If you’re a woman, there’s a 90% chance you have cellulite somewhere on your body. It’s normal, it’s natural, and it’s painless. But for some of us, we want to get rid of those pesky dimples on our thighs and booty.

That’s where anti-cellulite massage comes in. Some studies suggest that massage can target cellulite, and “flatten out” or “break up” fat cells — the same cells responsible for visible cellulite.

And even though studies suggest massage may help with cellulite, others remind us that it’s not a permanent solution ( … but massage has health benefits anyway — so go ahead and splurge if you’re feeling it).

Does anti-cellulite massage help with cellulite?

Like most things, the answer is … it depends. That’s because there’s more than one kind of anti-cellulite massage, and some may be more effective than others.

For example, some anti-cellulite massage techniques don’t even include touch. Some clinics recommend aromatherapy, radiofrequency, and even ultrasound “massage” sessions. These approaches are controversial since no touch is involved — so we need more research to confirm whether these techniques are effective for treating cellulite

Other techniques are a little more “tried and true” — and usually involve lots of pressure, long or sweeping motions, and deep tissue massage. Lymphatic drainage massage, cupping, and even fascia release massage are some examples.


Whether these techniques will work for you depends on your body, how it responds to treatment, and how experienced your technician is.

Tools Used In Anti-Cellulite Massage

Aside from well-trained hands, masseuses and technicians use a wide variety of tools to help reduce cellulite.

Topicals

Lotions, massage oils, and best of all, cellulite creams — topicals can help reduce the appearance of cellulite when used in combination with massage techniques.

Heat

Heat application is a great way to boost any massage. But combine hot stones and heating pads with anti-cellulite massage? That’s one way masseuses enhance their anti-cellulite approach.

Pressure

Massaging sticks, trigger point massage balls, foam rollers, and gua sha tools apply additional pressure and help ease strained muscles. Plus, they may help enhance the effects of your anti-cellulite massage.

Techniques For Anti-Cellulite Massage

In addition to tools, masseuses can use special techniques to help reduce cellulite. In most cases, you can expect something close to a deep tissue massage with plenty of pressure and long, sweeping motions.

Some masseuses also use circular motions. And don’t be surprised if your masseuse also pinches areas on your body where cellulite lives, and gently kneads it around.

All of these techniques are designed to break up and flatten fat cells. Doing so helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, smoothing the skin and making it appear more youthful.

FAQs: What People Ask About Anti-Cellulite Massage

It’s normal to have questions about anti-cellulite massage and how it works. That’s why we’ve put together this list of frequently asked questions — check them out to learn more.

What’s The Protocol For Anti-Cellulite Massage? How Does It Work?

There’s more than one kind of anti-cellulite massage. But in general, they’re similar to deep tissue massages with long, sweeping strokes applied with medium to heavy pressure.Many masseuses also knead the muscles along the thighs and booty area to help break up the fat cells. Some clinics use specialized tools, others use just hands and arms.Lymphatic drainage, cupping, vibration, and even dry brushing techniques may “count” as anti-cellulite massage. It all comes down to where you go, your masseuse, and what works best for your body.

What Areas Of The Body Should I Focus On During Anti-Cellulite Massage?

Cellulite likes to hang out around the thighs and booty — so this is where most people want their massage focused. But arms, breasts, and tummies can develop cellulite, too. We suggest you target your anti-cellulite treatment wherever you have cellulite, as long as it’s safe to do so.

How Often Should I Get An Anti-Cellulite Massage? And How Long Should Each Massage Be?

If you can afford the time and money, many clinics recommend getting an anti-cellulite massage as often as once a week or every few days. Massages can range anywhere from fifteen minutes to an hour, although closer to an hour is more common.

What Should I Do To Maintain Results From Anti-Cellulite Massage?

Many massage clinics recommend you maintain results with an ongoing anti-cellulite massage routine. In other words, the best way to maintain the results from your massage is with another massage. However, some people supplement with anti-cellulite creams, masks, and exfoliants to optimize and maintain results.
