I want... a trimmer tummy

The ES-wave Advance treatment is a medically approved therapy that uses a high tech-looking gun to deliver shock waves.

They are supposed to destroy and melt fat cells. It sounds painful, but it felt like gentle patting; I could actually feel the waves penetrating my skin.

This treatment was followed by a blissful Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) massage, which stimulates the lymph system, and removes toxins, excess water and waste products from the body.

My therapist started from my face and moved towards my legs, applying just the right amount of pressure on vital points. I fell asleep and woke up feeling refreshed.

The MLD and the ES-wave Advance make a perfect pair, my therapist explained.

The shock wave therapy breaks down the fat cells and the MLD helps to drain them away.

I lost 2.5 inches! But the real bliss came two days later, when my tummy got over feeling bruised. It felt like I had a good workout. I felt energetic and my digestion improved. – R.L.
