The combination of Ayurvedic massage and cupping techniques

Today I would like to introduce you to the combination of Ayurvedic massage techniques and herbal cupping methods and how I would combine them together with my own techniques. This is what I consider to be the most effective and instant pain relief that increases blood flow to the area and allows the herbs to be absorbed during the cupping process. This helps bring the energy flowing through the area to heal and open all channels for all that follows to allow the body to release toxins and get rid of waste. It works wonder.

● Ayurvedic massage is an ancient healing practice originating from India. It is based on the principles of Ayurveda, a holistic system that promotes harmony between the body, mind and spirit.
The massage is tailored to balance the doshas, which are the three vital energies (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha) believed to govern the body and mind.
Using warm Ayurvedic herbal oils and herbs applied to the skin, then massage with long, gentle strokes of effleurage techniques which allow the herbs and oils to be absorbed into the skin while bringing the body into contact with relaxation which calms the nervous system and fosters a sensation of serenity.

● Cupping therapy is an ancient alternative medicine, Its origins can be traced back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures.
The Ebers Papyrus, one of the world’s oldest medical textbooks, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.
Cups are made of

● How does the suction part work?
The cup is frequently heated with fire directly into the cup. The fire source is turned off, and the heated cup is placed on the skin, open side down. When the cup is placed against the skin, the air inside the cup cools and creates a vacuum, drawing the skin and muscle into the cup. As the blood vessels react to the change in pressure and the skin turns red and absorbs the herbs and oils applied to the skin. ( The specific of herbs and oils helps anti inflammation, reducing pain, calming down nervous systems. The redness goes away after a few days and it’s painless even though it looks red ) and once the cups are in place and drawn in they can be slid across the skin, toward the energy channels or meridians of the body. 
The sliding motion creates a deep massage-like effect that is help loosen tight muscles, improve circulation, and promote relaxation, instantly with the combination of Ayurvedic herbs and oils helping stimulate the energy channels in the body, release toxins, improve blood circulation, and promote relaxation and overall well-being. restore balance and rejuvenate the body.
