Vacuum cupping massage

Post by Ulissija » Fri Apr 20, 2018 4:03 am

In the childhood (correct me, if not) vacuum cupping massage, for the most part, used to treat colds and inflammatory diseases. But, as a rule, it all came down to placing cups in specific zones without any dynamics, that is, without moving them around the body.
Yet, in fact, you can include much more variations for this practice.
Doing it is quite simple and enjoyable.
But there are contraindications.
I was given such a massage, and I felt it thoroughly)) on myself, and decided to practise it. I have two vacuum cups, I usually use just one, but because I mostly work with the body of my husband osteopathically, I do not need vacuum cups anymore, although I used them to work through painful zones before. Vacuum cups are more suitable for me to relieve tension in the shoulder girdle, but this is not done by me, but by my husband.
In general, my experience has shown that massage can be done anywhere, with anything and whatever way you want, the main thing is to go after your internal sensations, and if I have a massage vacuum cup near me and want to use it, then I do it.
What are the benefits of vacuum cupping massage?
Well. The standard answers about it is something like this. Thanks to vacuum cupping massage:
Improves blood circulation
The skin becomes smooth and taut; levels skin turgor (the elasticity of the skin improves)
Strengthen muscle tissues
After several sessions, signs of cellulite disappear in the problem areas of the body (abdomen, hips). Many people consider vacuum cupping massage as the best remedy for cellulite. Immediately after the procedures, the instant cosmetic effect is expressed in softening of swelling. The delayed effect, after 2-3 months, the recovery of the production of the own elastin of the tissues takes place, due to which they become more elastic and taut.
Improves the lymphatic and cardiovascular systems
Corrects the shape contours of the body
The strong anti-stress effect is observed
Accelerates the withdrawal of toxins from the body
Relieve lower back and spinal pains
Mucus goes away
Removes and reduce bronchospasm
The mobility of the chest and diaphragm is the restored
Increaseы production of immune microorganisms, which improves the overall resistance of the human body to harmful environmental factors
Thanks to the creation of a vacuum effect inside the cup, blood flows to the skin, thereby activating and accelerating the intracellular metabolism. The after effects of stress on the skin (dull and flabby skin) goes away.
Vacuum cupping massage is especially effective during the recovery of the body AFTER the acute stage of bronchopulmonary diseases: pneumonia, pneumonia, bronchitis. There is a significant reduction in the recovery period after the illness (for example, a cough may end not in 4 weeks, but in 2 weeks).
Its action is based on the inflow of blood and fluid washing all the tissues of the body to the skin area under the cup, which is to the zone of lower pressure. This process has powerful healing potential. It stimulates protective and restorative mechanisms, activates cell regeneration, promotes elimination of salts from the body, and causes splitting of fat stagnation and skin renewal.
We can say that this is an "anti-massage" instead of pressing we create a vacuum or a low-pressure zone.
Vacuum cupping massage is perfectly combined with other "Slavic" techniques, for example, with wooden spoon massage and a towel, with a honey knock.
Are there any contraindications to such massage?
Of course. It is quite intense.
Contraindications as following:
Alcoholic intoxication (contraindication to any massage)
Acute poisoning
Fever in severe form
Viral disease in the initial stage (do not spread the virus through the body)
Oncological diseases (cancer patients) - do not carry cancer cells to the body
Tuberculosis in active form
Pulmonary heart disease of the third degree
Period of intensification of the inflammatory process in the respiratory system
Vascular aneurysms (peripheral vascular injury)
Gangrene
Hematomas and lymphostasis
Violations of blood clotting, a tendency to the appearance of open bleeding and other blood diseases
The presence of acute inflammatory lesions on the skin (in the massage zone)
Rheumatism in the developing stage
Thrombophlebitis; vascular thrombosis
Bile and urolithiasis (the processes of the exit of stones or sand can begin, here it is necessary to understand the situation - it's good or bad in your case, consult a specialist).Remember that the kidneys, in general, do not like sudden movements.
Varicose veins in the area of application
It is not recommended for women within two months after childbirth, or after an abortion (and if there is a chance of bleeding in the abdominal cavity during massage)
For children from the age of 3 to 6 years only use soft cups (silicone or rubber).
Vacuum cupping massage is not done for babies. Better with hands.
Friends, be sure to read the contraindications to all types of massage.
It is important to know and consider so as not harming anyone.
