The dreaded “orange peel” or “cottage cheese” skin around the buttock, thighs, tummy, calves and ankles is the bane of many women’s existence.
The subcutaneous tissues are a web of connective tissue, where much of a woman’s body fat is stored. The fatty cells get enlarged and become dimpled and puckered. Also, contributing to the effect is fluid retention, the storage of environmental toxins, hormonal factors, and lack of circulation.
When circulation within this web of connective tissue becomes blocked, cellular waste stagnates, and these tissues harden as the skin loses its elasticity. The puckering is caused by this act of shriveling, dimpling and adherence of the skin to tissues underneath.
Healthy solutions for defeating cellulite have been elusive, but the German Sanaderm Clinic performed a six month research project proving the effectiveness of whole body vibration training to solve the problem.
In the study 25.7 % improvement over 6 months using whole body vibration 3 times a week for 10 minutes. When combined with cardio exercise the improvement increased to 32%. Cellulite is particularly present in the lower extremities so try sitting on the vibration plate or on a 6 inch stool placed on the vibration plate.
Cellulite loss can be healthy, efficient, time-saving and fun. Combine whole body vibration with a calorie reduced diet and burn away this fat. Increased muscle tone will help create a firmer surface below the fat, giving your skin a smoother, tighter appearance.
Improved circulation will carry vital oxygen to your cells and tissues, assist in flushing toxins, while increasing the production of collagen. Result: significant reduction of cellulite.
Don’t forget to use proper hydration to help flush trapped toxins from the affected areas.
