You can learn some amazing routines for this but it's always best to go to a professional as they can perform a lymphatic massage very well and making sure it is beneficial.
2. Constipation Relief
Performing a self-massage on your abdomen could potentially ease constipation in a number of ways, such as by stimulating the muscles involved in producing bowel movements. Chronic stress comes with various side effects and one of them is your gastro intestinal system. This also helps with bloating as it helps release tension in your stomach area.
One popular technique involves placing your palm on your abdomen and then making small, circular, clockwise motions around your belly button. You can also widen these circles as you go along so that the massage covers your entire abdomen.
A lot of people have cellulite and it's completely normal for every human being as it is stored fat and our body needs fat for warmth and to look youthful. There are very useful massage tips to combat cellulite, one of the is wood therapy. This technique is super popular in some cultures and has been proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Wood therapy involves wooden tools to shape and diminish cellulite. There are also many other methods including a 30min self massage where you use the tip of your thumb and fingers to knead your skin (almost as if you were pinching yourself) for 10 minutes. This can be followed by a anti cellulite scrub or cream and you can also incorporate a silicone cup, move the cup in a circular motion from your feet upward. It has been said that if you do these massages everyday in a month you will see a real difference in the area.
