Niagara Gazette — Marie Custode could not figure out why she wasn’t losing weight.
The Lewiston resident worked out five days a week, often with a personal trainer. And she carefully watched her diet. She just didn’t seem to be making any progress.
Then she signed up for nine sessions with Margie Mokhiber of Slender Inspirations and finally, she said, dropped a dress size.
Along with diet consultations, Mokhiber, a certified nutritionist, provided Cold Laser Light Therapy (a non-surgical procedure) as well as full body vibration platform therapy. And while she uses what she says are some cutting-edge electronics, she added that weight loss under her guidance begins the old fashioned way, through diet and exercise.
“When my clients come in we first do a food and exercise plan, and then we do a cleanse,” Mokhiber said.
Each session involves a half hour on the treatment bed where she applies the laser delivery system, a series of wires attached to thin blocks placed upon the body treatment areas.
“They call it a laser-like treatment,” Mokhiber said of the cold light laser, which she says is pain-free and has no side effects.
While the patient lies on the bed, head phones deliver a positive message designed to encourage weight loss, created by Dr. Patrick Porter, a hypnotist. The patient listens to the messages as the light lasers pulse.
“What (the cold light laser) does is open up the fat cells and pull water from them. The water is dumped into the lymphatic system,” she explained. The lymphatic system is stimulated to eliminate the water through a full body vibration platform, which the client stands upon and which vibrates at rapid speeds to help the body rid itself of toxins, she said.
The combination of treatments provides the loss of inches and weight, Mokhiber added.
