WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING EACH SESSION?
During the treatment, you will be placed lying down on a treatment table. Special red light pads will be positioned in strategic places on your body as you simply enjoy a relaxing 20 minute session.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The unique light emitted from our device causes the fat cell membranes to temporarily alter the permeability of the cell wall. This brief change allows some of the fat contents to seep out to where it can then be processed by the body. The process also increases collagen and elastin in the skin while creating a slimmer appearance.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FAT?
After being released, the fat is broken down into free fatty acids and glycerol and enters the blood stream. Once in the blood stream, the fatty acids can be either used as fuel or quickly eliminated by the body.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FAT CELLS?
The fat cells shrink to a fraction of their original size.
WHAT AREA OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED?
The Lipo-Melt treatment can be effectively used on essentially every part of the body where localized fat deposits exist that are resistant to diet and exercise. This includes the waist, hips, upper legs, thighs and upper arms.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results are usually seen after just one treatment.
HOW LONG LASTING ARE THE RESULTS?
The results can be very long-lasting. However, Lipo-melt does not destroy fat cells but releases some of their contents. If your caloric intake is significantly higher than you require, your body will eventually store fat again. For this reason, we recommend a maintenance program of once or twice per month after the desired results are attained.
WHAT RISKS ARE INVOLVED?
There are no risks or side effects involved in using Lipo-Melt. It is considered a safe alternative to invasive procedures such as traditional liposuction. The Lipo-Melt treatment is 100% non-invasive and does not cause any bruising or scarring.
DO I HAVE TO FOLLOW A DIET?
No changes are required… but you can expect better results if you reduce your caloric intake somewhat and increase your water consumption.
DO I HAVE TO EXERCISE?
Each of your sessions will be followed by 10 minutes on our whole body vibration plate which stimulates circulation and helps to burn the fat that has been released.
DOES THIS THERAPY HELP WITH CELLULITE & LOOSE SKIN?
Clients undergoing this therapy have noticed an improvement with cellulite as well as skin tone and texture.
WHAT RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE?
Lipo-Melt is based on the over forty years of research starting with NASA experimentation and culminating with the aesthetic and orthopedic industries today. Following the recent discovery that 635nm light has an effect on fat cells, this new technology has created an explosion in the body sculpting industry.
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition characterized by damaged nerve endings, most commonly in the feet and lower legs. Generally, a patient’s symptoms are initially localized to the digits and plantar aspect of the foot but over time can spread proximally to the distal third of the leg.
Most cases are related to diabetes which impacts between 60 to 70 percent of all patients with diabetes. This is because elevated blood sugars eventually damage the small blood vessels that provide nutrients to the nerves. Since the blood vessels cannot provide adequate nutrients to nerves, nerve injuries do not properly heal and regenerate. There are dozens of other causes of neuropathy including trauma as well as the side effects of prescription drugs.
Red/Near Infra-Red Light Treatment
Medical treatment for years has centered on pain management medicine to cover up the symptoms while the condition progresses. A much more natural, effective, non-invasive approach is the cutting-edge Ultimate Light. This painless approach employs a powerful system that focuses on healing the damaged nerve endings, rather than covering up the symptoms with dangerous drugs which can cause terrible side effects.
How Does It Work?
The key discovery is that Red/Near Infra-Red Light actually stimulates the tissues of the body at the cellular level. The light energy penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the mitochondria of the cells. This energizes the mitochondria and accelerates healing of damaged nerves and surrounding tissues. It does this in part by increasing the oxygenation of injured tissue. In fact, regardless of what type of tissue that is involved, Red Light dramatically increases cellular function.
Before and After(s):
We know you’ve heard this before, but we’ll say it again – stretching is important and we all need to do it more often. Stretching isn’t just for athletes, runners, and people who do yoga. When it comes to maintaining joint and muscle health – it’s important for everyone. Here are a few reasons why:
Stretching Increases Your Flexibility and Mobility
Stretching regularly will lengthen your muscles, which improves flexibility and allows your body to move more freely. Many people often overlook the connection between injuries and a poor range of motion or a lack of flexibility. Simply put, if you want to avoid back pain or other common injuries, you need to stretch more.
Stretching Improves Your Posture
When muscles are tight, the alignment of your spine will suffer. It’s common to have a tight muscle on one side of your body but not the other, thus causing postural imbalance. Over time, poor posture can cause a number of different injuries so it’s important to work out those tight muscles before things get worse.
Stretching Reduces Stress
Taking the time to stretch and breathe every day is a great way to de-stress. Pain in your neck, shoulders, and back can also be caused by muscle tension as a result of stress. So, if you’re feeling burnt out, start a stretching routine and stick to it.
Stretching Keeps You Feeling Young
Did you know that as we get older, our muscles get shorter and tighter? If you’re not stretching every day, you’re not taking proper care of your aging body. Increasing your flexibility, range of motion, and stress levels will help you feel your best no matter what age.
Although both medication and chiropractic are utilized by neck pain sufferers, not everyone wants to or can take certain medications due to unwanted side effects. For those who aren’t sure what to do, wouldn’t it be nice if research was available that could answer the question posted above? Let’s take a look!
When people have neck pain, they have options as to where they can go for care. Many seek treatment from their primary care physician (PCP). The PCP’s approach to neck pain management usually results in a prescription that may include an anti-inflammatory drug (like ibuprofen or Naproxen), a muscle relaxant (like Flexeril / cyclobenzaprine), and/or a pain pill (like hydrocodone / Vicodin). The choice of which medication a PCP recommends hinges on the patient’s presentation, patient preference (driven from advertisements or prior experiences), and/or the PCP’s own preference.
Although it’s becoming increasingly common to have a PCP refer a neck pain patient for chiropractic care, this still does not happen for all neck pain patients in spite of strong research supporting the significant benefits of spinal manipulation to treat neck pain. One such study compared spinal manipulation, acupuncture, and anti-inflammatory medication with the objective of assessing the long-term benefits (at one year) of these three approaches in patients with chronic (>13 weeks) neck pain. The study randomly divided 115 patients into one of three groups that were all treated for nine weeks. Comparison at the one-year point showed that ONLY those who received spinal manipulation had maintained long-term benefits based on a review of seven main outcome measures. The study concludes that for patients with chronic neck pain, spinal manipulation was the ONLY treatment that maintained a significant long-term (one-year) benefit after nine weeks of treatment!
In a 2012 study published in medical journal The Annals of Internal Medicine, 272 acute or sub-acute neck pain patients received one of three treatment approaches: medication, exercise with advice from a health care practitioner, or chiropractic care. Participants were treated for twelve weeks, with outcomes assessed at 2, 4, 8, 12, 26, and 52 weeks. The patients in the chiropractic care and exercise groups significantly outperformed the medication group at the 26-week point AND had more than DOUBLE the likelihood of complete neck pain relief. However, at the one-year point, ONLY the chiropractic group continued to demonstrate long-term benefits! The significant benefits achieved from both exercise and chiropractic treatments when compared with medication make sense as both address the cause of neck pain as opposed to only masking the symptoms.
With results of these studies showing acute, subacute, as well as chronic neck pain responding BEST to chiropractic care, it only makes sense to TRY THIS FIRST!

The effects of red and near-infrared LED technology on fat cells is well known. However, only our micro-chip-based technology can generate beams of near-infrared light(835nm) with the power necessary to increase the body’s production of collagen and elastin, resulting in:
1. A reduction in fine lines,wrinkles, scars and stretch marks..
2. An increase in volume and firmness for a youthful, more energetic appearance.
3. The reduction in blemishes resulting from aging and sun damage.
4. A reduction in sagging and loose skin.
