Massage For celulite


Can anyone help me with how effective massage is for cellite, how many sessions one needs to give a client and the basic strokes used? I am pretty sure it is effective but not sure what to do.

Hi Richard, Just spotted your question whilst posting my own... I've found hacking, cupping and pounding moves as in Swedish massage beneficial using detoxing/stimulating aromatherapy oils. Follow this with plenty of effleurage to help drain the affecdted area. HOWEVER, without the client following a proper balanced & healthy diet and exercise routine and drinking 2 litres of water a day I'm afraid your efforts will be wasted. Hope this helps... Karen
