Long-time Suddenly Slender clients and product proponents, Nurturing U Spa owners Carol and Marla now share these torso-tautening mineral-body-wrap methods with the Flint area. The SlenderTone wrap claims to harness the electrical fields of vitamins, minerals, herbs, and enzymes to tighten, tone, and reshape the body into a visibly slimmer figure without dieting or laborious exercise (a $90 value). A Nurturing U Spa aesthetician envelops the body in a non-dehydrating cocoon, then encourages patients to engage in mild physical activity or strenuous word-search puzzle to promote circulation while the treatment takes effect. After about an hour, once-curvy caterpillars emerge as smoother, more slender butterflies.
