Use the best anti cellulite massage techniques
Cellulite seems to be one of the beauty issues that plagues many women these days. Judging by how many articles and posts about anti cellulite treatments and remedies we read almost daily, it's clear that cellulite is a problem that needs to be solved.
Most sources can agree on the fact that the dimpled appearance of cellulite occurs due to problems/imbalance in the connective tissue and fat in a person’s body, but there are many theories about what may cause this imbalance. It does seem that hormones, diet, lifestyle and genetics all play a role but they're not making it definite. Although overweight individuals tend to have a higher chance of getting cellulite, many thin women complain of it as well.
Today we're discussing anti cellulite massage techniques.
What kind of cellulite massage is the best?
There are several traditional massaging techniques that aren't only comfortable and relaxing, but also reduce cellulite. Definitely, massage effects are not instant and therefore, they need to be done regularly and by professional hands. Certain kinds of cream and oil can be used as massage companion to reduce cellulite formation and appearance. Some of the most techniques used in cellulite massages include:
- the brush anti cellulite massage. Anti cellulite brushing massage is getting popular (you've probably read about dry skin brushing already). It is done by brushing the affected areas using a special-designed cellulite brush. The purpose is to let the firm bristles stimulate blood circulation and release blocked vessels. This is also useful for breaking up the twisted connective tissues to let the cellulite fade.
- the kneading anti cellulite massage. This type of anti cellulite massage employs the oldest massaging techniques of squeezing and lifting. Finger and hand kneading techniques are employed. The purpose is to stimulate blood flow in order to loosen the tied up fats.
- the knuckle anti cellulite massage. Knuckle technique employs the use of knuckle to give pressure to affected area. This will break fat deposits down and create better blood circulation.
- the wringing anti cellulite massage. This employs wringing technique by grasping the flesh on the affected area and twist it like we do to our wet fabrics. This technique’s purpose is reducing the lumpiness caused by broken connective tissues. This is a very important treatment for flabby areas, such as upper thighs and buttocks.
I recommend that you try different types of cellulite massages in order to find the right one for your skin type and structure. Having said that, as long as the technique aims the tissues and is able to promote blood circulation, that technique is worth trying. Proper blood circulation is really important for skin cells repair and for breaking up fat deposits, which eventually will make your cellulite less visible.
