A physiotherapist has been branded the “cellulite slayer” because she helps clients to smooth out their pins.

Tetyana Probyy-Holova, who is originally from the Ukraine, runs a clinic in Chelsea, London.

Customers pay £140 for her “signature cellulite slayer massage”, where trained beauticians target “problem areas like thighs, hips, stomach and arms”.

Cupping techniques are used along with intensive massage to “instantly lift and sculpt the body”.

But if you don’t have the cash to spend on the luxury treatment, there’s no need to fret.

On her Instagram page, Tetyana shares her top tips for reducing cellulite on your own at home.

Here are her top six pieces of advice…

1. Have regular epsom salt baths

This month, Tetyana said: “Epsom salt contains magnesium and helps to reduce swelling, inflammation, stiffness, and pain.

“Definitely one to try.”

The expert recommends doing these twice a week for 20-25 minutes each time.

You should use a minimum of 500mg of product to see the best results.

2. Self massage daily

On Instagram, Tetyana explained: “Self massage increases circulation, preventing cellulite.

“It stimulates organ function, helps your body detox and improves sleep.

“It also has many other benefits, such as slowing ageing, nourishing your skin.”

Run your hands over areas of your body that you’re prone to getting cellulite.

Regular massaging can apparently make all the difference.

3. Get enough sleep

The cellulite slayer warned her 13,300 that sleep is key when you’re trying to look your best.

She wrote: “When it comes to your beauty routine, sleep may be the closest thing there is to a fountain of youth.

“Your body repairs itself and recovers while you snooze, and that leads to a long list of benefits for your looks.

“The key is to get seven to nine quality hours each night.”

4. Eat well

Look for foods that fuel your body instead of focusing on “eating less”.

Tetyana said: “So you might wonder, what is the secret to keeping your body in shape indefinitely. The answer is simple – clean and healthy eating.

“You should eat a wide range of foods to make sure you’re getting a balanced diet and your body is receiving all the nutrients it needs to function properly.”

According to the NHS, a balanced diet should include five portions of fruit and vegetable a day, fibre, dairy and unsaturated fats.

You should also drink plenty of fluids – aim for two litres of water a day.

5. Exfoliate

Looking for glowing skin?

Make sure you’re exfoliating and moisturising regularly.

Cellulite slayer advises: “Exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells and uncovers fresh new cells below.

“This opens the way for moisturising products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective.”

6. Tan

We know it’s winter but bear with us!

Tetyana said: “Cellulite always looks less visible on tanned legs.”

And as the sun is nowhere to be seen at the moment, fake bake can cover a multitude of sins.

Not only does it give you a lovely bronzed glow, it can also help to smooth over any dimpling on the skin.
