Taking care of your beauty and well-being is essential, and at our SPA and salon in Edmonton, we offer innovative methods rooted in ancient traditions like Hijama/cupping. Our body speaks about us, about our daily habits. Cupping is an innovative method that has very ancient origins. The technique can be traced back to Chinese Medicine. The primary purpose of cupping is to provide not only physical well-being but also mental well-being.
What is Hijama/cupping?
It works like this: small cups (usually made of glass, plastic, or rubber) are applied to the skin acting as suction cups. To ensure that the cups adhere to the body, a lit match is inserted inside that burns oxygen, creating a vacuum inside: hence the suction cup effect. The cups are quickly moved over the skin and left in place for up to 20 minutes. The vacuum that is created "pulls" the skin: this explains the reason for those obvious signs after the treatment. Don't be scared, they disappear within a week.
Hijama/cupping: The Benefits
Cupping guarantees not only physical well-being but also mental well-being. The benefits obtained from constant practice are truly remarkable. A certain regularity in the treatment guarantees the desired results. Among the benefits of cupping are holistic relaxation and rejuvenation. At our spa in Edmonton, we take pride in offering a variety of SPA packages Edmonton tailored to your specific needs.

Among the benefits of cupping are;
Cellulite reduction: fat accumulation is one of the main enemies of women. Areas such as the thighs, buttocks, abdomen & arms are often affected by this annoying blemish. Cellulite is an inflammation of the tissues and its appearance can be reduced and counteracted by the constant use of cups. Among the main reasons for inflammation are a sedentary lifestyle, poor eating habits & above all poor blood and lymphatic circulation. Cupping promotes an improvement in the appearance of the epidermis of the treated area & the dissolution of fat pads. The technique also guarantees the elimination of toxins, thanks to the drainage of liquids that prevents stagnation.
Decrease in rheumatic and muscle pain: trauma, climate change, and pathologies can lead to the appearance of rheumatism and widespread pain. Cupping works on the areas affected by discomfort, massaging gently but firmly. It helps to alleviate the discomfort. Cupping is especially recommended for back pain. In the case of sciatica, for example, the technique can provide immediate and lasting relief, by reducing symptoms such as tingling in the lower limbs and contracted muscles, thanks to a message executed circularly.
Promote mental well-being: the cupping technique also ensures psychological well-being. Situations such as stress, insomnia & anxiety can be counteracted with cupping, which causes a general relaxation of the body.
Among the areas most treated with cupping is the abdomen. Thanks to the constant use of the cups, there is a reshaping of the belly and a substantial reduction in abdominal fat. Massaging the belly with cups also results in greater blood flow, promoting circulation.
At the end of the cupping treatment, it is advisable to use a draining cream to improve the results.
The treatment is not painful, but you may find it a bit uncomfortable. However, it is not recommended in cases of pregnancy, skin problems, or in case of chronic diseases that create exhaustion. Book safe Hijama/cupping Edmonton with Body Smoking SPA.
