Here is a short clip from the 👣 plantar fasciitis demonstration.
In this video, Dr. Jim Wagner is showing you how to use both static and dynamic cupping to treat 👣plantar fasciitis.
1️⃣Fit the cups along the leg and let them sit there for 3-5 minutes. This is going to address the gastrocnemius muscle into the soleus.
2️⃣Static cupping on a dynamic body part. Jim has the patient bend her ankle up and down. This will create compression through the lip of the cup, decompression through the negative pressure within the chamber itself. Repeat several times.
3️⃣Dynamic cupping on static body part. Decompression into that tissue while adding a dynamic element to the cup at the same time.
4️⃣Place the smaller cup in various different spots on the plantar fascia. Give the tissue a lift, and with a little suction do a glide back and forth. With the small cup, static cupping is also possible here as well.

Migraine is more than ‘just a headache.’ Anyone who has ever suffered from the misery of a migraine will tell you that they can be anything from unsettling and uncomfortable to downright incapacitating.
What Is a Migraine Headache?
A migraine headache is more of a condition than just a headache. Migraine headaches are typically very severe and can come with additional symptoms like dizziness, nausea and even loss of speech and sight which can be extremely frightening. In some people, they are accompanied by sight disturbances and other neurological symptoms that doctors call the ‘migraine aura’. Sometimes, in a migraine with aura, there is no headache or it can be averted with painkillers at the aura stage, but in other cases the classic migraine headache can be blindingly painful, lasting anything from 20 minutes to a couple of days.
What causes migraines?
Although the exact cause of migraine headaches is not known, most studies think there’s a genetic link that’s exacerbated by other triggers. Migraines tend to run in families and are usually hereditary. Some people can be set off by very strong smells, certain foods, heat, or bright lights.
How do you treat a migraine?
This is something you might want to discuss with your doctor, but there are options available for managing migraines. Many people turn to medication, understandably. Massage therapy can help to reduce the number of migraines in sufferers – a 2006 study of migraine sufferers showed that people who had massages experienced fewer migraines and slept better during the weeks they had massages, although it was a small study. You may have to try several different treatment options before discovering the best one for you.#berkeleymassage #massagetherapy#selfcare#migrainerelief#vitalitybodymassage#nutrition#massage#wellness#healthylifestyle#holistichealth
