The Surprising Health Benefits Of Body Wraps

Massage_Pic2Have you ever wondered how many toxins are in your body? More important, how are they affecting your overall health? Even though you may maintain a relatively healthy lifestyle, environmental factors and internal exposures to toxins are almost impossible to avoid. Luckily, being able to rid your body of built up toxins is easier than you might think.

Everyday we are constantly exposed to internal and external pollutants that can negatively affect your immune system. It is important to find time to get rid of these unwanted toxins so your body can function at its best. One way to get rid of built of toxins is to get a detoxifying body treatment, like a body wrap. A body wrap is designed to improve the texture and appearance of your skin by helping rid the body of excess fluids and toxins. This can be done in a variety of ways by tightly wrapping your body in a type of cloth, elastic, or a thermal blanket to promote sweating which aids in getting rid of excess body fluid and toxins.

Body wraps use detoxifying organic materials, such as mud or aloe Vera, to draw toxins from the body and soften skin. Most body scrubs use a blend of oils with fine and coarse grains, and are followed with lotion to further soften skin. The skin is slightly compressed as well as the underlying fat cells that lie beneath it. Any toxins within this area will be squeezed up and out of the skin via the pores where they will then be absorbed by the clay that has been applied to your skin. Some benefits of body wraps are; deep relaxation, decrease in stress, followed by lower blood pressure and inch loss.

Luckily, Glen Ivy Spa in Valencia offers detoxifying body treatments to cleanse and revitalize you body. Glen Ivy Spa offers a eucalyptus body wrap, eucalyptus body wrap with a sugar scrub, and a eucalyptus body wrap followed with a Swedish massage and sugar scrub all for an affordable price.
