Cellulite is a MYTH!
Cellulite, a tale as old as time; those unsightly dimples and dents that we are all too familiar with. As a matter of fact, studies show that 90% of women have, had, or will have cellulite at some point in their life. Assumptions have been made as to why we have it, but still no one has found a concrete answer. Why hasn’t a cure for cellulite been found?
While there is tons of research on the subject and countless diets, creams, and exercise regimens have been invented as a “solution”, women have tried everything and nothing seems to work. Frustrated, as I’m sure many of you are, you’ve had to accept your cellulite as just an embarrassing part of yourself, and while some have embraced it as a part of life, others have chosen to hide it away!
Nothing has worked because – until now – nothing has addressed the real issue.
The truth is that “cellulite” is simply a symptom of unhealthy fascia! I mentioned “fascia” and you’re all like…say whaaaaa? Don’t worry, I’m here to explain it to you! Fascia, simply put, is the body’s web-like connective tissue that runs all over, throughout, inside and in-between; it encases, penetrates, and runs alongside, over and under every structure. Fascia plays an essential part in the body’s anatomy and interplays with literally every system.
So now you know what fascia is, but how and why does it cause cellulite? Firstly, when your fascia is healthy, it is smooth, malleable, and able to assist every system of the body to work together seamlessly. On the other hand, fascia can become unhealthy due to various factors such as dehydration, overuse, injuries, and a buildup of toxins. This can cause the fascia to tighten and adhere to itself, as well as other structures of the body including skin and muscle (read my blog I wrote all about fascia). When the fascia is tight, it causes pain, restriction, and yes, you guessed it, cellulite.
When the fascia adheres to the skin, it pulls the skin down, and when the fat pushes up against the uneven, grid-like fascia, it can cause a dimpled look like the tufting on a sofa. This creates the look of “cellulite”. While fat does play a part, it is not the root of the problem! I am all about finding and fixing the CAUSE, rather than simply treating the “symptom”. If the fascia were in its regular healthy, pliable state, the same fat would lay flat. Imagine a sausage: sausage is ground up meat put into a plastic casing. The meat itself has no shape, but when you put it in this casing, it takes its form. Same with our fat cells! If the casing (fascia) is smooth, your skin will appear smooth.
