Not every dimple on your body is cellulite. It can also be excess liquid that shows up as imperfections on your bum, legs, arms and belly.
Water accounts for 60% of the body’s weight. It’s an essential part in cells and blood, which are the main components in skin, organs and muscles.
Bearing in mind that water is absolutely crucial to allow our body to function and that any excess water is being expelled naturally, it may seem a little strange that it can also cause the orange peel-skin, that ladies dislike so much.
Fluid regularly leaks into body tissues from the blood. The lymphatic system is a network of tubes throughout the body that drains this fluid (called lymph) from tissues and empties it back into the bloodstream. It transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, collecting toxins on the way and flushing them out through the lymph nodes. Fluid retention occurs when the fluid isn’t removed from the tissues correctly. Lymph plays the key role that allows your immune system to be working properly.
There is a wide range of causes for water retention. Some of those can be a poor diet, generally unhealthy lifestyle, lack of activity, incorrect body posture or not enough sleep. Some people are more prone to experience it due to hereditary factors. It is also an xceedingly common issue during pregnancy.
Let’s talk about lymphatic drainage massage and how it can alleviate water retention.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a therapeutic, rhythmical massage, uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body.
It dramatically reduces water retention and swelling, helps with weight loss, boosts digestion and immune system, improves metabolism and circulation, promotes relaxation and general wellbeing.
