My 6 Favorite Benefits of ACE MediCupping™ Therapy
I have been seeing a lot of clients lately for MediCupping Therapy to help with things like cellulite reduction, increasing range of motion, increasing motor skills and flexibility after a stroke, decreasing the appearance of scars and breaking up scar tissue and even general muscle pain. There are so many issues we can address with medicupping therapy it can get a little overwhelming! So, I thought I would put together a list of MY top 5 favorite benefits of this service.
#1 : Pain Relief
MediCupping mimics the effects of a deep tissue massage in a gentle, easy to receive way. Unlike deep tissue massage MediCupping uses suction to pull tissues away from where they are adhered to release them gently. I use this treatment in lieu of massage on my older clients or clients who do not enjoy the feeling of deep tissue massages but need the deep muscle release. MediCupping releases tight, contracted muscle tissue and can also loosen adhered scar tissue and mobilize joints greatly reducing pain in many different cases.
#2 Cellulite Reduction
I cannot tell you how excited I was to hear that this service works to drain and smooth cellulite! I am in my 20s and do not appreciate the dimply skin forming on my upper thighs! Using light suction the cups provide drainage of the excess fluid trapped in the area while a heavier application stimulates circulation and loosens the adhesions (or dimpling) in the area.
P.S. Stay tuned for my before/afters, I'll be posting them on instagram once this spray tan wears off (for consistency since I don't have a tan in my before and tans can reduce how noticeable the dimpling is)
#3 Face Lifting
Cupping has been used for centuries to detoxify and provide clearer, smoother skin. MediCupping can help smooth fine lines and wrinkles, relax and tone facial muscles (creating a lasting effect of less wrinkles) and restore circulation to the skin creating a more youthful appearance! You would never guess the age of some of my clients, they look AMAZING! Plus with out going in to too much detail, MediCupping is a WAY better option than certain injections in the long run. Seriously guys, if you only knew the end results after years of using some of the treatments out there....
#4 Headache Relief
I used to suffer from frequent tension headaches, since using this therapy on myself I have seen a huge decrease in the frequency of headaches I get (I have had one since I started the therapy). What works for one person doesn't always work for another, especially when it comes to headaches/migraines. While my headaches were specifically caused by muscle tension, I know other peoples are not, however treating specific spots with MediCupping therapy and restoring the flow of lymph and blood can relieve pain for all types of headaches.
#5 Weight Loss/Reducing Solid Bloat
This is another exciting benefit! You know that little pouch of fat in the stomach area that just never wants to go away no matter how much you exercise or how good your diet is?! Or how about the extra weight you carry despite being active and eating really well. Yeah that is most likely solid bloat, or areas where the body is storing toxins it has accumulated over the years inside stagnant fluid and fat deposits. MediCupping can release the stagnant fluid, break up blockages and melt away the stubborn fat so the toxins that are stuck in it can be moved out of the body through the lymphatic system. Imagine all the years of fighting this stubborn fat finally over and all of the toxic debris moved out of your body leaving behind healthy tissue.
Here Is a great article from the creators of MediCupping all about solid bloat!
#6 Scar Tissue - Mobilization and Reducing the Appearance
From C-Section scars to surgery scaring this machine works WONDERS! I am in the process of treating a few different types of scars one being C-Section scar which was blocking the lymphatic flow through the abdomen for my client, so far we are seeing an improvement in the adhesions deep within her scar and the flow of lymphatic fluid from her legs. Another scar treatment I am working on is from a more recent surgery and that particular client was having a hard time lifting his arm (rotator cuff surgery, now muscles feel weak and tight). He noticed an increase in range of motion and ease of movement after the first treatment. Lastly, as pictured on our instagram account, after just three quick treatments on this client's surgery scar we are seeing the scar start to fade and smooth out! I am so excited about the potential for cosmetic and functional improvements of scarring with this treatment!
There are many more applications I could write about but these are my top favorites and the ones I think are most relevant to my clients! For more information you can check out ACE Massage Cupping and MediCupping, they have a lot of great articles and even videos on the treatment.
