same movements, techniques and protocols in Massage Cupping are
incorporated into the electric, mechanized machine method.
This is using a portable unit that plugs into the wall outlet
and is very compatible with the medical field services.
Trained cupping practioners may address pathologies such as
pre and post operative conditions, scar tissue, lymphatic/edema
conditions, and pain management concerns in muscular-joint areas.
These efficient vacuum therapies can be used in spas, facial,
massage and bodywork centers, in addition to sport, wellness or
specialty clinics. The breast pump has best a well known modality
in the West for decades.
Ever wonder about our body's exposure to illness, injury, toxicity,
surgery, or (chronic) stressors ? How about exposures from
the environment (places, people) that may reside or be partially
"present" in cells or tissue ? Our bodies may have wrapped
up a cyst or tumor in joints or soft organs to essentially protect
us from circulating this pathogen. Bodies will store, sometimes
deeply, what we can't eliminate.
So, no wonder the end result is an accumulation of cellular waste,
partial medication breakdown, inflammatory agents, increased acids,
fungus, bacteria parasites, yeast, and so on pooling in our ever
slower lymph system. This helps explain our profound sensitivity
to touch in some areas. Waste is painful.
Degeneration in younger ages is more prevalent (diabetes, cancer,
auto -immune, asthma, etc) and ordinarily healthy people become
quickly fatigued and bloated out of shape. Being in a state
of inflammation combined with erratic or poor lifestyle choices,
the water in our body is simply "fried" out. This can
lead to a horrible tailspin for some who have been predisposed
by birth or genetics. All systems try to compensate for this downward
spiral, leading to an accommodation phase, and then eventually
succumb to atrophy of a gland or organ. Circulation and flow are
crucial to turning most symptoms around. This
is why physical activity is suggested for the bed bound, those
using wheelchairs and individuals with limited mobility.
Having a powerful tool, such as the electric vacuum, offers
radical changes for the following: non-ambulatory, those under
going cancer radiation or chemotherapy, or needing greater water
absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated
tissue. Clearing this congested soft tissue as early as possible
produces an increase in function and a huge catalyst for over
turning challenges without controversial medications or extreme
The cupping technician uses the various glass or plastic cups
to feel and in a sense "read" tension, tightness, glitches,
adhesions, and other fibrotic issues in the muscles and fascia.
The pressure can be adjusted into six different modes of suction
and release. Electric vacuuming can produce for some, significant
changes such as "tasting" anesthesia or old blood from
distant/remote surgery, or "re-smelling" second hand
smoke as a child with asthma, even forty years later this material
can be resurfaced for a more complete elimination. Some experience
visual memories, twinges, and emotional activation as old files
are stirred upward.
My background as a relationship psychotherapist (MFT) has assisted
many through the energy aspect of trauma, shock or other injuries.
After a few sessions, the tissues can more readily absorb water
(this means drinking enough too) thus keeping itself in a moist
state, lubricated to deliver vital nutrients. Waste is then quickly
transiting out of the body, not putrefying or polluting fragile
networks. A quality client's value is that this method lifts-
without force. Although it is a sensitive process to re-visit
a deep, painful scar or long-standing injury, perhaps even loaded
with emotional baggage, the end result is worth it!
