Medicupping therapy works to eliminate this Solid Bloat and open drainage in the body. The vacuum lifts and releases rigid soft tissue, as well as scars, adhesions and restrictions. By clearing debris, opening drainage, and easing limited movement these incredibly effective techniques relieve pain and enable the body to promote healthier tissue. It is an effective tool to help relieve chronic pain at old injury sites and also addresses conditions such as: fibromyalgia, pre and post –op edema and inflammation, chronic edema, scar tissue and adhesions, and “Solid Bloat”.
The physical formation of “Solid Bloat” is simple; heat from inflamed tissue slowly dehydrates the surrounding lymph, which inhibits normal drainage, circulation and hydration. Fascia fuses together from the heat and the congestion spreads through the upper tissues and skin surface. This inflammation can come from a myriad of sources such as surgeries, injuries, chronic movement patterns, and even childhood diseases and exposure to toxicities.
By creating suction and vacuum pressure, Medicupping is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues, move deep inflammation to the skin surface for release, and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.
“Our bodies are a "walking history" of our lives...every injury, illness, surgery and even toxic substances that we have been exposed to from conception onward may still be present in the tissues. The body is brilliant in its efforts to protect itself from the effects of personal history, yet the capacity is limited. The body has to store that which it cannot process and eliminate and the result is inflammation and stagnation…“Solid Bloat”.” - Anita Shannon
