How Does Deep Tissue Massage Break Up Cellulite?

Learn how deep tissue massage can break up cellulite from celebrity massage therapist Meagan Holub in this Howcast video.


People often ask me, if deep tissue massage can decrease or entirely get rid of cellulite. We all wish that we had less cellulite. There is some debate about this. What I can tell you is that deep tissue massage, there is no massage that can completely get rid of cellulite. There is no massage that can take the cellulite out of your body.

But there is a particular type of deep tissue massage, referred to as cellulite massage, that when you receive it often enough and it is quite aggressive, you can apply it with honey and different types of things, it actually reduces the appearance of cellulite, by smoothing out the skin and pulling out the water or the edema.

It smooths it all over, and so you actually have quite a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. That's the best answer I can give you for that one. Many people believe that deep tissue massage can reduce the appearance of cellulite. I think that's where that misconception comes from.
