“One woman I treated with the Contour Light was really great because she was so skeptical. She had a lot of questions, but she ended up purchasing a package and every time she came in she had more questions. She wanted it for weight loss, but has some concerns because she had a lot of autoimmune issues. Up to now she has done three rounds of sessions (36 treatments over 3 months). I don’t even think we know the number of pounds she lost, but she has lost over 15 inches. She used to be bigger, but when I wrap the pads on her, now they overlap so much. When she comes into the office, she looks so good, slimmer, and feels so great. She says she gets so many compliments. She was finally able to lose inches in her hips and legs where she just couldn’t for more than 20 years. She feels so much more energy, is happier. She said, “This just improved my whole quality of life so much.”
