Days are warming up here in Florida, and while I stop to smell the blooming roses this time of year, here come the thoughts of summer, beach, sand, pool, and more. But am I ready for all the new adventures? Not quite, since my workout routine took about a 1 month hiatus. Needless to say, I’ve begun the exercise but I needed a quick boost and more so an incentive to stay consistent; so I scheduled an appointment at a quaint spa, A Caring Touch Skin Therapy. The reason being, to get a body firming & toning wrap. Despite, the many opinions about this wrap I was advised it works. This type of body wrap is designed to give a lending hand to those parts of your bod where it cannot burn fat properly on it’s own nor rid you of toxins that otherwise remain stuck underneath your shell.
Owner, Rhonda McDaniels greeted me with a form to complete from skin issues to eating habits, as it’s important to know in order for her to determine your needs and fulfill them for your skin or body. I was then directed into the treatment room where she begins by explaining the process:
Step 1: Measurements are taken of the arms, midriff, stomach, hips, thighs, calves in order to track any loss after the wrap treatment is done
Step 2: An allover body scrub, to open skin pores and activate the lymphatics
Step 3: Cotton cloth pieces are soaked in warm water and wrapped around you from shoulder to ankles
Step 4: You’re covered in thin foil paper plus sheets to preserve the warmth while waiting 35-40 minutes in dim lighting and relaxation sounds
During the waiting time, Rhonda proceeds to give me a facial massage in key areas which will also awaken the lymphatics. Time passed all too quickly, as the cloths were removed and measurements were re-taken when, to my surprise I’d lost a total of 13.5 inches overall. Even more so thrilled about the 4.5 I’d lost in my hip & thigh area alone!
My skin felt smoother and the appearance of minor cellulite appear no more. I am totally pleased with the results of just 1 treatment, although at least 4 are recommended if you want to achieve more.
May I also advise? Do try the body wrap as a quick solution for wearing that shapely dress that’s been waiting in your closet to a night out on the town. A Caring Touch Skin Therapy lived up to its name, giving kind, professional service by Rhonda who says she truly enjoys helping others reach their body image goals.
