Detoxifying and skin-smoothing, a body wrap is a treatment that cocoons your whole body in a mixture of essential and nutrient-rich oils. Expect to be swaddled from the neck to feet in a membrane, foil and a cosy blanket.
Well known for its detoxifying qualities, this highly relaxing treatment is designed to condition the skin, draw out toxins and shed excess fluid from your bloodstream, while leaving your skin super soft and supple. Also used to aid weight loss and improve cellulite, a body wrap has a host of body healing side effects that many beauty addicts swear by.
IS IT FOR ME?
It’s the perfect treatment to try if you have a special event coming up and are looking to feel slender in a particularly tight-fitting dress. The beauty of the body wrap is that it helps to release excess fluid from your skin, which allows you to instantly lose inches. It also improves your circulation which can reduce the appearance of cellulite and boost your lymphatic system and metabolism.
WHAT TO EXPECT
So how does it work? Your therapist will give your skin a gentle exfoliating scrub to cleanse and purify your system, and once the oil has been applied to your skin, your therapist will tightly wrap membrane around your body – it will be wrapped around your arms, legs, torso. The wrap itself is tightly bound to encourage sweating – this boosts the detoxification process of the treatment tenfold. Take note, you’ll need to stay wrapped up for between 30 minutes to an hour while the ingredients take effect, so if you suffer from claustrophobia this may not be the treatment for you!
GOOD TO KNOW
Each session will differ from place to place, but in most cases, after the membrane comes off, you will be doubly sure you will come out looking fresh as a daisy. For longer-term results, your therapist may recommend a course of treatments.
