What is The Universal Contour Wrap
Back to top
The original Universal Contour Wrap™ is a superb, natural
therapy, developed in America by Doctor Richard Strem, based on extensive
research into the beneficial minerals used in traditional spa remedies from many
parts of the world.
The Universal Contour Wrap™ exfoliates and cleanses your skin,
detoxifies your body, tightens loose tissue and gives you exceptional and
lasting inch loss. It is excellent for reducing the appearance of cellulite and

average client will lose between 10- and 14" on their first wrap -
many obtain even better results. A course of three wraps is
recommended for maximum benefit. The wraps should be taken no less
than seven to ten days apart, and clients can lose in excess of 25"
over the course. The Universal Contour Wrap™ produces an overall
sensation of well-being. There is no need to shower, as the clay
leaves the skin feeling pleasantly smooth - and the effect of the wrap
is enhanced if the solution is not washed off right away. The whole
treatment is completed in less than two hours.

Why take a course ?
Back to top
course of wraps is often recommended; these should be taken 7-10 days apart.
Inch loss is accumulative and most clients can lose around 25" over three wraps
(depending on their size!) It is quite normal for a client to come down a
complete dress size, without losing a pound in weight, over three wraps. Clients
dieting would have even better results.
Larger clients or even clients that are rather 'solid' in certain areas
(normally thighs and buttocks), would definitely benefit from a course of wraps
as this area needs 'breaking down' and it is impossible to get maximum results
in only one treatment.
Because the inches lost do not return after a few glasses of water (or cups of
tea!) it is obvious that we can only wrap someone a limited number of times
before they are, what we call, 'wrapped out'. Wrapped out means the point at
which we have accumulated the maximum inch loss.
really depends on the size of the client and their lifestyle as to how many
wraps they may have before being wrapped out. In order to achieve further inch
loss, the client would have to diet. However, further wraps will certainly
continue to benefit the skin by deep cleansing, contouring and tightening the
soft fatty tissue and are also excellent for detoxification on a regular basis.
clients also experience a sense of well-being. In order to maintain your shape
and inch loss we recommend having a wrap once every two months.

maximum results, we would advise that you try and follow these after wrap
Because of the amount of inch loss that has occurred through the tissue
compacting and tightening, it will take a week or so for your skin to adapt to
this amount of tissue inch loss.
Although your treatment in the salon has been completed, the clay solution is
still in your skin and the detoxification and tightening process can continue
for 3-4 days giving further inch loss.
You can greatly
assist this skin tightening process by retaining the solution in the pores,
showering with tepid water only. Limit the soap to under arm, groin and feet
areas only, you do not want to soap the solution out of the pores.
lotions that could be absorbed into the pores and inhibit the desired action of
the retained solution should also be avoided.
wrap is great for dry skin - you should not need lotions for a few days.
Following this procedure for the next 3-4 days will greatly assist the total
result, and this will continue to improve for the next week or two.
After 3-4 days hot showers and plenty of soap on the entire body will open the
pores and eliminate the solution and toxins on which it has continued to act.
There will NOT be any body odour problems for 3-4 days of clay solution
Eating & Drinking
Back to top
After your wrap you should drink plenty of water, either mineral or tap water is
fine - but NOT carbonated mineral water. Ideally try and drink at least 3 pints
a day. This helps flush out and rid your body of the impurities that have broken
down. If you can avoid things that are fairly toxic for a
3-4 day period, this will help greatly, they are:
you drink a lot of tea or coffee and you cut this out completely you may
experience headaches, we would normally advise clients that have a high caffeine
intake to cut down rather than cut out. For example, if you normally drink from
a mug, have a cup instead.
most important instruction to follow is - to drink plenty of water. In order to
maintain your shape and inch loss we recommend having a wrap once every two

Q So, how many inches can I expect to lose ?
Carole says: "Obviously the number of inches lost varies from
person to person - and it's not always dependent on how many inches you
have to lose. You don't have to be over-weight to notice a difference
and feel generally better.
"A reported loss of a massive 38 inches on a first wrap was the
most successful, but you are guaranteed a loss of at least six inches
and the average is around 10 inches. "Clients taking a course of
three wraps can expect an accumulative inch loss. We advise that
treatments are taken 7-10 days apart and the average overall inch loss
is normally around 25 inches. Female clients having a course of wraps
usually go down a complete dress size without losing a pound in
Q Will I put the inches back on as soon as I have a
Carole says: "No, definitely not. That was the story with the old
type of body wrap products, which depended on inducing rapid water-loss
or on the use of vigorous exercise. Clients who are treated with the
Universal Contour Wrap™ are actively encouraged to drink water, both
after treatment and in the weeks following. In fact, cutting down on
substances which create toxins and drinking plenty of water can often
increase inch-loss in the days following treatment."
Q So I won't actually lose weight having a Contour
Carole says: "As it is toxins rather than fat that are being
removed, any actual weight loss will be minimal. The Universal Contour
Wrap™ is an inch loss rather than a weight loss treatment - you will
see the change in your post-Wrap shape and feel it in your
Q How long do the results last ?
Carole says: "We guarantee that the results will last for at least
30 days, although they can last for up to a year depending on lifestyle
and diet. A reduction in coffee, tea, alcohol and processed foods,
drinking plenty of water and taking regular exercise all help in keeping
down the level of toxins in the body."
Q Does the Universal Contour Wrap improve the
appearance of cellulite ?
Carole says: "Yes it does - the appearance of cellulite is improved
by the removal of toxins from between the fat cells and the stimulation
of the lymphatic system brought about by the Contour Wrap and by the
skin tightening effect which reduces visible dimpling."
Q Can I have a Universal Contour Wrap if I have
recently had a baby ?
Carole says: "Yes, you can, provided you wait at least six weeks
after a normal delivery and take your Doctor's advice after a Caesarean.
This treatment is excellent for firming up the abdominal and bust areas
and softening stretch marks. "If you are breast-feeding, you may
prefer to have a partial Contour Wrap finishing under the bust-line or
express your milk beforehand as the warm bandages will encourage the
milk-flow. It is not safe to have a Contour Wrap while you are still
Q I suffer badly from eczema. Will the Contour Wrap
irritate my skin ?
Carole says: "Far from irritating your skin, many sufferers of skin
conditions such as eczema and psoriasis actually notice the beneficial
effects. And it has even helped ease the pain suffered by those with
arthritis or rheumatism. A purely natural product, the sea clay used
contains minerals from the Dead Sea which has been known for its
therapeutic qualities for centuries."
Q Is there anybody who should definitely not have a
Universal Contour Wrap ?
Carole says: "The Universal Contour Wrap is suitable for almost
everybody but we will ask you to fill in a detailed health questionnaire
before you have the treatment just to be completely sure that it is
suitable for you."
