Out of the or­di­nary

Think weight loss can’t be a re­lax­ing ac­tiv­ity? Well, HENA DE­SAI begs to dif­fer!

A re­lax­ing 90-minute mas­sage that prom­ises weight loss: sounds like some­thing out of a fic­tional novel, right? That’s what I thought too upon hear­ing about VLCC’s Jadui Potli Cure, that prom­ises this and a lot more. I knew I had to check it out for my­self. This ther­apy fol­lows thor­ough pro­cesses. As I stepped into the VLCC Cen­tre, I was first greeted by phys­io­ther­a­pist Dr. Dipika Chowkekar, who put me on the weigh­ing scale and pro­ceeded to cal­cu­late my BMI. Af­ter iden­ti­fy­ing ar­eas of con­cern, I was led to the cosy, dimly-lit ther­apy room by Head Trainer and my ther­a­pist for the day, San­toshi Anand Sile­lan. Be­fore be­gin­ning, she noted mea­sure­ments of my en­tire body. The Jadui Potli Cure guar­an­tees shap­ing the body and loss of inches as well, hence it was nec­es­sary to note my mea­sure­ments be­fore. Won­der­ing how it’s all go­ing to pan out, I lay down on the mas­sage ta­ble and waited for San­toshi to work her magic. The first part of the ther­apy com­prised of a deep tis­sue hot oil mas­sage which is done us­ing the mirac­u­lous potli— this is a muslin pouch that con­tains an Ayurvedic mix­ture of herbs such as ginger, me­thi, neem, gar­lic, etc that aid in detox­i­fy­ing the body. This potli is dipped in hot Ayurvedic oil and is mas­saged onto pres­sure points of the body firmly. The strokes are di­rected to­wars the lymph nodes, aid­ing in lym­phatic drainage that breaks down wa­ter re­ten­tion. The sec­ond part that fol­lows this is the clas­sic Lomi Lomi mas­sage. This com­prises of long, firm strokes on the body us­ing the fore­arms to re­lax the mus­cles and im­prove blood cir­cu­la­tion. It aids in re­leas­ing tox­ins from the body. To end the process ef­fec­tively, a liver com­pres­sion tech­nique is put to work— the stom­ach and ab­domen are scrubbed with a de­tox pow­der made of cin­na­mon, cof­fee, an­ta­mool, ginger, green tea pow­ders mixed with de­tox oil, wrapped in cling film and let to rest for ten min­utes. This stim­u­lates the liver en­zymes and com­pletes the de­tox process. Post a hot shower, my body mea­sure­ments were taken again and I headed for a chat with nu­tri­tion­ist Roma Bha­tia, who pre­scribed an ef­fec­tive meal plan to ad­dress my di­etary needs. With all-round at­ten­tion to phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity, diet and mas­sage ther­apy, a few sittings of the Jadui Potli Cure by VLCC can com­pletely and healthily trans­form your body. It works to break weight plateau, in­crease your me­tab­o­lism, re­duce wa­ter re­ten­tion, de­tox­ify the body and im­prove cir­cu­la­tion. All of this while re­lax­ing— not a bad deal, right?
