Check back here monthly to learn more about Ayurveda from Dr. Paula
I just had my second cupping session with Judi and I decided to write about what this means from an Ayurvedic perspective.
In Ayurveda, we focus on the qualities of the 5 universal elements of ether, air, fire, water and earth. They combine in various combinations to form the Vata dosha (ether + air); the Pitta dosha (fire + water); and the Kapha dosha (earth + water). Vata, with its qualities being cold, light, dry, moving, subtle and rough may cause our bodies to feel tight, our joints to ache, and our minds and emotions to be unsettled or repressed. The subtle quality of Vata allows it to move into and accumulate within the spaces of our bodies like the joints, knees, and, shoulder blades, causing pain, cracking and tightness. It is also in these places, where we hold tension, grief, and anger. Cupping is a good way to open these spaces and allow Vata to move out and provide relief to the body, mind and spirit. Treat yourself to a few cupping sessions to keep your body, minds and emotions balanced throughout the holiday season.
Blessings, Dr. Paula
