Introducing the award-winning Body Ballancer – clinically proven to improve your lymphatic and overall health


What is the Body Ballancer and how exactly can it help the lymphatic system? 


Essentially the Body Ballancer looks like a giant spacesuit (a jacket for arms and upper body and trousers for legs and stomach – clients can choose to have either or both) and it’s laced through with a network of compression tubes and chambers.  The suit connects to a computerised unit, which regulates airflow to the suit by gently inflating and deflating the tubes.

The gentle squeezing and releasing action of the suit stimulates the body’s tissues and circulatory systems, drains excess fluids, forces fatty tissues and toxic deposits into the circulatory system for elimination and increases lymphatic flow.  The treatment is completely painless and very relaxing.  The result is a safe and gentle form of lymphatic drainage, with a whole host of benefits: 

  • Decrease in lymphedema and excess fluid retention
  • Accelerated recovery from injury and surgery
  • Immediate relief of “heavy legs”
  • Decreased athletic recovery time
  • Reduction/elimination of cellulite
  • Improved gut health
  • Improved shaping of legs, abdomen, buttocks and arms,
  • Strengthens loose skin (from pregnancy or weight loss)
  • Prevention of varicose veins
  • Reduction in edema from upper limbs, chest and back after mastectomy
  • Improvement in immune system function
  • Improved bowel movements

What happens in a session?

I’d love you to experience the simple pleasure and benefits of the Body Ballancer for yourself .  You will enjoy a wonderful 45 minutes of pure relaxation and wellbeing. Simply wear a pair of leggings or track suit bottoms, there’s no need to strip off. After zipping you into the suit and ensuring you’re comfortable, I will leave you to enjoy your session and drift off or I can stay with you and chat all things holistic or put the world to rights!  I’m constantly learning and finding out about new therapies, healing and relaxation techniques.  I’m passionate about facial lymphatic drainage and yoga, mindful eating and body wisdom and am always happy to share!

If you you’re not sure whether this is the right treatment for you, if you don’t know whether to try the jacket or the trousers or if you have any questions at all, just call me on 07802 291103.

You can find lots more information on the Body Ballancer on its social media pages and website.  Don’t just take my word for it, you’ll see all sorts of testimonials, photos showing before and after dramatic cellulite reduction as well as Chrissy Teigen using her BB before the Oscars with her gorgeous kids climbing all over her! Jennifer Aniston is also a huge fan and has her own machine at home. Dame Kelly Holmes, Callum Best and Jodie Kidd love to use the BB post training and feature online.

What’s all this about the lymphatic system?

Why is there so much talk these days about the importance of a healthy lymphatic system (also simply known as the lymph)?  What’s the big deal and why does it need support?

Well, it’s the least understood and most undervalued of all our body systems, yet if it stopped working we’d die within 24-48 hours!   In Ayurvedic medicine it is considered the most important body system of all and is known as ‘the water of life’.  Experts also describe it as our ‘natural cleansing and watering system’ and ‘the river of life’.

The lymphatic system sits alongside the body’s cardiovascular system, quietly helping to look after our health by performing three critical functions:

  • It supports our immune systems by removing toxins, dead blood cells, pathogens and manmade waste, as well as being the system that carries white blood cells around the body to fight infection
  • It helps our bodies absorb fats and fat-soluble vitamins from our digestive systems, delivering these nutrients to cells where they’re used as fuel.
  • It removes excess fluid and waste products from the spaces between the cells and organs of the body.

If a healthy lymphatic system becomes compromised due to illness, stress, dehydration, lack of sleep, emotional trauma or a generally poor lifestyle, this can lead to a range of issues, including

  • weakened immunity and greater susceptibility to illness
  • poor skin tone
  • excess weight
  • cellulite
  • more visible signs of ageing
  • headaches
  • joint pain
  • fatigue
  • lymphedema
  • tissue swelling

So you can see it has a lot to deal with! It is an absolute work horse of a system.  Unlike the circulatory system, where the hero heart acts as its pump, tirelessly moving the blood around our bodies, the lymphatic system has no such help and only moves one way – upward and away from gravity, relying on movement and breathing to keep it flowing.     Here’s where the Body Ballancer comes in – a simple way to help your lymph perform at optimum levels.
