Mini Update: Theresa Beauty – Almost My Second Home!

theresa

This is my third and final mini post update on my slimming journey with Theresa Beauty! It’s now my third month visiting Theresa and I’m still faithfully going for my treatments 2-3x a week! My weight has dropped about 2-3kg since my first visit and it actually fluctuates a little (~ 200-500g), depending on whether my period is arriving, and whether I have my dinner (seriously!).

Through this slimming programme that Theresa had planned for me, I realized that dinner is what I call the “mover and shaker meal” and to lose weight, we really need to watch what we eat at night. Well, at least for me.

This body-hugging dress used to be quite tight and the cutting is such that I often have to tug at the sleeves or adjust the hem to feel more at ease in it. Knowing that it wasn’t a comfortable piece to wear, I had thrown it into some obscure corner in my wardrobe until I decided to dig it up again to try it on recently. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it fits now! This only means that I have dropped a size or so and a few colleagues had also complimented this dress. YAYYYY!

A big THANK YOU to Theresa for the 3 month-long ambassadorship-sponsorship opportunity! From the bottom of my heart, I really appreciate your kind service and hospitality as well during each and every one of my treatment sessions, and I have also happily made friends with the lovely consultants-therapists like SK, Cindy, Felice, Candy etc. A few more weeks to go before the end of my journey here, I will miss you all!

SK, the manager at Toa Payoh outlet, will always remind me to detox with the organic fruit juices! They now form part of my staple diet and yes, I’ve grown to consume more fruits (refreshing, juicy and yet friendly to my waistline) instead of unhealthy junk food.

Mini Update: My Slimming Journey with Theresa Beauty

In my previous post, I had just begun my slimming journey with Theresa Beauty! Once again thank you Theresa for the generous sponsorship and genuine interest in helping me achieve my weight/fat loss goals, targeting specific problem areas which have been troubling me. I very much appreciate the assistance and dedication from Theresa to help me get back into shape for my modeling gigs and to look good in any clothing I like, given the fashion crazed person that I am!

In this update, I’ll be focusing on the treatments that I’ve enjoyed at Theresa over the past month or so.

Theresa’s Sauna Treatment

I tried the Sauna Treatment at Theresa – they are also called “sweat baths,” attributed to healing, preventative, and cleansing properties. Do you know that the sauna treatment is a tradition originated from over two thousand years ago? The originators, Finland-ers or Finns, actually attribute their endurance and longevity to the tradition of sauna!

Basically, what happens to the body during a sauna is that your metabolism and pulse rates increase, your blood vessels become much more flexible, and your extremities benefit from increased circulation. Exercise enthusiasts will probably recognize that some of these changes can only be achieved through strenuous exercise. Not to say that a sauna would put you in excellent physical condition without moving a muscle, but that it brings about the same metabolic results as physical exercise.

The effects of the sauna are numerous and varied. Proponents of dry heat bath mention a feeling of psychological peace and contentment as well as physical rejuvenation. Many people claim that the sauna relieves the symptoms of minor illnesses such as colds, revives the muscles after tough physical exertion, and clears the complexion. The sauna experience will often leave you feeling very much alive. Your senses will be sharpened, and your tactile sensitivity heightened.

Indeed, I emerged out of the sauna feeling relaxed and my body felt soothed and energized, as if after an exercise. It was pretty hot during that 10-15 minutes I was inside, but still bearable. The mini facility even had magazines inside for customers to browse through while “enduring” the heat. But it was definitely worthwhile, given the benefits 🙂

 Hot Blanket Treatment

The hot blanket slimming therapy generates sweating and opens the pores so the elements of the wraps can reach a deeper layer of the skin and helps to eliminate the fatty tissues. Theresa’s body wraps contain minerals, trace elements and vitamins which are indispensable for life and well-being. The detoxing and slimming effect of the selected ingrediants are combined with the benefits of the hot blanket for the more toned and firmed result.

G5 VibroTrim Treatment

P4223159

Theresa’s G5 VibroTrim treatment can be used for a variety of uses, including stimulating the lymphatic system, which helps alleviate problems like puffy, fluid and swollen conditions in various parts of the body. It assists with the appearance of lumpy and congestion – your skin texture and appearance will be much smoother.

