I wish it was that simple to get rid of.

Cellulite isn't, contrary to popular belief, a different kind of fat. You can't really do much to it, honestly; massage is a nice thought, and would probably feel very nice, but it's unlikely to change it. Our bodies aren't made of silly putty. :)

Unless heat and massage were able to break free those connective tissues, I don't see it happening. There have been "treatments" offered over the years that were similar to what you are suggesting, they didn't work.

But if you want to try it, it doesn't really matter what anyone here has to say. Give it a go and let us know how it works out. It would likely be quicker to just read the 2 posted links (info from researchers, experts, doctors, etc.) that will tell you that your idea won't work.

i'm not talking solely about external heat sources ..... as i said, it would be combined with massage ~ very much like kneading lumps out of bread dough *and* over a lengthy period of time.

As hot as this summer has been, we would all be thin if external heat melted away fat.
LOL!

Cellulite is just fat with fibrous connective tissue that ties the skin to the muscles. I don't think heating it would do anything, if it did we could all go to the sauna and actually melt our fat away. That would be awesome, though.

Here's what the Mayo Clinic has on it~

Good question but from all I've heard/read, cellulite is not easy to get rid of!

You NEVER regret a workout!

ok ... if cellulite consists of hard lumps of fat under the skin layer, would it be possible to say, heat up your skin with a heating pad or simply a hot shower and then massage those lumps with the end result being that over a period of time, they'd be broken up & then dissolve?

i'm assuming of course that i'd still be eating nutritiously and continuing with strength and cardio training.

thanks!
