The Body Wrap™ Q & A
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 inch loss and contouring and lightly
where only skin tightening is desired. It is very healthful and
Q. How 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 compact and firm the body quickly.
Q. What is in The Body Wrap™ Solution?
A. Although the solution formula is proprietary 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 or cape 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 hours for your first wrap or 3 hours for
a double wrap. You are in your wrap for only 55 minutes; the extra
time is for measuring, weighing, bra fitting (optional), wrapping,
unwrapping and re-measuring. Subsequent wraps take less than 2
hours as you don't need to repeat certain preparatory steps.
Measurements are only taken at the first appointment and at the
end of each package.
Q. Who will The Body Wrap™ help?
A. Anyone who wants to tone and tighten their 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 undergarments 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 lose inches or contour. 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 clients 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 tightening because of weight loss
or aging. Others are wrapped to tighten 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 overall size
but contour as well. We have found that the body functions better
in an aesthetically perfect shape.
Q. I have large hips & thighs. 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 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 slenderize 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 tight. The Body Wrap™
helps reduce swelling and bloating and is vital in a program to
control 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 slimmer and the rest of the body lightly to tighten
skin and improve shape only. If we are only wrapping for loss
in a few spots, we do not guarantee a 6 inch loss, * but we will
take as much as possible off those spots.
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 visually take off inches
rather than pounds. If you lose any weight it's a bonus.
Q. Should I tip?
A. Leaving gratuity for work well done seems to be the norm,
but of course, it is optional. Most tips for The Body Wrap™
range from 10-20% of the price of the services provided.
