We are happy to say we are introducing another natural healing therapy to our Empowering Wellness Centre at Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast.
Chinese Cupping is an ancient technique used in Chinese Medicine to encourage the blood flow.
How does it work?
By encouraging blood flow to certain parts of the body, Cupping helps with the following conditions:
- loosen tighten muscles
- relieve pain
- reduce anxiety, fatigue and stress
- decrease de effects of migraines
- reduce inflammation
- improve well-being.
Cupping also helps with respiratory diseases such as common cold, pneumonia and bronchitis, by increasing the ‘chi’ or energy flow.
The therapist will place special cups on top of the skin and apply suction. The cups will stay on in between 3 to 10min. The colouring typically ranges from bright red to darker purple, and can last from 3 to 10 days.
The body speaking through colour
The colour appearing can also be an indicator or provide a diagnosis, since a darker colouring appearing in the skin will mean that there is a higher level of toxins and stagnation in that area. From this information, further treatments can be recommended. Sometimes the combination of Cupping with Chiropractic care can be the perfect combo the body is asking for. Therefore Cupping can be a great way of interpreting the wise body’s language.
Cupping for detoxification of the blood
Cupping is also used gliding on the skin to loosen the fascia, connective tissues, soothing the nervous system and flushing the lymph.
Cupping Therapy is a great way to accelerate the healing of injuries and detox the blood.
