Types of Scrubs and Wraps
Salt has a higher nutritional content including potassium, calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and zinc. It is also drying to the skin, whereas sugar is more of a humectant, meaning it imparts moisture.
Salt has larger granules, which makes it more abrasive than sugar; salt also does not break down as readily as sugar. Organic cane sugar contains calcium and magnesium and is high in glycolic acid, a type of alpha hydroxy acid that encourages the regeneration of skin cells.
Typically, an exfoliation is performed immediately prior to a wrap to allow for better absorption of whatever product is to be applied. Depending on the desired effect, wraps can utilize a range of products including mud, sugar or salt scrubs, algae and shea butter.
Full-body wraps can be classified as detoxifying or hydrating. In each case, heat is used to encourage perspiration and speed the elimination of metabolic waste as well as the absorption of product.
The heat used is produced from the client’s own body heat and is aided by a table warmer and the cocooning nature of the wrap.
Hydrating Wraps 90 Minutes (scrub + wrap) $120
Wraps can leave the skin feeling incredibly hydrated, especially when coupled with an exfoliating treatment. After the exfoliation, we can use a thicker, more hydrating product like shea butter prior to wrapping the client. As the client’s body temperature rises within the wrap, the product melts and is more readily absorbed.
Combination or custom massage sessions may incorporate a variety of modalities or techniques such as Swedish massage, deep tissue, trigger point therapy, reflexology, myofascial release, stretching, and range of motion to arrive at a treatment that is totally individualized to each client.
