The fight against cellulite often seems like an impossible mission, but with a comprehensive approach that includes the use of massage and techniques that consolidate its effect, you can easily achieve the desired result. We understand the nuances of the issue in our material.
Cellulite is one of the most common beauty problems that becomes a headache for many women. To get rid of it, a variety of means are used, but in most cases the lack of consistency and the lack of an integrated approach negate all efforts.
Today, among the ways to combat cellulite, anti-cellulite massage has proven itself especially well, but even in its case it is important to take into account a number of additional recommendations and nuances, without which the result will not be long-lasting. Together with the co-founder of the specialized studio Sergey Perushkin, we tell you how and how effectively anti-cellulite massage works and whether there are ways to enhance the positive effect it has on problem areas.
What is cellulite?
Many people know how cellulite looks visually, but few people understand how and why it appears. Cellulite itself is a consequence of a structural change in subcutaneous fat, which occurs as a result of a malfunction of metabolic processes in tissues.
Most often they happen because of the prolonged pressure exerted on them: for example, when we move a little, the tissues are deficient in oxygen and nutrients, as a result of which “fat traps” are formed.
At the moment when the formation of fat cells increases in them, they begin to intensively squeeze each other out and form a characteristic lumpiness, which is the visual manifestation of cellulite.
How does massage help fight cellulite?
It is widely believed that the fight against cellulite is almost always doomed to failure and it is simply impossible to get rid of it, but this is not the case at all. The key task in the fight against cellulite is to try to get rid of interstitial edema and restore normal blood supply and nutrition of tissues — professional anti-cellulite massage is aimed at just such an effect.
It is worth paying attention to the fact that in order to perform it at home, it is necessary to carefully master all the necessary techniques, otherwise there is a risk of making cellulite even more noticeable. Therefore, in order to save time and effort and achieve maximum effect, we recommend contacting specialized studios directly.
The master begins with the use of lymphatic drainage techniques that reduce swelling by stimulating the work of muscles and blood vessels. “There are cases when girls lose weight by several kilograms at once,” says Sergey Perushkin. — But there is one caveat here: all the weight leaving at this moment is excess fluid. Therefore, it is not worth waiting for a miraculous effect on weight from massage: without proper nutrition and training, fat and muscle mass will change slightly.”
As soon as the swelling subsides, the master begins to work on toning muscles and tissues to normalize blood supply. Long-term results can be achieved after two weeks from the beginning of massage procedures: due to improved blood circulation and reduced swelling, the likelihood of cellulite is significantly reduced.
How to enhance the effect of massage?
It is important to take into account that in order to get a visible result from an anti—cellulite massage, the required number of sessions is required – as a rule, it is up to four weeks, that is, up to three visits to the salon per week. In the Lay Back Massage studio, you can choose programs designed for 5, 10 and 15 sessions that will quickly restore the skin tone and smooth contour.
The frequency of anti-cellulite massage primarily depends on your lifestyle: if you have a sedentary job, you do not exercise and do not follow the balance of nutrition enough, you will have to visit the masseur several times a year. A healthy lifestyle has a positive effect on blood supply and serves as an excellent prevention of cellulite.
If you don’t have time for regular fitness, but your work is located far from home, try to walk at least part of this distance every day, and after a few weeks you will definitely notice an improvement in your skin condition.
Does corporate massage practice at your work? Be sure to try it, because even a short 15-minute session has a strong healing effect not only on the problem areas of the body, but also on the body as a whole.
“Massage therapists often emphasize that massage is not only about beauty and appearance,” comments Sergey Perushkin. — First of all, it has health benefits. Due to the improvement of blood supply in the tissues and the elimination of edema, the body has a systemic healing effect. We not only look better, but also feel positive changes within ourselves.”
