Fascia Release Cupping & Gua Sha

What is Fascia Release Cupping?

fire cupping

In alternative medicine, pain is believed to be caused by imbalance in energy and blood flow.  This can be related to stress in the body, imbalances of hormones and fluids, lack of blood flow, and temperature in the muscles and joints. When a cup is placed on or around a problem area, the pull of the cup creates warmth and circulation in the area.  As soon as we release the cups, the pain is reduced.

Fire Cupping is the method of using glass cups to create localized circulation by a vacuum, and forcing blood and lymph flow where the area is blocked or deficient.  This vacuum effect causes the blood to flow to the area in need of help and healing.

“After 2 sessions of acupressure, acupuncture and cupping, I felt like I was a child again. All of my muscles were relaxed and I was back in the gym in no time! I would highly recommend using them for preventative maintenance, stress and pain relief. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!” – S.N. Dublin, CA

How and Why does Cupping work?TShencupping2

The lymphatic system, which is closely linked with the immune system, helps to clear the body of harmful metabolic waste products, foreign material, and cell debris. Every cell in our body release metabolic waste products and takes up nutrients from a surrounding solution called the extracellular fluid.

Cellular nourishment and efficiency depends on how fast and how well waste material is removed from the extracellular fluid. The meridians are one of several pathways toxins can be released from the extracellular fluid to exit the body. Capillaries and lymphatic channels will also pick up toxins and carry them to the liver and kidneys, where they will be detoxified and/or excreted. And much, much more!
