Relief your sore muscles at The Pain Relief Practice!

image00017

Sitting in an office chair for 8 hours a day (minimally), 5 times a week has left my shoulders and neck aching and crying for help. Not to forget the heavy handbag that I lug everywhere which causes extra strain to my shoulders and neck.

I’m sure many of you working friends feel the same! It’s a common first world problem that sometimes a normal massage can’t fix.

If you’re an athlete or you’re more senior in age, you might face even more body aches and would probably be desperate for a solution.

Well, this is where The Pain Relief Practice comes in.


The Pain Relief Practice is a physiotherapy clinic in Singapore, specializing in the treatment of complex pain.

Employing a unique 3-step clinical approach, The Pain Relief Practice helps you live a life free from pain. Combining advanced tissue repair technologies, hands-on physiotherapy and natural nutraceuticals, the trained professionals provide an all-encompassing approach to address your pain.

Firstly, they spoke to me to better understand the pain I was experiencing as well as my lifestyle.

Then, they checked my posture and identified tense muscle areas.

(Yes I think my head is too heavy for my neck so it hurts pretty often)

Finally, I get changed into a robe to try out the Radiofrequency therapy that I will be sharing more about below. This was also coupled with manual therapy to relieve my pain and contribute to my overall wellness.

Pain Relief Practice’s Advanced Tissue repair Services: 

It is important that we mention “Advanced Tissue” because your regular massages are are usually only capable of targeting surface level sores and aches. At the Pain Relief Practice, they go deep. (*winks)

  1. Radiofrequency Therapy (the one I personally tried)

image00010

(The machine that worked wonders on my muscles)

A non-invasive treatment that uses radio-frequency energy to help activate cell metabolism – restoring it’s natural balance, increasing vascularisation and the internal temperature of the targeted tissues. As a result, it can reduce inflammation/pain, and facilitate faster tissue repair.

As an externally applied treatment, it is extremely comfortable and there is no down time, allowing immediate return to work and normal daily activities. It’s the perfect lunch time treatment!

Radiofrequency Therapy is also supported by multiple medical studies proving effective results, gaining popularity with top level athletes and patients with difficult pain problems.

An effective solution for :

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Backache, neck pain
  • Sprains, fractures, muscle damage
  • Tendonitis and bursitis

2. Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave Therapy is a safe, non-invasive treatment for people suffering from joint and muscle conditions. Shockwave Therapy uses powerful acoustic energy to stimulate deep tissue repair. It is applied directly to the site of injury through the client’s skin via a gel medium, creating a series of intense physical energy waves. This acoustic energy wave breaks down dysfunctional tissue and stimulates a healing process.

Clinical studies have shown extremely high success rates, even in cases that have failed to respond to conventional approaches. This treatment is set apart from traditional therapies by treating the underlying condition instead of offering only symptomatic relief.

Shockwave therapy has been scientifically proven to help with:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Achilles Tendonitis
  • Knee Pain
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Muscle Trigger Points
  • Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis)

3. Spinal Decompression (Traction)

Spinal Decompression Therapy is a non-surgical treatment that has an amazingly high success rate for neck and back pain. It is designed to unload the spinal disc to provide very effective relief of pain and numbness in the back, neck, legs, and arms. These conditions can be caused by herniated, protruding, bulging or degenerative discs, spinal stenosis, sciatica and radiculopathy (pinched nerves). By cycling through distraction and relaxation phases and by proper positioning, we can achieve faster pain reduction and exceptional healing at the injured site.

Help Floral Garage Singapore to save shelter dogs!

Calling all dog lovers! If you’ve always got a soft spot for flowers and dogs, join me in doing our part to support shelter dogs. Flower Garage Singapore has collaborated with OSCAS, an animal welfare shelter in Singapore to launch Doggy2 ($49.90). Part of the proceeds from this product will be donated to OSCAS to help support their shelter dogs.

