My hair is fake. So are my eyelashes. And I Botox my forehead... it was either new boobs or cupping and obvi, I chose cupping just so I can check off another LA CHICK BOX🤗 •
Jokes and boobs aside, (and you’re welcome that I keep it as real and transparent on social media as I can) this is my THIRD round of cupping over the last few weeks and it has worked WONDERS for me... Over the last 5 months I’ve had extreme discomfort on and off in my neck and shoulders from a combo of unhealed whiplash from a car accident and for sure emotional stress, work stress and constant celebrating someone’s something or other, (or my own!) on top of dating and let’s face it, I give a ton of emotional energy and focus and LURVE to my clients all day errry day. •
As I lay on the table today, 8 days into a cleanse mainly focusing on no alcohol or refined sugar (indulging in an apple a day and acai in my smoothies) I was PSYCHED and READY bc TODAY’S CUPPING SESSION WOULDNT BE ABOUT PULLING LAST NIGHT’S (and the night before’s and before that) WINE TOXIN’s🤗. I thought it would be a more relaxing session bc I’ve been realllllly kind to my body this week, (aside from emotionally eating copious amounts of healthy popcorn watching #abductedinplainsight ) •
It turned out to be the MOST EXCRUCIATING cupping of the 3 sessions. I almost said “we gotta loosen these!” But then a voice in my head said NO. In the same way your client just moved through discomfort of doing something her inner child didn’t want to bc it felt scary, she did it bc she knew it was for her greater good. •
Most of the time, growth and healing is more painful than fun when we want to rehabilitate the hurt in our emotional hearts or physical bodies. I almost skipped going today bc my brain said “this is a hassle. It’s a work day. You don’t have time.” •
Not having time for taking care of you is BS. And choosing to stay with your chronic pain emotionally or physically is CARELESS and creates much greater pain down the road. •
Embrace your pain. Love it. Lean into it. Say yes to it. And TRANSFORM it. You know the right option, even if it’s the less fun one. I feel like a badass after and my neck is thanking me!
