Dating back centuries to ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, body wraps are a holistic way to relax and detoxify. During this treatment, the therapist may apply a nourishing oil or mineral-rich formula before encapsulating you in a body wrap or cocoon designed to enhance the health and appearance of your skin. These all-natural treatments provide numerous benefits for your entire body.
Body wraps help your body rid itself of toxins naturally through metabolic cell stimulation. The process enhances the ability of your circulatory and lymphatic systems to remove waste products and toxins. Because the skin is your body’s largest organ, removing impurities via this pathway can have a significant effect on your appearance, health and overall well-being.
The tightly wound body wrap generates heat, which causes you to sweat. Along with toxins, you will lose excess water. The increase in your metabolic rate may cause you to burn calories. The treatment may also tighten your skin.
The preparatory body cleansing stage will remove dead skin cells, which provides a smoother complexion, a flattering skin tone and a younger appearance overall. Exfoliation minimizes the appearance of large pores and dark spots while reducing the chances of an occasional breakout. It also makes hair removal easier and lowers the risk of ingrown hairs.
Most body wraps include moisturizing ingredients that hydrate, nourish and smooth your skin. The nourishment helps your body to generate new skin cells. Because well-hydrated skin remains flexible, plump and resilient, it is less prone to wrinkles. Moist skin also provides a better protective barrier from environmental toxins and the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Once you have been wrapped in your body mask or cocoon, you will be left alone for a set amount of time to relax and reset your mind. You will have the opportunity to meditate or just enjoy the rare and valuable mental and physical downtime.
