What is cellulite?
- Cellulite is a term used for the dermal lumpy appearance caused by lobules of underlying fat tissue and inflexible fibrous connective tissue. Cellulite can affect any weight or size, and these deposits usually occur on the abdomen, thighs and hips of women. Practically all post pubescent females display some degree of cellulite.
- Though diet and exercise can diminish cellulite, special attention is needed on hormonal factors since cellulite develops primarily during periods of hormonal change, such as puberty, pregnancy, menopause, premenstrual syndrome , and years of ingesting birth control pills.
Cellulite and Toxins
When circulation is working well and fresh nutrients are delivered to the skin and the lymph is taking away wastes and toxins. things look good!
When things get clogged up and blood circulation decreases, this starves and weakens the surrounding tissue and causes fluid to be retained.
Stagnant lymph from years of toxic build up from the environment, processed foods and chemical additives in our food affects our bodies.
Our liver, kidneys, lymph system and sweat glands can't always keep up with the toxins coming in. This overload of toxins often gets deposited in and around our fat cells, including those layers just beneath the skin. This causes hardening of what was once very elastic septa. This bears down on the fat cells below. These fat cells below 'poke through' the hardened septa, causing the cottage cheese effect that we don't want!
How Cupping works to reduce cellulite
Appropriate cups are used to provide suction on the skin. Reverse pressure causes the cellulite to break up. Blood circulation is stimulated, and the fat and toxins that are released are moved to the lymph drainage network. Cupping therapy also promotes a more efficient drainage of the lymph nodes, these toxins are quickly eliminated from the body. Cupping is also known to ease the cords connecting the skin and muscle. In this way, fluid build-up is reduced and the skin develops a more cellulite-free healthy appearance.
