Massaging Away Cellulite
Many of us love to get a massage. However we see is as indulging, something that is spent on with discretionary income. Many people don’t see it as a necessity. What many people fail to realize is that massage therapy has many positive results. It can help us relax, reduce stress and increase blood flow. In addition to these positive results, it has been found to help reduce and eliminate cellulite. Let me explain how.
Massaging Cellulite While it is not commonly discussed, there are two different kinds of cellulite. There is hard cellulite and soft cellulite. The cellulite that is most commonly seen in pictures and magazines is soft cellulite. It is the dimply saggy skin that we have all come to know and not love. Hard cellulite, on the other hand, usually affects athletes and those who are muscular. It is called hard because it is attached to the existing muscle and, thankfully, it is not as noticeable as soft cellulite. Soft cellulite is not commonly attached to the muscle.
The best part about massaging away cellulite is that you can do it yourself. This means you don’t have to worry about having to pay out thousands of dollars a year to you’re your body looking great. All you need is Cellulite Cream and a rubber glass.
First, you need to thoroughly apply the cellulite cream to your legs, or affected area. Once this is complete, apply the rubber glass to your trouble spots and massage them with the glass. This creates a suction, or vacuum, that brings the blood to the surface. This increased blood flow helps reduce the appearance of cellulite in short order, as long as you massage your cellulite daily. Similar to body wrap and ultrasound treatments, this remedy helps release the toxins and fluid that form with fatty deposits to create soft cellulite.
Many doctors find this to be a safe and easy way to improve your cellulite condition. It is non-invasive and it doesn’t cost a fortune. Therefore, almost anyone can do it with positive results. If you would rather leave it to a professional, many spas have Anti-Cellulite massages available. Keep in mind that these will vary in price depending on the length of the massage and the spa that you choose. These spas may also use natural herbs in conjunction with massage therapy to further treat your cellulite.
Cellulite can be a terribly frustrating condition for those who are affected by it. Many men and women have had cellulite since they were young. It does not discriminate based on gender or age. It can pop up anywhere, on anyone. Genetics play a role, but various treatments can help reduce its effects. Massage therapy is one of those treatments. If done the affected party, it can be a cost-effective solution to a nagging issue. If he or she would rather recruit a professional, the results may be better or worse. Either way, make sure whatever direction you go that you are completely comfortable with the remedy you choose.
Cellulite can affect people of all ages and body types and can be notoriously difficult to get rid of. While there are certainly no miracle cures, using specially formulated creams and treatments along with a healthy diet and exercise plan can reduce the appearance of the dimpled skin affected by cellulite. Creams and lotions that contain stimulating ingredients such as caffeine are particularly beneficial as they help move toxins out the body while other natural ingredients are used to condition the skin, giving it a firmer, tighter appearance which further reduces the look of the affected area.
