It's My Body and I'll Contour If I Want To

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting Unique Skin & Beauty Bar located in Virginia Beach, Virginia. This business specializes in: Facials, Buttock lift, Non-surgical Lipo, Cavitation, Radio Frequency, V-Steam, Detox Body Sauna, Electro-Stimulation and so much more. I was made aware of this business through my husband. He had completed some video work for the business owner and thought I may like to visit. My first thought was; “is he trying to tell me I need to tone my body”. Once I settle that score (lol), I told him to set up the appointment and that I would go. The day of the appointment arrived and I was super excited about it. I walked into the office and was greeted by a sweet, while calming aroma. The décor was beautiful and there was soft music playing in the background. I was greeted by Rahsha, the owner of Unique Skin & Beauty Bar. She was so pleasant and provided me with a questionnaire to complete before we began.

Once I completed the questionnaire, Rahsha led me to one of the private rooms. I would call the atmosphere majestic. Rahsha begin to go over the different services she offered and I opted to get the Unique Buttock Lift & Wood Therapy treatment after she told me the details of it. This service has the ability to do 4k to 5k squats for you within 45 minutes. The machine acts as a suction to pull the glute muscle up into the device for maximum treatment. This process assists with the lift of the glutes and enhances that area. Wood therapy helps redefine the body, contours, reduce cellulite and facilitate weight loss. These instruments allow highly targeted pressure to be applied, and that pressure intensifies the breakdown of fat and fibrous cellulite so that it can be eliminated naturally with other toxins. She had my heart at 4k to 5k squats.

I became apprehensive when the cups were applied; it was simply a fear of the unknown. The surface I laid on was warm and it vibrated beneath me. Rahsha dimmed the lights and it was peace and me for the next 45 minutes. I am not fortunate enough to experience this type of free time often so I used it to rest my mind. I thought about how happy I was to do this because I truly hate going to the gym and I would get the same results I would seek there anyway.

There are times when we, as women, beat ourselves up about not getting toned “the right way.” But who defines those standards? I asked Rahsha her thoughts on this because many women feel a sense of shame when receiving assistance to shape their bodies. This was her reply to people who feel guilty about body sculpting. “Every human that we encounter has something that they don't like regarding their own body. Once we accept that no one is perfect nor has a better body than the next woman, then we can move forward. Self-Care is everything and it's needed daily. Not too many of us understand the importance or take the time to take care of our own body’s needs. We are always taking care of others and not ourselves. Women have the ability to allow someone like me, to assist with their areas of concern. Once they allow themselves to come in for the first time, they will always return for their self-care maintenance.”

I strategically wore yoga pants to my appointment so that I could see my results as best as possible. I was thoroughly pleased. I felt fuller and I saw the lift immediately. I wished at the time I would have taken before and after pictures. But I have provided an after picture below:
