Recover faster, heal quicker and improve blood flow and lymphatic drainage with Bodyflow™ at Face Body & Soul.
Bodyflow Therapy is a unique and technologically advanced treatment that enables athletes and patients to recover from injuries faster.
History of Bodyflow™
Bodyflow was invented in the mid-nineties by Laurent Pujol a French Osteopath who had an interest in sports recovery.
With a strong interest in skiing, Pujol’s interest in sports recovery was based on the importance of the lymphatic system in flushing out of toxins and by-products created by high intensity exercise.
Pujol trialled various therapies and electro-stimulation techniques and came across a specific fine-tuned frequency that specifically stimulated smooth muscle (a muscle type found in veins, arteries and lymphatics) and produced remarkable results in increased circulation and fluid drainage thus fast tracking the recovery process from high intensity sport.
Our medical staff have created an extensive trial of Bodyflow™ therapy in conjunction with RF FatBlaster Radio Frequency devices to aid and assist in the effective reduction of intra cellular waste, for fat and cellulite reduction and body contouring.
Bodyflow™ treatments are an integral component of all FatBlaster treatment programs.
The scope of stimulation of smooth muscle has stemmed out to other research areas such as management of Lymphoedema and the anti-thrombotic properties of Bodyflow™.
With three clinical trials being presented across Australia and Internationally throughout September and October 2007, Bodyflow™ has fast become the preferred methods of management of Lymphoedema and the standard in sports recovery.
Face Body &Soul personal trainers and physiotherapists rely on Bodyflow™ as an active tool for treatment of sporting injuries, recovery from sports events, and for patients on a body shaping and fat reduction programme.
Dramatic results can be achieved in conjunction with Accent RF treatments.
Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout the treatment regime.
You can look forward to:

How Bodyflow™ works.
Bodyflow™ Therapy promotes the flow of body fluids such as blood and lymph by its ability to stimulate smooth muscle within our veins, arteries and lymphatic vessels using a specific patented electro-stimulation frequency.
A technical explanation of Bodyflow.
Smooth muscle also known as Tunica Media is a non-striated muscle that differs in function and structure to skeletal and cardiac muscle.
Primarily under the control of the autonomic nervous system, smooth muscle is apparent through out all tubules of our bodies – in the walls of our ‘hollow organs’, veins, arteries, lymphatic system, intestinal tracts, bladder etc.
Wherever there is an excess of fluid, blood and toxins within or around tissue, Bodyflow™ Therapy promotes drainage through stimulation of the arterial, venous and lymphatic systems thereby helping people to recover faster.
This treatment also applies to patients recovering from surgical procedures as an aid to wound healing.
During Bodyflow™ treatment.
The treatment involves attaching to the appropriate part of the patient’s body a number of cups and/or electrodes which apply a mild transdermal (through skin) electrical stimulus.
Patients may experience a light tingling sensation, felt through the skin under the administered cup/electrode and a minor muscle twitch may occur indicating the stimulation effect.
The increased flow of blood and lymph is encouraged to the kidneys to be detoxified, filtered. This results in the toxins and by-products eventually being passed in the urine.
