We use steam/aromatherapy and pressotherapy as complementary programs, but each program can be used on its own.  These programs can help detoxify and stimulate lymphatic drainage.

Infrared with steam and aromatherapy

This is a newly designed beauty therapy unit combining the thermal effect of infrared light with the beneficial effects of steam and aromatherapy.  This treatment is great for slimming, sports or surgery recovery or if you need some relaxing timeout.

Some of the benefits:

  • Lipolytic or fat reducing effect; beneficial effect on excess fat since it stimulates local metabolism thanks to the infrared lights, more than other methods
  • Infrared therapy helps the neuromuscular system to recover from maximal endurance performance. Improved recovery can enable harder training and further accelerate strength and conditioning.
  • Detoxifying effect due to increased perspiration and the elimination of drugs,
    toxins, pollutants etc.
  • Stimulating effect on the immune system and on antiviral defenses
  • Analgesic and pain-killing effect
  • Muscle relaxing and soothing effect
  • Vaporization and aroma
  • Better absorption of aromatherapy which are conveyed by steam through sweat glands that are activated through sebaceous glands which are freed from sebum
  • Vessel toning, reducing and firming effect due to the nature of aromatic active principles

Pressotherapy is an exclusive detoxifying treatment, which through effective lymphatic drainage, helps to promote the body’s natural toxin clearing functions. The revitalization and oxygenation of the tissue helps to slim and redefine the legs, stomach and arms while enhancing skin tone.  Pressotherapy stimulates the muscles, eliminates tiredness and helps recovery after exercise and prolonged strain.

Studies have shown benefits for people with:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Poor digestion
  • Depression and mood
  • Chronic muscle and joint pains

How Does it Work?

There are too many things I love about Project Physique to list so my top three are:
1. Holistic care. I came for my body size but my skin and cells are benefiting as well from the infra red lights.
2. Holistic care. I have a stressful job. I get to lie back and relax while I do something great for myself.
3. Holistic care. The staff are incredible. They look after me and my individual needs and tailor my programme accordingly.


Great place to go for relaxation “with a purpose”! Fei and Yvonne are lovely and very affirming.

From: A “Chronic Fibromyalgia Sufferer” sending “Massive Big thank You” to “Project Physique”
I went along to the “Project Physique”  opening night and I discussed with Fei, my chronic condition.  To Fei’s credit, she didn’t promise anything but suggested that I try a course of treatments to see if they would help.  I was at desperation point as daily, I was struggling to function in a normal manner – In fact, I couldn’t remember what normal felt like.
What I do know now, is that if Fei had told me that my pain and fatigue would completely disappear after only a couple of treatments, I would not have believed her.
I carried on with the course of 12 treatments, 3 times a week, and it gets even better, because I’ve also had the added bonus of weight and more importantly fat loss.
After 12 Treatments my stats are:
I have not had any fatigue
I have not had any joint or muscle pain
I’ve lost 40.3cm overall body fat which equates to approx. 2.3kg fat loss or almost 5lbs of butter – Wahoooooo!!! – (13cm around my tummy, 7.4cm around my waist, 9cm around my hips, 4.8cm around my shoulders, 6cm around my thighs and it goes on)
I’ve lost over 2kgs in weight – which doesn’t sound much but I don’t care what the scales say
I’ve put on 1.3kg of lean muscle – toning up – I’m really happy about this
I feel like after every session that I’ve had the equivalent of a deep tissue massage, without the pain.
My body feels alive again, so much so, that I have started another 12 treatments.
I am so thankful and grateful to Fei for her enthusiasm, her knowledge, her professionalism and her guidance throughout this process.

I’m hooked, six sessions over three weeks and I’ve lost 16cm off body fat including 7 cm around my mid line!!! and 1.2kg, without changing my diet or exercise. Best of all I played golf tonight with no pain in my dodgy knee thanks to building muscle in my legs without placing weight and stress on my knee which I’ve struggled with for the past 5 years!


Over 27cm of body fat gone in just 6 sessions! 5.6cm off my tummy alone!  I like it as I’m losing body fat but have not changed any lifestyle yet.
