LPG Endermologie

Much like in the traditional Chinese rolling cupping technique, the treatment head of the machine combines the rolling with the lift of the skin (accomplished by the rollers and the valves), gently pulling the skin tissue, to provoke a physiological response (ex: activation of collagen and elastin production or activation of lipolysis). EndermologieŽ can be used to eliminate stubborn fat that is resistant to physical exercise and dieting, as well as cellulites, spider veins, puffy eyes, wrinkles and saggy jawline, conditions most commonly associated with "blood stagnation", "yin deficiency" or "damp accumulation" in Chinese medicine. This treatment modality is a perfect complement of any weight loss and skin rejuvenation programs. At Quintessence, we use it in conjunction with other treatment modalities (acupuncture, herbal therapy or qi gong), but not at the same time, as this would result in fatigue and even exhaustion.

During the treatment, you will be comfortably lying on the treatment table for about 30 minutes, while your practitioner will provide you a personalized treatment according with your diagnosis according to the principles of Chinese medicine. After the treatment you might feel light and relaxed, similar to what you feel after a deep tissue massage or an intense workout. The improvement appears quickly, usually in 3 to ten treatments, depending on the condition.

One session is typically around $60 but can vary depending on the length of the treatment.
