The benefits of Cupping
Together with all the ones listed for massage, the benefits are numerous and clients benefit enormously noticing and feeling changes on many levels. The suction effect generated by cupping therapy can result in passive congestion of local skin tissue and thus contribute to the promotion of tissue circulation so as to enhance the metabolism. Cupping therapy can stimulate the reflex of the nervous system to the cerebral cortex, contributing further to an increased rate of recovery from disease.
The patient can experiences immediate changes in stiffness, pain and mobility.
How does it work?
By creating suction, cupping is used to;
Drain excess fluids and toxins,
Loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue,
Bring blood flow to stagnant muscles and skin.
Cupping generally improves blood and Qi flow in any ‘congested’ area of the body where it is used.
Cupping naturally draws blood to the external capillaries of the body and as a result minor welts or discolouration may be left after a treatment.
How frequent will your treatment be?
Two or three treatments, at weekly intervals, are often sufficient to achieve lasting relief from even long standing pain, although further treatments may sometimes be required.
