CUTS WORKOUT TIME IN HALF Perhaps the biggest non-health related benefit of using vibration plates is the fact that they can cut workout times in half. The vibrations that these machines generate cause anywhere from 30 to 50 muscle reflexes per second. As a result, vibration training can recruit up to 100% of your muscles’ fibers. This is in contrast to traditional resistance training exercises that engage only 40% to 60% of your muscles’ capacity. Ultimately, vibration plates intensify workouts so that you can get more done in less time during your strength training sessions. Some manufacturers claim that a 10-minute session on their machines can deliver the same intensity as an hour of conventional exercise. While this may be true, it will depend on the frequency and amplitude that one chooses to work with while exercising on a vibration plate. For the best possible results, most fitness experts recommend at least a 15 to 30 minute session of vibration training three to four times a week.
STRENGTHENS AND TONES MUSCLES As mentioned earlier, vibration plates cause the muscles to contract and relax at a great rate per second than what they normally would during normal forms of exercises. Therefore, performing dynamic strength training exercises like lunges, squats, tricep dips, and push-ups on a vibrating plate will help build and tone muscles. By sending vibrations to the body at varying degrees of intensity, the body uses up muscle tissue to generate strength. This stimulates muscle growth to meet energy demands, which then causes your muscles to become dense with time. This is why vibration plates are used in rehabilitation therapy to build damaged muscle without the need for weight bearing exercises. Many studies are in support of the fact that this training modality creates gains in muscle power and strength.
BUILDS STRONGER BONES It has been found that the vibrations generated by a vibration plate can help increase bone mineral density. Having stronger bones does have its own advantages, especially for people who suffer from certain diseases. For instance, ensuring that the body has adequate bone density helps to stave off osteoporosis. One study published in the “Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise Journal” showed evidence that vibration training helped postmenopausal women to increase lumbar bone mineral density and leg strength.
IMPROVES FLEXIBILITY, BALANCE AND COORDINATION Vibration plate movements increase your range of motion beyond what can be achieved with static stretching. As you stand or perform dynamic workouts on a vibration plate, this engages your core and hip flexors to stabilize your entire body. Hence, your balance, coordination, and stability improve with time. In addition, the vibrations sent to your body strengthen the muscles that stabilize your joints. This in turn helps to improve flexibility and joint function.
RAISES METABOLISM AND BOOSTS FAT BURNING POTENTIAL Whole body vibration training raises your metabolism just like any other form of exercise. As your muscles use more fuel and get stronger, you’ll have more energy. An increased metabolism also increases your weight loss potential in addition to helping your body burn fat more efficiently.
STIMULATES PRODUCTION OF HELPFUL HORMONES Because whole body vibrations use up muscle tissues, they encourage your body to produce increased levels of human growth hormone (HGH) to repair and regenerate damaged muscles and bone tissue. Your body will also reduce production of cortisol (the hormone responsible for stress) and produce more serotonin (the hormone that induces feelings of happiness and well-being). This explains why many people sleep better after starting whole body vibration training as their workout routine.
IMPROVES IMMUNE FUNCTION AND BLOOD CIRCULATION The high levels at which muscles contract during vibration plate training causes the blood to circulate more around your body while at the same time stimulate the lymph glands. Increased flow of lymph fluid through the body will help to strengthen your immune function. On the other hand, better blood circulation will ensure that every cell in your body receives adequate oxygen and nutrients. Other benefits of whole body vibration training include decreasing spinal pain, improving posture and reducing cellulite by stimulating collagen production. Like any other exercise, the results that you’ll get from whole body vibration training will largely depend on your eating habits. If you want to get the best results when using vibration plates for exercise, make sure to watch your diet. By eating healthy food and sticking to a regular workout regimen, it only takes a few weeks to see the gains that come from using vibration plates as part of your strength training or weight loss workouts.
INFRA SLIM BODY CONTOURING SYSTEM
- This process, combined with the pressure therapy, helps move the fat into the lymphatic system and to the liver, where it is metabolized by the body and discharged via bowel movements, perspiration, urine, and other forms of detoxification.
- The pressure is designed to simulate a massage that uses enough pressure to reach below the surface of the skin. In infrared pressure therapy each cuff of the suit will fill with air, sending a light pressure and increasing circulation to all areas of the body. This system of compression and decompression duplicates the action of massage.
When combined with infrared heat, the benefits include:
- Improved circulation and reduction of edema
- Relief of numbness or pain (neuropathy)
- Enhancement of skin tone
- Slimming and firming of the entire body
- Reduction of cellulite
- Lose 3-5 inches in only 3 treatments
What is happening during an Infra-Slim Body Contouring session?
