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.

http://helenaswax.com/blog/images/blog/sauna/infrared-sauna-benefits.jpg

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.

Benefits

1. Detoxifies and burns fat

2. Quickens lipolysis. Remove unwanted fats in your Tummy, waist, hip and four limbs

3. Extracts waste from the body such as heavy metals, poisons etc

4. Speeds up metabolism and enhances absorption of nutrients

5. Acts as physical therapy for myalgia & neurosis. Balances the autonomic nervous system and has a beneficial effect on sore muscles, lactic acid and the liver

6. Improves the immune system and prevents growth of cancer cells

7. Diminishes inflammation

8. Speeds up metabolism so that improves functioning of organs, such as liver, intestine and stomach

9. Eliminate intense and pressure of life and promote working efficiency

10. Recuperates insufficiency physiological exercise, promotes sleep and sleepiness

11. Improve skin smoothness and fairness, resulting also to brighter skin

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! So far I’ve lost about 1kg (not a dramatic loss as I’m already quite petite and it’s really about spot reduction) and I’m really excited to see this number grow! 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 😉

A Better Figure & More Confidence with Theresa Beauty!

pinkumbrella

My readers will know I’ve been very interested in slimming programmes and treatments recently. Indeed, I’ve been finding out about slimming products like pills and this popular detox drink (that also encourages weight loss) called teatox. Well, before I sidetrack, it’s really because I’ve set my weight loss aim – to lose 5kg and be back to my very slim days when I was doing lots of sports and cheerleading back in junior college. This desk-bound job definitely isn’t doing justice to how I want to look like, especially with age catching up.

 If I don’t lose the weight now, then when? friesFries – one of my BIGGEST weaknesses, even though they add a load to my waistline and give me sorethroats

Unhealthy eating habits and lifestyle habits result in harmful toxins being created in our body, which accumulates over time, thus creating difficulties in our body. A very common consequence caused by this act is the decrease in metabolism. I don’t eat super unhealthily or totally indulge in good foods without control, but I don’t watch my diet very carefully either. Like many others, I have a sweet tooth and soft spot for desserts, cold sweet beverages and high fat, deep fried snacks and chips. Every girl’s favorite, isn’t it?

http://m.rgbimg.com/cache1qyFEv/users/j/ju/julos/600/n2ndOte.jpg

Yeah it’s so hard to resist fast food sometimes – McDonald’s can’t stop creating new burgers for its consumers!

 Also due to the lack of exercise, slow metabolism is likely to lead to weight gain and increase in body fats. Obesity is a threat to the entire health including cardiac health. It generally results in decreased energy levels, stamina and a feeling of continuous fatigue. Perhaps I haven’t become obese (many people will say I’m far from it), but I’ve decided to start increasing my metabolism and lose those stubborn fats I’ve had all these years. Facts aside, I really miss those active days when I could run for miles without much fatigue or breathlessness (blame it on the age?), and fit into the tiniest tops and skirts. I mean c’mon, who doesn’t like to show off a little contours right? Hahaha!

stopdreaming

Yeah stop dreaming and EATING!

Thanks to Theresa Beauty, I’ve begun my journey to a better figure and health as I’m typing this. Fitting into those figure-hugging outfits are no longer an issue for me. It also means that I can dress up as confidently and freely as I want without limiting myself to any outfits.

For a start, to stay healthy from the inside, a detoxification process at this point is considered vital. The best method to follow this cleansing process is to use natural antioxidants found in organic juices and similar products. I’ll elaborate more about my 3-day detox programme just drinking organic juices and consuming very light foods like salads and fruits in awhile.

http://theresabeauty.com.sg/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/lady_home.png

It all began with a Body Composition analysis at Theresa Beauty (Toa Payoh) which gives my consultant and therapist, Felice, an insight into the gross distribution of the various elements of my body, e.g. my body composition in terms of water, fat and lean body mass.

She also takes an overview of all the associated risks and coexisting medical problems, social and personal situations and precipitating factors that may be related to my present weight (which to me, is not ideal). This information helps set the guidelines for formulating an appropriate and feasible program that achieves weight loss while promoting wellness for me. Theresa’s interiors has a very comforting look and feel that makes me feel like it’s a haven for relaxation while slimming my way towards my physical goals.

For my first treatment after the consultation, the focus would be on detoxing my body system. I was led into a spacious treatment room with a comfortable atmosphere to change into bathing ropes.

1st Session

P3292974

The lights were thoughtfully turned down for a more relaxing and conducive feel during treatments, and possibly to make customers feel less self conscious of themselves.

I was given a slimming massage while lying on a bed that was heating up to give my body a round of detoxification. I was covered warmly with blankets to perspire as much as possible on the hot bed, literally, to maximize the effectiveness of the process. It lasted for at least half and hour, and I was feeling a little uncomfortable towards the end when the heat became stronger. It was necessary, nonetheless, and I was relieved climbing out and taking a shower after the bout of perspiration. Just 10 minutes after the shower, I felt that pleasurable sensation – like I’ve just completed a workout! It was an amazing feeling of lightness when you know that your body has flushed out most of the toxins you don’t want!

2nd Session

To introduce this machine that I used for my 2nd treatment – it’s the 3-MAX.

3-MAX is an innovative 3-in-1 system for

1) Perfect body shaping

2) Cellulite reduction and

3) Dynamic eye lifting. Definitely non-surgical, does not cause any pain, side effects or discomfort

3-MAX has the following characteristics/features:

  1. Synergetic combination of multi-polar RF, Vacuum and Cavitation (for cellulite reduction and body reshaping)
  2. Targeted treatment for eye & neck lifting (using a specially designed bi-polar applicator)
  3. Dynamic & strong vibration effect (by a special pneumatic suction system)
  4. Lymphatic drainage effect with 4 types of pulse

What was applied on me was the Ultrasonic Cavitation, meant for fat reduction & cellulite treatment.

