Review - Contour Body Wrap

Last week I booked in a little R&R time and one of the treatments I had was a contour body wrap.
This treatment is designed to detox and shape the body. The gel and the bandages remove the natural water from the skin, so acts as a diuretic, nourishes the skin as it works in-conjunction with the gel or product to stimulates the lymphatic system to draw out the impurities.

This treatment is not for a long term weight fix but it's ideal for pre-holiday as it primes the skin, meaning that you get an even tan and it can help mask the appearance of cellulite. Can also be great if you have a special occasion and want to wriggle into that fabulous little party dress.
There are many different wraps that you can have such as mud and sea weed that all have natural benefits to stimulate the skin. I had a contour body wrap with bandages rather than linen strips or what looks like cellophane, with  body brushing and exfoliation. 

First all my vital measurements were taken, then I was body brushed. To me it was like a lovely big scratch, though a little embarrassing, as I was stood there semi naked, clutching my boobs in cloud of dead skin. Then a beautiful smelling exfoliant was massaged into my skin and washed of with a warm mitt and water.    

Next was for the contour gel, this was quickly massaged onto my skin, first into my legs and tummy then the bandages wrapped around tightly. Then my arms and upper abdomen. My chest was only lightly wrapped and all my limbs were individually wrapped and not bound to my body. Once all wrapped I had to be in them for an hour. I was offered a Indian head massage, which was a real treat!
In my bandages
After all the bandages were taken off I was then measured again and here's the results -


I lost a combined total of 7 inches, the only place I really noticed the loss was around my bingo wings!

Is this treatment for you?
No if you have veracious veins, Kidney disease, if you're breast feeding or suffer with high or low blood pressure.  

How long does the results last?

I have been advised that it will last 3-6 days. I could have just had just my arms or legs wrapped rather my whole body which I think I will try next time. If this was being used in conjunction as part a weight lost programme it's ideal to have one of these every 3 weeks.
