Cellulite massage is a body shaping technique that is used to reduce cellulite, also known as orange peel syndrome. Its causes are poor diets, lack of activity and accumulated excreta as a result of smoking. The body is unable to process toxins, therefore it stores them in the fat tissues and slows down blood flow and lymphatic circulation. The skin’s surface becomes dimpled because of the formation of fat cells in the connective tissues. Cellulite mostly appears on the abdomen, hips and bottom area, and thighs. Massage improves blood flow and lymphatic circulation and the oxygen supply for organs. It helps lymph empty into the blood flow through the lymph nodes.

It is advised to have regular treatments repeated at least 10 times, 2-3 times per week.
