There are many health benefits to Chinese Dietary Therapy. It has been known to assist with overall wellness and wellbeing. Dietary therapy is the best preventative medicine and has protocols for disease. It also acts to remediate energetic imbalances. Many health problems can be cured by making small changes in your diet. For example, refined and processed foods, such as refined flours and grains, create sticky mucus deposits and contribute greatly to dampness in the body. Dampness can be seen in conditions like yeast infections, edema, loose stools, certain types of eczema, and more. A patient would be asked to discontinue these foods and others for a certain amount of time and incorporate into their diet foods that will dry dampness such as rye bread, onions, beans, and basmati rice.
Cupping works somewhat the same way a deep tissue massage works. Think of a tight rope. If you twist the tight rope and make it tighter, then try to pour a glass of water through the rope, the water will never make it to the middle of the rope because it's so tight. It's the same with tight muscles. If a muscle is very tight, the blood that is flowing around it will never make it to the middle of that muscle because it’s so tight. That muscle is holding on to a lot of old blood causing it to stay tight and not relax. I’m sure you know someone with rock hard neck and shoulders. Cupping will force the blood to move, bringing it to the surface.The darker the rings, the more stagnant the blood. It's simple: When your blood moves, all of your muscles, organs and tendons, receive the healthy blood and oxygen they need to stay healthy and function at their best.
