BBB 23 participant Bruna Griphao is a fan of healthy eating and an intense training routine, but she is also a fan of lymphatic drainage. Massage therapist and aromatherapist Raquel Ump, who also works with a number of celebrities, recently told Purepeople how the actress’ massage program worked before she entered reality TV.
According to the specialist, Bruna followed a routine of weekly procedures, which amounted to about four a month. She and she did not abandon the sessions: even with a tight schedule during the recording of the television series “Nos Tempos do Imperador”, she found a way to arrange appointments.
Raquel explained that she associated the drainage with aromatherapy. “For example: she came from training and had muscle fatigue, we chose a mixture of oils that would enhance the drainage, emptying and improvement of blood circulation effect,” she told the news portal.
What is this?
Lymphatic drainage is a manual massage technique that can be performed on the body or face. In this sense, it is performed with smooth, rhythmic maneuvers and always in the direction of the lymphatic system.
It is indicated, for example, for treatments before or after surgery, as well as for people with poor blood circulation, as well as pregnant women, people with cellulite, edema, relaxation of tense people, among other indications.
As it is a manual massage technique, resources such as cream, powder, oil or gel can be used to facilitate sliding. Or just a touch of the hand directly on the skin.
Does sanitation, which Bruna Griphao is so fond of, make you lose weight?
Raquel Umb also told Purepeople that many people mistakenly associate lymphatic drainage with weight loss. Also, it is believed that the fat will be eliminated through the urine after the massage. And it’s just a myth.
This is because what happens is that the procedure can help reduce fluid retention and swelling. That reduces scales, but doesn’t burn fat. For this to happen, it is necessary to combine this technique with a healthy diet and regular physical activity.
