The treatment itself involves mechanical vibration with a specific machine utilizing three changeable heads. The vibratory treatment pushes excess lymph up and through the major exit points, speeding up detoxification. Sensitive clients may experience some bruising and soreness, but this reporter did not experience such.
This service program requires commitment. It is also expensive, $1895. Suggestions include nothing to eat two-hours before the appointment and drinking eight ounces of water immediately after each session: 32 ounces daily while in treatment. Aerobic activity vs. anaerobic is suggested. Aerobic activity focuses on endurance activities such as running or cycling whereas anaerobic exercise focuses on short, strength-based exercises such as weight lifting.

As with all cellulite treatments, constant and assertive attention is required. If one is prone to cellulite, it is unlikely any treatment will have long-lasting effects.
