Body wraps are treatments that offer a variety of health benefits. Customers are wrapped in an oil with active ingredients and then a secondary membrane wrap, as well as a heated blanket and foil blanket are also used during the treatment too. The ingredients in the MiniMi solution are absorbed during, as well as after the treatment – hydrating the body, toning the skin and soothing muscles.

Who is this business right for?

Body wrap spas offer clients a holistic way to meet their health goals. Success in this profession is realised by those who are fulfilled from helping others on their journey to a more healthy lifestyle. They enjoy interacting with others, seeing this as an opportunity to learn and grow, both personally and professionally.

What happens during a typical day at a body wrap spa?

While a relaxing environment, body wrap spas require a fairly regimented schedule. This ensures each client receives the full benefit from each session and that the environment is kept safe and clean.

The following items will require you and your staff’s attention on a regular basis:

  • Consulting with clients regarding their treatment goals
  • Scheduling appointments
  • Performing wrapping services
  • Educating customers regarding proper aftercare
  • Cleaning and maintaining all spa equipment
  • Replenishing inventory, placing orders as needed
  • Analysing current marketing efforts, modifying strategy when necessary
  • Educating staff, managing their human resources needs, and managing their schedules
  • Billing, accounting, and administrative duties

What is the target market?

This industry attracts customers from every demographic. When building your business plan, consider what is important to you. Do you want to help clients reach weight goals? Do you want to help customers who are in pain and in need of detox? What other health benefits impassion you? Once you’ve determined this, you’ll be better equipped to identify your target market.

How does a body wrap spa make money?

A body wrap spa makes money from clients with appointments, as well as walk-in clients, all of whom pay for body wrapping services.

Business owners have an opportunity to expand their business to include a multitude of different services, in a variety of settings.
