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. www.ivillage.co.uk/beauty/bodybasics/cellu
