Body wrap treatment at the spa

My girlfriend always nagging me to take her to spa. Spa these days costs a fortune and I don’t really want to waste money on those type of leisure. Well, not now but maybe someday I will let her go to a spa. Well, showing some interest, I asked her what exactly she wants to do at the spa and she said she wanted to get some bodywraps. I just nodded like I knew exactly what it was. Haha. So for guys out there, here’s some education on spa treatments.

Body wraps are also known as body cocoon or body mask at certain spas and locations. Body wraps are usually a treatment where ace bandages or plastic wrap was tightly wrapped around the body that cause weight loss quickly through vasodilation. Nowadays, body wraps are a treatment where you apply algae, mud, clay, lotion, cream or seaweed around your body and then the body parts are wrapped for around 20 minutes to keep it warm. After that, it will be rinsed and lotions will be applied on the parts.


Usually the main goal of body wraps are to lose weight quickly through vasodilation. Vasodilation is where your blood vessels widening up resulted from relaxation of smooth muscle cells within the vessel walls. These days, the treatments using algae, mud, clay, lotion, crea or seaweed are detox treatments that helps the body to remove toxins from the body through metabolic stimulation. Some other body wraps using shea butter and rich lotions are simply treatments that helps softening the body skins.

So I’m my opinion as a guy, I will go for the detox body wrap treatment. I don’t see any good in softening skin body wrap treatment or slimmer body wrap treatment but women will always be women. They will care for their skin as much as they can. Just a short reminder, BODY WRAPS is not a MASSAGE ! If you want a massage too, ask before getting the package. Some have massage included in the body wraps treatment, some separate both into two different packages!
