As the first signs of spring approach, no doubt you’re eagerly awaiting the sunshine and a chance to don your summer wardrobe! But perhaps the thought of baring all in a bikini, is a slightly more daunting thought. Allowing yourself enough time to lose unwanted pounds and tone up is the healthiest and most sensible way to achieve your desired beach body. So, with that said, now is the time to get started!
This week I visited Ice Clinic in Beckenham for their signature Body Blitzing Bootcamp package: the perfect accompaniment to your Power Pilates classes. The hour and a half treatment starts with an overall dry body brush, highly recommended to aid the breakdown of cellulite. (You can even do this yourself at home before bathing.)
Next up is a session of Lipotripsy: a specialised machine that penetrates radical waves through the skin, stimulating fat breakdown, collagen synthesis and lymphatic drainage. Sounds good hey? Cellulite, being a particularly stubborn fat, needs to be broken down and flushed through the system. One of the most effective ways of doing this is by stimulating affected areas. Lipotripsy provides improvement of blood flow to the skin, which aids the breakdown process. And apparently a course of 8-10 of these treatments can greatly improve the appearance of cellulite. If used in conjunction with effective exercise (yep, that’s where we come in!) a healthy diet and plenty of water, then the results can be even better. The treatment itself is pain free and pretty relaxing really.
The part I was most looking forward to however, was my Shrinking Violet wrap….First of all I was smothered with a special detoxifying gel and then literally wrapped in cling film! I was then laid back down, covered in a sliver foil and a blanket, where I was left to relax for 45 minutes. Yes, I did feel a bit like a Christmas Turkey pre roasting, but comical aspect set aside, it wasn’t long before I drifted off to sleep in my warm cocoon…
After, being unwrapped (well, actually I was cut out of the cling film) I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had lost about a centimetre from each leg and also my waist, after just one session.
