The History of Body Wraps

Body wraps have been around for many years, dating all the way back to ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. Body Wraps are therapies that can detoxify and heal the body, remove excess fat and fluid from tissues, restore minerals, reduce joint pain, tighten and tone the skin, and nourish and soften the skin. Over the past 30 years, with the increase in science in the cosmetic industry, body wraps now top the list of spa treatments that offer cosmetic and therapeutic benefits for the entire body.

The Science Behind Body Wraps

Just below the skin, there are three layers of fat. Within each layer of fat, there are individual fat cells which are surrounded by interstitial fluid. This fluid can accumulate in excess within the cells and between the cells because of a lack of exercise, aging, diets high in salt and sugar, and a build up of toxins. Body wraps contain ingredients designed to draw out these excess fluids and toxins while restoring nutrients to the body.

Understanding Toxins

Toxins are chemicals and preservatives that enter the body through the air we breathe, foods we eat, liquids we drink, and are absorbed through the pores in our skin from the products we apply daily to our hair and skin. Normally, our bodies are designed to flush these toxins out through the liver and kidneys. But the amount we take in is much greater than what our bodies can safely process, so the excess toxins end up being stored in the interstitial fluid where they are then absorbed by the surrounding fat cells.

This body wrap creates inch loss in two ways. The first is by aiding the lymphatic system in the removal of stored toxins. These wraps stimulate a process called lymphatic drainage, where toxins and fatty acids from your cells are released into the capillaries and eliminated along with the body's waste. Being advised to drink large quantities of water (64 ounces per day) after this type of body wrap is common to help flush the toxins.
