When should I use cupping?
Cupping supports, compliments and enhances other therapeutic methods. It can also be used as a separate, segmental and even systemic therapy.
It is incorporated into holistic treatments when the bodies natural healing powers are compromised or overwhelmed and no longer able to heal on their own.
And as we know, health and beauty deterioration sets in when congestion and accumulation of un-eliminated waist products obstruct the circulation of fluids and communications of our nervous systems.
What does cupping actually do?
Cupping serves to widen blood capillaries, stimulate local metabolic processes, and aid in decongestion and circulation. The application of cups plays a major role in connective tissue relaxation which helps to relieve pressure on the nerves and diminish swelling, pain, and discomfort.
As an added benefit, one can also use cupping to tighten skin, reduce cellulite and unwanted bulges throughout the body.
We are even able to diagnose certain problems with internal organs by observing changes in the appearance of the skin when the cups have been applied. Diseased organs through peripheral nerves initiate and convey changes to color, texture, and temperatures. In some instances, pain and atrophy in corresponding areas of the skin can be significant.
