I am so excited about this blog I don't even time to say hi.
Let's jump into this.... "cupping"
To Detox. Cellulite Break-up. Muscle Repair. The list goes on and on.
DOES IT HURT?
OH MY GOD. I had tears running down my face all 3 times. I felt like the most intense deep tissue massage you could ever get. I felt like a buffalo wing....like the cup was sucking the meat right off my bones. You can actually feel it breaking up the fat deposits.
HOW IT WORKS...
When suction is applied on the skin, the reverse pressure causes the cellulite to break up. Blood circulation is stimulated, and the fat and toxins that are released are moved to the lymph drainage network. Since cupping therapy also promotes a more efficient drainage of the lymph nodes, these toxins are quickly eliminated from the body. Cupping is also known to ease the cords connecting the skin and muscle. In this way, fluid build-up is reduced and the skin develops a more cellulite-free healthy appearance.
1. Take a shot of Titos.
2. Apply a cellulite or massage oil to your skin. LOTS of it. You want to be lubed as hell for this. I used Pure Naturals Cellulite Oil
3. Apply cup to desired area.
4. Squeeze up until you feel suction.
5. Glide cup up and down desired area
6. Sob in the corner while sucking your thumb.
BUT IT HURTS!
Can't take the pain? Put it down and walk away... there's no other way to do this.
Once the suction stopped, I felt amazing. I've been working out pretty hard so my muscles are usually pretty sore. I've noticed a huge difference in my recovery time.
Appearance... See for yourself. 3 sessions on my legs and it's pretty dramatically different. I will take the pain for a few minutes if my legs don't look like cottage cheese. Pain is beauty!
Maybe I'm losing it...but my legs look slimmer to me and I've been peeing a TON.
THE BRAND I USED...
BUT DON'T THINK...
This is all your answers. Eat healthy. Work-out. Then subject yourself to the torture that is cupping and you will be bathing suit ready.
MY FOLLOW-UP CARE
I actually started putting R+F nighttime serum across my legs because it has super tightening power. Tots working.
Stop reading...get cupping.
