How Body Wraps Can Help Your Overall Health

By Michael Gordon

Body wraps are just one of many health spa and salon services that are offered in conjunction with phrases like “natural,” “rejuvenating,” “detoxifying,” and “herbal.” While these things all sound immensely healthful, there is no single service or product that will yield results like weight loss, detoxification, or body toning by itself. Results like that are achieved only through a combination of lifestyle choices and a commitment to those choices. However, if you are looking for methods and services that can work in conjunction with the healthy lifestyle choices you’ve already made, then there are indeed healthful benefits to body wraps.

There are literally dozens of different types of body wraps — from seaweed to herbs to the no-wrap infrared wrap. Not all health spas offer all varieties of wraps and there is no single answer to the question, “Which type is best?” The most basic types of body wraps that are most widely available include mineral and herbal body wraps as well as clay body wraps.

A body wrap works by helping to eliminate waste the body sheds through the skin and by promoting the absorption of specific ingredients. Obviously, the skin is the key organ involved and one of the biggest beneficiaries. Though you are sure to notice a difference in your skin immediately following a body wrap, softer, more vibrant skin is not a significant health benefit.

The greatest health benefit a beauty wrap offers is definitely a reduction in stress levels. Some people fear the interaction and contact that is imminent with a body wrap but much like a massage, there is a level of relaxation that absolves any inhibitions. Relieving stress has significant impacts on the body’s overall health, including lower blood pressure, less muscle tension and increased energy.

Though a body wrap alone is not a cure-all, it is an ancillary service that you can treat yourself to. Just as aromatherapists have studied the right blend of fragrances that trigger specific responses, a variety of body wraps have been shown to have varying results. By carefully blending the ingredients used in a body wrap, different responses can be achieved.

The ability of the skin to absorb the various minerals contained in a body wrap treatment is often greater than if you were to try a mineral or herbal supplement, much of which may not be absorbed by the body. This is why a body wrap can provide a different level of health enhancement not attainable through other means.

Though there are a variety of body wraps available that can be applied at home, if you’ve never experienced a full body wrap, it may be best to have one from a trained technician. Before scheduling an appointment, be sure to ask what types of wraps are offered, what is involved, and what ingredients they use. Many mineral wraps are free of aluminum but be sure to ask if it contains any and to what extent as excess aluminum absorption has been linked to some medical conditions.

Though a body wrap can enhance your overall health by supporting your everyday efforts to live better, there are some people who should not have body wraps. Women who are pregnant or nursing and anyone with diabetes or heart conditions should not have a body wrap without first talking to their doctor. Anyone with highly sensitive skin, chronic skin conditions, or contact allergies should avoid body wraps until they’ve talked to their dermatologist.

Whether you are looking for a product or service that rejuvenates your skin, enhances your energy and vitality, or helps cleanse your body, a body wrap can be a good addition to any healthy regime. The good thing about body wraps is you can obtain them periodically when you feel the need, as opposed to other supplemental services that require regularity to be effective.

If you haven’t tried a body wrap yet, explore the possibilities and talk to a trained technician about your expectations and goals. They can guide you towards a product and service that will support your current lifestyle choices and provide you with the service you are looking for.
