If you are looking for an ally to take care of your body and treat cellulite, but you have doubts about whether it is really effective, we explain in detail what the anti-cellulite massage technique consists of.
A good anti-cellulite massager can help you effectively treat cellulite. We are going to see what a massager must have to be effective and how the massage must be performed so that it works and results are noticed.
Does massage work to eliminate cellulite?
An anti-cellulite massage can improve the appearance of "orange peel skin" by acting on these aspects:
- Drain fluid retention, fat and accumulated toxins.
- Help a better distribution of adipocytes (fat cells)
- Improve circulation, both lymphatic and blood
- Activate the elasticity of connective tissue.
This is because cellulite is a complex process, which occurs deep under the skin, and acts on both retention, circulation and fat.
Cellulite affects 90% of women and is not linked to being overweight. You can be thin and be an athlete, and still suffer from it.
For this reason, in addition to the massage, it is important to work on other issues that can cause cellulite (diet, exercise...), but above all, CONSISTENCE is key when treating cellulite in order for it to no longer be an issue.
A good manual massage can be effective, but it must be applied constantly by a qualified professional, and it is very difficult to do it properly by yourself, which is why professional and home-use devices have emerged to help us.
Home use devices have the great advantage that they allow constant application by oneself, which is really key to achieving results; and can be combined with other professional treatments.
There are several electric and manual massage devices on the market that promise to reduce or eliminate cellulite, but most are NOT effective, since they do not have the necessary characteristics to treat this problem effectively, either due to their concept, design or strength.
Manual massagers are usually made of wood, plastic sometimes with rubber tips, bristle brushes, which can help take care of the skin with cellulite with a lot of effort and perseverance, but they will hardly improve cellulite.
On the other hand, electric massagers are devices designed to try to act on fat or stimulate lymphatic drainage. Theoretically, the motor should help achieve better results with less effort than any manual system.
What types of cellulite massagers are there?
Manual massagers to treat cellulite
As we have mentioned before, there are cellulite massagers that are not electric, and are applied by hand.
The ones that have become most fashionable lately are those made of wood to apply the wood therapy technique. Others are made of plastic, or are brushes with stiff bristles.
Maderotherapy requires a significant effort to work, so it must be applied by a therapist to work.
However, one of the most effective manual systems to improve the appearance of "orange peel" skin is dry brushing with a natural bristle brush that vigorously dry brushes the skin.
Exfoliation with the brush is essential in any anti-cellulite treatment, eliminating dead cells while stimulating circulation. Brushing should be done with very energetic movements and in an upward direction (in the direction of blood circulation)
If you want to achieve an energetic and professional brushing in just 5-10 minutes and without effort, you can use an electric device to help you, such as the one that applies Glo910 with its head of natural bristles (Glo Body Brush).
