NEW Contour Light Body Sculpting!

It is with great pleasure and excitement we announce the addition of the new Contour Light Program into our office.

The Contour Light Program enables you to improve your health by taking inches off those hard to reduce places like your waistline, hips, thighs, arms and chin. The Contour Light Program treats all the areas of your body resistant to diet and exercise. In fact, Contour Light clients lose between 5 to 20 inches in less than a month!

Breakthrough Technology to Get Rid of Cellulite

Until this technology arrived, if a people wanted to lose fat quickly, their only choice was a strict diet combined with strenuous exercise, which is a time consuming, daunting task for most people and difficult to accomplish. The Contour Light Program offers simple nutritional suggestions and easy exercise options combined with a 20-25 minute, relaxing treatment that accelerates the fat burning capabilities within your body. In just one 25-minute Contour Light session, your body can reduce the equivalent amount of fat as completing SEVEN 30-minute cardio workouts!

The Contour Light treatment is painless. You can expect to feel a gentle warming sensation. Most individuals will read or listen to music, and some will take a nap during the 20-25 minute session. The Contour Light treatment is safe for almost everyone (certain contraindications preclude some individuals from being treated) and there are no negative side effects. One of the best parts about the Contour Light Program is you can resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment because there is no recovery or downtime.

As you can tell, we are very excited about this breakthrough technology and would love to have the opportunity to tell you more about it. If you would like to improve your health and experience quick, but safe fat reduction, please contact the office.

Maintaining Healthy Joints

While thinking about our fitness regime, we often tend to overlook a crucial area- the joints. They primarily guide movement of our bodies, and it’s important to look after them. Here are 5 ways to take care of our joints:

Good Weight

Essentially, the heavier you are, the greater the impact on the joints and the stronger the muscles have to be to control movements, explains Laura Jamieson, a chartered physiotherapist. Ensuring that muscle-mass percentage is higher than body-fat percentage is crucial to maintaining muscle strength, which helps to ensure you move well. Registered dietitian Sue Baic, a spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association, breaks it down: “For every 0.5kg (1lb) lost, we reduce the weight going through the knee joint at each step by 2kg (4.5lb).” Excess body fat, especially around the abdomen, is also inflammatory, making any osteoarthritis symptoms worse.

Good Exercise

“A common misconception is that people think exercise will aggravate joint pain,” says Giles Stafford, a consultant orthopaedic hip surgeon at the Wellington Hospital, part of HCA Healthcare UK. But strengthening the muscles around joints is important, says Stafford, especially if you have any issues with them, as it will minimise the pressure on them. Hip problems, for example, can be improved or even prevented by maintaining a good functional range of motion and muscle strength. Stafford recommends body weight exercises such as squats and lunges, and light dumbbell exercises such as bicep curls.

Good Variety

When it comes to exercise, variety is key. Jamieson recommends a mixture of impact and non-impact cardio for good bone density and strength training (ensuring guidance is sought for correct technique). Yoga can help maintain good mobility but Jamieson says to combine it with other forms of exercise. Stafford warns against over-stretching: “It can take the joint past its natural physiological range, which can cause damage to the joint and surrounding structures.”

Good Food

“Some recent research has suggested that diets high in saturated fat – found in fatty meats and meat products, full-fat dairy, cakes, biscuits, butter and coconut oil – can weaken the cartilage in the knee and hip so that it is more prone to damage and loss of cushioning,” says Baic. She recommends a Mediterranean-style diet, higher in monounsaturated fats such as olive or rapeseed oil, with plenty of fruit, vegetables, wholegrains, nuts and seeds. As omega-3 fat is anti-inflammatory, Baic suggests one to two servings of oily fish each week (or in the recommended dose if taken in oil form). Also pay attention to your vitamin D levels, which are crucial for bone development.

Good Posture

Maintaining good posture is key to preventing joint issues, says Jamieson. “You want to be very careful of your back particularly: there is no surgery that will replace your discs or spine yet.” The NHS publishes an online guide tackling common posture mistakes. It is also important to wear the correct, supportive footwear for exercises and activity.
