What Are Body Wraps?

Body Wraps are spa treatments created to enhance the health and appearance of your skin. Wraps are used for various specific reasons and can remineralize, hydrate, stimulate, detoxify and promote relaxation, to name a few. The products used will determine the effects and results.

The use of Body Wraps dates back to ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece. Our skin being our largest organ of the body has the power to eliminate and absorb faster than any other organ. This can have a signifigant effect on your health and well being.

Some of the most popular Body Wraps and thier benefits:

SEAWEED- Seaweed may not appeal to you when you see it on the beach but this slimy sea plant has powerful ingredients, rich in vitamins, minerals and amino acids which can be absorbed during the wrap and can benefit your skin and body systems. Benefits can include: Elimination of toxins, boost metabolism, soften the skin and reduce water retention.

CLAY/MUD- Clay can draw out impurities in the skin which has a detoxifying effect. Minerals found in Dead Sea clay or mud can deliver added minerals and reduce inflamation. Benefits can include: Detoxification, remineralization, muscle relaxation, some pain relief and reduce water retention.

HERBAL- Can improve circulation, reducing inflamation aiding in healing.Targeting issues with different herbs that have specific benefits can be beneficial. Benefits can include: soothing effect, detoxification, increased circulation which reduces inflamation.

OUR FAVORITE BODY WRAP: Chinese Herbology Body Retexturizer by BIOELEMENTS  Medicinal Chinese herbs to smooth and retexturize your skin from neck to toes.

Travis Henry, @bigTtheBarber, Class of 2011

I entered Beauty School not sure what to expect and with no prior cutting/barbering experience. I did research on a few local Beauty Schools and went with what felt right for my family and the locations that worked for me. The campuses were beautiful, the staff was awesome, and there was a variety of different students. Beauty school is what you make of it. It's the school's responsibility to teach you the rules, help you achieve greatness, and give you the tools you need to succeed in this profession. Northwest College did that for me. This business is 75% Passion and 25% skills, NW College can get you those skills if your willing to do your part. I graduated in March of 2011; I'm now a Certified Educator for Eufora International, Owner of Chop Shop Hair Studio, Co-Owner of  Doo or Dye Salon, President of the North West Barbers Alliance, and Business Partners with Shave Envy. You can achieve anything you want with the right training, support, and a passion.” - Travis Henry, Class of 2011

Jessica Koch, Class of 2014

I was very scared going back to school after nearly 20 years, but attending NW College in Tualatin made it an easy transition. I had no idea what to expect from beauty school or if I was making the right career move, but in no time at all I knew NW College was the right decision for me. I had amazing instructors that were encouraging and pushed me to trust in myself and my creative abilities. I graduated on November 22, 2014 and because of the great academics of NW College passed my state boards and became licensed on November 26, 2014. I had interviewed with several salons leading up to my graduation and started working immediately as an independent contractor on December 2, 2014.. Attending NW College was the best decision of my life, I’ve never been happier going to work each day. I LOVE my career choice as a licensed Cosmetologist.” - Jessica Koch, Class of 2014
