Enjoy the lush scent of a tropical island whilst being gently exfoliated. Encourage smooth, soft skin by removing excess dead skin cells. Regular exfoliation prevents accumulations of cellular debris (sebum, toxins & dead skin cells) and also encourages rapid renewal of fresh skin. The physical act of exfoliation also stimulates blood flow which is vital to skin health.

Body wraps are a common spa treatment that can serve a number of different functions.
What are Body Wraps?
Body wraps are a type of spa treatment and they are designed to either slim and tone the body, hydrate or firm the skin, or relax and soothe the muscles. The common denominator in all body wraps is that you are wrapped in something – mud or treated bandages for example – in order to gain a therapeutical benefit. Some body wraps have the additional benefits of relieving tired or heavy legs and aching joints, easing inflammation, and helping to flush toxins from the body through sweating.
What You Need to Know About Body Wraps
Before coming in for a body wrap treatment, you should bring with you your swimwear, or be ok with nudity or use a disposable underwear. Please avoid shaving for 24 hours before the treatment. Sunbathing should be avoided, as should alcohol and heavy meals before the treatment.
Always tell the spa therapist if you are pregnant or think you might be, as many spa treatments are not suitable for expecting women. Other people that should avoid body wraps include those with:
• high blood pressure
• heart conditions
The Body Wrap Process
First, you will change into your paper underwear or swimwear in privacy. The skin may then be exfoliated in order to remove dead skin cells. If you need to have damp skin for the wrap, you will be asked to take a quick shower. After the solution is applied to the body, you are then wrapped in heated bandages or thermal blankets and left to rest. While you are resting, the heat relaxes the muscles, opens the pores, and encourages sweating so that toxins are flushed from the body. You are then unwrapped and rinsed before being moisturised.
The Different Types of Body Wraps
There are several different types of body wraps that you can choose from in a day spa setting. Some of these include:
• Chocolate wrap – chocolate is recognised for its anti-aging and toning properties. It stimulates your endorphins, softens the skin, tones the skin, and plumps out wrinkles.
• Thalasso or seaweed wrap – this is a combination of seawater and seaweed and it hydrates and firms the skin.
• Mud wrap – a layer of therapeutic mud is applied to the skin to detoxify, cleanse, and firm the skin. The anti-stress properties of the mud eases water retention and cleanses the pores by drawing out impurities.
• Clay wrap – is similar to a mud wrap and is often mixed with aromatherapy oils.
• Herbal wrap – uses herbs selected for their nourishing properties. The herbs are blended with oils and steeped in very hot water. Cloth sheets are then soaked in the solution and wrapped around the body. It removes dead skin cells and nourishes the skin.
• Oil wrap – aromatherapy oils are used to moisturise dry or dehydrated skin.
