Vacuum massage is a type of therapeutic massage which is used for body sculpting, cellulite reduction and to treat such diseases as osteochondrosis, colds, bronchitis and pneumonia. The medical effect of this massage is realized by means of vacuum that causes the local rush of blood and lymph to skin from deep lying tissues, which exerts the reflex influence on vessels of internal organs. Usually vacuum massage is performed by using rubber glass, a small silicone massager.[citation needed]

Vacuum massage is believed to be one of the most trusted and efficient treatment against cellulite.[citation needed] It smooths hypodermic fat layer and skin becomes more elastic.

Vacuum massage technique[edit]

The massage is easy to perform. There are three simple rules: the massaged area must be greased well (never use rubber glass on dry skin), use three massage movements–straight-line, circular and zigzag (repeat each 5-6 times), control the vacuum–massage doesn’t have to be painful. Massage each area at least for 5 minutes.
