Summer is here and it’s that time of year where some of us might begin to critique our bodies. You’ve been hibernating all winter long and are determined to get into shape by the summer months. Summer rolls in and you are still stuck in that winter body. You find yourself too busy to go to the gym due to your hectic work schedule and busy life. You’ve tried everything you could think of, even eating salad out of mason jars, but the inches will not fall off. One thing you might want to try and a service that we offer is the full body contour wrap. Now you are probably thinking, “I’ve heard of the ‘it works’ and have been bombarded by all the messages, but does it really work? Is the body contouring wrap the same? Am I going to see any results?” Let me start off by giving you some facts about our body wraps and how they can benefit you! What is in a body wrap and why should I try it?
The body wraps offer a healthy way to lose inches that is a toxin cleanse creating a very definite size loss from fatty areas. The aloe vera that is in the solution used will moisturize, tone, and tighten the skin. No showering is needed after the wrap. The treatment and “all food’ ingredients are safe, healthy, effective, and relaxing. So you may be asking how does it work? The solution of aloe vera and natural USA herbs combine to penetrate through the protein wall that surrounds the fat cell and dissipate toxins from the fat cells into the body’s lymphatic system. In the lymphatic system, the toxins can be flushed from the body as one drinks water over the following 3 days. This movement causes a reduction in the size of the fat cell.
What do I wear while being wrapped? The wrap cloths are applied over a cotton bra and cotton underwear for women and cotton workout shorts for men. The solution product will not penetrate through synthetic clothing, therefore, cotton is always recommended.
How is the body wrap applied? Cotton cloth strips are soaked in aloe and herbs, heated, and applied to the entire body in a mummy style wrap. Sometimes the professional technician will apply a gelled solution directly to the skin and wrap a layer of plastic film over the solution to keep it moist on the skin for continued penetration. The wrap is not applied tight. The client will lounge comfortable for about 45 minutes in the wrap. No perspiration should occur during the wrap treatment, as perspiring would prevent the penetration of the solution.
How much size can I expect to lose? Size loss comes first from new fat, while the aloe works to soften the older fat and cellulite areas. Sometimes cellulite will require 4 or 5 wrap treatments to soften these hardened cells. Each treatment will result in decreasing the softened areas. Fat across the back and under the arms will reduce quickly as cellulite in this area is rare. As inches are lost, the skin will tone and tighten. Imagine how long one would have to diet to drop an inch in the buttock area. Most clients will feel the looser fit of clothing after only a few treatments.
How will i feel after my body wrap? Your skin will be unbelievably soft and smooth when the wrap is removed. The wrap solution is clean and leaves the body feeling fresh and toned. You will want to schedule another treatment in 4-5 days and drink a gallon water every day until the next wrap.
Will my lost inches come back? People using body wraps 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. You will want to 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.
What is so important about drinking water? The body contour wraps are a firming and toning process that produce results by detoxifying the body. This is not a water loss program, or a dehydration type of body wrap. The loss is due to toxins being moved from the fat cells into the lymphatic system. One must drink water to flush the toxins from the lymphatic system. The body wrap will continue to work in the body for 3 days. On the fourth day, have another body wrap. Most times, the measures prior to the body wrap will be even smaller than after the previous wrap because of the continued water flush.
Hopefully these questions and answers have you feeling more confident in using body wraps.
