SINGAPORE - If you ever wanted to lose weight, tried different diets and slimming programmes, you know that it is not an easy task. That's why I became really curious when I first heard about London Weight Management.

The Singapore-based slimming centre promises fast and long lasting effects, and the whole process seems to be enjoyable and hassle-free. It doesn't even require much effort from your side... Too good to be true? 

When omy.sg contacted me last week to say that London Weight Management selected me to become their spokesperson for a day, I was both thrilled and sceptical at the same time. I was looking forward to spending a couple of hours at their stylish centre at Tiong Bahru Plaza, however I wasn't sure what I could expect...

The day started quite early, at 8am. After meeting Sherie, a local blogger, who was also invited to take part in the trial session, we got introduced to our consultants and to the filming crew. They explained all details of the project and told us more about the company and the slimming session that we were going to undertake.

So let me quickly explain what the whole treatment is about. Basically, it consists of three main steps that are carefully timed to achieve the best results:

1. Aroma Steam Bath (15-20min)
2. Lavender Sea Salt Scrub (5-7min) & Hot Blanket (30min)
3. EMS machine (30min)

After the health consultation where you are also asked about your diet and eating habits, you get change into a pretty burgundy bathrobe in order to be weighed and measured. Then it's time for the first part of the treatment, the Aroma Steam Bath, which - I must say - is really relaxing. The purpose of the hot steam is to open your pores and increase blood circulation. 


Waiting for the second step of the treatment


After that comes Lavender Sea Salt Scrub which makes you feel like being in a spa, not a slimming centre. The product they use has a really great smell and it is applied mainly to your "problem areas" such as upper arms, belly and thighs. This part of the treatment reduces water retention and removes dead skin cells to give way to more radiant skin.

After the scrub is finished, you get wrapped in a hot blanket and lie down for 30 minutes. And then before proceeding to the next, third step, you are asked to take a shower.


Electrical Muscle Stimulation and body measurement afterwards


The last part of the treatment, Electrical Muscle Stimulation, helps to build lean muscle mass and quicken the body’s weight loss process. It is used together with a thermo ampoule that softens the body fat.

After the session is over, you are measured once again to assess your results. You also get a chocolate flavoured drink that helps to increase metabolism, burn fat and maintain a long term effect. And it also tastes good :)

When I was asked during the interview what my favourite part of the session was, I couldn't decide between the aroma bath and the muscle stimulation which felt like a relaxing massage. I was really surprised that the whole slimming treatment was not only a lot of fun, but also brought quick and measurable results. I lost 0.5 kg in just one session!

The whole experience was very enjoyable and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a slimming treatment. I felt lighter, happier and more relaxed.

The London Weight Management centre is nicely decorated in bright energetic red (my favourite colour) and the consultants wear very fashionable black uniforms. I was impressed by their experience, product knowledge and friendly attitude. Highly recommended!
