I have done wraps at the spa, but you are sweating water weigh in them. Not a quick fix! I usually use them now as a reward because the are very relaxing! For a number of them you are not supposed to shave for at least 48 hours before you go in.

Thanks everyone,
Thanks Will,
I read that article not sure what I am going to do yet. I am not trying to lose weight doing it thats not my purpose of wanting it done I wanted to firm up my lower stomach and firm up my arms. I do exercises just thought if I could get a little help .I just went down to a 16 pants the waist is a little big but they fit me in the lower stomach area. I could go smaller if my stomach didn't just hang. So it's to firm up is what I am looking for :) I am not changing anything that I have learned here. My exercises, portion control, watching my calories, drinking my water and so much more.

Thanks everyone again :),
Joanie

Body wraps have traditionally been used as a detoxification treatment, a means to help rid the body of toxins. Body wraps use an array of oils and lotions that treat the skin, removes dead follicles, and ultimately leave the skin feeling smoother and softer and refreshed.

Over the years, some companies have tried to market it as a quick fix method for losing weight. The type of weight that is typically lost is seldom long term. Though it can help somewhat with small amounts of weight loss, the weight youíre likely to lose will be mostly water. The body wrap process involves sauna-like procedures, which make you sweat a lot and causes most people to shed a pound or two as well as lose some inches from their waistline and other areas of the body.

By itself, the wrap may not be the magical answer to losing weight. But I think as part of an overall lifestyle of healthy eating and exercise, getting a body wrap can have some beneficial effects.
Here is a nice summation of one personís experience. Though this was about a salon in the United Kingdom, from some of the people I have talked with who have had a body wrap, itís very similar to what you can expect wherever you go to get one.

I had one on a cruise last year, they work for a day or two, it is water weight that you loose I think, looks great when they do before and after measurements, but try it later the next day and you are the same. There is also a treatment that I think is healtheir, a mud treatment that gets rid of the water as well as toxins, but either way, they are out of my price range.

Have heard of them and I do know people who swear by them. Working at the major strip hotels in vegas women come in just to get these wraps.

That would lead me to believe that there must be something to them.

I am thinking of getting a body wrap. Not for a quick fix to lose the weight but to help tighten up my belly and arms. I met a women who swears by them but didn't really get to talk to her much about it( I was at work)
I was wondering if anyone has had one or have any comments about them.
