When I lost almost 25 kg in a year, I had a problem with loose and sagging skin on my stomach and thighs. And I wanted to return the old elasticity and smoothness! Yes, and cellulite after birth has become much more noticeable. Everything else I still had fat deposits on the waist and sides, which by no means wanted to leave.
To solve my problem, I went online and typed in the search engine questions that concern me. And then the computer gave me that everything is easily solved with the help of a hardware massage called LPG. I decided to find out what kind of beast it is in more detail.
What is LPG massage?
As I found out, the principle of massage is based on the effect on the skin and the subcutaneous layer of vacuum and rollers. That is, the body is carried out with a special nozzle with two rollers, one of which captures the skin, and the second smoothes, and a vacuum acts between the rollers.
Judging by the reviews, this process promised to be painless and even pleasant. The results were supposed to please, because LPG-massage is designed to save me from:
– local fat deposits (my hateful ears)
– reduce the appearance of cellulite
– tighten and smooth the skin
– remove puffiness
– remove toxins from the body
In general, not a procedure, but a fairy tale. And I decided. Prices in the salons, however, bite – 1500-2000 per procedure. For me it was a little expensive. Therefore, I found a coupon on the website with discounts and purchased 10 massage sessions in the salon nearest to my house for only 450 rubles for one procedure.
How I went for LPG-massage
When I came to the salon, the first thing I was asked to do was to purchase a special suit for a massage. It looks like white nylon pantyhose, but on the whole body – from neck to legs. The costume is needed in order to:
1. Massager clips easier to slide over the body.
2. For hygiene purposes.
The costume cost 900 rubles. I was also advised to apply any anti-cellulite cream on the body before the next procedure for greater effect. And do not eat two hours before and after the procedure and drink as much liquid as possible.
I put on a suit and lay down on the massage table. And so they began to drive me with rollers and massage first the legs, then the hips, the ass, the sides, the stomach, the back and the arms.
At first it was quite tolerable, but then it really hurt. I asked to reduce the impact force, then do it even lower … and more, since it was very painful for me! At the end, the massage therapist already told me what she was doing at the very minimum power, and that I just have very sensitive skin.
In general, after the first session, I even regretted that I bought 10 procedures at once, but did not try one at first. The whole body was bruised … But, strangely enough, after three days I came again (yes, out of greed, I feel sorry for the money spent!).
The master was different this time. I had already prepared for another thirty-minute torture, but, oh, a miracle, it did not hurt me at all! Even nice.
The masseur drove the nozzle very smoothly and carefully. I even asked her if she was giving me a massage at the weakest power. It turned out no, the power is average.
That is, pain (and certainly the effect of the procedure) is 90% dependent on the specialist who does the massage! The remaining 8 sessions, I went only to her.
The effect of LPG massage
The effect was very good. The skin really tightened up, cellulite disappeared from the abdomen (it was so easy not to expel it from the hips), the waist was cut.
Of course, simultaneously with the massage during this month, I followed a diet, did physical exercises and, most likely, all together gave a positive result.
The masseur said that to maintain the effect it would be nice to repeat the course in six months or a year. So it is quite possible that I will go to LPG procedures again soon.
