Body Wraps & Weight Loss
Body wraps can help tone and tighten the skin, improve blood circulation, detoxify the body and help mobilize fat so it can be eliminated from the body naturally. You do not need any special equipment other than a mixing bowl, heating pot and wrapping sheets like thin towels.
Body wraps work in two stages: absorption and squeezing (compaction). In the absorption stage you apply a substance on your body by "wraps". Once the pores of skin are opened, the fluids are "extracted" or "absorbed" by the substance and the bandage.
There are several absorbents: sea clay, seaweed, herbal, mineral and aloe vera. The effect of the wrap is determined by the ingredients used.
Squeezing is simply compacting the tissues together after the "interstitial fluid" has been extracted. Once the fluids have been extracted, there are empty "pockets" between the cells. So if somehow we can squeeze them closer together, the end result should be a thinner and leaner looking body. The body bandages and body wraps squeeze the body part and squeezing together the empty "pockets".
A simple body wrap can be a mixture of a clay and some salt. A more complex wrap contains herbs, essential oils and nutritive ingredients. The exact proportions of ingredients are not important but the repeated use will be useful. You can add a small amount of nutrition oil (upto 2 tablespoons) if your skin is too dry.
