HOW TO GET RID OF CELLULITE USING PRANAMAT ECO
CELLULITE TREATMENTS "DON'T WORK"
If you've been around long enough, you'll probably have seen cellulite cream, dry brushing, grape seed extract, laser treatment, acoustic wave therapy and every other cellulite treatment option ever dreamt up advertised to you at some point. By our 30s, most of us have given up trying to reduce cellulite, and accepted that fat cells beneath our dimpled skin are here to stay. We've all seen carefully worded claims like "may help reduce the appearance of cellulite". There are no instant and permanent cellulite treatments. But, we can achieve a noticeable reduction in "lumpy skin" by working on blood flow and the connective tissue beneath.
HEALTHY WEIGHT + HEALTHY DIET = NO ORANGE PEEL
Let's dispel some common ideas about cellulite. Healthy women and men of any age have cellulite. It's not about weight gain either; supermodels get it too. We might think we develop cellulite because loose skin loses elasticity as we age... also not true; most of us had significant cellulite as babies. It's not caused by excess fat cells; we can't just lose weight and make cellulite disappear! Stop calculating your body fat percentage. To get rid of cellulite, we need to look beyond healthy diet and weight loss.
HOW CELLULITE FORMS: WHAT IS IT?
We've all seen it - the dimpled appearance of the skin structure. The cellulite prone areas tend to be our thighs, butts and stomachs. And sadly, we're taught that the appearance of cellulite is undesirable, despite it being utterly normal! So, what is cellulite? We all know that our bodies have bones, muscles, nerves, veins and skin - but what holds all this together? The entire body is strung together with a vast network of connective tissue bands called fascia - from the tips of the toes to the forehead.
Fascia has amazing properties, but for simplicity let's think of it as a netting (like on a bag of oranges) that stretches over underlying muscle and fat cells under the skin. When the netting becomes tight or inflexible, the flesh underneath bulges between the fibrous bands, giving the skin a lumpy appearance to the skin's surface, and cellulite appears. If we're carrying a lot of excess body fat, the uneven surface is exaggerated, but it's not the underlying cause.
IF YOU DON'T WANT TO REDUCE CELLULITE
You are beautiful just the way you are. Cellulite is natural and normal and beautiful. There is no medical reason to "treat cellulite". But our research shows that the same type of massage we use to target cellulite has significant benefits for health; especially in the massage of the fascia, influencing experience pain and the nervous system. So, love your body, but read on to discover the mind-blowing connection between connective tissue and whole-body wellness.
FASCIA: JUST CONNECTIVE BANDS BENEATH THE SKIN?
When the fascia is healthy, it is stretchy, supple, smooth and moist. It is the connective tissue beneath our skin that connects our bones and skin and fat and nerves. But fascia is more than just an inert set of "connective bands". It's an organ - the biggest organ in the body. It is intimately connected to the nervous system, mental health and our relationship with pain. Only in recent years have we started to fully appreciate the role of fascia - not just in cellulite development - but also in overall health. You may have heard of Ashley Black - an amazing women and mother who found herself living with extreme chronic pain. She self-educated about fascial massage and managed to free herself from pain - and in the process realised it was the best way to get rid of cellulite.
HOW DOES PRANAMAT ECO® MASSAGE RESTORE THE FASCIA?
We can treat cellulite by treating the connective tissue bands that cause it. The fascia can become hardened, rigid and "sticky" - they get stuck instead of gliding over the tissue beneath. This doesn’t just create cellulite but also places strain on the nervous system, leading to increased feelings of stress and pain. By using Pranamat ECO® Massage on a daily basis, we can target cellulite treatments to areas we see the appearance of cellulite. We can increase blood flow to the fascia, providing it with nourishment and oxygen. We can gently stretch and ease the tough bands of the fascia when needed. And we can target multiple pressure points simultaneously to release the fascia. This is how to get rid of cellulite using regular Pranamat ECO® Massage. But more importantly, restore your overall feeling of health and happiness.
