Any feedback would be appreciated!!!
What Is The SlenderQuest® Body Wrap System?
It is an advanced inch loss program, which uses natural ingredients to draw out toxins and
tighten skin. The body is first misted with our special amino herbal formula, covered with
therapeutic sea clay and then wrapped firmly with medical elastic bandages. It is a firming and
How Does It Work?
Herbal extracts, amino nutrients and natural sea clay open pores and draw out toxic
accumulations from the skin and soft tissue layers. Pressure wraps compact the detoxified fatty
tissues, reducing overall measurements in the areas that need it most.
How Long Does It Last?
As long as you maintain your weight (or lose some), we guarantee that the lost inches will not
return for at least 30 days. With the detoxification of the tissue these inches will gradually return
over the next 6 to 12 months, depending wholly on your diet. Avoiding salt, sugar, fried foods,
alcohol, caffeine and other toxin-laden foods will substantially retard the detoxifying process.
Does It Involve Dieting?
No dieting is required for Inch-loss, but a SlenderQuest Body Wrap program is the perfect partner
for a diet. Losing weight causes the breakdown of fat, releasing more toxins in the soft tissues,
frequently resulting in loose, â€œflabby" looking flesh. The detoxifying and sculpturing wrap will firm
and tighten this flesh to show the full benefits of your weight loss.
Does It Involve Exercise?
The SlenderQuest Body Wrap System will reduce Inches with or without exercise, but the
resistance of the wraps will increase the benefits of any level of movement undertaken while
wrapped. We recommend doing as much as you are comfortable with.
How Many Inches Will I Lose?

I did not like it too much - I did not like the feeling of being wrapped in plastic film and not being able to move at all for an hour. The woman put a little trigger in my hand saying : if something's wrong, press and we'll come ! Well, nothing went really wrong but I did not feel relaxed or better from the process.
But, that's just me ! Maybe some other girls will have had better experiences

Are bodywraps just another weight loss gimmick or can bodywraps help you achieve weight loss and fitness goals?
The answer to that question depends a lot on you.
Assuming you've chosen body wraps that work by carefully evaluating the choices with the criteria I will be giving you, you need to look at your expectations.
Are you assuming that all you need is a good bodywrap to get results? Bodywraps can provide benefits but are you believing a stand-alone weight loss tool?
The answer is a resounding "no".
Even the very best body wrap works best when it is just one aspect of a total weight loss program involving exercise and diet. If you go into this idea of wrapping for weight loss thinking that it's a quick fix, I can tell you that you will be setting yourself up for disappointment.
Instead of asking yourself do body wraps really work, why not start with a more important question: am I willing to work to achieve my weight loss goals?
In this 7-part weight loss and fitness article, we will explore the most popular types of wraps as well as other important factors to look at in making your decision, assuming you've already answered the question above with a resounding yes, I'm willing to work
The Basic Three in Wrapping:
3 popular types of body wraps are mineral wraps, herbal body wraps and detoxing clay wraps. Of these 3, I personally favor detoxifying clays (Choose herbal-wraps that add only organic herbs and use the purest detoxing clays.
A note about aluminum:
Ask about aluminum content in the clays being used. This is an important consideration for me because of the studies I've read about linking excess aluminum and health challenges such as Alzheimer's. Some clays have a lot of aluminum while others do not. Ask.
However, as long as the ingredients are pure and quality ingredients, any one of these three main types, as well as the newer options such as infrared heat and lipase wraps, can provide benefits. Please read on about what is realistic to expect and what is just not realistic to expect. Regardless of type of treatment you choose, the strongest tips I can share are:
•Scrutinize body-wrap ingredients: Some of what goes on you will also go in you, through your pores, so look for organic ingredients
•Ask questions about safety: What do the wrap-technicians say about dehydration, preparing before the wrap, what to expect after the wrap and any unusual symptoms that might indicate a problem while doing the wrap?
•Ask questions about allergic reactions: Do not assume that there are no cautions. Wrap-technicians will tend to be busy and could forget to mention something so always ask about allergic reactions.
Specifically mention any ingredient you are aware of that might cause a reaction if applied topically. Do this whether or not you see your allergic ingredient listed.
Your allergen might be there and just be part of a "mixture" that is added as one ingredient, similar to the way manufacturers often include monosodium glutamate in with "vegetable broth" in tuna.
Discuss any and all medications you are taking and any medical condition you have: In particular, let your wrap-technician know if you have diabetes, heart disease or circulatory problems.
Visit the spa's website before an in-person visit: Evaluating your options may be easier if the spa has a website because, though you'd still be hit with marketing as soon as you go there, you wouldn't be getting the hard sell that an in-person techician can impose. Visit the website and write down a list of questions to ask the wrap technician when you call or visit. Ask about any package deals, promotions, etc.
A spa offering any type of weight loss tool should also be able to provide "realistic" results. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Look for testimonials from people who have kept the weight off for at least six months. It's one thing to lose 19 inches in an hour. It's another thing to still have that 19 inches gone after half a year has passed.
It is my hope that you use body-wraps and any other tools for weight loss in addition to healthy living and not instead of making positive changes that would support a better weight for you. Any weight loss too really works best within a well-rounded program including diet and fitness, as well as motivation coaching and counseling for emotional issues surrounding persistent weight gain.

I believe people relate them to weight loss because of the inches lost. When you are loosing weight wraps are good to do to keep the the skin from being saggy. But the DIY kit I have at home strongly encourage doing some light exercise while detoxing.
I did notice the spa wraps work better for me when detoxing. I think that is because they can wrap the body just right. When you try to wrap yourself its either too tight or too loose and you don't really get the best results. So if you do the DIY make sure you have someone to help you wrap.

I really wanted to do them. I ran out of time and money.But Im thinking about doing them now.
And these arent like a typical wrap, they are more like individuals wraps that are full of detoxifying all natural ingredients. You dont have to go to a salon. They come to you! You should look into these!!!
