The Creation of Craniosacral Therapy: A Modality that Can Benefit Everyone by Abi Keene

It was the early 70’s and Dr. John Upledger, D.O., O.M.M., was assisting on an operation on one of his patients.

This greatly roused his curiosity.

Non-Invasive Body Sculpting Comes to the Hudson Valley

Diane Kenny, certified Lokkima operator, has opened a practice in the Hudson Valley specialized in non-invasive fat reduction. “Cryogenic Lipolysis or Fat Freezing is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure for patients who wish to reduce fat on specific parts of their bodies,” she explains. “It is a natural process, where the adipose—or fatty—tissue is cooled, which causes the fat cells to die and be excreted following the treatment. Cryolipo uniquely addresses fat cells without harming any of the surrounding tissues.”
