The thing is, I’m bored of seeing the same treatments everywhere I look. Don’t you feel like aestheticians are all walking straight out of a TikTok algorithm?
These pants, though. They shake things up a bit! They are not the same ex-NASA Techno Trousers Wallace modified, but they are equally automated and pretty large, too - salopette stylie and a highly beneficial inner wellness bio-hack.. It's medical lymph drainage à la the Vodder method plus you'll breathe in purer oxygen rich air which kickstarts metabolism. After sliding into them, they're quite addictive. I include them FREE with all my 1.0 Byonik face treatments.
6 things sports massage taught me about lymphatic massage
1. It's hard to do well
This is not supposed to be a deep tissue muscle massage — you are manipulating the skin at a surface level. It is tricky to get right because it's about compression - squeezing the tissues and nudging the lymph up the body in continuous motion. The Slimyonik does this better because it's the equivalent of 24 hands on massage.
2. It has immediate aesthetic benefits.
Treatments that promote lymphatic drainage result in less inflammation, less sluggishness, more vitality, better energy, clear eyes, clear skin, and less water retention. Health and beauty go hand in hand, so having better lymph and blood circulation will ensure your skin will be more detoxified, nourished, hydrated, and oxygenated.
3. It keeps you in good shape.
When your lymphatic system is sluggish, it affects not only your health, but also your skin. You can look dull, congested, and puffy all over. That's where these trousers come in - they get that lymph fluid flowing faster todecrease inflammation, puffiness and reduce bloat. Your body should technically be doing this on its own through regular muscle contractions — however, things can get backed up especially if you train hard and need a manual boost to remove that excess lymph fluid. One thing it won’t do, however, is lead to weight loss on its own. It helps to reduce water retention and the oxygen helps boost fat metabolism so may cause some numbers on scales to lower a little. Used with a fitness or diet its brilliant. It also has effects on cellulite due to it reducing the amount of fluid pressing against the fibrous bands beneath the skin.
5. It improves athletic performance.
Getting a lymphatic massage right after exercising can decrease tissue or muscle damage, eliminate lactic acid from muscles faster, leading to a quicker recovery. Whereas slower lymphatics can leave you feeling tired, compromise your immune system and mean muscle soreness without flushing out toxins. Imagine if you’re doing this to your body on a regular basis, each and every week!
5. It speeds recovery
After surgery or a traumatic injury, professional athletes use post-op lymphatic drainage to recover. It can help you recover and get back to your sport faster.
6. Shake it off
OMG this note is getting too long. Anytime you feel stress, you need to shake it off to release tension and do away with the bad vibes. This works like a charm.
