How Our Weight Loss Program Works
Fat accumulates in the body when the toxins we build up do not get eliminated fast enough relative to the amount and types of foods we eat.
For instance, it takes 6 hours for our digestive system to process 8 oz of red meat, but it takes the body 48 - 60 hours to remove the toxins generated by that same meal. As a result, the body directs those toxins to and stores them in fat cells, which lock up and grow over time.
The only way to reduce the fat cells is to remove the trapped toxins and release the good fat that is pure food and energy for the body. The body naturally detoxes from 8pm to 4am, but this is often insufficient, or interrupted, depending on our lifestyles and quality of sleep. That is why the detoxification preparation programs are an important component for overall weight loss. They help stimulate and prolong detoxification to supplement the body’s natural process.
If your weight loss goal involves losing more than 20 lbs., we recommend you consider a body shaping treatment, like UltraShape, VelaShape or InMode, and do so in conjunction with the body preparation program to remove toxins from the fat cells as much as possible. The 3-step process will yield the most effective results.
Hydro massage in our CARACALLA hydrotherapy tub has excellent deep-muscle effects because they are so precisely designed to match the contours of the body.
Our custom-made Austrian bath features 260 individual water nozzles and 50 dedicated air nozzles that produce intense pulsating massage, along with a water Detox solution, to stimulate and open fat cells and encourage drainage into the lymph stream. During 20-min. hydrotherapy session, ten different zones are treated covering 20 parts of the body, ranging from the soles of the feet up to the shoulders. It removes toxins from up to 5 ml deep on the body's surface.
The seaweed body wrap is an all-natural way to enhance and moisten your skin, decrease excess water weight from your body, detoxify and boost your metabolism.
At the beginning of the session, you rest on a solid cushion of air, which is the perfect foundation for a body wrap. Once the wrap has been applied, the cushion slowly releases air to lower you into a pleasantly heated water cushion. This enhances blood circulation and opens the pores of the skin, releasing toxic lymphatic substances from the lymph stream of your body.
Sharko Shower activates metabolism, improves blood and lymph circulation, relaxes nerves, eliminate headaches, improves sleep quality, and is used for the prevention and correction of cellulite.
A high-pressure water stream is applied for an extra-strong massage over the patient’s entire body. The device is administered from a distance of 8.5 – 10 feet and uses a water pressure of 1.5-3 atmospheres and water at a temperature of 60° – 68 °F. Sharko attacks fat cell packets, making them smaller, and increasing blood and lymph circulation.
