Understanding fat and the Slimming Massage

More than 80% of women above 20 years old have cellulite. For hormonal reason, metabolism or other reasons, but it is not necessary linked with excess weight.  Sometimes, dieting or practicing a sport cannot eliminate the appearance of "pitted" cellulite on certain parts of our body, and we need a specialized massage to accelerate our metabolism and eliminate superficial fat.

What is a Slim­ming Massage?

Dur­ing Kocoon’s slim­ming mas­sage, you will undergo mul­ti­ple slim­ming mas­sage tech­niques, from rub­bing and mas­sag­ing to slap­ping and palper rouler. These tech­niques aim to rup­ture and dis­rupt pock­ets of fat, which will result in a reduc­tion in the appear­ance of “pit­ted” cel­lulite. Your ther­a­pist will also stim­u­late blood and lymphatic circulation in your body. We use a special blend of essen­tial oils dur­ing the mas­sage ses­sion as well as Elemental Herbology’s SOS circulation serum to expand on the effec­tive­ness of the massage.

Where is the cellulite located in general?

Ladies: Arms, back, stomach, waist, bottom, hips, thighs, lower and upper legs. Gentlemen: Chest, back, stomach and waist, and upper legs. 80% of women above 20 have cellulite- due to various reasons; lifestyle, hormonal, metabolism etc...Basically, even with a healthy lifestyle, and even if you are slim, you can have cellulite! 

What to expect?

After a consultation with your Spa Therapist, the session will be targeted on specific areas where the cellulite is localized, thus, don’t expect a full body relaxing massage!

Will I look slimmer?

After the first session, but you may feel an immediate relief and increased energy due to improved blood circulation. We recommend several sessions for visible results.

Targeted Slimming Program:

For optimum performance, we recommend 5 to 10 treatments. After a consultation, the therapist will be able to allocate each session to work on specific areas and alternate them, until completion of the treatment. Benefits of a Slimming Massage program:
  • Shape your tummy, back, thighs, arms and other problem areas
  • Reduce cellulite throughout your body while firming your skin
  • Stimulation blood circulation
  • Increased energy level
  • Extra tip: To increase the efficiency of this program, we recommend eating regular meals, emphasizing lower fat foods and avoiding dairy in order to help clear dampness.

Understanding fat:

What are the different types?

 Surface fat forms on the surface of your abdomen, buttocks, thighs and other problem areas. This type of fat also causes cellulite, which occurs when lumps of fat beneath your skin harden over time. Visceral fat forms within your abdomen, and can be found around internal organs such as the liver, stomach and intestines.

Why does your fat becoming more stubborn?

Your metabolism starts to slow down anytime between your mid-20s to early 30s. Because as you age, you lose muscle and brown fat – the two tissues that are crucial for burning excess fat in your body. That is why you find yourself dieting or exercising several times harder to achieve the same results you did 10 years ago.  

Does that mean dieting and exercising are enough? It is not that simple, because:

  • Even with proper diet and exercise, your weight is likely to plateau at some point. Your metabolism slows down even more as your weight is reduced, since a lighter body burns less calories. This means your rate of weight loss will slow down unless you turn up the intensity of your diet and exercise.
  • Even with proper diet and exercise, you can still lose weight without losing inches. Diet and exercise are more effective at burning visceral fat in your abdomen, and less effective against surface fat. This explains why some of us can lose a significant amount of weight without seeing much visible change to our figure.
  • Even with proper diet and exercise, you cannot control where your body loses its fat.Fat in some areas are just less responsive to diet and exercise. So even though a weight loss diet can reduce your overall waistline, it rarely produces much inch loss in stubborn areas such as the outer thighs, inner thighs and upper arms. Studies have also proven that intensively exercising a specific body part will not produce more inch loss in that area.
