Body wraps were invented by the Egyptians, who somehow knew mankind would one day need mummies to play the saxophone solos in Halloween party songs. Do the mash with today’s Groupon: for $29, you get a spa package at Slim and Tone (a $65 total value). The package includes:
- One 30-minute Silver Cloud massage (a $15 value)
- One 50-minute Formostar infrared body wrap (a $50 value)<p>
Slim and Tone assists clients in leading healthier lives by providing weight-loss assistance and stress-alleviating massage beds. Clients recline on a massage bed during the 30-minute Silver Cloud massage, which is enhanced by jade rollers and far-infrared heat. Heated rollers massage the back and legs to break up muscle knots deep within tissues, and acupressure along the spine and legs boosts chi energy to foster a greater sense of wellness and the ability to see through circus tents. The massage stimulates the lymphatic system in an effort to flush away toxins, and the infrared heat boosts metabolism for greater overall health.
Next, clients lie back on a comfortable massage table and don a set of special silicone bands during the Formostar infrared body wrap, which gradually warms the body to stimulate optimal circulation and induce perspiration. The wrap’s gentle heat penetrates the skin to help dissipate fat deposits, cellulite, and toxic relationships between ligaments and joints. The treatment can also assuage muscle aches, arthritis pain, and discomfort from injuries incurred while playing sports or opening pickle jars with cricket bats.
