CUPPING 

TREATMENT

Cupping is used to extract excess oils and toxins from muscle tissue whilst stretching fascia
and taut muscle fibres.
This type of therapy can utilise most soft tissue techniques in combination with the plastic /
glass cups to reach the desired state of relaxation.
Bruising and marking of the skin and dermis is believed in chinese medicine to be very normal and beneficial. This can release muscle toxicidity, promote blood circulation, promote circulation of lymph and lengthen muscle tissue.
Benefits of Cupping:
The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even reduce cellulite.
What should I expect with cupping?
For weight loss and cellulite treatments, oil is first applied to the skin, and then the
cups are moved up and down the surrounding area.

Cupping can stand alone as an independant treatment or like acupuncture can follow the lines of the meridians. There are five meridian lines on the back, and these are where the cups are usually placed. Using these points, cupping can help to align and relax qi, as well as target more specific maladies.  By targeting the meridian channels, cupping strives to 'open' these channels - the paths through which life energy flows freely throughout the body, through all tissues and organs, thus providing a smoother and more free-flowing

Qi = (life force).

Cupping is a highly effective therapy used to free the deeper layers of the body and Toxic fluids which can be blocked.  Veins and arteries can be refreshed within these deeper layers.

In my practice I use "cold cupping". The suction cups are placed on the skin and pumped with a hand pump causing an under pressure to the skin, small blood vessels and lymphatic system.  This mobilizes the body's defences to eliminate disease or pain or relieve in long term.

Cupping massage is very useful for back pain and as an accompanying measure against cellulite and fat belly.  Cups are placed on the skin, in which a under pressure is created, then the jars are pushed back and forth. In this way, both the blood flow to the effected tissue and the lymph flow is stimulated.

Not recommended is cupping by acute injuries, near varicose veins in skin rashes, heart disease and circulatory problems, such as when taking blood thinners, Warfarin and aspirin.

Note: This style of massage is clinical and not used for relaxation.

Cupping is not recommended for those with acute injuries, varicose veins, skin rashes, heart disease and circulatory problems needing blood thinners, Warfarin and aspirin.