Oasis Second Chance Animal Shelter (OSCAS) is a charity and non-profit dog shelter that has been in existence since 2006. All the dogs in the shelter are mongrels rescued from the streets or from being culled.

A total of more than 110 mongrels currently call this shelter home and needless to say, it can only be sustained with help from trusty volunteers and kind donations or sponsorships.

Look at those puppy eyes! They are definitely calling out to me. This is the perfect gift for a dog lover!

Do note that the flowers used in each arrangement may be slightly different. As you can see, I received one with pink roses but the pictures on their website used a mix of orange and yellow roses. Nonetheless, both look equally pretty and cheery.

Help these shelter dogs and give them a second chance! Lend a hand, save a paw :’)

Thank you Floral Garage Singapore for sending this flower arrangement over!

Little Flower Hut: NEW Vase Flower Arrangements

little flower hut

Hey everyone, I’m finally back to writing on this space! Had to take a break for a while as I finally *gasp* graduated and landed my first job! It hasn’t been easy, trying to assimilate and learn the ropes along the way but I’m glad to finally be productive and contribute to a larger cause. Hopefully through my work, I can make lotsa of tourists happy and help them to better enjoy Singapore as a tourist destination!

Since I’ve started working, I’ve developed a new love for plants. It can get really stressful at the workplace and I believe that having desk plants would perk me up a ‘lil. Looking at the green parts also offer a much-needed respite for my eyes.

Therefore, I was delighted to know that Little Flower Hut was pushing out new vase flower arrangements! Absolutely love that they incorporated succulents, anyone else thinks succulents are so cute and fat and adorbz???

I gifted it to my mom cause it was her birthday week! I think as much as ladies say that flowers are so unpractical and a waste of money, no one can deny the happiness that it brings when looking at fresh blooms and greens.

w Mom (LFH)

Would like to make special mention to their Birthday Cake Flower arrangements (which literally look like cakes) and their Happy Hour Flowers that are arranged in martini glasses for your alcoholic friend! Really innovative ways to arrange flowers and it will definitely be a pleasant surprise for your recipient.

Send love with Little Flower Hut today!

Not only do they offer 24/7 customer service, Little Flower Hut even throws in FREE same day flower delivery as long as you order before 4pm! If you’re looking for a bargain, check out their weekly picks for $50 nett. They do have a few designs below $50 as well so that you can show your love without breaking the bank!

To date, Little Flower Hut has served over 5,000 customers and their deliveries are 99% on time so you can definitely trust them.

Have fun flower shopping and have a great weekend ahead!

Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar @ Clarke Quay

With 4 blocks of food and nightlife entertainment, Clarke Quay is definitely Singapore’s most happening spot. Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar is the new kid on Block A. Although there is a wide variety of dining options located in Clarke Quay, the bosses of Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar noticed that no one was serving up some addictive Sichuan-style skewers to feed hungry, drunk souls after their night of partying. Therefore, Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar was born. Not only can you expect a wide array of barbecued meat prepared with Sichuan spices, feast on a soul-comforting bowl of lamian as well.

Beef Noodles in Beef Broth ($ )

Really liked that the broth was flavourful but not too oily.

The texture of the noodles were just nice too.

An assortment of skewers – beef, pork, chicken, mutton

Mega love for the ones served with garlic!

For all skewers, you can choose between the spicy or non-spicy option. I’m not good at eating spicy food but I enjoyed the Sichuan spices on top because the spice level was just nice for me.

Warning! These skewers are highly addictive and a match made in heaven when you pair them with a beer. Many patrons from neighbouring bars and restaurants even order in and bring over the skewers from Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar to enjoy at the bar of their choice. So don’t fret if you can’t get a seat at Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar, because they understand that seating capacity is rather limited.

You’d notice that all your skewers will be placed on this grill box which serves to keep your skewers warm. Sadly tho, it is not a charcoal grill. It just uses the flames of 3 small tealight candles.

