When archaeologists demummified Pharaoh Narmer, the unifier of Upper and Lower Egypt, they were so amazed by his smooth, radiant skin that they barely noticed he was still alive. Mirror the magic of his preservation-style pampering with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a spatacular five body-wrap package from Allvera Body Wrap & Wellness Center in Grove City (a $250 value).
Using all-natural ingredients, Allvera's aloe-soaked wraps are infused with herbal elements designed to whittle your waist into shape like a mouse nibbling a pear. Once you've stripped down to your undergarmentwears (or a bathing suit), one of Allvera's expert aestheticians will heat the herbally soaked cotton bands to 150 degrees and wrap you from abdomen to hips. While inside the cocoon, Allvera's fat-despising formula will attack subcutaneous cellulite and assist the body in flushing out harmful toxins. Stretch marks will fade and inches will vanish as the pressure of the wrap compresses and shrinks fat cells till they're puny and powerless. Allvera claims that many patients lose 5–10 inches from their waist during their first visit and as much as 10 by their fifth.
Valid at the Grove City location only.
- Detoxifying treatments are the core of Allvera, which opened in 2008. Body wraps, where the body is layered in aloe-soaked fabric strips and kept insulated with blankets or a plastic suit, help clients lose inches by tightening and firming the skin. – Brittany Kress
