Cupping comes from Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is used to relieve stagnation of blood and Qi in the channels and to disperse stagnation in the body. In western words; the negative pressure inside the cup creates a massive flooding of blood and body-fluids which delivers nourishment, immune and inflammatory factors to create healing, removes metabolic waste and creates the renewal of tissues. You can think of it as the inverse of Deep Tissue Massage, instead of pushing down on the muscle we are lifting up on it and creating space around it.
Cupping leaves behind small circles of coloring. The coloring of the circles is called Sha. Sha is the expression of metabolic waste in the body, such as lactic acid. The presence of Sha in the body is a confirmation of the obstruction of the flow of Qi and blood. It is a clue of the poor delivery of blood to both nourish and restore the body’s tissue. Sha is different from a bruise because after repeated treatments Sha will eventually stop appearing, which is the goal of this treatment.
Cupping is also an extremely beneficial energy healing technique. We can use the cups to release stagnant energy that is trapped in the physical and energetic bodies. To function at your highest energetic potential it is important to be free of stagnant, stuck and heavy energy that is bogging down your energy field. By release this energy we can release old traumas, programs and stories from your body. This creates space for you to learn who you really are without these things holding you down as well as space for new higher vibration energy to come in.
Some examples of conditions you may want to receive a Cupping treatment for are arthritis pain, headaches, menstrual pain, sore muscles, acute or chronic pain and TMJ. Also cold and flu symptoms, indigestion, bloating and stomachache. Energetically you may want to receive Cupping for low energy, difficulty sleeping, to release emotional patterns and so much more!
