Body Wraps: What and Why?

Body wraps are generally used to reduce the appearance of cellulite, and to improve the health and appearance of your skin by moisturizing and hydrating your body. Toxins are stored in the body and can impact people regardless of weight, size, or gender. Some believe that body wraps cleanse the body of these stored and trapped toxins, which can collect in the body due to such factors as aging, improper diet, lack of exercise, smoking, dehydration, and stress. 

The body wrap solution can be a liquid or cream, lotion, mud or clay with an herbal, vitamin, or mineral base that is rubbed on the body part(s) of concern. Some practitioners claim that the solution in use during the process cleanses and detoxifies pushing out trapped toxins, which flush out through drinking a lot of water after the wrap. The result is inch loss where the solution is applied. The amount of inch loss depends on the amount and density of the fat storage in the body part treated. Typically, the softer the fat, the faster it disappears and the quicker you see results.
