Gua Sha Cellulite Blasting.
The idea is that the fascia, or myofascial tissue, contributes to the look of cellulite when it’s tight. For this reason, fascia manipulation, a technique that aims to loosen the fascia through physical manipulation and pressure, has become a trending topic in the health and wellness realm. One widely popular method is fascia blasting. This technique uses a tool that’s designed to loosen the fascia, which is supposed to reduce cellulite.
Fascia is a continuous layer of connective tissue that covers all your muscles, bones, organs, and nerves. It’s mostly made of collagen and it helps to give form to your body. The continuous nature of fascia helps your body parts move. Fascia attaches, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs, allowing these structures to slide and move through the body.
When fascia is healthy, it’s flexible enough to twist, glide, and bend. But inflammation and trauma can tighten the fascia, causing pain AND things like cellulite - the orange peel–like, dimpled skin texture that most often appears on the thighs, hips, and buttocks. Women with cellulite may have weakness in the dermis and connective tissue, including the superficial fascia.
Gua Sha Fascia Blasting is a form of fascial manipulation where Dr. Lucas uses a gua sha tool.
