A body wrap is like a hug—it makes you feel better as long as it's not being administered by a bear. Embrace today’s Groupon: for $55, you get one SlenderTone wrap and your choice of an Aqua-Chi foot detox or two natural spray-tan applications at Nurturing U Spa in Burton (up to a $125 value).
Long-time Suddenly Slender clients and product proponents, Nurturing U Spa owners Carol and Marla now share these torso-tautening mineral-body-wrap methods with the Flint area. The SlenderTone wrap claims to harness the electrical fields of vitamins, minerals, herbs, and enzymes to tighten, tone, and reshape the body into a visibly slimmer figure without dieting or laborious exercise (a $90 value). A Nurturing U Spa aesthetician envelops the body in a non-dehydrating cocoon, then encourages patients to engage in mild physical activity or strenuous word-search puzzle to promote circulation while the treatment takes effect. After about an hour, once-curvy caterpillars emerge as smoother, more slender butterflies.
Groupon buyers can also either pamper their shoe-stuffers with an Aqua-Chi foot detox treatment (a $35 value) or use two natural spray-tan applications to buttress their lies about vacationing on the equator (a $30 value).
