If you have ever wanted to explore a new way to heal, live and be well, visiting Head To Toe Health & Wellness is a great place to start! They specialize in mineral body wraps and share that their goal is “to spread wellness, create awareness and inspire awakening. We define health awakening as to explore new ways to heal, think, live and be well. At Head To Toe, we will continue to deliver information, services and modalities to help you live a healthier and happier life.” In terms of a philosophy, they “believe that healing and health maintenance is a multifaceted approach. There is not a quick fix, one-size-fits-all approach to healing that our culture has led us to believe. The foods we eat, the self care we prioritize, the thoughts we think and our body movement result in the state of our well being.”
They go on to share, “We believe you need to put your health into your own hands. Nobody is going to know your body, have your best interests in mind or advocate for you more than YOU! As the information age has evolved, so must our health care. We have come to rely on Western Medicine to fix us when we are broken, but we have forgotten how to stay whole in the first place. We see more and more people seeking out natural resources to bring themselves back to optimal health.”
Their promise is that their services will “assist your body to detoxify, release, relax and restore in a healing and safe environment.” They “believe in community and collaboration and realize that the services we provide are just one piece of the puzzle. Our goal is to provide resources, educational opportunities and introductions to other practitioners and modalities so that our clients can find their own individual recipe for what makes them whole.”
They go on to share that you will see improvement from the receiving of absorbable minerals through the skin during a body wrap. This is possible because minerals are necessary to carry out every function of the body, especially detoxification and energy production so these minerals are incredibly capable of stimulating the body to detoxify. Minerals and turmeric will soften, tighten and tone the skin while promoting healing in problematic areas. Benefits of compression therapy in mineral body wraps are also a part of the process. Lactic acid and lymphatic flushing which removes toxins also happen during the process. The process also reduces inflammation and water retention as well as improves circulation and oxygenation of the body. It also helps with accelerated workout recovery, helps prevent and eliminate first-stage varicose veins, lifts and tightens and can be used to strategically address problem areas.
How Mineral Body Wraps Work
The mineral wrap involves an overall application of water and minerals with special porous bandages soaked in a warm mineral solution applied to your body. You can choose from different wrapping techniques to enhance results in problem areas: The wrap can be applied to the entire body or just to any troublesome areas such as the thighs or the abdomen. Once the soaked bandages are in place, you’ll have the opportunity to exercise lightly in order to increase your circulation and enhance the effectiveness of the treatment. In some wraps, your whole body is wrapped in layers, like a cocoon, rather than wrapping different parts with layers of bandages.
The entire process, from preparation to unwrapping, can take up to about ninety minutes, although the actual time spent in the wrap is usually just about an hour. We advise not washing the minerals off your body for a while so that they can continue to work, but this might not be the best course of action for your skin. If you were measured before you went into the wrap, you’ll be measured again after the wraps are removed and given your total inch loss.
Preparation for detox body wraps
- Plan on 90 minutes for your first wrap.
- The entire body will be wrapped from head to toe so your hair will get a little wet. Shower caps are available if desired.
- Have dry undergarments to wear afterwards.
- Do not wear body lotion or oil the day of the wrap. Exfoliating or dry brushing is recommended before, but not necessary.
- Drink water so you are not dehydrated. However, please be aware that you will not be able to use the restroom for 60 minutes once you are in the wrap.
- Women wear underwear and can choose to wear a bra. If wearing a bra, a comfortable, cotton sports bra is recommended.
- Men wear swim trunks.
- Make sure to drink plenty of water for the next couple days to continue to flush toxins out of your system.
- Most people feel very relaxed and refreshed after a wrap, but few experience mild detox symptoms. If this is the case, drink extra water and allow your body to rest.
Of course we need medical doctors, chiropractic doctors and naturopathic doctors for our serious and complicated health needs. However, we encourage everyone to become more involved in their own health journey so that YOU can feel confident and empowered when facing challenges and decisions concerning your most precious possession; your body.
Your body is designed to heal itself when you trust, allow and support it to do so. It is time to take ownership of your health journey and truly realize that your body is not only capable of miraculous healing, but of truly thriving. Investing in yourself is more important then ever as our families, our communities and our world needs YOUR light.
