Healthy skin thanks to cupping therapy
The body’s largest organ is the skin, and it has to suffer a lot. It is important to spend time caring for this organ. Beauty salon Moment4U in The Hague uses cupping therapy to improve the skin’s condition. “Our cupping therapy stimulates the natural functions of the skin. The treatment has a cleansing and relaxing effect”, says Monica, owner of Moments4U.
Based on Chinese cupping therapy
Our cupping therapy is based on ancient Chinese medicine. It is a connective tissue massage that improves circulation and stimulates the lymph glands. We pull the skin up from the underlying muscles using the cups, which speeds up blood circulation and drains accumulated toxins.
“I try my very best to anticipate my client’s needs, so that complaints such as stretch marks, cellulite, muscle pain are considerably reduced or even disappear altogether.”
Silicon vacuum cups
Before the cupping therapy, you first receive a massage with organic oil, to make the skin supple. Then we move the silicon vacuum cups over those parts of the body that need this healing care. “The therapy is not usually very painful. At first, the skin does have to get used to the cup sucking up the skin. If you have repeat treatments, the stagnations will disappear and therefore also the pain. Many clients are completely relaxed and sometimes even fall asleep”, says Monica
Healing effect of cupping treatments
Cupping therapy has a healing and cleansing effect. It is used, among other things, to reduce cellulite, stretch marks, stiffness and muscle aches. It will also give you warmer hands and feet. “I quickly pick up on what my clients need. For instance, if they have a painful shoulder, the cause of the pain may be somewhere else. By gently pressing with the cups and finding out more about what my clients do in their daily lives, I find out where the pain really originates. It also creates a deep contact with my clients, so that I can treat them with genuine attention.”
Cupping therapy treatment plan
The treatment plan we formulate depends on the severity of the complaint. Some clients visit once a month, some several times a week. Monica: “I try my very best to anticipate my client’s needs, so that complaints such as stretch marks, cellulite, muscle pain are considerably reduced or even disappear altogether. The cupping massage is a moment of relaxation above all, whereby I help my clients to let go of the stresses of the day.”
