Hello beautiful ladies!

With the festive season in full swing, I’m sure the month of December will be one filled with tons of dinner parties and get-togethers for you. December has never been too kind to anyone’s waistline. While we are not going to stop you from feasting and making merry during Christmas, don’t be too surprised when you step on the scale and find yourself a few kilos heavier! It’s pretty normal for people to gain weight at the end of the year. I mean how could you not, when good food is everywhere? We know it’s difficult for you to hold yourself back, when everyone around you is making merry. Watching your diet becomes practically impossible. But fret not, because Slim Couture is here for you any time of the year. We may not be Santa Claus, but we promise to be the fairy god mother that will whip you back into shape.

If you’re considering taking up a package with us, here are 10 Frequently Asked Questions that we hope will put your worries at ease and also provide you with a deeper understanding of what it is that we do here at Slim Couture. Most people’s New Year Resolutions also include “slimming down” as one of them, and we can help you achieve that in 2016.

 

1. Are Slim Couture’s methods of TCM slimming safe for my health?

As compared to taking slimming supplements and crash dieting, TCM slimming method is healthy, does not have side effect, and the results are long-lasting. Moreover, it helps to regulate blood circulation, internal secretion, detoxing, improve metabolism and digestion, which helps to promote the overall healthy effect on slimming. It is not always as simple as in the case that the more you eat, the more weight you gain. Most people believe that weight is gained from overeating, which is in fact true for most cases, but it fails to explain that how can some people simply can lose weight even though they are heavy eaters while some just simply gain weight easily, even just by eating small portions of meal and drinking only water. Traditional Chinese Medicine studies the relationship between having healthy internal organs and the overall well-being of a person.

There are some centers using fire therapy where burn injuries can be a concern if the procedure is not done well. Patient can suffer a second or third degree burn as a result of direct dry heat to the skin. Practitioners should take all precautions to prevent burn injuries and be trained in first aid to handle burn injuries. Place of practice must be equipped with first aid equipments and burns dressing. Fire treatment should not be done on patients with hypertension and diabetes. We would strongly suggest for the safety of all patients not to take risk of receiving fire therapy. At Slim Couture, our cupping is done be an advanced suction and electromagnetic technology.

 

2. Why is it priced at $220 for one treatment session?

Slim Couture treatments are advanced, yet traditional and scientific at the same time. Slim Couture uses gua sha (刮痧) and cupping (拔罐) methods to aid the body in raising its metabolism rate and promote localized healing. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system.

Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite. Like acupuncture, cupping follows the lines of the meridians. By targeting the meridian channels, cupping strives to ‘open’ these channels – the paths through which life energy flows freely throughout the body, through all tissues and organs, thus providing a smoother and more free-flowing qi (life force).

When Gua Sha is applied, it quickly releases blockages in your body that has been caused by stagnant blood. It actually mimics sweating and promotes circulation of your body fluids. By doing so, it helps to normalize cellular metabolic processes and release toxic waste from your deep cellular tissues.

These meticulous treatments are carried out by our highly trained & dedicated staff who will make sure you’re as comfortable as possible during your session, which lasts about 1 hour long.

 

3. How effective is the treatment itself if I do not follow the diet?

While Slim Couture encourages all its customers to follow the diet as strictly as possible in order to achieve maximum results, it is not uncommon to hear of our clients managing to shed a few inches and kilograms without even following the diet at all. This highly depends on individual basis, how your body reacts to the treatment and the type of food you are consuming. It is also highly likely that you will still be able to see visual difference in appearances of cellulite and lumpy silhouette when undergoing treatment, even if you have not been keeping to the diet well, because of the treatment’s natural detoxifying effects.

 

4. Is the treatment painful?

Like the old saying goes – no pain, no gain. Most of our customers find our treatments to be slightly to moderately painful but still very bearable, while some can even comment that our gua sha technique feels relaxing on their back. The sensation will take awhile to get used to, especially if you have never done gua sha or cupping before, but it is within the acceptable range for most people and if at any point you do not feel comfortable with our treatment, you can let our therapists know how you feel. It will be less painful as your number of treatments increase, and your body adapts to the treatments.

