Gyratory Massage vs. Ionithermie

Battle of the natural cellulite ‘cures’. No one can resist a bit of healthy conflict, and today we throw two natural cellulite cures into battle for the best! That’s right – it’s the battle between Gyratory massage and Ionithermie for ‘The Best Cellulite Cure’. Who will win? Let’s find out!

Before we start our battle, we better talk about what each of the two treatments is:

Gyratory Massage. Also known as the G5 massage, this is a type of deep tissue massage that uses various techniques and pressures during an intense massage session. It works to break down fat deposits and stimulate lymphatic flow, leading to a reduction in the appearance of fat and cellulite.

Ionithermie. The process of applying natural ingredients (clay and algae) to the skin, and using them to conduct low-level electrical stimuli into the body. It works to improve circulation, as well as to slim and detoxify the body. It also reduces the appearance of cellulite.

Okay, so we’re 0 and 0. You now know what each of these treatments are – let’s start the battle with all of the benefits that come along with each treatment method:

Benefits – Gyratory Massage

  • Reduces appearance of cellulite
  • Aids in the mobilization of edema fluid
  • Prevents muscle fatigue and stiffness
  • Reduces trigger points
  • Aids in the retention of muscle tone

Benefits – Ionithermie

  • Reduce the appearance of cellulite
  • Firm and tone muscles
  • Lose 2-20cm during initial treatment
  • Improve skin texture
  • Detoxify the body
  • Re-mineralize the body
  • Increase Energy levels
  • Boost metabolism
  • Reduce fluid retention
  • Improve blood and lymph circulation
  • Provide relief for lower back and joint pain

Based on this quick analysis, it appears that Ionithermie takes the lead. Gyratory massage comes along with a lot of great benefits, but Ionithermie has a long list of benefits that extends much beyond that of a G5 massage. That’s 1 for Ionithermie, and 0 for Gyratory massage.

Now let’s take a look at treatment plans. Ionithermie includes two types of treatments; in salon and at home. In salon treatments run about 30 minutes and, depending on the severity of the cellulite concerns, can take anywhere from 5 treatments (for mild concerns) to 15 treatments (for severe concerns). In terms of the G5 massage, you should start to see results in as little as 5 treatments, with a 6-week treatment plan in place for maximum results. For the purpose of our battle, we want our cellulite woes to be gone as quickly as possible – so the Gyratory massage earns a point here, tying things up between the two treatments!

Let’s move onto the pain and danger in the game. The good news is, neither of these treatments are considered to be painful, nor do either come will ill side effects. They are both non-invasive and non-surgical, meaning you can return to your normal daily activities directly following treatment. So, while both treatments remain tied in this aspect, we’re going to give another point to Gyratory massage because though neither treatment is painful, massage is extremely relaxing! And that puts Gyratory massage in the lead at 2-1.

Finally, and most importantly, we must look at their effectiveness. While each treatment comes with a long list of benefits, for our purposes we’re going to stick with their effectiveness on the treatment of cellulite. Scientific studies have shown that Ionithermie can successfully remove up to 8 inches within one treatment session and effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite. Gyratory massage has also shown to be effective, but within a shorter period of time. But since we’ve already given the G5 massage a point for its quick healing, the two remain tied in the battle of effectiveness.

That gives G5 massage the win by 2-1! While Ionithermie comes along with many different benefits, the main purpose of our discussion today is to decide who is better at effectively reducing cellulite. And while both have been shown to be effective in this aspect over the long term, it seems that G5 gives us quicker results – and it’s relaxing too!
