Massaging the War on Cellulite

North Carolina Massage SchoolWomen have been fighting the war against cellulite for as long as we can remember. It has unfortunately been dubbed as one of those unattractive signs of aging that will just never have a cure. Sort of like baldness on men. It is true that not even a famous Hollywood surgeon has developed an unbearable, expensive cure that only the superrich can afford. However it is not true that there is no way to reduce the appearance of the ugly little dents.

Recent discoveries that massages can reduce cellulite have brought hope to millions of women who are too embarrassed to wear shorts or short skirts that reveal dimply thighs. Not just any massage will do the trick. There is a certain type of massaging that can be done by professional that will target poor lymph circulation and use manual skin kneading and in effect, reduce the appearance of cellulite.

People often describe cellulite as a layer of fat that pushes against the connective tissue underneath the skin. While this is true, it is common to see people who are completely healthy and fit suffer from cellulite as well. A lot of that has to do with genes, circulation and the basic concept that “it’s part of life.” It can begin appearing at any age and even on men although they are generally covered in body hair that disguises the lumpy skin.

No matter how old you are or what shape your body is, you will benefit from a full body massage that will improve your circulation and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Talk to your massage therapist about wanting a massage that will help with your cellulite. Not only will your legs, stomach and buttocks look younger and better but it is a deep penetrating rub that relaxes the body and feels great.

It’s important to go into a cellulite massage appointment knowing that it is a healing process and you will not jump up from the table and run to a mirror to see fantastic results. It takes time before you will begin to notice your new healthy look.
