Do you have joint pain? Are you inflamed? Do you have muscle spasms?

Ask your acupuncturist about cupping. This was a game changer for me in 2009.  To this day, it relieves my joint pain, muscle spasms and cools my inflammation better than anything else and within minutes.

“Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite. For weight loss and cellulite treatments, oil is first applied to the skin, and then the cups are moved up and down the surrounding area.”

I find that the oil/moving cupping can be easier on the skin if you are extra sensitive that particular day.  Initially cupping was VERY painful for me but it helped to desensitize me over time.

  1. A light massage of medicated Ayurveda Herbal oil is very effective, especially after application of heat (moderate and bearable with heat bags). Massage makes the joint movements easier.
