Treating Cellulite With Block Therapy, Joanne Holt

Getting rid of stubborn cellulite can be challenging. Try block therapy!

First of all, what is cellulite?

Frozen fascia that pulls the skin down toward the bone in the leg causes a “dimpling” of the skin on the surface which we call cellulite. The fascia curls around the bone in our legs, griping more and more as the fascia freezes. This all happens when we are not getting proper amounts of blood flow to an area and out body is “out of alignment”. 

When we work with the Block doing Block Therapy, we can “melt” through the fascia in the legs. We use the diaphragmatic breathe to work through the pain in our own bodies on our own time and by doing this we remove toxins and by products of functioning. We can release the fascia which reverses the dimpling. The skin then becomes much healthier and vibrant which in turn makes us look younger too.

When doing Block Therapy for the legs, we work on the quadriceps, hamstrings, iliotibial band, piriformis, hip flexors, calves and feet. We bring the pain to the surface and melt through the restrictions and it can really help to reduce the look of cellulite.
