Get Swim Suit Ready with Holistic Health Tips & Non-Invasive Laser Treatments

Does the thought of swim suit season make you shudder? If you are like most people, you may have some weight gain left over from the holidays and skin damage from the bright southern California sun. But not to worry. By making a few holistic health changes to your inner body and using non-invasive laser treatments for your outer body, you’ll be bathing suit ready for this summer.


Start with a Positive Attitude

Your success in achieving a bathing suit body starts with a positive attitude. A good way to start each day is with a holistic healing health practice such as meditation. We also recommend you keep a daily journal to track your challenges and successes.

Choose a Holistic Diet that Works for You

Whether you have just a few pounds to shed or need to lose more, choose a weight loss program that keeps you motivated. Eating healthy foods that are high in antioxidants is especially important. They reduce inflammation and keep you healthy on the inside. They also help slow down the aging process on the outside.

At the Holistic Healing Heart Center, we offer a safe and structured rapid weight loss program. It includes weekly one-on-one health coaching, nutrition and lifestyle education, recipes, and food products. And, it does not contain any pharmaceutical drugs, such as stimulants or appetite suppressants.

Stick to a Consistent Exercise Program

Whatever exercise you do, consistency is key to maintaining and sustaining your weight loss goals. Choose an exercise that you enjoy. Make it part of your daily routine. One of the easiest ways to get exercise is by speed walking. Studies show that women who did three shorter, fast-paced walks a week (plus two longer, moderate-paced ones) lost 5 times more belly fat than those who simply strolled at a moderate speed 5 days a week.

Work with a Holistic Health Coach

Having a health coach is a great way to put your goals into action. It also helps you sustain healthy behaviors. You can choose an individual coach or participate in a group. It’s best if your health coach is in your holistic health doctor’s office. Together, they can help you achieve your goals. Your coach will meet with you every week and help you identify obstacles, provide emotional support, and guide you in the right direction.


Congratulations! You’ve made great progress and now fit into your bathing suit. But you look in the mirror and see that sun exposure, aging, and other factors have had an impact on your skin. Yikes! What now? Here are some simple, non-surgical laser treatments to help you get the look you want on the outside.

Laser for Skin Rejuvenation and Removing Unwanted Hair, Spider Veins, and Rosacea

With many FDA-approved laser technologies on the market, removing unwanted hair, scars and wrinkles, and other skin imperfections, including sun damage has become a lot easier. The procedures are quick and painless. Many holistic health doctors now offer these services to their patients. They employ professional aestheticians to work with patients. This takes the guess work out of finding a reputable aesthetic medical spa and keeps all of your health care in one place.

Cellulite Laser Treatment

Reducing the appearance of cellulite from your belly, buttocks, and thighs, and tightening and firming the skin can now be done at the same time. A new FDA-approved treatment, called PelleFirm, is one of the best laser treatments for cellulite removal. It uses radio frequency energy waves to penetrate the skin and break down fat and cellulite. Unlike many other medical aesthetic cosmetic procedures, PelleFirm is painless. In fact, most patients find it relaxing, likening it to a hot stone massage. The procedure takes between 30 minutes and an hour, depending on the size of the area treated.

Body Contouring for Non-Surgical Fat Removal

Stubborn fat in the belly, thighs, and love handles can now be easily and safely melted away. SculpSure, a new FDA-approved body contouring procedure is gaining wide recognition as one of the best fat removal procedures without surgery. It uses a controlled light-based laser technology to remove unwanted fat deposits (liposculpture). The laser beam penetrates the skin’s surface to kill fat cells underneath. This simple office procedure takes only about 25 minutes. And, multiple areas can be treated at the same time. It is virtually painless and there’s no downtime. You can immediately return to your daily activities, and even go to the gym, following treatment.

Now you have the all the holistic health tips you need to help you be ready for bathing suit season, inside and out. You’ll hit the beach with confidence, feeling your best and looking your best. To learn more, contact Dr. Cynthia at the Holistic Healing Heart Center at 818-842-1410.
