Cellulite is fat, but it doesn't
necessarily tie in with your body weight. A person can be thin and have
cellulite. Exercise alone will not eliminate it - not does a fat-free
diet. Elimination involves the body's lymphatic system working
efficiently as part of a well-tuned machine. The lymphatic system is
the system that removes all toxins from the body. As I always tell my
clients, excess fat is a toxin. The skin is actually the body’s largest
elimination organ through perspiration, oil and often other methods, the
skin is an integral part of the lymphatic system.
The technique combines supplementation and manual stimulation with a particular body brush in a sequential pattern of movements. The CRTTM Skin Tightening System teaches how to skin brush with a particular body brush in a sequential pattern of movements to stimulate the lymphatic system and help tighten the skin as inches are lost as well as break up clumps of fat (cellulite) underneath the skin
Body brushing has been popular in Europe for decades but is very time consuming, while the T-Tapp sequence takes less than 10 minutes a day. Cellulite reduction and loss of inches can occur as fast as seven days. Most see dramatic results within 30 days. This special pattern of body brushing accelerates the body's natural ability to release toxins. Great for those with auto-immune disorders to promote healthy tissue with less inflammation. Personally I found that within 4 days of using only the brush I saw improvements in both cellulite and varicose veins and was very excited to add the supplements. The nutrition offered in the supplements has been clinically proven to reverse aging on the skin of the face, to help battle cancer and to balance hormones in the body by providing the proper balance of vitamins, minerals and plant proteins to help heal the body.
After several years of perfecting the CRT™ System and achieving consistent, proven results from the modeling industry T-Tapp now has it available for everyone, at less than $50 per month.

What happens on the outside is only a reflection of the inside. Fine lines, wrinkles, acne and more are all reflections of how well we are working on the inside. Even with access to some of the best skin care chemists in the world because my father worked for Avon, in my late 20’s I couldn't find a solution to painful and embarrassing adult acne and eczema. It wasn’t until I started focusing on my overall health instead of just my skin was I able to learn that beauty is more than skin deep!
The skin is the body's largest elimination organ, so when our digestion, assimilation and elimination are working correctly excess toxins should not accumulate in the skin. If toxins are not moving through preferred pathways they will often show up on our skin.
Whether our skin challenges are with acne or aging, many of the natural remedies I use and share are the same. Stress causes hormonal imbalances differently in each of us. In some, it will break down collagen in the skin and cause aging; while in others, it causes hormonal acne no matter what our age. Controlling hormones, especially those related to stress, is one of the first steps to balancing skin issues. I work with my clients to find stress relieving practices that fit into their lives. These may include deep breathing, Dead Sea mineral salts baths infused with essential oils and more.
In addition to stress, I also help clients explore how nutrition can affect their skin. For example, dark circles can be banished easily by consuming enough B vitamins which are depleted by stress. Antioxidant rich foods will help banish wrinkles, both when eaten and also when applied to the skin in the form of masks and other poultices. Eating a balanced diet full of healthy whole fruits, veggies, grains, omega-rich fatty acids, soy and lean meats can keep the skin from aging from the inside out, and prevent break outs caused by improper digestion. Tall glasses of pure mineral or high oxygen water will also make our skin not only stay looking younger, but help elimination which can help reduce breakouts.
Essential oils have been so helpful to me in combating not only stress and skin issues, but other medically related issues as well that I have begun to share them with my clients. These fragrant oils can be mixed with your favorite unscented natural based lotions or applied in a carrier oil such as olive oil for drier skin and grapeseed oil for more oily skin. Not only do the oils benefit the skin topically but they can lift your mood and reduce stress. I have begun to study the medicinal properties that have been researched and documented throughout history and been amazed in how powerful they have been for many besides myself.
One of the best ways to help skin regenerate and stay younger looking is to get adequate high quality rest each night. This includes winding down each evening with time for yourself and a cleansing routine that treats the skin gently and is designed for your personal needs.
In private skin care sessions, I will do your personal profile based on skin type, ethnic heritage and specific challenges. I will give you my personal spa secrets for at home facials, custom made cleansers, masques and scrubs from your kitchen for pennies. And help you design a regimen that fits into your life and needs, whether you have hours each week or minutes to devote to your skin.

Now available an HBK EXCLUSIVE! A cellulite removal system through my homeopath that uses a Far Infrared WRAP material. It has two lotions that come with the wrap and you put the first that helps the body detox on, wrap yourself in what seems like saran wrap. You then have to HEAT the area so I usually do it before I workout, then workout IN the wrap, otherwise you would have to use a blow dryer, sauna or other means to heat up. Then unwrap, and you do the second, the Firm Up cream. I am EXCITED to offer this service to my students when they come to class for $25 and I am looking into working with my Homeopath to be able to sell those kits through her, but I am not sure I can sell it, stuff like that often HAS to come from health practitioners like her. I first learned of FIR technology when I first got into T-Tapp it was offered by the company Nikken who Teresa was representing for their Weighted sneakers, but she liked a lot of their products. Nikken still offers sport and support wraps but they do not offer the wrap.
Far Infrared is the wave length of light below the visual spectrum. It cant' be seen, but it is felt as HEAT and radiated from the ground. Problem is we get separated from it as we build concrete structures and go UP in our development. So we lose the balancing and healing element of it as we do that. There are FIR saunas available and my homeopath uses a high intensity one called a "Hot House" to accelerate the body's ability to detox and heal. You can learn more here! The wrap that is made with this concept is woven with ceramic fibers that reflect the body's natural energy back into it but they also BALANCE the body and help pull toxins FROM it. This is why the wrap works so well. Cellulite is lymphotropic which means it sits in your lymph nodes and has to be drained from them, it also means you need a LOT of water after a treatment. I recommend each client drink an additional 16 oz of water after each workout with the wrap.
And the Results LAST....check out 2 YEARS later how my skin is still smooth enough to be a MODEL!
