Massage therapy is proven to help improve the appearance of cellulite by eliminating the extra fluid from the body, removing fat cells, increasing circulation, and swelling the skin. Although massage therapy may enhance appearance, its effectiveness usually doesn’t last for a long time, and in several situations retake treatments are required.

Devices for Cellulite Massage Therapy

In the market, there are different massage devices that promise to cure cellulite, but not all of these devices work well. Most people make use of hard, tube-shaped foam rollers with the hopes of breaking and eliminating fats. However, there’s no considerable proof that devices such as dry brushing working your dry skin with a soft brush can effectively get rid of your cellulite, especially for good.

Common Causes of Cellulite

Cellulite is considered to occur once the fibrous bands of connective tissue, which holds the skin to muscles strip, enable fat cells to move up into the skin layer. All humans have fat cells. Although everyone is prone to cellulite, some are more susceptible to it than others. Some of the common causes that increase the risks for cellulite may include:


Our skin gets less elastic and connective tissue bands normally weaken as we age. 


Hormones such as estrogen play a significant role in the buildup of cellulite and fat cells. It’s one other reason for most women to form more cellulite than men. 


Women naturally have vertical bands of connective tissue that enable the fat cells to expand toward the exterior part of the skin. While, men contain connective tissues, which position in a crisscross pattern and these intersecting bands are ideal for containing the fat cells.


Some lifestyle patterns such as excessive drinking of alcohol and lack of physical exercise can affect slow down circulation, and develop inflammation, and the way fat cells are built up and spread in the body.


Based on several studies, a diet high in fats, salt, and high-preservative can lead to metabolic issues that can build up cellulite.


Genes can determine the circulation of fat cells, the elasticity of the skin, and other determining factors that affect cellulite.

It’s important to remember that cellulite is common to humans, especially in women. When you have cellulite, it doesn’t mean one is sick, overweight, or in any way not normal. While massage will provide some, if any, lasting effect on your cellulite, it can also offer other health advantages such as deep tissue massage therapy and manual physical therapy. It can help you feel calm, relieve tightness in your muscles, and reduce body pain. Cellulite therapy can help you feel better to look better. Contact Massage Rx Los Angeles today to get started.
