  • Drink at least 2 liters of water before your treatment and another 2 liters per day following your treatment (soft drink, soda, juice or tea is not water).

  • Localize the treatment area after the treatment, such as using a body brush, using body moisturizer every day, and massage recommended moisturizer freely in the treatment area. The use of dry skin brushing daily to stimulate lymph movement (your therapist will show you how to do this). This is not mandatory but will hasten the results.
