Cupping Therapy for Gut Health, Digestion and Weight Loss - Lure Essentials

Watch Cupping Therapy Transform Your Gut

Gut and digestive issues can be relentless. Whether it’s acute abdominal pain or lasting digestive discomfort, bloating or a workout-related ache, we understand your need for a fast, lasting solution. Compromised gut health means a compromised you. These digestive and gut-related issues are only made worse during the winter, because of our decreased activity once temperatures drop. The moment that your gut hurts your ability to enjoy a family dinner or a warm fire, it’s time to do something about it. 

Gut issues don’t discriminate. That’s exactly why Lure Essentials has engineered a unique approach to gut and digestive therapy. We’ve refreshed an ancient modality, proven useful for thousands of satisfied users over centuries of practice. It’s time to let Lure Essentials get your gut back on track!

The Science 

Research into the digestive system’s role in the human body has increased exponentially in the past decade. It is becoming increasingly evident that your wellbeing is the foundation for good health.  Now, recognition that the digestive system is significant is by no means a revelation; we’ve known for a long time that effective digestion supports the immune system, helping the body maintain healthy weight through regulation of the metabolism and neutralized irritants or allergens that enter the body through food consumption. However, the most interesting research in recent years successfully links gut performance to your brain. Long recognized as the epicenter of the body’s emotions in Eastern medical practices, the digestive system plays an integral role in regulating our mental health. That’s right: the evidence clearly shows that an unhealthy digestive system can directly increase your susceptibility to stress, anxiety and tension.

Improved digestion and gut health are only two of the benefits that become yours when you try cupping therapy for yourself. From accelerated post-workout recovery times to enriched blood circulation, this ancient modality has so much it can offer even the casual cupping enthusiast. Check out our FREE, complete guide to cupping for tips and techniques that can have you cupping in minutes.

Over the last several decades, our diets and lifestyles in the West have changed dramatically. As a result, digestive diseases are developing in record numbers. Processed foods high in fat and sugar content, together with sedentary lifestyles and stressful jobs, have impacted us so significantly that many people tolerate a “normal digestive state” that consists of near-constant discomfort. Until recently, conventional advice for supporting the digestive system was geared only towards weight management: drink water, limit caffeine and alcohol intake and consume a healthy diet of fiber-rich foods.

The Power of Cupping Therapy for Digestion

Digestion offers two major functions: it converts the food we eat into essential nutrients for energy, growth and cellular repair, and it protects the body from harmful bacteria. From entry to exit, a healthy digestive system carries food and liquids through the body every thirty-six hours, through a process called peristalsis. This series of wave-like muscle contractions move food from the mouth down to the throat and into the stomach, where it then passes through the intestines and finally out the rectum. When peristaltic function is sub-optimal, you can develop a host of gut-related issues, including cramps, constipation, diarrhea and bloating. This is where cupping therapy for gut health and digestion can make all the difference.

The growing mountain of evidence suggests that optimizing the body’s digestive processes is essential for both physical and mental health. Luckily, using a protocol that incorporates Lure Essentials cups into your daily routine can help you improve your wellbeing! In just five minutes, cupping therapy has been shown to help clear colon blockages, stimulate digestive organs, promote bowel regularity and ultimately eliminate toxins from the body.

Cupping Therapy: Ancient Practice, Modern Digestive Remedy

Cupping is an ancient medical practice, one that creates negative or reverse pressure and uses vacuum suction to lift blood capillaries and muscles towards the surface of the skin. When the fascia is separated, the body’s blood vessels expand to increase the free flow of blood to the areas of concern. Increased blood flow from one place to another (i.e. the improvement of circulation) ultimately stimulates the lymphatic system, which is essential for healing. When cupping the digestive area, it’s possible to reach up to four inches below the surface of the skin, bringing fresh blood, platelets and growth factors to the soft tissue and organs in need of stimulation and healing. Ultimately, cupping on belly fat will increase peristaltic action and secretion of digestive fluids, improving digestive function and helping to provide relief from anxiety and tension.

To help your gut transition from winter into summer mode, try this two-minute protocol from Lure. Off the bat, it’s important to remember that the abdominal area is more delicate than your glutes or quads, so it’s important to use something soft and pliable like Lure Essentials SCULPT silicone cupping cups. Unlike other silicone cups on the market, SCULPT cups are custom-engineered in several sizes to provide maximum flexibility, managed vacuum suction, comfort and versatility, all of which will lead to healthy, restorative results. 

How to Cup for Gut Health & Digestion

Our tried-and-tested protocol will have you looking and feeling good in no time:

  1. Begin by applying Lure Essentials BARE oil to your abdomen to act as a lubricant. This will facilitate smooth movement and gliding of the cups.
  2. Starting at the center of your abdomen and moving in a clockwise motion, use our favorite flash cupping technique (suction-pause-release, repeat) to slowly trace the intestines. It’s essential to begin with flash cupping, as it will loosen a lot of the waste impacted in the intestines.
  3. After two or three flash cupping rounds of the abdomen, it’s time to start dynamically cupping to assist the expulsion of waste. The next four steps will build upon one another.
  4. Starting at the left side above your bikini area, flash cup in a straight line across your lower abdomen. When you reach your right hip, gently attach the cup and drag it from right to left. Repeat this two or three times.
  5. Beginning again at the left side along the bikini line, flash cup in a straight line across your lower abdomen. When you reach your right hip, begin flash cupping up about six inches, until you’re above your belly button. When the “L” shape is completed, gently attach the cup and drag it down to your right hip and across to the left. Repeat this process 2-3 times.
  6. Beginning again at the left side of the bikini line, flash cup in a straight line across your lower abdomen. When you reach your right hip, begin flash cupping up about six inches until you’re above your belly button. When the “L” shape is completed, begin flash cupping gently from right to left across the abdomen, stopping about six inches above your starting point. When three sides of the rectangle are complete, gently attach the cup and drag it across your abdomen from left to right, down to your right hip and across to the left. Repeat this 2-3 times.
  7. Finally, beginning for the last time at the left side along the bikini line, flash cup in a straight line across your lower abdomen. When you reach your right hip, begin flash cupping up about six inches until you’re above your belly button. When the “L” shape is completed, begin flash cupping gently from right to left across the abdomen, stopping about six inches above your starting point. From here, flash cup down to where you started. When all four sides of the rectangle are complete, gently attach the cup and drag it up six inches, across your abdomen from left to right, down to your right hip and across to the left. Repeat this process 2-3 times.
