Cupping Therapy

Cupping is an ancient Chinese therapeutic method of localized healing. The application of Cupping is very simple but its effects are dramatic.. It produces congestion by a partial vacuum, created in cups placed on the skin.

Due to the wonderful pulling power and heat that the cups offer, the technique is dramatic in its reduction of pain and hence our feeling of well-being. It is very helpful in opening the meridians and can also affect the body tissue within up to four inches to release toxins, activate and clear the circulatory and lymphatic systems, activate the skin, clear stretch marks and help to improve varicose veins. It is one of the best deep massages available. It is safe and can be applied using heat or suction in the insertion of the cups.

What happens during a consultation?

A flame is used to remove any air inside the cup; it is then placed rapidly on the area of the body to be treated. This procedure creates a vacuum under the cup, which pulls the skin firmly, slightly raising the area underneath the cup.

Some of the benefits of Cupping include:

  • Relief from pain or stiffness in the muscles and tissues
  • Reduction of painful trigger points
  • Improves flexibility in muscles and overall range of motion
  • Reduces feelings of depression and anxiety
  • Relieves stress
