It’s time to talk about bloating! Whether it’s down to hormones, wheat or a sluggish system, bloating can be REALLY annoying, especially before that special occasion!
So, today, I wanted to share with you my top tips on how to beat the bloat this summer and shed an inch off your waistline.
FLUSH OUT THAT WATER – WITH WATER
Yes I know, it can seem a little nonsensical can’t it – you want to flush out any excess fluids, so why would you add in more… water?
Well, increasing your water intake will act to speed your metabolism, and flush out those pesky toxins, which will help you shed any excess water. Flatter tums all round then!
GET AN M.O.T WITH YOUR DOCTOR
Bloating can happen for many reasons, including (but not exclusive to):
- Hormonal imbalances
- Thyroid conditions
- Sluggish lymph system
- IBS and digestive disorders
- Food allergies and intolerances
- Heart and kidney conditions
It’s so easy to put bloat down to eating too much of that pasta – but if you find yourself suffering with it regularly, and in some people’s cases, daily – then do book a visit with your doctor.
KEEP YOUR SYSTEM ACTIVE
Another reason why we might be experiencing bloating is that we spend too long being inactive. So, make sure that you MOVE your body daily. Whether it be that you do some morning tai chi or yoga, or simply go for a walk on your lunch break.
Moving your body is essential as it keeps everything functioning smoothly. Any health conditions as I mentioned above, symptoms related to bloating and sluggishness can all be improved by keeping active.
Of course, sometimes, we may need a little extra help, and this is where treatments such as lymphatic drainage massage and a new revolutionary treatment called the ‘Ballancer’ come in.
TREATMENTS THAT WE OFFER
THE BODY BALLANCER: We are super excited to let you know that we will be offering free sessions for the BODY BALLANCER in clinic from the 16th onwards, and all you need to do to book one is contact us at [email protected].
SO WHAT IS IT AND WHAT WILL IT DO FOR YOU?
In a nutshell, it is a little like a sleeping bag, that you get comfy in, and allow it to all of its goodness to you! To be more technical it uses inflated compression garments to apply a gentle or firm massage to the limbs and torso, and a 30 minute treatment will get your lymphatic system working properly, draining effectively and will increase your metabolism and blood flow.
Phew! Pretty impressive isn’t it?
You can expect to feel lighter, slimmer, fitter, more energised, and it can be used by people who want to improve their overall lymphatic health and drainage, but also makes for a great accompaniment to anyone who wants to tone up, lose weight, or get rid of water retention and even cellulite!
One way we recommend you use this, is to slot it in alongside your 3D Lipo sessions, or, alongside some radiofrequency skin tightening.
But it is great to be used as a stand alone treatment, and on a beauty level with better lymphatic drainage you will definitely notice that you are less bloated, experience a reduction in facial and eye puffiness, and will have a glow about you as your circulation is increased.
If this is something that interests you and you would like to come into the clinic and try out the treatment during the next two weeks then please do let us know and yes it is FREE during this period, and if you feel like treating yourself even further, why not add on an express Taylormade facial for just £75 whilst you’re laying back enjoying it?
As always, it’s been a pleasure to have your company and I look forward to seeing what you think about the body ballancer.
Until the next time, have a great day, speak to you soon
