November has arrived and Calgary is in full-blown fall. The temperature has dropped, and the wind has picked up, making this a great month to focus on the dreaded flu and cold season!
I have decided to focus on Cupping Therapy! You may wonder what these things have in common, and I am here to fill you in. cupping help boost our immune system to prevent a cold or flu.
Cupping is thought to open the pores of the body to allow more toxins to escape, this is why it helps in the early stages of a cold or flu, when the “bug” is considered to still be residing on the body surface. The cupping opens the pores, and promotes detox, often through sweating, and the pathogen is able to exit the body before becoming more serious and travelling into deeper levels of tissue. Our immune system is healthy when the opening and closing of our pores is being properly regulated, and Cupping is a great way to promote that function.
