Cupping therapy is increasingly being used in weight reduction and the removal of cellulite. Many celebrities are now talking about the fascinating effects of the treatment that is a form of deep-tissue, non-invasive healing therapy.
In today’s times, cupping therapy is performed by using glass or medical-grade silicone cups that the user pushes on for suction much like an everyday suction cup.
Cellulite is mainly caused because of a genetic condition which causes fluid retention, an inefficient lymphatic drainage system and weak veins that result in ineffective blood circulation. Hormonal imbalances can also cause the development of more fat cells. These factors result in the fat cells lying under the skin converting into cellulite.
When suction is applied on the skin, the reverse pressure causes the cellulite to break up. Blood circulation is stimulated, and the fat and toxins that are released are moved to the lymph drainage network.
Since cupping therapy also promotes a more efficient drainage of the lymph nodes, these toxins are quickly eliminated from the body. Cupping is also known to ease the cords connecting the skin and muscle. In this way, fluid build-up is reduced and the skin develops a more cellulite-free healthy appearance.
This cellulite pushes up the cords connecting the skin to the underlying muscle and creates the ungainly appearance of the dimpled, orange peel look on the skin that is a sign of cellulite. Since each cupping session can be customized for maximum effect on every individual patient, the therapy provides many other positives. Patients have reported the detoxification of the body, a firmer, tighter appearance of the skin, and removal of stretch marks, acne and scars.
The body is shapelier and better blood circulation results in the appearance of a healthier looking skin.
