Skincare specialist and aromatherapist Veronica Massa shares the benefits of her Bellabaci Cupping treatment and suggests it is a good time of year to try it out
Are you feeling sluggish, bloated and tired? It may be a sign that your body needs a good detox. When our bodies are not doing so well, it gives us signals we sometimes misread or ignore. These may include poor sleeping, lethargy, thirst, cravings, frequent colds and flues, cold sores etc. Now is the time to take matters into your own hands and give your body a good clean!
Spring is the ideal time to give your body a good clean! A detox programme for Spring is very recommended and Cupping Therapy Massage is a great method to use alongside a Detox Programme as it deeply stimulates the circulation renewing the blood and tissues with fresh nutrients and oxygen and eliminating toxins by draining the lymphatic system.
Cupping Therapy Massage treats your lymphatic system to boost the toxin’s
elimination speed, helping to improve the function of your liver, which is our body’s
main detoxifying organ.
Detox through the skin
The skin is our biggest organ of elimination. Our skin breath through the pores and eliminates unwanted toxins though sweet. Sweat glands in the skin play active roles in the excretory system: the organs and glands that flush out toxins and excess minerals from the body.
Dead skin cells are a form of bodily waste that facilitates the growth of new epidermal cells. Every minute, you lose 30,000 to 40,000 dead skin cells, all of which are replaced immediately by fresh skin tissue. The body does an excellent job of sloughing off skin cells through normal activity, but cupping offer a very deep pore cleansing and aids the elimination of dead cells and stimulates the fibroblast cells to produce elastine and collagen necessary for a healthy connective tissue.
