Many of you have joined us hoping that we are able to kickstart your weight loss. After review with a number of experts, we are glad to introduce our special Fat Blast package that will definitely help you along on the path to good health. We believe in a holistic management towards our health and as most of you would know, weight loss is 70% diet and 30% exercise.
Working together with Bibi Chia, head dietitian at Compass Medical group, our Fat Blast package, priced at $1200, consist of 3 sessions with Bibi, 5 private and 5 group Pilates sessions. Bibi will customise a diet plan specifically for your needs as well as educate and guide you about nutrition and the interpretation of food labels. As for the exercise bit, the private sessions will allow us to identify your weak and under utilised muscle groups and educate you on how to use them correctly, after which you will then join the Fat Blast group classes which will be faster paced and more cardiovascular.
We are also able to tailor make packages for those who require a little more or less. Speak to us for more information.

Back Pain and Pilates Talk
Pilates is often recommended as treatment for back pain. Together with PhysioAsia, we will be conducting a talk on the pathogenesis of back pain and different treatment modalities. There will also be a demonstration, with the Realtime ultrasound and Achievo Core Stability trainer, on how Pilates can help back pain.
PhysioAsia has researched and came up with SCORES, a core stabilization programme for back pain, which involves activating the deep lumbar and abdominal muscles. The use of Realtime ultrasound and Achievo Core Stability trainer, which is unique to SCORES, is highly effective in recruiting activation of these muscles. This breakthrough approach allows the therapist as well as the patient to see the actual muscles in action and is used as an assessment and training tool to activate the muscles correctly and enables one to learn the correct pattern of muscle action in relation to other muscles.
Suitable for both medical, allied health practitioners and the general public, this is a great talk for those who work with back pain patients as well as for individuals who suffer from back pain themselves.
We are still finalising the details for the talk but it is tentatively to be held on end October at Novena Specialist Centre (right across the road from us). We will share more details when we have them but do look out for it!
