Our world is full of vibration.  From the steady thrum of the airwaves that account for the origin of even the smallest of sounds to the pulsating throb of our heartbeats, we live, work and play in a universe in which rhythm rules supreme and vibration lies at the very core of existence.  This being the case, Samvahan, an ancient Ayurvedic therapy, ensures optimal health through a process of harmonizing the rhythm in our bodies to match that of the world at large.

The basic principles of Samvahan are 5,000 years old, and have a place in the ancient Indian Vedic scriptures.  However, the first written record of its more specific healing properties appeared about 2,000 years ago, when the Ayurvedic sage Charuk stated that vibration and massage could come together to effect the treatment of many illnesses.  (Translated literally, Samvahan is a Sanskrit word that means “re-awakening of even dead tissue.”)

Cupping therapy

Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.

The cups may be made of:

  • Glass
  • Bamboo
  • Earthenware
  • Silicone

Cupping therapy might be trendy now, but it’s not new. It dates back to ancient Indian, Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures.
