CUPPING ...When I first arrived to Dubai 10 years ago there was a Traditional Chinese Medicine clinic down stairs from my apartment. I started having cupping for muscle pain and found it helped dramatically. At that time the therapist would say 'Mam very bad circulation'... I would have very bright 'bruising' ... 10 years on as I leave each time Lucy tells me 'Mam very good circulation.' I put this down to my accupressure mat that I lie on daily and more movement in general. Of course yoga practice and conscious breathing helps too! It's the sum of all parts that make the whole. ✌🏼 Read on for more (dry) cupping info:
It is believed where there is blood stagnation in the body there will be pain. In Chinese medicine it's believed that this stagnation can block Qi (chi) or vital energy... fluids, lymph, phlegm and blood. This form of cupping aims at breaking up the stagnant blood in order to restore the body's natural flow and eliminate toxins.
Benefits range from detoxifying effects on skin and circulatory system, increase in blood flow and removal of toxins, the aide in relief of muscle spasm and pain, assist in stronger digestion, clearing congestion from the common cold and many more. ❤️ #cupping #Tcm #traditionalchinesemedicine #chinesemedicine #holistic #healthyliving #heal #health #positivevibes #bodybuilding #photography #dxb#dubai #meditation #breathing #movement #longevity #antiinflammatory #igfitness #dubaifitness #yoga #qi #yingyang #balance
