Short about cupping

A cupping treatment feels sort of like a firm massage. As a result of the vacuum created by the cup, the skin is partly sucked into it, which draws blood to the treated area. That improves the perfusion of the fascial network and helps the body dispose waste faster through the pores. Which in turn increases blood circulation, activates the lymphatic system and reduces stagnation. It also reaches the deeper layers of skin, stimulating relaxation and restoring balance in the body.

Regular cupping ensures a flexible and healthy fascial network. During the treatment, a few red spots may emerge at the treated area. This is normal and they will disappear after a few days. Also, you can experience some discomfort during the first treatment due to tissue tension but that will gradually decrease as your body adjusts to the treatment.

General guidelines
for all programs

  • Move the cup slowly.
  • Squeeze cup more firmly or gently to adjust the degree of suction.
  • If experience discomfort, move up wards and skip down wards movement. Start at the bottom again, repeating the movement.
  • If bruised easily, reduce the suction and don’t let the cup stay on for too long.
  • For dynamic use, use oil or shower gel for better slip.
  • If the cup doesn’t attach, place it more gently on the skin and squeeze it slower or add some lubricant.
  • Recommended use: 2-3 times a week.
  • Number of strokes: recommended 2-3 at each area. If needed, increase the number of strokes gradually, allowing the body to adjust and respond.
  • Dynamic use: 5-20 min as maximum per total session.
  • If a beginner, use it for no more than 1 minute. Extend the time as you get more used to it.
  • Doing a program before a physical activity can enhance performance, as it increase the contact with the muscles involved.
  • Doing a program after activity can diminish soreness and stiffness and increase your ability to restore.

Active programs

Runner’s high

This session offers a great release after a good run or cardio and supports a healthy and sustainable running routine. Do it as a pre-run and prepare your body by releasing tension and increase circulation. Enjoy a lighter step, a sense of strength and better contact with the leg muscles and the ground underneath you. Or use it as a post-run, since it is the perfect practice to cool down and speed up your recovery as lactic acids will get assistance by increased flow through the lymphatic system. This helps to build stamina, diminish soreness, stiffness and hopefully keep you injury free. You will feel at ease and ready to go running again in no time.

Not a runner? This is for you too. It’s a perfect session for keeping the lower body strong and flexible.

Agility, stability and responsive muscles are all important qualities for a great skier. This session helps you maximize your skiing and fasten your recovery by improving the nutrition and blood supply. After a few days of skiing, it is easy to make mistakes as tired muscles don’t respond as well. This will help your body to fasten its recovery, get rid of waste products, make the muscles respond better and improve the agility and the fine motor skills.

Office break

This is a great routine if you have a sedentary job or are suffering from back pain and stiff shoulders. Ever heard that ”sitting is the new smoking”? Sitting too much creates fuzz in the connective tissue since the lymphatic system doesn’t get activated and therefor doesn’t flush out waste products. It can also make the connective tissue thicker which will effect mobility and cause stiffness. This session will help your connective tissue by increasing the blood and lymphatic flow and get stagnant energy moving again. You can do it basically anywhere – while working or seated in the couch at home.

Let’s enjoy a cupping break.

Skin for the win

(for various body parts)

The skin is our largest organ, containing fluid, blood, blood vessels, connective tissue and rich nerve supplies. As well as the body’s first direct contact with the outside world. Many says that the skin is the mirror of our overall health.
This session is designed to activate the lymphatic system which can be very beneficial for those suffering from cellulites. Cellulites is often a result of poor lymphatic flow and stagnation of liquids beneath the skin.

Use this session to find peace, check-in with yourself, and welcome a little inner heat to get stagnant energy moving again and nourishing the systems of your body.
