Cupping is an ancient therapy that stimulates certain points on the body by creating a vacuum in a suction cup leading to an increased flow of blood in the area.  This action draws impurities, toxins, pain and inflammation away from the deeper tissues and organs towards the skin where it can be eliminated. Cupping facilitates the healing process, and restores balance (homeostasis) to the body.

Due to lifestyle, inappropriate diet, stress, and a lack of exercise, we may find that the body is not able to successfully digest and eliminate waste matter. When this occurs, homeostasis in the body fluids or humours become disrupted impairing the way that the body functions. Cupping is an ideal way to assist the body in eliminating unwanted toxins.

Types of Cupping Therapy

Dry Cupping
Using a flame or manual pump, a vacuum is created in a cup which is applied to the skin on local points on the body related to specific organs and energy channels. The idea is to draw underlying blood and fluid to the surface of the skin, away from the area of inflammation. This method relieves congestion and also improves blood flow to the site being cupped and its associated tissue and organ, facilitating the healing process.

Wet Cupping
After the cups are applied the skin below the cup is cut very lightly several times so that a small amount of blood flows into the cup and can be removed. Wet cupping is used to eliminate excess humours (body fluids) and toxins that cause disease.

Cupping results in temporary reddening, swelling and often a discolouration of the skin (ecchymosis). After a few weeks there is virtually no scarring on the area that has been treated, even in wet cupping. f4bc4f_015160af43534517b552c3a182960a5b    
excersiseLifestyle plays an extremely important role in the state of an individual's wellbeing. The lifestyles we adopt affect each of us either positively or negatively.

Since every person reacts differently and has a unique temperament, the influence of lifestyle on an individual's health is assessed and addressed holistically, in terms of six factors.

The six lifestyle factors include environmental air and breathing, food and drink, exercise and rest, emotions, sleep and wakefulness, elimination and detoxification.

Massage therapy is defined as a special body manipulation technique involving rubbing of the skin and deeper tissues in a specific motion with alterations in pressure, direction and movements where the therapist makes use of the hands or other extremities.

Special aromatic oils are used for in this form of therapy that have an allopathic (opposite) effect to the condition being treated. The oils are chosen on the basis of its pharmacological actions and qualitative nature.  Disciplines such as Indian Head Massage are specialisations of massage therapy.

f4bc4f_857b741f970c4a9185dbc8ab69073f96Meditation has various descriptions one being the emptying of the mind of thoughts, or the concentration of the mind on one thing, in order to aid mental or spiritual development, contemplation, or relaxation; pondering about something; or serious studying of a subject. Another meaning of meditation is the art and science of quieting and centering the mind and coordinating breathing for the purpose of relaxation and clarity of thinking (Navarra, 2004). Some may associate meditation with religion and prayer e.g. Islam uses words like ‘Inshallah’; Hindus use ‘Om’ and Christians say ‘Our Father who art in Heaven’. In today’s ever changing fast lifestyle it is becoming a constant challenge to stop and think about every moment and make time for ourselves to unwind and this is one of the reasons why conditions such as hypertension, chronic illness and stress are so prevalent. If it were a few 100 years earlier, meditation would merely be a part of your daily activities but this is different today. Until recently, meditation has merely been significant in religion and spirituality but since a large amount of scientific research has been conducted around meditation especially those associated with healing, meditation has become a common practice between both conventional and natural practitioners. Many of the ancient practices of meditation such as tai chi, transcendental meditation, mindfulness and yoga are commonly practiced today to assist with conditions such as stress; hypertension; and even pain too name a few (Kaszubski, 2004). This article explores the facts concerning the science that proves the value and significance of meditation and its beneficial effects on health and healing.
