An Age Old Alternative Still Making its Mark after 3,000 + Years
Through negative pressure, medicupping is used to drain excess fluids, stimulate the peripheral nervous system, bringing blood flow to stagnant muscles and skin, and loosen adhesions, connective tissue and stubborn knots in soft tissue.
When tissues are tight they accumulate stagnant fluids, (waste byproducts, blood and lymph) do to constriction. As these are dredged up to the surface during treatment they are easily flushed from the body and this is enhanced by the increased circulation to the area.
Medicupping is a comfortable and effective way to remove debris and accumulation of fluids from sites of strain, sprain and surgeries. Patients who have had axillary lymph node removal benefit greatly from cupping, re-directing and dispersing the excess congestion.
Medicupping is an incredibly successful way to assist those who are losing weight. Cellulite is fat that is deposited in pockets just below the surface of the skin. Collagen fibers that connect fat to skin may stretch, break down, or pull tight, allowing the fat cells to bulge out. This creates the rippled look of cellulite. Medicupping helps loosen and separate, allowing blood and nutrients to reach the cells and old wastes to be purged.
Medicupping therapy utilizes a machine with glass cups to create suction on the body surface. A unique quality is the “lifting without force.” Even when working on deep scars and adhesions, fibrous tissue, or fascia that has retained memory from the incident or injury, the technique is comfortable and works very quickly.
The expulsion of toxins and the cleansing affect to the lymphatic system affects the entire body’s health. Medicupping is used to refine skin pore, improve micro-circulation, enhance collagen elasticity, enhance muscle tissue elasticity and fiber, stretches fascia, and resume breast elasticity and softness.
These techniques are used safely on children, adults and elderly persons.
