Cellulite is a problem that affects most women. Hormones, genetics and diet all play a role in the appearance of cellulite. Although it affects both men and women, women are far more likely to have visible cellulite, regardless of their age, ethnic origin or weight.
An unhealthy diet accelerates the degeneration of body cells, aggravating the appearance of cellulite. When we eat processed food, certain toxins are released, which over time reduces skin elasticity and slows down circulation. This process is called oxidation and cellulite is one of its results.
The typical orange peel appearance of cellulite is due to clusters of cells of the hypodermis (the inner surface of the skin) hardening and adhering to the underneath layer called fascia (the membrane covering and supporting all of our organs). In addition, cellulite is exacerbated by fat accumulation and poor circulation particularly in areas of the body such as the belly, hips, buttocks and thighs.
The efficiency of the Palper Rouler technique lies in its precise, fully manual and personalized approach, taking into account each person’s specific needs, morphology, lifestyle and objectives. The massage consists of several maneuvers with the best known being to form a fold with the fingers, rolling it to break adhesions between adipose cells underneath the skin and the skin itself, enabling their elimination.
Accompanied by a lymphatic massage, the Palper Rouler massage decongests the engorged zones, softens the tissues, frees the fascia and activates both the blood and lymphatic circulation, helping to eliminate fat deposits, diminish water retention, and flush out toxins.