G5 VibroTrim treatment works on breaking down fatty deposits, cellulite and dispersing this with excess fluid through the lymphatic areas. This process allows an instant inch loss and a detox effect, as well as improvement in skin elasticity, collagen flow and blood circulation.

Theresa’s Body VibroTrim Gel contains natural herbal extracts with targeted properties. These help toprovide toning and firming of skin, cellulite and fatty tissues resulting in temporary but measurable reduction in body measurements making those “tight” clothes more comfortable.

A wonderful improvement in cellulite and texture of skin and elasticity and detox result will be felt and seen with instant inch loss, which means, benefits can be seen after the first treatment!

Will update again soon on my slimming programme with Theresa!

Though I’m still trying to get used to the low/no carbs and lots of fruits/vegetables/water diet, combined with Theresa’s organic juices 😉

Dorra Slimming Review!

Although I’ve tried quite a few places for slimming, I’m still excited about my first visit to dorra, the tummy, hip and thigh slimming expert from France, who specialises in providing fat-burning and body-shaping solutions that target and banish unsightly bumps and bulges on the lower body of women.

Lower body weight problems have been and will always be the main issue troubling most women. Women tend to put on inches on their lower body more easily than men because of the higher estrogen levels in their body and the fat cells there which are more prone to fat storage for childbearing purposes.

 Besides, women burn fat differently from men. Women who have dieted will notice that as they lose weight, body fat starts melting away from the upper body first, while lower body fat tends to stay put. Furthermore, unhealthy habits such as long hours of sitting, love for high calorie food and sitting cross legged make it even more difficult for ladies to lose the excess fat on the lower body.

If only we could have a treadmill each, right at our work desks?!

Exactly for me, I would consider myself living a sedentary lifestyle right as most of the day (and even night, omg!) I’m sitting at a desk working on the computer. I find time to exercise whenever I’m free, or after office hours, but that can really be so challenging when work becomes hectic (recently this is more frequent).

So I’m really thankful when dorra comes knocking with a trial for me to experience slimming at their outlet. I had an open mind about it, casting away any suspicions of hard-selling or sales tactics, and just want to try their slimming treatments at my problem areas.

A little introduction about dorra’s promise before my review:

dorra’s proven effective therapies work by targeting your trouble spots, breaking down stubborn fat and cellulite without bringing damage to your skin, muscle, bones and nerves. Specifically developed to treat lower body concerns such as love handles, bulging tummy, cellulite, heavy thighs, wide hips or post natal weight gain, our extensive range of anti-flab and anti-cellulite solutions can be customised to one’s specific needs, and can banish even the most stubborn fat that you’ve had for years.

 Currently with 6 outlets in Singapore, dorra has helped more that 16,000 ladies to slim down quickly and effectively, bringing them an inch closer to the ideal figure they’ve always yearned for. dorra has been particularly well-received among working ladies and busy housewives because the first treatment only requires 90 minutes!

I went to the Heartland Mall outlet, and was about 35 minutes late because of bad traffic and well, couldn’t get out of bed as I was down with flu. The great thing is that it wasn’t difficult to get there, and I spotted dorra almost instantly after arriving at Level 2.

To me, dorra had a welcoming feel to both its entrance and interiors – not too clinical, so overall I enjoyed the positive vibes from the staff, who behaved professionally and presented themselves well. One of them ushered me in to have my belongings put neatly into a dedicated locker, no questions or unhappiness about my lateness. Whew! After taking some pictures around the parlour, I took my height, weight and a Body Composition Analysis in just a few minutes. The Analysis was done with the help of a body composition analyzer, which found out my waist-hip ratio and the percentage of body fat, protein, water and salt (or sodium) in specific parts of my body. These will be carefully monitored throughout my slimming journey at dorra.

A typical consultation room at dorra’s

Thereafter I was introduced to Cherry, my personal consultant, a slim and pretty lady who had polished manners and a sincere attitude. Cherry offered me a one-to-one consultation that allowed her a preliminary understanding of my problem areas, eating habits, lifestyle and possible causes of my problem areas. To be honest, and I don’t mind revealing here – Cherry deduced that my metabolism is rather low (likely due to low frequency of exercise and a sedentary lifestyle). Another concern is water retention. One consolation is that I don’t have much cellulite. Yeahhh!

