The modeling massage aims to shape your body giving it new contours to your shapes. The method is often confused with lymphatic drainage, but it has the intention of drawing curves and has vigorous movements, while the drainage is calmer and aims only to deflate.
The technique can be applied on the arms, abdomen, back, buttocks and legs.
The modeling massage should be done once or twice a week, and usually the treatment should be continuous, to have the maintenance of the results. But in people with balanced diet and constant physical activity is indicated after treatment a session every 15, 20 days after obtaining the expected result. Each session lasts an average of 30 to 40 minutes, and there may be an interval of 48 to 72 hours between each session, according to the evaluation.
Modelling massage offers several benefits to its adepts:
- Improved appearance of cellulite
- Less fluid retention
- Reduction of measures
- Contouring curves
People with heart disease or hypertension are contraindicated, because massage promotes vasodilation and this can increase systemic blood pressure.
People with fever should also avoid, because the procedure raises the temperature even more. People with osteoporosis may suffer fractures or micro-fractures due to bone fragility.
