13 Apr Effective Anti-Cellulite Massage by a professional therapist, why does it work?
Why get an anti-cellulite massage protocol?
Anti-cellulite massage provided by a well-trained therapist is an action principle that is recognized and proven by the scientific community. Yet stimulating the surface of the skin, it sends a signal deep down to the cells (ex: fat cells and fibroblasts) to provoke a physiological response (example: activation of collagen and elastin production or activation of lipolysis). It actually works, when creams or diets don’t help.
Trust massage therapists trained to perform effective gestures.
The techniques used in anti-cellulite massage act on the fat cells and help them to detach from the tissues and reabsorb evenly. The professional massage is performed locally in areas affected by cellulite. The body parts that are usually prone to be concerned are the hips, the legs, the buttocks and the abs.
Understand the skin layers and type of cellulite to provide effective massage with visible results.
Our constantly trained therapists know many anti-cellulite massages and techniques and can treat different skin areas with a very wide range of applications.
Our therapists identify first your cellulite type in order to be able to practice the right cellulite massage. This step is essential to determine the protocol and improve positively the connective tissue dysfunctions to get the best results.
Type 1: Adipose Cellulite
It is a direct result of our diet often too high in fat and sugar. The therapist will need to knead to remove the fat inlaid under the skin usually in the thighs and buttocks and combine it with the rolling technique.
Kneading is the adequate Anti-cellulite massage technique to treat adipose cellulite.
Type 2: Fibrous cellulite
The most tenacious type of cellulite. It results from a degradation of the collagen that surrounds the fat cells and traps them under the skin. The therapist will perform a palpate massage that relaxes this feeling of hardness and dissolves the fat fiber and combine it with the rolling technique.
Palpate Anti-cellulite massage is the adequate technique to treat fibrous cellulite.
Type 3: Aqueous cellulite
Often diffuse, this type of cellulite is linked to water retention and poor circulation of blood. The therapist will practice pressing and kneading massage up to the hip and combine it with the rolling technique.
Kneading and pressing is the adequate Anti-cellulite massage technique to get rid of aqueous cellulite
Rolling Technique to get rid of your cellulite for good
Depending on your cellulite type the therapist will use different gestures but always combined with the rolling technique. The therapist uses both hands to gently pull the skin using three directions of rotation, depending on the desired objectives. The various folds treat different types of tissue, including cellulite, adipose, edematous, fibrous, adherent, and inflammatory, thin, fragile, and relaxed tissue. Treatments are administered with series of appointments determined by the therapist. Treatment consists of the ROLL’Up, ROLL’In and ROLL’Out action gently yet intensively conditions skin tissue to eliminate fat deposits, revitalize blood and lymphatic circulation, and reactivate lipolysis (e.g. ROLL’In action is responsible for more than 70% of the fat elimination). With the multiple rotational differentials of the ROLL modalities, this also is able to stimulate the collagen and elastin production and firm slackening skin (i.e. ROLL’Out).
Rolling Technique – the plus for an efficient Anti-cellulite massage.
