SEAWEED DETOX & SLIMMING WRAPS
We invite you to enjoy new THALASPA PROCEDURES FROM FRANCE.
The Thalaspa range is developed and produced in Brittany, in their laboratory in France.
Thalaspa was built using priceless resources from the sea using marine biotechnology.
The products are made from minerals, trace elements, sea clay, algae, seaweed to offer remineralizing and revitalizing treatments in the quest for innovative well-being.
Concerned with their territorial footprint, and to preserve natural resources of the oceans, they come from controlled areas of the sea and comply with all regulatory practices.
These wraps respond to warmth and heat so in some cases I have combined them with the infrared sauna blanket. Without the blanket you will be covered with cling wrap and placed under a warm heated sheet.
The wrap looks and smells like it comes from the sea so it is not perfumed. I have found these wraps work far better than creams and chemically made ones. They smell like seaweed and algae. It comes in a powdered form and gets mixed just before application. The one wrap in the video below is ready-mixed and just gets massaged into the skin. I then remove it after about 30 minutes, from your body, with warm towels soaked in the Thalaspa range of Bolneo Sea Salts.
Here are some of the benefits:
They provide trace elements and minerals for your body
Helps to firm the skin
Helps to treat overweight problems
Eases and prevents joint pain
To benefit from this treatment try to combine it with a clean, healthy diet. Drink lots of water.
Do 30 min of walking a few times a week or any suitable excercise.
What is a body wrap?
A body wrap is a body treatment that assists in enhancing a healthy appearance of skin. Body wraps have different and unique functions that affect different types of skin, (oily, dry, sensitive, rough, etc.), and most wraps have healing qualities that lead to a healthier looking skin. The benefits include:
1. getting rid of excess fluids,
2. skin tightening/softening,
4. dead skin removal,
5. cm reduction,
8. cellulite reduction.
A mineral or oil-rich lotion formula is applied to the torso and limbs depending on the person’s skin type, and then the applied part of the body is completely wrapped in either cotton, plastic film or a special bandage called Mylar depending on the requirements of the body wrap.
This moisturizes the skin by removing excess dirt or toxins.
Some people prefer a body scrub before the treatment as it results in opening of the pores of the skin.
Different types of body wraps
Detox and mineral body wraps
Detox wraps can be made out of mud, clay, algae, seaweed or gel-based wraps that help in removing the toxins from the skin. After the body mask is applied to the skin, the client is covered in plastic and kept in the ‘blanket’ for 20-25 minutes. These products assist the body in stimulating the circulation, drawing out impurities and giving the right minerals to the body that it might be missing. After the given time, the body mask is washed off and the beauty aesthetician will apply lotion,
Hydrating body wraps
Hydrating body wraps or masks are gel-based wraps help to calm, revive and rejuvenate tired skin by use of lotions, gels and creams. With hydrating body wraps the skn is scrubbed beforehand, as the cream could sit on the dead skin cells of the person. Hydrating masks help in exfoliating and hydrating the skin type if it is dry or flaky. These wraps are very popular during winter time.
Slimming wraps are known to take cm's off certain parts of the body by tightening and smoothing out cellulite. Commonly known as body cocoon or a body mask.
Depending on the requirement of the wrap, some may need you to be tightly wrapped in bandages soaked in a mineral solution while the more common body wraps require you to to be wrapped in cling wrap or a plastic body sheet. The wrap is applied and performs various functions depending on whether it is a clay wrap, a seaweed or algae wrap or a slimming gel or cream.
The client is measured before and after so that one can tell how many cms have been lost. The effect is temporary, but it is a great treatment if one has an event coming up and wishes to look slimmer.
Infrared body wraps
With the advancement in technology and the rapidly increasing amount of research, beauty and skincare manufacturers are now introducing innovative and highly effective products into the market. Infrared is essentially the band of light perceived as heat. It cannot be viewed with the naked eye, but the human body can feel it from its heat. Infrared waves heat the body without heating the air in between through a process called conversion. Far Infrared Rays can penetrate organic substances, including the human body, 2-3 cm's deep to create a uniform heating effect and stimulate the ‘chi’ energy flow.
The intensity of infrared energy produced by the body constantly varies. When this energy is high, we feel healthy and are better able to fight ailments. Lower levels of infrared make us more susceptible to diseases, premature aging, fatigue and a myriad of other problems. Exposing the body to infrared heat with infrared body wraps can make up for the decline in the intensity of ‘chi’ and restore the body’s function to its optimal level.
Parafango is a mixture of paraffin wax and dehydrated mud (in Italian, “fango” means “mud”). It is a perfect combination for treating cellulite and speeding up the loss of inches, due to the thermal properties of paraffin and the detoxifying effects of the mud. During the treatment, the warm Parafango stimulates the lymphatic flow in the body and draws out toxins from around the fat cells, resulting in immediate, noticeable results. Differences can be seen and felt after just 1treatment; however a series of 10 is recommended for optimum results.
