Detoxifying the Urban Lifestyle, A True Wellness Move

Shares

Our mission at Welify is to “Redefine Wellness”. Changing the mindset of an industry only happens by working with the best that on their turn are true Wellness Leaders. And you are not going to become a true Wellness Leader without a significant focus on consumer’s wellbeing, overall health and longevity. What follows in this article is a case study from a unique concept called “Urban Detox” that incorporated the LPG lymphatic drainage programs to their very ownFight For Natural Beauty“.

Wellness Client: Niche Natural Healthcare, Urban Detox Cafe

What we really love about this project: Niche Natural Healthcare is the first naturopathic healthcare centre in Asia. Under the guidance of Dr. Nichamon Samantarat, Niche Natural Health Clinic is initiating a brand-new way to tackle all the negative influences the urban lifestyle has on our health.

How LPG is helping to spread the love: The Urban Detox program exist out of 4 treatment programs where LPG is taking care of the lymphatic drainage. LPG is the only device in the world that offers lymphatic drainage treatments and at Niche Natural Health Clinic they know exactly how to use it!

The whole story: Niche Natural Health Clinic has adopted LPG endermologie® and made it part of their unique Urban Detox program. This program is developed by Dr. Nichamon Samantarat and Dr. Somboon Roongphornchai, designed as the first all-natural solution countering our toxic hectic lifestyles here in Bangkok. Together with Niche Natural Health Clinic we are launching several initiatives promoting the Urban Detox program and sending out Dr. Nicha’s catchy message that “you’re not fat, you’re toxic”. The Urban Detox program is the perfect, all-natural solution to the clean and healthy lifestyle all patients and consumers deserve.

Invented by Dr. Nichamon Samantarat herself, the first US-trained & licensed naturopathic doctor in Thailand and Dr. Somboon Roongphornchai, the leading anti-aging & sports medicine physician, the program focuses on 4 essential areas of the body which are our cellular, lymphatic, internal (metabolic) and gut systems. LPG endermologie® is put to work as the key player to take care of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system helps eliminate our body’s waste. A healthy, active lymphatic system uses the natural movements of smooth muscle tissue to do this. There is no device in the world that can achieve this goal beyond manual massage which has it’s limitations.

We use LPG Endermologie® because it is all natural, nonaggressive and noninvasive, which is completely cooperative with the naturopathic way of detoxifying your body.

– Dr. Nichamon Samantarat –

Our Conclusion: Being part of the Urban Detox project is definitely one of our favorite LPG projects in Thailand. Long term wellness and health can only be achieved by changing people’s lifestyle, making them realise that we need to make time in our lives for our bodies to recover from our hectic toxic lifestyle. With the “Fight For Natural Beauty” by LPG and the “You’re not fat, you’re toxic” slogan from Urban Detox we probably have the best solution available to date.

What did we do so far: The Urban Detox is a beautiful program all by itself. So together with Niche Natural Healthcare, we supported by putting the story into a video, showing how the Urban Detox program is a smart and effective way to clean your body. Check out the video here.

On 17th June, an exclusive launch event was held at Niche Natural Healthcare Complex where our LPG experts joined to demonstrate LPG endermologie® and to share the knowledge behind it. Check how that turned out.

Jérôme Bottois the endermologie expert from LPG France visited Bangkok!

Before heading into the New Year, LPG Thailand welcomed Jérôme Bottois to the Welify office. Jérôme is one of the leading trainers from LPG. He travels around the world training doctors, therapists and business owners on how to get the most out of the endermologie techniques. Jérôme has a Master’s Degree in Health Care Management and worked as a physical therapist in rehabilitation centres (orthopedic, traumatology, neurology, multi-disabled) for 13 years. He is now leading 2 global endermologie training centers and managing 13 LPG trainers. We asked him some questions…

Let’s get started…

Jérôme, can you say something more about LPG?

LPG is a French company, created 31 years ago by Louis Paul Guattay. So that’s why we have the name LPG. All our techniques are based on the natural stimulation of the potential within the human body. And our objective is for people to live longer lives with better health.

Why should a clinic owner invest in endermologie and LPG?

LPG techniques are natural, safe, and non-invasive – they activate natural processes in the body.

For example, to achieve flawless looking skin, we use specific techniques designed to help the body’s fibroblast to wake up and produce more collagen, elastin fibers, and hyaluronic acid. There are no injections in the LPG treatment protocols.

Another example is in slimming fatty areas. In these cases the therapist will focus on activating the adipocyte, causing the release of fat and volume, which results in the observed slimming effect.

