Cellulite is caused by adipose cells pushing up against the skin between tight fascial* strands, leaving a "cottage cheese" appearance of the skin. Cellulite massage helps reduce the appearance of cellulite by flushing toxins, softening the fascia, tightening and toning the skin. Possible, positive side effects are wight loss and dimensional sliming. This style of massage does take some time to get results, just stick with it. For best results it takes two sessions a week over six weeks.
*Fascia is what connects the skin to muscle, muscle other muscles and muscles to bone. It is what connects everything to everything else in the body.
