Cupping Therapy

Cupping is one of the ancient treatment methods in which a vacuumed cup is placed onto an affected area for treatment purposes.  This treatment is predominantly used to disperse stagnation, detox the body and expel pathogenic factors from the surface layers of the body to promote the circulation of the blood and Qi.  
The mechanism is that the suction makes opposite pressure on the surface of the skin and increases blood flow to the inside cup areas and stimulates muscle tissues.  The suction works to relax the stiff muscle and soft tissue and promotes general well-being. It has been found to affect the body up to 4 inches into the tissues, causing tissues to releases toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockage, help activate and clear veins arteries and capillaries, stimulate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve blood circulation.  People feel relaxed and warm with a tingling sensation during the cupping treatment.
In my practice, I practice Cupping Therapy to mainly help with releasing muscular aches and pains on the foot and calf and help towards fertility. I also practice massage cupping on the neck and shoulders which is very popular.
A very popular treatment is Postnatal Abdominal Honey Cupping Massage to help you go back into shape and reducing the stretch marks after giving birth.  Honey is known for his healing qualities and is extremely good for the skin.  
I practice Facial Cupping to give a wonderful glow and release facial stress.
I only practice air cupping and silicone cupping, I do not use fire and heat (despite being fully proficient). 
Cupping Therapy is considered relatively safe.  It may cause some swelling and discoloration which is normal after the cupping; a small round circle left after cupping treatment is not bruising caused by cupping; but because the suction has drawn up the blood vessels on to the surface of the skin as they are expanded.   These marks or discoloration occur when the process has drawn pathologic factors to the skin's surface.  For there, these marks rapidly fade away generally few days later. This coloration is mainly prominent when practiced on the back.  Massage cupping does not live any bruising.
