Karen Windsor, volunteer at Talk Lipoedema, took part in a Lipoedema study at HYPOXI-Studio Chiswick. She is very active in increasing awareness of the disease.
In her own words she shares her experience with us.
“My name is Karen Windsor and I’m diagnosed with lipoedema and other lymphatic disorders. I started using HYPOXI, my journey has been great, with mostly ups. The only thing that I struggled with is my knees, unfortunately they are damaged through years of miss diagnosis.
I’ve got osteoarthritis. When I first started HYPOXI couldn’t put my knees together because of the lipoedema fat (fat pads), after a month this greatly reduced and to my delight I could.
I remember the day I started and my measurements, Maria said put your knees together and I couldn’t, I just thought this was normal, a month later my measurements day came and I could suddenly put them together, it was such an achievement I cried. Something so silly was something so great to me.
At the start, I was convinced because the weight wasn’t shifting that this wasn’t working, yet I was following everything to the latter including adding my own methods. It was another measurements day, to my great surprise I’d lost over 40cms it was nearly a month and 1/2 into the program, I was so over whelmed I phoned Maria in tears, I had to thank her for giving me this opportunity it was the best present ever. I started to feel stronger I noticed so many changes in my body from look to feel to pain decrease. I also have fibromyalgia and I can honestly say the symptoms have changed so much. Even my rheumatologist was shocked.
Dorota at the Chiswick branch was my coach, my friend, my backbone, she helped me no end with this journey. I’m so utterly grateful to HYPOXI for helping me change the dimensions of these illnesses, this isn’t a cure, there is no cure but you can certainly turn the clock back on all of this. Life is for living and after 30 operations and years of pain close to full disability using braces and crutches etc I found HYPOXI, nothing has worked for me like this treatment. I continue to fascia blast, eat a ketogenic diet and do low impact exercise and lift weights. I believe HYPOXI combined with my own methods is what has helped me change my life, my trial is over now but I’m continuing on with my methods, now that my body is fully metabolised thanks to the clever science of HYPOXI. I did 36 sessions this is my reveal my journey. If you want to follow how I will maintain and take the loss further follow me at @kazzzyb_talk_chick.
Since finishing my HYPOXI-Treatments, I’ve been following my own methods because of how HYPOXI has metabolised my body. In total, I lost 58.5cms from the lower half of my body through HYPOXI. HYPOXI gave me a gift and I’m determined to make this work, I might have to go back to HYPOXI one day but if I do I know this treatment works. It’s not invasive surgery, it carries no risks. I can do a session and go back to my life, no recovery time.
This journey has been an emotional one, lipoedema is an evil illness because you are just classed as overweight or fat, you’re not, you have abnormal fat cells in the body and now there is a treatment that can help. Thank you HYPOXI, thank you Maria and thank you Dorota in Chiswick for being the best support and friend and helping me on this journey.”

So here’s my #hypoxi results it’s been a mad journey of so many ups and a few downs because of my knees. However my body is fully #metabolised ( hypoxi is not about weightloss the end goal is to loose weight, the science is to metabolise the body, once your metabolism works properly you can achieve unfortunately in Lipoedema that’s easier said then done ) and it’s time for me to go it alone, this trial is not over this next step is about me finding a way to maintain and take these results further, I will beat #lipoedema I might have it forever but I will find a way to live with this illness.
Whats fantastic is the positive response I’ve had from so many of you and that some of you are following down my route, not just with #hypoxi but with everything else #fasciablasting #rld #exercise #lifting #ketogenicdiet #compression
My goal now is to tone up and loose more.

For the last few years HYPOXI has worked closely with women who suffer from Lipoedema, especially in Germany. More and more doctors have been sending their patients to an Authorised HYPOXI-Studio for our holistic approach to treating the condition, after they become aware of the benefits HYPOXI is having on this chronical disease.
Nina Blakemore, well known Plus size model and stylist, has successfully worked as a curve model for around 20 years in photographic, catwalk and television was quite surprised when she was diagnosed with Lipoedema back in 2014.
Today also, Nina is happy to get sustainable support from HYPOXI-Training. Lipoedema is a chronic and progressive disorder of the adipose tissue that mostly affects the lower half of the body. It’s often called painful fat syndrome, and it mainly affects women. It is marked by the abnormal buildup of fat cells. Lipoedema can occur at any age but the disease generally manifests itself during puberty, pregnancy or other times of hormonal change. It is believed that up to 11% of the female population have some form of Lipoedema and some even know nothing about it.
Lipoedema suffers manage the condition with a certain type of diet and exercise along with compression and lymph drainage techniques and some go to the drastic measures and opt for liposuction.
During 2016, studies were done using the HYPOXI-Method and have had some amazing results. Following on from these positive findings HYPOXI has asked Nina to take part in further trials.
“Over the last few months the Lipoedema has become a lot worse and I’ve been suffering with a lot larger and more painful legs that have been weighing me down and affecting me physically and emotionally. So, I’m really hoping HYPOXI will help to manage the pain and get the condition under control” says Nina.
A two month intensive HYPOXI-Training was arranged at VILA VITA Parc’s HYPOXI-Studio set in the beautiful grounds of the luxury 5-star resort & spa in the Algarve, Portugal.
The Certified HYPOXI-Coach was with Nina every step of the way from applying the HYPOXI-Method, monitoring the results, giving expert advice on nutrition and generally supporting Nina to make sure she was comfortable throughout the process.
During this period, Nina had made many truthful Vloggs highlighting the ups and downs of a Lipoedema suffer, but has always been very positive about her HYPOXI treatments and how she has been cared for by the Certified HYPOXI-Coach.
“I attended the beautiful Vila Vita Parc 3 times a week for my HYPOXI course. Margarida was my HYPOXI-Coach, she was absolutely amazing! The support and advice that I received from her was outstanding. Yes, HYPOXI is a real commitment but I absolutely loved my sessions and really looked forward to them. The relief that I felt within the first couple of weeks was unbelievable. My legs felt much lighter and more sculpted and incredibly, the ‘heavy’ feeling started to subside. My final measurements showed a 32 cm loss in circumference. HYPOXI may not be a complete cure for Lipoedema but with ongoing maintenance sessions, it definitely eases the pain caused by the condition and also helps you feel much more confident” says Nina.
Nina is a great ambassador for the HYPOXI-Method and Lipoedema. Follow her activities on social media:
