There are 2 types of cupping therapy. The traditional one with the use of fire, and the other with plastic cups. Both are effective, with good results but we need to choose what is needed and what will work best for each case. Cupping marks and spots are left locally which gradually cure in the following days.
One can also choose to do cupping therapy as a precaution, because it improves blood and lymph circulation, and helps in rapid detoxification of the body.
In a cosmetic acupuncture treatment we adapt to the needs of each skin type. With systematic repetition the results are obvious. The expression wrinkles are reduced and softened, the swelling under the eyes is reduced, the skin becomes tighter, and all face muscles are stimulated because of the production of collagen. Of course while working on the face, we work with our mental level, too, so it offers deep relaxation.
Everything in Chinese Medicine is divided into Yin-Yang. Anything that is on the surface is characterized as Yang and as we go deeper it is Yin. By working the face (yang) we activate the qi movement on a deeper level (yin), because meridians pass and travel from the face, inside the body. The meridians that pass through the face are the stomach, the bladder, the gallbladder, the triple burner, the large and the small intestine.
In every session, we work on a mental-emotional level. Our senses and perceptions on multiple levels are becoming clearer.