- The Infra-Slim suit emits infrared heat and soft pressure therapy.
- Infrared heat will cause the fat cells to expand and empty, which increases the metabolism of the fat cells.
- Infrared heat increases circulation, which in turn will cause fat cells to break up causing Lipolysis.
- Pressure therapy helps the transport of fat to the lymphatic system and releases the fluid to the liver and kidneys to be excreted.
Contraindications for the Infra-Slim Body suit:
- Do not use if pregnant or lactating
- Do not use if you have a pace-maker or congestive heart failure
- Do not use if you have kidney failure
- Do not use if you are in a weakened or frail condition
Infra-Slim Body Contouring SystemInfra Slim Body Contouring is a relaxing non-invasive, detoxifying treatment which takes approximately 35 minutes to perform, and produces effective and thorough lymphatic drainage to promote the body’s natural toxin eliminating functions. The process also allows for the revitalization and oxygenation of the tissues to alim and define areas of the legs, arms and stomach while enhancing elasticity and overall skin tone. The system works by providing heat and pressure to simulate a deep tissue massage to reach below the surface of the skin. The Infra Slim suit is designed with a series of chambers which fill with air providing areas of pressure to increase circulation.
Benefits of the Infra Slim Body Contouring systemWhen combined with infrared heat, benefits include:
- Slimming and firming of the entire body

Infrared Body Wrap
- Simultaneously, the deep penetrating heat will help relieve chronic pain, improve joint mobility he and increase blood circulation. Unlike traditional body wraps, the infrared body wrap does not use mud or liquids and does not even require you to remove your clothing.
What is infrared heat therapy?Infrared therapy is defined as the use of "infrared" as by infrared lamps for heating pads to relieve pain and increase circulation to particular areas of the body. To better understand infrared therapy, we have to have a better understanding of what type of infrared rays we are speaking about. Infrared heat is a form of energy that is produced by the sun. Infrared divides into three infrared waves: near or close, middle or intermediate, and far or long. Infrared waves are safe and have used in the infrared body wraps and most other infrared light used on humans. Infrared light cannot be seen by the human eye, but we know that infrared is penetrating by feeling the warmth of our skin. When experiencing the body wrap, you'll notice that your body begins to feel like it is warming from the inside out, and that's when you begin to detox!
The benefits from an infrared body wrap include:
DetoxificationTocsin such as sodium, alcohol, nicotine, cholesterol, and carcinogenic heavy metals accumulate in the body during modern daily life. The body even lemonades most toxins naturally my sweating but the process is sometimes slow. Infrared heat therapy stimulates the sweat glands that cleanse and detox if I have a skin. The infrared heat Technology simply speeds up the body's natural process! Because infrared heat quotes the body from the inside out at about 1 1/2 to 2 inches deep into the skin. Infrared body wrap encourages detoxification of accumulated toxins and metallic wastes through sweating. It is important to drink water before and during the infrared body wrap and to replenish electrolytes after using infrared, because the infrared body wrap can help the body read it self up excess fluids that prevent the body functioning at its optimal levels. Sweating is the natural way for the body to heal and stay healthy. Infrared rays provide a person with a deep sweat and cleansing of the skin because it penetrates at about 1 to 2 inches deep and pushes the toxins out through this wedding process.
Pain relief/muscle sorenessThe deep heat helps peripheral blood vessels to dilate, bringing the relief and healing to muscle and soft tissue injuries. Infrared heat register soreness on nerve endings and muscle spasms as muscle joints and fibers are heated. Many people who experience infrared heat penetrating joint, muscles and tissues, also promote better oxygen flow and circulation of blood flow. Those who suffer from arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia would benefit from infrared heat therapy. In general, and all degenerative illness of the acute or chronic inflammation type that support the bodies in motion system, improve considerably with infrared therapy sessions.
Relaxation and stress reductionInfrared heat therapy loosen the muscles and relaxes the body. It has been studied the infrared heat helps the body to maintain healthy levels of cortisol. We have all heard about court is all and how it is the number one cause of belly fat. Court is all is a hormone that is produced by the body and rises when we are stressed out and raises the heart rate and blood pressure leading to the deposit of excess fat and weight in the midsection. So taking 30 minute session three times a week can I help you relax and reduce the effects of excess cortisol.
