I was first introduced to Fire Cupping in a healing retreat in Joshua Tree. It was weeks after I had to be cut from my car using The Jaws of Life as a result of a lady hitting my driver door at full speed through a red light.

I was suffering a bruised lung, cracked ribs and the doctors told me I may be bed bound for anywhere from 4-6 months before I was 100%.

I was in amazing amounts of pain, and couldn’t sleep through the night…even the simple act of breathing hurt with my bruised lungs. 

The muscles in my back, neck and shoulders were so tight they were constantly locking up and waking me up during the night.

The first time I received Fire Cupping was the first night since the accident I was actually able to sleep through without being jarred awake by pain!

By getting regular Reiki, Massage and Fire Cupping, I was out of bed and back to my old self in 2 months instead of the 4-6 my doctors told me!

 With the element of Fire being such an important element to me in my spiritual development, I knew that I was meant to use it to help people heal, since my house fire in 1998 got me moving down my own healing path and introduced me to Reiki.

Fire is utterly transformational. It destroys…much like it left my house a black charred ruin and left me suffering 3rd degree burns over 30% of my body in the Burn Ward.

Fire also purifies and leads to rebirth…much like the Phoenix I became as I healed…you too will feel the amazing transformational healing this element will leave you with after a Reiki Fire Cupping Session.

The flow of the session begins with me warming up your tissue with some light massage, then the cups are administered and left to suction on your back and shoulders for some time while I perform Reiki on you.

After 15 minutes, the “Moving Cups” or “Dancing Cups” begin where the cups are slowly moved around your muscles to spread the relief and help work out stubborn knots and muscle tensions you have. The session ends with some ending massage strokes using cooling Arnica Gel mixed with Peppermint oil to help cool off your back, or where ever you have been cupped. It is important to know that although fire is used to create the suction and seal of the glass onto to your back, you will not feel the fire, and most clients report that the cups actually feel cold.

No burning will result of Fire Cupping either as the fire is literally in the cup for a second before the cup is administered to your skin.

It is very normal to have circles where the cups were attached to you which can vary in color from light pink to deep reddish/purple depending upon how tight the suctioning is and how much you have released. These circles are not burns, nor do they hurt and are known to fade usually within 2-3 days depending upon their darkness. The darker the circles, the longer they take to fade.

I have taken this ancient healing modality and mixed it with the Japanese energy modality of Reiki to create Reiki Fire Cupping.

I created a specialized way of replacing healing Reiki energy into the energetic “holes” the cupping leaves you with after the cups suction out toxins and emotional blockages leaving you with a renewed energy, peace and energetic glow.

If you are looking for deep release physically, as well as emotionally…Fire Cupping is right for you. This Ancient Chinese modality moves lymph, clears the lungs, penetrates muscles to work out deep knots and smooths out fascia. On an emotional level, it is perfect for suctioning out of you all that you are finished with…people, addictions, self limiting beliefs, emotional pain…we can work on cutting the emotional and energetic cords you have to any of these things within our Reiki Fire Cupping session.

There is reason to believe Fire Cupping dates from as early as 3000 B.C.; the earliest record of cupping is in the Ebers Papyrus, one of the oldest medical textbooks in the world. It describes in 1,550 B.C.Egyptians used cupping. Archaeologists have found evidence in China of cupping dating back to 1,000 B.C. In ancient Greece, Hippocrates (c. 400 B.C.) used cupping for internal disease and structural problems. This method in multiple forms spread into medicine throughout Asian and European civilizations.

Cupping in Europe and the Middle East grew from humoral medicine, a system of health ancient Greeks used to restore balance through the four “humors” in the body: blood, phlegm, yellow bile and black bile. This system was pervasive in European and Middle-East cultures at the time. Humoral medicine had a brief or short revival in European medicine in the 18th and 19th centuries, and cupping was used in this practice.

