The experienced professionals at Lyn-Mar Nails & Spa cosset bodies and feet with a host of gentle treatments designed to detoxify and soothe. After an initial consultation with the client, a spa technician measures the body while it is clad in a bathing suit, underwear, or invisible spacesuit. The staffer then wraps the frame in a soothing mud or healing aloe compound and remeasures the body, which takes about 30 minutes. Clients then drink about 2 litres of water for another 30 minutes while an observer checks to be sure they aren’t dehydrated or transforming into a particularly relaxed butterfly. Both wraps can help swaddled customers lose 5–15 inches per session. For hardworking feet, an ionic foot detox delivers hydrogen ions to soles and is said to boost energy and circulation, ease nerves, and restore pH balance while customers imbibe complimentary coffee and tea.
