Ancient Medicine For Modern Times
Cupping is a healing modality many thousands and more old originating in China. Before the West tried it and accepted it as an alternative to Western Pharmaceutical treatments, it had already been widely used in Europe and Russia for hundreds of years prior. The authentic cupping therapy is called fire cupping because fire is used with glass cups and in very recent times the modern world, developed plastic/silicone cups.
The way the cups work is that they create a suction effect when placed on the skin and this ‘suction’ strongly stimulates the blood flow and as well acts to ‘vacuum’ out toxins, pain and all manner of ills out of the body. The benefits of using the plastic/silicone cups is that you do not have to worry about the safety precautions required while using Fire Cupping. However, with an experienced authentic Holistic Health Practitioner like Yamil, the Fire Cupping can have a deeper more soulful cleansing effect due to the activation of the the Fire Energy being directed to do so.
