At Home Anti-Cellulite Massage
If you are looking for an effective, convenient and inexpensive anti-cellulite treatment, then you may wish to consider an anti-cellulite massage routine in the comfort of your own home.
To reduce the appearance of cellulite, you need to restore the connective tissues in your body, by increasing blood circulation and hydrating the problem areas. This can be achieved through anti-cellulite massages, as well as improving your diet and lifestyle.
Personal massage therapy will not make your cellulite disappear completely, however it should help to diminish its appearance when performed regularly, as part of your daily routine.
Before you begin any cellulite massage technique, it is important to apply a lotion or oil to the area you wish to massage. This will allow you to manipulate the skin with ease and without causing any discomfort. You will also benefit from using a specially formulated cellulite cream or a product that uses essential oils such as ginger, geranium or grapefruit to help break down any toxins in your body.
Here are a few of our recommended anti-cellulite massage techniques for you to try at home:
Kneading massage – Using both of your hands, you must squeeze and lift sections your skin in a similar method used for kneading dough. This technique is particularly effective in areas such as the buttocks, hips and thighs to help boost blood circulation and break down the fat deposits stored beneath your skin.
Knuckle massage – Knuckles make great massaging tools! Use your knuckles to pummel the affected areas, making sure to always massage towards the heart. This pummelling method will help to soften and then disperse any fat deposits away from the connective tissues. Your metabolic system will then work to flush these deposits out of your body for good.
Dry body brushing – Instead of using your hands, this popular massage technique uses a special brush, or body massaging glove, to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Using a brush or massaging glove daily is a fast and effective way to promote healthy skin and boost your circulation. Brush your entire body firmly, using a combination of circular movements and long strokes towards your heart.
