For years, beauty brands have been trying to sell women ‘miracle’ cellulite treatments. Whether it be a cream, a wrap, or some other type of over-the-counter treatment, the reality is that most treatments are full of chemicals that don’t even work. That is why many people are now turning to more natural cures for their cellulite woes. One of these is known as Gyratory Massage, or the G5 massage for short.
What is the G5 gyratory massage?
The G5 gyratory massage is, basically, a type of deep tissue massage. The massage is delivered with the help of a machine with a hand-held attachment which the technician can use to create an intense massage session, using various types of pressures and techniques. It is often used in conjunction with manual massage techniques.
How does it work?
Massages work by stimulating lymphatic flow. This helps to break down fat deposits, leading to a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and fatty tissue.
What are the benefits of a G5 massage?
Aside from a reduction in the appearance of cellulite, G5 massage also provides the same full range of benefits as a sports massage. These may include, but are not limited to:
- Relief of muscle pain and spasms
- Mobilization of fluid in the tissues
- Prevention of muscle fatigue and stiffness
- Retention of muscle tone
Who can get a gyratory Massage?
Gyratory massages are safe for most people.
How many sessions before I see a difference in cellulite?
Everybody is different, but generally speaking you should start to see a change in your skin within 4-5 massage sessions. For maximum results, a six week course of treatments is suggested. Once results are seen, you can reduce your sessions to once a month.
Is it painful or dangerous?
No – massage is great for the body and sessions can often be seen as quite relaxing. With that being said, massage does stimulate the lymphatic system (causing toxin release) so it is important that you drink plenty of water both before and after treatment.
Where can you get a gyratory massage?
To get a gyratory massage, you don’t have to travel far. Many local spas, salons, and clinics, offer it as a service to their clients. Different heads are also available for different areas of the body and uses.
Does gyratory massage work?
Gyratory massage can help to improve the overall appearance of cellulite, but it is best used when combined with daily exercise and healthy diet. Regardless of its effectiveness for cellulite, a G5 massage can only be beneficial. Even if you don’t see a reduction in the appearance of your cellulite, G5 massages can still be helpful for relaxation, pain relief, increased circulation, lymphatic drainage, muscle swelling, and so much more.
