Maderotherapy is a massage technique very popular in Europe. This technique was developed in Columbia for body treatment of different conditions, but cellulite as well. This technique uses approximately 10 anatomically made wooden tools which makes Maderotherapy 100% natural. Maderotherapy balances body energy, releases stress, brings muscle relief and joint pain.
With wooden massage rolling pins it is possible to treat fascial restrictions, muscle soreness and stiffness by warming up the muscles and softening tissue. This massage technique increases circulation, breaks up and prevents formation of myofascial adhesions. Additionally, rolling of affected body parts with natural wooden rollers stretches and improves rehydration of fascia and other connective tissues. With the increased blood flow to the muscles, it will improve the breaking down of adipose (fat) tissue cells and the results of it will be increased skin elasticity and decreased muscle tone. All of this will increase mobility, range of motion and flexibility.
It was shown that Maderotherapy is an effective technique for body shaping and contouring, so important effect of this treatment is breaking and reshaping cellulite which is a product of unhealthy fascia.
We are health practitioners and we should not forget one of the biggest problems females face - CELLULITE. 85-98% of overall population (mostly females) are suffering from orange-peel like skin or more precise, the subcutaneous layer.
The best treatment for cellulite is Maderotherapy which can target all three types of cellulite, especially if it is combined with lymphatic drainage. (Overview of Lymphatic System is going to be covered during the course)
If Maderotherapy is applied superficially in a fast pace, it becomes the perfect treatment for cellulite. But same tools could be used in a slower manner over contractures and short muscles to treat hypertonicity, to increase elasticity of muscles and fascia and to increase mobility of joints crossed by treated muscles. Maderotherapy of any body part is finished by Manual Lymphatic Drainage to flush out toxins and improve blood and lymph flow. This is why Maderotherapy is recommended for detoxification of the body for clients going through withdrawal from alcohol, cigarettes and drugs.
