Los Angeles, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/24/2014 -- In May 27, 2014 article posted on the website of New York Magazine, a French beauty publicist opined that French women are obsessed with weight and therefore don’t get fat. Lymphatic drainage massage with thoracic therapy is the French secret to combating cellulite. (see goo.gl/576AML)

“It’s difficult to think that American women are any less obsessed with their weight than French women,” says Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills. “Though the woman interviewed for the article mentions exercise and portion control, both of which I recommend, I don’t believe there’s a healthy connection between an obsession and maintaining a healthy body weight.”

According to the woman interviewed for the story, French women generally don’t go in for American-style boot camp fitness programs. French women prefer to avoid weight gain by taking precautionary measures such as eating a light lunch in order to avoid packing on weight from eating extravagant dinners. It is common to see magazine racks in Paris filled in April with glossy magazines offering various approaches to weight loss.

Further according to the article, lymphatic drainage can be used to expel toxins that build up in the body. Combining facial and body lymphatic drainage helps French women remain beautiful and healthy. The publicist interviewed for the report stated that she lost one dress size after just one week of lymphatic drainage treatments.

“I don’t think, unfortunately, that there’s very much scientific data to back up the article's claims for lymphatic drainage massage with thoracic therapy,” says Dr. Ourian. “Because I practice evidence-based medicine, I don’t offer this treatment to our patients. I believe that Trans Dermal Acoustic Therapy offers superior anti-cellulite benefits.”
