For women, massage is very useful in terms of figure correction: it reduces the volume, tidies the abdominal skin, helps in the fight against stretch marks, and also improves the digestive process.
There is an opinion of dietitians that a belly massage promotes weight loss without the use of physical exertion and debilitating diets, only if the weight does not exceed the permissible standards. It will be more effective to massage the abdomen in combination with a well-balanced diet and special physical exercises. Its advantage lies in the fact that during the massaging of the abdomen in this place increases lymph flow and blood circulation, and along with it the process of fat burning in the body is accelerated and the peristalsis of the intestine improves.
Massage during a session with a specialist begins with a slight stroking of the skin clockwise. It is this movement that improves digestion. Then stroking becomes more energetic and is carried out not only with the palms, but also with the fists. Particular attention to the massage therapist during the session is given to fat folds, which are fingered and "rubbed" with palms. Gradually the movements acquire a vibrating character, followed by a sharp pressure, and then their pressure decreases and turns to calm stroking.to the table of contents ^
