Slender Spa 2235 Tackett’s Mill Dr, Lake Ridge
Slender Spa is a different kind of spa, as the name implies. While you may feel better after a visit, you will definitely look better. That is because Slender Spa focuses on body wrap treatments that help customers shed unwanted inches around their midsection and other problem areas.
Loren Grimes, daughter of owner Anita Grimes, said that the body is like a sponge. Toxins cause it to expand and hold onto unnecessary, unhealthy elements. Body wraps expel these elements with minerals your body craves. The result is loss of inches.
Losing inches can help you feel better and look better, and in some cases it can even make a difference in your career. Military personnel frequently use body wraps to make fitness standards. Grimes said her mother will repeat treatments if necessary to get service men and women into the shape they need.
On average customers lose an accumulation of 12-20 inches from waist, arms, and legs. This can translates into fitting into those skinny jeans, looking better in a bathing suit, and feeling better about yourself, so you can go out and live a healthier life-style!