 

5. Who would be suitable candidates for Slim Couture’s treatments?

As our treatment are non-invasive and 100% safe with additional health benefits, most people are suitable to undergo our Divine Slim therapy, most notably women who are at least one of the following: obese, overweight, feeling chubby, want to lose a few extra inches off their problem areas or just women who feel like keeping svelte is getting more difficult as they get older. From young adults to elderly women, we welcome beautiful ladies of all ages to join us. However, if you have one or more of the following, it is best to arrange a consultation with us to see if this treatment is truly suitable for you: severe coronary artery diseases, liver and kidney impairment, generalise edema, dermatological disorders, burn injuries, thrombocytopenia and haematological disorders.

 

6. How many sessions do I require in order to see results?

You can see result from as soon as the second session, both in your measurements and number on the scale, as long as you have been good and followed the diet to a reasonable extent. Customers have been known to lose at least 1kg and up to 3kg from the first session!

 

7. What makes Slim Couture different from other TCM slimming centers out there?

Some places claim to offer healthy TCM methods for you to lose weight, but one of the requirements for their treatment includes drinking very little water. To us, this makes no sense at all. While slimming down and losing weight is our primary goal, we want you to be able to do so in the healthiest and most natural way possible. There are some centers asking clients to drink 300-500 ml water a day while undergoing their slimming treatment, which we feel is not the right way.

Hydration is important to keep the body going in all activities of daily living. As such, it is important to have adequate hydration. Restriction of fluid will lead to dehydration and possible medical conditions. Normal requirements for a healthy adult is between 1.5 litres to 2 litres, and if the person is on a slimming program they should increase their intake depending on personal requirements. This should be advised by the therapists. All our staff are professionally trained by Dr Colin Chan. Slim Couture believes in doing things the proper way as if the cupping is being performed on the wrong acupoint, it can end up causing a reverse reaction, harming the customer’s body instead. Because of our 100% success rate, we are confident enough to offer you a money back guarantee should you not be seeing any results at all, so you can be assured of the quality of our services.

 

8. Can I choose to work on target problem areas only if I’m not generally overweight?

Most definitely. Even if you are not actually overweight or chubby, but you feel like you have flabby arms, a stomach that could be a lot flatter, or thunder thighs, we will be able to work on those problem areas for you and target them specifically. If you’ve always had baby or stubborn fat that you couldn’t shed off no matter what sort of exercise or diet you’ve tried, then it’s time to place yourself in our good hands!

 

9. Do I need to exercise regularly while on the treatment?

Ladies, you will love to hear this: the answer is no. In fact, we discourage you from doing vigorous exercises as it may interfere with our treatment. If you have the habit of working out, it is recommend that you partake in light exercises only every now and then to keep your body fit, but it is not actually necessary to do any exercise while on our treatment as Divine Slim will do all the job for you. One session of Divine Slim equals to burning 2,000 calories! Imagine the amount of effort and time you’d take to burn that off in the gym!

 

10. Will my weight rebound after I stop the treatments and if so, how can I prevent this situation?

The great thing about our treatment is that because your weight loss was achieved through a wholesome method and not through taking diet supplements, crash dieting or some other unrealistic slimming fad, your weight will not pile back on the moment you stop your treatment with us. In fact, Slim Couture has a very high success rate of customers managing to maintain their weight even after their treatments have ended, because our recommended diet encourages a healthier lifestyle and moderate food portions. Of course, the results of weight rebound also highly depends on how much calories you consume on a daily basis, and no matter what slimming treatment you explore, the weight will still find its way back to you if you over indulge in excessive portions more often than you should. You can continue consuming carbohydrates and your other favorite fattening foods in moderate amounts. Moderation is the key. It is also suggested to our clients that they should come back every now and then for some maintenance sessions, just so we can also keep an eye on you – we don’t want all your hard work & efforts to go to waste! We understand it’s easier to keep to a diet when you’re being watched!

