Introducing the Jamu Tummy Slimming Treatment at Crystal Maiden.

Compared to other Jamu treatments elsewhere, Crystal Maiden’s Jamu treatment is specifically targeted at the tummy area.

The Jamu slimming powder used at Crystal Maiden is made with a nourishing rice powder base and a traditional blend of herbs and spices for a unique thermal slimming treatment. In addition, Crystal Maiden added Chuan Ciao (Grounded Szechuan Pepper) and Chilli Powder for that extra boost of heat! 🙂

So, how does a Jamu treatment at Crystal Maiden work?

First off, we have to strip! *winks*

There will be a disposable dark blue panty provided, and towels to cover your legs and feet to ensure you are kept warm. In addition, a small towel is provided for ladies for modesty. 🙂

Only when you’re ready, do you inform the female therapist that she can enter. She will start off first by cleansing the skin at your tummy. They will also exfoliate the skin with a gentle scrub. This will then allow the better absorption of the Jamu ampoule and paste.

Now, the Jamu ampoule, will be applied on the tummy.

It is formulated with Minyak Serai and Wintergreen Massage Oil for an effective, traditional warming relief for muscle aches and pains.

Jamu Ampoule Ingredients:

  • Minyak Serai
    • Traditional blend consisting of Citronella oil, Peppermint oil and Eucalyptus oil
  • Wintergreen Massage Oil
    • Most popularly known for its pain relief properties. But it also aids in removing excess water, fat and salt from the body, thus helping with water retention, and aiding in weight loss

During this process, the therapist will be able to “feel” your digestive system as they massage your tummy area. They will engage you also in a conversation regarding your dietary intake and habits, and share some suggestions as to how you can improve your digestive health. All tailored to the individual. 🙂

Finally, the therapist will quickly pop out of the room to add warm water to the Jamu Thermal Slimming Powder and apply it as a paste to the tummy area.

Jamu Thermal Slimming Powder Ingredients:

  • Rice and Glutinous Rice
    • Emollient and exfoliation properties to keep skin supple
  • Chuan Ciao Powder
    • Warms the body and alleviate pain
  • Chilli
    • Warms the body and boosts metabolism and circulation
  • Cumin
    • A general tonic; it increases heat in the body and boosts metabolism
  • Coriander
    • Detoxifying and antiseptic properties to heal dryness and skin disorders
  • Cinnamon
    • Relieves symptoms of cold and fever and abdominal discomfort caused by excess gas
  • White Pepper
    • Warms the body and helps to stimulate circulation
  • Fennel
    • Soothing, cleansing and toning effect on skin

Now, the therapist will wrap a few layers of cling wrap around your tummy. This will be followed by a heated pad wrapped around the tummy area for the next 10-15 minutes.

During this period, you can grab the chance to snooze – which I did! I always feel more recharged after the 40 winks! 🙂

If you have entered dream land like me, the therapist at Crystal Maiden will quietly enter the room, and with a slight slow pressure movement, gently arouse you from your induced stupor.

She will then proceed to remove the heat pad, cling wrap and Jamu paste, before massaging the remaining Jamu ampoule to your tummy area.

At Crystal Maiden, the therapists do not just leave the room immediately. They will gently aid your rise from the lying position to the sitting position. And a series of quick back massages to kick start the blood circulation around the body.

My thoughts:

After undergoing 8 x once-a-week sessions of Jamu treatments at Crystal Maiden, I could really sense the difference in my tummy, and digestive system.

I am thankful that I do not have menstrual cramp every month. But I do suffer from bloating and water retention.

After the Jamu treatments, I find that tummy is not as bloated as before, and my periods come more easily than before. In addition, it is much easier when heading to the loo for a number two.

I always believe that the digestive system (read: colon) is very important to good health. All diseases in the body generally start from the colon as the colon is the rubbish bin of the body. If one does not keep the colon clean, the colon is unable to effectively eliminate the wastes and toxins from the body, resulting in these bad things building up within the body.

If you would like to burn the stubborn fats at the tummy, combine the Jamu treatments with core exercises for the abs. My tummy fats were “softer” after the Jamu treatment, which means, the fats are soften and if core abs exercises are done during this period, this will be an easier journey to a well-defined tummy.

So, what are you waiting for? Make a Jamu appointment with Crystal Maiden Skin Professionals now! 🙂
