Waste of Money!!! I should have left as soon as I pulled up to the facility..given the outward appearance; I was not impressed. I decided to stay because they have a policy if you cancel your appointment without 24 hours notice they will still charge you for their services. So the way I saw it; I was already out $150. They already had my credit card information; as you have to provide this at the time of making your appointment.
The inside of the facility is lacking. I did not feel it was a clean environment or well taken care of place. It's very run-down.
Not a good first impression.
I was instructed to disrobe to my underwear and bra and go sit in the Sauna. I was in the Sauna for about 10-15 minutes. After the Sauna I was wrapped in Ace Wraps all over my body that were wet with "minerals" (literally from head to toe). They also put plastic bags on your hands and feet. The plastic bags collect the water etc that drains. They had me bounce on a trampoline or use the elliptical machine for 20 minutes- then they would re-soak all the bandages, bounce for another 20 minutes, re-soak and bounce again...for 3 rounds. After this you are done and they do your measurements again.
This whole experience was such a joke. I cannot believe I bought into the idea that this would actually work. Do I think body wraps work- yes. Do I think the body wraps used at Suddenly Slimmer work and are applied by professionals- NO. Do yourselves a favor and go to a legitimate spa for body wraps and other body slimming treatments.
Unbelievale Results with Ion foot cleanse – I have a lot of internal problems and one of the most hard to control has been candadia and lichen plantus of the mouth...... But doing the foot cleanse has been a tremendous help in clearing it up and keeping it cleared up......I also have a lot of problems with my legs it seems as if going to suddenly slimmer has helped as much as anything....I highly recommend their services....The staff and owner are super great and take really good care of you. Their wraps are also super great and help you to feel so much better.
Unbelievable Results – Over the last 4 months I have been in and out of the hospital in 2 different states with a knee problem. I was a college athlete that in a 4 month period I had 4 knee surgeries, 11 nights in the hospital and 2 months not walking. I was having troubles getting my knee to work again and saw my knee stuck. I came to Suddenly Slimmer to try some mineral wraps and it was the best decision ever. The wraps have made a huge difference in the amount i can bend my knee and have made huge strides in just a week. I recommend this place to everyone because it works. The staff is great and could not be more helpful and I will continue to go back.
Not Only Lost Inches I Feel Wonderful! – I am a new woman! Due to Hypothyroidism I gained 100 pounds before the doctors got it under control with medication. Then I spent a full year working on losing the weight the HARD way through calorie watching and exercise. I still had saggy skin and my body shape was not what I remembered before I got sick. Then, I saw a special on Rachel Ray Show about body wraps. I bought and read the book Fat Flush Diet too. THEN...I...FOUND...Suddenly Slimmer of Raliegh! They have become an important part of my body health plan. Not only did I lose inches, my skin felt healthier from the minerals in the solution they use. My body contour started getting back to what I remembered before I got sick. Additionally, I can only speak with highest regards for Barb and Tracy who wrapped me. They are pleasant, non-judgemental, encouraging, and most of all very smart in the profession! I RECOMMEND SUDDENLY SLIMMER OF RALIEGH WITH HIGHEST RATINGS!!! Try it once and you will see the benefits. I love my wraps.
THIS PRODUCT REALLY WORKS!!!! – I've had a time with my shoulder, and I've had several chiropractor appointments, and after leaving the doctors office I came to see Barb at Suddenly Slimmer and she basted and wrapped me and I felt wonderful. I really could not believe the results! In fact, at my next days doctors appointment my doctor actually asked me what I had done to loosen my self up! When I told him that I went next door to
Suddenly Slimmer, he said "wow, you may have made me a believer, I was always skeptical - but I can really tell a difference"!
SO...after that I broke my pinky toe. I had to wear flip flops for 3 weeks, and after being totally disgusted I of course came back to see Barb and she wrapped my foot and I actually left her a message at home that night because I was able to run up my stairs one foot after the other...which had not happened since I broke the toe, and to my surprise...the next day I wore my 3 inch heels to work :) It was truly UNBELIEVABLE!!!! I cannot say enough about this product, and the services Barb and her staff has given me! I would recommend this to anyone!
You will love the entire experience! – Suddenly Slimmer is well worth the expense and time commitment! Not only does the staff treat you better than family, but you get the physical benefits of using their great and varied products. No matter how thin you already are when you walk in, you will feel more comfortable in your de-toxed and better toned skin when you leave. Your clothes really do feel loose after each experience and your skin is tighter and more supple. (those unsightly cellulite dimples begin to disappear at the first visit!) I have taken my teenaged daughter with me and she loves it, too! If you want to treat yourself to feeling good - and to a staff that makes the experience even better: GO. You deserve it! You will want to go back - again and again.
Best Staff in the Triangle! – I start with that because obviously the product was awesome. Who doesn't want to detox and lose cellulite within a couple of hours? But the staff there was just so great at making you feel comfortable and at ease. They answered all my questions (and I had a million) with patience and made me feel like I was the only customer there when really they were probably helping 3 or 4 others at the same time.
The wrap was actually fun too. After they wrap you in a private room they bring you out where others are wrapped up too and you can visit with each other and watch TV.
It was a small price to pay to be able to fit back onto jeans that I had not been able to button in a year!
I'm going back next week with my sister!
Ridiculous Waste of Money and Such a SCAM!!! – I was so excited to get my body wrap and was disappointed on so many levels. Let me first say that I have had a body wrap before at a nice spa and it did do wonders for my skin and reduce some cellulite. Not the case this time. First, the location and space is very run down and gross. They wrap you in the bandages, which I believe do have minerals, but is just warm water. The bandages are practically falling apart and are sitting in a laundry basket with warm "minerals". Then they have you bounch on a small trampoline or move no a gizelle for 20, reapply the "minerals" and you do this three times. They claim you lose inches - um...they are using a tape measurer which all they have to do the next time is just pull it the tiniest bit tighter or use it slightly differently and there you go....you lost 0.1 inches - do this all over your body and now you supposedly lost more than 6 inches. My skin did not even look better and my cellulite was NO different. DO NOT waste your money (and it is expensive)!!!!!
