Detoxification, or detox, helps to cleanse our bodies of any toxins we may have in our system. When the blood cleanses itself, toxins are removed from the body by the skin, liver, kidneys, and intestines. Cupping therapy helps speeding up this natural detoxification process.
Cupping is a therapy that originated in China. This therapy is based on the theory that our bodies remain healthy as long as our chi, the energy flowing in the body, remains constant. Injury can cause the energy and blood circulation in the body to become stagnant. If blood does not circulate properly, toxins build up inside the body. Toxins include impurities, pathogenic elements, and broken down or worn out cell debris. The buildup can cause illness in the body, but detoxification though cupping can help remove these toxins.
Transformational Cupping therapy uses cups of different sizes that are designed to suction to the skin on specific areas of the body. As suction is created between the cup and skin tissue, the toxins inside the inner layer of tissue and muscle are pulled outward. As the impurities accumulate underneath the skin, it changes color. Fresh blood and lymph rush to the area and bring nutrients and oxygen to the affected site. This process heals damaged cells and causes the body to feel rejuvenated and refreshed. The blood and lymph carry away any toxins to the skin, kidneys, liver, intestines, and lungs to be expelled naturally.
