Acupuncture Cellulite Treatment Melbourne: is acupuncture an effective natural method of reducing Cellulite?
Did you know that cellulite is considered a form of energy stagnation in Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine theory? How can this ancient method of healing reduce cellulite?
What actually is cellulite?
Cellulite is a term used to describe the dimpling appearance of skin, often found around the thighs and buttocks in women. Cellulite is a normal and harmless condition that presents a cosmetic concern to many people. The dimples appear due to protrusions within the first fat layer due to a combination of genetic tendencies, combined with lifestyle factors such as lack of exercise, poor diet and stress.
How does Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine view cellulite?
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) views cellulite as a lifestyle and energy flow problem. TCM views the even distribution of fat throughout the body as an energetic function of the spleen. When the spleen is out of balance due to excess worry, over thinking, over sitting, decreased exercise and consumption of damp producing foods such as dairy, wheat and processed foods, fat accumulates. When this accumulation combines with stress and repressed emotions it stagnates creating the dimpling appearance of cellulite. This theory of energy stagnation combining with fat accumulation leads the acupuncturist and herbalist to choose the right acupuncture point combinations and herbal formulas that will get results for you.
How can Chinese Medicine Help?
Chinese medicine uses acupuncture, cupping, herbal medicine and lifestyle advice to reduce fat and move stagnation with the aim of reducing cellulite.
