Tratamiento anticelulítico

Summer is here! Anti-cellulite treatment benefits

In this article we review the benefits of anti-cellulite treatment.

For centuries we have been afraid of the word cellulite. It seems to be a ghost that surrounds us and makes us feel uncomfortable with our body.

Fortunately, today there are many and very varied anti-cellulite treatments, both to prevent and reduce cellulite. Here we tell you how an anti-cellulite massage can help fight it.

What do we mean when we talk about cellulite?

Cellulite, or orange peel, is what irregular accumulation of adipose tissue is called.

The characteristic dimpled appearance is formed in the most superficial layer of the skin, called the hypodermis.

By altering circulation in this layer, more fat cells are generated that increase the growth of fatty tissue and thicken the side walls.

It is more common to see it in the lower body, on the thighs and buttocks, although it can occur throughout the body, both in men and women.

Anti-cellulite treatment

One of the best ways to restore circulation in the dermis and counteract the appearance of orange peel is anti-cellulite massage.

At Aurum Wellbeing we have a specialized anti-cellulite massage service to help you in treatment.

During the 45 minutes that the session lasts, you will receive an intense and deep massage to reactivate circulation.

Thanks to the mechanical action of the massage, fatty accumulations are mobilized and partly eliminated. All this, accompanied by aromatherapy and essential oils, reduces the shape of cellulite and improves the general appearance of the skin.

Natural products

To enhance the result of anti-cellulite massages, you can perform your own daily massages with the application of products.

The current market is full of creams and tonics for the treatment of cellulite, this time, we propose two natural options to add to your routine.

Woman pregnant massage

Pregnant massages: which are the most appropriate

 In this article we present the benefits of massages for pregnant women. As long as they are performed by expert hands, massages carry many advantages during pregnancy. Research shows that practicing massage during pregnancy can be important for the psycho-physical well-being of future mothers. Therefore, it is not about giving yourself a luxury, but a caress, a very special hug for the mother and the baby in the womb. The positive effects of massage during pregnancy are:

  • reduction of anxiety;
  • decreased pain in the legs and back;
  • keeping the skin in an optimal state of hydration to counteract stretch marks;
  • better sleep and rest;
  • decreased levels of norepinephrine, stress hormone; better immune system performance;
  • valuable help for the birth and health of the newborn;
  • better posture that relieves a lot of pain.

Massages and depression

In a study on the benefits of massage in pregnancy for women affected by depression, it was highlighted:
  • increased levels of serotonin and dopamine, hormones to feel good;
  • decreased cortisol levels, an indicator of stress;
  • a general improvement in mood;
  • benefit to inflamed nerves, helping to release tension in the surrounding muscles
  • significant reduction of sciatic nerve pain;
  • hormonal regulation
 
Mesajes para embarazadas

Studies conducted in the past 10 years show that in women receiving biweekly massage treatment, stress hormones such as norepinephrine and cortisol are reduced for just five weeks. In addition, dopamine and serotonin levels increase: the decrease in these hormones is associated with depression. These changes in hormone levels have also led to fewer complications during labor and fewer cases of neonatal complications, such as low birth weight.
The health of mothers and babies improves when massage is an integral part of prenatal care.
In short, prenatal massages, operated by professionals, have a therapeutic purpose. On the one hand, muscle and joint functions increase. On the other hand they improve circulation, tone the body and revitalize the mental state of the future mother. At Aurum Wellbeing we perform massages for pregnant women, always on their back or on their sides so as not to harm the fetus.

Massage during pregnancy is an excellent solution to enjoy some pampering and a moment of well-being. In addition to waiting anxiety, a pregnant woman can experience several problems:

  • Swollen legs
  • Headache
  • Back pain
  • Insomnia
  • General nervousness
  • Feeling of fatigue

The best massages for pregnant women

Lymphatic drainage

Feeling lighter and lighter It is par excellence the most recommended massage for pregnant women, it is less aggressive than any other massage. Its smooth and repetitive movements help activate the lymphatic system and stimulate drainage of the lymph, toxins, fats and surrounding fluids that precede waste from the circulatory system. The goal is to avoid stagnation of liquids, which in pregnancy can cause edema (swelling). Thanks to this massage based on a series of delicate and repeated manipulations it is possible to reduce inflammation. Immediately after the massage you will feel incredibly light legs, a sensation due to the improvement of circulation.

Again, it is best to wait for the first trimester to pass.

Reiki

Reiki is not exactly a massage but it is proven to help balance the body and the mind: in addition to improving circulation and posture, it provides a great feeling of relaxation and lightness throughout the body. Some caveats: it is better to wait to do it after the first trimester, when the most delicate period can be considered past. Also, it is good not to massage the energy points related to the uterus.

Facial cleansing: removes imperfections of the skin

Facial cleansing is recommended to nourish and moisturize the skin, to reduce imperfections and impurities, and to counteract the passage of time.

