massage tip

First of all, before any type of massage, it is necessary to take some measures:

  1. Massage should not be done after a heavy meal. It is best to delay your massage if you feel tired to avoid any discomfort. 
  2. Scars and varicose veins should not be massaged.

During a cellulite massage, a good temperature and moisturized skin contribute to a better penetration of the products used.

I recommend you to take a hot shower, before the massage, to promote the beneficial effects.

In the same way, exfoliation of the skin before using the anti-cellulite cream enhances absorption for a more effective result.

In addition, I recommend you to drink plenty of water after a massage session. And before you return to your daily activities, you can rest a little by drinking a hot herbal tea.

Similarly, cold packs help to relieve congestion, while warm packs help to soften tissues. In the case of cancer massage therapy, the alternation of hot (about 3 min) and cold (about 1 min) pads promotes blood circulation.
