapist may recommend a course of treatments.
Depending on the type of wrap you choose, you'll either have the mixture of herbs, oils or salts applied directly to your body, or the wrapping cloths will be soaked in the mixture beforehand. The cloths are like wide, stretchy bandages, which your therapists will wrap around your arms, legs, torso and neck. You'll need to stay wrapped up for between 30 minutes and an hour while the treatment works.
After the cloths come off, your therapist may give your skin a gentle exfoliating scrub to make doubly sure you come out looking fresh as a daisy.
