It gives you one heck of a detox. Fact.
Brilliant. The first thing we learn about the body wrap is that it’s quite possibly the best hangover treatment ever. Not only are you laid flat on your back for a full hour; your toxic body will be cleansed of the sins of the night before. ‘The treatment starts with a full body exfoliation, followed by a light skin brush to get the lymphatic drainage system going,’ says Laura Kimber, head therapist at the highly acclaimed Bulgari spa. ‘This prepares you for the next step, the wrap, which aims to flush the toxins out of your blood stream.’ So far so good. ‘We then cover your body in a nutrient-rich detoxifying mud or an algae based mud to really cleanse and purify your system,’ explains Laura. The wrap itself is designed to boost the detoxification process and involves being tightly bound in a material that makes you sweat! Usually a foil, plastic or linen blanket.
