Ring in the New Year! Why Your Spa Should Offer an Endermologie Treatment in 2019

Offer Endermologie Treatments in 2019

Are you looking for new services for your spa to start offering in the new year? Read more to learn why endermologie treatment is a worth considering.

Cellulitis is an unpleasant side effect of aging and weight gain for many men and women.

Cellulite is caused by fat cells beneath the skin, which trap toxins and hold in water. Luckily, the FDA has recently approved a treatment that can help treat (but not get rid of) cellulite.

Endermologie is a cellulite treatment that uses a mechanical massage to increase circulation and make the skin firmer, temporarily reducing cellulite. As it was only recently approved by the FDA, endermologie is not yet widely offered.

Here’s why your spa should offer endermologie treatment in 2019.

Improve Client Confidence

Cellulitis is a skin condition that many people around the world have and are looking to get rid of, so they can increase their body confidence.

This is a great opportunity to help improve your client’s confidence in their body’s.

As a spa, you already provide services that help to relieve tension and improve wellness. With endermologie, you are providing a treatment that can keep your patients feeling good. And, who better to make feel good than new mothers, who are among the most common endermologie patients!

Increase Client Loyalty

Most patients receiving endermologie treatments will do up to 6-10 treatments for an hour at a time, taking place over several months. These constant client returns should be music to your ears, as returning clients mean a great investment.

You may even be able to increase your overall revenue with your clients continuously coming back for treatments. With endermologie being a relatively affordable process, your customers may look to pursue other services that will help them feel even better, driving up sales for your spa.

Help Relaxation

If you’re looking to sell relaxation as part of your spa experience, endermologie is a must-have for you. With the deep tissue massage that an endermologie treatment uses, your clients will be especially relaxed compared to other treatments.

Potential for Packaging

While endermologie is typically a treatment that is offered on its own, it has huge packaging potential. You can offer endermologie treatments along with other services you may have. You can easily use endermologie to fit into a stress-reduction or body-positivity theme.

Exciting Novel Idea

Endermologie is a new trend that was only recently approved by the FDA but has been used in other countries for many years. There is no doubt that the market for it will soon take off.

It’s best to be ahead of the curve where you can, and endermologie is a terrific opportunity for that.

Incorporating Endermologie Treatment at Your Spa

If your spa doesn’t already offer endermologie treatment, you should jump on the trend soon! It will benefit your clients’ well-being and will make sure that your spa is better off. Endermologie’s potential is unmatched as it is a proven solution for a problem so many people have.

How to Avoid the Thanksgiving Weight Gain

As much as we all love the holidays, we dread the almost inevitable weight gain that comes from Thanksgiving. Here’s what to eat on Thanksgiving to stay healthy

With the holidays fast approaching, you’re likely looking forward to spending some quality time with the family. Gathering around the table and enjoying a massive feast is a time-honored tradition that warms your heart as much as it warms your belly.

But before you reach for that second helping of sweet potato casserole, there’s something you should know. As it turns out, most people gain between seven and 10 pounds throughout the holiday season, meaning it’s all too easy to reverse healthy progress you’ve made throughout the year.

Don’t worry, you can still enjoy a family feast without overdoing it! Here’s a quick guide on what to eat on Thanksgiving without gaining weight.

Load up on Veggies

If your Thanksgiving meal is anything like ours, it probably features dish upon dish of fresh, delicious roasted vegetables.

Well, we have some good news! You can eat as many delicious veggies as you’d like without any of the guilt as long as your veggies aren’t filled with additives like butter and salt.

From Brussels sprouts to green beans to salad, there are tons of tasty ways to fill up without filling out. And not only are baked or roasted veggies tasty, but they’re great for you, too.

Take sweet potatoes, for instance. A single serving of roasted sweet potatoes nets about 180 calories and is chock full of Vitamins A and C, as well as calcium.

Avoid Turkey Terror

Don’t worry, we’re not about to tell you to skip the turkey. In fact, turkey is one of the best possible things to eat on Thanksgiving.

Turkey is full of protein and Vitamin-B 6. When combined with a plate filled with veggies, you have yourself a healthy meal that tastes great, to boot!

Know What to Avoid

Unfortunately, not all Thanksgiving delicacies are as healthy as turkey or vegetables. As a result, there are a few foods you’ll want to avoid.

It’s easy to go overboard on alcoholic beverages, for instance. Try to stick to one or two drinks, as alcohol is filled with a surprising amount of sugar.

Sadly, gravy, stuffing, and canned cranberry sauce are two of the worst offenders, as well. While turkey isn’t quite the same without them, both are loaded with sugars and fat and are ultimately empty calories.

