LightWave Luminescent Therapy: 

lrg-83-wrinkles_02

 

 

 

 

 

 

This LED light device uses two forms of therapeutic light to give profound anti-aging and healing effects. It smoothes out facial wrinkles, reduces pain, and decreases cellulite by:

• accelerating the production of collagen and elastin

• increasing cellular permeability, allowing for increased cellular nutrient intake

• increasing the removal of excess fluid and waste products from the cells

• increasing the production of macrophage (scavenger) cells for the removal of toxins/excess pigment/scar tissue

• increasing lymphatic drainage

• increasing vascularization (blood flow) to the surface of the skin

Compression Wrap:

legcompressorsLeg boots alternately expand and contract, giving a pleasant sensation of both of your legs being massaged, from hip to feet all at once.

• reduces cellulite

• strengthens muscle tonality

• increases blood flow and circulation

• stimulates lymphatic drainage

• oxygenates

 

SunSplash Vitamin D:

sunsplash10This “tanning” unit is the only tanning unit recommended by Dr. Mercola. He advises against using oral vitamin D, and instead, to use this more natural way of exposing your whole body to the full spectrum of sunlight. Evidence continues to accure showing that both the incidence and progression of cancers, especially colon, breast and prostate cancers, are beneficially affected by having vitamin D serum levels in the 40-60 ng/ml range. This amount is recommended by over 42 vitamin D researchers, and it is well above the 20 ng/ml officially recommended by the Institute of Medicine. It is estimated that as much as 75-80% of the world’s population is below the 40 ng/ml range.

• full spectrum light gives a natural tan

• red light puts collagen in skin surface, filling in wrinkles, helping to reverse the appearance of aging

• white light strengthens the walls of blood vessels in skin, 
improving oxygenation and hydration

• all the lights together give a surfeit of vitamin D

 

Gravity Inversion Table:

Ironman-Fitness-IFT1000-Infrared-Therapy-Inversion-Table-5211Gravity is not only the biggest force-field on the planet, but it is the most monumental aging force our bodies have to cope with. Just as gravity prevents water from flowing upward, it also prevents the blood in our bodies from flowing upward freely, above our hearts and into our heads. Poor circulation to our heads is one reason why our eyes, ears, gums, faces, scalps and brains are often the first place we see deterioration from aging.

Gravity also takes a heavy toll on our internal organs: it compresses our lungs and limits breathing capacity as well as prolapsing our colons, slowing down elimination. The colon’s descent not only affects our ability to move our bowels, but it compresses our sexual organs as well.

 

THE GRAVITY OF THE SITUATION IS – GRAVE

As FETUSES
We all begin life in the water – in the near-weightless environment of our mother’s womb; and, while there, we turn upside-down to prepare for our headfirst entrance into the world.

As INFANTS
We spend most of our time sleeping in the bottoms-up position. In Keeping our heads lower than our hearts, we continue to receive a proper supply of blood and oxygen to our brains.

As CHILDREN
We eagerly seek ways to free our bodies from Gravity’s confining grasp. Hence, our exhilaration upon engaging in such activities as bouncing, rolling, sliding, swinging, spinning, etc.

As ADULTS
We instinctively elevate our legs and feet on tables, chairs, desks, and even walls, to counteract Gravity’s pull on our bodies.

As HUMANS
We confront Gravity’s force, and our inborn fear of falling, every time we get into an elevator or airplane, climb a mountain, ski down a hill, or take a thrilling ride.

As EARTHLINGS
We wonder about the enormous research on human survival in gravity-free space, while scientific efforts to understand human survival in Earth’s Gravity remains relatively unexplored.

