It always takes me a while to lose baby weight, and I find that the last stone is usually the very hardest to shift. So to begin my treatment I undergo a diagnostic evaluation of my lifestyle and habits, focusing on what can be done to help me shift those last pounds. They also assessed which areas I was most concerned about (stomach, hips and thighs), and came up with a bespoke package designed to tackle those ‘problem’ areas. This was followed by a thorough but relaxing scrub with Gazelli Illuminating Perfecting Skin Polish.

On my second visit I am given a heavenly sculpting massage with ultrasound and infrared therapy to prepare my body for acupuncture with their resident doctor of oriental medicine. As an acupuncture virgin I was a little nervous, but I needn’t have been. It was a gentle mediative treatment that lasted 30 minutes, during which I was given specific instructions on how to aid my sluggish digestion and up my energy levels.

Next I was given a combined radio frequency and vacuum suction treatment designed to shrink fat cells and encourage cell renewal. This sounds terrifying, but is actually extremely gentle, more like a warm heat and suction sensation. In fact I fell asleep, despite being on the second highest settings on the machine. This was followed with a final bout of body brushing and acupuncture on my final visit. 

Verdict: My abs and thighs definitely feel less dimply and wobbly than they did two weeks ago. I am more conscious of what, and how quickly, I eat. My energy levels have improved and I feel more relaxed generally. Gazelli House haven’t waved a magic wand and made 6kg melt away, but they did give it a damn good go. I would really recommend this to kick off or restart a weight-loss programme or before a big event such as a wedding when you need an extra body confidence boost.
