Body wraps were originally a treatment where Ace bandages or plastic wrap was tightly wrapped around the body to cause quick weight loss through vasodilatation. But today a body wrap in a spa is more likely to be treatment where you’re slathered with a body mask made of algae, seaweed, mud, clay, lotion or cream, then wrapped for 20 minutes to keep you warm. Later the product is rinsed off. The body wrap usually ends with an application of lotion (technically not a massage). This body wrap treatment is sometimes called a body cocoon or body mask.
What are the Benefits of a Body Wrap?
Body wraps that use algae, seaweed, mud or clay are detox treatments that help rid the body of toxins through metabolic stimulation.
Body wraps using shea butter and rich lotions are hydrating treatments geared towards softening the skin.
What Happens During A Body Wrap?
Often a body wrap begins with exfoliation through a salt scrub. You lie down on plastic or sheets, but sometimes towels.
Once the product is on, you’re wrapped to stay warm, usually for 20 minutes. Oftentimes the therapist leaves the room, but you can ask them to give you a scalp massage or take a nap to be calmer and relax. Then you wash and dry off, and there’s usually an application of Firming Lotion to moisturize your skin.
