Maria Martin may not be Santa’s Vice President of Presentation, but she can certainly wrap. She applies this talent in assisting clients in their efforts to look and feel slimmer. As owner of Forever Slender and a certified fitness and nutrition specialist, she focuses on weight loss, using wraps and sauna cocoons to help clients detoxify, burn calories, and loose up to 15 inches. She presents a number of wraps, such as seaweed clay, aloe-herb solution, or infrared blankets—which are what NASA scientists cuddle under during movies. She places clients in Alpha 2010 sauna massages, enabling them to sweat out toxins and burn many calories. Maria also offers an ionic foot detox, which activates a mild microcurrent to pull toxins from thousands of foot pores soaking in sea-salt water. As a further testament to Maria’s diverse range of beauty-focused services, she offers custom airbrush tans to bronze skin and further reduce the appearance of cellulite.
