Wrap these bandages around your naked body. Keep in mind that you should move these bandages in a circular motion. Use metal clips to secure the bandages. The bandages should be tied well to ensure they don’t move out of the place. Do not tie them so tightly that they cause you pain. If you find it difficult to wrap the bandages on your own, ask a friend or family for assistance.

Step 5:

Leave the wrap on your body for 45 to 60 minutes. In the period, it is advised you stay warm. You may perform some sort of exercise. Or you may also use a thermal foil blanket to keep yourself warm.

There are a few points you should keep in your mind before you start the wrapping process. One of them is to avoid the consumption of unhealthy food. Do not consume caffeine, alcohol and cigarettes 48 hours before the wrapping procedure. Also, drink plenty of water before the wrapping session. Even after you are done with the wrapping job, do drink water. It helps to clear your body off toxins.

Body wrap is gaining momentum across the world as a quick weight loss technique. However, it is wise to consult a doctor to be fully assured if the wrap suits your body condition or not.
