After 17 years of practice as a licensed massage therapist in Charleston, SC, Aija  (Atmah Ja) has assimilated a range of techniques—making her a specialist in the field of mind-body medicine, yoga, and meditation. Aija is one of the few therapists to offer cupping in Charleston, SC after having first encountered “fire” cupping while apprenticing with a Thai medicine man in Chang Mai,Thailand. While cupping has been around for centuries, it is currently trending because of its ability to produce dramatic healing effects in a shortened period of time!

Over 80% of the body’s immunity lies in the digestive tract, specifically in the intestinal wall – as well as 95% of the mood support chemicals, including serotonin (a neurotransmitter that stabilizes mood with only 5% of it is found in the brain)! This research suggests that our mood is far more influenced by our digestion than by the chemistry in the brain!!!!

Optimal health and longevity lies in restoring the digestive strength and healthy microbiology.

Most people don’t realize the health sustaining benefits to cleaning their colons.  We are either unaware of our digestive discomfort because we accept it as normal and feel we can live with it, or have nobody to talk to about it so we ignore the issue and let it perpetuate.

Years and years of eating unnaturally processed, cooked, frozen, canned and preserved foods are contributing factors to an unhealthy digestive track leading to toxic build up of mucoid plaque adhering to and congesting intestinal walls. The colon can become permanently toxic and systemic health problems eventually result as poisons seep into the bloodstream and find their through the body.

As such, compromised digestion can in turn hinder the building of the body tissues, thereby weakening immunity, virility, vitality, stress-management and restful sleep!

How does Cupping Therapy help the digestive system

Cupping therapy externally manipulates the digestive system and reproductive organs. Its effect stretch all 22 feet of small intestine and 5 feet of large intestine, the stomach, colon and reproductive organs removing layers of putrid, impacted fecal matter and plaque buildup that has compacted and hardend.

Cups are placed over the Gall Bladder and the Ileocecal valve and suction is applied, creating a negative pressure. The therapist then uses another cup to slowly dredge and clear the Descending Colon, Sigmoid Colon, Large Intestine, and Small Intestine. The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and many clients find the process very relaxing.

Essential oils are incorporated into the treatment that are key to assisting the body with healthy circulation, assimilation and elimination of waste and toxins!

Make sure to drink plenty of room-temperature water over the next several hours and expect bowel movements to occur over the next 24-72 hours.

 Cupping Therapy for the digestive system is a great way to stay regular as well as assist in detoxification of the body.
