Frequently asked questions

Is HYPOXI® training suitable for me?
All HYPOXI® machines have been designed to remove stubborn fat from areas such as the stomach, buttocks, hips and thighs. Each machine is specific and chosen to meet your individual goals by our trained therapists. Removal of cellulite and fatty acids from problem areas leads to a slimmer, healthier body with increased vitality and energy. HYPOXI® is suitable for both Women and Men.

Is it dangerous or painful?
No, it is completely non-invasive and pain free. All HYPOXI® machines are completely safe The machine monitors your pulse rate to ensure that your heart rate is always below your maximum fat burning heart rate. This is normally between 100 and 145 beats per minute, depending on your age and physical condition. We also offer V02 max testing to scientifically establish where you burn the highest amounts of fat during exercise. Our qualified HYPOXI® therapists will take you through a full consultation and medical questionnaire before commencing treatment.

Can I do HYPOXI® training on an ongoing basis?
Yes, once you have completed your initial course we have a number of maintenance options you can choose from. Many clients are happy to drop the number of sessions they complete each week back to one or two to keep the positive effects of the HYPOXI® training working for them.

How do I commence a course of HYPOXI® training?
Please phone or visit us to book a free trial and consultation. A therapist will then assess your requirements. The free consultation is also an opportunity to learn more about this unique system to ensure that you obtain the best results from your treatment.

What actually happens during the session?
HYPOXI®

After the initial consultation, you are fitted with a neoprene ‘skirt’ or vacuum blanket which provides an airtight seal around the pod. You then step into the pod and onto an exercise bike. The ‘skirt’ forms a seal around your waist ensuring a snug fit for the vacuum to increase the blood flow to your hips, thighs and buttocks. You then GENTLY pedal for 30 minutes.

VACUNAUT
After the initial consultation you are provided with your undersuit. These suits or tight fitted clothing, are essential as they help ensure immaculate hygiene whilst also improving the effectiveness of the treatments. After changing into the undersuit, you are then helped into the unique Vacunaut Pressure and connected to the machine. A session, lasting 30 minutes, incorporates GENTLE walking whilst the Vacunaut suit alternates high and low pressure around your waist and lower back. The sensation is quite enjoyable!

What results can I expect?
The majority of people see a fat loss equivalent to one clothing size every 4 – 5 weeks.
The HYPOXI® machine is also fantastic for getting rid of cellulite from the buttocks and thighs.

How often do I come for the training?
Studies have shown it is best to use the HYPOXI® and Vacunaut 3 times a week, leaving a rest day in between treatments.
The ballancer® can be used every day.

Are there people for whom HYPOXI® training is not suitable?

  • Pregnant Women
  • Pathological Conditions
  • Inflamed Varicose Veins
  • High or Low Blood Pressure
  • Any kind of Inflammation or Infection

Are there any side effects?
No side effects at all. A lot of people report feeling extremely rejuvenated after their treatment.

Can you do the treatments if you are not very fit?
Both the HYPOXI® and the Vacunaut are done in a vacuum environment where the patient’s heart beat is constantly monitored at the optimum ‘fat burning zone’. This means training can be carried out at a very low heart rate, if necessary. This training does not require any particular degree of physical fitness.

What are the nutritional guidelines?
We advise our clients to consume a healthy, balanced, nutritious diet and drink plenty of water. This includes eating carbohydrates low on the Glycaemic Index to provide sustained energy throughout the day, watching your simple sugar intake, eating less saturated fat and not eating too late at night. Depending on the time of your appointment, you therapist will advise on the best foods and timing to eat prior your session. After training it is a good idea to eat lean proteins such as chicken, turkey or fish accompanied with leafy or steamed vegetables. In depth nutritional consultations can be provided as an addition to the course to enhance optimal results.

What to wear for HYPOXI® training?
HYPOXI®

Long loose trousers, such as tracksuit bottoms, a regular training top and trainers.

VACUNAUT
A pair of cycling shorts and fitted long sleeve t-shirt or training top. This ensures a good, tight seal on the Vacunaut wetsuit, helping the fat burning process. If you need to wear a bra for the training, please ensure that it is a sports bra with no underwires as these may pierce the suit. If you are taking a free trial on the Vacunaut, please bring a short sleeved t-shirt and a pair of cycling shorts or leggings.

Can you do anything wrong when using the HYPOXI-Method?
In all authorised HYPOXI®-Studios, you are supervised by qualified coaches. They tailor the HYPOXI-Method® to your individual needs and continually supervise the performance, progress and success of your training. Furthermore, your coach helps you design a well- balanced nutrition plan.

Do I have to exercise as well?
Additional exercise immediately following your HYPOXI-Training sessions may have negative effects on the results and is therefore not recommended. However 2-3 hrs before your HYPOXI-Training and any other time, you are free to do exercise and at Body Brilliant we actively encourage to do some sort of resistance training and cardiovascular exercise to optimise your results alongside your HYPOXI® Course.

How much does it cost?
Session prices range between – 175 Dhs to 225 Dhms,
however you would need to undertake a course of treatments to see the real benefits the HYPOXI – Method® can give, the length of which would depend on your goals and how much you are wanting or have to lose from a targeted area.
