What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the herniation of internal fat which is able to protrude through weak connective tissue which manifests at the surface of the skin appearing as dimples and nodules. Cellulite is much more common in females, affecting 80%-90% of post adolescent women.
Cellulite is not just an accumulation of fat cells, it’s a combination of wastes, toxins and fat that had accumulated below the skin due to poor circulation especially of the Lymphatic system which runs just below the surface area of the skin. The good news is that by stimulating the circulation and removing excess wastes from the Lymph fluid the appearance of cellulite can be dramatically improved within a couple of weeks resulting in a stronger immune system.
The Lymph fluid flows in one direction under the surface of the skin from the hands and feet through the main filters (lymph nodes) upward to the base of the neck where the subclavian veins release it back into circulation as plasma in the blood.
It is estimated that about 2-3 liters of Lymph fluid move through the Lymphatic system everyday and there are about 600-700 Lymph nodes that work by releasing Lymphocytes to destroy harmful toxins and to purify and filter the Lymph fluid. The Lymph nodes may be as small as a pin, others as large as an olive and are primarily located in the neck, under the armpits, in the abdomen and around the hips and upper portion of the legs. The Lymph fluid is a crucial part of our immune system and it is essential that is able to do its job as efficiently as possible for us to maintain good health and vitality.
By stimulating our Lymphatic system and circulation and preventing a buildup of wastes and toxins, we can actually reduce the bumpy look of cellulite that often appears under the surface of the skin.
Strengthening the weak connective tissue is how to get rid of cellulite. This can be achieved by raising the heart rate to increase blood flow to the affected areas.
A non-strenuous way to increase the heart rate and get the blood pumping is by regular Vibrosaun treatments consisting of a light vibration massage combined with heat. Vibrosaun treatments will also aid in increasing circulation which is another remedy to rid cellulite forever.
