What is a Body Wrap?
A body wrap also known as a ‘body cocoon’ or body mask is a spa treatment created to enhance the health and appearance of the skin, and/or reduce body measurements. A nourishing oil or mineral rich formula is applied to the limbs and torso before they are wrapped in cotton, mylar bandages, or a plastic film. This promotes the extraction of dirt, toxins, and excess water from the skin. While most wraps are performed on the entire body (minus the face and genital area), some- such as cellulite and bust wraps are applied to certain areas alone.
What health and beauty benefits does a body wrap treatment provide?
Cryo (cold) & Thermal (hot) Body Treatment
A body treatment where the heat generated by the use of Thermo-Active Hot Gel produces an internal effect in the body called THERMOLIPOLYSIS, which consists of the dissolution of fats (LIPOLYSIS) through heat (THERMAL) caused by the dilation of the vessels. Its continuous use ensures better blood circulation which is diminished and insufficient in the fat deposits of the peripheral regions (hips, thighs, abdomen) where generally the temperature is lower, causing the vessel to dilate which facilitates the process of purification of the body achieving an effective reduction of its measurements and substantial improvements in cellulite processes.
The generalized exposure of the body to cold (CRYOLIPOLYSIS) causes peripheral vasoconstriction, metabolic activation of the internal organs and small muscle contractions (chills) to maintain or regain body temperature within physiological limits. The cold has a tightening effect on the skin by stimulating the contraction of its elastic fibers and on the metabolism of fat, since it stimulates mechanisms that try to raise the temperature on the treated area, which leads to a faster elimination of toxins and toning of the tissues.

Body Contouring with Infrared Thermal Blanket
During an Infrared Thermal Blanket session, your body’s core temperature is raised above 100.6 degrees F. This causes your body to enter a cool down mode, inducing 3-5 times more sweat than exercise alone. Since sweating burns calories, you’ll burn several calories during your session. Fat becomes water soluble at 100.5 degrees F and can break up into smaller particles which can be purged from the body through the lymphatic system. The Thermal Infrared Heating Blanket functions to emit a low energy emission heat which activates the metabolism, relaxes the muscles, increases circulation throughout the body, removes excess toxins, and
circulates lymph. The ultimate result is the reduction and elimination of fat cells
