Can Cupping Reduce Cellulite?

The dimpled, orange-peel skin characteristic of cellulite is not an illness but if you don’t like having it there are things you can do to reduce its appearance and prevent it forming.

Cellulite is the stagnation of fatty tissue commonly on the hips and thighs. I have had so many of my female clients complain of their cellulite – even thin ones – and have had enough happy clients that I have decided to advertise my bespoke, anti-cellulite acupuncture-cupping treatment programme.

So, if you decide not to ignore your cellulite but do something about it you may have to commit to a few longer term life-style changes – see Homework.

The aim of the treatment programme is to disperse the fat and improve circulation to the area.  As a traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncturist (tCM) I will look, amongst other things, at why your body is depositing fat in these areas. Often, there are energy lines/meridians which run through the area – perhaps the Gall Bladder (GB).

Your acupuncture-cupping programme will be based on full tCM diagnosis and followed by a blend of cupping massage, local acupuncture and body acupuncture. Our aim is to find out why you are getting cellulite, disperse your cellulite and minimise it's recurrance.

What to Expect
An initial diagnosis discussing your health, diet & lifestyle.  Followed by a first treatment which will start with some deep massage & cupping followed by local and body needling.
