Originating from traditional Chinese medicine, cupping therapy has been used for thousands of years to promote healing and provide an alternative treatment for pain relief. In its original form, the fire created a vacuum seal in glass cups to apply negative pressure to various body parts.
Renata’s Organic Skincare offers a more versatile and modernized cupping therapy that utilizes flexible, medical-grade silicone or rubber cups and therapeutic, plant-based massage oils. The squeezable nature of the cups allows various suction depths to create the same vacuum seal used in traditional cupping therapy but enables the cups to be moved once placed. During your massage, the cups can either be left in one spot for a more targeted therapy or glided over the skin to provide a deep massage-like sensation.
Cupping therapy uses negative pressure to summon fresh blood to localized areas, mimicking our bodies’ natural inflammatory response. When this happens, oxygen-rich red blood cells, healing proteins, and white blood cells are pulled into the area to combat inflammation and promote healing.
When scientists reviewed over one hundred studies on cupping therapy, they found evidence that it helped alleviate chronic pain and inflammation (especially of the neck and back) and nerve pain. It’s also important to note that our lymphatic system –– a significant component of our immune system, responsible for filtering out damaged cells, pathogens, and more –– requires a little extra effort to ensure it functions at its best.
Unlike our circulatory system, our lymphatic system is pump-less and is thus dependent on the movement and contraction of our muscles and joints. Cupping therapy supports our immune system by acting as an alternative mechanism to get your lymphatic system moving.
