Fire Cupping is a traditional medicine healing Therapy. Cupping works to alleviate pain discomfort,tightness, improves range of motion, and aids in detoxification. Glass cups and a flame or silicone cups and pump are used to create suction on the muscles and skin. This increases blood flow (Qi) life energy and manually breaks up fascial (connective tissue) old scar, injury and adhesions.
This technique creates more space between muscle, fascia, and bone. It improves range of motion and reduces pain and discomfort. Old and stagnant blood is flushed out of the tissue and fresh new blood flow infuses the area to promote faster recovery and healing. Cupping feels a bit like a deep tissue massage and most people find it very relaxing for sometime after treatment. The glass cups become warm which stimulates circulation in the energy channels and warms the muscles.
The cups often leave deep purple red or pink marks that can indicate areas of poor circulation and blood stagnation. These marks will fade within 1-5 days.
Areas that take longer to fade indicate less blood flow to those areas and tissues. Cupping marks may be slightly tender for 48 to 72 hours but are not painful. Fire cupping is used primarily for muscular tightness and pain, circulatory dysfunction, stress, and treatment of colds or respiratory symptoms.
Cupping is great for Chronic Upper Back and Lower Back Pain.
Cupping is a form of alternative medicine that does not use the ingestion or use of any medication. The risks that are involved are considerably lower than others, and there are little to no side effects that occur. If you find yourself in pain and have used up all options that generally are used and have opted out of continuing the use of traditional medicine, then Cupping is the solution you are looking for what's causing you pain, and the blood flow begins to increase in that area within the vessels and capillaries which eases the muscles and helps to supply nutrients and new oxygen to that area and that your body sorely needs.
Cupping can target these points of pain accurately and naturally reduce joint and muscle pain. Cupping works to release the tension in the tissue in your body and in doing so can relax these sore muscles, ease neck shoulder, back pain, and relax tired and tense muscles. Cupping is essentially the inverse of the typical massage therapy as Instead of exerting pressure on the different points of the body for healing, the Cupping uses suction to draw the skin, tissues, and muscles upwards forcing fresh blood to reach the areas that have aches and pains and in doing so releases tight and stuck fascia and helps kickstart and quicken the healing process. When the practitioner exerts suction on the different points on the body by way of cupping, certain changes happe inside the body. These changes stimulate the body to heal itself.
The results are:
1. Promoting the flow of blood (Qi) to the muscles and tissues, and removing stagnation.
2. Supplying new oxygen and rich nutrients to the cells.
3. Releasing fascia and softening the tightened muscles.
4. Loosening of old scar tissue, injuries, adhesions and knots.
5. Lifting the fascia and connecting tissues.
6. Opening any blockages of the lymphatic nodes and easing the flow of lymph.
7. Releasing and draining of excess fluids and toxins like lactic acid from the tissues and cells.
8. Drawing inflammation from the deeper tissues to the surface of the skin so they can heal.
9. Stimulating and later, calming the peripheral nervous system.
10. Eliminating chronic congestion
