According to a study published in the Journal of Scientific Reports in March 2018, a group of researchers have identified a new organ. They are calling it the interstitium system. It is located under the skin between the organs and muscles. This organ is made up with fluid filled compartments that act as a highway for lymphatic fluid. The compartments also act as a shock absorber to protect the organs and muscles.
The interstitium system can become blocked causing these compartments to collapse and the whole structure to flatten like a pancake.
We are using a technique called cupping that supports the healing of this system. Cupping creates a light vacuum pulling the skin outward, improving the function of this system. Think of problems in this system like a clogged sink. By applying a plunger to a clogged sink, you can rid the clog and create a flow again. Cupping works much the same.
Here are some of the benefits of cupping:
-Moves stagnation and drains fluids
-Nervous system sedation
-Stretches muscle and connective tissues
-Pulls blood supply to the skin
-Strengthens the immune system by promoting the flow of lymphatic fluid
Last year a patient named Doris came to us for help with fluid retention in both lower legs. She had severe debilitating pain that effected her ability to stand and walk. Doris had tried different medical avenues over the years with no success.
I started cupping her legs and in 6 weeks of cupping treatments her leg pain was gone, and she lost 23 pounds of water weight. Now a year later, she is still doing great!
With the revelation of how important the interstitium system is and how effective cupping treatments are at supporting it, we are encouraging all patients to give it a try. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
