Simply Her inaugural Beauty & Wellness Retreat – an energising and revitalizing treat

Singapore, 28 April 2015 - Simply Her, the solutions-driven lifestyle magazine of SPH Magazines, kicked off its inaugural Beauty & Wellness Retreat last weekend, which saw 95 Simply Her readers joining in the day’s activities. Getting things off to an energising start was a yoga session by Pure Yoga’s instructors who moved slowly through a variety of stretches to awaken the body and mind of participants. 

This was followed by a series of talks, starting with Dr Liu Han Ping, resident doctor at Thomson Well Women Clinic, who touched on the importance of regular screenings, especially for those with a family history of diseases like cancer, heart problems and stroke. This allows for the early detection and timely treatment of life-threatening diseases, which can potentially save your life. 

Gynaecological disorders were also discussed. Dr Beh Suan Tiong, obstetrician and gynaecologist at Thomson Medical Centre, singled out the common problems women experience, from vaginal infections to hormonal/menstrual disorders, as well as benign tumours and cancerous growths. He advised women to look out for warning signs that may indicate a more serious problem.

Ending the day on a lighter note, renowned chef, cookbook author and restaurateur Violet Oon demonstrated how to whip up a healthier version of chicken curry and fruit mousseline using Marigold Non-fat Yoghurt. Readers even got to taste her delectable creations. 

Diana Lee, General Manager of Fashion & Beauty, SPH Magazines, said: “We’re glad to see such a good turnout for Simply Her’s first Beauty & Wellness Retreat. The aim of this was to educate and enrich readers to enable them to make informed decisions about their health and wellness. To this end, we are delighted to be able to tap on the expertise of Thomson Medical, as well as Pure Yoga and Marigold Yoghurt.”

Penelope Chan, editor of Simply Her, added: “We launched this retreat to address the beauty and wellness concerns of the Simply Her reader, from gynaecological disorders to aesthetics procedures. This was a wonderful day out for our readers, who had a chance to unwind while benefiting from the educational talks by our medical experts.”

The inaugural Simply Her Beauty & Wellness Retreat was held at Orchard Parade Hotel Singapore on April 25, and sponsored by Marigold Yoghurt, Pure Yoga and Thomson Medical.
