Calistoga Body Wraps

Believe it or not, body wraps actually derive their name from an old weight-loss treatment, whereby Ace bandages or rolls of plastic wrap were wound tightly across the body to induce vasodilatation. Fortunately, though, the modern art of administering body wraps has replaced plastic and latex with a gentle mask of rich, rejuvenating, natural ingredients. These ‘masks’, which may combine ingredients like algae, seaweed, mud, clay, lotion, or cream, are usually applied directly to the body, then covered with a wrap while the body absorbs the organic nutrients.
