What is LPG therapy?


Endermologie, or LPG therapy, is a deep and painless massage to treat contusions, oedemas, haematomas, contractures and muscle fatigue; it also serves to combat cellulite and to dissolve scars by stimulating the connective tissue.

This therapy takes its name from its inventor Louis Paul Guitay and is a technique that promotes the regeneration of connective tissue through mechanised massage that can be applied to any part of the body. This treatment is suitable for people of all ages who want to combat not only the effects of time and cellulite, but also circulatory problems by preventing excessive tissue relaxation. As a result, the surface of the skin is also smoother to the touch and visibly healthier.


Benefits of LPG therapy


LPG therapy boasts numerous benefits aimed at improving the psycho-physical well-being of those undergoing this treatment; in fact, it has multiple effects including:

– Decontracting: relieves stress by relieving contractures that accumulate mainly in the neck and back and by relieving muscle tension and stiffness in various parts of the body;

– Anti-cellulite: by activating microcirculation, tissue tone and appearance improve and the skin appears smoother and firmer;

– Anti-ageing: the massage stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, which are the basis of any treatment, even the most invasive, to eliminate wrinkles;

– Relaxing: the loosening of muscular tension favours the relaxation of the treated area and thus a general physical and mental relaxation of the person undergoing the treatment;

– Lymph-draining: stimulation of the lymphatic circulation is intended to facilitate the drainage of liquids (and thus avoid stagnation) that can accumulate inside the body and cause the formation of cellulite;

– Anti-oedema: LPG promotes the reabsorption of oedemas, ecchymoses, effusions, haematomas caused by sprains or strains and muscle injuries;

– Anti-fibromyalgia: Endermologie treats muscle inflammation and thus counteracts fibromyalgia, i.e. pain in the muscles and fibrous connective tissue structures, a syndrome that affects approximately 2 million Italians;

– Scar detachment: Through the medical application of LPG, scar lesions can be detached, removing adhesions, increasing skin elasticity and tissue vascularisation.
