Sleeping bag meets swaddle in this new detox treatment
Mumbai-based The Ageless Clinic, which has gathered quite the reputation for importing international aesthetic treatments soon after they surface in Hollywood—have you heard of the vampire facial?—has a new draw. The Body Ballancer® is a patented machine-based treatment that works on the principle of lymphatic drainage massage. All you need to do is step inside a sleeping bag-like contraption that gently squeezes you in a wave motion. Lounge spoke to Dr Harshna Bijlani, a celebrity skin expert and medical head of The Ageless Clinic, to understand how it works. Edited excerpts:
in your blood, improves circulation and increases lymphatic drainage. It is ideal for individuals who are looking to reduce water retention, bloating and cellulite to those who want to slim or detox. It also helps with stress relief and muscle relaxation.
The efficacy of a manual lymphatic massage, to a large extent, depends on the service provider. The Body Ballancer®, on the other hand, is a USFDA approved device and uses proven pressotherapy technology that works with the help of 24 individual air chambers per suit to ensure all your areas are taken care of. It’s a roughly 40- minute treatment that you can put on while getting yourself a facial.
There are various devices out there for fat loss but very few for water retention and bloating. This is a great fix for when you’re feeling bloated and want to get your body ready to fit into the perfect bodycon dress, which is a common concern for our patients.
Lymphatic drainage also plays an important part in aiding fat loss. In fact, it works great as a supplementary treatment for those individuals opting for fat reduction treatments...(most of these) treatments destroy fat cells which are eliminated from the body through lymphatic drainage. If your lymphatic drainage isn’t strong, these treatments may not be able to perform as well as they can. —AG
