Lypossage

The lypossage massage modality is a body contouring program consisting a specific blend of massage techniques including: Lymphatic Drainage and Myofascial Release. Lypossage is a non-invasive, natural health treatment that helps to cleanse the body of toxins and retained fluids.

Lypossage cleanses the body of stagnant, stalled lymphatic fluid (lymphedema) that can create the lumps and bulges we know as figure imbalance or cellulite. The deeper Lypossage strokes break up adhesions under the skin that can contribute to the dimpled, uneven appearance of cellulite. Another benefit of Lypossage is that it tones the muscles, lifting and firming sagging tissue. Most clients also find that Lypossage enhances their energy and mental clarity as well.

Lypossage is not for weight loss it is designed for dimension loss. It 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. Treatment consists of a combination of body massage techniques and use of the lypossage machine.

A program of monthly or bi-monthly maintenance treatments will help you retain your results. Many Lypossage clients repeat their program annually.

Lypossage is performed in three body zones. Lypossage can be performed on three areas of the body known as zones. The zones are defined as follows:

Zone 1: 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 improved circulation.

Zone 2: includes the upper abdomen, back, decollete (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 improved circulation and lymphatic flow in the upper body.

Zone 3: is performed on the head, neck, and face and 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.

The initial intake process involves taking pictures of your figure before and after treatment and measuring Zones 1 and 2.

Questions about Lypossage

Why do I have cellulite, lumps, and bulges?
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 cellulite 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 among others.

Where does the Lypossage technique come from?
The Lypossage treatment is a specified 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.

Who can perform my Lypossage treatments?
Lypossage Practitioners are specially trained massage and body professionals who have learned this extraordinary hands-on-technique and are certified to practice under the Lypossage name.

How are my treatments scheduled?
Each Lypossage session lasts over 30 minutes and is recommended in a series of treatments over the course of 4-6 weeks. We strongly suggest that clients schedule 2-3 Lypossage sessions a week to experience optimal results. It is important to note that for most clients, it takes 6-10 sessions before clients notice a dimensional difference. Combining Lypossage with LypoSlim wraps further enhances your results.

What are some typical results and how will I know what mine are?
While results vary, cumulative dimension loss over five key measuring points in Zone 1 averaged 6.75 inches in the original study. It is not uncommon to find cumulative inch loss of up to 13 or 14 inches. Most women find that they will drop one or two dress sizes without a significant reduction in their weight. Your Lypossage Practitioner 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?
A diet rich in whole, organic foods and regular body movement will contribute to a terrific outcome. Avoiding foods containing refined sugars, preservatives, hormones, caffeine, and salt will keep your newly detoxified body in the best shape possible. Drinking significant amounts of water is also important to keeping the body hydrated and cleansed.

What do I need to do to maintain my results?
Maintenance programs will be customized to the needs of each individual client. At the completion of your Lypossage series, a Lypossage Practitioner will sit down with you to do a final consultation, including going over your results with you and providing you with a thoughtful recommendation on what your maintenance should be. Continuing with the Home Care Protocol and a program of monthly or bi-monthly maintenance treatments will help you retain your results.
