Sciatica is the term used to refer to pain along the sciatic nerve, which extends from your lower back, through your hips and buttocks, and down each leg. Sciatica typically affects only one side of your body and can range in severity from mild to severe. It’s often accompanied by other symptoms, including numbness, tingling, or weakness in the affected leg and foot.
Lymph drainage using MediCupping™ bodywork can greatly benefit pre- and post-operative conditions and may assist in the healing process. The same drainage, breakdown of stagnation and adhesions will assist in contouring the body and improving the appearance of cellulite. MediCupping™ therapy produces results cumulatively, and work best when performed two times a week, in a series of 6-8 sessions.
MediCupping Bodywork is used to lift and stretch soft tissue (muscle, fascia/connective, attachments), separate fused tissue layers (i.e. ITB and TFL), release and soften scar tissue, open body drainage systems to aid in decongesting “solid bloat” and increase hydration of tissues. Bones also respond well to treatment. Skin discolorations reveal old blood trapped in the tissue and will dissipate between 1-4 days.
This technique eliminates buildup of wastes and fluids in the face and neck. The action is cumulative, if a series of treatments is done 1-2 times per week. Each client will have a different level of stagnation, so the number of treatments varies for each individual. The technique opens and clears the drainage pathways in the head and neck. The treatment works best in a series of 6 – 8, with a treatment every three to four days.
