Could this ancient Chinese medicine be the trick to CURING acne? Some cupping fanatics say that the treatment could help to cure severe acne COULD the ancient Chinese medicine of cupping cure acne? The therapy is supposed to help stimulate the “flow” of your body's energy - but now some say there’s another benefit. Cupping, which is an ancient form of alternative medicine, involves a therapist placing special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. Vivian Tam, founder of Cosmetic Acupuncture Melbourne, told Body+Soul : “Regular treatments in both facial cupping and facial acupuncture can help a lot with many skin conditions (including acne symptoms) as they promote blood flow to the area, thereby promoting healing. “When there is increased circulation and lymphatic drainage, you are also helping to move toxin build up in the facial skin, reducing heat and inflammation accumulation.” Cupping has been described as a “non-invasive” procedure and, according to Cuppingresource.com , “both wet and dry cupping” can be used to treat acne. Skin clinic, Paulina des los Reyes ’ website adds: “The lifting motion helps in reducing the scarring, lines, acne, smile and laugh lines, and wrinkles and it relaxes facial muscles for [a] softer and younger appearance.” This means the process helps to stimulate blood flow to the area being treated. However, some claim that cupping is a health fad with no real benefits - and it’s advisable to see your GP before undergoing any “alternative” treatments. Cupping is generally safe, when applied by trained professionals on clients who are otherwise healthy.

‘Shark sighting’ in Alicante proved wrong ONE of Alicante’s popular beaches had an unexpected visitor recently. People strolling along the shore spotted what they thought was a blue shark a few yards away in the shallow water off the Urbanova beach in Alicante. They were more than surprised to see such a large fish swimming in the area so close to land and the experience was recorded on a number of mobile devices. However, after watching video of the fish, a local ecology expert Gabriel Soler said: “It’s definitely a swordfish… not a blue shark.” Both the swordfish and the blue shark are very common in the Mediterranean, and Soler pointed out that despite this, “it’s very strange that they come so close to the shore.” Among the explanations for the swordfish’s behaviour is that it may have become disorientated when chasing its prey, or having been attracted by some bait used by fishermen often in the area. Swordfish (known on a Spanish menu as ‘pez espada’ or emperador) is often fished for human consumption and its normal habitat is some way offshore. The images seen by Gabriel Soler from this latest sighting suggest that this one is an adult of more than one metre in length and ‘totally harmless to humans’. Last February, a 3.6 metre long shark, weighing around 200 kilos, landed on the Playa Levante in nearby Santa Pola. It was later lifted back into the sea with the help of a crane. © No part of this web site may be reproduced without written permission from the publishers. All rights reserved.
