I’ve never been one for massages, but I had some gift cards that I’d been given at our engagement party for Spaweek.com which can be used at many salons and spas across the country.
I did some research and I came across a local spa close to me which seemed to have awesome massages and body wraps. I went with the dexotifying body wrap which was awesome. I haven’t been one for being pampered before this – but this was truly awesome — an overall wonderful experience 🙂

@classical_wolf: Tell me more about this. Is whatever it is (seaweed I assume) wrapped tightly around you? Can you move? I think I would honestly freak the hell out, lol.

@Jen51287: It was 🙂
@MrsPanda99: Sure thing — I first lotion (all over my body) and then an exfoliating treatment (all over my back, back of legs, etc, and then I turned over onto my front. Then they basically put a mud mask (or so) all over my body (back and front), and then put a lot of warm towels over me and made me all cozy. Once I was all cozy for about 20 minutes, they had me rinse off the “mud”, and then they lathered me with lotion and good smelling spray stuff. The whole thing took about a little over an hour.
You can definitely move. I was wrapped a little more loose than “snug”, to keep the heat in, but I had no problem shifting around, etc.
There wasn’t seaweed — the wrap was described as this: “Body exfoliation,steam, followed by a lemon,juniper,geranium & lavander essential oils body wrap.“
They had another wrap which was probably what you’re thinking of — which was called a “seaweed and aloe treatment” — “Body exfoliation,steam, followed by a seaweed & aloe mud treatment,finished with a seaweed and aloe treatment cream.“
As someone who isn’t (generally) a fan of being pampered, I loved the wrap 🙂
