I took two of my co-workers for a session. We were wrapped like mummies, a mineral solution is applied to our bandages that bind us tightly. I was put under a thermal blanket with a clay and aloe mixture applied to my trouble spots. Kristen Sell and Amanda Warford, my brave and hopeful friends were wrapped and watered down with the detox solution as well, but with their treatments—they had to stay active for up to an hour. They jogged in place, pounced on a trampoline, and even shimmed on a vibrating machine..
When the bandages were removed we each shrunk about 7-inches total body.
Daniels say her business is popular right now with a new clientèle. Military women *and men who need to drop a little before a fitness test.
