Humans are always looking for ways to refine their figures, from crunches and firming creams to spending the weekend in a rock tumbler. Polish up your parts more comfortably with today's Groupon: for $49, you get two Electro-Slim body-sculpting sessions at Marie-Jeanne Takis MD in San Bruno (a $200 value).
Dr. Marie-Jeanne Takis, a practitioner in the Madame Et Monsieur–slimming-salon franchise, helps patients of all ages and body types tone their physiques during one-hour sessions with Electro-Slim's FDA-approved pulsing electrodes. After collecting measurements and discussing treatment goals, a technician adheres said electrodes directly to the patient's skin and bombards areas of cellulite with a rhythmic onslaught of electricity that causes site muscles to contract. Some say this passive exercise bears a similar sensation to that of a deep massage and is as invigorating as hot-wiring an ice-cream truck. Clientele include adults and children struggling with weight issues, gym buffs hoping to tackle stubborn problem spots, and lightning bugs in need of a recharge.
