Get Skinny treatment at Talise Spa

The claim: The whole process is designed to stimulate circulation, encourage the removal of toxins that cause cellulite and leave your skin feeling ‘toned and lustrous’.

The experience: The treatment begins with dry body brushing, and though the bristles are coarse (this is the circulation-stimulating part) it’s not as harsh as you might expect. Next, a seaweed body mask is applied all over, before being left to work its magic while I enjoy a head massage. After a rinse under the shower, a contouring gel is massaged all over to firm and moisturise.

The results: Immediately after the treatment, my thighs feel firmer, and a quick look in the mirror the morning after helps dispel any scepticism. I’m still feeling the results up to a week later, and am convinced it’s the best treatment I’ve tried so far. My therapist, Wanpen, has also suggested a firming cream to help maintain the effects, and recommends I start doing some home body-brushing before getting in the shower to help prevent cellulite.
