Body wraps were invented by the Egyptians, who somehow knew mankind would one day need mummies to play the saxophone solos in Halloween party songs. Do the mash with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a 90-minute hydrating body wrap at Xanadu Med Spa in Fort Collins (a $130 value).
Xanadu Med Spa's cadre of skin specialists and medically trained technicians apply heat-insulating body wraps in 90-minute sessions. First, staff gently exfoliate bodies with a rich sugar scrub, then apply a hydrating body mask with artisanal care, creating a corporeal canvas as eye-pleasing as van Gogh's Starry Navel. Recumbent clients are then wrapped for about 20 minutes in a special heat-insulating material that helps the mask's moisture penetrate the skin's surface. Once the wrap is removed, physique stewards massage the mask from the skin with steamed towels and apply body butter, much as Richard Nixon's advisers removed the stage jowls from his face every night.
