New revolutionary methods that melt away unwanted fat and cellulite
TLymphatic Drainage Air Presso Massage, combined with body wrapping, has been Joanna’s signature slimming treatment since 1993. I have provided this treatment in my clinic for the last 14 years, helping to improve the self image of many thousands of satisfied clients.
Beauty visionaries, research and my own experience have driven me one step further, to combine old and new methods into innovative procedures.
The new treatment combination is based on the solid history of performance of Lymphatic Drainage Air Presso Massage, but now adds the benefit of the Dermosonic® Method.
The Dermosonic ® treats the appearance and tone of the skin by targeting the dermis and subdermis for exceptional cellulite removal, localised fat reduction, body contouring and skin smoothing.
What can the latest weapon in anti-cellulite and body contouring technology, do for you?
Dermosonic® combines two medically proven synergistic therapies, Ultrasound and Non-Invasive Subdermal Therapy (N I ST), In order to achieve good results, Dermosonic® combines these therapies in two treatment stages:
Stage 1: ULTRASOUND (U/S)
Ultrasound (3 Mhz – 3 million cycles per second) – enhances the disintegration of fats and promotes the breakdown of fibrous tissue that encapsulates each cellulite nodule, increases absorption of local edema (swelling), improves blood circulation and prepares tissue for the next step.
Stage 2: Non Invasive Subdermal Therapy (NIST)
N.I.S.T. – Computer programmed rolling and suction massage mobilizes and eliminates fatty deposits, stimulates circulation, promotes the absorption and drainage of retained fluids and toxins and improves the overall elasticity and quality of the skin.
According to the individual sensitivity test in each follow- up treatment, the clients can comfortably handle the progressively increased suction of the massage heads, due to build up of tissue strength and elasticity.
Lymphatic Drainage Air Presso Massage is an additional and final step to Dermosonic® treatment. The performance of Lymphatic Drainage Air Presso-Massage has earned a reputation for the last 14 years as easy and efficient way for toxins removal, resulting in a significant inch loss and has now been improved upon with this combined method.
The Lymphatic Drainage Air Presso Massage gives you a long lasting effect on your blood circulation and will eliminate all the toxins that have been mobilised from your fatty tissues during the Dermosonic® treatment. Residual toxins will be excreted from your body naturally via the kidneys and bladder. Check out your urine after each treatments session; it often smells strong and can have a different color than usual. The more offensive the smell, the more toxins have been excreted from your body.
Dermosonic® and Lymphatic Drainage Air Presso- Massage complement and boost each other and offer long lasting results in anti-cellulite therapy.
I will give you a free initial consultation and video demonstration. Most people receive two treatments a week. It will depend on the extent of your cellulite, how many treatments you need. Dermosonic® is a medical grade treatment in conjunction with eating properly and drinking lots of water; it is great for women and men to remove local fat deposits from the stomach, thighs, love handles, and even the flabby parts we all accumulate on our arms.
I encourage everybody who is looking to make improvements to their body this summer, to give these fantastic European treatments a try.
Tip # 1: Avoid over-processed food.
The most dangerous ingredients in conventional food
1) Sodium nitrite- a red color maker chemical, used to make meats appear red. Widely found in processed meats, such as hot dogs, sausages, mince and bacon. Scientists have found that this chemical causes cancer.
2) Hydrogenated oils widely used for extending shelf life in cookies, crackers, margarine and many manufactured foods. Scientists have found that they cause heart disease, nutritional deficiencies and a general deterioration of cellular health.
3) Excitotoxins — aspartame, monosodium glutamate (MSG) and other additives. These neurotoxins directly affect nerve cells, over-exciting them to the point of cell death, according to Dr. Russell Blaylock. Excitotoxins are found in diet soda, canned soup, salad dressing, breakfast sausage and many manufactured vegetarian foods. They’re used to add flavour to over-processed, dead foods.

Enzymes – how important are they?
Avoid eating when you are upset or in a hurry to save you from causing sugar imbalances that create more cravings. Do not use food as a substitute to escape your emotions
Chewing slowly, 30-50 times before swallowing is crucial to a proper digestive process, especially while eating whole grains or fruit and veggies. Saliva contains the enzymes that activate the breakdown of complex sugars and effectively reduce your cravings for simple sugars. Slow eating will satisfy your taste buds and appetite. If you swallow too quickly, it may cause fermentation in the stomach, producing bloating and gas.
Avoid over-eating. Chronic overeating causes fatigue and depression. “If you finish your meal feeling full, you have poisoned yourself”
Eating apples with the skin and seeds provides extra fibre and iodine. The seeds of one apple supply the daily requirement of iodine, necessary for the balanced function of the thyroid gland.
Grain products absorb less water in the intestines, which means they may hinder weight loss attempts and bowel regulation. In addition, excess flour intake absorbs water from the body tissues and ages the skin.
Fresh, organic fruit and vegetable juices could be a healthy addition to your existing diet, because they provide a broad spectrum of all the vitamins and minerals that your body needs for optimum health benefits.
Tip # 3: Take a sauna regularly
The skin is our largest eliminatory organ – the “third kidney”. It is generally considered that the skin should eliminate 30 % of body wastes such as salts, acids and toxins by way of perspiration. Due to the lack of physical work and an overly sedentary life style, the skin of most people today has degenerated as an eliminative organ. It is of vital importance that the eliminative activity of the skin is revitalised. Taking a regular s auna will help to dispel excess toxins stored in the body cells, such as heavy metals like mercury, lead and cadmium and many others toxins, thus saving your kidneys and liver from overworking. It’s a great addition to cellulite reduction therapy.
Tip # 4: Pamper yourself – you deserve this
Reward yourself with Joanna’s Head to Toe Pamper Packages. You deserve this. You also can buy a gift voucher for a special occasion for some one you care for.
Recent research shows that life expectancy for even moderately overweight people is significantly shortened, and a person in their 50’s being overweight means up to a 40% increased likelihood of death in the next 10 years.
Weight gain is due to eating more fuel than is used by activity. Logic says then, just eat less and do more. This has some truth to it, but in practice it is not so simple.
If you eat less than you body has to expect, it slows down your metabolism to save the energy. The extra exercise will help initially to lose weight but the body quickly adjusts by being more efficient at using energy, which means we get fit and burn less energy.
ZLIM AGAIN is a practitioner-only formulation of Ayurvedic and Chinese herbs designed t o move energy stored as fat into fuel that gets burned up.
ZLIM AGAIN herbal capsules
The formulation contains the Garcinia and HCA (hydroxycitric acid)
HCA is a close relative of citric acid, the agent that gives citrus fruits their characteristic tart flavor. Studies show that HCA can curb appetite, reduce food intake and inhibit the production of fats and cholesterol. This herbal formulation has been clinically proven to aid in weight loss and has solid scientific evidence to show it works by:
• Converting adipose (fat) tissue to fuel that the muscles can burn.
• Stimulating the muscles to load up and metabolise energy.
• Increasing caloric expenditure
• Promoting the digestive function
• Suppressing the appetite
• Increasing the level of serum serotonins, a neurotransmitter involved in mood and sleep. This in turn will improve your sleeping pattern and calm your nerves.
• Increasing the energy level.
By taking two capsules before meals 3x daily, my patients have not only experienced significant weight loss but lowered cholesterol, increased the beneficial HDL cholesterol and decreased Body Mass Index [BMI].
