Cupping is an ancient Chinese medicine therapy that involves applying cups to the skin by means of suction. The suction is created through negative pressure and creates what is similar to a vacuum seal. This type of therapy can be of benefit in many clinical scenarios.
Cupping therapy is a body work practice that lifts and gently stretches the fascia and underlying muscles. In doing so this also increases the local circulation which facilitates proper nourishment to the affected area or region of concern.
Cupping therapy is very effective to help release muscle tension, pain and overall increases circulation to help support healing and soft tissue repair. While there are many benefits of cupping there are also some side effects of the treatment. Cupping is considered a very safe therapy when practiced by a properly trained practitioner.
Facial cupping is very similar to traditional cupping but the cups in this case are much smaller and fixed cupping does not apply to facial cupping. Facial cupping is more dynamic in nature and helps activate the facial muscles and provides the client with a more youthful and glowing appearance.
Fire cupping is performed similarly to regular cupping but there is an added element of heat. The heat is very therapeutic and provides the ultimate relaxation experience.
Tui Na is a Chinese body massage that is used in conjunction with Acupuncture and other Chinese medicine modalities. The word Tui Na derives from the Chinese language, Tui: means to push and Na: means to grasp. This ancient massage technique also incorporates acupressure within the practice, where the massage techniques are applied to specific acupoints and meridians.
Tui Na is an effective massage technique that activates the parasympathetic nervous system and provides a holistic relaxation experience.
Tui Na is shown to help improve conditions such as:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Menstrual Cramps
- Much More
