CUPPING / HIJAMA
A health coach sounds like something for the rich and famous. But you don’t have to have your own reality show or an entourage to reap the benefits of health coaching. An increasing number of people are turning to these wellness champions to help them ditch bad habits and adopt new, healthier ones.
Cupping is a practice used in traditional medicine in several parts of the world, including China and the Middle East. It involves creating suction on the skin using a glass or plastic cup. It is making a big comeback thanks to top-notch Olympians, like Michael Phelps, practicing it, but the art of cupping has been around for centuries.
Yoga is a great way to work on your flexibility, strength and balance. Just about everyone can do it, too -- it's not just for people who can touch their toes. It is a great way to meditate, perform deep breathing for relaxation and to decreased anxiety.
A physical therapist helps take care of patients in all phases of healing, from initial diagnosis through the restorative and preventive stages of recovery. Physical therapy may be a standalone option, or it may support other treatments.
Taking yoga with Fareen was a fabulous experience. Typically I don’t enjoy yoga because I’m not so great at getting the poses right. Fareen makes sure everyone participating is feeling confident in their positions before moving along. I truly enjoy and appreciate Fareen’s teaching style and the fact that she’s fun, too!
When I contacted Fareen for cupping, I wasn't sure what to expect. I just knew that I felt lethargy, had body aches and felt tense. She suggested I get dry cupping done and get a detox. After a few days of dry cupping, I felt much lighter. Then I went for wet cupping and it was amazing. My energy level improved. Fareen was professional, guided me well and checked with me after the sessions as well to ensure my wellness. I would highly recommend her.
Fareen is an awesome yoga instructor. She’s not your usual run-off-the-mill instructor who gives a class and gives general instruction only. Fareen takes personal interest to provide goal setting plans for your fitness needs. I did the yoga session and body conditioning class. The conditioning classes were extremely effective in getting my heart rate up and come out of the class feeling great. Let me tell you those exercises really make all your muscles working.
I have been a client of Fareen’s for several years for cupping, physical therapy and yoga. I was having several migraines weekly and suffered neck and shoulder pain. After trying many medications and injections, I am happy to say that working with Fareen vastly improved my intensity and frequency of migraines and my neck and shoulder pain was relieved completely.