There is a version that vacuum cupping massage is invented in Tibet. It is very common in China, vacuum cups are applied in any Chinese clinic, and there you can always buy many of their modifications - with air outlets, plastic, glass, silicone, of various shapes and sizes.
I have already a whole collection, as well as wooden spoons)))
For the face - glass with rubber air sucking, for massage in oil - silicone, to put on different parts of the body - plastic with a mechanical air exhaust…
Ancient Chinese sources say: "acupuncture and cups [vacuum massage cups] help cure more than half of the ailments." Chinese doctors believe that vacuum cupping massage eliminates stagnation of blood and Qi energy, and helps to reduce the effect of external pathogenic factors that affect weakened health.
In the ancient Egyptian text on medicine, vacuum cupping massage is prescribed for the treatment of fever, pain, dizziness, menstrual cramps, poor appetite and acceleration of the "crisis" of the disease. From the Egyptians, the Greeks adopted vacuum cupping massage, and over time, it spread throughout the Ancient World. However, we just consider fever as a contraindication for massage, and we recommend not to "accelerate the crisis", but to help massage the body to recover after the disease when the acute phase has passed without risking worsening of the condition at the peak of the disease. The ancients were stronger than the present ones). Moreover, for modern city dwellers, no one knows what kind of reaction is possible to such a stimulated intensification.
In the Slavic tradition, there is also another practice known adjustment of a belly with large jars or pots.
That is a separate story... When on the stomach were put a clay pot, then the pot was broken, and it was expected that a hernia or some other problem would dissolve…
Nomads used hollow animal horns to suck in a vacuum, for example, snake venom.
Some traditional rural healers (including Bifatima-apy in Kazakhstan) put the vacuum cups statically for a long time, more than half an hour so that blisters begin to appear under them. Not everywhere, for the most part just in the problem areas. It is believed that through these liquid, parasites and harmful substances leave the body. Blisters will dissolve eventually, and immune system of a person will be given a tremendous boost.
It looks scary, but in fact - not so terrible and almost not painful. Although I tried to avoid this procedure).
In the case of vacuum cupping massage, self-massage is possible.
For example, you can do facial vacuum cupping massage yourself.
You can knead and drive out cellulite from your hips and stomach areas.
Moreover, remove the swelling from your legs.
Vacuum cupping massage strongly affects the lymph flow.
Therefore, when you do not put the cups statically, but move them, I think it is crucial to take into account the direction of the lymph flow, so as not to damage the valves and so on.
The theme of the lymph system:
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1891
On the limbs, this is from the periphery to the centre that is along the legs from the bottom up. Well, all sorts of "fleshy" parts such as hips, ass, we pump through with various movements such as circles, spirals, and zigzags ...))) but all in moderation)))
On hands, from the hands to the shoulder, more precisely to the clavicles, to the venous corners.
On the back, from the bottom up. Not accurately, and the movements are diverse, but yet.
On the belly nearly the same, but there you work around the navel (clockwise), along the ribs, with the immunity point, the chest, and so on. Nevertheless, the whole process gradually rises to the same venous corners.
With the face, too, you work, but you change the diameter of the cups and slow down. I do not like to leave bruises))))
I'll tell you the details on the video.
Also, there is an option to work gently through the zones of the body in a different sequence, but similarly in the direction of the lymph flow.
Just as if "pumping" an ever-growing area.
Do use the massage oil generously. The kind of oil is a question of the season, and the type of a person.
A separate topic for discussion.
Do not rush! If cups fall off, it means it should be slower.
And in stiff zones the same.
Many areas of the body, in general, do not like fast movements, for example, the kidney zone.
If it hurts, you can "suck" [massage cup] not as much. And, slow down, slow down)
Yes, and one more thing, in the same way, because the vacuum cups "drive" the lymph, during the massage session, an active detox of the body happens. Salts, toxins come out ... Therefore, the client needs before, after, and even during a massage to drink a lot of clean water again and again. Better warm. Room temperature. Not with ice)))
Prepare this in advance; let the client have this opportunity! Or, the person will soon begin to feel dryness in the mouth and even some weakness and dizziness after massage. You do not need this. If you drink a lot, cleansing the body is comfortable and gentle. And beneficial) For the body, it is a huge relief.
All this should be shown and explained in more details and more clearly)))) In general, welcome to the online course, or/and our offline retreats)))
