What is a Body Wrap?

Traditionally, body wrap was used as a technique that results in weight loss on a temporary basis. However, this technique is not a lasting solution to the weight problems of individuals. Yet, it helps in the firming and the detoxification of the skin. Both of these can help in creating and maintaining a slender frame.

This is mask is left on your body for a minimum of twenty minutes and then rinsed off. Towards the end of this treatment, a lotion is applied gently on your body, which does not include a massage.

Under the body wrap technique that is used for losing weight, a piece of fabric is used to wrap your body comfortably along with minerals and natural botanicals. The wrap acts like thermal blanket due to its tightness and warmness. This enables your body to sweat out the needless water weight and toxins of your body, and hence lose inches.
