Lets Get Into Cupping! What is it and How can it help you?

There's a daily hustle and bustle that comes with living in the city. Do you find yourself dreaming of a way to unwind and revitalize your body and mind? Well, hold onto your seats because we've got something extraordinary to share with you: the mystical and oh-so-amazing world of cupping!

You might have heard whispers about cupping before. Maybe youve seen those red circles on peoples backs and were curious what octopus they pissed off. Maybe youve seen round cups placed on people that allowed their skin to swell red. It's time to unravel the mystery of these not so often seen treatments and dive into the incredible benefits this ancient therapy can bring to your day. Let us introduce you to the wonders of cupping.

What is Cupping, Anyway?
Picture this: smooth, specially designed cups are placed on your skin, creating a gentle suction. This suction encourages blood flow to the treated areas, promoting healing, and providing a soothing sensation. Don't worry; it's not as scary as it sounds. In fact, cupping has been around for centuries and is known to have originated from ancient Chinese, Egyptian, and Middle Eastern practices. Its safe, and at Auroraflow our folks, like Hayley, are testing and certified in practicing it during their treatments. 

At Auroraflow we use dry-cupping as our preferred method.

Why Should You Try Cupping?
Stress Relief: Durham is great, but its a city with all the hustle and bustle that most cities bring. Stress can be a constant companion. Cupping eases tension and help you drift into a state of relaxation. It's like a mini-vacation for your body and mind without leaving the Durham city limits, because why would you need to do that?!
Bye-Bye Muscle Knots: Sitting in front of a computer or standing on your feet all day can lead to muscle knots and pain. Cupping helps to release muscle tension, making you feel as loose as a noodle. Say goodbye to those pesky knots!
Detoxification: Living in the city and a world growing in pollutants exposes us to various toxins. Cupping helps to draw out impurities and toxins from deep within your muscles, leaving you feeling refreshed and revitalized.
Boosts Circulation: City living can leave us feeling drained and sluggish. Cupping enhances blood circulation, promoting faster healing and a healthier body overall.
Immunity Boost: With all the germs floating around the city, a little immune system boost is always welcome. Cupping stimulates the lymphatic system, helping your body fight off infections more effectively.

Is Cupping Right for You?
Absolutely! Cupping is for everyone – whether you're a busy executive, a yoga-loving freelancer, or a parent trying to juggle a hundred tasks. This therapy is non-invasive and completely safe when performed by trained professionals. If you are concerned, you have certified massage therapists who will be working with you and able to answer any and all questions you may have. None are too big or too small.

But Does It Leave Marks?
