I first heard about Lypossage, a healthy non-invasive massage modality that diminishes the look of cellulite and reduce dimension, as I was beginning my massage practice in March 2000. It sounded fabulous and I was really interested in taking the class. However, I had just started by business and at the time the class was cost prohibitive and time consuming.
So I tucked this information away in the back of my mind saying I would take it at some time in the future. In July 2005, it came to my attention again. I was looking at a continuing education brochure and saw Lypossage advertised. It came at a time when I was quite frustrated with my own appearance. The stress of starting a business, working many hours and eating poorly had taken a toll on my body. I had ballooned to 163 pounds and on my 5’2” frame, I didn’t find it very attractive. I wore a size 12-14 – the biggest I have ever been.
Having been a former aerobics instructor for 11 years, I still couldn’t budge the scale or the inches. When I touched my stomach, it didn’t feel like my own. While I’m not the type to consider more drastic procedures, I was feeling desperate. I thought that this was very serendipitous for that Lypossage ad to appear at that time and I decided to call.
There just happened to be a class in August so I signed up. I busily rescheduled clients in order to take the time off and travel to Connecticut for the training. I was really excited about the training and decided to become a trainer. In October, I traveled back to Connecticut for a crash course in how to train. I had already had two vacations planned that Fall, I still didn’t have a Lypossage client. I thought what a perfect time to be my own case study. So I trained one of my therapists and he performed Lypossage on me. This was in November of 2005. Since the holidays were approaching and it was our busiest time of the year and I wanted to launch Lypossage in December, we finished the protocol in 4 weeks.
Here is my testimonial….
”I didn’t include an exercise program while I was getting Lypossage treatments. In fact, I only exercised once during the whole month. It is not that I didn’t want to. I just didn’t have any extra time. As far as diet goes, I usually eat about 90% organic, but during the Lypossage sessions, I probably only ate 75-80% organic, just because it was Thanksgiving and then two friend’s birthdays.
I started my Lypossage treatment on November 19 and finished December 16 with Zones 1 and 2. I ended up losing 5 pounds and 18.75 inches in Zone 1 and 14.25 inches in Zone 2. I can now wear 2 sizes smaller! I am totally happy, but I just keep thinking how much better it could have been if I had exercised and ate normally.”
Lypossage was the jump start my body needed. I started exercising regularly, continued my organic eating. I followed an eating plan described in Dr. Oz’s book, “You on a Diet” and continued with my Lypossage HomeCare. Since then I am now a size 6-8 and weigh 140 pounds almost three years later.
