Q. What is The Body Wrap?
A. The Body Wrap is a method for helping to visually slenderize and contour your body shape and visibly tighten your skin in only 60 minutes. It involves wrapping the body in porous elastic bandages soaked in a special mineral solution. The Body Wrap is applied firmly to areas needing the appearance of inch loss and contouring and lightly where only the skin needs to look tighter. It is very healthful and relaxing.
Q. Why does it work?
A. Waste, chemicals, stress, medication and pollution in our environment overload body systems and cause water retention and soft spongy cellulite-ridden tissue. Our minerals and proven wrapping techniques give the appearance of compacting and firming the body quickly.
Q. What is in The Body Wrap Solution?
A. Although the solution formula is secret we can tell you that it is composed entirely of food grade inorganic minerals and distilled water, all of which may be taken internally.
Q. Is The Body Wrap a heat or sauna type treatment?
A. NO. Although the wraps are applied warm, your body will feel cool. For your comfort, a poncho is put on you to help you retain your own body heat.
Q. How long does it take to get a body wrap?
A. Allow a total of 2 to 2 1/2 hours for your first wrap. You are in your wrap for only 60 minutes; the extra time is for measuring, weighing, bra fitting, wrapping, unwrapping and re-measuring. Subsequent wraps take less than 2 hours as you don't need to repeat certain preparatory steps.
Q. Who will The Body Wrap help?
A. Anyone who wants to have the look of toned and tightened skin. People with overly dry or rough skin. People with loose skin due to weight changes or from pregnancy. Men and women who want to look terrific fast! Anyone who wants to look and feel younger.
Q. What do I wear while I am wrapped?
A. Women are wrapped in a bra and panties (no girdles, please, as they make accurate measurements impossible). Bring a change of underwear because what you are wrapped in will be wet. Men are wrapped in swim trunks they bring with them.
Q. What is meant by "total inch loss"?
A. Before we wrap you, measurements are taken of various parts of the body (hips, calves, waist, midriff, abdomen, upper arms, etc.) and recorded on your own personal record chart with notes as to where you want to look slimmer or contoured. After the wrap you are re-measured and the difference of your measurements are added to determine "total inch loss."
Q. How many wraps will I need?
A. That depends on several things: The results you seek, the amount of loose skin you have, how active you are in your wrap, (it's advised you do mild aerobic motions while you are wrapped) your commitment to any necessary weight loss program, etc. To maximize your results you need to get in once or twice a week until your skin looks tighter, you are satisfied you look great in and out of your clothes, then it just takes a few times a year for maintenance. We wrap 2, 3 or 4 times a day if time is a factor; i.e., weddings, reunions, photo shoots, etc.
Q. What do I need to know?
A. Common sense says that if you have medical problems you should always obtain your doctor's permission before you try anything new or different. The Body Wrap is no exception.
Q. What will The Body Wrap do for my skin?
A. Our Patrons report that their skin appears smoother and tighter after wrapping. In fact, we have many Patrons who do not need to lose inches but need skin to look tighter because of weight loss or aging. Others are wrapped to tighten the appearance of skin that has loosened over the years.
Q. What will The Body Wrap do for cellulite?
A. As you probably know, cellulite is water-logged fatty tissue. One of the first things women with this problem report is a visible improvement in the cellulite dimples and ripples within the first few wraps. Results, however, can be seen from the very first wrap.
Q. What is Body Sculpturing?
A. Body Sculpturing is the art of wrapping and shaping in the same process. When we wrap you, we not only improve the appearance of overall size but contoured look as well. We have found that the body functions better in an aesthetically perfect shape.
Q. My hips, & thighs look large. The rest of my body is okay. Can you help me?
A. YES. We can do a great deal for those problems because the body wrap helps to bring the appearance of the body into correct proportion. Many women with heavy hips, thighs and legs (and men with heavy midsections) are water retainers. The wrap itself may assist with this problem but we can also provide you with good, general, non-medical things to do at home on a day to day basis. We help you understand the causes of water retention so YOU can control it.
Q. I am a water retainer...what will The Body Wrap do for me?
A. Water retainers usually have disproportionately large hips, thighs and/or legs, etc. They also have a problem with bloating and swelling. Studies show strenuous dieting seldom helps. The Body Wrap tends to improve the appearance of these problem areas. It is important to be wrapped once or twice a week regularly during weight loss so that you can keep your skin looking tight. The Body Wrap helps reduce the appearance of swelling and bloating and is vital in a program to control the appearance of water retention.
Q. What about problem spots?
A. Many Patrons with basically good bodies have problems in only a few areas. In such cases we wrap the problem spots firmly to make these areas look slimmer and the rest of the body lightly to make the skin look tighter and improve the appearance of the shape. If we are only wrapping for loss in a few spots, we do not guarantee a 6 inch slimmer look, * but we will improve the appearance of those spots as much as possible.
Q. Will I be in a state of fatigue or feel tired or depressed after my wrap?
A. NO. On the contrary, you feel VERY good after a wrap. Most Patrons tell us it leaves them feeling relaxed, energized, clean and very tight.
Q. How much weight will I lose?
A. The Body Wrap was designed to look slimmer rather than lose pounds. If you lose any weight it's a bonus.
