WHAT IS CUPPING?

Cupping therapy is an ancient technique with the purpose to promote health and healing by loosening soft tissue and connective tissue, scarring and increasing circulation.  This therapy utilizes SILICONE, GLASS OR PLASTIC CUPS and a vacuum pistol to create suction on the body surface.  These cups are moved over the skin using gliding, shaking, popping and rotating techniques while gently pulling up on the cup, or may be parked for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. 

COMMON USES FOR CUPPING THERAPY
  • Muscle Tightness: tension and pain (loosens knots and deep tissue blockages)

  • Digestive System: diarrhea, constipation, indigestion, vomiting

  • Respiratory System: common cold, cough, asthma

  • Gynecological Issues: absent periods, irregular periods, infertility

  • Lymph Drainage: helps to drain and clear lymph nodes

  • Boosts Skin Health: tones and firms skin

WHAT'S UP WITH THE BRUISING?

Cupping causes a separation between your skin and muscles, allowing increased blood flow to that area and brings your bodies toxins to the surface to be excreted.  The bruise is not caused by any trauma to your skin, there will be NO RESIDUAL PAIN, however, a MARK (BRUISE) can remain.

 

The colouring of the bruise depends on the level of toxins in your body.  It will be a darker color if there is a high level of toxins in your body and generally after repeated sessions the color does fade.  The marks usually last from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. 

 

The practitioner will help massage the area after treatment to assist with the healing.  It is important to drink plenty of water after your session to help flush out the excess toxins.

Just had an amazing cupping session with Kelly! She used the silicone and vacuum cupping and I loved it! Seriously if you have any tight muscles or just want a good wellness treatment, then I recommend cupping. Thanks Kelly! I’ll be back
