Anti Cellulite Massage part 3
Benefit criterion vs. risk.
Contraindications during the therapy connected with cellulite. Most often, apart from a massage, we have to do with a different aim, ex. weight loss support and shaping silhouette. Obviously, we use aids in such a way that they do not create risk and side effects. Remember! Massage used for cosmetic aims, as every therapy, has also contraindications, the same as classic and medicinal massage.
One of the basic contraindications is prohibition of massage in places where varicose veins occur, and if they occur only to a small extent, the massage should include places above them, omitting places where they occur. Also, thermal aids of high temperature cannot be used. Massaging people who have tendencies for burst blood vessels is performed gently but slightly longer and without warming up. In cosmetics, the most frequent method is a modified classic massage or lymphatic drain. However, I want to tell you a few words about another method – called dynamic anti cellulite massage.

Then, at first, you work out on lower parts of the back, then legs with taking into consideration thighs and buttocks in particular, then, an anterior part of a thigh, then, abdominal integuments and shoulders.

However, next massage sessions cause very positive reactions.
