cupping and fire therapy


20 per session - - Posted Feb 14, 2017

Provide a 20 minute massage session using cupping, fire cupping or fire therapy. I specialize in the cupping (suction and fire) and my husband with the fire therapy.
it's super relaxing. I recommend at least trying it once for those who are skeptical.

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

The cups may be made of:

Cupping therapy might be trendy now, but it’s not new. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.

There are different methods of cupping, including:

Wet (we do not practice wet cupping)

During both types of cupping, your therapist will put a flammable substance such as alcohol, herbs, or paper in a cup and set it on fire. As the fire goes out, he puts the cup upside down on your skin.

As the air inside the cup cools, it creates a vacuum. This causes your skin to rise and redden as your blood vessels expand. The cup is generally left in place for up to 3 minutes.

A more modern version of cupping uses a rubber pump instead of fire to create the vacuum inside the cup. Sometimes therapists use silicone cups, which they can move from place to place on your skin for a massage-like effect.

Wet cupping creates a mild suction by leaving a cup in place for about 3 minutes. The therapist then removes the cup and uses a small scalpel to make light, tiny cuts on your skin. Next, he or she does a second suction to draw out a small quantity of blood.

You might get 3-5 cups in your first session. Or you might just try one to see how it goes.

Afterward, you may get an antibiotic ointment and bandage to prevent infection. (Mostly with wet cupping ) Skin may have what appears to be a bruise afterwards and my be red, purple or brownish and slightly raised. Your skin should look normal again within 10 days.

I will post a video link for cupping when available.

Training & Qualifications

We have taken courses with other people who specialize in this type of therapy. We Have been using these techniques for aprox 5 years. My husband studied under a "fire master" for about a year to master his fore therapy technique. I have studied with multiple people who have done cupping for 10-20 years.

About Valerie Hansen-Sinfield

I am currently taking a break on Simbi due to personal reasons. I plan to come back once I have maintained normalicy. If this message is up and vacation is off - I propably forgot to put vacation bac...k on.... sorry, it only allows for one month. I am accepting very limited proposals currently if vacation is off, please do not be offended if i say no to your proposal. So this app won't let me upload pics, I Don't know if it's my phone or this app (will try app on a different device later) it worked on my phone through my Web browser btw. I'm a mother to 2 beautiful girls who are my world. I have been involved in art and theatre since gradeschool. I would love a career in theatre but an opportunity has not presented itself. Besides theatre I love animals and working with them. I am hoping to soon have a career change to working at a vet office, but not then I am working at a major telecommunications company in customer service/sales. It doesn't make me happy, but it (mostly) pays the bills. what does make me happy is being able to download creative work - which is one of the reasons I'm here. Omg! They want you to write 1400 chatacters here. Really? I have a hard time writing this much..... I feel like I'm in high school again. How do I write enough characters to make 1400.... maybe if if just add a bunch of silly faces or something :) ;) >_< =) ^.^ ='_'= ~_~ ♡♡☆☆♡♡ ×_× =^,^= sorry I want my 100% for my profile..... except in don't have linked in...... so if might never get to 100% 《:( :( \_/ \ . / show more
