Body Wellness: Start Here

Body wellness is an important aspect of overall health and well-being but it is often overlooked or neglected. People may prioritise work, family, ageing parents or social commitments and neglect their physical and mental health. Yet neglecting one’s body wellness can have serious consequences like an increased risk of chronic diseases, mental health issues and a reduced quality of life. 

Here we want to discuss when a person should consider body wellness and some practical tips for improving it.


When to Consider Body Wellness

There are many reasons why a person should consider body wellness:

  • To improve physical health: Body wellness is essential for maintaining good physical health. This includes getting enough exercise, eating a balanced and nutritious diet, getting enough sleep and avoiding harmful habits such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Improving physical health can help reduce the risk of chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes and obesity.
  • To improve mental health: Body wellness is also important for maintaining good mental health. This includes managing stress, practising self-care and engaging in activities that promote relaxation and positive emotions. Neglecting mental health can lead to depression, anxiety and other mental health issues.
  • To improve quality of life: Improving body wellness can lead to a higher quality of life. This includes feeling more energetic, having a better mood and being able to enjoy activities that one may not have been able to participate in before.
  • To prevent future health issues: Neglecting body wellness can lead to future health issues including chronic diseases and mental health issues. By prioritising body wellness a person can take steps to prevent these issues from arising in the future.


Practical Tips for Improving Body Wellness

  • Get regular exercise: Aim to get at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise each day, such as brisk walking, cycling, or swimming.
  • Eat a healthy and balanced diet: Focus on eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains, and limit processed and sugary foods.
  • Get enough sleep: Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night, and establish a consistent sleep routine.
  • Practice stress management techniques: This may include deep breathing, meditation, yoga, or other relaxation techniques.
  • Engage in activities that bring joy: Whether it’s spending time with loved ones, pursuing a hobby, or engaging in creative activities, it’s important to engage in activities that bring joy and fulfilment.
  • Avoid harmful habits: This includes smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and drug use.


In conclusion, body wellness is an essential aspect of overall health and well-being. It’s important to prioritise physical and mental health, and take practical steps to improve them. By doing so, a person can improve their quality of life, prevent future health issues, and promote overall health and well-being.


What If I Need More Help?

When it comes to our physical and mental health, the person that knows you best is your own self. We don’t always recognise the person we see in the mirror as we age. We all know when we don’t feel right which is why BioConnect has worked so hard to provide real solutions. One of the first pieces of advice we can offer is to reach out for help.

Weight gain can be frustrating and our relentless hormones aren’t innocent. Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Corona can be the best 30-45 minutes you can spend building the treatment plan that finally makes a real difference. We have options that range from medicated weight-loss to fat-melting, muscle building and even mesotherapy. Dr. Corona will discuss the options available at BioConnect Medical and guide you accordingly.

Vanquish Me – Fat Melting

Vanquish ME is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that uses radio-frequency technology to reduce unwanted fat in targeted areas. It is an effective treatment for people who have stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. However, not everyone is a good candidate for Vanquish ME. Here are some factors to consider when deciding if Vanquish ME is right for you:

  • Body Mass Index (BMI): Vanquish ME is best suited for people with a BMI of less than 30. If you have a higher BMI, you may not see significant results from the procedure.
  • Targeted areas: Vanquish ME is designed to target the abdomen, thighs and flanks. If you have fat deposits in other areas like the arms or neck, Vanquish ME may not be the best option.
  • Health history: Before undergoing Vanquish ME you should discuss your health history with a qualified provider. This includes any medical conditions, medications and certainly any metal implants as they may disqualify you from being a suitable candidate.
  • Expectations: It’s important to have realistic expectations about the results of Vanquish ME. While it is effective for reducing fat, it is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise but rather a step up for getting rid of that pouch that won’t budge! Our patients lose 2.5 inches with this treatment by attending one session per week for 6 weeks. Results can be seen during the six weeks but optimal results are seen at the completion of the treatment. 


Our trained therapist can assess your individual needs and goals and recommend the best treatment plan for achieving them. Vanquish ME can be a safe and effective way to reduce unwanted fat and achieve a more contoured physique but it’s important to approach the procedure with realistic expectations and a commitment to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.



EMSCULPT is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that is designed to help individuals build muscle and burn fat in targeted areas of the body. It is FDA-approved to treat four main areas: the abdomen, buttocks, arms and thighs.

EMSCULPT uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to induce supramaximal muscle contractions in the targeted area. These contractions stimulate the muscles and cause them to grow and strengthen, resulting in a more toned and defined appearance.

In addition to building muscle, EMSCULPT also helps to burn fat in the targeted area. The intense muscle contractions stimulate the body’s metabolic processes which can help to reduce fat deposits in the area.

Overall, EMSCULPT is a great treatment option for individuals who want to improve their body composition and enhance their muscle tone in a non-invasive way. It is important to note that EMSCULPT is not a weight loss treatment and is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise routine.

EMSCULPT is generally recommended for individuals who are in good physical health and have a body mass index (BMI) of less than 30. It is also ideal for people who have trouble building muscle mass despite regular exercise and a healthy diet.

EMSCULPT is not recommended for pregnant women, people with metal implants, individuals with pacemakers or anyone who has a history of seizures. It is important to consult with a qualified provider to determine if EMSCULPT is right for you.



Mesotherapy is a minimally invasive body contouring treatment that involves injecting a custom blend of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients directly into the subcutaneous fat layer of the skin. This treatment is designed to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, promote weight loss and contour the body.

Mesotherapy is generally recommended for individuals who have a body mass index (BMI) of less than 30 and are in good overall health. It is also ideal for people who have trouble losing weight or toning specific areas of the body despite regular exercise and a healthy diet especially in the areas of the flanks, arms and stomach.

Mesotherapy may not be suitable for everyone though. It is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women, people with certain medical conditions (such as diabetes, autoimmune disorders or blood clotting disorders) or individuals who are taking certain medications (such as blood thinners).

Sometimes it isn’t all physical and we need help with the psychological aspect of our lives. BioConnect has partnered with Frances Bello to help patients who need help in this area. We are not just physical beings and taking care of our mental health is one of the pillars of health that needs just as much attention.
