Get your body summer ready

The positive mental effect that the Universal Contour Body Wrap brings can be truly amazing and uplifting, and it's most definitely one of my favourite treatments.

This isn't a water loss treatment or a temporary fix. By sticking to the aftercare instructions e.g., a healthy diet and lifestyle, the Universal Contour Wrap treatments provide confidence, positivity and motivation, helping you to feel and look your best. It is a great overall detox for the body as it really speeds up the blood and lymph flow which helps to flush out all the toxins in the body especially the cellulite in the thighs.

The results to be expected are instant and lasting, such as inch-loss, detoxification and cellulite reduction.
The Elite Body Wrap is an advanced treatment with dead sea clay fortified with minerals. You'll be wrapped in up to 28 bandages and our completely unique Chrysalis machine uses specific lifting and tightening wrapping procedures. We offer the added benefits of muscle toning, cellulite reduction or enhanced inch loss. It's absolutely relaxing and rejuvenating.

Using electrical leads under the bandages, it'll be applied to your stubborn areas - usually thighs and tummy.

Shaping: For modelling and sculpting the thighs. It can be combined with the cellulite programme.
Toning: An intensive programme for toning abdominal muscles and thighs.
Cellulite: Reduces cellulite in the most critical areas by increasing localised circulation and cell exchange.

HOW IT WORKS

The combination of our classic clay solution and specialist body wrapping techniques draw out toxins whilst compressing the soft fatty tissues to create instant inch loss and firming effect and the electrical leads to stimulate the circulation. This is three different processes in one for ultimate results, giving you an overall feeling of well-being. Also, you are placed into a heated blanket that cocoons the entire body helping you to sweat out the toxins, giving you deeper relaxation. The wrap was originally designed by a doctor to help his patients speed up inch loss but they saw much better results - more than just inch loss.

The instant heat relaxes the body and quickly opens the skin’s pores, allowing the clay solution to draw out the toxins more rapidly and boost the blood flow. The effects allow for more oxygenation of tissues and lymphatic exchange, increasing the detoxification process.
As the process is underway the electrical muscle stimulation contracts muscle tissue to help break down cellulite and tone the skin.

I was sitting in the dining room looking out at the garden through sheets of rain, when something caught my eye; a dead plant.

I shifted my focus, looked around me, and observed quite a few plants close to the point of no return! Indoor plants are easy to forget about, especially when the weather is fine. It is hard to believe but several spider plants, an orchid and a Saintpaulia ended up on a certain compost heap this week.

Houseplants do not need a huge amount of care during the summer months, but there are a few things we must not forget! For example, the most obvious is watering. This is the main growing season for houseplants, so watering is essential as is adding some fertiliser. I use specific feeds for my plants, as the balance of nutrients needed can vary hugely depending on the type. As you can imagine, a large, leafy plant will have different requirements to, say, a cactus, or a gerbera. Most plants prefer to dry out slightly between watering, though not as much as I had let them dry out.

Most indoor plants prefer to be out of full sun as they scorch easily. In particular, leafy plants are susceptible to this. Cacti and succulents are ideal for south facing windows during the summer months. Move any leafy plants to a spot away from south facing windows where they can enjoy a more stable temperature and a slightly shaded light.

Often when plants are under stress, both indoors or outdoors, they become prone to disease, a bit like ourselves. For example, plants which dry out frequently are a prime target for whitefly. They often go unnoticed until there is an infestation, at which point you will see woolly cocoon like clusters, as well as clouds of tiny white flies. Blackfly and greenfly are also common pests indoors. The best course of action, after prevention, is to spray the plant at regular intervals with a pesticide. As it is indoors, I would strongly recommend the use of organic spray, or even soapy water. Alternatively, use a pesticide which can be watered onto the soil, such as ‘bugclear ultra’, as this will have a systemic effect.

This time of year is also suitable for repotting your houseplants, if not done in spring, as they will still get a few months of benefit and strong growth. I mix my own compost as I generally have quite a few to repot. I mix four parts good quality compost, one part sharp sand, one part perlite and one part vermiculite by volume. When repotting cacti and succulents I reduce the compost to two parts, and when repotting orchids, I substitute the vermiculite and perlite with two parts fine bark mulch. I never use homemade compost, as I find there are a lot of insects and ‘other creatures’ in it which is fine used outdoors, but I don’t want to invite too much wildlife inside! It is possible to sterilise homemade compost by steaming it, but this is quite an operation, one which I have never undertaken. Alternatively, there are specialist composts available for every type of houseplant. When repotting, use a pot which is about two sizes bigger, unless the plant is a very vigorous one.
