La Chelé Medical Aesthetics
430 Union Square Drive, New Hope
Jumpstart your summer body at La Chelé Medical Aesthetics! Stop feeling self-conscious about wearing less clothes and take advantage of the only non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that builds muscle and burns fat for men and women. EMSCULPT lifts, fills and firms the buttocks and tones the abdomen. It has also shown impressive results with arms and calves too. This procedure is perfect for those who wish to enhance their physique beyond what is achievable in the gym. EMSCULPT can activate muscles in ways that the body simply cannot through exercise alone. This device uses HIFEM (high-intensity focused electromagnetic) technology which induces powerful muscle contractions not achievable through voluntary contractions. When muscle tissue is exposed to supramaximal contractions, it adapts to the focused workout by reshaping its inner structure. One 30 minute session is equivalent to 20,000 sit ups or squats! It is reported that patients are averaging 16% increase of muscle mass, 19% average fat reduction and 11% reduction in abdominal muscle. Results start right after the first treatment and continue to improve for several weeks after final sessions are completed. A minimum of 4 treatments are required. Ask about their LC EMSCULPT Club!

Getting Out in Bucks County 2019
Stroll along the Canal
Have you explored the Delaware River Canal? With scenic views up and down Bucks County, you can take a leisurely walk or bike ride (there are several bike rental shops such as Greenway & Pure Energy Cycling). Many lovely Bucks County riverside towns are connected by the canal, so if you are athletic enough you might want to visit a few. If you find that you really love the canal and want to know more, please check out Friends of the Delaware Canal.
Visit the Parks of Bucks County
Have a picnic, rent a kayak, explore a hiking trail, ride a horse, play some tennis. There are so many fun activities that the parks in our area have to offer! Check out Core Creek Park (Newtown), Lake Towhee Park (Applebachsville), Peace Valley Park (Doylestown/New Britain), Playwicki Park (Langhorne), Ringing Rocks Park (Upper Black Eddy), Silver Lake Park (Bristol), Tinicum Park (Erwinna) or Tohickon Valley Park (Point Pleasant). Even further, there are a few PA State Parks in Bucks County too: Nockamixon (Quakertown), Ralph Stover (Upper Black Eddy), Tyler (Newtown), Neshaminy (Bensalem) & Delaware Canal (Upper Blck Eddy). Canoe at Tyler State Park
Golf at a Bucks County public course
There are plenty of great places to get out and play in our area. Makefield Highlands (Yardley) is beautiful. There is also Five Ponds (Warminster), The Bucks Club (Jamison), Northampton (Richboro) and Middletown (Langhorne).
Think of golf. Ok, now take away the golf balls, the clubs and the holes; add baskets and frisbees and you’ve got Disc Golf. It’s this whole underground thing. There’s even an association devoted to managing the disc golfers of the world, not the PGA but the PDGA. Believe it or not, we have a few courses right here in Bucks County. There’s even a league in Tyler Park.
