Today's exercises in video clips 2 and 3 are the basic first and then the more advanced variation. . .

Road-testing the Body Ballancer treatment at the Private Clinic, Harley st, London

.
You can see me in my video clip wearing the inflating Body Ballancer compression garment during the 45 min treatment session.
(Definitely not looking my most glam today-) .
The gentle, rhythmic inflating action felt relaxing as it gave my body- from toes to tum- a circulation-boosting lymphatic drainage massage.
.
This can improve the appearance of cellulite and skin quality, reduce bloating and help fluid retention, even taking you down a dress size before a red carpet event. .
It can be used after sport to help muscle recovery by eliminating toxins more speedily through the improved lymphatic drainage system. .
It’s the go-to body contouring treatment for many celebrities.
.
Due also to the improvement of increased oxygenated blood flow, this treatment can also help speed up healing and reduce inflammation after any fat-freezing, laser, or ultrasound liposculpture treatments. .
I have tried over the years – manual lymphatic drainage massages and Endermology treatments to help improve cellulite, and the Universal Contour Bodywrap.
but the Body Ballancer treatment is much more pleasant and relaxing and you don’t even have to undress. .

Finally a move towards helping mental health and comparison anxiety especially for teens.

Be yourself
Don't compare 
Don't base your self-worth on others' online perceptions of you.

I would show how clothes can flatter and sculpt your body shape to attract the eye to your best bits and detract from those you like least.
.
Dressing cleverly is all about creating an illusion whatever your body shape.
.
Everyone can dress to be the best versions of themselves with no need to use apps or filters on their social media posts.
.
No celebrity I have ever dressed in all my 30 years as a celebrity stylist has had a perfect body.  We are all unique and should embrace our own individuality. .

Our bodies change as we grow older

Our bodies change as we grow older.
Don't compare yourself to others. 
Or even to how you used to be.
Be yourself.
Be proud of how you are now.
No one is perfect.
Embrace your flaws. They are what make you 'you'.
Love what you see in the mirror.
Don't filter your photos.
Be real.
Be you.

My old body feels and moves so much better when I do a minimum of 1 Pilates class a week

My old body feels and moves so much better when I do a minimum of 1 Pilates class a week. .
3 classes would be optimum but when both work and social life is busy, it's difficult to fit everything in and motivation to get up at 6am for a 7am class is less strong after a few consecutive nights out and just a glass or two of rose. ......
.
Reformer Pilates Scissors exercise using only one strap at a time for core stability, abs and hip flexors.
.
Making sure that the hips stay still, back stays in neutral and lower abs and glutes remain switched on. .
