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.

 

 

Avoid Early Death... Get Moving!

The medical journal BMJ published a report today that links a lower risk of early death to higher levels of physical activity at any intensity in middle-aged and older people. Previous studies have repeatedly suggested that any type of sedentary behavior, such as sitting still, is not good for your health. Being sedentary for 9.5 hours or more a day, excluding sleeping time, is associated with an increased risk of death. Led by Prof. Ulf Ekelund of the Norwegian School of Sports Sciences located in Oslo, Norway, researchers analyzed studies that assessed how physical activity and sedentary time were linked with risk of an early death.

Using accelerometers -- a wearable device that tracks the volume and intensity of activity -- to measure total activity, intensity levels were separated into categories of light, moderate and vigorous.Cooking or washing dishes were examples of light intensity, brisk walking or mowing the lawn were considered moderate intensity, and jogging or carrying heavy loads were used as examples of vigorous intensity.
The risk of death for participants was approximately five times higher for those who were inactive compared to those who were the most active, according to the researchers. The study was conducted in the United States and Western Europe on 36,383 adults who were at least 40 years old with an average age of 62. Participants were tracked over an average of 5.8 years.

However, the findings in the study may not apply to other populations and younger people. At least 150 minutes of moderate intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous physical activity each week are recommended guidelines, according to the National Institute for Health. Although, the study says that these guidelines are based on self-reported activity, which is often imprecise. According to the researchers, the public health message may simply be: "Sit less and move more and more often."
