Can cupping reduce cellulite?

Chinese Medicines process of ‘cupping’ can help to reduce the dreaded cellulite.

Cupping has been found to be a successful treatment for a number of ailments. For example headaches, back pain, joint and muscular pain, infertility, sexual disorders, rheumatic diseases and hypertension. It is also highly effective when used for detoxification and circulatory problems.

Massage cupping is a process which is known to be particularly effective for cellulite and fat breakdown and involves the release of rigid soft tissue through the formation of negative pressure on the skin which is formed through the heated cups. This process helps to drain excess fluids and toxins, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bringing blood flow to undernourished skin and muscles.

You will normally begin to see a change after around two 20 minute sessions although this does vary from person to person.

Your therapist will use flames to heat the inside of a cup shaped like a miniature goldfish bowel and will then place them on your skin which has been oiled. Rubbing the cups over the skin will now form a vacuum and will feel tighter on areas where the problem tissue is deeper.

The aim of a natural process such of cupping is to use a physical application to stimulate the body’s natural healing powers and this achieved by balancing physical, mental and emotional energies.