Weight lossBecause infrared helps to rev up the metabolism increase bloodflow it only makes sense that when the body is operating in a more optimal manner that it is able to help those who use infrared heat to lose weight. I helping the body to burn many calories. (Up to 1400) Per 50 minute infrared body wrap session, it is revving the metabolism with the calorie burn and, therefore, supports the body fat reduction which leads to weight loss. And infrared body wrap can I help with weight loss by simply speeding up the metabolism process of vital organs and can result in substantial calories being used in one infrared wrap treatment. Perspiring/sweating is part of the complex thermoregulatory process of the body that increases the heart rate, cardiac output, and metabolic rate. That becomes water-soluble at 110°F and then allows the body to sweat out that's intoxicants infrared weight loss is different for everyone. As every individual is different, fat loss from an infrared body wrap will depend upon the body structure of that person. So the greater the excess weight someone has, the faster and more dramatic results will be seen. Some people may not experience a great week last, but will see an improved body appearance I losing inches or dress sizes. Extremely physically fit people that don't carry excess weight or inches can experience is much improved muscle tone and have a tendency to begin to sweat faster than those who are less active. Because of this, the more physically active a person is, the greater the benefits that can be achieved from an infrared body wrap. A less active person may take longer to see results as their body must grow accustomed to the infrared heat wrap. Of course if a client who is using infrared body wrap then eats or drinks excessively, most of the results from the infrared body wrap treatment will be lost and weight regain. Common sense tells us that as with any body treatment or system to help want to attain a better physical appearance, one must adjust their nutritional needs. Ideally, infrared body wraps will be most beneficial for those who eat healthy and exercise regularly. Clients that relieve a very sedentary lifestyle can still achieve great results, but will require a longer period of time. They must also adjust their exercise and eating habits to obtain their desired results. In our experience using the infrared body wrap on our clients provide a body reduction of at least one size in approximately 6 to 10 infrared body wrap treatments and allowing a 2 to 3 day span between each treatment. Although these are the standard results we have experienced and I have seen, results really are different on every person and dependent upon their body type and lifestyle. If you are looking to lose weight, then an infrared body wrap maybe the key to your success. It has been shown that 30 minute sessions can actually burn up to 600 cal and up to 1400 cal for a 50 minute session. When the body temperature is raised by heat of any kind, our bodies need to cool itself down. In doing so our heat rate increases as well as our metabolic rate, which causes the body to burn calories. Using the infrared is a simple and relaxing treatment to help with those extra pounds many of us are caring around.
Improves the immune systemInfrared heat raise your core body temperature, including an artificial fever. Fever is the body's natural mechanism to strengthen and accelerate the immune response, as seen in the case of infection. The enhanced immune system, combined with improved ease lamination of toxins and waste the intense wedding, increases your overall health and resistance to disease. Most illnesses are accompanied by fever. During a fever the body heats up to illuminate viruses and attack foreign agents. Often misunderstood, this rise in temperature is a natural stage of the immune system's healing process and is one of the best ways to read the body of chemicals and unwelcome visitors. The immune system weekends a hold of the viruses and bacteria growth. Infrared rays heat therapy in deuces and "artificial fever" why heating up the body that without the pains of an illness. Subsequently, the body wards off invading organisms much more easily because the immune system is activated consistently by the "artificial fever".Recent studies also show that colds and flu like illness is a reduced dramatically if treated in the early stages of infrared heat therapy.
Increase blood circulationThe body is also working hard to cool itself down by sweating this building up the caloric burn and a rise in heat rate which increases blood circulation the heat receives a workout similar to a 6 mile run in a 50 minute infrared session and the body perspires the same i'm out as a 6 mile run. Infrared heat is perfect for those that do not have time for a regular exercise or suffer from injuries that inhibit rigorous activity. Infrared heat therapy helps the body to carry off metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen-rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles, so they recover faster. Using the infrared body wrap between workouts is great when you are just too tired and sore from the gym. You will not only recover from sore muscles but also get a fat burning, calorie burning workout during your rap all while laying down in your own private room.
Diminish the appearance of celluliteCellulite is a common term used to describe superficial pockets of trapped fat, which causes uneven dimpling or "orange peel" skin. Cellulite occurs in the subcutaneous fat layer just beneath your skin. Your skin is connected to the underlying muscles by vertical strands of tissue. The combination of this connective tissue pulling in on your skin and fatty deposits and five roses pushing out against your skin caused the dimpled appearance of cellulite. Since infrared radiant heat warms three times deeply as conventional Sonos, it is significantly more effective at reducing cellulite.
Diminish the appearance of blemishes and acneAfter having him for a treatment you will begin to notice that your skin is becoming clear and cleaner. You will also notice a difference in the tone of your skin and it's elasticity and also appearance of wrinkles and crows feet. The sweat that occurs during the session is causing the skin to clean itself. This helps the body to purge impurities clearing the pores and dead skin cells, leaving a skin clean baby soft feeling to your skin.
