Have Questions About Our Body Contouring & Wraps Services in San Antonio, TX

Why Wrapped in Wellness?

We hear and see ads all the time that tell us to eat cereal twice a day for two weeks and lose 6 inches, IF you exercise & follow their program. We also hear the fitness infomercials that profess if you work out 2-4 weeks with their costly machines or videos AND follow a healthy diet, you could possibly lose up to 6 inches.

Wrapped in Wellness guarantees a minimum loss of 6 inches in one session or your next wrap is FREE. But we don’t stop there. Our program has been redesigned to not just detoxify and provide you with the 6-30 inches you lose in 1 visit, but to help our clients to achieve their individual inch & weight loss goals.

What is the Wrapped in Wellness “Total Body Program”?

  • Internal and external inch loss detoxification body wraps and services to aid in inch loss.
  • Body wraps and infrared treatments to promote inch loss & weight loss.
  • Sudatonic Body Wraps and Formostar Infrared Body Wraps are alternated to facilitate weight loss and to increase metabolism between inch loss body wrap treatments.
  • 3-Day Detox: lose 3-10 pounds, detox your body, and increase your metabolism.
  • Facial and Body Contouring: non-surgical body contouring to retrain the muscles in the face and the body.

How do body wraps work?

The body has three layers of fat. Over time, toxins accumulate and life shapes our bodies.

Accumulation of the above toxins in the body causes poor circulation and water retention, and the body's natural elimination process becomes weakened. As toxins accumulate between the fat cells, the skin begins to take on the orange peel effect of cellulite as the fat cells expand to accommodate trapped toxins (demonstrated on the right side of the body fat diagram provided).

Our body wraps use an all-natural mineral detoxifying solution which is absorbed into the body, extracting toxins from between the fat cells and restoring much-needed nutrients and minerals to the body. As toxins are removed, empty pockets are formed and the compression of our advanced wrapping technique creates inch loss and nourishes, tightens, and tones the skin.

What should I do after the wrap?

The body wrap process is still working in your body for 5-7 days after your body wrap and provides your body the ability to continue inch loss and tissue reduction. For continued results, we suggest the following:

  • Wear contouring clothes like a firm body shaper.
  • Avoid toxic foods such as salt, sugar, alcohol, caffeine and carbonated beverages for several days following the wrap.
  • Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day.
  • Avoid creams or lotions on your areas of concern and take lukewarm showers during this time period.
  • Dry brush with cellulite cream to increase circulation and decrease the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks.

How long does a body wrap take?
Your first body wrap session will take approximately 2 hours. The initial pre-consultation, measuring, and wrapping will take approximately 30 minutes. An additional 60 minutes are spent wrapped in the massage chairs listening to music or watching a movie. After being unwrapped, a second measurement and dressing take approximately 15 minutes, followed by a post-consultation where we give you the results from your first session. For our members and program holders, the body wrap should take approximately 1½ hours.

How often can I get a body wrap?
The body wrap is a safe and effective process that may be done as often as you wish. For inch loss results, we have found that a series of 6 to 12 wraps, performed at least 5-7 days apart, gives most clients the full benefit of the process. If you are losing weight, a continuing series of treatments will show results and help tighten the skin to your new shape. For maintenance, we recommend coming in every 6-8 weeks to maintain your results and to keep the skin soft and supple.

How many inches will I lose?
Depending upon body type (the proportion of soft tissue to muscle mass), most clients average a 10-inch loss on their first wrap, and plus or minus 2 inches on the second and third wraps. 

Does it involve dieting?
No dieting or exercise is required for inch loss.

How long does it last?
As long as you maintain your weight (or lose weight), we guarantee the lost inches will stay off for at least 2-3 months. Bear in mind that, in everyday life, we continue to take in toxins through chemicals and preservatives absorbed daily through the air we breathe, the foods and drinks we consume, and the products we use on our bodies. As previously noted, the solution is removing toxins, so introducing toxic substances back into your body could reverse the effects.

During your post-consultations, we give instructions to help maintain and lose additional inches. We recommend reducing the amount of toxins by avoiding salt, sugar, fried foods, alcohol, caffeine and other highly-toxic foods. Our 3-Day Detox will also be available to continue the elimination of toxins, jumpstart the weight loss process, and retrain your body. Regular exercise will also delay the re-toxification process and prolong your inch-loss results.

What should I wear to be wrapped?
In order to maximize the coverage of a contour wrap, we suggest that women be wrapped in cotton undergarments, and men are required to wear gym shorts or swim trunks. You will be wrapped in warm, damp bandages, so bring an extra set of dry undergarments for after the wrap.

Does the WIW wrap involve exercise?
Our system will reduce inches without exercise, but the benefits of any level of exercise will increase your results. Just sit back in a massage chair and let the solution and our wrapping technique do all the work for you.

Is this just a temporary water loss?
Absolutely not! The Wrapped In Wellness contour wrap is a firming and toning process that produces results by detoxifying and contouring the flesh; therefore, you will lose inches, not pounds. We recommend drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water a day, especially on the days following each wrap to continue the detoxification process through the body's natural elimination system. Flushing your system this way will ultimately aid weight loss.

If I want to change my body size quickly, do you offer packages?
We do offer a number of different packages and memberships to fit any budget. Talk with your wrap technician or inquire at the salon.

Will wraps help lap band/gastric bypass patients tighten and tone excess and loose skin?
Body Wraps are the perfect partner for gastric bypass or lap band patients who are losing weight drastically. Losing weight causes a breakdown of fat, releasing more toxins within the soft tissues, frequently resulting in loose, flabby-looking flesh. The detoxifying and sculpturing wrap will firm and tighten the flesh, showing the full benefits of your weight loss.
