Has anyone ever had a body wrap done? I have because I had a gift certificate and wanted to see if it really was as slimming as they claimed! Supposedly mineral body wraps will remove toxins from your body and leave you inches thinner. Here was my experience:
They have you strip down to your undies, then measure your thighs, arms, stomach and record the numbers. You are then rubbed down with some gross looking concoction and wrapped in saran wrap, then ace bandages REALLY tightly. You put on a thermal running suit, which is really hard considering you are wrapped so tightly - almost painfully. Then you are put into a room into a chair and a warming blanket it laid on top of you. You are left for 30 minutes. Then someone will take you and remove all the ridiculousness and re-measure you. I lost a few inches here and there.
I did this out of curiosity but wouldn`t do it again. I did notice a slight thinning effect but nothing I couldn`t get from avoiding carbs for one day. I think it was mainly from being squeezed so tightly that the skin just got compressed. I wouldn`t recommend a body wrap to anyone because I think they are just a rip off!
