Lypossage® Cellulite Treatment:

Cost Per Session: $105.00 (30 Minute Session)
Should be done in 18 Sessions over 6 weeks time


How Does It Work & Is It Safe? 
Lypossage® cleanses the body of stagnant, stalled lymphatic fluid (Lymphoedema) that can create the lumps and bulges we know as figure imbalance.  The deeper Lypossage® strokes break up adhesions under the skin that can contribute to the dimpled, uneven appearance of cellulite.  Lypossage® also tones the muscles, lifting and firming sagging tissue.

Where Does This Techniques Come From? The treatment is a specific blend of massage modalities that derive from physical therapy, including deep lymphatic    drainage and deep tissue release.  It was created by Charles W. Wiltsie III, LMT, an internationally recognized massage therapy educator and practitioner.  Mr. Wiltsie conducted a year long study of 100 female subjects that documented the effectiveness of the technique, which was published in  Massage and Bodywork Magazine in 1999.  In the study, notable results included an average inch loss per thigh of almost 1 1/2 inches with overall lose between the navel and mid-thigh of 6.75 inches.

 

What Parts of the Body Respond to Lypossage®?Lypossage® is performed on the lower body, including the  buttocks, hip, thighs and lower abdomen, as well as the upper body, including the arms, and the face, neck and head. Lypossage® has some of its most dramatic effects on areas prone to sagging, such as the lower face and neck, as well as the buttocks and upper thighs.

Deep Tissue Massage:

Cost Per Session: $150.00 (80 minute session)

What Is Deep Tissue Massage?  
Deep tissue Massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. 

Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage:  It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.

How does deep tissue massage work?  When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.  Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist often uses direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles.

Will deep tissue massage hurt?  At certain points during the massage, most people find there is usually some discomfort and pain.  It is important to tell the massage therapist when things hurt and if any soreness or pain you experience is outside your comfort range. There is usually some stiffness or pain after a deep tissue massage, but it should subside within a day or so. The massage therapist may recommend applying ice to the area after the massage.
