In case of relaxing back/legs or full body massages, with 1-3 sessions of focused massage therapy, most clients get the benefits of massage very quickly. The average person usually needs between 5-8 sessions to gain long-term freedom from pain. The number of sessions needed depends on the severity and length of time that you have dealt with the issue.

Please note that while we are committed to providing the highest level of massage therapy available, and we have a high rate of success working with pain issues, we cannot guarantee results and your results may vary. In some cases, pain may increase before it gets better due to unmasking underlying issues. Your pain may stem from issues not related to the musculoskeletal system and may require working with other professionals such as orthopedists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical therapists, neurologists, etc to see improvement. If our massage therapy is not producing noticeable results within the first few sessions, we will refer you to other professionals in our network.

In case of anti-cellulite treatments we recommend a full cycle of 10 sessions for satisfactory results. The results are visible after several treatments in people with faster a metabolism, in people with persistent cellulite and slower metabolism, 2 to 3 cycles of 10 or more treatments are needed and results may vary.


In case of relaxing back/legs or full body massages, the multiple sessions have a cumulative effect if done close together. You will get more out of 5 sessions spread out over 5 weeks, with a 3-4 month break afterward, than out of 5 sessions spread out over 5 months. Our sessions progress to deeper body layers and to related muscle groups when we can see you again within 1-2 weeks. With longer than 2 weeks between sessions, some work will need to be repeated. And it will likely take more total sessions to solve the issue. Once you are out of the pain cycle, regular maintenance sessions once every 4-6 weeks will keep you feeling pain free.

In case of anti-cellulite treatments the best and fastest results are seen having a massage every second day, because the body needs time to “clear” accumulated toxins.


It is important to take 2 to 3 liters of liquid daily during maderotherapy anti-celullite treatments (all types of sugar-free tea allowed) and avoid sweets and carbonated drinks.

Regulated diet and exercising can also contribute to your results.


With maderotherapy treatments you do not lose a lot of weight. Usually clients lose a few pounds which is actually the fluid they lose during lymphatic drainage. Clients with regular diet and exercising in combination with maderotherapy treatments lose weight because maderotherapy massage speeds up your metabolism and regulates the functioning of the lymphatic system.


After completing a number of treatments, the desired results should be maintained regularly. This involves occasional re-treatments (recommended once or twice a month, sometimes once a week, depends about client).

What is collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein of the human body. It is a crucial component of virtually all tissues in the body. The amino acids in collagen form peptides that form long fibres, which in turn give elasticity and structural strength to the body. It is particularly abundant in skin, muscles, joints, hair follicles, nailbeds, the intestinal wall and the walls of blood vessels.

What is marine collagen?

Collagen can only be produced from animal products (plants do not produce collagen). Most commonly, it is produced from the by-products of the beef and pork industry. Marine collagen is produced from fish and is generally considered the finest source of collagen.

How does hydrocollagen work?

In the body, collagen is continuously being degraded and replaced by new collagen – this is called turnover. After reaching the age of 25, the body’s capability of producing the building blocks of collagen is slowly decreasing, leading to the aging of tissues. In a nutshell, Hydrocollagen helps the body maintain the balance of collagen production by dietary supplementation of the crucial building blocks.
