Kim Kardashian has revealed that her wedding to Kanye West will be at the end of May. With only months to go before the big day, Kim has been getting ready, hitting the gym and spending hours and thousands of dollars getting spa treatments while the family vacations in Thailand.
While filming the Kardashian family reality show in Iniala Beach House resort in Phuket, Thailand, Kim is said to have spent six hours a day in the private spa that comes in each villa.
“Each villa the Kardashian family stayed in at Iniala has its own spa, with six hours of treatments every day,” a hotel source told Mail Online.
Each villa costs roughly $80,000 a week and includes a private spa with treatments such as massage, facial, body treatments and nail care.
In addition to a 60-minute hand massage, 90-minute cold mask facial, lotus blossom wrap, white mud wrap, hot stone massage and deluxe manicures and pedicures, Kim apparently also indulged in an unusual Thai treatment known as butt, face and breast slapping, according to Grazia magazine via The Daily Mail.
During the treatment, a masseuse slaps over these areas of your body and claims to reduce wrinkles, tighten pores and give a more youthful complexion.
However, doctors have their doubts that the treatments work and say that any results would be only temporary.
“This slapping technique doesn’t have any scientific base,” says Dr Mica Engel at London-based non-surgical skin clinic, Waterhouse Young.
“The technique has similarities to tapotement, a technique of rhythmic tapping on the body used in Swedish massage.”
“But it’s unlikely that any long term results can be achieved from that alone.”
“Swelling and increased blood flow are normal reactions, but they do not last.”
Apparently the hotel list of spa treatments doesn’t include the questionable slapping treatment so it is uncertain where Kim tried it.
While the treatment may sound bizarre, Kim has openly admitted to trying anything in order to look her best.
“I love trying anything that makes you look and feel youthful,” Kim explained after she had a vampire facial, which was filmed for the family reality show.
More recently, an episode showed Kim visiting her plastic surgeon because she had decided that her hands look old and wanted to do something about it.
At the same time, Kim became distracted after finding out that laser treatments could help with the stretchmarks she had incurred during her pregnancy, so she undergoes laser treatments, saying, “the things you do for beauty.”
While in Thailand, Kim revealed her post baby body in a series of ever shrinking bikinis, including a skimpy thong that seemed to showcase the plastic surgery buttocks augmentation that helped the curvy fashion lover rise to fame, but that she has always denied.
Kim has recently posted on her Twitter account to deny rumors of a buttocks augmentation, writing, “I’m seeing all these nonsense tabloids claiming I have butt implants-injections. Get a life! Using pics of me 15lbs skinnier (before I had my baby) comparing to me now! I still have weight to lose. Anyone who has had a baby knows how hard it is to lose weight(especially the last bit of weight) & your body totally changes! Making fun of me pregnant & making fun of me trying to lose weight now shame on you. I’m not perfect but I will never conform to your skinny standards sorry! Not me. And BTW I’ve lost a lot so far & I’m proud of that! Don’t give young girls a complex!”none
