What is Obesity?

Overweight and obesity are defined as abnormal or excessive fat accumulation that presents a risk to health. A crude population measure of obesity is the body mass index (BMI), a person’s weight (in kilograms) divided by the square of his or her height (in metres). A person with a BMI of 30 or more is generally considered obese. A person with a BMI equal to or more than 25 is considered overweight.


Obesity in and of itself is a major health problem, but on top of that are the serious diseases for which obesity is a major risk factor. These wide ranging potential complications of obesity include atherosclerosis and cardiac disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, osteoarthritis, dyslipidemia, various forms of cancer (colon, kidney, endometrial, and postmenopausal breast cancer), and sleep apnoea. Worldwide, approximately 2.5 million deaths annually are attributed to overweight/obesity.

Obese individuals tend to engage in less exercise and physical activity and may be aerobically deconditioned. Consequently their heart and lungs have to work harder with increased activity. The sequelae of obesity becomes a viscous cycle so that these individuals find themselves with increased shortness of breath with activity leading to decreased activity, increased eating, less activity, decreased function, and increased perception of exertion that results in yet even more overall decreased activity levels.

What is known is that avoiding obesity and adopting healthy habits and practices will be essential in lowering the rates of death from these serious complications of obesity disorders around the world.

Innovative idea

Despite such a startling situation, there are fewer scientific and proven models that treat obesity, using Physiotherapy, Medical Advices and Lifestyle modifications as prescribed by Smart Wellness, today. We are a unique Physiotherapy, Rehabilitation , Overweight and Obesity Management and Therapeutic Medi-SPA centre - first of its kind in the healthcare sector to use such a combination - offering scientifically & clinically proven non- surgical obesity treatments which are highly effective in managing weight and reducing lifestyle diseases. ESCASO is a life-style course correction clinic that delves on both modern techniques as well as innate prowess of human body to manage weight and control obesity, thus effectively ensuring a longer, healthier and a wholesome life.

Personalised treatment

ESCASO strives to achieve one’s ideal body weight from several angles which include optimal eating habits, food intake, activity levels, Physiotherapeutic neuromuscular stimulation - under electrotherapy and other periodic treatments that may be required from patient to patient. From the Body Composition Analysis, one gets a fair understanding of your state of health, primarily tackling key objectives. We don‘t prescribe any medicines, injections, surgeries or stressful and strenuous exercises like in gym and beauty therapies ; so even if you are suffering from a daunting knee pain or a back pain or do not have sufficient time to exercise, you can seek assistance from ESCASO, effectively getting the same benefits.

Easy to follow programmes

Obesity is the single biggest threat to humankind across the world as the amount of obese and unhealthy populace continues to grow. Broadly, WHO has defined Overweight as BMI greater than or equal to 25 and Obesity as BMI greater than or equal to 30.

Personalised Packages

ESCASO packages are designed to ensure that the amount of weight lost must not return and imbalance the status of your health. These treatment programs, spanning from 30 days to 180 days. This will take you through changes that last a lifetime, leading to much improved health and wellbeing. Moreover, treatments are planned and structured as per a client’s time and professional constraints. At best, one may have to visit the clinic on alternate days (a maximum of 3 days a week) and spend little more than an hour in each session.

There is no crash dieting, starvation or any exotic diet like fruits, watermelon or banana. We hardly demand any drastic change in food habits as you would be eating all the Rice, Chapatti, Chicken, Fish, Veggies, Dal (according to your preference) that you prepare at home. We would only make minor changes in your current diet. It is not a beauty therapy or cosmetic program or fitness program that offered by many beauty parlours, gym and spas. Perhaps this is why while all its major competitors see a significant drop out of patients after initial packages, patients stick to ESCASO programs to manage weight, improve mobility and dysfunctions, improving their mental state and a healthy lifestyle for the rest of their lives, leading to huge loyalty.

Programs for children, pregnant women and corporate executives

ESCASO works towards an ideal weight, controlling any potential medical complications, regulating sleep and rest patterns, eating in a healthy and enriched way, restoring nutrition levels for breast feeding, planning the exact activity levels and more importantly, coping with the post-delivery blues. Studies say that women aged 25 to 45 years show greater risk of becoming overweight during and after pregnancy.
