Massage Cupping is the combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and, depending on the type of cups being used; a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The produced vacuum creates a suction effect that increases blood and lymphatic circulation systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue and support tissues, draws stagnation, pathogenic factors and toxins out of the body and releases a myriad of pain causing factors.
Bio-magnetic Field Therapy uses cups with polarized magnets and are applied in stationary positions on the skin.
From the perspective of bio-magnetics, health is based upon the individual cells of the body vibrating at a characteristic normal frequency. Disease, on the other hand, represents an abnormal change in cellular vibration. The therapeutic application of magnets at the deepest level is based on the principle of restoring normal cellular vibration, positively influencing the relationships throughout the entire body-mind process.
Women in Asia, Russia and Europe have been utilizing these remarkable negative pressure facial exercises for rejuvenation and maintenance for generations.
Protocols for the face use the small cups to vacuum and lift the facial tissue, mimicking the pumping movements of lymphatic drainage. It is a manual method that replicates the effects of equipment currently in use in most of the top aesthetic establishments.
The benefits include increased local circulation of the skin, increased nutrients brought to the epidermis, and enhanced absorption of facial topicals. The drainage of stagnant fluids from reservoir areas will reduce edema and chronic puffiness. Lines and wrinkles will plump whereas scar tissue will soften from the negative pressure, making it an exceptionally powerful and surprisingly relaxing enhancement to advanced facial treatments. The muscles of the face benefit greatly from the reduction of tension and tightness, releasing expression lines and loosening rigid muscles associated with TMJ disorders. Sinus infections and inflammation are also directly relieved by the loosening and draining effects of the cups – many times resolving issues that many sufferers commonly turned to more radical procedures to correct.
The after effects of Cupping are most intense at the beginning of receiving treatments, and lessen dramatically as your system becomes accustomed to the treatments as they accumulate. Besides the effects Cupping provides for specific conditions, injuries and illnesses, some of the general after effects include:
• the need for sleep
• intense hunger (munchies)
• no appetite
• sensation similar to post deep tissue massage
• feelings of being “hung over”
• increased bowel elimination
• stronger body odor (detox)
• “best nights sleep in years”
• inability to sleep
• vivid dreams
• night sweat
• heightened senses (smell, sight, sound)
• craving for certain foods
• thirst and cotton mouth
• emotional release
• stronger than normal bowel & urine odors
• skin surface warmer than normal
• restless (wanting to clean, organize, etc.)
• soreness, like after strenuous exercise
• feeling of reduced mass, increased height
