Medicupping Vacu Therapy
Therapists who have explored the use of vacuum therapies in bodywork have found that the addition of suction and lifting to other massage techniques has produced radical changes for clients and for themselves. One of the most amazing aspects of this technique is the "separation" that the vacuum produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue as well as the elimination of old waste and congestion. It has become evident that separation and drainage of fused, congested soft tissue produces an increase in tissue and systemic function and is a great catalyst for change in health.
Every injury, illness and surgery-and even the toxic substances that the body has been exposed to from conception forward-may still be present in the tissues. The body is brilliant in its efforts to protect itself from the effects of personal history, yet its capacity is limited. The body has to store that which it cannot process and eliminate. The result is an accumulation of materials, such as old medications, inflammatory agents, cellular wastes and acids in stagnant lymph fluid.
Each body reacts uniquely to this accumulation of debris and stagnation, and we can see examples of degeneration occurring at younger ages more than ever before. Ordinarily healthy people become fatigued and sluggish due to the cumulative effects of their lifestyle and eventually move into the dis-eased state. This may help to explain the high level of auto-immune disorders that we see on client intake forms.
This unrecognized pathological condition is affecting a large segment of the population and could be a key component of disease and degeneration, allergies and addictions, as well as obesity and toxicity. The condition is "Solid Bloat" (see the sidebar) and often manifests as weight gain or cellulite, and can eventually lead to serious health issues.
Creating space in the existing tissue and any surgical scarring for the lymphatic system to re-establish itself, releasing old inflammation from past medical procedures and injuries, and changing the PH and polarity of the tissue so that it can heal is of crucial value, yet the emotional and energetic healing is also of great importance.
Along with the substantial health benefits of clearing old debris and releasing scar tissue, the use of suction is invaluable for restricted soft tissue and fascia. Sports professionals are benefitting from the ease of recovery from injury or surgery and an increase in athletic performance, and major league sports teams are utilizing the therapy. There are special applications for pre- and post-surgery conditions, orthopedic alignment work, conditions associated with Diabetes, Parkinson's, Fibromyalgia, and much more. Think of the impact of clearing and opening the body systems all the way down to a cellular level, as well as releasing old structural compensatory patterns that are no longer beneficial. A new cycle begins with the replication of healthier cells turning into healthier systems and leads to wellness.
