What is a body wrap?
Gently wrapped and covered by nourishing creams and nourishing oils – a body wrap is one of the standard applications in spas, wellness hotels, beauty salons and massage practices.
A body wrap is a body pack enriched with oils, creams, herbs or other additives. The practitioner can apply the pack directly to the body or put the mixture on cloth sheets and wrap the body with them. Particularly effective is the application in our Soft-Pack®system. In this case, the nourishing packs are applied directly to the body, which is finally wrapped in a special film. This allows the creams and body wraps to take optimum effect. Due to the occlusion effect the skin’s ability to absorb active ingredients can increase by up to 10 times. In combination with heat, the skin absorbs active ingredients particularly well. The effect differs from body wrap to body wrap, depending on the products and ingredients used. Body wraps with firming algae, pain-relieving moor mud, nourishing creams or fango packs are quite popular.