In the West, cupping therapy was part of the basic repertoire of clinical skills a doctor was expected to understand and practice until the latter part of the 19th century with some Eastern European countries such as in Poland and Bulgaria continuing to practice cupping therapy to the present. In parts of Western Europe there has been a recent upsurge in the interest from both public and academic perspectives. Societies like the British Cupping Society have contributed to its re-emergence. – Wikipedia

Reiki Fire Cupping Testimonials:

“Kristin is an amazing healer. I’ve been looking for someone to help me with fire cupping to help my body release toxins, de-stress and for relaxation. I had it done a couple of times before but my acupuncturist retired so I have been looking for someone to help me the way my former acupuncturist had. Kristin introduced me to something called “moving” cups and oh my gawd… it literally changed my life. The moving cups are basically fire cupping cups that get moved to trigger releases in key areas in your back. At first, I couldn’t understand what was happening but my body felt incredible physical and emotional release. It’s amazing. I wanted to understand what was happening and Kristin was very gentle in explaining things to me while she helped me get through the process. I am so SO grateful that I did this. I even took my teenage daughter to see her specifically for reiki. I’ve had Reiki done on me which was amazing and also had a tarot reading. She is truly gifted and very special!! I am scheduled to go back!! I’m very excited to have found her and HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER!!” -Alma Vivian Marquez, Pico Riviera, CA

“Kristin/Abhayada is truly a gem.  I am ever so grateful to have met this amazing healer and cannot speak highly enough of her craft.  She has been instrumental to my state of health and well being over the last year.  I have received fire cupping therapy from a handful of professionals and this is the first time I have experienced a unique and creative way of utilizing this modality in combination with Reiki and massage therapy.  Kristin/Abhayada has created a practice that is simply divine!” – Sonya Schwartz, Owner of Golden Folk Wellness

“There is beauty in pain.
Thursday was the day. I finally went to see Kristin for a Fire Cupping session.
My goodness.
Kristin is truly a gifted healer and psychic.
I’ve known her for many years and have watched how her business has blossomed and bloomed.
Thursday I went the The Healing Woods. I went in sickly and unbalanced, from mental and emotional distress I’ve been feeling since my son’s death. I left with a feeling of renewal and strength again to continue my path towards healing and, ultimately, success.
Fire Cupping is an ancient technique thought to be be developed and used by the Chinese, and later, the Egyptians to heal and promote well being, among other things.
I used to think this kind (as well as other types of healing modality were too “New Age” or “Fluffy.” for me.
How wrong I was!
This is a powerful way to begin one’s healing process. In the comfort and serene setting, Kristin performed Fire Cupping followed by Reiki.
I discovered I’ve been holding onto a lot of suffering and rage buried deep within my soul. As the cups were moved and placed in various areas on my back, I knew that I was in the right place. I knew it was there but I kept it so hidden, I forgot it was there. However, my body didn’t.
Just wished I had gone in sooner.
There was lot of release happening.
And I came to peace with certain aspects of my life that have been burdening me and causing me needless distress.
I wanted to thank Kristin for sharing her wonderful gift of healing.
I also encourage anyone of you to experience this unique method. I have reminders of my recent experience upon my back.
Every morning since my visit, I see those reminders and smile.
Will I go back next month?
You betcha!” – Lucy Tate, Spiritual Teacher, Norwalk, CA

“Healing for the mind, body and soul. Kristin/Abahayada is a truly gifted healer who is talented in many modalities. I was able to take advantage of a package deal which included tarot and tea, followed by massage, reiki and fire cupping. I felt truly awakened and walking on air when I left. She has the unique talent and wisdom to connect and heal on many levels. When you speak, she’s listening and connecting. I highly recommend her. If you’ve never had reiki or healing work and you feel a little nervous about it, give her a try. She is very grounded and will totally set your mind and soul at ease.” – Denise Goddard, Owner of Merge framing gallery, Altadena, CA
