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.
