Our intensive cellulite massage will help to smooth the orange peel effect often found on the backs of thighs, buttocks, hips and stomach – leaving you with softer, smoother, firmer skin. Your massage therapist will stimulate blood flow to the affected areas, improving circulation and flushing out unwanted fluid. Cellulite is formed when fat deposits collect beneath the skin, protruding in places and creating a dimpled effect. Exercise and diet alone won’t address specific areas whereas massage can directly target cellulite structure – while draining lymph nodes and minimising water retention. Results will be visible after the first massage but regular treatment will increase and prolong the improving effects.
Cellulite – What To Do?
Cellulite affects us all. Almost. It’s thought that up to ninety percent of women experience cellulite – mostly around the thighs, buttocks, hips and stomach but other areas such as the lower legs and arms are common too. Cellulite occurs when the fat deposits beneath the skin herniate, or push through, the connective tissue above- creating an uneven and dimpled effect on the skin. The occurrence is higher in women than men due to a higher fat to muscle ratio, and because this connective tissue is distributed differently – in men it tends to contain the fat more effectively in acriss-cross design. Other factors include age and hormones (depleting oestrogen levels are through to worsen cellulite formation), genetics – and lifestyle. Low circulation – due to ageing, inactivity or smoking – is key to the formation and intensity of cellulite. Quitting smoking, staying active and not standing or sitting still for very long periods of time are all good ways to minimise its development, as is ahigh-fibre / low-fat diet with regular exercise. But even the very leanest (and teenagers) are subject to cellulite – so what to do?
A balanced combination of healthy lifestyle adjustments and clinical therapy is thought to be the most effective approach – the first to improve underlying system causes and the second to stimulate circulation and manually encourage a smoother contour.
Cellulite Massage and Viora Radio Frequency Treatment are two clinical approaches we offer at Santi – both address cellulite directly and both are most effective on an ongoing basis. But which is right for you? The Santi Cellulite Massage is a highly effective and intensive treatment which quite literally ‘smooths out’ the ‘orange peel’ effect. By stimulating blood flow to the cellulite affected areas your massage therapist can help to reinvigorate connective tissue as well as flush out excess fluid. The lumpy appearance of cellulite can actually be eased by lymphatic drainage and associated water retention – it’s part manual therapy, part detox.
Cellulite Massage directly targets cellulite structure and can, if regularly administered, contribute to a healthy weight loss and toning programme. Visible results are noticeable after the first massage, but repeated treatments will, of course, increase and prolong the effects. As with cellulite targeted massage, Radio Frequency Treatment gets the best results when combined with regular exercise. While exercise is not a cure-all for cellulite, increased muscle strength can result in a smoother skin appearance. Viora Skin Tightening enhances this process with a fast, non-invasive and pain-free therapy. With multi radio frequency channels and a patented CORE technology, Viora Skin Tightening does just that – it approaches cellulite from the outside and tightens the skin in any affected area. Viora in combination with a committed diet and exercise regimen is a powerful and quickly visible antidote to a difficult aesthetic issue. Cellulite is tricky and needs to be approached from multiples angles. In addition to these treatments, topical applications like targeted dry oils and even collagen based dietary supplements can aid in combatting cellulite.
Come in to Santi and we’ll help you decide on the right combined approach to address your specific concerns.
How much does cellulite massage cost?
The cost of specialist massages like cellulite is £90 for one hour at Santi. Our therapists are specifically trained in technical massages to ensure the best experience.
How often should I get cellulite massage?
The frequency of cellulite massage can depend on individual factors such as the severity of the cellulite, overall health, and lifestyle. However, in general, it is recommended to have cellulite massage once or twice a week for several weeks to achieve optimal results.
After the initial treatment period, maintenance cellulite massage sessions can be scheduled every 4-6 weeks or as needed to maintain the results. It is important to keep in mind that cellulite massage is not a permanent solution, and lifestyle changes such as maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise can help to prevent the re-occurrence of cellulite.
Cellulite massage is a specialized massage technique designed to improve the appearance of cellulite. Cellulite is the term used to describe the dimpled or lumpy appearance of skin, most commonly on the thighs, buttocks, and hips. It occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin.
Cellulite massage involves deep tissue massage, lymphatic drainage, and myofascial release techniques to help break up the fat deposits and smooth out the skin. The massage therapist uses firm pressure and long strokes to manipulate the skin and underlying tissues. This helps to increase circulation, reduce fluid retention, and improve the overall appearance of the skin.
Cellulite massage can be done with the hands, using special massage tools, or with a combination of both. It is often used in conjunction with other cellulite treatments such as diet and exercise, and it may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results. It is important to note that cellulite massage is not a permanent solution, and maintenance sessions may be required to maintain the results.
