Cupping therapy

(NaturalNews) In a breakthrough that combines modern materials science with the ancient healing art of Chinese Cupping Therapy, the Health Ranger has launched a cupping therapy set made of silicone. Click here to see the set at the Natural News Store.

Cupping therapy has been used by health practitioners for thousands of years. But until the invention of modern materials, these cups were always made of glass, a fragile, inflexible material. Glass was difficult to use because to create the suction needed for therapeutic effects, practitioners needed to light small fires inside the cups, then quickly place them on the body. The cooling of the air inside the cups resulted in the therapeutic suction.

Now, after thousands of years of rigid cups, advanced materials have allowed us to create flexible silicone cups with extraordinary advantages. They're virtually unbreakable, portable and pliable. Most importantly, you can easily control the degree of suction by simply squeezing the cups more firmly or gently, depending on your preference.

This materials breakthrough combines modern science with an ancient healing art, bringing you the best of both worlds.

Watch the full video where the Health Ranger explains this:



How Chinese Cupping Therapy works

In this video, we're using two sets of cups for symmetry. As you can see, the suction of the cup pulls the skin and tissues up and away from the body. Unlike accupressure or massage therapy, which compresses muscles and tissues, cupping therapy decompresses by gently pulling tissues outward. This creates space, boosts circulation, tones skin and tissues, and helps move lymph.

Plus, it feels fantastic. People receiving cupping therapy often comment that it feels like they just received a deep tissue massage.

In traditional Chinese medicine, cupping was frequently used to relieve respiratory congestion by using cups across the chest. Almost anywhere on the body, cupping can be used to:

• boost circulation
• enhance tissue flexibility
• move fluids that might otherwise be stagnant

Our therapeutic cups are made from silicone and are safe to use almost anywhere on the body, including the legs, back, abdomen, chest, arms, neck, wrists, ankles and even your face. One set includes four cups of varying sizes. Use the larger cups on larger areas of your body, and the smaller cups on more precise areas such as face, neck and wrists.

Click here to get a set now from the Natural News Store (they cost less than a single massage).

Note that if you leave these cups on any area of your body for more than a minute, they will produce a blood circulation pattern commonly called a "hicky." This is the suction of the cups pulling blood into the upper layers of your skin, and it's a natural part of the therapy. So don't leave them for long periods on areas of your skin unless you want others to see your cupping hickies.

Self-massage with silicone cups

Cupping can be done statically, keeping the cups in one place, or dynamically by using a body oil combined with gentle movement. We recommend ozonated jojoba oil, also available at the Natural News Store.

After apply the cup and activating the level of suction that's right for you, gently move the cup along the length of your arm, leg, spine or other area of your body, making sure to maintain the air-tight seal of the cup. This action is delivering a deep massage to your tissues, creating gentle movement that can reach up to four inches inside your tissues. It leaves your skin and muscles feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, and the enhanced circulation brings new blood and nourishment to the tissues.

Cupping can also be done in the shower. Apply Dr. Bronner's soap to your arms, thighs, calves or other areas, then use the cups to massage each area, including areas of cellulite or stretch marks. You'll feel refreshed and reinvigorated!

Cupping therapy is remarkably affordable. The Health Ranger's Cupping Therapy Set costs less than a single massage session, yet you can use them over and over again, either on yourself, or with a partner. Because they're so resilient and flexible, you can easily travel with them, and because they use no batteries or electronics, they last a lifetime and make a smart addition to any medical preparedness kit or home remedies collection.

Get your set now at the Natural News Store.

Product safety reminders

In terms of product safety, here are some important reminders: if you are taking blood thinners, you are advised not to use these cups because your normal blood flow and coagulation capabilities may be compromised by the medications.

Also, these devices are not a replacement for emergency medical care. Do not use them on cuts, broken skin or serious skin conditions. Obviously, these cups cannot set broken bones or treat serious cuts or other injuries. Seek immediate medical care for such conditions.

Once medical treatment is achieved, these cups can often be safely used to boost circulation to the area, which may help support wound healing and recovery, but check with your medical professional to be sure it's safe in your particular circumstances.

These cups are not toys, so please keep them away from small children.

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