Dessert can be dangerous for those attempting to reduce the appearance of cellulite, too. Have fun and enjoy your pie, but try and take a smaller piece.

Post-Meal Tips

Though most Thanksgiving fare is loaded with tryptophan, a chemical that causes tiredness and fatigue, you’re encouraged to avoid a post-meal nap.

Instead, take a walk around the block with a family member. Moving after a meal is a great way to boost your metabolism and work off any extra calories you ingested.

Book Your endermologie® Appointment

It’s human to feel like you could tone up a little after indulging in delicious foods and wines all weekend. Especially when you still have family in town, it can be hard to keep up your usual workout regimen. It’s no holiday miracle that you can book an endermologie® treatment to help you get back to your pre-thanksgiving body. Extensive research has shown that body endermologie® helps to tone and improve the skin’s radiance, while reducing the appearance of cellulite, so you’ll be sure to be feeling great and refreshed after your post-thanksgiving treatment.

Backed by more than 145 studies, LPG® is the first device ever cleared by the FDA for the reduction in the appearance of cellulite. These studies have proven the following:

Results from the latest body technology scientific study1:

  • 70% increase in fat release (lipolysis)

Final Thoughts on What to Eat on Thanksgiving

With these tips on what to eat on Thanksgiving, you can indulge in all of your favorites without going overboard or losing the progress you’ve made with regular endermologie® treatments.

5 Tips for Toning Your Body at Forty

Losing weight at 40

A lot of things change about our bodies as we get older – our muscle mass decreases, our metabolism slows and we can’t always exercise the way we used to.

The key to losing weight and toning your body is not to starve yourself, try a fad diet or exercise an unhealthy amount. Making small, sustainable changes will add up to big weight loss and toning over time. By making small changes you can realistically keep, you’ll keep the weight off and your life won’t turn into a constant dieting cycle.

Trying to tone your body after pregnancy or with long work hours isn’t impossible, but you might need to make some lifestyle changes or seek help from a professional treatment. Here are six habits to adopt right now, to help you tone your body over forty:

Don’t Skip Meals

You might be tempted to skip meals when you’re not hungry in order to cut out more calories from your day. This can be a big mistake, however, as cutting meals can mess with your metabolism.

Your body likes routine, so try to get on a regular eating schedule. Skipping meals can also cause your blood sugar to drop rapidly, which can leave you ravenously hungry later in the day and make you reach for unhealthy snacks.

Figure Out Your Calorie Needs

There are tons of diets out there that claim to do things differently, but the science of weight loss is simple: you need to burn more calories than you consume. In order to do this, you need to determine exactly what your calorie needs are.

There are plenty of online calculators to help you determine this, or consult a dietician or doctor if you think you have a substantial amount of weight to lose.

Try Endermologie ® Treatments

Toning at a later age can be difficult, so sometimes you need assistance from a treatment like Endermologie ®. Extensive research has shown that body Endermologie® helps to tone and improve the skin’s radiance, while reducing the appearance of cellulite. It only requires 15-35 minutes and results are usually seen within 2-3 weeks. It’s completely natural, non-invasive, and has no side effects.

Stay Active

As we get older, it seems life gets busier and busier. Between going to work, picking up the kids from school, and cooking dinner, there never seems to be enough time in the day. Even if it’s a quick walk around the block before the family wakes up or taking your little ones for a neighborhood bike ride, staying active is important for maintaining a good metabolism.

Reduce Stress Eating with Meditation

Stress eating is something many adults struggle with, so reducing stress should be a top priority when you’re dieting and trying to tone. This is easier said than done, but studies have shown that meditating can help reduce stress.

It only takes five minutes or less per day and it can make a big difference in your stress level.

Still Having Trouble Losing Weight?

If you still can’t tone your body the way you want, it might be time to seek a professional treatment like Endermologie ®. We offer the revolutionary Endermologie® treatment to help you reduce the appearance of cellulite, tone the skin, and more.

Endermologie can help you get the body you’ve always wanted at any age. Find a center near you to start your journey with Endermologie®.

Top Celebrities Share Their Body Image Experiences

During the days when movie studios controlled every aspect of an actress’s life, celebrities rarely, if ever, spoke candidly about their lifestyles, diets, or exercise and beauty regimens beyond what was approved (and usually filmed) by the studio. Any type of plastic surgery or even non-invasive treatments beyond the occasional product or business endorsement were not only well-hidden, but forbidden to discuss. Even pregnancies were rarely mentioned until after the fact. Continue reading
