Cupping

 

Cupping is a traditional, time-honored treatment dating back thousands of years and favored by millions worldwide because it’s safe, comfortable and remarkable effective for many health disorders.  Rather than compression, a technique commonly used in massage therapy, cupping uses suction for bodywork ranging from myofacial release to lymphatic drainage – and everything in between!     Cupping rapidly facilitates rigid soft tissue release, loosens and lifts connective tissues, breaks up and drains stagnation and  increases blood & lymph flow to skin and muscles in ways not possible using compression.

CUPPING FEELS GREAT!  The pulling action engages the parasympathetic nervous system, thus allowing a deep relaxation to move through the entire body.  It is not unusual to fall asleep when receiving this treatment.  People are often surprised at how relaxed, warn and light they feel – hours – even days afterwards.

Cupping causes tissues to release toxins, stimulate the lymphatic system, improve the skin and circulatory systems, reduce stretch marks and improve varicose veins.  On the deeper level, Cupping is beneficial for many conditions including asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, anxiety, fatigue, headaches, fibromyalgia and neuralgia, and all sorts of digestive and bowel concerns.

Cupping is a powerful and effective tool that when  properly used, achieves excellent results for a broad range of disorders. When choosing a therapist, make sure they are a licensed professional and certified in Cupping Therapy in order to ensure a safe and effective treatment.

Facial Cupping: Woman in Asia, Europe,  & Russia have been using facial cupping for lifting and rejuvenation for generations. Specially designed facial cups lift and tone the delicate facial muscles while stimulating lymphatic drainage.

Benefits include:

  • Increased local circulation of the skin
  • Increased nutrients brought to the epidermis
  • Enhanced absorption of treatment creams
  • Drainage of stagnant fluids from congested areas reducing chronic puffiness
  • Reduce discolorations of the complexion and dark circles in the eye area

The Results?  A single treatment shows impressive results and continued treatments are cumulative.  Lines and wrinkles will plump whereas scar tissue will soften, making cupping an exceptionally powerful and surprising relaxing facial treatment. In addition, cupped muscles of the face benefit greatly from the reduction of tension and tightness, releasing expression lines and loosening ridged muscles associated with TMJ disorders.  Sinus infections and inflammation are also directly relieved by the loosening and draining effects of the cups – many times resolving issues that many suffers commonly turned to more radical procedures to correct.
