It is hardly possible to find a more popular procedure than anti-cellulite massage. But few people know that its benefits lie not only in the effect of weight loss, but also in the overall healing of the skin..
And so, let’s see what anti-cellulite massage can give:
Improving or even resuming proper capillary circulation;
Improving intercellular metabolism;
The withdrawal of excess intercellular fluid, which can create the effect of “obesity”. Often women deal with the problem of extra centimeters, torture themselves with diets and various procedures, and the problem turns out to be much simpler – there is too much intercellular fluid, and when it starts to go away naturally – the volumes disappear like magic;
Stagnation in the body is eliminated, and the appearance of new ones is prevented;
Everyone is annoyed by the so-called “dimples” that appear, as a rule, on the hips and buttocks. This problem has nothing to do with weight; it is a problem that is associated with lymphatic fluid, namely its slow movement through vessels against gravity. Accelerating its movement to the lymph nodes will solve the problem with dimples on the skin. Improving the functioning of the lymphatic system has a positive effect on the body as a whole – you will become less sick with viral diseases;
- Edema will decrease or disappear altogether;
- The condition of the skin and its structure will improve;
- The muscles will tone and the soft tissues will become elastic;
- Headache reduction.
And this is not a complete list of all that you get when using anti-cellulite massage.
Cellulitis and its causes
Cellulite is not a problem of excess weight, it is a skin problem that is associated with structural changes in the subcutaneous fat layer, which lead to impaired microcirculation and lymphatic fluid outflow.

Alcohol, sweet, caffeine. This is not to say that the use of these products will necessarily lead to cellulite, but the fact that their presence will increase your chances of acquiring cellulite is for sure;
Oddly enough, but the tan, with which all so diligently mask the pits on the skin, most of all leads to their occurrence, since under the influence of sunlight, collagen and elastin fibers are destroyed, which makes the skin thinner and less elastic;
The presence of food allergies – there is a delay in the withdrawal of food from the body, which leads to its decay and the appearance of toxins;
Failure in the hormonal background;
Pregnancy, during which there is immediately a number of factors that can not positively affect the skin. Firstly, this is a gradual weight gain and its abrupt dropping, secondly, hormonal changes, thirdly, delayed fluid output, malnutrition, lack of trace elements and vitamins, lack of sleep.
