Like wrapping paper, body wraps sheath objects in mystery until they’re ready to spring out from a boss’s birthday cake or unravel unceremoniously on the escalator. Unveil a new body with today's Groupon: for $59, you get two infrared body wraps at Luna Fitness in Tempe (a $150 value).
A comprehensive health club for women, Luna Fitness helps clients understand their bodily needs during each monthly cycle through fitness classes and figure-shaping spa treatments. Burn up to 1,400 calories per session sans arson charges with two infrared body wraps, used to shrink cellulite and boost metabolism.
The one-hour treatment encases fully clothed forms in a Formostar infrared body wrap, which employs infrared rays to heat the body and burrow beneath fat tissue without the use of messy chemicals or creams. As cells warm, blood flow wends through fatty areas, causing the tissue to soften and break up. Newly liberated fat is released back into the wilds of the bloodstream before being burned up as energy or swallowed whole by peckish river rafters.
Since sweat glands are stimulated during the treatment, it is important to hydrate before, during, and after each wrap lest the body lose its sponge-like ability to absorb knowledge. Luna Fitness recommends a change of clothes for postwrap comfort, and guests should sport all-cotton long-sleeve shirts and long pants free of metal snaps, buttons, or Olympic pin collections during each session. Bring a book or DVD to pass the time, or practice your finest Otzi the Iceman impression as the wrap works its magic.
