Inches Away Salon and Day Spa shapes curves and waistlines with leisurely 60-minute rounds of mineral body wrapping. Aestheticians coat clients in mineral-rich solutions before mummifying the body with elastic bandages and untorn ribbons from races never finished. Solutions draw toxins from the pores while replenishing epidermises with nutrients that tighten skin and diminish stores of fat cells. The Slendertone wrap softens skin while trimming inches as clients gently glide on an elliptical machine to bolster circulation and expedite toxin flushing. Clients leave the work to an über-rich balm in the Dreambody wrap, allowing them to trade light physical activity for some rapid eye movement on a massage table or giant flying tortoise, depending on the dream.
