How Cupping Therapy Helps Reduce Cellulite
Cupping therapy is being seen more and more in the media; from celebrities to famous athletes recognizing its healing benefits. You know, those things that Michael Phelps and all of the swimmers were raving about at the Olympics? This type of therapy is most commonly used in weight reduction and removing cellulite, and its deep-tissue, non-invasive method of healing is becoming more increasingly popular. Cupping can enhance circulation in the body, relieve pain, and remove toxins from the body. The coolest thing is, it can greatly improve the appearance of cellulite. (Um, yes please!)
CUPPING THERAPY & HOW IT WORKS
Cupping therapy uses glass or medical-grade silicone cups. The cups are pushed onto the skin, suctions to it, and the person performing the therapy moves the cups across the body. In traditional glass cups, heat is implemented by putting a burning object, such as herbs or alcohol, into the cup. When the cup is hot enough, the objects are removed and the cup is instantly pushed on specific points on the body.
The suction that occurs between the cup and the body causes the cellulite to break up, due to its opposite pressure. The blood circulation is stimulated, which allows the fat and toxins to be freed, and they then move to the lymph drainage network. These toxins are then removed from the body entirely since cupping therapy allows the lymph nodes to be evacuated more systematically.
Cupping therapy also relaxes the cords that connect the skin to the muscle. The buildup of fluid is eased, therefore diminishing the appearance of cellulite on the skin.
WHAT WILL CUPPING THERAPY FEEL LIKE?
People usually feel a tight sensation in the area of the body that the cup is placed in, but it tends to become relaxing after a while. Many of our clients here at Botanica Day Spa swear by it!

There is even a modern version of cupping that uses silicone cups or a rubber pump instead of fire to the create the vacuum effect, while the silicone cups allows them to move from place to place on your skin, to mimic massage movements. Cupping is a unique and incredible technique to aid in relief and physical ailments, just as the ancient Chinese have done for thousands of years.
