What It Is
Cupping pulls stagnation out of the tissues and brings it to the skin level. The pores expand discharging some of these wastes and toxins. The rest is then more accessible to the body’s circulatory and lymphatic system where it can be properly flushed out. It also brings fresh revitalized blood to the stagnant areas.
Cupping involves negative pressure. Massage is tissue compression as it pushes down into the tissue. Cupping pulls the tissue up and out, assisting in the release of cramped tight muscles, increasing space for the underlying structures. Negative pressure therapy (cupping) is therefore superior bodywork ranging from Myofascial Release to Manual Lymphatic Drainage. Suction cupping rapidly loosens rigid soft tissue release by pulling it up and away, thus loosening areas of adhesion or restriction.
Another benefit of cupping is the release of joint stiffness in ways not possible with the pressure of traditional massage, and in only minutes! Chronic gastrointestinal disorders and the digestive system as a whole are remarkably impacted by cupping therapy. The pulling power stimulates the inside of the organs, their peristaltic movement, and strengthens digestion and nutrient absorption.
Extensively used for asthma and pneumonia, the respiratory system responds well, easing labored breathing. Pain relief is quick, long-term injuries and restrictions can be released in one or a few sessions, while scar tissue softens and restructuring of the fascia can occur.
Cupping Therapy has shown very beneficial for many conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, sciatica, insomnia, tension, chronic disorders, anxiety, fatigue, poor circulation, edema, sports injuries, cellulite, nervous tension, chronic headache, fibromyalgia, rheumatism, neuralgia, and menstrual problems. It is suitable for pain relief, diseases of the difestive, circulatory and respiratory systems, some skin conditions, facial paralysis, weak muscles and the common cold.
While best results happen with cumulative therapy, immediate results are not uncommon.
Expands the blood vessels of the skin, causing an increase of:
Functioning of sweat and sebaceous glands
Nutrition supply to the tissues
Withdraws stagnant blood from skin and removes poisons.
Accelerates the secretion of salts, sebaceous matter and the exretion of water.
Strengthens the renewing power of the skin and its resistance to various external conditions.
Benefit To Your Muscles
Stimulation of the subcutaneous capillary vessels activates and expands the blood vessels within the muscles.
This action increases blood flow and removes congestion in joints, attachments and other various musculoskeletal structures.
Suction facilitates the exceretion of lactic acids and toxins from within the muscles and its surrounding support.
Post cupped muscles maintain increased temperature and fluid facilitation for much longer than with traditional therapy.
Beneficial Effects on Your Circulatory System
One principal of the healing effects that derives from Cupping is in the cleansing of the blood. Cleaning the blood improves circulation-good circulation is paramount to optimal health.
Cupping dramatically improves circulation of blood and lymph making metabolic processes more active within minutes, and cumulative with continued TX’s.
Cupping cleans the body’s Cardiovascular System so disease doesn’t have a chance to develop. Where disease already exists, Cupping cleans the system to so it can better fight and recover from the disease.
Purifies the blood by removing dead debris, increasing red and white blood cell activity, and altering the PH chemistry of the body fluids from acidic to alkaline or neutral.
Abnormal systolic pressure normalizes and pulse rate returns back to normal.
It is very beneficial for hardened arteries by gently stretching and breaking up the micro adhesions that contribute to the rigidity of the arterial walls.
Effects on the Nervous System
The pulling gentle action stimulates the sensory nerves of the skin.
The reduction of hypersensitive pain affects the areas of direct application as well as the area the relevant nerves effect.
Treatments of the posterior central line (paraspinal nerves) and the sympathetic nerves beside the central line have a powerful effect on both the autonomic nervous system and the various organs under its control.
Effective against general malaise, depression, headaches, anxiety, body pain. fatigue as well as endogenous chronic diseases like high blood pressure, neuralgia, and rheumatism.
Effects on the Digestive System
The stretching actions on the abdominal regions:
Stimulates the inside and walls of the digestive organs
Stimulates secretion of digestive fluids
Strengthening overall digestion
Elevating the uptake and absorption of nutrients
Increasing digestive fluids
Overall excellent effects upon chronic gastrointestinal disorders and the constitution as a whole.
The digestive system is affected even during back treatments by stimulating the spinal and autonomic nervous systems.
Effects on the Joints
Chronic and stubborn joint conditions are resolved most effectively with Negative Pressure Therapy.
The stretching and pulling of the connective structures allow a much greater range of movement, along with the opening up of the joint capsule to loosen and release stagnation which compounds the general compaction and stiffness often associated with stubborn and orthopedic conditions.
Disorganized fascia structures can be directly restructured to further support the healing process.
Increases blood and lymph activity within the joint as well as stimulating activity and the secretion of synovial fluids.
