💭 We have previously shown you lots of cupping therapy treatments and why we use it. However, unless you’ve had the treatment with us, we haven’t gone into much detail about the marks left behind… 💁‍♀️ The cupping marks left behind after treatment are completely harmless, usually painless and only a short-term effect 🤔 The process of cupping therapy involves creating a vacuum effect around the site of injury/tightness. This draws up any old stagnant blood or toxins to the skin surface and away from the injured area, to restore healthy circulation by creating space for fresh oxygen and nutrients for efficient recovery. 🔴 The marks appear due to capillaries under the skin breaking as toxins from the area are released. The colours of the marks are dependent on the severity of stagnation in the area, ranging from bright red to dark purple in colour. If there is no stagnation present, there will be a light pink marking lasting up to a few hours. The darker the colour of the mark, the more stagnation present and the longer the marks will remain, this usually ranges from a couple of days up to a week or 2. ❓ Still intrigued and want to try it for yourself? Then drop us a message and we’ll cup you! 👍📩
