Body Wrapture’s namesake wraps work to tighten the body, and its massages work oppositely to loosen it. Body wrap technician Karen Buckner follows a simple process that can take up to 2.5 hours, or one standard metric Grandpa anecdote. She cloaks the body in mineral-soaked cloths that purge toxins, tighten skin, and expedite weight-loss efforts by shedding excess inches. The spa's licensed massage therapists, on the other hand, are finger-versed in myriad massage modalities. They deploy Swedish, acupressure, sports, or prenatal handiwork—and can also perform less conventional methods, such as percussion, lymphatic drainage, and medieval equine, which involves a knight on horseback riding roughshod over the back.
