The use of body wraps has become more and more popular in recent years with people using them for everything from releasing toxins and toning their skin to weight loss. There are now even products that you can purchase and use on yourself at home, although to me that kind of takes way from the whole experience. Regardless, a body wrap will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
The body wrap treatment is actually two processes. The first of these is the absorption phase where a substance is placed in the wraps on your body that helps to open your pours and remove toxins. The toxins are absorbed by the ingredients such as herbs, clay, and seaweed. All of the items used have a special purpose in making you feel better.
The next step of the process is called the squeeze which is the compacting of your body tissues after the fluids are removed. After the removal of the toxic fluids, gaps are left in your cells and the squeezing method fills and closes them which helps you to appear leaner and more thin as well as making you feel healthier. Body wraps can even help with pain relief from injuries or stress. The detoxification itself can give you a euphoric feeling just from the feeling of being cleaner and leaner.
For a weight loss body wrap you should check into the herbal wraps which use a combination of minerals and herbs. In addition to removing the toxins from your skin they also help to remove fat and tighten your skin at the same time. It is common for people to lose many inches during these sessions.
Another use of body wraps that I find incredible is the use for pain removal from sprains, strains, arthritis and of course skin conditions. All of these maladies are often alleviated from the release of toxins which leaves you feeling rejuvenated and healthy as well as helping you to lose inches.
Although body wraps have become more popular in recent years they have been around since the early 1960’s in the United States. Their popularity has grown substantially since they were featured on daytime talk shows in the seventies. The demonstration of the process on live television made the process the darling of the media and now it is sued all over the world in day spas. I really feel these are the crown jewel in a visit to a day spa, you can’t go to a spa and not get a body wrap!
