Lypossage™ - Cellulite Reduction
Lypossage™ is a clinically proven,
researched based, all-natural body contouring treatment that will
help you reshape your figure without invasive surgery. Figure
imbalances like cellulite and bulges on the thighs or abdomen
respond readily to Lypossage™.
This technique involves 18
massage sessions, each designed to progressively improve your
5 SERIES RESHAPING MASSAGE:
Unlike Lypossage™, which uses hands-on manipulation by a massage
therapist, the G5 rids
the body of toxins through a series of vibratory and percussive
therapies administered by a technician, through a wand that has
various interchangeable head attachments. Each attachment has a
distinct purpose designed for specific target areas. Studies have
the benefits of Lypossage™ as improved skin permeability, increased
softness of the skin, and beneficial drainage and detoxification
through the lymphatic system. These treatments tone muscles and
help lift and firm sagging tissue. Treatments last from 30
minutes to one hour and are performed in a series of 18 sessions
over the course of 6 weeks. Results can be a reduction of

The fatty tissue of your body acts as a "toxic waste disposal
site," where substances that it cannot metabolize are dumped.
This congested tissue can have poor circulation (you'll note that
cellulite prone areas are cool to the touch). Lymphatic flow
may also be restricted by tight undergarments and pantyhose.
The cellulitic layer is a physiological fatty layer that is
supposed to be there. The extent to which it is visible is
affected by several variables including: genetic predisposition,
dietary habits, exercise habits, and hormones
Where Does The Lypossage™ Technique Come From?
The Lypossage™ 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. The study was published in Massage and Bodywork Magazine in 1999.
In the study, notable results included an average inch loss of
1-1/2 inches per thigh, and a cumulative average inch loss of
almost 7 inches.
How does Lypossage® work, and is it safe?
Lypossage™ cleanses the body of stagnant, stalled lymphatic fluid
(Lymph edema) 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 firm
ng sagging tissue.
What parts of the body respond to Lypossage™?
Lypossage can be performed on three areas of the body known as
zones. The zones are defined as follows:
Refers to the lower body, including the hips, thighs, buttocks,
and lower abdomen. Expected outcomes for this part of the
body include dimension loss, structural improvements (posture and
carriage), diminished look of cellulite, improved muscle tone,
improved skin tone, cleansing of the lymphatic system, and
includes the upper abdomen, back, décolleté (chest and neck area)
and arms. This zone targets improving posture, dimension loss
in the arms and abdomen, toning and firming of the bust area, and
improving circulation and lymphatic flow in
the upper body.
Is performed on the head, neck, and face. This can provide
quite dramatic results in lifting and toning sagging tissues in the
lower face and neck, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles,
and significantly improving skin tone and texture. This truly
is a "natural" face lift.
I choose Lypossage™?
Lypossage is the leading manual body contouring modality in the
world. While both approaches deliver gratifying results,
Lypossage™ appeals to the person who prefers to have treatments
performed by hand, rather than with a machine. It must also
be performed by a trained massage therapist or other qualified
health services professional for the whole body treatment; or by
aestheticians for the head, neck, and face; there are no such
requirements of contouring machines. For those who
prefer body contouring machines, operated by highly trained
technicians, Lypossage™ does offer this option.
Lypossage™ is a non-invasive, natural health treatment that helps
to cleanse the body of toxins and retaining fluids. Most
clients find that Lypossage™ enhances their energy and mental
clarity. While there are some contraindications for specific
medical conditions, Lypossage® can be safely experienced by most
healthy individuals. It is much safer than surgical
procedures such as liposuction. However, for those who opt
for a more dramatic surgical result, Lypossage™ can be very
beneficial both before and after the liposuction
Who can perform my Lypossage™ treatments?
Lypossage™ practitioners (Lypotherapists) are specially trained
massage and body professionals who have learned this extraordinary
hands-on technique; these Lypotherapists are certified to practice
under the Lypossage™ name.
How are my treatments scheduled?
Each Lypossage™ session lasts about 30 minutes and is
performed in a series of 18 sessions over the course of 4-6
weeks. It is important to note that for most clients, it
takes 8-10 sessions before the results of the initial treatments
become noticeable. After that, progress can often be
ramatic. Combining Lypossage™ with Lypossage™ wraps, and the
new LypoSlim® wrap, further enhances your results.
What are some typical results and how will I know what mine
While results may vary, cumulative dimension loss over five key
measuring points in Zone 1, the average was 6.75 inches in the
original study. However, it is not uncommon to find
cumulative inch loss of up to 13 or 14 inches. One client in
the study lost almost 3 inches in her waist alone. One client
in Ohio, while combining Zone 1 and Zone 2 had a cumulative inch
loss of 21 inches in the 10 measuring points for those zones!
Most women find that they will drop one or two dress sizes without
a significant reduction in their weight. Your Lypotherapist
will weigh, measure, and photograph you before you begin your
program, and at key intervals to track your progress.
Is there a special diet or exercise program?
Though the individuals in the Lypossage® study were restricted from
initiating any new diet or exercise program during the course of
their treatments, we find that most clients become so inspired by
their Lypossage™ results that they readily adopt lifestyle changes
that help them progress even more rapidly. A diet rich in
whole, organic foods and regular body movement will contribute to a
terrific outcome. Avoiding foods containing refined sugars,
preservatives, caffeine and salt, will keep your newly detoxified
body in the best shape possible. Drinking significant amounts
of water is also key to keeping the body hydrated and
