The AcuSculpt™ slimming and toning massage helps with curbing cravings, speeding up the metabolism, stimulating bowel movements, healing the gut, and getting rid of bloating and gas. This massage tones up the abdominal and inner thigh muscles (it could definitely be felt in the stomach and love handles area) if done over time. It can be paired with acupuncture that the technician hooks up to stim machines so that it adds that extra pulse and activates the treatment in a bigger way. Ask for the weight loss protocol if this is what you’d like, but the team will help you during your consultation to decide which treatment plan is good for you).