Skin rejuvenationDirt, chemicals, and dead cells on the surface of the skin or removed. All of these benefits lead to softer and from complexion. Using infrared improve circulation, cleanses the antones, as well as improves the skins elasticity. Infrared body wraps can actually help restore scan to a more youthful appearance.
Radio Frequency Skin Tightening Treatment

The current causes cauterization to the root by cutting off blood supply, effectively killing and destroying the abnormal growth without damaging the surrounding tissues. This process may need to be treated more than once to get the best results you are looking for.
Ultrasound Cavitation is a relatively new aesthetic treatment. Using leading edge technology it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system. When the treatment of ultrasound cavitation is followed by a lymphatic drainage the process is faster, as the drainage is very effective at eliminating liquids. 72 hours must pass between each session.
Do you have tough areas of fat that just won’t go away? Love Handles? We can help!
What is Ultrasound Cavitation?
Ultrasound Cavitation is a relatively new aesthetic treatment. Using leading edge technology it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system. Generally one fat cavitation treatment lasts 25 – 30 minutes where a single part of the body is treated. 72 hours must pass between each session so that the body can eliminate the fat. The minimum suggested number of fat cavitation sessions is between 6 and 10.
Which are the areas where treatment is more effective?
All those areas with localized fat: thighs, abdomen, flanks, and buttocks are the most popular but there is no real limitation as to areas of the body.
How does Ultrasound Cavitation work?
Our therapist will apply a specially designed hand piece to your skin. The hand piece will then transmit low level ultrasonic waves which consist of compression – expansion impulses that travel in high-speed cycles. This back and forth cycle then causes an infinite quantity of micro-cavities or micro-bubbles that gradually enlarge. This progressive enlargement finishes as micro-bubbles start to collide and implode, producing shock waves that favor emulsification and elimination of fat tissues (this phenomena is called “cavitation”). The liquid is then easily vacuumed out from the body using the lymphatic and urinary system.
Is ultrasound cavitation painful and safe?
No, cavitation is a painless treatment. Mild redness may appear occasionally but will be highly unlikely to cause any actual pain. The heat from the hand pieces felt during the treatment is perfectly tolerable. This treatment is a nonsurgical procedure without anesthesia – it’s non-invasive (no cutting, leaves no scars or the need for any post-operative course) and no downtime should be experienced after the treatment.
Can you lose weight with ultrasonic cavitation?
Cavitation is not a method to lose weight but to reshape the body. It is particularly indicated for the reduction of adiposity, the famous “love handles” that won’t go away with diet and exercise. Treatments remove cellulite preventing fat cells from recurring in the treated areas, without damaging the vascular system.
Fat is a solid substance right? How can it be eliminated through the urine?
Because ultrasound cavitation causes an emulsification of fat, converting it into a substance easy to eliminate through the urinary and the lymphatic system.
What do I need to do before my treatments?
We recommend a low calorie diet and drink at least 1.5 litres of water before and after the session. Drinking water is a necessary part in order to eliminate the fat. Regular exercise such as walking or other aerobic activities should also be maintained in order to help the system to naturally process the fat after the treatment.
Number of treatments and treatment frequency for each area?
Ultrasound Cavitation: 6–10 treatments spaced 1-2 weeks apart per specific area
Advantages over other treatments
- Non invasive treatment
- No need for hospitalization nor anesthesia
- No scars nor long term marking of the skin
- Very little discomfort
- Elimination of the fat through a natural process
- 20-60 min per session
Preparation before each treatment:
Drink at least 1.5 to 2 liters of water a day a week before your treatment. Choose an area you wanted to treat and start moisturizing that area thoroughly everyday and at night. Hydration will help make the treatment a lot more successful.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I get Ultrasonic Cavitation?
Traditional weight loss methods (dieting), leave your body feeling like it’s starving, which causes the body to go into “conservation mode”. This means that your metabolism slows down and your body starts using it’s energy more efficiently, making it harder for you to shed fat and pounds. When the diet is over and the weight starts creeping back on, your body will pack on a few extra pounds to store up for the next time it anticipates a famine. By contrast, Ultrasonic Cavitation doesn’t cause the body to “panic”, and it won’t fight against you by working so hard to hold on to it’s fat reserves. The fat is eliminated naturally, being processed by your body’s own filtration system. Compared to surgical methods (gastric bypass, lap band, liposuction, etc), there is no scarring, no bleeding, no risk of infection, no pain, no downtime for recovery and, in most cases, Ultrasonic Cavitation is much more affordable. Compared to fat-freezing and laser fat removal procedures (such as iLipo, Zerona and SmartLipo), results are more immediate and there is absolutely no pain or downtime.
