Hypoxi

‘Hypoxi’ is a natural body shaping technique consisting of; Dermologie, S120, L250 and Vacunant. The body type determines which equipment is used. 

  • Dermologie makes the skin more flexible and therefore strong through small, continuous skin movements. 
  • S120 is used for women with pear-shaped bodies; you sit and cycle and whilst cycling the combination of pressure and vacuum is used to work on blood circulation, drain liquid and fatty acids in the body. 
  • L250 is similar to S120 but used for these who prefer to lie down and exercise in a comfortable position. 
  • Vacunant is used by men and women with apple-shaped bodies, you walk on a treadmill while pressure and vacuum are applied to the body.
