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.
While conventional weight loss methods do not work on specifically targeted areas of the body, cupping is known to help in spot reduction as well. Patients can request treatment to remove sagging buttocks, saddlebags, flabby inner thighs and any other love handles. Cups are simply applied on the areas of the patient’s body that need treatment.
dry cupping is the most common form of therapy used but other forms such as gliding cupping also known as running cupping or massage cupping can also be used.
The cupping therapist applies oil on the patient’s skin before causing suction. Once the proper suction is created, the healer moves the cup over the affected areas of the body to relax the tissues and induce the release of fat and toxins that are ultimately expelled from the body naturally.
This massage cupping technique has become very popular for cellulite and mainly uses silicone cupping sets that are easier to glide across the skin and use than traditional pump cupping sets. Also applying oil, like this cupping oil, to the target area will drastically improve your ability to glide the cups across the skin.
