Here's the Skinny: Universal Contour Wrap at the Adriana Spa



Have a tiny little dress to fit into over the holidays? Have we got a solution for you: a fearless colleague recently tested the Universal Contour Wrap at the Adriana Spa (212 Main St, Tuckahoe 914-395-1555; adrianaspabeauty.com) which “guarantees” at least a six-inch “weight loss.”  Here’s her report.

“To all you skeptics out there: it works! So far, fifty-seven women who’ve been wrapped have had amazing results – including me! I lost twelve inches in the first go-round (ideally you should do three). The process – it is two hours out of your day—uses bandages that have been soaked in a warm sea clay solution straight out of the Dead Sea. You will feel like Cleopatra as you are expertly wrapped by therapist Ellie Sheik, first like a mummy, and then in what looks like an aluminum space suit as a way to keep your body warm – and warmed up. You will even do a few yoga-esque exercises as a way to stimulate the reshaping and toning. The wrap not only cleanses and detoxifies the system, leaving the skin extremely soft and smooth, but the entire technique compresses and compacts the soft fatty tissue making the body feel firmer and tighter. You are measured before and after, so everything is very precise.”

Here are the details of her amazing reduction:
