Cellulite is a visible disorder of the connective tissue's normal functioning, which is caused by the accumulation of toxins, the local increase in fat at specific points of the body and the swelling of adipocytes (fat cells). It is further observed during pregnancy, especially in the last five months because of weight gain and hormonal changes. In general hormonal disorders, from puberty until menopause, as well as the improper functioning of the thyroid gland, can be the cause for its appearance.
The main types of cellulite are 1) the soft, which exists in large surface areas, is located between muscle and skin and is movable, namely slipping through the tissues, and 2) the hard, which is compact and condensed and is accompanied by pain due to the compression of nerve endings.
It usually appears in the lower limbs (thighs, inner side of the knees, buttocks), abdomen and arms.
Using special creams and essential oils against cellulite and localized fat, we apply the proper pressure on the points where cellulite is identified, stimulating lymph and thereby achieving cellular renewal, toxins' removal and the reduction of adipocytes' volume. Hyperemia is brought about, which accelerates metabolism and improves blood circulation, while reducing edema that coexists with cellulite.
Massage is given in such a way to avoid developing bruises on the skin.
The duration of the session is approximately 40 minutes.
