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 $49, you get a spa contour body wrap at Xanadu (a $125 value).
Xanadu cultivates inch loss and body detoxification with a 75-minute spa contour body wrap. In the comfort of a private room, gentle fingers prime physiques with an exfoliating body scrub to coerce away dead skin cells and temporary tattoos of local news anchors' faces. A chemical-free contour cream can stimulate circulation in the lymphatic system as an aesthetician painlessly binds torsos in a tight plastic film. For roughly 60 minutes, guests relaxingly steep as their therapeutic cocoon helps to coax trapped waste from connective-tissue hiding spots. Afterward, an aesthetician conjures the excitement of Christmas morning to ensure that all the wrapping is swiftly removed and then caps the treatment by rubbing in any remaining cream.
Clients should feel free to wear their own swimwear during the session, and though the wrap is dehydration free, it is advised that clients consume at least half of their weight in ounces of water to maximize the evacuation of toxins. Xanadu also advises that clients refrain from showering or operating heavy slip 'n' slides immediately following the treatment.
Xanadu Salon and Spa
In Xanadu Salon and Spa's elegantly appointed private treatment rooms, talented aestheticians pamper bodies inside and out with head-to-toe pulchritude services. Insides feel refreshed after ionic footbaths, which pull toxins from the body to leave patrons feeling lighter than bubbles full of helium. Façades get new looks after facials and body wraps, which utilize a carefully curated selection of sea salts, mineral-rich black mud, and Dermalogica skincare products, as well as hair coiffing and massages.
