For weight loss
And now consider the vacuum massage, which is used for weight loss.
The founder of vacuum massage for the abdomen was Tibet. And already cosmetologists and modern doctors began to use massage to reduce weight and get rid of excess fat.
When cups for vacuum massage are used, pressure drops are created, as a result of which blood actively flows to acupuncture points, that is, to biologically active points, regeneration processes improve, and salts and toxins are naturally removed from the body. Which actually contributes to weight loss.
It is not difficult to do massage with vacuum jars, but of course you need willpower. Before you start, you need to warm up and rub your face too, you can use a hot compress or by hard massage. Apply massage oil or cream to the surface if you do not want to walk with bruises. You also need to know how sensitive your skin is, the more sensitive the skin, the less effort and the shorter the duration of the procedure.
You can start massaging the abdomen only after consulting a doctor and having thoroughly studied this procedure so as not to harm yourself. Only a doctor can tell if you can do it or if it is contraindicated for you. Doctors do not recommend doing vacuum massage on the inner side of the thigh, although of course, in your opinion, this particular place needs massage. It is on the inner side of the thigh that there are lymph nodes that can be harmed and then the consequences can be unpredictable and very unfavorable.
It seems that we have decided, we will do a vacuum massage, which means we will proceed to the procedure itself. We take a jar and gently squeeze it, the more you squeeze it, the more skin volume you can massage. You need to attach it to the skin of the abdomen and slowly unclench, do not forget to monitor how the skin is absorbed. Doctors recommend no more than 1.5 cm of skin elevation.
You need to start the massage of the abdomen smoothly clockwise, after a pause, the same movements only counterclockwise. You need to rotate the vacuum jars carefully so that bruises do not form.
This type of massage is also effective for cellulite, but there are certain rules here. If you want to do massage for cellulite, then you need to know that doing it from time to time will not achieve anything. Only regular vacuum massage will tighten the skin, relieve you of the “orange peel” and restore elasticity, and the muscles will be in good shape.
