  • Description

    A NEW CLINIC JUST OPENED IN LONDON IS OFFERING WHAT SEEMS TO BE THE IDEAL TREATMENT FOR ANYONE WHO'S OVERWEIGHT...A LITTLE BACK BOX A ELECTRICITY THAT'S SAID TO MELT AWAY SURPLUS INCHES WITHOUT EITHER DIETING OR EXERCISE.

    SOUTH AFRICAN, DR. SEBASTIAN HAWKINS, INVENTED THE DEVICE, AND THE TANGLE OF LEADS AND PADS THAT ATTACH IT TO THOSE PORTIONS OF THE CORPULENT BODY IN NEED OF DIMINUTION.

    THE PROCEDURE IS SIMPLE. A TRAINED ATTENDANT WEIGHS AND MEASURES THE CLIENT AND PRODUCES WHAT IS CALLED A FIGURE ANALYSIS WHICH SHOWS WHERE EXCESS FLESH WILL BEST BE ATTACKED.

    THEN FOR THE FASHION-CONSCIOUS CUSTOMER THERE'S NOTHING MORE TO IT THAN RECLINING ON A PADDED COUCH TO BE CONNECTED TO THE BLACK BOX. THIS GENERATES WHAT DR. HAWKINS CALLS A COCKTAIL OF KNOWN AND APPROVED ELECTRICAL CURRENTS USED IN MEDICINE. THE SERIES OF CURRENTS CONTRACTS AND RELAXES THE MUSCLES, WHICH THUS BURN UP FAT FOR FUEL.

    THE SENSATION IS SAID TO BE PLEASANT, AND THE RESULTS DRAMATIC. THE MODEL IN OUR FILM LOST AN INCH AROUND HER WAIST AFTER ONE TREATMENT. AND THE CLINIC SAYS THAT ONLY AN ANNUAL REFRESHER COURSE IS NEEDED TO MAINTAIN THE NEW SHOULD. BUT THERE IS ALSO A DISCREET WARNING..."REALLY OVERWEIGHT PEOPLE ARE ASKED TO KEEP AWAY FROM THE MORE FATTENING FOODS."
