Body wraps, mud wraps, mud packs…

Detox Volcanic WrapThese terms are commonly used in the spa and beauty industries and are treatments that you’re likely to find on any spa menu worth its weight in mud.
However, to the average consumer or spa goer, it is easy to get bamboozled by the concept of body or mud wraps, let alone fully understand why you would choose to have one and what benefit it offers you.
What are the benefits of a body wrap?
First of all, it is useful to outline what you are hoping to achieve from your treatment so you can make an educated choice as to which type of body wrap to go for.
Our skin is our largest organ of detoxification. Body wraps that use algae, seaweed, mud or clay are usually classified as detox treatments that help rid the body of toxins through metabolic stimulation. Body wraps using shea butter and rich lotions are hydrating treatments geared towards softening the skin. Both types of body wraps will assist in soothing tight or stressed muscles due to the use of heat, as well as providing a rare moment of time-out that most of us do not allow ourselves unless we are in the hands of a skilled therapist.

Scientific Background

LED produces multiple wavelengths of visible and invisible light delivered at low intensity. Because there is little or no heat generated from LED there is no risk of tissue damage.

LED technology was originally developed to enhance the growth of plant tissue in space by NASA. NASA’s space program also proved that LED light promotes wound healing and human tissue growth. It is for these reasons that LED therapy has become a significant and useful aesthetic procedure.

LED therapy is the application of sending a broad band of energy at a low intensity to the skin for therapeutic and anti-aging purposes. LED photo facial treatment is effective in generating a response within living tissue because it activates and stimulates the ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) within the body. ATP governs how cells use energy and when ATP use is enhance from LED exposure, it prompts affected cells to do what they do naturally, but at an accelerated rate.
