What causes dimples (cellulite) in our skin?
Right beneath our skin running from head to toe is a connective tissue called Fascia pronounced (fah-sha).
Ideally, your fascia is healthy and therefore malleable enough to slide, glide, twist, and bend your body. But as we become older and more sedentary, our fascia begins to become sticky and tight, pulling the skin down and forcing adipose tissue up (causing dents and dimples commonly known as cellulite.)
Cupping and Gua Sha are like magic for breaking up tight pinned down fascia. They stretch and relax the hardened connective tissue beneath the skin promoting healthy circulation of nutrient-rich blood, rejuvenating the skin and underlying tissues, increasing elasticity and reducing the dimpled appearance of cellulite.
Cellulite Cupping is much more intense than regular cupping and may leave you with bruises post treatment. It can take up to 6-10 treatments depending on the severity of your case, therefore I recommend this be done in a series weekly or bi-weekly.
Is it worth it? YES! Everything I offer patients I always test on myself first.
Is it painful? Slightly, the first few times as we work on breaking up tight mucles and fascia that have been pinned down for years.
I’ve also noticed my mobility has increased since starting these treatments. Straighter fascia lines mean deeper stretches
End results? Smoother skin, less, pain, better mobility.
