The benefits of body stimulation
By Dr. Eva Cwynar
As a society, we are touch deprived and this can lead to disease or emotional dysfunction. From the cradle to the nursing home, tactile stimulation and the emotional assurance of a caring touch can bring about a sense of well-being and security. In numerous studies conducted on infants, TRI researchers have found improved weight gain and development in pre-term infants, improved weight gain and motor behavior in cocaine-exposed infants, and improved weight gain and decreased stress behavior in HIV-exposed infants, all because of touch. Full-term infants also benefit with increased alertness and social behavior, less crying and increased weight gain. Touch stimulates the senses and the body in general. It can also help the body to heal.
Body stimulation as a healing tool has been around for thousands of years in many cultures. Touching is a natural human reaction to pain and stress, and for conveying compassion and support. Think of the last time you bumped your head or had a sore calf. What did you do? You probably immediately rubbed it. The same was true of our earliest ancestors. Healers throughout time and throughout the world have instinctually and independently developed a wide range of therapeutic techniques using touch. Many are still in use today, and with good reason. We now have scientific proof of the benefits, ranging from treating chronic diseases and injuries to alleviating the growing tensions of our modern lifestyles. It does more than just relax your body and mind. It also encourages specific physiological and psychological changes that occur when body stimulation is utilized as a preventative, frequent therapy.
What kinds of body stimulation? Lipomassage and i-Lipo Ultra.
The Benefits of Lipo-Massage
In an age of all technology, all the time, Lipo-Massage and i-Lipo Ultra + can offer a non-invasive and humanistic approach based on your body's natural ability to increase energy. It improves blood flow, helps flush toxins from the body and works to stimulate the body's natural production of collagen, leading to tighter, firmer skin while helping eliminate the look of cellulite.
• Non-invasive. No injections, anesthesia or probing.
• Quick and convenient. It takes less than an hour so it's performed as an outpatient procedure.
• Improves the skin. Delivers a tight, toned appearance and a more youthful feel.
• Painless. Virtually no risk of irritation.
• Effective. Results are visible between six and 10 sessions.
The Benefits of i-Lipo Ultra +
The i-Lipo uses a vacuum massage action to release stored fat cells so they can be converted into energy. This process of fatty acid release is a natural response of the body when the body needs to used stored energy reserves, thus i-Lipo is not creating any unnatural reaction in the body nor does it affect or damage any surrounding structures such as skin, blood vessels and peripheral nerves. A period of exercise post treatment will ensure the complete metabolism and thus elimination of the freed fatty acids. It's been compared to liposuction but it's completely non-invasive.
• Safe and painless. Low levels of visible red laser lights stimulate fat tissue.
• Targeted fat reduction. Pads can be positioned on specific problem areas.
• Immediate results. You'll notice a difference after each treatment. Full results visible within a month.
As part of a whole-body approach to your health, I recommend body stimulation in order to help you feel better physically, mentally and emotionally.