Brighter and healthier skin

The skin of our body is completely renewed every 30 days. Every day, however, we accumulate toxic waste on our faces. As the skin is comparable to a sponge, the natural hydrolipidic film absorbs smog, makeup remains combined with several layers of dead cells.

Due to these residues, the skin is neglected and tends to weaken, fading and dimming. It also tends to form pimples, spots, wrinkles and blackheads.

Keep the skin bright and radiant through facial cleansing.

The cleaning of the face, if done correctly and regularly, protects the skin from opacity and weakening.

In fact, the skin nourishes and moisturizes and all imperfections decrease drastically.

limpieza facial

What is a professional facial cleansing

During the treatment the pores are opened to purify the skin, eliminating dirt. In addition, circular massages are performed to improve circulation.

Facial cleansing is effective to eliminate blackheads, very common at any age, also called pimples, or fat masses classified as impurities that have infiltrated the hair follicles.

At Aurum Wellbeing, a center of professional aesthetics in the center of Barcelona, we use natural soothing, astringent and anti-inflammatory extracts.

limpieza facial

Even skin without spots

Facial cleansing means caring for the skin of the face and keeping it perfectly free of all impurities.

This treatment allows to thoroughly purify the skin by eliminating dead cells, pimples and black spots. These appear due to the accumulation of toxins and harmful substances that are deposited due to an incorrect diet and lifestyle and external agents that constantly attack it.

Specific products against stains are not usually effective. A deep facial cleansing contributes to the improvement of the appearance and health of the skin of the face.

After facial cleansing we recommend protecting the skin from the sun for at least 3 days. Then the face will be ready for a perfect tan.

Lymphatic drainage: everything you need to know

Lymphatic drainage is not only an excellent massage against cellulite. In fact it produces multiple benefits for the health of the entire organism, restoring the correct functioning of the lymphatic system. For example it eliminates toxins and stimulates the immune and nervous system.

Two thirds of our body’s fluid is made up of water. For this reason it is important to understand the mobilization of fluid in our body.

drenaje linfático

What is the lymphatic system?

A few centuries ago, in the time of Hippocrates and Aristotle, there was talk of the existence of a human body of conduits carrying a white liquid. This liquid was attributed the name of white blood.

The lymphatic system is an open system and parallel to the circulatory system of the blood formed by: lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, lymph. In particular its function is to reabsorb substances and components that in the circulatory system can not pass. For example fat or liposoluble and large molecules.

The lymph is the result of the collection of substances and waste. At the beginning it is white and as it picks up substances and fats it turns yellow.

The lymph also has immune function. In fact in the lymph are white blood cells called lymphocytes and are responsible for cleaning and purifying waste. In the lymph nodes there are the large purifiers where the T lymphocytes and B lymphocytes are located. Here foreign particles are eliminated thanks to phagocytosis or cytokines that are responsible for destroying pathogens.

Lymphatic drainage massage for cellulite

It is one of the most effective anti-cellulite treatments to eliminate swelling and fluid retention. It is ideal for those who are still at an early stage of the problem.

Cellulite is often the result of severe fluid stagnation.

Thanks to the lymphatic drainage massage it is possible to solve this problem quickly, freeing the occluded lymph nodes and facilitating the flow of liquids to the main nodes.

The lymphatic drainage massage is recognized as a very effective cellulite treatment.

How a lymphatic drainage massage is performed

Although people are getting increasingly fashionable, they do not know how this massage works.

The technique of manual lymphatic drainage begins by opening the “drainage” zone, that is, by draining the neck and terminus lymph nodes.

The effect is to remove the drain plug so that the lymph can flow more quickly and easily into the bloodstream. Thus, liquids and molecules that are not necessary go through the body’s filters and are eliminated.

After draining the area of ​​the neck goes to the affected area or where there is fluid retention. Consequently, it will flow more easily.

This massage activates the lymphatic system during 2 or 3 days, eliminating and purifying everything that the body does not need.

It is performed with a soft and light touch on the surface of the skin, mobilizing the superficial lymph of the skin at specific points to take it to the main areas of “drainage”. This lymph ends up coming back to the blood by “terminus“, the end of the path of the lymphatic system and where it goes back into the bloodstream.

Lymphatic drainage also favors recovery after surgery. In a few words it drains the bruises and helps them to disappear quickly. It also helps reduce inflammation easily for quick recovery.

Cosmetic surgeons almost always recommend it, in treatments such as liposuction, liposculpture, facial cosmetic surgery and others.

drenaje linfático

A little history

The original technique was described by Dr. Vodder in the 30s. Dr. Vodder addressed pathologies related to the respiratory system. After seeing the improvements and rapidity with which his patients evolved after receiving this treatment, he applied it to other parts of the body.

Dr. Vodder proved the important benefits that the DLM produced on the body, especially in the immune and nervous system. At the same time he observed the effect on the tissues of the body helping to detoxify it. Thanks to him now we have one of the best and most effective techniques to heal the body.