Mid-joint chicken wings 

Perennial favourite – can’t go wrong with chicken wings.

Scallops

There’s 2 options available on the menu, with and without shell.

Eggplant 

For all eggplant lovers, you’d definitely enjoy this dish.


Chuan Grill & Noodle Bar

Next time you walk by, do pop in and I assure you won’t regret!

Pigmentation Treatment with Pico Laser at Clifford Aesthetics!

glow

If you’re one of those who find freckles really cute, think again. If you’ve been a religious reader of my blog, you’d know that I’m constantly talking about lasers and finding ways to reduce or lighten pigmentation. I believe it is a strong Asian trend to want to achieve clear, smooth, radiant skin and this is definitely not possible with large brown spots on your face! In this article, I’d talk about how the Picocare 450 laser can help you reach your dream skin.

Yes, freckles like all other skin pigmentation can spread and grow.  Skin pigmentation happens when the skin produces an excessive amount of melanin. Melanin is created as a protection on skin cells to shield the skin from sun and UV-rays. Age spots, sun spots, spots and melasma can show up on the face, hands and arms if skin is not properly taken care of.

UV-damage is the biggest culprit of pigmentation. The UVA and UVB beams are the key reason for untimely maturing of the skin and can cause hyperpigmentation as well as sun spots. The degree of UV damage depends on a person’s skin shading and the extent of the sun exposure. Sunscreen is therefore super important and a must-do before leaving the home, especially when Singapore is bright and sunny all year round!

For those who already have unwanted pigmentation that you’d like to treat, I’d like to introduce you to the Picocare 450 Laser Treatment at Clifford Aesthetics.

The Picocare 450 laser has many uses. It is now most commonly used for Pigmentation Removal, Tattoo Removal, Pores, Fine Lines, Wrinkles and Acne scars. Melesma which is an extremely common form of pigmentation can now finally be removed and controlled with this Pico Laser treatment. The Pico laser is able to break up the pigments in your skin more effectively, lightening the affected area in the process. Picocare 450 laser with HEXA MLA handpiece can also help to lift depressed acne scars and help to minimise enlarged pores on and around nose area.

What is the difference between Picocare 450 laser and normal laser?

As I have tried other lasers before, I thought it was important to share the difference between the Picocare 450 laser and other types of normal skin lasers.

(Lasers use a solitary wavelength to deliver the vitality to skin targets. Picocare 450 lasers can distribute energy in prodigiously short bursts (within several billionths of a second). The speedier the laser is, the more proficient it is. A quick laser has a shorter span between laser beats, which means it gives more laser beats each second. The shorter burst of energy circulated by the laser disrupts the pigment-containing cells within the skin, resulting in fading and clearing of the affected area. The energy conveyed by the Pico laser can also rebuild skin collagen and improve its surface.)

If you found this hard to understand and very cheem, basically it just means that the Picocare 450 laser is able to give quicker bursts, with more laser beats per second; thereby helping to break down and clear out pigment-containing cells, making it more effective than other lasers. In the process, you also get an extra bonus: your skin collagen is rebuilt and skin surface is improved!

HOW DOES THE PICOCARE 450 LASER WORK?

As mentioned, the Picocare laser can perform many different functions. It is able to get rid of pigmentation and help reduce acne scars, rough textures and pores at the same time. Scars are removed using the Picocare laser through the use of very fine laser beams that penetrate below the skin causing tiny bubbles to form using micro-explosions.

The lasers can penetrate far beneath the surface of the skin to dissipate the melanin that causes hyper pigmentation. The laser separates dull spots into smaller particles which are beneath the skin. Gradually, darker spots and dull spots on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs will fade away.
The bubbles formed when laser is performed will fill up with collagen during the recovery and an “elevated” effect will help to raise depressed scars from acne.

In conventional subcision techniques used to treat acne scars, the doctor would insert a needle below scars to manually raise it up. However, the Pico Laser has a Bubble Lift technology that replaces these old approaches completely, causing less discomfort and minimal injury, while achieving the same (if not better) effects.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS OF PICOCARE 450 LASER?

