I recently attended a look and learn event with the Body by Bella Spa. There was much to learned about noninvasive body contouring and all the different treatments you can choose from to achieve your goal. I also learned about the Yoni “V” Steam but, we’ll get to that later. RF cavitation and Ultrasonic Cavitation Therapy are the most prominent of non-invasive med aesthetic body contouring treatments. RF cavitation treatments project infra-red energy which helps to tighten the skin of the area being treated. I really like the option of getting good results without surgery.
Ultrasonic Cavitation Therapy works with powerful sound waves, which are forced into fat cells. With both these treatments you may see immediate results but, it may vary based on your individual size. Some clients will lose 1-3 inches after one treatment. Most changes can happen over a period of time and may take up to twelve weeks to see the maximum result. Keep in mind the results arenâ€™t guaranteed and it depends on the client’s response to the treatment and area being treated.
I was able to have a Q&A with the owner Jackie Bell and discuss the effects of each procedure; if there is any down time involved or maintenance after the treatment. Both the Ultra-Sonic Cavitation & Lipo Light is very safe. Some clients may experience some redness to their skin which will go away in a short period of time. There is no downtime as people will sometimes visit during their lunch break and immediately head back to work after a treatment.
After you receive a treatment Jackie suggests monitoring your diet, eating healthy and sticking to your fitness routine if you have one. We all have busy lifestyles and sometimes we canâ€™t get to the gym all the time. Jackie recommends spending a few minutes on the HyperVibe. The HyperVibe is a whole body vibration machine that gives your whole body a workout in a few minutes while burning fat. If you stay on it for 10-15 minutes, thatâ€™s the equivalent to an hour workout. Available at Body by Bella Spa!
Now for the Tea! We also learned about the Yoni â€œVâ€ Steam which I had no clue existed up until maybe 24-48 hours before the event. I had to go to good ole Google to see exactly what this Yoni â€œVâ€ steam was. It turns out itâ€™s a vaginal steaming practice where women allow the warmth of herbal steam to infuse the exterior of her vagina. Itâ€™s along the lines of a facial or nasal steaming except itâ€™s for your nether parts. So, in case youâ€™re not totally clear on this, the â€œVâ€ is for vagina!
Okay, now that weâ€™ve gotten that out the way letâ€™s get a little more awkward because I had a chance to experience the Yoni â€œVâ€ steam and after I got over the initial oh my gosh factorâ€¦ I was okay! There are benefits for getting a Yoni â€œVâ€ steam treatment. I was intrigued when I found out it can reduce uterine fibroids and regulate irregular or absent menstrual cycles. I was diagnosed with uterine fibroids in 2015 and itâ€™s been somewhat terrifying ever since.
Body by Bella only uses Organic, Free Trade, Kosher Herbs. They are certified to offer the Yoni â€œVâ€ steam treatment in a variety of blends. I chose the Gentle Blend for its benefits. You also have cleansing, calming and disinfecting herbal blends that offer a variety of benefits. Overall, the steam works by applying moist heat to the pelvic bowl. It carries healing medicinal oils to the exterior tissues of your â€œvâ€ spot systemically throughout the entire body via the bloodstream.
What Happens? Well your body will try to relax while youâ€™re getting the Yoni â€œVâ€ Steam on the pelvic bowl and you will tense up as a natural reaction. Long story short youâ€™ll probably be experiencing involuntary Kegels until you are completely relaxed and comfortable. It will take you a moment to adjust. Afterwards you feel totally refreshed and renewed. You can schedule a 30 or 60 minute vaginal steam session. Itâ€™s also very affordable and wonâ€™t break the bank.