With that, Slim Couture wishes everyone out there a very blessed Christmas and a fantabulous year of 2016 to come!!!

Do you remember Magdelene, our lucky Facebook fan who won our Facebook give-away contest in May? We’re back to share updates on her stunning progress with Slim Couture!

Magdelene’s BEFORE photos

Here’s a quick recap of Magdelene and her weight loss struggle:

Magdelene used to be much slimmer previously, but succumbed to the temptation of taking slimming pills due to peer pressure, and ballooned to twice her size after that! Although Magdelene lost some weight with the slimming pills, it came back double and even more, which made Magdelene very upset and depressed.

Through her friends who are already existing customers of Slim Couture, Magdelene learnt about us and here she is at Slim Couture now to begin her weight loss journey!

On Magdelene’s first session: weighing at 79.6kg

When Magdelene first started with Slim Couture, she weighed at 79.6kg. On the last update we shared on Magdelene, in July, four months ago, she had already successfully lost 7.6kg!

After four months of Divine Slim treatment, Sharon lost 9.8kg and looks slim and healthy now!

We conducted a short Q&A session with Sharon to find out more about her and how she feels about successfully losing so much weight, as well as to get some advice and tips from her on wedding planning!

1. How did you gain weight?

Sharon: After secondary school I stopped exercising and ate whatever I wanted. After a couple of years, my metabolism started to slow down and I started to put on weight. I didn’t realize how fat I was until I realize I can’t fit into my dresses and when I buy new ones, I could only get size L.

2. Why did you choose SC instead of other slimming centres?

Sharon: I don’t like to exercise especially running and I feel insecure working out in the gym as I’m afraid of wary eyes. After discovering Yina Goh and Shiberty’s blog on their weight lost, I became interested and wanted to try for myself though the cost per session is not cheap. I’ve personally went to another slimming centre before but they close early and I couldn’t make it in time.

3. Why is it important for you to lose weight?

Sharon: I didn’t feel good and secure about myself. I look huge in a swimsuit! Most importantly I wanted to look good on my wedding photos and wedding day.

4. What was the best and worst part of the treatment/programme for you?

Sharon: I was very apprehensive at first but decided that I should do something about my size and weight. At first I really don’t like the gua sha part of the treatment cause I would be cringing in pain. I didn’t like the cupping too cause I would get bubbles sometimes and I couldn’t wear sleeveless clothes for a whole four months! I didn’t like dieting either- cannot eat this and that.

But I saw what the diet and treatment did for me and it was good. My relatives who used to always say I’m fat said the money is well worth it!

Now, after graduating from the program, I’m no longer strictly following a diet but there is no visible difference in my figure and my friends who see me are still remarking on my weight loss success! I actually miss getting a good gua sha as it works so well for my water retention.

I really like that the staff are always so friendly and happy.

5. How do you feel after successfully losing weight?

Sharon: I was happy that I lost about 10kg after four months and could wear back my size S clothes. I looked good in the dresses that I like but couldn’t fit in last time. I’m still pear shaped (family heredity) but looks healthier now. Family and friends praised that my wedding photos looks great and I’m glad not much photoshop was needed.

6. Any advice for brides-to-be on their wedding planning/wedding day?

Sharon: A. Plan early. Pack early. This allows you to have time to look for a bridal shop that have the dresses you like and get into shape. It also allows you to find a place if your house is not ready.
B. Get the help you need and don’t try to do everything yourself.
C. Talk to both sides of the parents about the traditional stuff in advance (holding a traditional wedding is usually not your choice but your family’s).
D. Remember to take photo with your family (I didn’t take any during the solemnisation and banquet and really regretted it).
E. Enjoy every bit of the planning and the actual day. Let your helpers do their duty and just relax.
