The Science of Endosphères Therapy
Endosphères Therapy is a technology that uses an innovative Compressive Microvibration system, a treatment that, through a roller device composed of 55 silicon spheres, generates low-frequency mechanical vibrations. This acts on improving local blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, reducing the appearance of cellulite*. The treatment can be performed on the whole body and face.
So how does it work?
1. Pain Relief
Endosphères Therapy is able to reduce pain through the application of Compressive Microvibration.
Compressive Microvibration stimulates mechanoreceptors which helps to reduce pain and inflammation. Additionally, the stimulation of these skin receptors triggers the release of endorphins, which also promotes pain relief.
The sustained vibrations produced by the hand piece stimulate mechanoreceptors in the skin which interfere with pain signals, thus decreasing the sensation of pain.
This of when you bump your head, and immediately rub it which alleviates the sensation of pain. This is the same concept and is referred to as the Gate Control Theory of Pain.
Studies show correlation between pain sensation, inflammation, toxin stagnation and cellulite.
2. Lymphatic Drainage
The mechanism of Compressive Microvibration moves excess water and trapped toxins towards major lymphatic ducts, where they can be cycled out of the body via the lymphatic system.
When excess fluids and toxins accumulate in the tissues due to lymphatic stasis, edemas form.
Over time, the stagnation of toxins in the tissues can alter the state of extra cellular matrix (a network of macromolecules - including collagen and enzymes - which lend structural and biochemical support to surrounding cells) which can result in tissue alteration and fibrosis (think: cellulite).
Not only is lymphatic drainage essential in order to improve assertive imperfections, it is also highly indicated for general health and wellness.
The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to drain fluids, detoxify, regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and foreign substances, and maintain a healthy immune system.
3. Improved Circulation
The circulatory system (also known as the vascular system) is made up of blood vessels that carry blood away from and back towards the heart.
Blood is carried away from the heart by the arteries, and veins carry blood back to the heart.
The right side of the heart receives oxygen-poor blood from the veins and pumps it to the lungs, where it picks up oxygen and gets rid of carbon dioxide.
The left side of the heart receives oxygen-rich blood from the lungs and pumps it through the arteries to the rest of the body.
Endosphères Therapy improves microcirculation in the treatment area through the pumping effect, which leads to a “Vascular Gymnatstics” effect.
The method produces increased oxygenation of the tissues, as well as a restorative effect.
This can be seen and felt through the heat increase and redness that appears during the treatment.
There is also an increase in localized metabolism which improves exchange between the lymphatic and circulatory systems.
4. Body Contouring
Endosphères uses the muscle as active resistance, as the treatment area extends from the skin to the muscle.
The wave produced by the application of Compressive Microvibration on the tissues break down fat fibroblasts.
This allows for compression and remodeling of the localized fat tissue.
The treatment also increases metabolism in difficult fat tissue.
When there is homeostasis in the tissues of the body, the tissues will tend towards a natural aesthetic shape.
When edema, stagnation of toxins, and/or inflammation are present, it may result in structural alteration on the tissues – that is, the tissue structure will be altered from its natural aesthetic shape by restoring homeostasis (see: “3, Improved Circulation) and by reducing fibrous tissue through the application of Compressive Microvibration.
5. Muscle Toning
Endosphères Therapy also improves the muscle tone of the areas to which it is applied. The natural aesthetic shape obtained when the physiology of the tissues are in equilibrium also requires a firm and toned muscle base.
The application of Compressive Microvibration – specifically, in this case vibration – activates neuromuscular spindles which, over time, leads to significant increases in muscle strength and tone.
Moreover, the “Vascular Gymnastics Effect” generates hyperaemia, improving oxygen and nutrient intake, thus contributing to the strength of the muscles.
The Treatment Process
For most clients, a series of 12 sessions is recommended, although some clients require 18 or 24.
The treatments should be applied twice per week for best results, no closer than 48 hours apart.
It is recommended to go through the three-phase treatment protocol for most clients. You therapist will determine the length of application, rotation direction, pressure, and frequency of each treatment based on the clients customized plan.
Maintenance is recommended for best results. As age, genetics, and lifestyle are the primary determinants of these issues, results will be long lasting but will fade without maintenance.
Fields of Application
All the above characteristics make the "Endosphères Therapy" method a current, effective and safe instrument for aesthetic, physical and rehabilitative treatment, establishing the method itself as a treatment of extreme effectiveness and manageability also in the phlebolymphology and in sports medicine.