Stimulating continuously with strong cavitation pressure wave leads to disrupt the emulsion and triglyceride contents in adipocytes. The released fatty acids are cleared by endogenous processes.

Multi-& Bi-Polar Radiofrequency and Vacuum

3-MAX™ USER INTERFACE

3-MAX user interface

The latest radiofrequency technology that painlessly delivers focused and optimal RF energy to the skin surface and to subcutaneous fat layers. Controlled energy is delivered via three or more electrodes, centered between them, and limited only to the treatment area. This focused delivery results in improved treatment efficacy requiring much less power. The treatment is painless and pleasant because of the relatively low power needed.

The bi-polar radiofreqvency heats the tissue in 5~10 mm depth, increases oxygen intracellular diffusion by heat and promotes metabolism of fat cells & lipolytic activities. The combined effect of radiofrequency and vacuum is the ideal fat reduction and cellulite treatment with excellent results and no side effects.

3-MAX™ the Optimum Solution for Cellulite and Body Shaping treatment

Ideal combinations of powerful Cavitation, RF and Vacuum comfortably achieve a toned, contoured and well shaped body through a safe, non-surgical painless treatment.
+ the ultrasonic cavitation applicator continously emits sounds waves at an intensity that combines the acoustic energy with a termal effect, mainly in the deep fat layer.
+ after the cavitation treatment, the RF with vacuum suction acts by delivering thermal energy and facilitating lymphatic drainage in the fat layer which is at a lower depth than the region treated by the cavitation

3rd Session

The 2nd machine I tried in my third session has an amazing repertoire of 41 programmes! From stress-relieving massage to thigh toning to face lift to lymphatic drainage to targeting the different types of cellulite, this machine is practically a one size fits all solution to many issues.

P4053082

While I had laid comfortably down, the branch manager SK and her assistant/trainee Candy was preparing the machine for my utilization, strapping on fabric wraps and fastening the wire controls, taking about 10 minutes to ensure that all my target areas have been addressed – mainly the thighs, tummy and the back of my arms. Bye bye fats and flabbiness!

P4053085

When the treatment began, I felt like I was “zapped” lightly in the above mentioned specific areas for the machine to work its magic. It was performed in 2 phases – detoxification followed by firming/toning. The treatment lasted for about 30-40mins. And I was done!

So this concludes my first 3 treatment sessions with Theresa Beauty, and I have to honestly say that I really enjoy the treatments which were very comfortable and snappy. I’m in and out of the beauty center in less than an hour, which is perfectly awesome to fit into my busy schedule. Moreover, it’s not too far from my home in Toa Payoh 🙂

For slimming treatments to be effective, it’s necessary to go for them frequently i.e. 2-3 times a week.

There’s no point to visit once, stop for a month and come back again at irregular intervals because then you’ll probably see little or no results, simply due to the inconsistency.

To supplement my 3-month long slimming programme at Theresa, they have very kindly sponsored me 27 bottles of the organic juices in a variety of flavors and concoctions.

P4033076

P4033077
Theresa’s 7-day Organic Juice detox program will help their customers shed unwanted pounds quickly while also effectively cleansing the body of harmful toxins and pollutants. This was a sold immediately – losing that few pounds off me is means 3 steps closer to my physical goal.
Theresa guarantees that in 7 days, you will look and feel significantly better!

I heard that most customers who are on this programme found themselves shedding those pounds off within the first 3 days. They have also found that they are sleeping better and their overall mood has improved positively and energetically.

This Organic Juice Detox is a very powerful cleanse and you can expect significant healing and protective benefits. The health benefits depend heavily on the microscopic, beneficial chemicals inside the juices – like enzymes, catechins, antioxidants, and polyphenols.

Here’s a breakdown of exactly how this Detox program will work for you:

1. Beautiful Skin and Anti-Aging

Positively loaded with antioxidants, which aid in a clear complexion, mostly thanks to enhanced organ function. They help keep you young and vibrant looking!

2. Detoxification

Naturally formulated to pull any nasty stuff right through your system. It helps your liver and kidneys process and eject waste faster and more efficiently.

3. Weight Loss

This is the one you’ve been waiting for! Recent research suggests that organic juice phytochemicals and flavonoids may play important roles in various areas of health. These studies demonstrate a wide range of healthful benefits attained with a consistent intake of Theresa’s organic juices, including:

• Reduced body fat by activating the enzyme that is responsible for dissipating triglyceride

• Significantly lower cholesterol levels

• Reduces high blood pressure

• Reduces blood sugar

• Reduced risk of stroke, heart failure, cancers and diabetes

• Helps protect the skin from UV radiation-induced damage and tumor formation

• Delay of some forms of aging – dark spots and wrinkles – when combined with regular exercise

4. Reduces risk of disease

Damaging free radicals in the body can accumulate over time, leading to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and other degenerative diseases. Antioxidants work to reduce free radicals and heal the damages from the inside out. Less damage means a reduced risk of disease.

I have just completed 3 Days of my Detox Programme with Theresa and am already feeling lighter and slimmer! Throughout the 3 days, I was mostly consuming only the organic juices, unless I really felt like I really needed to eat. I consumed light, low calorie/fat foods like salads, muesli bars and fruits to curb the hunger pangs.

If I can’t have someone to love.

At least I can love myself. If only I look this good…. 🙂 Pardon me, but I’m constantly bewitched by beauty.

I think most forms of such physical beauty is man made anyway, why not investments in myself than the efforts in fruitless pursuits?
