Body Wrap FAQ's
Q. What is a Body Wrap
A. The pampering experience of a body wrap can provide multiple benefits, depending on the type chosen: We provide Detoxifying Body Wrap; featuring detoxifying algae, seaweed, mud or clay that can help rid the body of toxins through metabolic skin cell stimulation.
Q. What Happens During A Body Wrap?
A. A Body Wrap would begin with exfoliation, and a salt scrub or body polish is much superior to dry brushing. You lie down on whatever you will eventually be wrapped in – often plastic or mylar, but sometimes towels or sheets.
Once the product is on, you’re wrapped to stay warm, usually for 20 minutes.
Oftentimes the therapist leaves the room, but sometimes they stay and give you a scalp massage
When the time is up, you’re unwrapped and the body mask has to come off. This is why they often take place in wet rooms, equipped with a shower. You might either jump in a shower or the therapist will rinse you off with a handheld shower. Then you dry off, and there’s usually an application of lotion to moisturize your skin.
Q. Who should get a hydrating body wrap?
A. You're out on the ski slopes. It's the middle of winter. You take off your jeans and watch the white flakes fly. It's time to exfoliate and hydrate! Aloe vera wraps (popular in the Caribbean) can also help your skin recover from too much time in the sun.
Q. Things To Watch Out For With a Body Wrap
A. * Don’t expect a body wrap to be a massage. You can get both treatments – body wrap and massage -- or look for signature treatments that include scrub, body wrap and massage.
* If you have claustrophobia, this may not be the right treatment for you.
* You might be left alone during the treatment. If that bothers you, ask before you book the service.
