This month’s new treatments promise to successfully sculpt, slim and relax the body

Zemits GioStim

Zemits GioStim high-intensity electromagnetic (HI-EMT) muscle and body-sculpting device uses a specific range of frequencies that does not allow muscle relaxation between two consecutive stimuli, meaning muscles are forced into tetanic contraction –a condition that triggers changes in the muscles as an adapting response. This reaction works to increase muscle mass and cause apoptosis in the fat cells, which are excreted by the body’s normal metabolism within a few weeks.

The non-invasive device offers six sports modes, and treatments can be performed with no downtime and minimal to no discomfort. The recommended treatment package would include four-to-six sessions in total – two per week – with the full programme completed within three-to-four weeks. The time between the treatments cannot exceed 48 hours.

Zemits recommends charging from £90 per 30-minute session. 020 8644 6377 /

Lemi Aemotio Spa Lemilemi Massage

The latest treatment from Lemi is the brand’s third collaboration with spa consultant Jean-Guy de Gabriac. Following the success of the first two signature massages – Ocean Dream and Sand Tide, which launched in 2019 – this third treatment uses an existing piece of equipment, the Aemotio Spa.

A play on the traditional Hawaiian lomilomi, the Lemilemi Massage features enveloping movements, which can either be gentle or more intense, using the forearms or knuckles to relax the muscles.

Performed on the Aemotio’s heated water mattress, these movements give the sensation of floating on the surface of the sea.

By using a combination of the bed and a hands-on approach, beauty therapists can massage both the upper and lower part of the client’s body, allowing the customer to enjoy a back massage while remaining face up. The circular movements, use of scented oils, the vichy shower attachment, and the warmth and rocking of the water mattress all work together to create a multisensory experience for the client. It’s the perfect combination of relaxation and therapy.

Pure Swiss Aesthetics Slimyonik Air

The Slimyonik Air Bodystyler machine is inspired by lymphology expert Dr Vodder and his work around manual lymph drainage. It offers eight programmes and 11 algorithms, to perform different massage motions on the body.

Each treatment combines tailored pressure-therapy massage with the inhalation of air enriched with oxygen, to gently activate the lymph system, boost metabolism and immunity, and increase the flow of blood to skin and fatty tissue.

Treatments can be tailored to the client’s needs and goals using a single programme such as “slimming and cellulite massage” or “lymph massage”, or combining programmes for “pre and post fat-loss treatments” with “post-workout/sport”.

The device uses 24 air pressure chambers to stimulate lymph system drainage, while oxygen-enriched air inhalation causes “hypoxia”, a process where stimulated tissue is starved of oxygen, briefly helping it take in and store more oxygen to improve metabolism and burn extra fat.

Pure Swiss Aesthetics recommends charging £75 for a 30–45-minute session. 01621 828384 /

Tried and tested... Comfort Zone Sublime Skin Facial

The lowdown: The spa brand has relaunched its popular anti-ageing Sublime Skin line with revamped formulations that work to target the deep-seated causes of ageing at a cellular level. To celebrate, it has unveiled a new exfoliating, results-driven facial to showcase what the updated collection can do.

The experience: I experienced the treatment at Cloud Twelve spa in London with Comfort Zone national trainer Sarah Parsonage. I was excited because the Sublime Skin line now uses Archi-Lift Technology – infused with key ingredient Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 – to deliver a plumper look without injectables. The brand is calling it “the natural filler solution”.

The facial started with the breathwork Tranquillity Welcome ritual before a double cleanse and the brand’s signature facial massage. This involved lots of sweeping movements to boost microcirculation and I especially liked the pressure point technique on the neck to work on lymphatic drainage.

Then came the main event – the three-step AHA treatment. After prepping my skin, Parsonage lowered its pH level to avoid any sensitivity and then applied the 25% alpha hydroxy acids Delicate Peel (which they start all new clients on), leaving it to work for 10 minutes.

The peel helps restore vitality as it forces the skin into exfoliating because it is disconnecting the bonds that bind the cells together. The peel varies in strength, from 25% to 38%, so you get effective results for clients whatever their ageing concern.

Then, Parsonage neutralised the peel before popping on cooling Peel-Off Mask, which lifts the complexion and soothes skin. Application of a Sublime Skin serum and moisturiser finished the service.

The verdict: I have sensitive skin on my cheeks and jawline, and I only felt the mildest tingle in these areas when the peel was on.

I experienced no redness afterwards either – my skin was glowing and selfie-ready as soon as I left the spa.

Business benefits: With the fast nature of modern lifestyles causing a rise in premature ageing, this facial is a great way to provide a solution for clients of all ages who are concerned about fine lines, deep-set wrinkles or pigmentation but don’t want to undergo more invasive procedures to get results.

Comfort Zone recommends charging £80 for the 60-minute treatment. 020 3301 0496 /
