The city environment can be a rather unforgiving place. Everyday, poor city dwellers like us take in pollution, toxins, crowding and noise while commuting around the city and shoulder anxieties caused by deadlines and targets from work. Being constantly immersed in such stressful environment takes its toll on both our skin and health. To counteract the negative effects of modern, hectic city lifestyle, Rexults medSpa is well-poised to be your “perfect antidote” with its advanced aesthetics and bodyworks treatments. I am thrilled to be one of the selected bloggers to experience their pampering & rejuvenating treatments.
Rexults MedSpa’s Founder Mrs Elizabeth Wong holds 20 years of experience in the industry, armed with expertise in the latest treatment modalities. Since the spa’s inception, Mrs Wong has travelled extensively to Europe and U.S. for research purposes to keep abreast of latest scientific breakthroughs in ingredients and equipment; the culmination of which has resulted in a stellar line-up of aesthetics treatments and bodyworks that employ a synergy of science, technology and luxury. To wash away the fatigue from my recent travel and get into the ‘relax’ mode, I was invited to take a comforting warm shower at the ‘Refresh Area’ and got dressed into a comfortable robe before we started any treatment.
Feeling all refreshed after the shower, my consultant guided me through a walkway that’s beautifully adorned with oil paintings depicting the lovely European countryside. As explained by my consultant, the introduction of alternative treatment techniques into the spa experience has been derived from renowned “Medical Spas” in Europe. Rexults medSpa has harnessed the healing traditions of the past and combined the High Tech (use of medical grade equipment) and High Touch (unmatched skill and expertise of the therapists’ hands) for all its customers. It is this authenticity that has effectively differentiates Rexults medSpa from the other players in the market. Of course, these European imageries also subconsciously tricked my mind into thinking that I am far away from the stressful city life in Singapore.
Here at Rexults medSpa, aesthetics and wellness diagnostics are reconciled with holistic approaches. By harnessing the healing traditions of the past to enhance the specially designed programs at Rexults, the treatments are designed to improve the well-being of each client. My consultant invited me to take a seat in the private consultation room to run through my past medical history, existing health conditions and understand my personal wellness goals before customising an exclusive program to improve my skin health and general well-being. She explained that it is the assurance of results and the customer-centric culture that keeps clients returning.
Kneipp Ritual Therapy
To satisfy my goal of detoxification and peace of mind, I am enrolled for the medSpa’s Kneipp Ritual. Not to be mistaken as the usual sauna we have in our gyms, the Kneipp Ritual involves an infrared sauna that is excellent for detoxification, weight loss, skin rejuvenation, relaxation and even post workout muscle recovery!
Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. While it is not possible to see this band of light with the naked eye, we can feel its presence in the form of heat. Far infrared is very safe to use and experts generally agree that there are no side effects. Health professionals have used red infrared heat lamps for decades to treat muscle and joint problems. In hospital baby care units, incubators are often equipped with infrared heating systems to keep new-born babies warm.
The treatment is done in a sauna with cedar wood interior and hemlock exterior. Cedar has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, and is extremely durable, which makes it the perfect wood for the interior of a far infrared sauna. Hemlock on the other hand is non-allergenic and has no aroma. The exquisite combination of these 2 wood materials creates the perfect treatment environment for medSpa’s customers.
For newbies like me, the consultant recommended a treatment period of 30 minutes. I opted for detoxification which involves a good sweat out. Other than the selection of treatment, the sauna also employs the use of Colour Therapy LED to help balance my flow of ‘energy’ throughout the body. Different colours have different effects on our emotions, thoughts and behaviour and when used correctly, colour therapy can have a significant impact on your body. I get to choose a colour that resonates well with me and a music track for the perfect relaxation. That’s an unflattering photo of me getting all ready to start!
As promised, I generated much perspiration. I was told that the sauna generates perspiration that is seven times more detoxifying than our usual traditional sauna. After a quick shower, my body felt at ease. Taking a quick rest at the ‘Retreat Area’, I felt significantly lighter, less tensed and calmer than when I first stepped into the medSpa. Months of accumulated toxics seem to have vanished from my body and it made me feel extremely relaxed!
If detox is not your cup of tea, here are the other treatments that are available through the same sauna:
– Weight Loss: Studies have shown a 30-minute infrared sauna session can burn up to 600 calories.
– Heart Health: The Solocarbon® heaters have been clinically shown to reduce both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
– Pain Relief: Researchers have found therapeutic benefits for back, neck, and arthritic pain from continuous use of infrared heat therapy.
– Skin Rejuvenation: The skin’s appearance improves as pores open from the deeper sweat induced by the infrared heat therapy.
– Cell Health / Immunity: Stay healthy with the natural preventive properties of exclusive LED near-infrared heating technology, which aids in cell health, muscle recovery and overall immunity defense.
30 minutes of The Kneipp Ritual is priced at $125 (inclusive of GST).
Having cleansed my body of toxins, my therapist turned her attention to my face. She explained that regardless of age group, chronological signs of ageing can cause people of all ages to struggle with skin conditions such as acne, sensitivity, dry skin, wrinkles, redness and sun damage.
At Rexults medSpa, they take into account the Rexults Skin Classification system to objectively determine the severity of photo-ageing and especially wrinkles. The system helps Rexults medSpa Client Care Managers to select the best therapies for their customers’ skin condition.
Rexults medSpa offers three categories of face therapies.
1. Essentials: Facial treatment specifically developed to address harmful urban toils on one’s skin and health.
2. Para-medical Face Therapies: No fuss, no frills, results driven care for your skin health. The treatment involves using State-of-the-art technology, well-designed techniques and protocols to Correct, Refine and Nourish one’s skin.
3. Bespoke: Anti-ageing face therapies that are custom-designed to produce effective and visible results.
I was recommended to undergo the Bespoke 90 Minutes Treatment. This is an ideal treatment to repair and restore tired, lacklustre skin for glamour events such as company Dinner & Dance by bringing back tone and luminosity. Similar to The Kneipp Ritual, I also got to choose the colour of the LED lights in my room for the therapy. The medSpa has a total of 9 treatment rooms for face therapies.
The therapy activates deep infusion of the therapeutic-grade mask and serums to provide a great reparative fix for any skin. The ‘High Touch’ deeply relaxing face massage combines the High Tech to give the absolute face therapy experience. The entire session was so pampering that I fell asleep within minutes! I hope I did not snore….
To complete the holistic spa experience, I was introduced to synergistic quality oils and specially blended teas from Rexults Apothecary at the café and retail area of Rexults medSpa. While sipping tea, I was also able to browse through their retail area for suitable Epiderma skincare products. I love the smooth, tone texture and the radiant glow on my skin! My Bespoke 90 Minutes Facial Therapy was priced at $300 (inclusive of GST).
While the ‘High Tech’ & ‘High Touch’ may be easily replicated by other spas, I am particularly impressed by the professionalism, service skills and etiquette exhibited by the Client Care Managers and therapists. I was offered exceptional attention and care consistently throughout the entire session. I would strongly encourage my friends and readers to try out their service and experience the transformation into a healthier you.
