Cupping Therapy for Spider Veins is the most natural treatment that you can give your body. No need to hide your legs anymore and no more expensive laser treatments. Spider Veins can occur between the ages of 30 to 50 years of age, may be due to injury, pregnancy or prolonged sitting or standing. The negative pressure of the cup forces fresh blood and oxygen through the vein, thereby removing old, deoxygenated blood while you lightly glide the cup over in either zigzag or circular motions. Remember to always work towards the heart, draining from your ankles to your knees, knees to groin etc.
Now is the right time to take control of your problem areas. With the winter months, you can hide your spider veins and cellulite with long track pants. But wouldn’t it be fabulous to go straight into summer, and be able to show off those smooth, dimple and spider vein-free legs to the world once again.
Cupping Therapy for Toxin Retention works in a similar way to acupuncture on the subtle energy channels in the body to treat stagnant energy and encouraging the flow of qi (chi).
Increased blood flow into the cupping area allows that part of the body to heal more quickly by bringing toxins to the surface, which can then be released through the pores or removed by the lymphatics. By causing tissues to release toxins, cupping clears energy blockages and activates the lymphatic system. Several cups are usually placed on the body simultaneously and then left for up to 15 minutes. This fixed-position cupping can also be combined with “sliding” cupping in which the cups are moved to other points along different energy channels or meridians during a treatment session. The movement is facilitated by oil on the skin.
Cupping therapy for toxin and fluid retention can be done with your Bellabaci Body cups, by using the gliding movements to help open up pores and stimulate the lymphatic system.

Women of all ages can fall prey to those frustrating bumps, and finding a treatment that works can be costly, but not anymore. It’s time to introduce you to the best stubborn cellulite solution!
What Is Cellulite Anyway?
We all know what cellulite looks like–it’s the bumpy fat deposits that often appear on the legs and butt, but can also show up in the hips, stomach, and arms. Sometimes it’s severe, and sometimes it’s quite mild, only visible when you pinch the skin.
Well, what you’re actually seeing are swollen fat cells putting pressure on the surrounding fibrous tissue. This then pulls the skin downward and creates the telltale pitting that makes so many women self-conscious.
How to Test Yourself for Cellulite
The percentage of women with cellulite is staggeringly high–between 85-98% according to some research, and it’s medically classified into four stages:
• Stage 0: No noticeable dimpling while standing or lying, and the pinch test shows folds and furrows, but no mattress-like appearance.
• Stage 1: No dimpling while standing or lying down, but the pinch test shows mattress-like appearance.
• Stage 2: Spontaneous dimpling when standing, but not when lying down.
• Stage 3: Spontaneous dimpling when standing and when lying down.
What is this pinch test, you might be wondering? It’s very simple.
Using your index finger and your thumb, pinch the skin on your outer thigh, buttocks, or abdomen, and look for dimpling.
If you can only see some dimpling when you pinch, but want to make sure it doesn’t get worse over time, then I recommend you start taking simple, preventative actions now.
Diet to lose fat, and particularly the stubborn fat
Reducing your body fat percentage can obviously have positive effects on your cellulite, but it’s not the end-all cure as some believe (as evidenced by the many skinny girls out there with cellulite).
That said, if you’re overweight, bringing your body fat into a normal, or athletic range, will definitely help. And even if you’re not overweight, you can still carry quite a bit of stubborn fat, which is the type worst affected by cellulite. By reducing this fat in particular, you can alleviate the cellulite. Stubborn fat can be diet resistant though, making it really hard to achieve results by just making dietary changes.
Manual manipulation of these stubborn areas have deemed the only effective and long-lasting treatment to beat cellulite. Combine that with a potent yet natural formula and you have the solution to stubborn cellulite in your reach. Get your hands on The Bellabaci Cellulite Be Gone Kit, scientifically designed to banish cellulite for good!

Headaches often get brushed aside as nothing more than a common complaint, a quit-your-whining-and-start-working type of thing…if only. While many people suffer them at one point or another, rarity is not the best way to judge just how nasty something can be. The pain of a headache can make day-to-day life a miserable challenge, and forces us to head straight for the aspirin. This is a sticky situation, because ultimately that will only perpetuate the problem. Continue reading
A person that is familiar with cupping and who supports it believes that the suction of the cups mobilizes the blood flow to help promote healing of a broad range of medical ailments.
Cupping therapy goes way back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. The Ebers Papyrus, one of the oldest textbooks known to the word, describes how the ancient Egyptians were using upping therapy in 1,550 B.C. Continue reading
Do you have chocolate on your mind?
New studies show that it may not be a bad choice!
Giving into our chocolate craving makes us feel guilty. We know it contains a lot of calories and fat. In the fight to avoid it, we end up eating everything but the kitchen sink. The worst of it all is, after all that munching, you will still crave chocolate. Is it our subconscious knowing what we need? Allowing yourself some chocolate would have saved you all those extra calories, although we must consider portion size. Research shows that just 4 average sized bites is enough to satisfy. You just need to have the willpower to pack it away, until the next attack that is.. Continue reading
Breathing Deep is no problem with Cupping Therapy!
Feeling tight chested when you have the flu can disrupt anyone’s mood. Not only does it interfere with your quality of sleep (which is also when the body heals and repairs itself!), but also your ability to inhale and make use of proper lung function. Most of us have poor breathing techniques which means that we are barely using a third of our lung capacity. So, one can imagine that it decreases even more when you are ill and producing excess phlegm. Continue reading
