As woman, most of us have them, whether we are a size zero super model or have a more realistic curvier body shape – cellulite and stretch marks take no prisoners. Whilst not harmful to the health, aesthetically they can be one of the biggest barriers to self-confidence amongst woman.
To treat cellulite it is necessary to stimulate the area in order to reduce the volume of fat that has become stored and to kick start the blood flow and circulation which has become sluggish. there are no miracle cures but a less sedentary lifestyle, combined with professional and home treatments will see a marked improvement in the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite.

The Harley Body Wrap is a relaxing way to lose inches and refine the figure.
The body is wrapped in cotton bandages soaked in Aloe Vera formula, which are then gently warmed. The Aloe Vera with added vitamins and collagen, and no natural or added salts, deeply hydrates and softens the skin.
The warmth of the wrap opens the pores allowing the solution to penetrate into the dermal layer.
The formula helps to dislodge toxic build up trapped in fat-prone areas, which is then flushed out into the lymph system.
Once these tissues have broken down they are flushed out through the body’s natural waste system, so the body is highly detoxified and cleansed.
As well as providing instant inch loss, Harley Body Wrap improves skin hydration, tonicity and softness and as a result of the detoxifying effect, energy levels are boosted.
The treatment is suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive. £55