So in beauty applications we are fighting tissue symptoms like loose skin or fatty areas on the face and body, or excess cellulite in parts of the body.

In medical applications we are focusing on tissue symptoms such as inflammation, pain, muscle tension, fibroses, and edema. We can fight these 5 different symptoms each in a natural way with LPG.

Why should people go for a natural method instead of a more invasive way?

At this time people are coming to understand how important it is to use the human body’s own natural potential. This is reflected in the desire of people to adopt a more natural way of eating and exercising. In a way we can think of LPG as being like gymnastics for your skin: just as you do exercise for your body, you also need exercise for your skin. Take fibroblast for example: after we turn 20 and we begin to age the tissue becomes “lazy”. So you need to stimulate the fibroblast to wake it up and get it producing collagen, elastin fibers, hyaluronic acid again to bring back the skin’s youthful quality and to maintain it.

The fact that LPG techniques are natural means that it can also be combined with any other technique. That’s a huge advantage for clinic owners because it offers a chance to up-sell existing customers.

And what exactly are the techniques that LPG can be combined with?

Well for example LPG can be combined with injections such as Botox, or with many types of surgery, including lifting procedures.

The benefit of using LPG theraphies as a supplementary treatment for a patient undergoing Botox is that LPG increases skin perfusion and stimulates the skin that ley over muscles paralyzed by the Botox. It is a very good combination.

Can you tell us a bit more about the upcoming LPG VIP event in Phuket?

The event in Phuket is a big event for LPG and our family of LPG distributors, because distributors are going to be able to bring their key clients. The objective is to introduce distributor key-accounts to the latest LPG techniques. Of course there will be many demo sessions, but there will also be presentations explaining technical concepts and reviewing the medical proof that underpins the LPG system. These session will be conducted by cosire which is the medical committee inside LPG.

There will be doctors explaining the effects of the LPG techniques that they have observed in practice and sharing some case examples covering LPG and adipocytes fibroblast, and surgery.

So this event in Phuket will be very interesting for all the LPG stakeholders.

Thanks a lot Jeroom! Goodbye for now and don’t forget…

Slim Concept just launched the latest technology from France!

Shares

On Wednesday 30 August 2017, both floors of the beauty zone in Central Ladphrao were showered in silence. There was a very good reason for that, because one place was creating all the excitement and the noise being at the center of all the attention. Slim Concept and Mirza Clinic organised one of their well-known activity days full of great new product launches and VVIP member promotions for all their precious VVIP clients.

All day long the invited guests were warmly welcomed by the entire Slim Concept team led by owners Mirza and Alex. Over 100 clients came to spend a couple hours at the center. The center piece of the day was the launch of endermologie®, a technique from France that uses mechanical stimulation of the cells to reactivate their awakening naturally and painlessly. In contrast to a lot of the techniques available on the market, LPG® endermologie offers a 100% natural alternative to fight all unaesthetic manifestations like wrinkles, sagging skin, localised resistant fat, cellulite appearance, and more.

Miss Sarah Gieghase the Sales Director of LPG Thailand was at the event to personally demonstrate the device to all visitors. Listen to what she has to say about the event.

I often do events and they are all wonderful and joyful to be with. At Slim concept I noticed a different approach that was absolutely amazing. I have never seen so many talented people taking care and serving the clients well. The amount of energy makes you crave for more and all in the most professional way. They know what they are doing and if you would like visit this place I promise, you will not regret it! – Sarah Gieghase –

Celebrity Boy Pakorn as the special guest at Slim Concept.

And if you think that after a day full of activities the fun was over, you are wrong. Thailand’s leading male celebrity Boy Pakorn made an appearance to support his very good friends from Slim Concept. He treated the guests on a short surprise concert before presenting more on what Slim Concept and Mirza Clinic really stands for. Afterwards also he got a demonstration on the latest endermologie® techniques and it’s amazing benefits.

If you would like to try out the only 100% natural solution to fight many of the anti-ageing and aesthetic issues in a soothing and painless way, I would strongly advice you to book a session or a package at Slim Concept in Central Ladphrao. You will not regret it!

Davines and Comfort Zone – the first skincare B Corps brands!

Shares

Parma, 1 December 2016 – Davines S.p.A., Italian group dedicated to the professional cosmetic industry with headquarters in Parma, has announced today to have obtained the B Corporation certification, becoming part of the global network of companies that have redefined their business to make it a source of positive impact for the people and the planet.

