Cupping Workshop at treat!
Learn the art of “Cupping”. It’s an ancient Chinese therapy related to acupuncture that can be self administered and used on friends and family in the comfort of your own home.
In this 4 hour course you will learn the theory of cupping, how to use it and what it can be used for.
At Treat Cupping is used for back and neck pain, stiff muscles, fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia, migraines, and even cellulite. This treatment is also valuable for the lungs, and can clear congestion from a common cold. Three thousand years ago, in the earliest Chinese documentation of cupping, it was the recommended treatment for pulmonary tuberculosis.
In China, today it is still used for respiratory conditions like bronchitis, asthma, and congestion. Other uses include treatment of arthritis, gastrointestinal disorders, certain types of pain and the reduction of swelling. Some practitioners also use cupping to treat depression.
After injury, damaged areas develop blockages of blood and body fluids, injured joints become swollen and painful and backs become stiff, and difficult to move.
Chinese medicine likens the blockages of blood and body fluids that accompany an injury to a beaver dam. The force of the accident or injury creates the initial obstruction – the sticks, mud and leaves of the dam. The free flowing water of the mountain stream is slowed down to a small trickle as stagnant water backs up behind the dam. And like the water of a beaver dam, which can cause flu like symptoms for those who swim in it, the stagnant blood and body fluids that occur at the injury can cause pain and inflammation.
We feel stagnated in ourselves, tense, irritable or low moods. Cupping can help move blockages in the body so we feel release.
