Despite their ability to neatly wrap food, tortillas are rarely used as body wraps due to their propensity to attract refried beans. Slim your well-seasoned silhouette with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get a one-hour SlenderTone body wrap and a 15-to-30-minute consultation at The Body Wrap Shoppe in Dunedin (a $150 value).
The experienced staff at The Body Wrap Shoppe shapes physiques and improves the appearance of cellulite using a cocoon made of specially formulated mineral solutions and a 100% hypo-allergenic wrap. After a 15-to-30-minute consultation, guests strip to their skivvies and, while standing up, slip into a porous fabric wrap that gives them free range of motion and bears a striking resemblance to King Tut's tube top. Three times during the SlenderTone wrap, a specialist applies additional warm solution to maintain a comfortable temperature, and customers are asked to perform light exercises to keep blood flowing. Once 60 minutes have passed, the wrap falls away and unveils a more slender soul sack that may appear up to 30 inches slimmer. Unlike sauna treatments or thermal wraps, the SlenderTone wrap relies on its ingredients rather than dehydration to tighten and tone torsos and more, yielding longer-lasting results.
Due to the hydro-intensive nature of the treatment, visitors should bring an extra set of undergarments to change into afterwards. Results can be seen after a single session, and as few as two sessions can help those hoping to fit into their favorite pair of jeans or Jiminy Cricket's cummerbund.
The Body Wrap Shoppe
The Body Wrap Shoppe staff are used to hearing gasps once customers emerge from their casings to try on formerly too-tight clothing. Their hypoallergenic wraps strive to visibly subtract signs of cellulite, aging, and loose skin from both physiques and faces. They differ their treatments from traditional plastic wraps by relying on natural ingredients—delivered via swathes of porous bandages—rather than dehydration and supplementary bear hugs to achieve a slimmer look. Personal consultations also ensure that each guest goes into his or her cocoon feeling informed and cozy.
