What Makes Our Wraps Different
Beware… Not all body wraps are created equal!
Here is a helpful guide to explain the differences between Lighthouse Health & Body Makeover Wraps and other wraps you may have heard about.
At Lighthouse Health & Body Makeover, we use “Internal Cleansing Wraps.”
Our internal cleansing wraps use herbal formulations that start externally and work internally. This type of wrap aids in the removal of wastes that have become trapped in vulnerable parts of your body. It is simply a cleansing process of the tissue underneath the skin, and helps restore elasticity to loose, flabby skin. It does not dehydrate and age the skin- this type of wrap is the most beneficial to the body!
We do NOT use salt solution wraps, mineral salt wraps, seaweed wraps, or liquid herbal wraps- All of these wraps promote toxins and water to be expelled through the pores internally to externally. Though there is a minimal detoxification benefit, these processes dehydrate and age the skin through water loss.
If there is an immediate weight loss after a wrap, this indicates that it is a water loss wrap. With the internal cleanse wrap that we offer, there is no weight loss for at least 72 hours.
With a water loss wrap, you may be required to wear a rubber suit or booties to promote sweat and catch the body hydration. These wraps are generally messy, uncomfortable and potentially dangerous. The inches will come back as you ingest liquids again to replace hydration.
We do NOT offer clay wraps, as they act as a poultice to draw impurities from the skin. This is a dehydrating wrap that tends to age the skin.
Beware of wraps that use certain cellulite creams. The main ingredient in many of these creams is aminophyllin. This chemical is an asthma medication, which was formulated to shrink the mucous membranes so a patient could breathe. It does exactly the same externally, shrinking the cells of any moisture. This treatment encourages water loss, dehydration, and is the most damaging of all cellulite treatments, as it is putting a chemical into the body’s blood stream.
At Lighthouse Health and Body Makeover we have an Anti-Cellulite Lotion that you can apply at home to help maintain your inch loss. Patients who come in for a series of body wraps use Anti-Cellulite Lotion in between their wraps and find they continue to lose inches!
Anti-Cellulite Lotion has the ability to maximize and preserve the contouring, tightening and inch loss achieved through our body wraps. Essential nutrients increase circulation, helping to condition and tone the skin.
