Now introducing love cups at Indigo Healing Acupuncture!
Traditional Chinese Fire Cupping is a relaxing treatment to remove stagnation and improve the flow of Qi and blood. Glass or ceramic cups are heated with fire to create a vacuum and applied to the skin to create suction.
Fire Cupping is pain-free and typically leaves painless circular marks that gradually disappear within 3-5 days as healing occurs.
I tell patients it feels like a reverse massage… instead of muscle compression via pressure, the cups pull up the skin which allows fascia and muscle fibers to lift & stretch.
Fire Cupping also supports the function of the lymphatic system by improving the flow of infection-fighting lymph fluid which helps rid the body of toxins and metabolic waste.
After a treatment with Traditional Chinese fire cupping, it's important to drink water and non-caffeinated beverages so the lymphatic system can work its magic.
