Asian health and wellness products and services firm VLCC has opened a state of the art wellness center in Nairobi. VLCC will be offering a bouquet of scientific, natural and innovative holistic wellness solutions in the form of slimming and weight management, therapeutic beauty treatments, dermal cosmetology solutions as well as regular beauty services.
The Nairobi center is located along Muthangari Drive, off Waiyaki Way, across Safaricom House. It is the first African based center and also the first outside the company’s mother continent Asia where it operates 300 locations in 16 countries. VLCC, which is widely recognized for its scientific weight loss solutions and its therapeutic approach to beauty treatments, is entering Kenya in a partnership with Sameer Group, one of the largest and reputable business conglomerates in the Eastern African Region.
Speaking during the launch of the new outlet, the First Lady of Kenya, Her Excellency Mrs. Margaret Kenyatta said, “As a country, we are witnessing increased cases of lifestyle related illnesses like obesity and heart diseases, which are preventable if the population is able to understand the benefits of embracing wellness. VLCC’s entry into the market is therefore very timely and I would encourage Kenyans to utilize the VLCC’s expertise in health and wellness to ensure that we are growing a healthy generation.”
The Founder &Vice Chairperson of the VLCC Group, Mrs. Vandana Luthra said that the opening of the wellness center in the country is a manifestation of the organisation’s confidence in the growing Kenyan economy. “Increased awareness about health and wellness in East Africa is fast expanding and given VLCC’s vast experience of 25 years in the preventive healthcare space across diverse geographies, we are confident that we will be able to make a considerable impact in giving further impetus to this very welcome trend,” said Luthra.
VLCC’s plan is to expand its services in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania in its first two years in Africa. All their centers feature skilled and certified staff, and supervisors drawn from the wellness industry. These include nutritionists, dermatologists and medical doctors.