Picocare 450 laser is a comfortable and painless procedure with the use of topical numbing cream. During the process, it is normal to feel a slight stinging sensation but no pain no gain yeah? You may also notice that the treated area will turn red for a few hours after the treatment but will definitely go away in one day.

Lesser side effects are seen after Picocare 450 laser, compared to other laser treatments. Patients normally experience minimal downtime after treatment. This treatment also requires lesser sessions, making it a faster and efficient choice for laser treatment.

Personal Review

To be frank, the results I have achieved thus far is a combined result of 4 sessions of the Q-Switch Laser and 2 sessions of the Picocare 450 laser. Therefore, it is not realistic to expect all your pigmentation to go away in just one session. Depending on your condition, Dr Gerard Ee will be able to advise the number of sessions you need to go through before you can achieve your desired skin. Even after these 6 sessions, I am still continuing on my journey to get pigmentation-free skin!

Rest assured that pain is minimal, you don’t even need numbing cream. Or at least, I never did apply numbing cream for my sessions. However, if you are super afraid of pain, you may request for it.

YOTEL Singapore

YOTEL bed

Last month, I finally checked out YOTEL Singapore and I was pleasantly surprised by my experience there! Definitely one of the better staycations I’ve been to, I love how YOTEL is aeroplane/spaceship themed. Not only does it mean futuristic vibes, expect space efficiency like their reclining beds! Although the cabin may look small at first, the high ceilings make up for it so that you don’t feel claustrophobic. And of course, there’s that gorgeous city view that you can look out at while you’re showering.

Here’s a closer look at the Premium Queen View Cabin!

YOTEL - Queen with View Cabin

Notice how the bottom of the bed has a gap large enough for your luggage.

The bed is YOTEL’s Signature SmartBed™ with Serta cool action gel memory foam mattress (sounds cheem) but just know that it is SUPER comfortable and perfect for watching shows on the 40″ tv and sleeping (of course).

As you can see, you can shower whilst looking out towards the city! Definitely a new and interesting experience. I was on one of the highest floors so I wasn’t really worried that anyone would see me.

YOTEL

YOTEL provides quality shower amenities by Urban Skincare so you don’t have to fret about using your own! Some hotels provide really low quality ones that make your hair dry as grass, but I assure you that you will experience no such thing at YOTEL.

Other great things about the cabin include

  • Free super-fast WiFi and free calls within Singapore (perfect for business travellers and for contacting loved ones back home)
  • Hairdryer, iron and ironing board
  • Technowall with mood lighting (If you scroll back up, you’d notice those purple lights along the bed)
  • Electronic laptop safe
  • 63 channels to watch the latest movies, premium TV shows and the best sports action in full HD

There are many other hidden secret compartments in the room that I’d leave you guys to find, no fun if I spill all the beans yeah?

Let’s go for a tour in the rest of the hotel!

YOTEL - Lobby

This is the lobby, otherwise referred to as Mission Control. All the desktops you see on the left, allow hotel guests to do self check in and check out. This really reduces your waiting time as you do not need to see a counter staff (unless you’re facing some issues). The standard check-in time is any time after 2pm and check-out is any time before 12pm.

YOTEL - Robots

Almost definitely my favourite feature of the hotel, YOTEL has their own robots, Yoshi and Yolanda! If you want them to visit you at your room and see them in action, simply call Mission Control and ask the robots to send up an extra towel or other amenities.

Yolanda sings while she’s leaving your room, super cute for a IG video! The kids love them too.

YOTEL - Pool

Find some time to chill beside the pool or go for a swim!

YOTEL - Pool Dusk

I swear it looks even prettier at night.

Grains & Hops - Entrance

The pool is located just beside Grains and Hops, YOTEL’s restaurant and bar. Breakfast is served here too!

