Making changes to your diet by boosting your intake of fresh fruit and vegetables, protein, carbohydrates such as whole grains or legumes to reduce your body fat levels will help improve the appearance of cellulite and at the same time improve shape of the body. In addition to this we’ll explore several manual massage treatments which are used to treat cellulite.

Massage Treatments for Cellulite Reduction

Manual Massage

Swedish Massage Therapy is used to focus on the physical healing of the body. Considered the most popular form of Western Massage Therapy, Swedish Massage is the root of many other types of massage including Deep Tissue Massage, Sports Massage, Medical Massage and Rolfing.

Your massage therapist will incorporate a variety of massage techniques such as Effleurage, Petrissage, Friction and Tapotement throughout the treatment. Although a manual massage treatment will not specifically target cellulite, your body will be relaxed, your circulation will improve and the range of motion or movement of your muscles and joints will increase.


An aromatherapy massage is not only relaxing but when aromatic essential oils are incorporated into the massage it is believed to have physical and psychological benefits to awaken the senses and lead to healing. Essential oils are extracted from certain plants that are wild and cultivated. When used in certain blended combinations each oil has a particular clinical benefit, one of which is in the treatment of cellulite.

Mechanical Treatments

The advancements in non-surgical electrical body treatments for weight loss and body contouring means there are more choices available to us as the consumer. Cryolipolysis, radiofrequency and ultrasound are treatments used to break down fat, particularly on the abdomen, hips, thighs and buttocks and at the same time will firm and tone skin to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Body Galvanism

Galvanic iontophoresis is used to allow the infusion of anti-cellulite substances into the skin on a galvanic charge. The electrodes produce polar and interpolar effects which enables electrically-charged cellulite products to be infused into the skin. The method also stimulates sluggish circulation, speeds up the interchange of tissue fluids in the area where cellulite has formed.

The treatment also has a diuretic effect on the body allowing any build-up of fluid to be removed naturally.

The treatments we have outlined above are specifically performed in spas, retreats, medi clinics and beauty salons. For the best outcome you should expect to book a series of treatments. If you combine your treatments with a good home care routine and a full program of diet and exercise you will maintain your improved condition well after your series of treatments have finished.

A good home care routine includes; drinking plenty of still water (add a slice of lemon to help rid the body of toxins), use a body brush every day before showering until your skin feels warm and glowing and apply a good anti-cellulite cream morning and night after showering.

A body cream reported to be effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite is Dermology Cellulite Cream.
