Honey anticellulite massage is based on the interaction of the skin with the biologically active honey particles and includes some standard massage movements. Generally speaking, honey massage belongs to one of the branches of reflex therapy and is an amazing combination of the medicinal properties of honey and massage therapy. The drastic improvement of blood circulation in the deep level of the skin and the adjacent muscles contributes to the nourishment of the internal organs and tissues. Honey, in giving away its biologically active matter, adsorbs toxins and provides for their quick elimination from the body. It improves lymphatic drainage and skin cleansing. After this massage, the skin becomes smooth and radiant and there is an improvement in the general condition of the body. Honey massage should be included in any anticellulite program, but can also be a separate, very efficient treatment in itself! The honey massage therapy course includes 15 sessions that need to be taken every other day.

 

The art of healing comes from nature, not from the physician. Therefore the physician must come from nature, with an open mind.
