What The Body Ballancer® Can Do For Each Of Us

“One of my favourite all time beauty treatments and health treatments… Try it yourself. The Body Ballancer® – fabulous!” NEWBY HANDS, GLOBAL BEAUTY DIRECTOR, PORTER MAGAZINE

Grace and I were contacted by Shirley Dunmall, PR for The Body Ballancer® as she wanted us both to try it out because she felt that it was something that our readers would be interested in. She made us appointments local to each of us. I have to admit that it was a concept that I had never heard of so I am going to give you the official description of what The Body Ballancer® does followed by our own personal experiences.

Introducing The Body Ballancer®

The Body Ballancer® uses patent protected inflating compression garments to apply a gentle or firm massage. Each garment contains 24 individual air chambers that overlap to apply fluent compression strokes that target every inch of the treated area.This massage motion, with its special direction of flow, increases circulation and gently but thoroughly decongests the problem areas of hips, thighs, buttocks (Ballancer® pants) and upper arms (Ballancer® jacket).

The Body Ballancer® action accelerates the removal of waste products and excess fluid via the lymphatic system, reducing the appearance of cellulite, improving skin tone, and reducing volume in areas affected by excess fluid retention whilst Its gentle, rhythmic action promotes relaxation.

Proven technology

The Body Ballancer® is a revolution in aesthetic compression treatment, or ‘pressotherapy’. After 35 years as the global market leader in medical pneumatic compression therapy, the Israeli based manufacturer Mego Afek have been able to combine their years of medical research, cutting edge technology and clinically proven results to the aesthetic market in the form of the Body Ballancer®.

The Body Ballancer® is a versatile, relaxing and invigorating compression therapy system. Adapted from the proven principles of manual lymphatic drainage massage by the world’s leading manufacturer of medical pressotherapy devices, it delivers a multi- faceted, effective answer to a number of body issues.

The Body Ballancer® provides excellent results in the battle against cellulite, loss of skin tone and is superb in helping to achieve optimal health. Regular use of the Body Ballancer® promotes a healthy lymphatic system, essential in the elimination of the waste and toxins that result from the body’s natural metabolic process.

Photographs show actual results after using Body Ballancer® three times a week over 4 weeks (note: marks on left-hand image are for measurement purposes only).

A course of Body Ballancer® massages will reduce the appearance of cellulite, slimming, firming, toning and smoothing the skin and reducing volume in the abdomen, upper arms, buttocks and legs, that are often affected by fluid retention. Ballancer® also boosts circulation, bringing healthy oxygenated blood to the treated areas that combined with the massage action, helps to effectively breakdown the build-up and appearance of cellulite.

The gentle rhythmic action of the Body Ballancer® also promotes deep relaxation, helps alleviate symptoms of stress and improves sleep quality.

The importance of lymphatic health

The lymphatic system sits alongside the body’s cardio-vascular system quietly helping to maintain our health and well-being by performing three critical functions:
• Aiding the immune system in removing and destroying waste, debris, dead blood cells, pathogens and other toxins
• Absorbing fats and fat-soluble vitamins from the digestive system, ensuring delivery of these nutrients to the tissues of the body where they are used as fuel
• Removing excess fluid – ‘lymph’ – and waste products from the spaces between the cells and organs of the body
The Body Ballancer® stimulates the whole of the lymphatic system, enhancing lymphatic and venous return and reducing excess swelling in the limbs. After just one treatment on the Body Ballancer®, you will feel lighter, slimmer and energised.

Grace: My appointment to have the Body Ballancer® treatment was at Grayshott Spa. When I arrived in the treatment room, I saw a rather large pair of what looked like trousers laid out on the couch. I rather liked the fact that you don’t have to get undressed (I was given socklets to wear)- you merely hop up on the treatment couch and slide into the trousers. Reminded me of that Wallace and Gromit cartoon. Anyhow, after an explanation of how the equipment works, the therapist zips you up. I was covered from just under my bust to past my toes.

The pump is switched on and air begins to fill the various cavities in the lining of the trousers from the toes upwards, like a wave of quite firm pressure. It felt like 12 pairs of super competent hands massaging me at the same time so take it from me, it was a wonderful feeling that simply couldn’t be achieved manually. I was completely relaxed and could have easily dropped off.

If I win the lottery, I would seriously consider buying some of these trousers to use at home. I can just imagine myself lying on the sofa being massaged while watching a box set. If salons offered this treatment while, for example, having a manicure, I would jump at it. Such a treat. Apart from the relaxation benefits, a course of Body Ballancer® treatments is apparently beneficial in terms of easing water retention, improving the health of one’s lymphatic system and reducing cellulite. So not a quick fix – but, realistically, what is? I found it a very enjoyable experience and I felt lighter and relaxed after just one treatment.

Annabel: My treatment was at The Courthouse Clinic in Maidenhead. The treatment took approximately 1 hour however this may have been a little longer than a normal treatment as Naomi was explaining to me, in full, all about the Body Ballancer®

I found the treatment extremely relaxing. Luckily I do not have any medical condition however I am of the belief that it is better to keep healthy in order to try to stave off ill-health. I understand the need to keep the lymphatic system functioning at its very best so this would be a treatment that I would consider once every couple of months. I do not have cellulite however I did notice, as I put my trousers back on, that they were definitely looser. Don’t you think one always feels energised when you have had some ‘me time’ especially when it has been spent looking after your health so this has multiple benefits for me .

“The snug skirt I had on before going in for the first treatment was a good 1.5 inches looser when I zipped it back on… Gone was that sluggish, bloated, yucky feeling I had beforehand. My legs and feet felt lighter too.” AMY LAWRENSON, BYRDIE MAGAZINE
