Cupping is a traditional therapy that has been practiced for millenia in China and in modern times is commonly combined with acupuncture treatment.
It is a great and natural way of helping the circulation for the body.
When apply cupping, we will create a vacuum a cup and then place it in accordance to the meridian system. As some tissue is drawn by the cup, it will draw toxins and old stagnant blood from deep within your body to the surface skin layers. This will enhance your circulation and metabolism, loosening muscles and encouraging blood flow. When cupping is combined with acupuncture, it enhances and hasten the healing process there is a deeper penetration, which is both relaxing but also pain relieving.
Cupping is believed to be able to penetrate the deeper tissues and draw toxins and blockages on to the surface area. In our clinic we use cupping to assist back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, and migraines symptoms.
