Cupping uses negative pressure rather than compression to the tissues, for remarkable results in a large scope of conditions.
Cupping therapy is one aspect of Chinese Medicine that you may not have heard about before. It is non-invasive and very effective.
The value of this therapy has been documented through thousands of years of historical data; with influences and popularity in Traditional Chinese Medicine and other healing methodologies. It is the oldest and most globally practiced medical treatment in human history.
The cup is positioned over the treatment area and a vacuum is created by reducing the pressure inside the cup, therefore stretching the underlying tissues up into the cup. These methods are often applied using glass cups which use thermal contraction to create the vacuum.
By creating suction and negative pressure, cupping releases rigid soft tissue, drains excess fluids and toxins, and brings blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles. Cupping can be used on its own or in conjunction with other treatments. Cupping is especially powerful when combined with acupuncture. Treatments are not only highly successful in delivering the desired results but also feel great. Cupping can allow for a very deep relaxation to move through the body.
Cupping is beneficial to all areas of the body with superior effects on the skin, muscles, circulatory system, nervous system, digestive system and joints.
