Benefits of Body Wraps
Different types of body wraps are there that involve either dry or moist clothes wrapped around the abdomen, legs, neck and arms. Once you get fully wrapped, the warmth of the body leads to sweating which causes the body to get rid of excess of fluids. This also helps fight cellulite, arthritis and skin ailments, making it beneficial both on physical and mental level. Often body wraps use algae, seaweed, clay or mud that rid the body of toxins.

Time frame required
The overall time that slimming body wraps need is not more than twenty to thirty minutes. In fact, the feel good factor is so bright that you might wish the duration of the body wraps was longer. When the time is up, you’re unwrapped for the body mask to come off. The body wrap session takes place in wet rooms, where there is a shower and wet table which the therapist guides you through. Once you dry off, lotion is applied to moisturise your skin. Although the primary purpose of a body wrap is to achieve weight loss, there are other advantages too.
The sole purpose of a body wrap is to help in shedding excess body fluid which in turn makes one go slim. That is why more and more people are turning to body wraps. “Detox” wraps are aimed to draw toxins out of your body, and during a power wrap, you are made to work out on a machine wrapped in Ace bandages that are soaked in an electrolyte solution. Top it all, when herbs, minerals and other natural products are used with the body wrap, the body undergoes further detoxification which removes harmful toxins from your body making you feel a lot healthier and energised.
Sea salts can be used as part of the body wrap to exfoliate your skin. When the salts are rubbed against your skin, the dead skin cells gradually get scraped away. This helps you get smoother and glowing new skin.
When you body is wrapped in cloth wraps, naturally they create a feeling of warmth and comfort. If you seek fragrance during the body wrap session, you can ask aromatherapy oils such as rosemary, lavender, lemon, olive oil and grapefruit to be added to the wrap. This helps you breathe pleasant smells, which further de-stress your body.
Don’t take a body wrap as a massage. But you can get both body wrap and massage depending on your need and requirement.
