The shape saviors at Montgomery Slender Solutions sculpt bodies into frame-worthy frames and eradicate impurities to facilitate greater functionality. During the 60-minute body-lift wrap, corporal canvases are swathed in porous elastic bandages that have been soaked in a specially formulated solution containing herbs, vitamins, and minerals. The mixture is designed to reduce the appearance of cellulite and crop circles, increase metabolism, decrease stress, and leave skin smoother than a velvet bean. Body wrapees can lose up to a total of 30 inches in one session, resulting in an instantly slimmer look without the use of fun-house mirrors. Customers who opt for the detoxifying foot bath can sit back and relax as harmful substances are extracted through the flippers, leaving the body cleansed, rejuvenated, and less likely to harm lick-happy bulldogs.
