Cellulite Massage Therapy

These days massage is becoming the no.1 anti-cellulite therapy. It makes your skin look and feel good, by making it more toned and your limbs by and large more flexible.

What is Cellulite?

  • When the body develops surface levels of stored fat, resulting in unappealing and bumpy skin, it is called cellulite.
  • Cellulite is different from fat because it is lumpy and takes place in certain areas of the body. It is normally seen in women though men are affected by this difficulty. Cellulite is not essentially a factor of obesity even though it is seen that fat women tend to be more prone to cellulite.
  • You should pick clothes that are made out of a woven mesh fabric if you want to go in for a cellulite massage. As this complements your natural body activities, and provides a beneficial exercise to the adipose tissue, and to the skin.
  • Cause of Cellulite
  • On average, cellulite appears when a woman is about 25 to 35 years of age, but it can even take place earlier.
  • Cellulite is seen to develop among women during periods of hormonal change like puberty, pregnancy, menopause and PMS.
  • Cellulite is caused due to a number of reasons, hormones being a primary cause.
  • Aging leads to loss of skin tone due to reduced elasticity of connective tissue. This can also be a reason for the formation of cellulite.
  • Lack of exercise along with inadequate water intake and improper diet can lead to cellulite in the subcutaneous layer.

Treatment of Cellulite
