Dorit Baxter opened a spa in mid town Manhattan after listening to her skin-care clients say how they longed to visit a spa for only two hours. Now they get slathered in a thick green paste made from Mediterranean seaweed, baked, cooled, cleansed and then zip back to the office in little more than an hour.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 12, 2005
Dorit BaxterÂs Bellyworks therapists at the New York Day Spa are now taking on one-on-one personal training sessions to teach effective tummy crunching and breathing techniques to tighten stomach muscles. The new ÂBellyworksÂ abdominal strengthening technique introduced at the spa (http://www.newyorkdayspa.com) flattens the stomach and promotes good health while improving posture and alleviating lower-back pain.
An hourÂs Bellyworks session includes an abdominal wrap: Muscle-compacting elastic bandages are soaked in a slimming substance and wrapped around the tummy to give a therapeutic treatment.
The Bellyworks therapist then gives an abdominal muscle massage with a creamy green-tea-and-kale mixture that tightens tummy muscles while firming skin and facilitating abdominal functioning. Belly Works is an ideal post pregnancy weight loss workout.
The Bellyworks session begins with breathing and contractions guided by the therapist to tone muscles, then the stomach is wrapped with a slimming solution and finally there is a bloat reducing massage. ÂA body wrap is good for detox treatments,Â says Yaffa Rabe, Spa Director and cosmetologist at Dorit Baxter Day Spa.
Clare Lambe from ÂTime Out, New YorkÂ says: ÂMy personal trainer-cum-therapist started gently enough, demonstrating a simple exercise which combined deep breathing with the rhythmic tightening and relaxing of tummy muscles; she then wrapped my unruly gut in heated, seaweed soaked elastic bandages. The quick succession of crunches and leg lifts that followed left me panting, but I could feel the kelp corset concentrating my efforts on my reluctant abs. Before I got dressed, my aching belly was rubbed with toning gel and a sharp-smelling juniper, pine and peppermint infused anti-cellulite oil. A week later, IÂve continued the torso clenching-exercises and my spare tire is definitely deflating.Â
Baxter, who created the treatment, explains, ÂYour flattening tummy receives flattering notice while deepened breathing brings peaceful feelings. You can strengthen your abs through the day with this easy technique.Â
