Acupuncture + Lipo Light Fat Reduction + Massage for Weight Loss
Lipo-Light Fat Reduction Treatment
Lipo-Light Fat Reduction Treatment clinically proven to reduce up to 30% of fat in the targeted area after a few treatments! Targeted fat reduction in abdomen, thighs, upper arms and chin.
How does it work?
The heat and light emitted from the pads of the Lipo-Light stimulates the release of energy causing a physiological change in the body.
The combined therapy of heat, light and exercise completes the process of burning this released energy resulting in immediate and visible slimming and toning – but only in the areas you want!
Lipo-Light can deliver effective results in just one treatment. However, even greater sustained results take place when continued Lipo Light Therapy is used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise regime.
What is Lipo-Light? Lipo Light is the next evolution of standard liposuction. It is Advanced Slimming Technology for Non-invasive body contouring treatment and Delivering Immediate Results!
Using the power of the latest LED Light Therapy, Lipo-Light is the natural and healthy way to inch loss on the waist, hips, thighs, upper legs and even the arms. Lipo-Light is a method of body contour improvement without any scarring. The whole treatment is non-invasive, relaxing, pain free and soothing.
Why is it Non-invasive? Lipo-Light can deliver effective results in just one treatment! It safely penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the fat cells. This stimulation opens the cells walls breaking down the contents allowing the fat to escape. Fat content is then transported around the body to tissues where it will be “burned off” during a period of post-treatment exercise, through exercise and stimulate your lymphatic system, it increases your metabolism to metabolize these fat. This is NOT a surgical procedure, No down time, No pains.
Why is it so Great? The best part about the Lipo-Light is there is no bruising, swelling, burning, pain or anesthesia required; essentially NO SIDE EFFECTS!
So what happens to the fat? Once the fat leaves the fat cells, it is transported as free fatty acids to the lymphatic system to be used as energy. Visible results appear immediately and will improve over time. The best part is there is NO PAIN and NO DOWNTIME. In fact lots of patients describe it as “pleasurable as a hot stone massage.”
Another benefit of Lipo-Light is that it can boost collagen due to heat. Lipo-Light in point of fact assists in sculpting the body in making the skin firm the process aids in renewed collagen to the treated area.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Weight Loss
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the belief is that excessive weight gains are caused mainly by an imbalance in the body due to a malfunction of the spleen and liver organ systems. Skilled acupuncture practitioners will zero in on specific body areas to effect weight loss. Among these are the endocrine system and kidneys, which are addressed to treat water retention and to stimulate nerve and hormonal rebalance. The spleen and thyroid gland are also targeted to effect sugar and hormonal rebalancing. Finally, the adrenal and ovary glands are included to treat weight gain due to menopause or Premenstrual syndrome (PMS). Some people notice the effects of acupuncture fairly quickly and only require treatments every other week.
Another Chinese acupuncture practice for losing weight is ear stapling. This involves manipulating points on the ear to control food cravings. Auricular acupuncture has been used successfully to help cigarette smokers and heroin addicts kick their drug habits. When properly administered by a qualified acupuncturist, this technique may help some people lose weight. One study, published in Medical Acupuncture, found that ear acupuncture combined with a 2,000 calorie a day diet and 15-minute walk helped reduce weight. The study involved 20 obese women, 22 to 42 years of age. Half of those who received weekly 15-minute sessions of ear acupuncture lost an average of 10 pounds. Those without ear acupuncture averaged only a three-pound loss. Moreover, the women who received the acupuncture treatments reported a decrease in appetite.
The effect of acupuncture on a client’s emotions also plays an important role in aiding weight loss. Acupuncture affects the neuroendocrine system by blocking harmful neurochemicals to restore the natural balance of hormones and neurotransmitter levels. The resulting release of endorphins helps to reduce stress, which in turn helps to prevent the urge to overeat.
The potential side effects of acupuncture include soreness, fatigue and muscle spasms. With the hormone levels and bodily processes changing, it is common to feel sore and exhausted. Often times, the nerve simulation caused by acupuncture will continue after the needles have been removed. However, the muscle tremors should be gone within a day or two. The side effects can also be emotional.
It is important to note that acupuncture treatments must be administered by a qualified acupuncturist. For the best results, these treatments should be combined with a reduced calorie diet and appropriate physical exercise. The critical point to be made here is that acupuncture should be viewed as a support system not a sole modality.
As with all medical conditions, always seek the advice of a doctor before beginning any acupuncture treatments for weight loss.
