Pareen Corner – Reduce Pain, Improve Wellness with Cupping
Cupping therapy is one of the oldest methods of releasing the toxins from body tissue and has been used for thousands of years to ease back pain, neck pain, headaches and other problems.
Cupping involves creating a suction force to the skin which produces enhanced blood flow and draws impurities and toxins away from the nearby tissues as it draws fluid into the treated area thus sending more blood to the area to stimulate and enhance the natural healing process.
Think about it: when your body is stressed from repetitive movements, exercise, emotions, or even from being stuck in one position for a long period of time …like working from home, your blood vessels and muscles constrict which leads to pain (tension, soreness, stiffness, etc.). With cupping therapy, the lifting of the skin enhances blood flow in muscles that are tight, painful and restricted by creating space for old, oxygen-depleted blood to leave so that fresh oxygen-rich blood can enter.
How is cupping performed?
There are different ways to perform cupping. The steps vary slightly depending on the chosen method. Depending on the treatment, your provider may place multiple cups on your skin leaving the cups in place for several minutes. Some treatments involve briefly moving the cups to stretch and massage the area.
At Sanctuary Salon & Med Spa, we use the Dry Cupping method which involves heating the inside of each cup. The heat sends oxygen out of the cup, creating a vacuum. Once placed on your skin, the vacuum force pulls the skin up into the cup to produce enhanced blood flow.
What does cupping treat?
People mostly use cupping to relieve conditions that cause pain. Some people say it also helps with chronic (ongoing) health issues. Cupping may ease symptoms of:
- Arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis
- Back pain, neck pain, knee pain and shoulder pain
- Breathing problems, such as asthma
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Headaches and migraines
Safe and non-invasive cupping reduces pain& inflammation, improves blood flow, helps facilitate the healing process and strengthens the immune system providing overall wellness and well-being.
