What is the Body Ballancer?
Massaging your way to a healthier, toned body and a relaxed mind may sound like a fantasy; but it is now a reality. The Body Ballancer is our new state-of-the-art, FDA approved, lymphatic massage system that we are excited to be able to now offer at the Karidis Clinic. It is immensely relaxing – you simply lie back while your body’s problem areas are treated.
Many athletes, supermodels and celebrities make lymphatic massage part of their routine due to the compelling results. In the UK, you don’t usually hear about lymphatic massage unless something is wrong and needs medical treatment, but in other countries it is a routine technique due to the excellent results, from body toning to reducing cellulite – and the Brits are now catching on to the benefits.
A treatment to relish!
To add to the visible results, it is an enjoyable experience. The Body Ballancer forces you to take time-out and relax which is in line with the current trend for wellbeing. People are now realising the physical and mental benefits of deliberate and dedicated self-care. The treatment will feel like a whole team of massage therapists are working on your body at once!
The Body Ballancer system is supremely effective and highly addictive and makes treatment easy, with the convenience of an automated massage suit which looks like a cosy sleeping bag. You just climb inside, zip up and then lie back and relax while the suit gets to work.
The suit was originally designed for medical treatment, helping to reduce symptoms of life-changing conditions such as lymphoedema and fibromyalgia – until it was realised that the same actions could treat a number of confidence damaging aesthetic problems such as cellulite.
What can the Body Ballancer be used for?
There are numerous benefits to using the Body Ballancer. The system can be used for:
Aiding your pre and post-surgery
One or two sessions before the procedure will reduce water retention and excess fluid, while boosting lymphatic flow. After the procedure, a course of 4 -6 will reduce any post-surgery swelling, puffiness or bruising.
The Body Ballancer can also reduce fluid retention after non-surgical body contouring.
One of our liposuction patients, Andrea Fisher, was so thrilled with the results she wants her own Body Ballancer at home (we often hear this!):
I am in love with the Body Ballancer and am amazed at the speed of my recovery, I still have a way to go, but it’s hard to believe that my surgery was just over a fortnight ago as I’m doing so much better than I thought I would be. I feel great after each session and it provides a lot of relief from post-surgery discomfort. I really want one of my own now!
Aiding weight loss
A lymphatic massage with our Body Ballancer will help to reduce water weight. Many people say they feel much lighter straight after treatment. Celebrities are known to have a Body Ballancer treatment when they are getting ready for the red carpet to make them feel sleek in their designer dresses. The Body Ballancer can also improve results following CoolSculpting fat freezing treatments.
Reducing the appearance of cellulite
Reducing the appearance of cellulite is the beauty holy grail – there are so many expensive products on the market claiming to banish cellulite, but none of them get the results you want.
You can lose weight by hitting the gym – but since cellulite is a skin issue and not a fat issue, although exercising and a healthy diet will help, cellulite will still be visible. The massage motion of the Body Ballancer reduces the appearance of cellulite and will tighten the skin.
Boosting your immune system
The Body Ballancer destroys bacteria and viruses and removes toxins, waste and cell debris and will relax your mind and body – in turn, this will boost your immune system.
Massage has long been known to reduce tension and stress, and the Body Ballancer provides the ultimate massage with a gentle, rhythmic action. Not only does the lymphatic massage reduce everyday aches, pains and headaches, but it can be therapeutic for those with anxiety or depression.
Stress is one of the biggest causes of poor lymphatic health – it causes a chemical reaction in the body which results in lymph congestion. In fact, stress is the cause of approximately 80% of all chronic health issues.
Supporting your fitness
The Body Ballancer can reduce inflammation post-exercise.
Promoting a healthy gut
The importance of a healthy gut is now realised – connected to both physical and mental health, the gut can be seen as a ‘second brain’. The Body Ballancer lymphatic massage will boost your sluggish digestive system, discouraging the build-up of fats.
Getting rid of toxins
Our Body Ballancer will help to promote a healthy lymphatic system – this is vital for the elimination of waste and toxins that result from the body’s natural metabolic process.
Most people go through a period of time where they have overindulged, whether that be a summer holiday or just a time where you have had slipped back into bad habits, and so a course of Body Ballancer treatments will flush those toxins out and get you back on track.
Reducing fluid retention
Most women find that they carry excess fluid – whether it is due to a chronic, life-changing disease, or whether it is simply hormonal, warm weather or due to sitting for long periods of time at a desk or on a flight. The Body Ballancer will remove any excess fluid, instantly making you feel trimmer.
How does it work?
The Body Ballancer uses something called pressotherapy which is also known as compression therapy. The automated suit gently inflates to precise, pre-set pressures. It feels like you have a team of massage therapists massaging your body to flush out toxins, fluid retention and metabolic waste.
The pressure is caused by individual air chambers that overlap and apply compression strokes to every inch of your targeted area.The motion is specially directed to decongest problem areas and increase circulation.
What areas of my body can be treated?
The Body Ballancer system has two specialised garments – one for the upper body and one for the lower body. The trouser style garment treats the hips, thighs, lower leg and lower abdomen. The jacket-like garment treats the upper abdomen, back and arms.
How many treatments will I need?
You will be advised how many treatments you will need, depending on your issue. Skin tone and cellulite treatments can just take one course. The usual recommendation is 12 treatments over three to four weeks.
We use the Body Ballancer at Karidis because it is the only aesthetic pressotherapy system with a solid medical pedigree, with 35 years as the global market leader in medical compression therapy.
