After having a baby, you feel lost in a foreign body. It can be difficult to find a moment alone, much more so to relax and engage with your inner self. This is a time when you need to step up your self-care, not letting it fall to the wayside because of your life changes. You need to calm your body, mind, and spirit. One of the best ways to do this is to have a body wrap at one of your local luxury wellness spas.

A wrap treatment helps you reconnect with your body and soul, while also effectively helping you manage your weight. But what is a wrap treatment and what can it do for you after having a baby?


What is a body wrap treatment?

A wrap treatment is much like a cocoon encasing you for health and wellness benefits. Wraps improve the appearance and feel of your skin and help you reduce your weight. Most of these wraps start with exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, while the wrap itself contains nourishing oils to detoxify your body.

The wrap treatment you choose determines its results. Some provide detoxification. Others focus on hydration and skin nourishment. Still, others promote weight loss or improve the appearance of cellulite.

After exfoliation and rinsing the salt scrub from your body, a spa therapist applies the wrap treatment to your skin. After the treatment is applied, they wrap you in a clear plastic film. For about half an hour to 90 minutes, you lie back on a massage table and let the wrap do its work, in combination with your body heat. When the plastic is removed, you rinse your skin again and receive a moisturizing treatment.

How does a wrap treatment help you after a baby?

Weight loss is never easy. Wrap treatments help with this difficult process by providing essential nutrients and minerals through your skin. This aids in both temporary weight loss and long-term weight management.

Reduce Water Weight

The tight wrapping and nutrient absorption of your wrap treatment helps your body release excess water. Most of this comes out through sweat. At the same time, the wrapping tightens your skin.

Because water weight changes how your body looks, having a wrap treatment can make you appear smaller. This benefit happens by releasing the water weight and helping you reduce your size by a few extra inches.

Contour Your Body

A body wrap is highly effective in tightening your skin. The type of wrap you choose can vary in these results, based on how they target specific areas of your body. For post-baby weight, talk to your day spa about their wraps and which will help you reduce the size of your belly area, thighs and other parts of your body changed through pregnancy.

Reduce Cellulite

Cellulite proves difficult to treat. But having a wrap treatment can help you improve the appearance of cellulite on your abdomen, legs, hips, thighs, and buttocks. These benefits occur because the wrap improves blood circulation and clears away toxins. You can enjoy a noticeable reduction in the orange-peel appearance of cellulite on your body.

Detoxify Your Body

Body detoxification naturally occurs as part of a wrap treatment. This happens as the body absorbs key nutrients that help it flush toxins out of your system. With your wrap, your body performs better in its natural cycle of taking nutrients in and pushing toxins out.
