How To Use Massage Cupping For Cellulite Removal

Cellulite is not just a cosmetic problem, but it can cause serious psychological problems too if you don’t know how to deal with it in the right way. In this article, I am going to give you some pointers on how you can use massage cupping to eliminate cellulite in your body and improve the appearance of your skin by leaps and bounds! So here are the 9 steps that will help you get rid of cellulite easily and without going through complicated surgery or spending thousands of dollars!

Step 1: Cleanse
Because cellulite forms beneath your skin’s surface, a thorough cleansing can only help it to be less noticeable. Begin by taking a shower and then using your favorite body wash. Rinse yourself off with warm water, but avoid using hot water. Hot water is harsh on skin and can cause damage that leads to more pronounced cellulite. After you’ve rinsed off, pat dry your body with a towel instead of rubbing it dry; rubbing is rough on skin and can aggravate any existing damage or break it down further. Instead of drying yourself with a towel, gently glide it across your skin in long strokes from head to toe—this way you’ll achieve better circulation throughout your body without risking damage to those delicate areas just beneath your epidermis.

Step 2: Exfoliate
Exfoliating prior to massage cupping for cellulite removal is beneficial for two reasons. First, it increases your circulation which helps with blood flow throughout your body. Second, it opens up pores and softens your skin; both of which make massage cupping treatments more effective. Mix a natural body scrub into a bucket of warm water and use a soft-bristled loofah sponge to remove dead skin cells before beginning massage cupping treatments.

Step 3: Relax
While some massage cupping is done to help pain, most of it is done to reduce cellulite. If you’re using cupping to help with pain, use your own judgment as to how long you can tolerate each treatment. For cellulite reduction, expect 3-6 treatments a week for two weeks or more. The massaging effect that reduces cellulites takes time and patience; if you rush it will only get worse. It’s also important to drink plenty of water during your treatment period in order to allow your body’s natural detoxification pathways to work properly and wash out toxins through your skin and lymphatic system. You should continue treatment until there is improvement – which could be several weeks depending on how bad your condition was at first.

Step 4: Squeeze, don’t massage
This is important! The goal here isn’t to knead or massage out your cellulite, it’s to break up those fatty pockets so they become smaller and lose some of their knotty-ness. If you knead too much, you could increase inflammation and swelling (and give yourself a great massage at the same time!). Just gently squeeze instead of massaging and everything will be just fine. You want to use your thumbs, not fingers or other tools—you need more surface area with cupping than with massage.

Step 5: Rub in circles
Using circular motions, gently rub over each area of your body, cupping in an upwards direction to try and get rid of as much cellulite as possible. Keep massaging each area for at least a minute – if you can do it longer than that, then so much the better! If your hands start to feel sore or tired, then take a break and rub your hands together to allow them some time to rest and re-energize. Once they feel good again, move on to step 6.

Step 6: Cool down with an ice pack
Ice packs help reduce swelling and inflammation by constricting capillaries, which in turn reduces bruising. Apply an ice pack directly to your cellulite for 10 minutes, followed by 5 minutes of rest, then another 10 minutes of ice. Do not apply ice directly to your skin—wrap it in a towel first. Ice should be stored in a cooler that’s well insulated but not completely airtight; otherwise, it will take much longer to cool down. The coolness from an ice pack may be shocking at first; when I was younger, I remember freezing blueberries so I could use them as makeshift cold packs for sore muscles after tennis practice.

Step 7: Drink more water
You’ve now completed your final massage cupping treatment, and you should be feeling fantastic. But don’t just stop there! Continue to use massage cupping for cellulite removal as an effective addition to your diet and exercise plan – which means you should also keep drinking plenty of water throughout each day. Your skin will thank you for it! After all, healthy, hydrated skin is naturally more supple, glowing and resilient than dehydrated or damaged skin (i.e., skin that isn’t treated well). So enjoy a clean diet plan with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables along with a consistent drink of water every day in order to achieve your dream body.

Step 8: Take your daily supplements. Eat enough veggies and protein. Sleep well.
When you use cupping for cellulite removal, you should also take care of your body in other ways. This includes eating enough vegetables and protein and getting enough sleep. If you are not well rested, your results will suffer as well. Getting enough restful sleep every night will ensure that your body can process toxins better while helping your skin look younger than ever before. It’s even been said that people who don’t get enough sleep often have cellulite because it is harder for their bodies to flush out toxins properly at night. So how many hours do you need to sleep? Most people benefit from about 7-8 hours of quality rest each night if they want to truly optimize their health. And make sure you’re including green leafy veggies in your diet every day if possible!

Step 9) Repeat steps 5-8 two times a week.
The key to maximizing massage cupping is a daily plan that includes two treatment sessions per week, preferably Monday and Friday. Repeat steps 5-8 two times a week. This cycle will continue until you achieve your desired results (1-3 months). Studies have shown that massage cupping is effective for improving circulation as well as reducing fat deposits by as much as 10 percent. With regular treatment, cellulite can be reduced and loose skin tightened. Studies also suggest that adding massage cupping to other cosmetic treatments can enhance outcomes, including body contouring, facial rejuvenation and weight loss. Mixing it up with different forms of therapy allows for more comprehensive treatment plans; even better, these options are affordable and effective enough to fit into any lifestyle.

Final Word
Cupping is a form of alternative medicine practiced by some traditional Chinese medicine practitioners, and many people swear by it for various reasons. Many patients credit cupping with alleviating chronic pain, such as back or neck pain, while others say it’s helped them overcome exhaustion and fatigue. But one thing that’s universally praised about cupping is its effects on cellulite—if you think there’s an easy way to get rid of cellulite, think again. It takes hard work to eliminate those pesky fat deposits in your skin and you can certainly rely on massage cupping to help you achieve that goal.
