Cellulite occurs due to poor blood circulation, capillary and lymphatic clogs, and buildup of toxins in the body. Some people simply have more fat cells, weak veins, fragile lymphatic vessels, poor circulation or hormonal sensitivity. As a result, body tissue becomes weak and under nourished, and toxins trap themselves in and around fat cells, particularly in the subcutaneous layer. A suction cup is place on the hip or thigh area with cellulite cream or massage oil. After about five treatments depending on the severity of the cellulite, results in restoration of skin compactness in problem areas of the body can be seen. A light suction provides drainage, while heavier application can be used to stimulate circulation and loosen adhesions or “dimpling.” Due to the osmotic nature of the body, cupping pulls toxins out of the skin as it moves and drains the lymph.
- detoxifies the body and improves lymphatic drainage.
- bring hydration and blood flow to the targeted tissue.
- removes swelling and restores skin compactness in problem areas of the body.
- creates a flow of fresh oxygenated blood that rich in natural nutrients thus stimulating tissue in that area.
- activates skin, veins, arteries and capillaries.
- relaxes fibrous connective cords.
Clients will notice some bruising and slight initial swelling to the treated area and it can become very uncomfortable at the beginning of the session as the process of breaking down the impacted tissue occurs.
As the treatment progresses, the extreme discomfort becomes tolerable and that’s a sure indication the fat and cellulite tissue is softening.
Please inform your practitioner if you have pace-makers, thrombocytopenia, haemophilia, pregnancy, anaemia, active tuberculosis, are menstruating or bleeding out of menstruation due dismenorrehea, have had vomitting or diarrhoea the previous three days, are fatigued due to strenuous work or stress. Cupping will not be done where there is deep vein thrombosis, ulcers, arteries, or where a pulse that can be felt nor on abdominal or sacral regions of pregnant women.
Cancer patients will only receive cupping therapy only if recommeded by their physician who knows the patient’s history. In general, if you suffer from a debilitating disease that needs immediate attention, do not subject yourself to any alternative treatment forms, including cupping, as the sole form of treatment.
