Are you dreading pollen season? Do you go about your day in a Claritin-induced haze? Does seeing that thin layer of powdery yellow *literally* make you cry?
We can help!
We’ll be leading a sinus cupping master class on Saturday, April 23rd from 9:45 am to 10:45 am. The cost of this session is $45. This includes two facial cups and a small bottle of Acure’s Radically Rejuvenating Rose Argan Oil. Please let us know if you have an allergy or sensitive skin, and we can supply you with an alternative oil.
How does cupping help?
Congestion happens when our lymphatic system, which filters and drains our cellular waste, gets overloaded and slows down. This causes the liquid lymph to become stagnant and thicken, which in turn produces inflammation and pressure around your nose, eyes, and forehead associated with allergies.
The lymphatic system mirrors our circulatory system, but unlike our heart, it has no pump to help our body keep the lymph from backing up. Movement, bodywork, and cupping are the best way to keep your lymphatic system running like a well-oiled machine.
The vacuum pressure provided by the cups lifts and separates layers of skin and fascia to help liquefy the thickened lymph, and move it down towards your armpits where the larger, more densely clustered lymph nodes can take care of the extra load.
