A Lipolysis wrap works by Lecithin from soya beans being applied to the skin in a massage medium. The body is then wrapped and kept warm allowing the lecithin to break down the fat within the fat cells. These are then removed from the body over the course of 3 days and inches are lost. The course covers body wrapping, application of a product prior to wrapping, the action of lipolysis, and correct measuring. It is very much a practical based course.
