What Massage is Best for Cellulite?

Are you looking for a way to reduce the appearance of cellulite? Massage therapy is a great option for softening cellulite and improving your skin's appearance. Lymphatic drainage massage and dry suction cups are two of the most popular treatments for cellulite. Regular treatments are recommended to get the best results, so why not make massage part of your regular self-care routine? To massage your belly, start by making a fist and then move your hands in circular motions from left to right. Then, grab a fold of skin and move it towards your groin with firm but gentle movements.

Massage therapy comes in many different forms and several have been used to treat cellulite. Deep tissue massage is one of the most popular treatments because it helps improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. The main purpose of anti-cellulite massage is to disperse fat deposits, but it also helps stimulate the tissues that surround cellulite formations, improving blood circulation and lymphatic functions. A real cellulite massage can also reduce fibrosis, low-grade chronic inflammation, and increase skin firmness.

It's impossible to massage the back of the thighs and buttocks, where most cellulite is found. If you have the time and energy to massage the front, outer, and inner thighs for 20-30 minutes three times a week (always leave a day off between massages), you'll get good results if you combine it with a healthy diet and exercise. Dry suction cups are another popular treatment for cellulite. Instead of a pump sucking air out of the vessel like with electrical machines, a flame ignites inside the glass vacuum, creating a temporary vacuum.

The cup attaches quickly to the skin and then a rolling paper massage is performed with the suction. Even vacuum massage without rollers will lift the skin, create a skin fold (cruder) and then laminate (more raw) the skin. Massages can be done in professional massage parlors or at home. Pressotherapy offers an effective massage for lymphatic drainage and increased circulation that's just as good as MLD or deep tissue massage.

The best machines also maintain a continuous pressure gradient, so it's like receiving a firm lymphatic massage while wearing graduated pressure compression stockings. If you remove the brush and use your hands with oil, you'll get a normal massage instead of brushing. These are the tissues that are intended to be affected by all techniques used for deep tissue massage, in order to restore balance in the musculoskeletal system. When performing anti-cellulite massage, don't be afraid to apply pressure; massages of this type should be done with firm and strong movements. Ultrasound provides a local “micromassage” of the tissues it's applied to, thanks to its alternating pressure waves that impact treated tissues. But can a massage gun help with cellulite? There are many potential treatments for cellulite based on research and personal reports, but massage guns seem to be gaining ground as a cellulite treatment method in recent years.

A massage gun can be useful because it provides percussion therapy, which is a form of massage that uses repetitive pulses to mobilize muscles and other soft tissue.
