First we have to identify that you have cellulite ?
Cellulite is fat that forms beneath the skin causing lumpy orange peal affect skin over the buttocks, thighs & abdomen. So do we think that massage will help cellulite ?
Why do we get cellulite ?
It appears when fat cells build up between fibrous tissue that connect skin to underlying muscles. Fat pushes the skin outwards, whilst fibrous bands pull the skin inwards.
Types of treatment :
It’s said that Deep Tissue Massage Therapy can work. But only for a short period of time ! and they say “No Pain No Gain” well this treatments for you. The harder the massage the better the results ! But I have another idea. My wife uses Swedish Massage for cellulite, the movement can be slow & gentle or vigorous & bracing. Depending on what you require. But to help with cellulite, you will need the later on the areas with cellulite.
3 Essential oils that will help Cellulite
1 Juniper Berry Essential oil: With it’s Detoxifying effect & helps reduce fluid retention
2 Grapefruit Essential oil : It contains Bromelain that has a high anti-inflammatory enzyme. This should help reduce swelling & fluid retention.
3 Cypress Essential oil : this oil helps increase blood circulation ( also good for varicose veins ).It moves toxins & waste out of the body.
How to use these oils :
You can add 3-4 drops to 1tablespoon of almond or coconut oil. Then rub into the skin daily or use these oils when having either Deep Tissue massage or Swedish massage.
Or add 5-10 drops into bath water. Before bathing use sea salt scrub and rub it into the cellulite areas. sea Salt contains minerals that are good for Detoxifying.
