Have you heard of body cupping? This is one of my favourite treatments to perform but often, people don’t know very much about it. Here, I’m going to share everything you need to know, including how you could benefit from body cupping. I hope you find it useful.
What is cupping therapy?
Cupping therapy is a form of alternative medicine in which cups are placed on the skin to create suction in order to increase blood flow, reduce inflammation and activate lymphatic drainage.
The treatment dates back to ancient Egypt, Asia and Middle East. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area, improves circulation and is widely used to treat pain, digestive problems, release toxins, improve the appearance of cellulite, and much more!
How does cupping feel? Will it cause bruising?
Most individuals find cupping massage very relaxing resulting in muscle tension and pain relief. Cupping is generally not painful, but depending on individual sensitivity and the intensity of the massage, it may be relaxing or you may experience a moderate discomfort.
The movement of the cup mimics the rolling action of deep tissue massage, where the cupping treatment creates reverse or “negative” pressure by pulling the skin upwards. Redness of just-massaged skin and a feeling of warmth is an indication of increased healthy blood flow to the treated area.
If you opt for the stationary massage cupping technique, you may notice round marks or slight bruising in the shape of your cups, commonly referred to as a “hickey”. These marks are an indication that toxins and stagnation were pulled to the surface of the body, restoring flow of energy and healthy blood flow. The marks are temporary and will fade within a few days.
When can I expect to see results? Impress me!
In many cases, results are visible after only a few cupping treatments, though you will start feeling and looking better instantly! With regular use, you will experience muscle tension relaxation, rejuvenation, increased energy, firmness . Would you like to try it?#sandsofsiwa #dubaibeauty #dubaiblogger #dubaibeautyblogger