10 Benefits of Cellulite Massage and Why You Should Try It
Are you tired of trying various methods to get rid of cellulite without seeing any significant results? Look no further than cellulite massage! Cellulite massage is a specialized massage technique that can help reduce the appearance of cellulite and provide a range of other benefits. Here are ten benefits of cellulite massage and why you should try it:
Cellulite massage involves deep tissue massage techniques that can improve blood flow and circulation. This increased circulation can help to deliver essential nutrients and oxygen to the affected area, improving overall skin health.
Reduced fluid retention:
Cellulite massage can help to reduce fluid retention, which is a common cause of cellulite. By stimulating the lymphatic system, massage can help to remove excess fluid and toxins from the body.
Increased collagen production:
Massage can help to increase collagen production, which is essential for maintaining healthy and youthful-looking skin. Collagen is responsible for maintaining the skin’s elasticity and firmness, which can help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Improved skin texture:
Cellulite massage can help to improve the texture of the skin by smoothing out lumps and bumps. The deep tissue massage can break up the fat deposits that contribute to cellulite, resulting in smoother and more even-looking skin.
Enhanced muscle tone:
Massage can also help to enhance muscle tone in the affected area. This can help to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve overall body shape.
Cellulite massage can be a relaxing and stress-relieving experience. Massage has been shown to reduce stress levels and promote relaxation, which can have a positive impact on overall health and wellbeing.
Pain relief: Massage can also provide pain relief for those who suffer from tight or sore muscles. This can be especially beneficial for those who carry a lot of tension in their hips, thighs, and buttocks, which are common areas for cellulite to appear.
Boosted immune system: By stimulating the lymphatic system, cellulite massage can help to boost the immune system. This can result in improved overall health and wellbeing.
Detoxification: Massage can help to stimulate the body’s natural detoxification process, which can help to remove harmful toxins and waste products from the body.
Improved self-esteem: Finally, cellulite massage can help to improve self-esteem and body confidence. By reducing the appearance of cellulite, massage can help people feel more comfortable and confident in their own skin.
Cellulite massage is an effective and natural way to reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve overall skin health. With so many benefits, there’s no reason not to try it!
Exploring Cupping for Cellulite
Cellulite is a common problem that affects many people, particularly women. It’s the dimpled appearance of the skin caused by underlying fat deposits. Massage therapy, including cupping, is one of the methods that have been suggested to help reduce the appearance of cellulite. At Santi Chelsea, we will explore cellulite massage using cupping as a technique and its potential benefits for reducing the appearance of cellulite.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is a condition where the skin has a dimpled or lumpy appearance, usually on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen. It’s caused by underlying fat deposits that push against the connective tissue, causing the skin to pucker or dimple. Cellulite is more common in women than men because women tend to carry more fat in these areas, and the connective tissue in women’s skin is thinner than in men’s.
What is cupping?
Cupping is a traditional Chinese therapy that involves placing cups on the skin to create a suction effect. The cups can be made of various materials, including glass, bamboo, or silicone. Cupping is often used for pain relief, relaxation, and to improve blood flow.
How does cupping work for cellulite?
Cupping is thought to work for cellulite by improving blood flow and lymphatic drainage. When the cups are placed on the skin, they create a suction effect that pulls the skin upward. This suction can help to break up the underlying fat deposits, which can reduce the appearance of cellulite. The increased blood flow and lymphatic drainage can also help to remove toxins from the body, which can contribute to the development of cellulite.
Cupping can also help to stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that gives the skin its elasticity and firmness. As we age, our collagen production decreases, which can contribute to the development of cellulite. By stimulating collagen production, cupping can help to improve the appearance of the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
What are the benefits of cellulite massage using cupping?
There are several potential benefits of cellulite massage using cupping:
Reduced appearance of cellulite: The suction effect of cupping can help to break up the underlying fat deposits, which can reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Improved blood flow and lymphatic drainage: Cupping can improve blood flow and lymphatic drainage, which can help to remove toxins from the body and reduce inflammation.
Increased collagen production: Cupping can stimulate collagen production, which can improve the appearance of the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Relaxation: Cupping can be a relaxing therapy that can help to reduce stress and tension.
Pain relief: Cupping can be used to relieve pain in the affected areas.
How is cellulite massage using cupping performed?
Cellulite massage using cupping is typically performed by our therapist trained in cupping. She will use a cupping set, which typically includes several cups of varying sizes. The cups are placed on the skin and a suction effect is created by either heating the cup or using a handheld pump.
The cups are then moved around the affected areas using a gliding or circular motion. The therapist may also use other massage techniques, such as deep tissue massage or lymphatic drainage massage, to further enhance the effects of cupping.