YOTEL - Breakfast Setup Close Up

As YOTEL is located right in the heart of the city, along Orchard Road; there are plenty of food options down the street. However, if you’re looking to eat in YOTEL, try the Angus Beef at Grains and Hops.

Grains & Hops - Roasted Angus Beef

For the adrenaline junkies and hardcore gym fanatics, YOTEL also has a smashing gym! You’d find the gym opposite the restaurant.

The wall decor is great for a post-workout photo too!

YOTEL - Gym Angle

Basic but sufficient to keep your body pumped up.


 

Well that’s the end of my tour for you!

If you’re really enticed and wanna book a YOTEL stay for yourself, stay 3 nights or more and enjoy 15% off!

As they always say, the early bird catches the worm. Book early and enjoy attractive discounts too.

Sign up as a member and enjoy exclusive perks! The membership is free, with instantaneous benefits.

  • Unlock an extra 15% off your room bookings with YOTEL membership, available on no other booking sites.
  • Complimentary high speed WiFi
  • Free local calls
  • 20% discount at Grains & Hops
  • Best rate promise

I can’t wait to be back already!

Show Your Love With Floral Garage!

Floral Garage

Flowers – do we really need a special occasion before we can gift them?

Although often deemed as a waste of money by those who are more “realistic”, it is no doubt that they put a smile on the receiver’s face. Blooms never fail to brighten up someone’s day and can effortlessly transform a space. From dull to full of life, from boring to artistic.

I love how flowers are used to show how much the sender is thinking about you. The sender spent that money, just to see the smile on your face. And I think that moment, that thought, that love, is priceless.

Although fresh flowers will probably always be popular, I am really welcoming the trend of dried flowers or preserved flowers because they can last for a much longer time! This makes dried / preserved flowers not only ideal for decorating spaces, they can also be used and reused constantly as photography props (hehehe). The Enchanted Rose is a preserved red rose in a jar, resembling the one in Beauty and the Beast! It can last for up to 1 year and if kept in its casing, up to 10 years; making your every penny worth!

Other specialities include the veggie bouquet (https://floralgaragesg.com/product/delightful-vegetables/) that can be eaten later (perf for the practical mummy), as well as one of the lowest priced freestyle bouquets at $34.90 only! (https://floralgaragesg.com/product/r00-freestyle-bouquet/).

Get your flowers from Floral Garage today!

Although there are many florists in Singapore to choose from, it is important to purchase from a florist that is reliable, provides great customer service and maintains high quality in their floral products.

I’m sure that many of you are aware of florist boo-boos whereby Valentine’s Day was messed up due to late deliveries, or mix-ups in the orders. Here’s the article by Mothership, summarizing that unfortunate event.

Entrust Floral Garage’s dedicated and talented team that will provide efficient flowers delivery service! You may contact them for same day floral delivery and urgent bouquets as well.

They even offer floral subscription services, allowing you to pre-plan your orders within the next few months. This can be done on a regular schedule (eg. once a week, once a month) or based on occasions (like anniversaries and birthdays). Never forget a special date again! Floral Garage even calls you one week beforehand as a reminder of the special day and also to check if you’d like any changes to be made. Feel free to customize your bouquet to add that personal touch. A 3 month subscription plan would cost $200, with free delivery on the first order. You’d also receive credits which can be used to offset future purchases.

More than just flowers

Floral Garage also sells party supplies like banners and buntings, helium balloons, party ware and more, making them a one-stop solution for all your party needs.

Check out their flower gift baskets and hampers as well! You’d be happy to know that there is free delivery for all hamper purchases.

They also sell a range of soft toys and terrariums. Terrariums are minimalistic and space-efficient, allowing you to decorate your room or desk without taking up too much room. Terrariums are also really easy to care for, making them ideal for the busy Singaporean in you.

Giving back to society

Last but not least, what I like the most about Floral Garage is that they make it a point to give back to society. Their most recent give-back was held on International Womens’ Day (8 March) where they held a non-profit floral arrangement workshop for low-income women and mummies.