The company, founded in 1983 by the Bollati family, is today an international business dedicated to the professional haircare industry with the Davines brand, and to the skincare industry with the Comfort Zone brand.   In addition to the headquarters in Parma, it has branches in London, Paris, New York, Mexico City, Hong Kong and Deventer (Holland) and its distribution reaches more than 90 countries. Both brands are specialised in the creation of high quality products manufactured with an artisan spirit and developed scientifically through cutting-edge cosmetic technologies, and where sustainability and care for people are key values for their business.

Since the year 2000 the Italian company has been aiming to combine the success of its business with a positive impact not only on the environment, but also on the community of stakeholders with whom it has relations made up of employees, suppliers and customers.  This vocation for sustainability is rooted in the company’s history, it has shaped its identity and its daily activity through a systemic approach. Over the years, this vision has been implemented through projects that guide the Group in the creation of products and services. Since 2015 the Company’s Sustainability Report is an annual report that describes all the sustainable activities carried out, the results achieved during the year and the goals set by the Company for the following year.

The willingness of the Davines Group to become a B Corp is consistent with the company’s effort to pursue with method, objectiveness and consistency a business model focused on a “prosperous longevity” where the values expressed by it gradually come to life. “We were relieved to find out that there is a movement of companies that draws inspiration from the same principles we believe in. This makes us optimistic on the possibility that business becomes a tool beneficial for the wellbeing of the society and not the other way round.” – Paolo Braguzzi, CEO of the Davines S.p.A. Group.

With this certification the Davines Group joins the group of so-called B Corps, whose purpose, in addition to profit, is maximizing their positive impact by providing innovative solutions to environmental and social issues whilst respecting the highest standards of performance, transparency and accountability. The Italian companies that are interested in joining the B Corp movement are assessed by the B Lab certifying body that is in charge of measuring the company’s degree of social and environmental performance in five areas: governance, people, community, environment and customers. Reaching the score requested for certification, ranging from 80 to a maximum of 200, normally requires deep structural changes, even for companies like the Davines Group that have already been investing in sustainable development for years.

With a score of 99, the entire Group, including its branches, ends 2016 with the achievement of this certification thanks to the positive results in the following areas:

  • sustainable life cycle assessment (SLCA) based on their environmental and social impact,
  • reduction of materials regarding the primary, secondary and tertiary packaging with a progressive decrease of its environmental impact and a more responsible product design,
  • reduction of waste with a resulting increase of the share of recycled materials,
  • involvement of all suppliers in the certification process and great attention to the wellbeing of company staff.

This goal is for Davines and Comfort Zone a starting point for a long and steep journey where a lot has already been done, yet the second part of the journey still has to be covered. The certification arrives at the time of another important confirmation for the Group, i.e. a turnover in excess of 100 million euro, which is further evidence of the growth trend that has characterised the company for more than twenty years.

I believe that wanting to make the best of all possible worlds means putting oneself in the fame without reservations. For this reason I’m happy for the B Corp certification, a confirmation of the commitment and our will to continue on the path of sustainability. It’s really a beautiful moment for Davines and our community. – Davide Bollati, Davines Group President –

The truth is hard to accept, but ignorance even harder! #FightForNaturalBeauty

Tell me, what is not to love about the new campaign video from LPG expressing their ongoing 30 year long fight for natural beauty? Even though my opinion here is a bit biased, I would never committed myself to become the ASEAN representative for LPG if I would not share the same values and believes, fighting for the same cause.

Too often am I confronted with doctors (not all) and their empty claims on willing to do good for their patients and clients. But if you look to what they offer as services you will find “menus” full of botox, fillers, lasers and more of the quick and short term solutions, which is exactly the opposite of that.

The new LPG campaign is a true slap in the face for the “know it alls”. Try to argue with a dermatologist about the long term impact these invasive techniques can have for the patient. They would laugh it away, knowing very well inside that injecting chemicals under the skin, freezing fat cells away or burning the skin on a weekly basis is nefast for your long term health. On top of that it goes against everything they were taught during their extended educations.

I understand, where there is a market demand to be filled there is money to be made. But I think it’s time that the medical aesthetic industry takes an example to all the upcoming B-Corporations that prove that changing how companies think about how to use resources, doing good for the world while still making profits is a practice that can easily be replicated in our industry. Just start by offering an alternative, educate your patients and let them decide! Make a difference for your patients by providing them a sustainable AND effective long term beauty solution.

Enjoy the new campaign, if you get it, you will love it!
