Light Papaya Soup

“It’s one of the best soups for health & diet watchers. Also great for all ages!”

All the ingredients used in this soup recipe were truly nutritious. Packed with high content of nutrients, and they were delicious to taste, too.

Some nutritional facts:
Papaya, a fruit that contains not only high amount of antioxidant, but also an enzyme (papain) which helps digest protein. Snow fungus, nourishes your lungs and skin. Black-eyed beans as a kind of legumes. I did not need to highlight the rest of the familiar ingredients. Best thing, this super delicious soup was so flavourful with its natural sweetness from the papaya, we don’t need much of the seasoning here. A pinch of salt would be the limit to it. More

Lemon Vinegar Juice


“Lemon. Vinegar for slimming, for health?”

After one month of consumption of banana vinegar, I decided to switch I having lemon vinegar. Wasn’t sure which is more effective on loosing weight, but I knew they serve slightly different slimming purposes.

As banana vinegar helps more on blocking carbs by having the banana on site, the lemon vinegar helps in preventing constipation problem. Both help in slimming, in a way. More

Apple Salmon Soup

“A soup with natural sweetness that your child would not reject.”

This soup is more for your toddler, but of course, you may cook this for yourself and the other adults, too, if you do not mind sweet tasting soup for lunch.

Healthy, balanced, natural sweetness, yet, flavorsome. Children would be able to finish whole big bowl of soup including the fish and apples as well as other ingredients in it. More

Banana Vinegar (香蕉醋)

“Good sharing on dieting ideas”

Talking about dieting…. The vinegar dieting is back on demand! Heating up again gradually…. I am one of the followers on this diet. One of my dieting methods, now.

I don’t think there are much scientific proof, besides having concrete findings that vinegar helps in body cleansing and detoxification (or similar effect). However, it does not equal to sure-successful weight lose effect. Only many (too many) hear-say that it helps a lot in slimming down, especially after the testimonial from one of the Japanese celebrity who lost 8kg in a month, many years ago. This vinegar diet has, then, become so popular and believing. More

Overnight Oat Porridge

“Many reasons to start eating healthy oat meal porridge”

It has been in trend to make overnight oat meal for breakfast in the female community, but I have more reasons to start having it on daily basis. I needed this healthy low-fat meal to kick start my dieting plan.

However, as many would agree, not many would eat oat porridge regularly. So many people, including myself, were having this impression that oat meal is for the weak or aging folks…. but but, let me tell you now, it’s not true! More

Contour Sculpt Body System By Marie France Bodyline

=&0=& Infused with Marie France’s signature potent plant and mineral blend, the compression of MF Contour Sculpt Body Wrap helps rid your body of impurities and fatty acids through the process of lymphatic drainage. It also helps to stimulate existing collagen and elastin fibers, enhance collagen secretions, and improve skin’s elasticity over time. Benefits of Contour Sculpt Body System:
  • Visible reduction and improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
  • Detoxification – designed to help cleanse the body of toxins and interstitial fluids trapped between small spaces of fat tissues.
  • Hydrate and improve texture and appearance of skin.
  • Helps activate the lymphatic system thereby promoting detoxification and a boost to the metabolism.
  • Promotes synthesis of collagen resulting in firmer and tightened skin tone
  • Brightens skin and protects against discoloration and uneven skin tone.
Active Ingredients Our Signature Proprietary Blend Actives includes:   Cupana Seed Extract (Paullina Cupana) Its high caffeine content and stimulating properties make Paullinia cupana particularly effective in weight-loss programs as it helps increase the metabolic rate and improves thermogenesis. Studies have shown that Paullinia cupana positively affects lipid metabolism, enhances weight loss, and increases basal energy expenditure. Aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) The soothing, mucilage-rich gel from Aloe barbadensis is obtained from the inner filet of its fresh leaves. Aloe gel contains polysaccharides and glycoproteins – active compounds that together reduce inflammation, stimulate cell proliferation and promote skin repair.   Centella asictica Centella beneficial effects on the venous system help in strengthening the capillaries and veins and in so doing assists with better blood circulation. With its effect on connective tissue great value is achieved with the synthesis of collagen, thickening of the skin (a great anti-aging property – as we age our skins become thinner), increasing the tensile strength of the flesh, wound healing and repair of damaged tissue.   Equisetum arvense (Horsetail) The horsetail constitutes one of the most diuretic species in all the plants. It possesses a great capacity to eliminate water from the body; in such a point to increase urination up to 30% more than what is habitual. Equisetum arvense effectively helps to reduce weight due to the action of several components, which includes equisetonin, potassium, calcium, magnesium, ascorbic acid and caffeic acid. As a diuretic it is particularly suited to metabolic or hormonal oedema during the menopause. The diuretic action is thought to be due partly to the flavonoids and saponins.   Arctium lappa root extract (Burdock root) Arctium Lappa Root Extract is an aqueous extract of the fresh roots of the Burdock plant. One of the benefits attributed to burdock root is its ability to cleanse the body. It offers a stimulating effect on the excretory systems, helping them rid the body of toxins.   Palmaria Palmata Extract (Red Algae/ Dulse) Dulse extract has been clinically proven to possess free radical scavenging activity, making dulse useful as an antioxidant. The seaweed has also been demonstrated to inhibit the growth of lipid (fat) cells. It also inhibits melanin synthesis, limits melanosome transportation and UV-induced pigmentation to brighten skin complexion.    Laminaria Digitata (Atlantic Kelp) Laminaria is used mainly in treatments against cellulite and obesity, either alone or combined with other extracts to enhance its activity.   The mineral salts and especially iodine stimulate the general metabolism and cause an increase in the osmotic exchanges thus bringing about elimination of the excess fluids. This phenomenon is made use of in the treatment of cellulite and obesity, hence the use of Laminaria extracts in our wrap preparations.   Rosa Damascena (Damask Rose Oil)  The Bulgarian Rose is a plant that’s packed with therapeutic benefits. It is a wonderful anti-inflammatory agent and tissue regenerator. High in antioxidants, it offers amazing properties of hydration to the skin and eases conditions brought on by stress, for example, insomnia and tension.   =&10=& Note: Clients will be unwrapped after 25 minutes if entire treatment is administered within our salon.
