Cupping

Release tensions and revitalize with cupping

Relieve your body, reawaken your energy, feel the revival of vitality.

Its benefits

1. Deep relief: cupping focuses on releasing deep muscle tensions, alleviating pains and discomfort for an immediate sense of well-being.

2. Energy stimulation: by improving blood circulation, cupping revitalizes your vital energy, providing a natural boost to your vitality.

3. Quick recovery: ideal for athletes and those with active lifestyles, cupping accelerates muscle recovery and reduces fatigue.

Cupping

A vacuum is created within the cup by briefly heating the air inside or by using a suction pump. Once the air cools or the pump is released, a vacuum is formed, causing the skin to be drawn into the cup.

The cups are swiftly placed on specific points on the body. The suction created by the cups results in a negative pressure that lifts the skin and superficial muscle layer into the cup.

Cupping can be performed using either a static or dynamic technique. In static cupping, the cups are left in place for a set duration, typically 5 to 15 minutes. In dynamic cupping, the cups may be moved around the skin using massage oil, creating a gliding or sliding effect.

What are the benefits of Cupping:

  1. Pain Relief: Cupping is often used for pain management, providing relief from conditions such as back pain, neck pain, and muscle soreness.

  2. Improved Circulation: The suction effect increases blood flow to the cupped area, promoting circulation and facilitating the removal of metabolic waste.

  3. Muscle Relaxation: Cupping can help to release tension in muscles and fascia, promoting relaxation and flexibility.

  4. Detoxification: While more research is needed, some proponents suggest that cupping may aid in the elimination of toxins from the body.

  5. Respiratory Relief: Cupping is sometimes used to address respiratory conditions, such as coughs and congestion.

Cupping may leave temporary marks on the skin, commonly referred to as “cupping marks” or “sha.” Cupping should be performed by trained practitioners to ensure safety and efficacy.

I can highly recommend going to Julie! What I appreciate the most is that her treatment is personalized. She takes her time for you and makes you feel comfortable. I’ve had acupuncture in the past but now with Julie I’ve noticed a significant change already within a few weeks.

Julie is amazing!! Her manner is calming and she has great knowledge about acupuncture. I have been going to her for exactly one year and I have seen such good results, even after just a few months. Highly recommend her!!

After many years of struggling with fertility and IVF I went to see Julie during my last round of IVF. Both leading up to the IVF (which was successful!) and for the morning sickness thereafter. I really feel that Julie Accupuncture was what made all the difference and I felt amazing after every session. She also listens and it’s like a mini therapy session too :). Highly recommended!

Julie worked her magic with me and I am super grateful! For years I have suffered extreme pain during my period and couldn't leave the house for 2 days. After working with Julie for a couple of months, I just had my first normal period. This is huge for me and I am more than grateful for Julie's support through out this process :) I am looking forward to improving and maintaining my health and wellbeing with her!

I had several acupuncture sessions with Julie because of my tinnitus. The acupuncture has helped me enormously to decrease my tinnitus. In addition to the acupuncture she also gave my advice about nutrition and we discussed things that could help me with my sleeping difficulties. The overall approach made a big impact on my tinnitus and my wellbeing. I am very happy with the results and the extensive knowledge she provided. She knows her profession very well!

Amazing! Julie had amazing knowledge, is so kind and will take care of you in a very holistic way. I did a facial, a tcm treatment and acupuncture for my acne. All treatments were really relaxing, professional and felt good. Can highly recommend. 😊

Julie has magical hands and on each of my visits I have left feeling amazing. She is very knowledgeable and interested in overall well-being. I have had several massages, acupuncture and my favourite was the facial. I have never experienced the attention to facial movements before. The leg massages were very powerful as they were deep and my legs felt renewed. I could not recommend Julie highly enough. Oh and her prices are reasonable too.