 

Whole Body Vibration:

foreverfitvibrationSome of our clients call this the jiggle machine. Indeed, you stand on a platform that sways you back and forth and forward and backward, and this all happens from your feet up to the top of your head. Research on its benefits is incontrovertible: specifically, 10 minutes a day builds 30% bone density in one year. It gives all the benefits of exercise in a pain-free and fun way:

• builds bone density

• improves muscle strength and performance

• increases flexibility and range of motion

• enhances critical blood flow throughout the body (oxygenation and lymph drainage)

• increases secretion of hormones that are important in regeneration and repair processes, such as HGH (Human Growth Hormone), IGF-1, and testosterone.

• reduces appearance of cellulite

• increases the happiness hormone serotonin, as well as neurotrophine, a substance that supports our thinking process

• decreases cortisol levels

• rehabilitates injuries and ailments

• enhances training results
and speeds training recovery

• accelerates weight loss

• reduces lower back pain

• enhances pain reduction

• improves collagen production

• reduces the effects of stress

 

Chi Machine:

ChiMachineAlternately called either the fish machine, or the snake machine because it moves your body in a slinking, fluid side-to-side manner. It is both a therapeutic massager as well as an aerobic exerciser.

• oxygenates, tones, and strengthens the body

• increases feelings of energy, aliveness and well being

• stimulates the lymphatic system and exercises and balances the spine

 

 

 

 

Bio-Mat:

mini1[1]

Combines the healing effects of hefty emissions of both negative ions and far-infrared waves:

• oxygenates the whole body

• increases circulation

• dissolves hidden toxins

• alkalizes the body

• strengthens the immune system by stimulating the production of white blood cells and killer T-cells

 

Pulsed Magnetic Facial:

pulsemagneticfacialThis is done with a device that is specific for the face which delivers sound and heat energy as well as pulsed magnetic energy. A youthful face awaits you with the regular use of this instrument.

• improves intercellular fluid & blood flow

• increases cellular energy levels

• increases cellular oxygen levels

• promotes cellular healing

• stimulates intercellular communication

• stimulates electron transport in cells

 

Wave Body Balance:

wavelacasaThe Wave is an efficient exercise device that in spite of its simplicity (in fact, its simplicity IS its genius) accomplishes more than any other exercise device we have come across. The anchored side of the WAVE is the perfect height to tighten and tone your hips, thighs and butt. Plus, you can use this “step” side of the wave for cardio sequences that maximize calorie burning with minimum impact.

But, the rocking side of the Wave is when it gets really interesting. When using the Wave as a rocker, core muscles, abs, lower back and hips are constantly and simultaneously engaged. Upper and lower body are sculpted. Also, as a balancing bar, brain hemispheres are synchronized.

 

Electro-Muscular Stimulator:

La Casa’s Electro-Muscular Stimulator (EMS) sends comfortable electrical impulses through the skin that then stimulate nerves, and then muscles. Muscular activity is controlled by the central and peripheral nervous systems which transmit electrical signals to the muscles. With the EMS, when the muscle receives the electrical signal, it contracts (vibrates) as if the brain itself had sent the signal. As the signal strength increases, the muscle flexes as in physical exercise. When the pulse ceases, the muscle relaxes, and the cycle repeats itself. The treatment improves muscle tone and circulation. As a treatment for specific conditions, Inflammation and pain are reduced.

Energy Blanket:

La Casa’s Energy Blanket, also known as the OLM Healing Blanket, is widely used in Russia as a treatment as well as preventative for many diseases. The key to the blanket is its construction, made with shield layers. The layers accumulate and reflect back the body’s own electromagnetic radiation in the infrared and extremely high frequency ranges, creating a local “eco- environment” between the body and the healing blanket self-radiations. These then influence biologically active points throughout the whole body. As well, the blanket completely forms a shield from surrounding negative artificially created electromagnetic and electrostatic fields. Research has shown the blanket:

  • rebalances hormones
  • restores adaptive capacities of the body
  • increases vascular permeability
  • activates biochemical and oxidative processes
  • causes anti-inflammatory action
  • activates immunological processes
  • regulate cell homeostasis
  • reduce the toxic effects of artificial electromagnetic radiation and electrostatic fields
