Frequently Asked Questions

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 relaxing.
Q. Why does it work?
A. Waste, chemicals, stress, medication, pollution in our environment and chronic dehydration overload body systems, causing water retention and soft spongy cellulite-ridden tissue. Our minerals and proven wrapping techniques compact and firm the body quickly and naturally.
Q. What is in The Body Wrap Solution?
A. Although the solution formula is secret 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 is put on you to help you retain your own body heat. The wrap can be combined with infrared sauna (before or after) to create a deep-cleansing experience, if you choose.
Q. How long does it take to get a body wrap?
A. Allow a total of 1.5 to 2 hours for your first wrap (3 hours for a Lipase double-wrap). While in the wrap for only 60 minutes, allow extra time for measuring, weighing, bra fitting, wrapping, unwrapping and re-measuring. Subsequent wraps take less than 2 hours as you don't need to repeat certain preparatory steps.
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, please wear a non-wired bra and panties (no girdles, please, as they make accurate measurements impossible). Men, please bring non-bulky shorts and underwear. Bring a change of underclothes because what you are wrapped in will be wet.
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, your commitment to any necessary weight loss or health programs, etc. To maximize your results, get wrapped once or twice a week until your skin looks tighter and you are satisfied you look great in and out of your clothes. Then it just takes a few times a year for maintenance. As with any natural process, the results of the wrap are cumulative---regular wraps will have better results than a single wrap.
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 Patrons 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. The wrap hydrates the skin which improves appearance and texture. For optimum results during weight loss, schedule a wrap after every 10 pounds lost.
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. Ask about our home self-care for this goal, also.
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. 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 take off inches rather than pounds. If you lose any weight it's a bonus.
