Some of you might know that i have been with Shou for a while now and i’m still with them! i love the people and treatment there — so far a very happy consumer. I am still doing it at their flagship store at Novena (address right at the bottom of this post!)
And yes, if you remember, i did a post for Shou before when i was on their #100daysofShou programme, its here if you’d like to check it out. This time, the programme is slightly different, it focuses on my arm, particularly the flabbiness of my arm, also known as the “Bye Bye fats” underneath that wobbles when you wave at someone. Super sad because i have lived with it for the bulk of my years till now.
I really dislike that bulk of fleshy fats and would often wear clothes which has sleeves or don on a jacket to hide them. So blog shopping and online shopping would mean i have very limited options 🙁 Really so thankful that Shou is helping with the firming, toning and muscle building aspect, which means i don’t have to actually do real exercise to get a toner arm (that’s super good news for me!).
First, i have to show you what it looks like at the beginning! I’m quite shy but i reckon that’s the only way it’s gonna make you guys see the difference and also for myself to keep track of my progress.
In these monthly pictures, you will be able to see the same dress because it will make it easier for you guys to “spot the difference” visually.
Here’s the one where i place Jan 2018 and July 2018 (6 months) together so you can see it more clearly. The arm is visibly firmer, toner and smaller, we also took the measurements for it. In Jan 2018, my arm was 32.3cm (left arm) and 32.1cm (right arm). Now, in July 2018, 28.1cm (left arm) and 28.5cm (right arm). Total loss is 4.2cm on the left arm, and 3.6cm on the right. We can see that it’s toner and looks smaller too, especially when in real life! 🙂
During treatment, electrical current is emitted through rubber contact pads that are positioned over targeted areas where the muscles tighten when they become aroused by electrical energy. I have done this throughout the six months and i got used to the electric currents as time went by and have since up a notch at the level of electric current! #proudmoment
Stimulation is not constant but turns on and off to imitate traditional exercise – prompts the muscle to passively exercise. Repeated electrical stimulation stimulates the body’s natural fat burning and toning process to give you a toned and firm body so every time you do this treatment, it could be an entirely different stimulation. Btw, this is not just suitable for the arm, other specific areas of concern on the body can be targeted.
The main benefits of Nano Shape Treatment include:
- Strengthen, tone and firm the abdominal muscles
- Tighten and tone the skin
- Improves circulation
Another treatment i did alot during this period has got to be the New Life.
- Increase blood circulation
- Body contouring
- Muscle firming
- Cellulite reduction
- Enhanced lymphatic drainage
- Metabolism accelerated
- Circumference reduction
Promo alert: The New Life Treatment is going at just $99 for first timers, remember to quote me and let them know your areas of concern so they can do a proper body analysis for you!
- Tighten skin
- Reduce the appearance of cellulite
- Circumference reduction
- Skin tightening and improve elasticity
- Firm lax skin
- Smooth unwanted fat
Occasionally, i also use the Thermal body wrap (more often known as the Hot Blanket) which activates the lymphatic system and improve drainage of body toxins and excess water retention. It also promote healthy circulations within areas of concerns, allowing the body to reshape and firm the skin to help achieve the benefits of inch loss and body sculpting.
Fat Freeze is a breakthrough, non-invasive way to gently and effectively reduce fat in targeted areas of the body. There are no needles, incisions, anaesthesia and recovery time. Initially, i was also quite worried because for the record, i’m super scared of pain and the unknown. Again, this is where the therapist come in, they are super patient, calm and assuring, they will describe the sensation and also explain the steps one by one patiently so you can be restful. Ask away if you aren’t not convinced or if you’ve doubts, they will only begin if you’re comfortable!
Treatment targets fat cells alone, eliminating them in an easy, non-intrusive fashion in which exercise and diet cannot achieve as quickly or as effectively. It is ideal for individuals with small pockets of fat, which are diet and exercise resistant.
Fat Freeze adopts advanced cooling technology, Cryolipolysis, which can noticeably eliminate fat without surgery. It selectively target fat bulges and eliminate fat cells through a gradual process that does not harm the surrounding tissues. When fat cells are exposed to precise cooling, they will be ‘frozen’. These ‘frozen’ fat cells will be degenerated and eventually undergone apoptosis – a process where the fat cells no longer function and are replaced by strands of collagen fibres instead. The fat cells in the treated area are gradually eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic processes. Treatment trigger a process of natural removal that gradually reduces the thickness of fat layer. There is little or no downtime – individuals can resume normal activities on the same day as the procedure, making it a good choice for those seeking a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
- Safe and clinically tested
- No pain, no incision and no anaesthesia during treatment
- No downtime after treatment
- Precise and targeted elimination of fats
After all the comparison i believe you can see the difference! Personally, i can feel the difference, especially when i wear my usual clothes, it’s not as tight as before, at the arm area. It’s definitely firmer and more toned. What i also value during my time at Shou is not only achieving my desired results, but also the friendship forged with the therapist thus far. Really want to give a big shout out and thanks to the lovely and caring team at Shou, thanks for taking such great care of me and giving me life advices / tips along the way, treating me more than just a customer. Yue Ting, Ice, Annie, Grace are a few of the ladies who took care of me at the Shou Novena outlet. So if you land any of them, you can definitely be assured great service.
Plus point is that the therapists at Shou are not super pushy on their sales, it’s very important to me because i certainly would want to enjoy my session and to have a good time rather than to be pressured by what packages or what i need to buy to get my desired results.
They will try their best to explain and share your body condition and recommend the different kinds of treatments that will be beneficial in the long run. But don’t worry, if you need more time or don’t wish to sign up for any, let them know. They will listen to your reasoning and not force it on you — if budget is your concern, they will also try to tweak the packages and vary the treatments to help you get your optimal package.
If you want to do something about your area of concern and have not yet done so because of budget contraints, doubts on the slimming centre, worries on the results and expectations, here’s your chance to visit them and have a consultation first. Before you decide on anything, have a talk with Shou and let them know you saw my posts so they can fully explain the different machines, it’s functions and whether it’s suitable for you.
Please also slide me a DM or drop me a message if you need to know more! I’ll be very happy to help with questions you might have 🙂
