The treatment helps to remove the cellulite, which is a fat surplus in some parts of the body - especially abdomen, thighs, arms, buttocks - that the body cannot get rid of. As a result, the appetite gradually decreases, while the metabolism also accelerates, so the excess substances leave the body faster. During the treatment the body adapts to this process. Thus without any effort, and through maintaining an appropriate diet, an ideal weight can be achieved and retained with the help of the treatment.
In order to achieve the desired effect the massage must be repeated several times.

The change is visible already at the end of the first week and it can be measured in kilograms and centimeters at the end of the treatment.
