BODY WRAP SUPPLIES
Below are some links and suggestions for body wrap supplies needed when performing body wraps.
Appointment/Scheduling Book: Sally Beauty Supply.
Bandages: High quality 6 inch wide by 6 feet long (white).$4.75 each plus shipping (minimum 10) or Case of 108 $425 (plus shipping) .
Basting Bottles: at the Webstaurant Store
Bath and Hand Towels: Sam’s Club sells them in bulk and has them in white, which can be easily bleached.
Disposable Gloves and Shower Caps: Sally Beauty Supply
Disposable Bra and Panties: If you want to keep some around “just in case” you get a walk in or a client forgets theirs, you can find them at www.universalcompanies.com under “disposables.”
DRY BODY BRUSH: This is not necessary for body wrap, but is a nice add on if you choose and also a good resale.
The dry brush I prefer is the “strap” version, BUT I suggest you may want to order one of each to see which you prefer to use on your clients and also on yourself.
Strap Dry Brush http://www.massagewarehouse.
This is a brush with naturally soft boar bristles and side hand strap. It is perfect for exfoliating treatments or personal use. It fits the hand and does not have a handle. The brush measures 5″ x 2.5″. This is the least expensive place I found for these! DRY BRUSH
The practice of dry brushing helps sweep away dead skin cells, stimulate circulation, eliminate toxins, reduce ingrown hairs and the appearance of cellulite and leaves the skin glowing. Proper dry brushing techniques start in small circles at the feet and work up to the neck and are followed by a shower or bath to wash away impurities released by the process. This healthful treatment is a favorite at spas and is routinely followed by herbal wraps or mud treatments for an even greater benefit.
You can also order the equipment mats from here to place under the equipment and for the client to stand on to be wrapped and/or basted to catch any dripping.
Mat for under Gazelle, Rebounder and any place you need to protect your floor (i.e. wrapping area, basting area, unwrapping area)
There are two mats available.
HAND / FOOT BAGS

HYDROGEN PEROXIDE: Sam’s Club
For a higher quality infrared blanket; search for PH-2BIII. At this time the least expensive is offered from www.microwaterman.com
Ponchos: You can buy ponchos from Walmart or Target or really anywhere that sells camping gear.
Having to clean and/or disinfect the ponchos in between clients can be a hassle for some people and they have switched to purchasing the ponchos from the following link. They can be washed and disinfected, but most body wrap business owners prefer to send their client home with this poncho. It will add about $.60 to the cost of the wrap, but might be something to think about in the long run. DISPOSABLE PONCHO
If you prefer a disposable poncho you may be interested in using these. PLEASE RECYCLE or you may give it to your client after their wrap to keep in their car trunk for any “rainy day.”
RAIN SUIT – (instead of Sauna Suit): I find these are easier to put on and take off client, since they will not have to raise their arms or pull on over their heads. I usually keep three of these on hand (1 M/L and 2 L/XL) for my clients that get extremely cold in the wrap. Using these takes a bit longer to re-mineralize or baste your client, but work very well.
Sauna Suit or Rain Gear – These are great to use to keep your client warm “NOT SWEATING”… I prefer to use the Rain Jacket w/Pants so that the client doesn’t have to lift their arms. Either is ok, just remember that if the client lifts arms, the bandages may roll in the underarms…so pay close attention.
Robes: WAFFLE ROBES
The reason we like these the best is that they wash and dry quickly, they are white (so they can be bleached if need be), they are long and will fit even your larger clients.
Another nice slipper (one that I prefer) that I have used in my spas/salons is a rubber base that you spray with disinfectant, dunk in water and then put over a rubber or plastic shoe rack to drip dry. You can find those at www.universalcompanies.com . They do offer the famous Sensi slippers and if your budget allows then by all means, but they are about $16 per pair. But they do offer a slipper called “Yeah Baby Cloud 9” (TOTALLY perfect!) and are sort of like the Sensi slipper but without the massaging nubs in the sole and they are only about $6 per pair! And when you need an assortment of sizes, these really are an excellent choice.
