Health and wellness are terms used all over the place these days. Health might be fairly well understood but often, wellness as a term is poorly understood.

Cupping was described by Razi as a process in which blood from superficial small vessels located in muscles is released. It has been traditionally used for the treatment of painful conditions but has also been used to treat chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disorders, skin diseases, inflammatory disorders, and metabolic diseases
Deep Core For A Healthy Life
The deep core exercise is a functional exercise to stimulate the superficial and deep core muscles which are the most important muscles group in the body.

A strong core helps improve the performance of athletes as well as with day to day activities.

What you choose to eat, and what you choose not to eat, are factors in warding off many leading chronic illnesses and diseases.

The right diet can help fight conditions and illnesses like heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, cancer, and obesity among many others.
