More likely no, than yes .. Since you can lose weight only if you combine body massage with proper nutrition and exercise. Massage is used only in order to increase the effect during weight loss, that is, to tighten the skin, which, possibly from your weight loss, will begin to sag and become flabby, and of course, muscle relaxation, for example, after fitness classes. In principle, you can sign up for a massage course with a masseur or purchase a special massager for yourself and do yourself a massage. I ordered my massager at https://www.beauty-shop.ru/catalog/massazhery_dlja_tela/
You can lose weight by doing it regularly or by taking a special course. Undergoing a special course for such a task, lymphatic drainage techniques are used. After such a course, the body contour will become clearer and tighter. Excess fluid will leave the intercellular spaces and the metabolism will increase.

You can lose weight with a massage. It is important to determine the reason why a person wants to lose weight :) It can be swelling or obesity, is it a transitional age, changes after the birth of a child or self-doubt and complexes?
If, say, obesity is associated with edema, then it is important examination of the body, check the kidneys, hormones. Analyze your diet and lifestyle: how many calories do you consume and how much do you burn? Do you spend enough time outdoors, move, sleep?
In combination with massage, a properly structured nutrition and exercise program for the body will not keep you waiting for a long time. For exercises aimed at slimming, static loads (yoga, Pilates) are good, along with dynamic and cardio loads (jumping rope, brisk walking, stairs :), cross-fit, active rest).
Drink enough clean, still water, it will help remove excess from the body. Eliminate sweet, starchy foods, yeast foods. If you want a treat: drink a glass of clean water and have a snack with an apple, a spoonful of honey :) Try to exclude coffee, carbonated drinks, packaged juices. And so, be sure to eat, do not torment yourself with diets, do not exclude fats from the diet - they affect our hormonal background, for example, you can safely add olive or pumpkin oil to salads, drink milk thistle oil, which has a very good effect on our body. Learn to drink a glass of clean water before meals and reduce the portion to the size of your own cam.
As for massage, such as anti-cellulite massage, abdominal massage and acupressure feet will help to set your body in a new way. After the massage, stool normalizes, excess fluid is removed from the body (lymph stagnation, swelling goes away), you feel a surge of strength, your mood improves :)
Try it and you will definitely succeed!
There is currently a theory that you can easily get rid of subcutaneous fat: for example, by undergoing a course of anti-cellulite or modeling massage.
Most often there is a vague explanation describing that such a massage "breaks" fat cells , as a result of which the fat "goes away", the body volume decreases, the skin becomes smoother and more elastic in 10-12 sessions.
In fact, there are no studies proving that any massage option is like manual and hardware - capable of affecting body fat. In addition, the very idea contradicts the physiology of the human body.
If mechanical action could "break" a fat cell, the intensity of this impact would have more harm than good. In fact, hormones and only hormones affect the release of free fatty acids from the fat cell.
In a simplified manner, the mechanism of fat burning looks like this: under the action of adrenaline and a number of similar hormones, the fat cell releases free fatty acids (FFA ), which the bloodstream carries to the liver, where they are processed into energy.
The hormone insulin, a response to the consumption of carbohydrates or proteins, quite strongly blocks the action of adrenaline, and does not allow the cell to release FFA. In addition, in order to burn fat, the body must need energy, which implies exertion.
Unlike manual massage, which, although not able to get rid of fat, has a number of advantages (including the removal of toxins from tissues and the removal of excess fluid), vibrating belts and massagers can seriously harm health.
There are often cases when the active use of such belts led to a decrease in the tone of the abdominal muscles and the body, as a result of which the internal organs were under the influence unnecessary vibration.
Despite the fact that with the help of massage it is impossible to get rid of subcutaneous fat, no one denies the importance of massage for muscle growth. Sports massage really allows you to speed up recovery after strength training.
The technique of sports and anti-cellulite massage is similar to that of a regular, health-improving one, and the main difference is the activity of the impact - sports massage can even be somewhat painful, especially if it is performed rarely.
