Here at Mountain Wellness we are in love with cupping. It is an alternative way to destress, detox and kickstart your system.
The History of Cupping Therapy
Cupping therapy has been around for years . It developed over time from the original use of hollowed out animal horns (the horn method) . Into bamboo cups and eventually replaced by glass and silicone. The True origin of cupping still remains uncertain to this day. Some of the earliest pictorial records date back to the Egyptians around 1500BC . Translations of the oldest medical textbook, detail the use of cupping for treating fever, pain and vertigo. Cupping is a powerful healing treatment.
What the treatment does.
By applying suction (or an area of low pressure) to specific meridians/acupressure points, it mobilizes stagnant bloodflow to help aid and promote healing.
Latest studies show that cupping treatment is proven to help back pain, knee pain and neck pain too.
Lots of well know celebrities have been seen with cupping marks, cupping has become a new go to treatment. Even though it been around for a long time. We see people more and more with cupping marks. Just the other day I was in the car following a cyclist around the mountain and you could see he had some work done on his shoulders.
People seem to be worried and its been mentioned in the press alot about the marks left after a cupping treatment. 1st thing you have to know is that, they are not bruises. The marks result from dredging stagnation from within bodily tissue, up closer to the surface of the skin. Helping to restore flow of energy and blood to the areas treated . Marks can last 3 days to 1 week. Also when you touch the marked area you have no pain so it doesnt feel like a bruise at all. Plus you can see what exactly your areas of concern are. You will be amazed at what the cupping treatment can pick up.
We have noticed not only amazing results with pain management but also as a fantastic anti cellulite treatment.
Im sure like many people you have tried the lastest in technology and anticelluite creams. I have tried most on the market and have done most more advanced techniques using machines. Whilst the results with those techniques are great. Cupping whilst not pain free (the more cellulite you have the more it can be slightly unconfortable although this lessens as time goes by and the more treatments you have) has amazing results in really breaking down and helping too remove the toxins from stubbon fat deposit areas. Whilst exercersice and eating correctly is of course necessary, we have started to do courses here to help kick start your system and detox any areas you may need some help with.
