Toxic agents are all around us – in the food we eat, the air we breathe, the cookware we use and even in the household cleaners we spray. While these are tangible toxic agents, some intangible elements like stress hormones, anxiety and negative emotions also create free radicals in our body. The free radicals lead to the loss of nutrients from our body and weaken the immune system.
Our body undergoes detoxification through natural processes such as crying, sweating, urination and defecation. But, today’s lifestyle promotes toxin build up to such an extent that we need to rely on external help to detoxify our body.
How Does Detox Therapy Work?
Detox therapies focus on removing environmental and dietary toxins from the body, helping you stay healthier. While a frequent body detox is beneficial for one’s health, you need to go for it without a second thought, if you experience the following symptoms:
- Sluggish elimination
- Irritated skin
- Puffy eyes
- Menstrual irregularities
Body Wrap: A Spa Therapy for Detoxification
Body wrap is a type of detoxification therapy, wherein the skin is first polished using natural ingredients such as salt or sugar granules in aromatic oil, followed by the application of mud or clay mask. The next step involves wrapping the body with a sheet that forms a thermal blanket. A body wrap helps in eliminating toxins through metabolic stimulation. The thermal blanket promotes sweating and helps in the emptying of unnecessary fluid, located between the small spaces of body tissues. A body wrap also helps in tightening the skin, treats the unpleasant appearance of cellulite and gives a boost to the lymphatic system and metabolism. Hence, a body wrap is essential to not only remove toxins from the body, but to give a healthy glow to the skin.
