This is a lipotropic injection, a mixture of B complex and MIC compound.
It's not a magic injection that causes weight loss, but rather it increases the metabolism, boosts energy, helps control cravings and more to supplement essential dietary and activity changes to promote weight loss. Patients often also report fuller & healthier hair, less hair loss and cleaner complexion.
Beyond its role in weight loss the MIC injection can help with depression, anxiety and stress.
For weight loss a course of treatment consists of weekly injections for 12 weeks with the option of continuing less frequent treatment as desired. For stress & depression, treatment once every 3-4 weeks is recommended.

Guasha (literally scraping sand) is a superficial massage technique that is gaining in popularity with massage therapists, chiropractors and physiotherapists usually with expensive tools and equipment. Traditionally guasha is simple folk medicine practiced across Asia by every day people with simple tools like soup spoons.
Cupping, or suction therapy, has been around for thousands of years and is a part of traditional folk medicines in nearly every part of the world: China, Australia, Europe and Africa. Essentially a vacuum is made in a container which is placed on the skin which pulls up on the tissues beneath, much like a massage in reverse - pulling up instead of pressing in.
The goal is to release tension in the fascia to increase circulation and improve function.