Over the years, Floral Garage has also raised funds for animal shelters and donated materials for flag days.

It is always nice to support a socially-conscious brand, especially local ones! #supportlocal

With this I say, show them you love them with Floral Garage.

Achieve the perfect body with Shiro Aesthetics and Venus Legacy

Shiro

I am no stranger to the Venus Legacy and I’ve reviewed it in 2016 here. Was already impressed by what in can do back then and my stance remains unchanged!

The Venus Legacy treatment provides a non-surgical alternative for skin tightening and body contouring, including cellulite, wrinkle and circumferential reductions. It is the first of its kind to harness a 4D technology, which combines:

(1) Multi-Polar RF – this enables painless and speedy homogenous heating that reaches multiple tissue depths.

(2) Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields – a technology that has established itself in decades worth of traditional medicine for its regenerative benefits.

(3) Vari-Pulse – this feature allows for flexible pulsed suction used in the treatment’s deep energy penetration, lymphatic drainage and stimulating circulation.

(4) RealTime Thermal Feedback – incorporating a hands-free thermometer and an on-screen visual feedback graph, this feature allows for constant tissue contact.

Together, they enable the Venus Legacy to effectively perform safe and reliable treatments that generate instantaneous results.

This time, I handed my body to Shiro Aesthetics, located at the heart of town at Mandarin Gallery. Shiro Aesthetics is a medi-spa, located just beside Shiro Aesthetic Clinic. This makes it super convenient for you to pop by the Shiro Aesthetic Clinic and consult Medical Director Dr Zhang Yijun, who’s probably the most candid, funny and personable doctor I’ve ever met. Dr Zhang can provide consultations for your skin with regards to botox and fillers; as well as for weight management and body contouring.

Dr Zhang posseses a medical degree and post graduate Family Medicine qualification at the National University of Singapore. He obtained his postgraduate Diploima in Practical Dermatology at Cardiff University in the United Kingdom. If you’d like to stalk him, visit his Instagram @offdutydr. You’re welcome (;

Awkz

After saying hi to Doctor Zhang, I popped over to Shiro Aesthetics, the medi-spa to try out the Venus Legacy treatment. I chose to target my tummy area which has a ugly bulge that I’ve been wanting to get rid of for a long time.

The female beautician at Shiro Aesthetics explained that the Venus Legacy treatment is completely painless and basically involves running the machine over the targeted area for 30 mins. It just feels a bit hot and repeatedly vibrates over the area.

<Inserting my ugly before photo here> Notice my tummy bulge.

You’d be provided with a tube to change into, preventing your clothes from getting wet.

The Glide helps the applicator to glide smoothly over the targeted area during the treatment process (get it? hahahah)

Throughout the process, all you feel is a warm sensation on the targeted area. If it gets too hot, let the beautician know and she will reduce the temperature.

But no pain, no gain right? Tahan the heat until you really can’t take it.

Here’s how the machine looks like.

You’re done in about 30 mins! However, I advise you to come either before you eat lunch or like mid-afternoon, after your lunch is digested.

After the session, your tummy will look red like a lobster (as seen in the above pic). This is a good sign as it means that there’s blood circulation and the Venus Legacy is working its magic on your body!

Another benefit of the Venus Legacy is that it reduces bloating and tummy gas.

You’re also advised to drink more water after the session as your body loses water in the process.


SO, does it really work?

Here is my chance to include a super sexy photo of me!!

TADAHHHH. So you see, Venus Legacy works wonders!!!

Hahahaha but say real though, here’s a picture of me 1 day after my first session.

Feels like I’m sharing my baby bump photo but #ShiroAesthetics #VenusLegacy #notpregnant

You can still see that I have a slight bulge, but the therapist said that it’ll take a few sessions. I’m not really worried though, that’s how much I trust the Venus Legacy.
