The Natural Cellulite Solution
Cellulite is a condition, found predominantly in women, where areas of adipose tissue (fat) become hard and lumpy and very difficult to remove. The areas of cellulite look dimpled or lumpy, and feel hard and cold to touch. Pushing the flesh between the hands makes the skin very uneven and puckered, similar to the surface of orange peel. Cellulite is more commonly found in overweight individuals, but is also found in slim people and those of ideal weight. In the slim it is present in specific areas, usually the outer thighs, giving the characteristic 'jodhpur' shape. Cellulite is difficult to reduce and remove, even when the individual is on a reducing diet and exercising regularly. Research indicates that there is no physiological difference between cellulite and the more easily removed fat, but there are differences in the supporting connective tissue and in the organisation and circulation of the subcutaneous tissues in cellulitic areas. Fat is stored in specialised cells called...
The 1970s after reading Our Bodies, Ourselves, and realizing that she had been a mere pawn in Hollywood's insatiable quest for actresses with sex appeal. Monroe would have been close to 50 at that point, and sick of dieting in order to keep the tabloids and their cellulite-seeking cameras off her back. She would have admired Elizabeth Taylor's doffing of the sex goddess yolk, and would do the same adding perhaps 40 pounds as she learned how to relax and enjoy life off the Hollywood grid.
There are many nicknames for female fat. We downplay it by using cute or nonoffensive labels such as saddlebags, chunky body, looking healthy, or dimples in the hips and thighs. Or we try to tame it, cover it up, or hold it in using a whole range of garments from girdles to control-top panty hose to baggy clothing. Entire cosmetic industries have arisen to help women get rid of unsightly cellulite and stretch marks, while attractive women's fashions in large sizes are making their mark in stores and in fashion magazines designed for those with a generous figure. Most women wage a lifetime battle with fat, as can be seen by the hundreds of diet books for women that fill bookstore shelves. In fact, at any given time, three out of four women are either trying to lose weight or keep it off.

It is important to remember that spot reduction of fat from a specific area is not possible. To reduce body fat, calorie intake must be less than calorie output. Only then is fat removed from body stores and broken down for energy. The clients must therefore be given advice on sensible eating and made aware of the factors that are thought to contribute to cellulite (see 'advice to clients', on page 221). A variety of treatments may be used to combat cellulite, but massage should always complete the treatment to improve drainage.
The heavier manipulations of kneading, picking up, wringing, hacking, cupping, beating and pounding may be used over the areas of cellulite, according to client needs. The greater the depth and the more consolidated and harder the cellulite, the deeper the manipulations should be unless the area is sensitive and painful, when manipulations must be within the tolerance of the client. Deep, brisk effleurage along the length of the area should conclude the massage.
It is important that clients are made aware of the factors that are thought to contribute to the build up of fat and cellulite. They should be encouraged to follow a self-help, daily regime that will increase the efficiency of the treatment. The following home advice should be given
Home care advice is very beneficial for the client, as it involves them in the treatment and encourages them to take control of their condition. It also provides linkage between one treatment and the next. The advice given will obviously depend on the client's need and condition, e.g. the overweight client or a client with cellulite will need dietary advice. For the tense, overworked client you may suggest that s he tries to reduce her his workload, that s he makes time to rest, takes a relaxing bath and goes to bed early.
You can easily make your own birch leaf oil by infusing the leaves in olive or sweet almond oil. This goes into commercial cellulite treatments, and can be used as a massage oil to relieve muscle aches and pains, fibromyalgia, and rheumatism. Drink birch tea as well for maximum benefit. This can be used as a massage oil for cellulite, fibromyalgia, rheumatism, and other muscle aches and pains. It can be also used on eczema and psoriasis - but remember that these also need to be treated internally, so ask your herbalist for advice. cellulite
