Bonus (for new mothers): Schöne Mama
When it comes to postpartum care, you’ll certainly think of Schöne Mama, a one-stop pre- and post-natal healthcare centre that uses a combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) methods and scientific approaches in its therapies.
Besides postpartum slimming treatments, the centre also offers breast care, intimate health care, and even constitution management to help mothers recuperate from head to toe.
Its latest treatment is the Mummy Trim (S3) that helps mothers with weight management. Using a machine that promotes collision and friction of fat cells so they could disintegrate, this treatment helps reduce visceral fats, blood lipids, and subcutaneous fats without affecting milk supply.
When our editor Kristen, who has just welcomed a newborn, visited the centre recently, she was given a comprehensive consultation so she could understand her postpartum condition better.
While she was interested to give the new Mummy Trim (S3) a go, the consultant said it was better to do it at a later time because she had just gone through a C-section and isn’t a suitable candidate for now.
The consultant noted that her metabolic rate is particularly low and recommended Physical Conditioning instead. This is a series of treatments that includes exclusive massage techniques to improve the qi, balance the body’s yin-yang, and strengthen the body’s resistance. She was also treated to a unique herbal steam bath that helped refresh and energise her.
Contact Schöne Mama to enquire about pricing.
