A Whole Body Approach to Better Beauty
Dissipating stagnant lymph and increasing lymphatic circulation can reduce toxic fluid buildup and has been found to be highly effective in the lasting reduction of cellulite. The lymph continuously bathes each cell and drains away the detritus in a circulatory system powered by movement and breathing.
The lymph channels are the body’s drainage system. A major contribution to the formation of cellulite begins when this system is unable to effectively flush toxins away from the cells due to sluggish lymphatic circulation.
Impaired lymph flow to certain areas can contribute to immobilizing pockets of fat and trapped fluids.
Cellulite begins when numerous fat cells collect in one area, causing the skin to bulge. This dimpling effect occurs when the connective fibers in the skin pull down where body fat is pushing up. Trapped fluids and toxins can accumulate in the pockets of fat. Compromised circulation of lymph and blood is believed to be one of the primary causes of the formation of cellulite.
