family Motherhood

Merry Ho Ho Ho ~ We finally got a family picture

The holidays can be both exciting and overwhelming at the same time. Each year I get so excited to take the perfect family picture and the entire family just runs away to play in the snow or whip up some cookies in my perfectly curated outfits. This year was a little different! I caught them off guard at 7.30am and set everything up beforehand-)).

I know what your thinking, thats sooo smart. I gave them a quick breakfast of Eggo’s and fruit. I also told them a few white lies about how Santa is always watching. Unfortunately they are getting older and they are on to my every word. My 7 year old then advised me that is literally impossible because Santa is old and needs more rest these days (Boo Hoo) thats true! and then he said I say the same thing every year (Thats true too)

I got them perfectly lined up and wouldn’t you know I forgot my lense in another bag. I left them alone for 5 mins and a crazy fight broke out over Christmas lists and candy over the holidays. (This is the reason parents drink wine at night-))

We solved that issue and set up again! With 2 kids happy and 2 kids grumpy and a perfect timer we shot 40 photos with the hope that a few would be “The Christmas Photo” Here they are, you can tell me what you think?

Amongst all the chaos we wouldn’t change a thing. There is nothing like family and there is no place like home. We are completely blessed and this family picture will remain one of my favourites. There are many imperfections and that what makes things unique.

Lets make the holidays whatever we want them to be, lets invest in quality time and maximize on the memories. Life is short and we are trying our best each and everyday. You got this!!

 

Many Blessings

The Jodie and #jcrew

BTL Emsculpt – 20 000 Squats in 30 Minutes NO Problem!

BTL EMSCULPT® to Improve Shape and Tone Your Stomach and Buttocks

Let me start off by staying you WILL NOT have to do 20 000 squats or crunches -))

I went in the Ottawa Skin Clinic a few months ago to try and find a solution for my Abdomen and Butt. My main concern was muscle toning and fat loss on those two particular areas.  After having kids and working hard for years I was finally seeking some professional advice. You may of heard of the 2017/2018 surge of surgical procedures to shape and tone an hour glass figure. I am definitely not that daring and I was Ultimately thrilled to hear about the Non Invasive EMSCULPT technology.

 

Here is a brief summary: This is WAY too cool -))

bottom_quote

Using High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic (HIFEM) technology, EMSculpt induces supramaximal muscle contractions not achievable through exercise (or voluntary contractions). During normal voluntary muscle contractions the muscle fibers relax between each nervous stimulus. EMSculpt generates impulses at such a rapid frequency that it doesn’t allow such a relaxation phase. Supramaximal contractions cause an enhanced adrenaline release, which triggers an intensive lipolysis response in fat cells. When exposed to the supramaximal contractions, the muscle tissue is forced to adapt, responding with a deep remodeling of its inner structure that results in muscle building and fat burning.

 

Some Fun Facts :

On average, the following were achieved in clinical studies on healthy patients:

  • (1.5 inches) loss in waistline circumference
  • 16% increase in muscle mass
  • 11% reduction in abdominal muscle separation (called diastasis recti)
  • 5 x increase in fat metabolism (apoptotic index increased from 19% to 92% after treatment)
  • 80% patients with visible lifting effect of buttocks
  • 96% patient satisfaction
  • Here are a list of questions that I asked Dr Michon and his team of professionals.

FAQ’s

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR EMSCULPT?
This treatment is ideal for individuals with a low BMI who may not be eligible for other body contouring procedures. Emsculpt is very effective in eliminating small pockets of fat on individuals who are physically fit. This technology has the potential to provide beneficial muscle tightening in anyone. A complimentary consultation is the best way to find out if you are a candidate for this procedure.

HOW MUCH DOES THE EMSCULPT PROCEDURE COST? $750 per treatment

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PREPARE FOR EMSCULPT TREATMENT?
Prior to the treatment you are not required to do anything special.

WHAT IS THE DAY OF TREATMENT LIKE?
On the day of the treatment, you are advised to wear comfortable clothing which allows flexibility for correct positioning during the treatment. You will be asked to remove all jewelry and electronic devices.

HOW LONG DOES AN EMSCULPT TREATMENT SESSION TAKE?
EMSculpt treatment sessions typically takes 30 minutes.

HOW MANY EMSCULPT TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
To maximize efficacy, we recommend a series of four treatments with sessions separated by at least two days.

DOES EMSCULPT HURT?
The procedure itself is painless. No anesthetic is required. You sit back while two panels are used to apply the High Intensity Focused Electro-Magnetic energy. The sensation during the treatment is best compared to how your muscles feel during an intense workout.

EMSCULPT TREATMENT SUCCESS
Successful Emsculpt treatment outcome can be affected by smoking or excessive alcohol consumption, as well as: eating disorders or on-going medication. While no special diet is required, you are encouraged to eat healthy to help promote and maintain results.

HOW IS EMSCULPT TREATMENT RECOVERY?
There is no recovery period or downtime, and you can immediately resume your normal activities. The following day, you may experience muscle soreness similar to what you would feel after an intense workout.

IS THE EMSCULPT PROCEDURE SAFE?
Emsculpt is FDA-approved.

CAN I RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITIES AFTER MY TREATMENT?
Yes, you can. Mild soreness similar to that after a muscle workout is a normal and expected side effect from Emsculpt treatment. Often times, patients return to work after their Emsculpt session is over.

WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results from Emsculpt can be seen between 2 – 6 weeks from the first treatment. These results continue to improve over a six-month period. Emsculpt treatment can be continued past four sessions for even more noticeable results.

If you are interested in learning more about Emsculpt and if this treatment is right for you, give us a call at 202-628-8855 to schedule a consultation or click the link below.

After my consultation I decided to go ahead with the treatment at the Ottawa Skin Clinic.

-It is now 6 weeks after the treatments and the results are beyond my expectations. BOOK Your Consultaion Today
