Laser Cellulite Reduction
The Truth About Cellulite!
Dimples Belong On Golf Balls - Not Butts!
Between 80% - 90% of women have some form of cellulite, and 10% of men have it. Cellulite is most often a lymphatic condition. It is influenced by poor lymphatic circulation combined with lack of blood flow.
Its dimpled, lumpy appearance (most often seen on the glutes, abdomen, and the thighs) is often described as resembling cottage cheese, or an orange peel, but it’s a cosmetic issue, not a health issue. Like most things in nature, cellulite is not a quick fix.
Fascia connects all connective tissue, providing a flexible structure between our muscles and skin. However, when our muscles become tight or injured, circulation is diminished. This causes our fascia to lose its elasticity, enabling fat to protrude through our connective tissue to bulge beneath the skin, and our lymphatic system to get stagnant and congested.
The fascia looks like layers of spider webs and when these spider webs are restricted they glue together and this binds the fat and creates the appearance of cellulite. Where the fascia is restricted there is also often swelling, inflammation, edema and congestion.
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 and trapped fluid.
As fabulous as healthy eating and exercise are for your health and wellbeing, these steps alone rarely eliminate cellulite. Age, hormones, poor lymphatic flow, diet, lack of movement and genetics have all been connected with the formation of cellulite.

F.L.O.W ~ Fascia. Lymphatic Optimize. Wellness.
The benefits of loving your fascia… Have you ever wondered why you can’t touch your toes? Or why your organs don’t knock around inside you when you jump rope? Have you ever wondered how your muscles stay attached to your bones? Or why you have cellulite? It’s not a mystery anymore. In short, fascia is connective tissue. It surrounds body parts from organs to muscles to blood vessels.
The answer to these under-the-radar questions about your body is your fascia (pronounced fah-sha). But why haven’t we heard more about it? It has a lot to do with the lymphatic system, because that’s where a lot of the lymph vessels are found. Fascia takes many forms, from stretchy to stiff. It appears throughout the body, and because it’s so widespread, keeping your fascia healthy is essential.
