                  As we get older, our bodies are constantly subjected to wear and tear, especially for those who live active lifestyles, or partake in strenuous activities. Joints, ligaments, cartilage, muscle, and bones are all parts of the body that can be constantly impacted and worn down throughout the years.

                    Reiki

                            The appearance of cellulite is a common skin flaw that looks like dimpled skin or small lumps. The specific etiology of cellulite is uncertain, but it typically forms when the connective tissue in the epidermal skin surface combines with the fatty tissue underneath it.