Other reasons: Obesity increases physical stress and stress-related pain, takes up to 10 years off your life expectancy, is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease and is associated with type 2 diabetes (the most common type.) Obesity lowers your self-esteem, motivation and overall productivity, which can result in laziness, depression, lack of career success and more obesity. Achieving an appropriate level of body fat will result in better health, fewer aches & pains, less stress, better quality sleep, more energy, fewer health-related expenses, better self-esteem, less need for medical treatment and prescription drugs, better moods, healthier relationships and more satisfying sex.
How does Ultrasonic Cavitation work?
The Ultrasonic Cavitation machine uses high-frequency sound waves to disrupt the fat cell walls, which causes the fat cells to “leak” their contents into the fluid spaces of your body. From there, your lymph system picks up this waste material (the loose fat) and begins circulating it through your body until it can be processed by the liver and eliminated with sweat, urine and feces. The results are visibly noticeable immediately, however the entire process can take several days, and you will continue to experience results during this time.
Who can get Ultrasonic Cavitation treatments?
The best candidates for Ultrasonic fat removal are healthy men and women who are moderately overweight, wishing to lose between 5-50 pounds. You are NOT a good candidate if you are pregnant or nursing, taking anticoagulants, if you have a pacemaker or metal implants or if you have keloids, recent surgeries or severe health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer or tumors, epilepsy, abnormally high or low blood pressure, hemophilia, thromboisis, phlebitis, turberculosis, current infection or infectious disease, immunodeficiencies or a compromised lymph system. If you have any doubt as to whether you are healthy enough to receive treatments, you should consult with your physician first.
How quickly will I begin to see results?
You should notice a measurable difference immediately after your first treatment, with the most dramatic difference observable 72 hours after each treatment.
How much result can I expect after each treatment?
Results with Ultrasonic Cavitation will vary depending on how long the fat has existed, how dense it is, how hydrated you are, how well your lymph is circulating, etc. Immature, light and “fluffy” fat is much easier to eliminate than mature, dense fat, and thin lymph fluid will yield more rapid results than thick, viscous fluid.
Preparing for your waxing treatment
It is important to follow a few basic steps when you prepare for a waxing service.
First, of course, you should not get waxed if you suffer from psoriasis or other skin conditions, or if you take Retinol or Accutane. If you are unsure, ask your physician whether you can go ahead with getting waxed.
- If you are using any chemical exfoliants such as Glycolic Acid (AHA’s), Salicylic Acid (AHA’s), or Retin A it is important for you to not use these products 4-5 days prior to your waxing treatment.
- The hair needs to be 1/4 inch or more in length.
- Take an advil or ibuprofen ½ to 1 hour prior to your appointment to help with discomfort
- Avoid swimming or sun tanning for a full 24 hours prior to getting waxed
Post waxing treatment
To ensure maximum comfort and benefit after the treatment, it is important to follow the steps below at home.
- Avoid applying heat to the waxed area for 12 to 24 hours. This includes hot baths, sauna, and steam.
- Avoid exercise or sweating for 24 hours this could irritate the area and encourage bacteria
- Avoid sun tanning for 12 to 24 hours.
- Avoid applying highly fragrance products to the waxed area. This includes, perfume, scented body lotions, antiperspirants, cosmetics, or feminine hygiene sprays.
- Avoid using harsh abrasive or exfoliates in the waxed area. However if you are prone to in grown hairs, the day after your waxing treatment, exfoliate newly waxed area with a loofah to avoid future problems.
- Avoid applying high SPF sun blocks to the waxed area for 12-24 hours after the waxing service. Sunscreen chemicals can be irritating to the newly waxed skin. This includes self-tanning products and tan accelerators.
- Any pinking of the skin should disappear within 6 to 8 hours after the waxing treatment. Slight pinking is normal, and indicates that the hair was removed from the root, rather than superficially broken off, as in shaving. This is the reason that professional waxing lasts so much longer.
First, of course, you should not get waxed if you suffer from psoriasis or other skin conditions, or if you take Retinol or Accutane. If you are using any chemical exfoliants such as Glycolic Acid (AHA’s), Salicylic Acid (AHA’s), or Retin A it is important for you to not use these products 4-5 days prior to your waxing. The hair needs to be 1/4 inch or more in length. -Take an advil or ibuprofen ½ to 1 hour prior to your treatment for comfort. No swimming or Tanning 24 hr prior to treatment.
