Over the years, cupping therapy has become very popular as more and more people are trying it out. There are those who use it mainly for cellulite and weight reduction. This is a method that most celebrities are quickly embracing and trying out often showing of their cupping marks. The best thing about cupping is the fact that it is non-invasive and it is therefore a good choice for anyone who doesn’t want to go the surgery way.
At present, cupping therapy is carried out using medical grade silicone or glass cups that are pushed on the skin so as to create suction. The main thing is to guide the cup on the area targeted and work on it for around 5 minutes and repeat the same every day for a couple of weeks.
There are lots of cellulite cup sets that one can choose from today. They prove to be quite reliable in the removal of cellulite, especially when they are used as they should.
When the traditional glass cups are used, then there is a need to introduce heat within the cups done by the insertion of heat into the glass such as alcohol, herbs or cotton wool. When the cups have been heated, the objects have to be removed and then the cup inverted on the areas on the body of the patient so as to create some suction which is caused by the heat.
What causes cellulite?
Cellulite occurs due to genetic conditions that cause the body to retain fluids. It can also be caused a lymphatic drainage system that is inefficient, poor circulation of blood and imbalances in the hormones. This leads to the development of fat cells that lay just below the skin and then the conversion into cellulite. The cellulite, then causes cords that connect to one’s skin as well as the muscles that are below and this leads to an appearance that is dimpled and ungainly. When you get the orange peel kind of look on the skin, then that is a clear sign that you have cellulite.
How therapy works
After the application of suction on one’s skin, there is reverse pressure, which leads to the breakup of cellulite. The circulation of blood is then stimulated and then the toxins and fats are released into the drainage network of the lymph nodes. The cupping therapy also promotes drainage and that means that toxins quickly move from the body. The cupping eases cords that connect the muscle and the skin. This essentially reduces fluid buildup and this facilitates development of cells that are free of cellulite. This leads to a very healthy appearance.
For spot reduction
Usually, conventional methods for weight loss are not effective even when targeted on some specific areas of the body. However, cupping helps in the reduction of spots on the skin. Treatment can aid in the removal of flabby inner thighs, saddlebags, and sagging buttocks and so on. You only need to have the cups applied on the areas of the body that need some attention.
