Body Wrap at Hotspot Wellness

It is the time of year to start fresh and try new things. According to Nielson, the top 2 New Year's Resolutions are "Stay fit and healthy" and "Lose Weight". One of the things about being a Coast Guard wife is sticking to the resolutions which can sometimes be hard having to move all the time. That stress doesn't help with keeping in shape and staying healthy. When we were in Astoria, Oregon I joined a great gym, called Hotspot Wellness, with some awesome instructors - Michelle and Liz. Both are licensed massage therapists as well as instructors in all forms of workouts.

Before I left there, I had the chance to experience a body wrap. They have 2 different wraps both at $90 but both equally amazing and worth the money. Check out the massage tab on the website for each wrap description and other services that are offered.

My body wrap was a mix of both and one of Liz's first test subjects :) She did awesome and had Michelle there teaching her along the way. I know by now she is a pro!


All of the products they use are from Mountain Rose, based in Eugene Oregon. Each wrap is based on the person and what therapy they are needing. The following steps are done to ensure proper detoxification and exfoliation.


Step 1: Dry brushing entire body (exfoliates the skins and opens the pores)
Step 2: Toner - Priming skins (products used - Calundula, green tea and essential oils mixed together)
Step 3: Clay is smoothed on to skin
Step 4: Body is wrapped with blankets to let clay soak in to skin
Step 5: Blankets are removed
Step 6: Body is wiped down with heated towels to remove all the clay
Step 7: Brush finishing oils on entire body  (Eucalyptus, geranium and grapefruit essential oils and coconut oil)

Be sure to check out Hotspot Wellness next time you are in Astoria, whether to get a massage/wrap or simply to get your workout on!
