In one of the most miraculous transformations in the natural world, an ugly caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon and emerges six to eight weeks later as either a beautiful butterfly or a much-uglier caterpillar. Revel in a more predictable and effective beautifying treatment with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a one-hour body-contour wrap (a $130 value) at Natural Health Solutions in Apple Valley.
Dr. Brandon Mannie leads a staff of professionals trained in the application of all-natural body-contour wraps. During the treatment's eight-step process, staff members slather patients with exfoliating and contouring creams designed to dilate blood vessels, increase metabolic function, and promote circulatory and lymphatic flow. A specialized plastic wrap then envelops the body and aids in the absorption of the creams. The process keeps undue perspiration to a minimum, preventing dehydration like a water fountain on the sun. Potential benefits include reshaping the body by banishing trapped wastes and cellulite and hydrating and smoothing the skin to slip 'n slide levels.
As patients wait for the creams to permeate their skin, they enjoy a reflexology treatment consisting of skilled manipulation of their hands and feet. A rich brown-and-red color scheme surrounds patients as they undergo their wrap-up on padded treatment beds. Natural Health Solutions recommends a series of three-to-six wraps over a period of several weeks to achieve optimal results.
The Wrap Advantage
Body wraps increase circulation in target areas. When coupled with botanical extracts and gentle warmth, this can have a range of positive effects. Those effects are the goals of The Wrap Advantage, and they can include everything from weight loss to smoother skin. Some of this takes place through a process called lipolysis, in which the ingredients applied with the wrap help break down fat cells. Wraps are also intended to release the toxins that can build up in fats, as well as lessen cellulite, and the staff at The Wrap Advantage can help each patron identify their own health and aesthetic goals.
