How the Acupressure Mat can reduce your cellulite


Learn the essential keys to eliminating Cellulite and Fat Burning with Acupressure Mat!


Cellulite occurs because a large number of women's fat cells are located in pockets within the connective tissue of the skin. Over time, a build up of fluids and fat, along with a reduction in blood supply, can cause the pockets to bulge and press against the connective tissues, creating the external 'orange peel' effect on the skin.


How to use the Acupressure Mat


Your applicator should be placed on a bed or any other flat surface, preferably a soft surface!


You should lie on the applicator, positioning fat and/or cellulite problem zones (such as hips, thighs and buttocks and back) on the applicator.


Allow your own body weight to provide the pressure needed for 40-90 minutes. The applicator performs a deep tissue massage which breaks down fat deposits under the skin and improves blood flow and cellular function.


Cellulite

Acupressure Mat

Cellulite is the name given to the lumpy, irregular fat deposits often found around the hips, buttocks and upper leg areas. It is sometimes described as 'orange peel skin' because of the dimpled appearance of the affected areas.


Cellulite appears in 90% of post-adolescent women, even those who put a lot of effort into keeping their bodies slim and well toned, but is rarely seen in men.


Along with a good diet and exercise, which can help in the early stages of cellulite formation, there are many different treatments that have been claimed to reduce the appearance of cellulite.


Creams and gels form the bulk of cellulite treatments that are marketed. Many of these contain ingredients that have been shown to stimulate metabolism of fat in laboratory experiments, but none have been clinically proven to have a significant or long lasting effect in studies on patients.


Body wrapping involves a process of enveloping parts of the body with linens permeated with a variety of substances such as herbal extracts, algae, seaweed, and mud. The skin is brushed or massaged evenly with any one of these products and then covered in linens. The body shaping effect is the result of the combined action of perspiration and compression, which leads to a reduction of body dimensions. This effect is mainly due to the loss of fluids and is only temporary. These wraps are generally beneficial for relaxation, as well as softening the skin, but they do not reduce cellulite.


Massage increases circulation and lymphatic drainage, reduces muscular spasms and breaks down adhesions. Lymphatic drainage is a specific massage, which removes accumulated fluid but has little effect on cellulite. The main problems with manual massage are the different techniques and levels of pressure employed by therapists, which are virtually impossible to standardise.

My back becomes painful after hard housework or gardening or just exercising. I just lie on my Acupressure Mat and the aches normally completely disappear in a few minutes leaving me a nice feeling of warmth and relaxation. It is an amazing thing this mat, I would highly recommend it to everyone who's got a severe pain and doesn't know what to do. I like that it is a completely natural treatment without drugs.
