Universal contour wrap



If taking a course of wraps, we would recommend that you take them 7-10 days apart. Over a course 3 wraps, the results are excellent. The inch loss is accumulative, and most clients should lose 25” plus over 3 wraps (depending on their size!) it is quite normal for a client to come down a complete dress size, without losing a pound in weight, over a course of 3 wraps.
Clients who are dieting and exercising will have even better results!
Larger clients or even clients that are rather solid in certain areas would definitely benefit from a course of wraps as these areas need to be broken down and it is impos-sible to get maximum results in just 1 treatment.
Because the inches firmed and toned off your body do NOT return after a few glasses of water it is obvious that we can only wrap a client a certain number or time before they become ‘wrapped out’ in order to lose further inches diet and exercise is recom-mended.
However even though you may have become ‘wrapped out’ further wraps will cer-tainly continue to benefit by deep cleansing, contouring. Firming, tightening, detoxi-fying and maintaining the inchloss already achieved.
Ideally wraps should be taken 4-6 weeks apart to maintain the results of the treat-ment.
For maximum results the aftercare MUST be adhered to.
Because of the amount of inchloss that has occurred it will take a week or so for your skin to totally adapt to the inchloss. The clay solution remains in your skin and the detoxification and tightening process can continue for 3-4 days after treatment giving further inchloss!
This process can be assisted by retaining the solution in the skin by avoiding shower-ing for 48 hours, and then only using soap etc on underarms, feet and groin for the next 3 or 4 days. Creams and lotions should be avoided for this period.

Following this procedure for the next 3-4 days will greatly improve the visual results of the skin and this will continue to improve for the next week or two.
After 3-4 days hot showers and plenty of the Detoxifying Shower gel on the entire body will open the pores and eliminate the solution and toxins on which it has continued to act.
There will NOT be any body odour problems for the 3-4 days of solution retention.
After your wrap the more water you can drink the better (not carbonated) Ideally 3 pint plus per day. This helps to flush and rid your body of the impurities that have been broken down.
AVOID THINGS THAT ARE TOXIC FOR A 3-4 DAY PERIOD

  •  TEA AND COFFEE
  •  CAFFEINATED DRINKS OR ENERGY DRINKS
  • SUGAR
  •  SALT
  •  FRIED FOODS

  •  FATTY FOODS

  •  PROCESSED FOODS

  •  ALCOHOL

  • TOBACCO


 


If you normally drink a lot of tea or coffee we recommend that you cut this down or switch to green or herbal teas for this period.

The only place I would trust for a hollywood wax, very quick, painless and thorough, and the Backscratcher nails are AMAZING! Cannot recommend this place highly enough.
