The Oasis Spa offers the perfect retreat for you to enjoy a treatment with the one you love. The Seaweed Body Nourish Wrap was inspired by the European tradition of Thalassotherapy- the medical use of seawater as a form of therapy.

A seaweed body wrap has many advantages that help the body to feel better and remove toxins. The entire process serves to relieve daily stress and to help the body feel new and improved. The treatment begins with exfoliation of the skin, and then fresh Repechage seaweed is layered over your body as you are wrapped in a warm cocoon of plastic. A warm blanket covers you to aid in the detoxification process that lasts anywhere between 20-25 minutes. While you sweat, toxins are eliminated from your body. Once the wrap is complete, the excess seaweed wrap mud is wiped off with warm cleansing cloths and followed by an invigorating and stimulating shower. Then a moisturizer is applied to lock in the smoothness that the seaweed gives to the skin and water is encouraged to replenish the body of electrolytes and aid in providing energy.

So, in case you are wondering what the benefits of body wraps are:

  • Seaweed body wraps contain sea salt, sea weed, amino acids and vitamins that are essential to good skin care and skin maintenance. Users may feel that their skin has tightened in areas and that fine lines or small wrinkles are diminished from a seaweed body wrap.
  • The heat aids in helping to redistribute fat deposits in the cells and many users find that the appearance of cellulite is also decreased.
  • People with dry skin can see results with weekly seaweed body wraps as the solution to the problem and even do target areas between full body wraps. The skin drinks in all the minerals, amino acids and vitamins to have a healthier glow and to retain moisture better.
  • Seaweed body wraps can reduce discomfort associated with aching bones, arthritis, joint pain or water retention. Please discuss with your healthcare professional.
