Maderotherapy is a holistic massage technique that uses anatomically designed wooden tools to improve the body’s size and proportions while improving overall health. These instruments allow highly targeted pressure to be applied to problem areas (such as thighs, buttocks, love handles and abdomen). Pressure intensifies the breakdown of fat deposits and fibrous cellulite so that it can be eliminated naturally with other toxins.
The technique involves repetitive movements using different wooden instruments to manipulate targeted areas of muscle, fat and cellulite, stimulating the lymphatic drainage system to remove unnecessary water, fat and toxins from the body. What makes this treatment unique, comparing to other alternatives such as laser, ultrasound cellulite removal or liposuction, is that it stimulates the production of elastin and collagen and eliminates cellulite at its root, with no downtime! It’s a 100% natural, non-invasive method with no contraindications. A series of 10-15 treatments is necessary to achieve the desired results. Maderotherapy has been practised for centuries in the oriental countries, but it took the wave of popularity in the 90’ in Colombia. The word Madero in Spanish means ‘’wood’’ therefore, it’s been called a Wooden Treatment’’or Body Sculpting Treatment.

How it is done?
The technique of Maderotherapy involves a series of movements that are repeated using more than ten different wooden instruments. Applying these instruments to muscles, fat deposits and cellulite, we stimulate the lymphatic system of the body and thereby we release it from accumulated toxins. This release from toxins stimulates the metabolism to burn fat. Also, resistant cellulite pockets are destroyed, the skin swelling decreases and the orange peel syndrome is leveled.