Cherry explained that for that evening’s session, she will perform one Customised French Formulated Slimming Treatment. For me, it’ll be the Bye Bye Fat Treatment using a gentle booster to activate my body’s lipase (tummy area) and another booster to reduce water retention (full body).

Large frame just beside the reception, reminding customers of their desired body shape. I guess most women will like to look like that, no? To me, the image doesn’t just present a healthy, slender lady who has a body to flaunt, but that she also possesses an outstanding personality and confidence that she’s ready to face the world. Just look at that picture-perfect pose!

For the next 20-30 minutes, I was in a private room having my treatment. I must say I really enjoyed it, Cherry is both a wonderful consultant and therapist, and was patient and sweet throughout. At dorra’s, your consultant and therapist is the same person, to ensure a consistent level of privacy and personal touch as only she attends to you and your needs.

To mention a little about the machine I used – unlike other treatments I’ve received at other slimming/beauty centers, I feel comfortable with dorra’s as the applicator feels very warm and soothing; no discomfort at all. As Cherry was using the applicator to massage my tummy and waist/hip areas, together with the booster gel, I felt so at ease that I nearly fell asleep! The only thing that prevented me from doing so was my conversation with Cherry…she was giving me some healths tips and advice, and answering my queries throughout. After that session, I would highly recommend Cherry as my preferred therapist cum consultant as I find her very pleasant, likeable and genuine.

Before I realize it, I was done with my customized slimming programme, using the latest fat-burning and body-shaping technologies from France to target the stubborn fats on my tummy! Cherry took before and after photos, but I won’t be sharing them on my blog to safeguard my privacy. Overall, however, I’m happy to say that I’ve lost 2.9cm at my tummy/waist/hip/midriff areas in just 1 session! Midriff lost the most (-0.9cm), followed by waist (-0.8cm) and hip (-0.7cm).

How it works is that the a booster gel that was applied during the treatment contains mico-molecules which can penetrate deep into my skin to reach and burn excess fats. Infra-red equipment will then be used to soften the fat cells and an oxy trimming gel was also applied to improve blood circulation, which in turns aids in flushing out excess fatty acids. So you can expect to see some results in only 1 session (at least in my case). Everybody’s problem areas and weight issues are different, so I won’t be speaking for the masses. That being said, the customized programme, treatment(s) and even products used at dorra’s are definitely greatly appreciated!

Feeling good after my treatment, as I experienced a flatter tummy, less bloating and flatulence 🙂

In just 1 session, you’ll burn 600-2400 calories, which is equivalent to a 10-15km run!

No pills, no injections, no crash diets! You’ll see visible CM loss in just 90 minutes 🙂

 Subsequent treatments only require 20-40mins, saving minutes of your precious time. You can expect 14-30cm loss in just 14 days.

With lovely Cherry, who readily posed for my camera! She’s such a natural beauty, and really, I seldom praise beauticians because most of them are too sales-driven for my liking!

Thanks Cherry! For your help, advice and after-treatment texts to follow up on my condition and well-being 🙂

I was given a set of home-care to bring back – it contains the Ultimate Cellu-lite Cream 513 and Ultra Toning Gel 525. Both are suitable for all skin types.

Ultimate Cellu-lite Cream 513: Specially formulated to battle uneven bodyline due to accumulation of fats on tummy, hip and thighs. It contains actives like AMM and Methyl Nicotinate that promotes blood circulation on targeted areas and gradually trims bodyline. It also nourishes and hydrates skin epidermis layer, thus reveals a youthful complexion.

My verdict: To be used with the Ultra Toning Gel concurrently to minimize a burning sensation and slight redness of the skin due to the active ingredients working their magic.

Ultra Toning Gel: Specially formulated gel that refines and reshapes your silhouette, making your skin feel firmer, tighter and appears more toned.

My verdict: It feels cool on the skin and when massaged well into skin, the product becomes fully absorbed and doesn’t feel sticky at all. I love it!
