What can I expect from a body wrap?

If you are a little uncertain about what will happen during your body wrap treatment, below is a step-by-step breakdown of what you can expect.

Remove your clothes

You will need to strip down to your underwear or a bikini. If only your lower half is undergoing a wrap, you can wear something comfortable on top.


This step is not included in all body wraps. You can check when you make a booking if it is included in the wrap you want. If your wrap does include exfoliation, your beauty therapist will remove dead skin cells with a gentle scrub.


If your body wrap treatment does not include exfoliation, it will not be necessary for you to undergo a rinse at this point.

Application of formula and wrapping

Your beauty therapist will begin applying your specifically chosen formula to your body. Depending on which wrap you have chosen, you will then either be wrapped in cloth or plastic film.

She will apply the formula to your body section by section, wrapping each section before moving on to the next. Once you have been fully wrapped, heated towels may additionally be placed over you to aid the absorption process.


Now it’s time for you to relax. You’ll be left alone for up to half an hour while you wait for the treatment to fully absorb and do its work. If you’d like, your beauty therapist could use this time to give you an invigorating Indian head massage. Make sure you include this in your booking when you make it.

Unwrapping and rinse

Once the prescribed time has passed, your beauty therapist will begin unwrapping you. She will either rinse you off using the Vichy shower, or direct you to a shower where you can do this yourself.

Unless instructed, make sure you don’t use a shower gel or any other cleansing product when rinsing as it may remove all the oils and minerals absorbed during your wrap.


Once you have rinsed off and are dry, your beauty therapist will apply a moisturiser or body oil to your skin in order to protect and soften it. This will also leave you feeling even more refreshed and glowing.
