Body wraps have been used for thousands of years dating back to ancient
Egypt, Greece and Rome. Bodywraps were traditionally performed to heal
the body and beautify the skin. In more recent years, body wrapping started
to gain in popularity in European countries. Today, body wraps have become
a popular treatment around the world for detoxifying, firming, toning,
and losing inches.
How Wraps Work
Body wraps work on the lymphatic system to rid the body of toxins and impurities
or pollutants. The lymphatic system provides the body with immune defenses
and removes foreign waste and cell debris from the blood. Within the lymph
fluid there are microscopic vessels called lymphatic capillaries that
drain excess fluid that does not return to the blood capillaries. In addition,
these capillaries also absorb protein from the tissue fluid. When fluids
enter the lymphatic capillaries, they take on the name lymph.
This lymphatic fluid or lymph moves through a network of vessels where
pressure from blood in neighboring capillaries forces lymph into tissue
spaces where it gives the appearance of enlarged fatty tissue on the abdomen,
buttocks and thighs. The build up of toxins and unwanted fats in the skin,
when stored over time will expand the volume of the fatty tissue and cause
the body to retain more water. These toxins and fatty expansions of the
skin cells can be eliminated with body wraps.
Body wraps enhance movement of lymph and connective tissue fluids, thus
promoting normal, healthy, functioning of the lymph system. Toxins and
impurities are removed from the body through the natural waste system.
Body wrapping is a completely natural approach to shedding inches and tightening
and firming loose skin. When coupled with a good diet and a series of
wrap treatments, you can lose inches that will stay off and will improve
the overall health and appearance of your skin.
What about dieting and exercise?
We find that dieting will soften the fat deposits so the treatment will
take off the inches quicker. Exercise will firm and tone the muscles,
particularly well in the stomach area. Exercise will burn the fat from
the body and increase body metabolism. For best health, everybody should
exercise several hours each week. However, even strenuous exercise does
very little for actually getting rid of hardened fat like cellulite.
How does it reduce inches?
The cloth wraps are applied warm so the pores will open allowing the solution
to get down into the fat deposits. The aloe vera in the solution will
penetrate the protein wall of the fat cell and allow the herbs in the
solution to begin dissipating the bulky toxins into the lymph system.
After the wrap we ask the client to drink water to flush out the broken
down fat and toxins so the are GONE!!! It is not a water loss –
but a definite inch loss.
Will my lost inches come back?
Clients on this program have kept off the inches and pounds better and
easier than with any other weight loss system. Keep in mind that one cannot
continue eating at a size larger than they wish to be. Avoid alcohol,
salt, spices, sugar and oils as these will keep the water you drink from
flushing through the lymphatic system to cleanse your body of the unwanted
toxins and fat. Fat is not heavy so only about one pound of weight loss
will occur after drinking water to flush the body.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What do I do before treatment?
To condition your skin for the wrap, bathe with no soap. Use hot water
and a loofa or cloth, scrubbing extra where you want to lose the most.
Do not use bar soap or any lotion on your skin before the wrap. These
products may contain animal fat or mineral oil which can clog pores. You
want to make sure your pores are as clean and open as possible for the
solution to effectively penetrate. Shaving the night before is also a
What do I wear for the treatment?
The treatment is done with the woman dressed in cotton panties and bra
(which will get wet, so bring an extra pair to wear home.) After the wrap
is applied we put you in a warming suit to retain your own body warmth
and even cover you with a blanket.
What process should I expect with my body wrap treatment?
Expect the first session to last approximately 2-hours. The process begins
by measuring your arms, torso, thighs, and legs. Then you will be wrapped
with warm cotton strips that are soaked in the aloe based solution. No
elastic gauges are used. Elastic gauges are more constrictive cutting
off vital circulation while reducing lymph to flow throughout the body.
After being wrapped you will be placed in a body suit then covered with
a thin sheet or body blanket. No need to work out for this body wrap.
The wrap does not dehydrate the body by taking off excess water so no
movement is necessary. If you do perspires please tell the therapist and
she will remove the blanket.
It's your hour to relax. You can sleep, read a book, use your phone
or listen to your ipod. Please bring something to do if you feel you will
need activity to fill your time during the wrap. After 45 minutes the
cloth strips will be removed and you will be measured again. No need to
take a shower afterward. It is advise that you do not shower for at least
24-hours. The aloe and herbal based solution will leave the skin refreshed
and clean. You will also notice the skin being moist and smooth. In some
cases the aloe based solution helps to reduce stretch marks, scars and dry skin.
How many inches will I actually
That depends on how much cellulite/fat that you have and every body is
different. Usually most clients loose anywhere from 5 to 14 total inches
their first session. Inch loss in each area is anywhere between 1/4 to 3 inches.
How long should I wait between sessions before my next wrap?
It is recommended that you wait at least three to four days after your
first wrap. It is good to buy a package of three or more wraps for continued
inch loss. For a detoxing regiment it is recommended to do the wrap once
every two to three months.
What should I do after the wrap?
Just make sure that you drink at least three to four liters of water within
a 24-hour period and refrain from foods high in sodium and sugar. If you
follow directions you will see continued results.
After your first wrap you will see the results.
