Not all cupping is created equal. Here is a video of Greg demonstrating Fire Cupping. Once the cups are placed, each is dredged along the acupuncture meridian. Fire Cupping can relieve muscle tension and resolve pain, break up fascia adhesion, shorten the duration of cold and cough, and help the body detoxify.
Questions and Answers
What made you choose massage as a career?
When I was playing sports, massage had assisted me during rest and recovery. It also helped me to recover from injury, sprains, and soreness. A few years ago, I had an accident that injured my back and neck. The pain had prevented me from doing my daily task. After a few massage sessions, combined with other alternative therapies, I gained back my range of motion on my neck and back.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
I enjoyed helping people recover from pain and injury, especially within a healing and peaceful environment. Before I start working with a client, I ground myself so that I can be present in the session. Deep breathing and being rooted are some techniques that have helped me to be grounded and be present when I am working. In return, this helps the client to relax and be in the moment. This way, healing is more potent.
What inspires you?
Nature inspires me. I like to catch sunrise when I can. The early morning sun warming my face and limbs is a very peaceful feeling. I also enjoy walking barefoot on the sand on the beach. During the weekend, I get on the trampoline with my 3-year old daughter and we jump around.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture has been proven to work for over 2,500+ years.
