Inch Loss Body Wrap FAQ

  • How does the Body Wrap work?

    The Body Wrap works by shrinking the size of your fat cells. Herbal extracts, minerals and amino nutrients are applied warm to open pores and draw out toxic accumulations from the skin and soft tissue layers. This aids the body to further breakdown fat.

    Pressure wraps compact the detoxified fatty tissues that are left, reducing all over measurements in the areas that need it most. The herbs, and sea vegetation, and minerals provide nutrients which penetrate our cell walls and cause the lipids (fatty material) inside our cells to be released into the lymphatic system.

    The fat is then circulated naturally and carried out through the normal elimination process of the body. The Body Wrap releases toxins and replaces them with minerals your body needs. The aloe base works as a carrier, transporting this unique formula to the adipose layer, breaking down hardened toxic tissue (cellulite) on contact. This results in inch loss, detoxification, and smoother and firmer skin.

    Consider your skin is your largest living and BREATHING organ of your body. Every day, your body is assaulted by harmful air pollution, smoking, harmful ingredients from lotions, soaps, perfumes, dangerous cleaning chemicals, UV rays, and even the wind. Harmful chemicals get trapped in our fat cells. It behooves us to clean our body INSIDE and OUT. Doing Body Wraps help you do this. So besides shrinking your fat cells and reducing inches, you benefit from a more toxic-free body.

  • Has Body Wrapping been clinically tested and safe?

    In Japan, research was conducted at Chukyo University by Kagemoto Yuasa, M.D. "We found it to be very effective with fast action...The herbal solution has been noted to burn subcutaneous fat and cellulite within an hour and that gives fast reduction of fat in thickness, which we were able to measure through ultrasonic photography."

    The Herbal Body Wrap was first originally formulated in Baden Baden, Germany. The original purpose was intended to cleanse the body of toxins. Though when applied, it was discovered that fatty material (which can be extremely toxic) was also pulled from the body. The inch loss benefit was actually a side effect to the original purpose of the product. It was noted that the same herbs, historically, were used for therapeutic purposes by indigenous inhabitants in ancient health practices. The Herbal Wrap has also been proven to work effectively through hydrostatic weight testing.

  • How long does the inch loss last?

    As long as you follow a healthy diet and lifestyle, the lost inches should not return for at least thirty days. As toxins gradually build up in your body tissue, inches will gradually return over time, depending entirely on your diet and lifestyle. Avoiding toxin-laden foods will substantially retard the inch gain.

  • Is this a safer alternative to obesity surgery or lipo suction?

    Yes. And it costs you much, much less. However, it's impossible to reduce the NUMBER of fat cells in your body without surgery. Instead, this safe alternative reduces the SIZE of your fat cells. You get the same effect as surgery (unwanted inches) in a much safer way. You don't risk the potentially dangerous complications of surgery either.

  • How will I look?

    Most people look 6-20 inches (composite whole body loss) slimmer on their first wrap alone. We always take into consideration that each person is different and may have specific goals in mind. So note, results vary.

  • How do I prepare for the Body Wrap?

    Start with clean skin: be sure not to apply any lotions, oils or creams 6 hours before wrapping.

  • How long does a Body Wrap take?

    A Body Wrap session takes 1 hour. Allow an extra 20-30 minutes in your session for measuring your body using our body measurement charts.

  • How often can I do Body Wraps?

    The Body Wrap is a safe and effective process and you may do it as often as you wish, however you continue losing inches for 72 hours after the wrap. We suggest for maximum inch loss results that a series of wraps, at least 4-days to a week apart be applied until you reach your maximum results. 4-6 applications may need to be done until you've reached your maximum results. After that, many do 1 Body Wrap a month to maintain their results, and because it makes the skin so soft and supple.

  • Is this just a temporary water loss?

    No. The Terra Spa Body Wrap is a firming and toning process which produces results by detoxifying and contouring flesh. There is very little water loss. You will lose more inches than pounds. Be sure to drink plenty of water and rest.

  • What should I do after the Body Wrap?

    It takes about 10 days for the skin to fully adapt to the tissue reduction. You can assist this process to produce maximum results by:

    • Avoid toxic food and drink, such as salt, sugar, fried foods, caffeine, carbonated drink and alcohol for several days after your wrap.
    • Drink 8-10 glasses of water per day to continue the detoxifying process through the bodies natural elimination system. Flushing your system this way will even help you to lose weight.
    • Do not apply lotions, oils, or creams to the wrapped areas or take a bath, swim, for at least 6 hours after your wrap. Then bathe in lukewarm water when needed.
    • After 3 days, Take a hot bath (or shower) to open your pores and flush the toxins out.
