Types of anti cellulite massages that you can do at home
Who doesn't enjoy a relaxing massage? I'm pretty sure that all of us do. But we're not going to talk about that now, we're going to talk about anti cellulite massages that aren't all that soothing. Yes, anti cellulite massages aren't supposed to hurt extremely bad or leave marks, but they're still pretty harsh.
Massage can aid the circulatory and lymphatic systems. Massaging cellulite is also beneficial for targeting those difficult areas that can’t always be targeted through exercise, such as the inner knee and upper thigh. Of course, anti cellulite massage techniques should be applied in addition to anti cellulite exercises and an anti cellulite diet with foods that burn fat and cellulite.
Different types of anti cellulite massages you can do at home?
The following pieces of advice are some basic guide lines that you should respect in order to correctly massage you cellulite affected skin.
Preparing the anti cellulite massage: Apply oil, starting from feet or knees and moving upwards, to help encourage the increased flow of blood through the peripheral veins and capillaries of your circulatory system.
Knuckle massage: Use your fists to crush into those ugly cellulite bulges. By pressing hard enough to break up the fat deposits, your body's own metabolism will be able to better deal with them naturally.
Kneading massage: You can use finger kneading for smaller areas (inner knee, upper arms or calves) and hand kneading on larger areas (hips, thighs and stomach) to bring the blood closer to the surface. This type of anti cellulite massage is sort of like kneading bread dough. You're supposed to squeeze and lift the skin and this hopefully eliminates waste deposits.
"S" massage: This means grasping a large portion of the problem area in each hand, making sure your thumbs are at right angles. Twist the flesh in opposite directions as if to form the letter "S" with the folds.
Wringing massage: Relax your muscles. Grasp portions of flesh with both hands and twist as if wringing out a wet towel. Use this massage on thighs and fleshy hip areas.
How to end an anti cellulite massage: Finish your daily anti cellulite massage with heavy stroking with deep pressure (just as mentioned in step 1) - from the extremities upwards. This is to encourage the upward flow of freed deposits to their ultimate elimination by metabolic action of lymphatic drainage and normal blood flow.
