A body treatment cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates the skin on your
body just as a facial rejuvenates the skin on the face. As you lay on
your stomach, the massage therapist rubs a mixture of sugar, oil, and
aromatics like lemon into your skin. After washing, this exfoliates the
skin and leaves it feeling velvety soft, leaving a nice coating of oil
and enhancing the experience of a massage if you are having both.
A body wrap often takes place after a scrub. After your scrub is
complete, a seaweed wrap is applied; which is a "detoxifying" treatment
that stimulates your metabolic system, speeding its ability to carry
away waste products.
