Lypossage® Cellulite Treatment (For Women):
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.
