Measuer tape isolated on whiteIf you have never had a slimming body wrap treatment before,  you probably have quite a few questions.  What exactly is a body wrap?  How does a body wrap work?  Do body wraps actually work?

In this short article below, I intend to answer those questions.  Feel free to post a comment at the bottom of this post if you have any other questions or need any clarification.


How Are  Body Wrap Treatments Performed?

People undergoing slimming body wrap treatments normally have their mid-section, legs, arms, and neck wrapped with body wrap bandages (either dry when wrapped or pre-soaked with a liquid herbal body wrap formula). The body wrap bandages help compress the tissue, as well as absorb and help remove excess body fluids and toxins. The bandages are wrapped snugly (though not too tightly), creating a thermal blanket that promotes sweating and helps in the removal of unnecessary interstitial fluid (fluid located between the small spaces of body tissues).How to Perform a Home Body Wrap


The Benefits Of Body Wraps Treatments

Body wrap treatments are natural, most often containing a combination of different herbs and minerals designed to beautify the skin and promote inch loss. Essential oils and sea salts may also be used in body wrap treatments.  Certain ingredients will not only help tone and soften the skin, but will also help you shed inches. For others, results are noticed after the first wrap while some need a series of treatments before achieving their desired goals. In general, 3-4 body wraps that are a day apart are recommended for initial treatments. Do remember that toxins and interstitial fluids eventually find their way back in to your body so having regular “maintenance” body wrap treatments will provide better long-term benefits.

Body wraps use detoxifying organic materials, such as sea clay or aloe vera, to draw toxic chemicals from the body and improve skin tone and texture. In order to get the most out of your body wrap treatment, it’s best to exfoliate the skin prior to your wrap, or perform some type of body scrub.

Most body scrubs use a blend of oils with fine and coarse grains and are followed with the application of emollient lotions to further soften skin. Skin will feel soft, and 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 body organ, detoxification can have incredible effects on our overall health.
