Dublin Holistic Massage is glad to announce that we can now provide cupping therapy to our clients.
Cupping Therapy has been practised for thousands of years as part of Chinese medicine. According to the theory that underpins traditional Chinese medicine, it is believed that illness or disharmony, such as stress and pain can be caused by stagnation of blockage of Qi (vital energy), Blood and lymph fluids. Back pain that is caused by bad posture means that your Qi (vital energy) and Blood can’t flow properly through that area and begin to stagnate, as in bruise. Cupping Therapy in Dublin is applied to stimulate movement of Qi (vital energy) and Blood and to facilitate healing by promoting the smooth flowing of your essential fluids. It is used to treat all kinds of muscle pain, stress, and to help clear congestion after a cold or flu. The Cupping therapy involves creating a vacuum in several cups and applying them to the skin. This causes a suction sensation which stimulates energy and fluid flow and eliminates toxins. The practitioner can also “run” the cups over a portion of large muscle which is a very relaxing sensation. You are usually left with some painless marks “bruises” but they disappear within a week. Regular results are an immediate relief of pain and stress.
Cupping therapy has been developed as a means to open the ‘Meridians’ of the body. Meridians are the conduits in the body through which energy flows to every part of the body and through every organ and tissue. There are five meridians on the back that, when opened, allow invigorating energy to travel the whole length of the body. It has been found that cupping is probably the best way of opening those meridians. Cupping has also been found to affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages, help activate and clear the veins, arteries and capillaries, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and improve varicose veins. Cupping therapy in Dublin is the best deep tissue massage available.
